Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.

The Deserter: Chapter 3 – By Davek on TESO-RP

“Damn this dust.”

Dazog rubbed his eyes wearily. He had been walking nonstop through the night. He was accustomed to wearing his armor for a long time, but the added weight of the little girl bundled in his arms was beginning to become overbearing, his arms aching from hours of supporting her.

The Running Tree: Chapter TwelveBy Donovan Fouts on Elder Scrolls Off the Record

“How many times has Wrothelm been attacked?”

Rodyrick stopped walking and looked at Tristore with surprise. Since sending his son to Wayrest twelve days before, he had spent each morning in the same fashion. His First Captain would invite him, and him alone, to walk through the city streets. To its citizens, who were mostly soldiers and their families, these strolls appeared to be nothing more than officers making routine examinations of the fighters under their command. Though Rodyrick did take the opportunity to gauge the general sentiment of the population, Tristore showed from their first walk that his true motivations were something different.

Stars and ScribblesBy Triskele on TESOF

Dear mother,

You will hate this – I'm away from civilization once more. I write this by the light of the most modest of campfires and the silver sheen of the waning moons. I know you love the city, but there is no beauty like the stars in a desert's nightsky, and you should see it more often. Life is short, mother, so short. What I am doing right now, the purpose of me being in the desert... I may find out that life is even shorter than I bargained for. But I gave my word.

Theodyne Robillard of Hammerfell and The Daggerfall Covenant: Part 4 By Theodyne Robillard on TESOF

As Theodyne lay motionless on the cold stone floor, the necromancer began to prepare his alter to Molag Bal for sacrifice. When Theodyne's soul was transferred to the soul gem, his consciousness went with it, leaving behind just the empty shell of a man. But the elf blood running through his Breton veins allowed his soul and consciousness to connect with one another inside the gem. As the necromancer was preparing the alter for sacrifice, Theodyne, or rather his soul and his mind, began to journey into a land that was quite unknown to him, a land he had only heard stories and whispers of from the mouths of mages inside The Council of Arcanea. The realm that belonged to the Daedric Prince Molag Bal. The realm of Coldharbour....

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.

  • “Truthfully, it would depend on my character. When I get deep into Skyrim (as I often do), I find that my High Elf necromancer prefers strong but classy firebrand wine, but personally I always had a fondness for Talen-Jei's special drinks in the Bee and Barb; they were unique in the game and my main Breton mage werewolf liked to try an Argonian-made special. Never looked back, though I doubt he could remember much of them for how many of those he drank.” – Seth Grady
  • “If I had to pick, I'd say Colovian Brandy, because it was worth more than most and it’s brandy, which, although I'm a Nord, is better than mead.” - Jonathan Garrett Swenson
  • “Argonian ale, of course. It deserved a whole quest in Skyrim, so I want it.” – Adam Nyiri
  • “There is nothing more than a good flask of Cyrodilic brandy to get you going again—and to worship Sanguine, the Daedric Lord of debauchery.” – Giedrius Kuskys
  • “That would be very easy to answer. After I came home from a long, hard, tiresome night of stalking my next victim, massacring villages, and howling at the full moon, I'd like a nice, huge stein of mammoth milk.” – Inge Blink
  • “A simple bottle of Matze is good, but the Velvet LeChance and the White-Gold Tower from Riften's Bee and Barb hits the spot after sneaking in and out of a vampire's lair. Argonians know how to mix drinks.” – Quentin Mack

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!
