The Bal Molagmer was a secret guild of Dunmer thieves that stole from the rich and gave to the poor. The approximate age of this guild remains unknown, but according to records with the libraries of Vivec City the Bal Molagmer were formed before the Battle of Red Mountain and before the War of the First Council altogether. During the late First Era and the Second Era, the Bal Molagmer prospered, having no rival guilds. But in the beginning of the Third Era the influx of outlanders placed a lot of power in the hands of the Thieves' Guild, while the growing nationalism of the Dunmer and the rise of the Great House Hlaalu allowed the Camonna Tong to become a buffer for the thieves from the west. Obviously, the Bal Molagmer were soon swept away due to conflicts with the Thieves' Guild and a lack of newcomers. In the waning days of the Third Empire, also known as the Septim Empire, a group of enthusiasts in the Thieves' Guild attempted to resurect the old order of gallant bandits. Unfortunately, the Bal Molagmer had picked the wrong time to return. The Bal Molagmer were quickly, and completely forgotten in the following centuries.

HistoryEdit

Formation and Early HistoryEdit

In the past, the Bal Molagmer were a secret guild, somewhat like the Twin Lamps of Morrowind, of thieves, that "stole from the rich and gave to the poor". The approximate age of this guild remains unknown, but according to records with the libraries of Vivec City the Bal Molagmer were formed before the Battle of Red Mountain and before the War of the First Council altogether. Many sources point to its roots as being from the Summerset Isles. The Bal Molagmer used to carry hot rocks from Red Mountain, which were used in their early primitive intiation rituals. The volcano was never a safe place, but it became even more dangerous after the Battle of Red Mountain. Many doubt that the Bal Molagmer would have dared to approach it just to collect rocks. Then again, many other sources, point to the rocks being a legend, made up by those who the Bal Molagmer helped.

During the late First Era and the Second Era, the Bal Molagmer prospered, having no rival guilds. But in the beginning of the Third Era the influx of outlanders placed a lot of power in the hands of the Thieves' Guild, while the growing nationalism of the Dunmer and the rise of the Great House Hlaalu allowed the Camonna Tong to become a buffer for the thieves from the west. The outlanders felt safer with the Thieves' Guild, while most young Dunmer chose the Camonna Tong out of national pride. Nobody wanted to join an all Dunmer organization that did not have any political ties. Obviously, the Bal Molagmer were soon swept away due to conflicts with the Thieves' Guild and a lack of newcomers.

ReformationEdit

In the waning days of the Third Empire, also known as the Septim Empire, a group of enthusiasts in the Thieves' Guild attempted to resurect the old order of gallant bandits. Their efforts were commendable. The information had been spread, the Bal Molagmer were coming back. For then, the newly restored guild within a guild did not encounter any obstacles, because the Thieves' Guild and the Camonna Tong had locked their teeth at each other's throats and could not notice a potentially new power growing in one of them.

Later History and DissolutionEdit

Unfortunately, the Bal Molagmer had picked the wrong time to return. The Dunmer criminal arena was firmly held by the Camonna Tong and was supported by the Great House Hlallu, and to some extent even by the Morag Tong. With the fall of the Empire, most outlanders were drawn away and out of Morrowind and the Thieves' Guild crumbled, but also managed to destroy itself and its enemy, the Camonna Tong, in one blow, turning an invisible conflict into an all out war. After the Empire disintegrated, House Hlaalu lost most of its power and the political scene of Morrowind was in chaos for quite some time. The Bal Molagmer needed support from one of the Great Houses and to support one of the Great Houses to form a guild, but none of the Great Houses needed such an unpredictable and illegal organization under their wing. The Bal Molagmer were quickly, and completely forgotten in the following centuries.
