The Running Tree: Chapter FiveBy Donovan Fouts

“The night was not as cool as the previous two had been, but the storm made it feel even colder. Torak thought Molag Bal himself had tracked him to the little copse of dirt and rocks where he had set up camp for the night.”

Question of the Week Answers

We’ve gathered up some of your answers to last week’s Developer Question of the Week. Watch the video to see the full question, and look for a new Developer Question of the Week this Thursday.

  • “I would have to say my favorite dungeons were clearing out bandit hideouts (above and below ground), avoiding their traps, taking out sentries silently and discovering secret passages (the loot was nice, too). I made it a 'game' within the game to see how long I could go without raising the alarm of my presence. That was fun!” - Bill Crroll
  • “I remember sneaking through a vampire-infested cave in Oblivion. I hadn’t realized there was a vampire behind me, very close. When I turned, his face was the only thing I saw on the screen and it actually made me yelp out loud as if someone jumped out and scared me.” - Sabrina Rockefeller
  • “I was walking through a forest when I came upon an Ayleid ruin. After fighting my way through some undead, I finally reached the end where a treasure awaited (can't remember what it was, some sort of gem?). I walk up the stairs, pick it up, and suddenly a lich appears and a hundred skeletons start pouring out from everywhere. I made it out in the end, but it felt like an epic adventure all on its own and I found it by walking through the woods instead of taking the roads. It was my own unscripted adventure and my friends never found it through their playthroughs. That is why I love The Elder Scrolls series." - Alberto Jose Nunez
  • “The Aetherium Forge was awesome. You collect the 4 aetherium shards from 4 other dungeons first, then the boss fight is 3 waves of enemies followed by the forge master, a huge Dwemer centurion. This is how I imagine ESO will be like. Then you choose a quest reward by forging a crown, shield, or staff.” - Loren Fisher
  • “I was adventuring outside Markarth towards my next goal when I found an odd looking door in the side of a hill leading to a bandit lair. When I went in, there was a little adventure all of its own about bandits who had their home invaded by Falmer. At the end of the cave, the bandit leader was dead on a table, still holding his uniquely enchanted weapon, the Longhammer. I was a two-handed hammer user at the time I found it. I used that weapon for the whole game, and the way I found it was my favorite part.” - Ben Kaeding
