Footage of Lady N (cosplaying as Hitgirl
in the second Fireside Chat; MK had similar attire
) in a Skype chat with MK. A distorted voice, presumably Lady N's, repeats "Michael". An automated voice states, "You have two saved messages". A Morrowind or Oblivion combat track plays possibly in reverse in the background. The message at the end is "You said we would play it".
Uploaded with the description "Michael Kirkbride and Lady Nerevar talk about Cyrus, Redguards, and more." (Referencing the Fireside Chats)
plays in the background, and the Bethesda logo as it appears upon Skyrim start-up is shown. A fountain pen writes "You said it would play us". A drawing in MK's style is shown (seen here
). Includes a link to this page
, which is a picture of this page

Footage of MK is shown. dinmenel
's forum avatar is displayed many times, notably overlayed onto an image of Lawrence Shtick, the Lead Loremaster of TESO. This tool
was used to create the avatar, but neither "dinmenel" nor "Lawrence Shtick" return the same avatar (though it's possible it's entirely random). Harvest Dawn
plays (correct me if I'm wrong--it's definitely an Oblivion track, but I'm not sure if I linked the right one), among other sounds - a voice saying "recording" (Lady N Skyping again?) and "I watched you as you disappeared", sampled from Tom Waits' "Watch Her Disappear" from his 2002 album Alice. The footage and the song is taken from this video
. The same video is linked on the words, "seems like we can never have it again" in his post the same day
. Near the end, two images flash up (seen here
Uploaded with the description "disappeared".
Footage from The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots
is shown. An x-ray of a rib-cage and lungs flashes with the overlayed text: "...and why are they...especially favored...with immortality...why no immortal...". Seemingly randomly generated ASCII characters are displayed with "authenticate?". Later, the words "initiated transmission" are displayed. "Transmission failure" and "message memospore?" flash. Throughout the video, images ofcandles
(possible 8 lit and 1 unlit), a tree, a heart, a depiction of Lokapala, and Tiber Septim as he appears in Redguard
are shown, as well as the ancient Nordic symbols of a hawk and snake as they appear in Skyrim. There is footage of what appears to be a Bollywood film.

Later, several people emailed the memospore gmail account
and received this message:
" &--#60;memospore corrupt&--#62;
What are dragons and why are they especially favored with immortality? Why no immortal bears? And the Gods knew that they had to depart the Mundus, to let it cool. It is the rumbling of the Greybeards that wake him."
, openable on notepad, came with the message. Opened on notepad, the text comes out to this
The hidden message is, "&--#60;memospore corrupt&--#62; ... What are dragons and ... why are they ... especially favored with ... immortality ... Why ... Why ... Why ... no immortal bears? ... And the Gods knew that they had to depart ... the Mundus ... It is the rumbling ... of the Greybeards ... that wake him." The same message as earlier.
Another file recieved came out, reading this
The hidden message is,
"and yet mankind was still vulnerable
in their world and
would know no
foul and alien hegemonies and"
We last received a code key
from MK, with the following text:
"Boma Kuro (V.O. - CONT'D)
From my apartment I can see past the walls
into the black cloud of their presence.
Behind all that smoke are the indistinct
yurts and horned-skulled posts of the
Kothringi nomads, meant to ward off the
indecencies of the city."
