The Pledge Of Vigilance

Anonymous

The Elder Scrolls



Know O pilgrim, the Stars' command:

Be ever vigilant, in both the blinding days and star-blessed nights. Even behind great walls, the People are imperiled by gray-men, and Goblin-kin, and wild beasts. Within the hall as well, the People may fall to plotting and poor counsel. The warrior must keep watch and act when cause is given, for vigilance is the walls that protect the warrior's temple.

Pledge to be vigilant, as the Stars command.
