If he had anything to do with most of the nonsense lore, then no. He shouldn't.

I'm not really up to speed on who wrote what... but each 'god' (or Deadra) having 16 aspects, 107 different names, all of which exist simultaneously and vary depending on culture...

I think you see where I'm going there.

And Ebonarm. Whichever third grader wrote that shouldn't have gone on to fourth grade.

Do they need (new) talent? Undeniably. I do not believe rehashing some of the stuff they've already done (in theory, or in practice) is acceptable.

Isn't he responsible for Dwarves being skin? Yeah... no thanks.

^I just...

A lot of TES lore is pretty damn good. The issue I've got is that for every 'cool thing' there's a few mind-numbingly ridiculous 'stupid things' which just make you take a step back. I mean, unless I'm mistaken about this, at least one grown adult wrote this stuff, with at least one more grown adult saying, "Yeah... that's good. Let's put that in."

The aspect thing in my eyes at least isn't that hard to get, same with diffrent names for same gods.

Look at the Greek and Roman pantheon for example, pretty much the same gods, with some tweaks here and there and a new name. That's just my take on that part.

Some of it is just plain ass weird though, don't get me started on chim or some of the other nonesense in that lieu as well. I get the jist of what Chim is but it's still plain ass weird, and is basically the lore way of saying Retcon.

On the topic at hand, no, contribute? Eh maybe. But I'm leaning towards no.
