Who says they are using a backpack.

There aren't even any backpacks in vanilla skyrim.
Who says they aren’t?

So, been back into this game lately (And I'm surprised the thread is still going). Anyone know of any lesser-known secrets in this game? I mean, some secrets are only that by technicality (such as the ebony knight), and given how much stuff is in the game, I'd bet that some things are still pretty unknown.

Unless you plan on playing something with me, don't friend me on Steam. I try to keep the list as small as possible and only with people I know IRL or want to play a game.

I wasn't aware of the Ebony Warrior, huh.  Never leveled that much.
Quote from: An unregistered Wikia poster, explaining why the EW isn't dragonborn
The thu'um is a type of tonal magic. Nords learnt it from the dragons (specifically Parthurnax). Redguards taught it to themselves and called it sword singing, it was the same thing. The Dwemer also taught it to themselves and made a seperate school of magic for it. The Dwemer, unlike Nords, Redguards and Dragons, channel the power through their hands.
There are so many secrets that I just haven't encountered, so many books I could read more carefully or at all.  And old games to play through.

It's more accurate to say that the dwemer and redguards used tonal mechanics, not that their things were a subset of the thu'um. It's Tonal Mechanics -> all those things; not Tonal Mechanics->Thu'um-> all those things.

All magic might be considered music of a sort, it's just that the more structured type most people encounter is a bit more abstracted from it. Sword-singing, tonal architecture, the Thu'um and the
Selectives dancing on the Tower are all obvious cases, but what are somatic or verbal components of spells except dancing and singing?

Though by that reasoning, swinging a sword while screaming is also dancing and singing, even if there's no explicit swordsong or thuum attached.

Which is also plausible, mind, but if literally everything is another chord in The Song That Is The World it rather depreciates the value of calling it such.

The Elder Scrolls are the written 4th-wall-breaking ballad of the singular allfather, Eru Ilúvatar.

I don't see why, since the all-encompassing nature of Music is the entire reason that changing the tune has physical effects.

I had a theory once that the Akaviri might do something similar with body-motions (martial arts), and that the different Akaviri races we've heard of may just have different prominent styles/schools, with correspondingly different tonal effects (and of course the different spiritual/philosophical internal "motions" so-to-speak to accompany the literal motions of different martial arts). Thus, they may in fact be human (though practicing reality-warping arts could plausibly make them look different).

Just had a mental image of a dwemer waving his hands feverishly, trying to get his fingers to hum from the air passing through them.

A bit like those generated musical instruments in DF, like the brick that sings a high C by shaking it violently.
