The Chosen One's success is a matter of the heroes own ability, rather than being The Chosen One. You are not the only "chosen one" at the Cavern of the Incarnate, all who failed even though they were The Chosen One, because their skills (or reasoning) was not enough. Further it is noticed that it may just all be a set up in a Daedra revenge plot (Vivec will not it is possible in one of the papers he gives you). Finally when you encounter Dagoth Ur you can tell him you are a Self-Made Man and the prophecy has no impact on you. If you do this he thinks highly of you for it.
Cliff Racers are DaedraThey are servents of Mehrunes Dagon. Their purpose; distract the adventurers until his armies can invade...
Fargoth is behind everythingRemember that Wood Elf in Seyda Neen? The one who asked you about his ring? He's actually an immortal psychic wizard god who masterminded everything. That ring you found? It was enchanted to alter you so that you would become the Nerevarine! It also altered the artifacts that you would eventually touch (Wraithguard, Keening, and Sunder) So that, rather then destroy the heart, it would send it to him. He is truly The Chessmaster.
The Kefka Burial inside Urshilaku Burial Caverns is where Kefka Palazzo himself has been sealed away.Tamriel is actually where the final battle took place between Terra Branford and Kefka Palazzo thousands of years ago in Final Fantasy 6. Because of his godlike magic, Kefka wasn't actually killed. Terra merely used her magic and the magic of her companions to seal Kefka away forever. The Elder Scrolls timeline is a point in the rebuilding of civilization after Kefka's apocalypse. Just be grateful the Nerevarine didn't get careless and set Kefka free... right?
Divayth Fyr is MalacathOf the four artifacts that Divayth owns, three are associated with the daedric prince malacath: scourge, volendrung and the cuirass of the saviour's hide. In addition, he is the owner of the corprusarium, protector of the last dwarf and took in an ostracized argonian, all of whom are the spurned people that Malacath is associated with. Not to mention that Divayth does several god-like things, like his creation of life and making a cure for a disease created by a god.
Dagoth Ur and Nerevar were loversSome of the actions that Dagoth Ur takes toward the Nerevarine start to make a lot more sense. For example, telling the Nerevarine that he really wants to have him/her back while sending sleepers and the corprus disease, evidence of an abusive relationship. This would also help explain why Dagoth Ur is so desperate to have the Nerevarine, even if the player takes the path of not actually being a reincarnation.
Gaenor acquired the Skeleton KeyOne of the greatest mysteries in Morrowind is the Bosmer "entrepreneur," Gaenor. He starts out as a lowly level 1 pauper who constantly begs the Nerevarine for money. Then, over the course of three days, he becomes a level 50 warrior, decks himself out in a full suit of Ebony Armor, and gets an insanely high Luck Stat that makes him almost Nigh Invulnerable. How could he have possibly have accomplished all this in such a short amount of time? The Thieves Guild questline in Skyrim provides the answer. Over its course, we find out that Nocturnal is not only the Daedric Prince of night, but of luck as well. Likewise, whoever bears Her artifact, the Skeleton Key, is gifted with an immense amount of luck that will make all his/her endeavors profitable. It also has the ability to unlock everything, including human potential. So by getting it, Gaenor quickly became immensely rich, powerful, and lucky. Oh, and the Skeleton Key you can get in Morrowind? Not the same thing. That's not the Skeleton Key of Nocturnal, that's just a skeleton key, a special key that can open most any lock that just effectively acts like a high quality lockpick.
Vivec is a crack RPF writer.Come on, this is the guy who wrote the 36 Lessons of Vivec where he paired himself with freaking Molag Bal. He's probably got some Nerevar/Dagoth fanfic lying around somewhere. And on a similar note, he probably runs ff.net too.
Almalexia acted the way she did in Tribunal out of guilt and a need for revenge.This turns Almalexia into a Draco in Leather Pants, but bear with me. One thing that struck this troper as odd was how Sotha Sil was described as a reclusive introvert, and yet was able to convince an entire nation of people that their skin turning to ash was a good thing. Sure, maybe it was his new god powers that let him do it, but Sotha Sil was a powerful wizard even before godhood. What if he used a mass charm spell on the new Dunmer people to help him calm them down? Even without his god powers (as some sources say the Dunmer curse was put on the Chimer before the Tribunal's ascension), he was powerful enough he might have been able to do it. Almalexia killing Sotha Sil and wanting to kill Vivec doesn't make much sense in the game, but in the Trial of Vivec it's implied that Vivec killed Nerevar in order to have Almalexia. Therefore, taking that information and the paragraph above, what if Vivec had Sotha Sil used a charm spell on her to make her turn on Nerevar? Especially as Nerevar is painted as a saint (if a na´ve one) who has the best of intentions and couldn't hurt a fly. If Almalexia genuinely hated her husband, or if Nerevar was actually a bad person, wouldn't she have had him portrayed as much worse in the history books? What if she found out what Vivec had Sotha Sil do, and the Tribunal expansion was all about getting revenge? As for her turning on the Nerevarine, they DO say that guilt drives you mad...
Vivec wasn't the anticipation of Mephala...... He was the anticipation of Sheogorath. To be more accurate, his goal was to challenge the dunmer people by invoking their most significant mental weakness, their blind faith (which was sheogorath's role as part of the house of troubles). As such, he provides them with obviously false religious materials. Most obviously, there are the 36 sermons, but there is also the naming of lie rock (in which the ministry of truth resides). So far, the dunmer haven't actually caught on yet, much to his disappointment.
The Mudcrab Merchant was an aspect or servant of Sanguine.He's drunk and has alcoholic beverages on hand. Makes perfect sense.
