The Pledge Of Simplicity

Anonymous

The Elder Scrolls



Know O pilgrim, the Stars' command:

Seek simplicity and abstain from profane pleasures. You must not wallow, as beasts do, in filth and mire. Nor should you dwell in a house of gold and blessed red stone. In all things seek cleanliness and austerity. Do not share the cup of the debauched or break bread at the lot-caster's table. Simple blades must be clean and sharp. For a simple warrior is an unburdened warrior, ready for whatever comes his way.

Pledge to be simple, as the Stars command.
