Saint Jiub the Eradicator of the Winged Menace

When we settle down to carve the turkey this Thanksgiving, we should take a moment to recall another bird that was carved in the Third Era, Year 431 of the Elder Scrolls, on the volcanic island of Vvardenfell. Ah yes, the dreaded Cliff Racer.

The repentant Dunmer Jiub set out to rid the land of this blighted menace, and did much to accomplish his noble aim.

In the end Jiub was led into a trap, and though he was assaulted by a murder of at least 76 Cliff Racers, proved victorious after two days of unrelenting battle. Vivec Himself bestowed sainthood upon Jiub, conferring upon him the title “Saint Jiub the Eradicator of the Winged Menace.”

I say we should remember the Cliff Racer in all its horror as we sit down to feast tomorrow. When remembering these foul…birds, scourge upon the fair province of Morrowind, we can be truly thankful for the works of the great Saint Jiub.

Joseph Culp remembers the annoyance of the Cliff Racer all too well.
