Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.


A Game of Chance: Chapter 3By Iogairn on TESOF

Iogairn mounted his horse, strung his bow and pulled the hood over his face. He was ready. Looking down onto the path from his spot in the woods, he saw the Imperial was behind his two Nord henchman, each on horseback, with a fourth horse lagging behind, carrying all his jewels and money. His very large amount of money, he corrected himself. He almost laughed. If he didn’t want revenge he could quite easily just take the horse. But he did. He wanted it so much...
He kicked the horse into action and it leapt about twenty yards away from the group.
“Good morning!” he shouted at them, raised his bow and fired an arrow. It hit the first Nord in the gullet.
The Imperial looked shocked for a second before shouting at the Nord before shouting, “Well kill him then!” The Nord rode towards Iogairn and Iogairn threw down his bow, drew his sword and rode towards him.
It would be an epic battle to boast of. Life and limb at risk to see who was the greater in combat.
Oh sod it he’d learned his lesson.


The Embassy: Chapter 3By Akitcougar on The Tamriel Travler

Jone and Jode had gone through one cycle since I was incarcerated. My days settled into a routine. During the day, the Thalmor interrogators would take me down to the cells and attempt to get information out of me.
They tried lightning, frost, and fire, but all I would give the interrogators was a badly off-key version of Song of the Dragonborn. They all despised the song. I’d gained several new scars all over my body due to my insolence. Thankfully though, S’rendarr the Runt protected me from the worst of the pain.
Sheggorath only knew what the constant injuries did to my mind. I knew I was going mad, but some part of me remained sane enough to recognize and hide the madness.


Sahar - Seeking an OrderBy Triskele on TESOF

Sentinel never failed to amuse her.

The city was one of Hammerfell's jewels, the second largest stronghold of the country, sitting on the edge of the Iliac Bay like a gem on top of a crown, looking over the world. Beyond the city's walls, barren plains and rocky, inhospitable hills surrounded Sentinel, offering no fertile soil nor any comfort before the land stretched out into the even more harsh climate of the Alik'r Desert. But despite what unforgiving surroundings the city had, it was a merchant power, with a market unlike any other, overlooked by the oldest and largest palace in all of Hammerfell. The cosmopolitan inhabitants of Sentinel looked to their own, ever busy like ants building their own utopia through what they knew best – trade. Hammerfell's nobility loved residing here, to rest in their manors and exotic gardens at day's end before they'd go to the Theatre. A jewel, this city. A shining diamond locked by endless miles of nothing.

Sahar of Gilane could appreciate it.

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.

  • “For me, the most important and the most fun part of character creation is the tattoos. With tattoos, one can make up tales of how they fought in battles, or achieved great victories. Another thing one can do is to use it as a symbol of who you are. Someone perhaps with a skull tattoo may try to be saying how dangerous they are. Others may use it to represent that they are part of a guild. There are infinite uses for tattoos, and that is why it is so important to me.” – Max Clark
  • “Everything is important in Character Creation! It determines who you are in contrast to other players. But as Argonian fan I really like to see different textures, horns and jaw styles. Also I like to change the tail if the option is available.” – Bert Hoekstra
  • “I think that the most important part of creating a character is the ability to have many different colors, facial structures, body sizes, hair styles, and basically many options to make your character unique and not just something like someone else made. I enjoy TES games because they have that option that many other games lack.” – Rynn Oak
  • “Personally, I want to see more control over weight for characters. Hey, not everyone is a sword-swinging, spell-slinging, bad-guy-stomping adventurer! Real roleplayers will appreciate what I'm talking about.” – Belrain Stormbow
  • “For me it's about designing a character around what I intend to do with that character. If I'm making a Nightblade, for example, I'd want my character to have the option of looking dastardly. Options pertaining to class personality are important for me as far as character customization goes.” – Jason Heir
  • “I love tons of hairstyles so everyone doesn't end up choosing the same one. Secondary is adjusting size/height. It just seems to add another level of interest and personality.” – Amber Ross
  • “I can't even think of a response, his beard is just so awesome and distracting.” – Tarzan Boes
