Ancient Edict

This is a transcription of a note called “Ancient Edict”, which you can find if you’re running the Immersive College of Winterhold mod in Skyrim, and in particular running the Fall of Winterhold quest it provides. The note is rendered in a very small font that could make it tough to read for some users, so I have transcribed it here.

Blood of the traitor Beinaarkh, unwillingly taken.

Seat of the power that broke his head.

Separate forever so bones lie dead,

and blue wings ne’er again glide.

Good friend for Ysmir sake abide.

Else burn like the souls who worshipped pride!


Here is a screenshot of the note in question, taken during my modded Skyrim playthrough on my Steam Deck.
