Emblazoned with the word “Dovahkiin” written the Dragon Language of Skyrim. A square-shaped ring, handmade from roller-printed 925 sterling silver. Antiqued to evoke the gritty old-world feel of Skyrim. Size 7. Will be posting the process photoset shortly.
The first edition PGE mentions that there are 250 miles between Red Mountain and Mournhold. This measure also coincides with the scale used in Daggerfall, which Bethesda claims is 1:1.
Tamriel is about 1400 miles across (from Daggerfall to Necrom), and about 900 miles north-south (from Winterhold to Senchal). The road between Tel Branora and Dagon Fell is 297 miles. The path from Gnisis to Sadrith Mora cutting through Vvardenfell is about 200 miles. These would be on foot journeys of 12 and 8 days, respectively.
Using Inkscape, a map was scaled to 1 pixel=1 sq. mi. Then an outline was around each province, and the areas inside each path measured. This produced square mileages that should be almost exact. Without further ado, here is each province compared to the country with the closest area:
Tamriel: 918,000 mi2 (Algeria, or 1.4 Alaskas)
Skyrim: 121,000 mi2 (Poland)
Cyrodiil: 200,000 mi2 (Yemen)
[Rumare Is.]: 3200 mi2 (Puerto Rico)
Morrowind: 158,000 mi2 (Sweden)
[Vvardenfell]: 31,000 mi2 (Czech Republic)
High Rock: 58,000 mi2 (Nepal)
Hammerfell: 115,000 mi2 (The Philippines)
Valenwood: 84,000 mi2 (Guyana)
Elsweyr: 89,000 mi2 (Romania)
Black Marsh: 118,000 (Italy)
Summerset Isles: 81,000 (Belarus)

Word of the Day - VAH / spring
“Vah” is the Dragon word for “spring”, and is the second Word of Power in the Clear Skies Shout, “Lok Vah Koor”, or “Sky Spring Summer”. It is learned from the Greybeards to ascend the Throat of the World. The months which encompass Spring include First Seed, Rain’s Hand, and Second Seed.
