*** its possible that its a perception thing, I.E you are going to a deadric princes area so you expect to see a hellscape (I think one NPC in a Deadric hell realm thought it looked like a beautiful landscape) or the PC just Assumes that this place is Peryites, I assumed that the maps you look at in the menu are all drawn/wrote by the PC hence explaining the fog of war you have on all of them until you explore, he marks landmarks as he sees them on his map for convience, so Peryite sends you to a Deadric place and your guy naturally marks it down as Peryites realm.

*** some of Sheogoraths' dialog states that the one you encounter in Skyrim is[[spoiler: the PC from Oblivion, and that his time as Seogorath has made him as insane as his previous incarnation.]]

** It's worth noting that in Elder Scrolls Online Molag Bal does actually invade during the interregnum, though he does require a ritual involving the Dragonfires and Amulet of Kings to be performed first.

**** Mentioned over on the ''Skyrim'' Headscratchers page: the barrier prevents the Daedra from threatening Nirn, not from manifesting in it. Sheogorath, Sanguine and Barbas (and Hircine, and Nocturnal) are just hanging out, relaxing and doing their thing and not putting the world in peril, so they get to stick around.

*** Because then they just use regular cheese, or cook non-cheese foods, which doesn't draw the rats any more than usual. The Khajiit who owns the cheese museum says that it's the especially pungent cheese that would draw the rats, hence why you can't just put any cheese in the pot and fulfill the prophecy. And besides, their priest absolutely hates rats, mentions that he carries rat poison with him everywhere just to be safe, and immediately massacres the swarm of rats once you do draw them in. So even if the village was full of rats before, it wouldn't stay that way with Ri'Bassa acting as village exterminator.

** Basically, yes. Martin is literally the only person who can relight the Dragonfires and stop the invasion permanently, but to get the Amulet of Kings to allow him to do so requires that you let the Great Gate open (to get the Great Sigil Stone). The Mythic Dawn/daedra picked Bruma to attack because it's closest to where Martin is, same as Kvatch. It's not that destroying a random city in Cyrodiil is going to bring about the downfall of the Empire, it's that allowing the Mythic Dawn to kill Martin would.

* At the end of the Thieve's Guild questline, Countess Carona of Anvil yells out to [[spoiler: The Grey Fox, who is actually her husband]] that: I'll deny it to the Emperor if I have to! [[spoiler: with regards to the Grey Fox's true identity.]] Um...she ''is'' aware the Emperor's dead, right?

** Let's not forget that eventually [[TheElderscrollsVSkyrim Elves practically write you out of the history books]] Not that it matters because you're Sheogorath now and have better things to do.

** Prior to Martin's Sacrifice Daedra could cross into Nirn whenever summoned or even on their own at times, however Daedra are not as powerful in Nirn as they are in their own realms. Azura could not take on the Tribunal and she knew it, it would have been one out of her element Daedric Prince vs Three Living Gods. Further Dagon invaded Nirn a couple of times, during the war between Morrowind and the Empire back in Tiber Septim's day, Dagon was summoned by a sorcerer in Mournhould and ended up destroying the city in one of the worst Daedric attacks in Tamrielic histoy, but Amsivi were able to banish him back to oblivion. Dagon was trying to not just invade and destroy Nirn in Oblivion but take it over entirely, in essence merging his sphere with Nirn, which was far more ambitious and required the barriers between realms to be weakened. Plus by the time of Oblivion Red Mountain was gone, as was the Numidium and the Tribunal, as Dagon wanted all of Nirn these are things he would have had to deal with and may have been too much to overcome.
