The Tel Mora Independent Press is run by a collection of die-hard Elder Scrolls fans who volunteer their time to ensure that our publication is a success. We are 100% non-profit, don’t believe in advertising revenue, and thrive solely on passion for the franchise and love for the written word. While a vast majority of our content comes from various members of the community, spanning from casual artists and writers to well-known lore aficionados, the editorial staff of The Tel Mora Independent Press is detailed below.
Editor in Chief
I’ve been involved in the Elder Scrolls community since Morrowind, which was also my first foray into the lore. I have a degree and endorsements in English Education and History Education, with experience in journalism, including photography, newswriting, cartooning, and publication design. I’ve been on staff of multiple publications, from high school newspapers to collegiate campus publications and beyond. In particular I served as the Art Director for The Easterner at Eastern Washington University and was on the staff of Spokane Falls Community College’s The Communicator which won an Online Pacemaker Award.
I’ve penned works such as SL0DA, The Sload Creation Myth, and Dreams, Perceptions, and other Philosophies. My favorite authors are HP Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and Bram Stoker, and many of their literary mannerisms tend to find a place in my writing.
As the Editor in Chief, it is my responsibility to make sure The Tel Mora Independent Press is as professional and polished as possible. I’m in charge of overseeing all aspects of the publication, including page design, website management, and acquiring content for both the website and the publication itself.
I’ve been a fan of Elder Scrolls since Morrowind, but I didn’t take the deep dive into the lore until about 6 years ago. I learned of CHIM, the Dreamer, and The Tower and the world of Elder Scrolls opened up to me. Now it’s incredible the amount of esoteric lore I now know and there is still so much more for me to learn.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, which I feel gives me some understanding of the cultures of Tamriel and beyond, particularly how cultures relate to myth.
My interests in Elder Scrolls mostly focus on its mythology and metaphysics. I am particularly interested the Structure of the Dreamsleeve, its Dreams and the Sharmat, or Aggregate as it is also known.
I have written the Songs of the Sharmat and I am the creator of the Esrimer, of which I have published only one story, Ka Creation Myth: Temple of the Perfect Tone.
Pen Name: Khajiiti M&M
I’ve been enthralled with The Elder Scrolls series since TES IV: Oblivion. I immediately fell in love with the religions and mythologies of the races of Tamriel—no Spirits are more fascinating than the Daedric Princes and no mortals are more intriguing than the Khajiit. I was always an amateur lover of TES’ lore, but I was welcomed into an online community by several Lorebeards in the late summer of 2018. I’ve learned so much and there’s still farther to go—for now, “Lorekitten”—and I’ve found my niches: the Daedric Prince Namiira and poetic apocrypha written in syllabic verse. I’m a graduate student earning my M. S. in Marriage & Family Therapy and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. The only hobby I’ve ever managed to keep in my life is reading: fantasy, horror, poetry, history, theology, mythology, and, obviously, psychology; my favorite authors include J. R. R. Tolkien, Michael White, Stephen King, and John Milton. A lifetime of reading and academia has given me an eye for literary detail, which helps me serve The Tel Mora Independent Press as one of the copy editors.

ESO and Twitter: @TheLoneAccenter
Most good things in life don’t/won’t/can’t overlap with each other, but The Elder Scrolls is a happy medium for someone like me. As an 11 year old, I first found myself exposed to Skyrim. As the years passed, I found a little void in myself. Over time, I filled it with Oblivion, ESO, and a the TES Lore Community. It’s been about 5 years and counting since I jumped in, and my only regret was people knew me as Falmerii Princess or Princess Numidium for a while. I promise I am not cold and that I won’t thought bubble things at you. I am predominantly a lurker at the moment, as my big work (T.L.E.) is under wraps, but I can be found in the occasional Lorecast when I am not working or studying. On the note of studying, I am a current Spanish Education and Mass Communications (with a focus on Journalism) Double Major. What a mouthful, and what a time-eater those pesky degrees get to be. The Tel Mora Independent Press is right up my alley as a fan of TES and as a journalist. Previously, I was Editor in Chief of my high school paper. I am a published writer, interviewer, producer, and cinematographer. The Tel Mora Independent Press is the intersection between writing and lore I have been looking for, and I am so excited to contribute.
