Fan Fiction

Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.

Casting Shadows - Chapter OneBy BlytheAlarynn on TESOF

Life is merely a series of stories without an ending, and with each beginning comes a chance to create a new plot. Every story differs from its precursor, and it has the opportunity to be prodigious. Each life creates its own success and failure and continues on its own. However, sometimes fate has a hand in even the smallest and seemingly insignificant stories. This story is only a small sliver of a plethora of amazement and wonder.

The DeserterBy Davek on TESO-RP


Dazog sighed as he pulled his large sword out of the chest of the last goblin, letting it fall lifelessly to the ground. Dazog scanned the area around him; four more fiendish goblin corpses littered the crop field of the small farm he had been sent to liberate from these foul creatures. With a grunt he returned his greatsword to its sheath on his back, and hung his shield on his left hip.

SunriseBy Triskele on TESOF

The majestic black stallion calmly walked towards the gate, against the stream of people entering the city: tourists, merchants, pilgrims – all here to see the jewel of the Iliac Bay, try their luck, their mischief, or a bit of both. The steed sauntered at ease, used to any form of fuss, and people made way upon seeing his large hooves and his proud neck carrying his noble head. Dusk had a way of carrying his rider through crowds and problems like a trireme carried its captain through a storm. It's why Sahar was very fond of him.

Theodyne Robillard of Hammerfell and The Daggerfall Covenant: Part 1By Theodyne Robillard on TESOF

Upon deciding to pledge his allegiance to the High King Emeric and reclaim the honor of his families name, Theodyne set out for the land of his fathers before him, the lands of High Rock. He had heard there was to be summit in Wayrest where High King Emeric would be holding council with the most respected Archmages, military leaders, and lords of the lands of High Rock, and Theodyne intended to seek council with one of the representatives and plead his case for redemption. It was on a twilight evening that Theodyne found himself riding his horse just outside of Wayrest.

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.

  • “Who is M'aiq the liar? Where did he come from? How did he survive form the time in Morrowind to the rise of the Dovah?” – Sonny Wilson
  • “The most prominent mystery in TES which leaves me awake at night puzzled and searching for an answer is the origin of the sweet roll. When was it created, and who invented it? Was it made during the revolution against the Ayleid Lords as a symbol of freedom and rebellion by man? Perhaps was it an Akaviri delicacy, brought with its creators during the Akaviri invasion? Was it a creation of the Dwemer, using all their technology and innovative energy to create the perfect dessert? Whatever the origin, I hope that ESO will reveal the origins of the mysterious and elusive sweet roll.” – Max Clark
  • “I'd like to know more about how the Dwemer disappeared. But not everything! I enjoy mystery.” – Todd Withnall
  • “I have always found the Hist to be mysterious. Are they really sentient? How big is their role in the day-to-day life of the Argonians and how do they shape them? And what secrets could the Hist know of the history of Nirn?” – James Cain
  • “How did the Knahaten Flu get started? I'd love to figure that one out...” – Efrem Vercaigne
  • “Who were the Ayleids? Their ruins tell us very little, without much script, or even the fewest amenities of a home, all that seems to have remained is the traps, various undead, and Welkynd and Varla Stones which point only to an obvious grasp and supremacy over magicka. Even the libraries and tales of the Dwemer speak for the histories of the Nords, Dunmer, Chimer, and Falmer, but very little has ever been said or referenced to in relation to the ‘Wild Elves.’ Considering that The Elder Scrolls Online's primary battlefield will be the once homeland of the Ayleids, I can only hope that some of the lost information on the peoples can be uncovered.” – Jacob Frank
  • “Honestly it is not answers I seek, but rather more mysteries. These oddities keep the game interesting as we search for any little clue we can find, even if we never find a full answer.”  – John Derden

We hope you enjoyed all the fan creations and news in this week’s issue of The Tamriel Chronicle. We’ll be back next week with more!
