So as you may have guessed, Skyrim is the first TES game I've owned. I fooled around in Oblivion years ago with my cousin, but it was his game. And I just came out of the Dwemer ruin where you have to find the Cynod, and I've noticed there are absolutely no draconic.. well, anything. No word walls (that I'm aware of) no tombs, nothing. And I know the Dwemer pre-date the elves (Septimus says something about the Dwemer evolving or something into the modern elves I think, and tells you to go collect their blood to open his box) And I know that they enslaved the Snow Elves and blinded them in exchange for providing shelter from the Nords, but that' about it. So I'm just wondering if the Dwemer pre-date the Dragon Cult too?
Like I said, I've never found anything relating to the Dragon Cult in Dwemer ruins, and from what I understand, the Dragons ruled pretty much since their creation, until they were overthrown. So are they older then the dragons themselves, and went extinct before the dragons came about? Or was their magic/engineering capabilities so advanced they managed to avoid the whole event before going extinct?
Just trying to learn more about the game,
