That sounds quite fascinating. Would you mind if I compared notes with you? Matuul’s somehow got it in his mind to rebuild one of the old axeships.
Or, as he likes to put it, a “Vehkship”. Rubbish name, really, even if he did get it from the future.
Oh, I wouldn’t mind it a bit! You know, I’ve never understood why the other Telvanni are so fussy about the possibility that someone might see their notes and research and so forth. You’d think they’d realize that it might actually help them, but no, they don’t. But a Vehkship…dare I ask what that is at risk of sounding ignorant?
You know Matuul. Always dreaming about the good old times. Well, he recently got his hands on one of the false Tribunal’s texts when we looted Vivec’s ruins. It had a section on your predecessor’s… pursuits. He got to the bit with Nerevar’s axeship, which is a pity, really, since we never did get that damn thing moving very well.
And then came that Fifth Era thing, and now he’s going on about twisting the dragon and colonizing Masser and all that. It’s all very messy.
But enough about him. A Vehkship is effectively a portable Oblivion gate and airship rolled in one. We needed a reliable power supply, but we’ve been having trouble stabilizing the magicka-transfer conduits. Nothing big, really.
