Fan Fiction

Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.


Blood and Honour: Chapter 1 / Chapter 2 / Chapter 3By Kiran

After a cold starry night the grass plains of Cyrodiil glistened heavy with dew in the morning sun. Starlings danced in the sky with amazing precision and agility. Left-Paw-Alight watched in wonderment and pondered if their differing patterns meant anything. His long reptilian tail twitched unconsciously as his eyes followed their morning dance in the clear blue sky.
"So can they tell us how this battle will end?" Volk said in his usual booming voice breaking Paws' train of thought.
"Just that it will be a sunny day, filled with screams and blood." He said as he pointed across the grass plain at the approaching Aldmeri army.


The Tomb of Kings: An Elder Scrolls Novel By IceFireWarden on Tamriel Foundry

“What…is the song…of the ocean?”
The eerie, doom-laden voice issued forth from the glowing red door to the two figures cloaked in black. They stared at each other before continuing.
“Sorrow, my brother.” said the taller of the two.
“Welcome…home…”
The door to the abandoned Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary swung open, revealing a dark, dank tunnel leading far underground. The two recoiled as a sudden strong scent hit their noses. The smell of death.


The TavernBy Triskele on TESOF

With a stiffly set jaw she took a sip of her mead, ignoring the brawls, the yelling and the boasting which could be heard so loudly all around her in the tavern. It was a cold night, the fires were roaring and her people were doing what they did best: making noise. She sighed deeply and put her tin mug down, as another flew past her head, smashing against the wall behind her. I have not missed this place...
Across the table, her company filled her mug to the brim once more, not forgetting himself in the process. It made sense. Triskele was paying, after all.


Theodyne Robillard of Hammerfell and The Daggerfall Covenant: Part 6By Theodyne Robillard on TESOF

As Theodyne realized where he was, he lay perfectly still, for though he knew he were in a cave, he knew not why or how he had gotten there, or where the cave even was. More importantly, he did not know if he were alone. He laid still and remained quiet until he heard a voice echo through the cave. He knew this voice. The necromancer! he thought to himself. The one who took his soul was in the cave with him. He saw the light of a torch glistening across the cave wall as the necromancer approached and Theodyne closed his eyes. He would wait until the time was right, after all, he did not know if he could escape Coldharbour a second time and did not want to chance 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.

  • "I would invent a glove named Sheogorath's Touch. It would function similar to the legend of Midas, who turned whatever he touched into gold, except in this case, it would be cheese! In gameplay mechanics, it could turn things you kill into cheese, or maybe turn them into cheese temporarily as a form of crowd control. Sounds gouda to me! Ha, I'll stop now." – Matthew Cassel
  • "Edge of Oblivion: A Daedric sword that has a chance to rip reality apart and open a gate to Oblivion when it strikes, drawing forth something randomized from the gate, like a Daedra to fight by your side, a curse on the enemy or a boon for the player wielding the blade. Well, you get the deal, something chaotic and unpredictable." – Phille Åkerberg
  • "My bow would be called Tempest. The draw time one the bow would be average, but the longer you hold the bow drawn the more the power builds. Eventually, when released, it would be similar to a Fus Ro Dah. An explosion of wind energy releases similar to that of Hurricane force winds; the sheer force of the blast also would double the damage of the arrow that connected with its target." – Jonathan Whittaker
  • "I would want something non-combat related with a bit of humor in it. Sheogorath's Chaos Ring of Madness: when you put it on, nothing physically changes in the world—just your perception of it. Trolls may look like sheep, vendors like mud cabs, potatoes like deathbell flowers, two-handed swords like broom sticks, etc." – Veronica Rendon
  • "As a fan of the Khajiit, I would love to see an artifact based on their lore. Budi of S'rendarr: it is said that S'rendarr bestowed ornate fabric to the Clan Mothers of the many Khajiit tribes long ago. The fabric would appear later, sewn into the budi of healers during the Thrassian Plague in 1E 2260 where it is believed to have attributed saving the lives of many Khajiit. The budi wouldn't be seen again until the Knahaten Flu in Senchal after which it is believed the Alliance War had caused them to be lost throughout Tamriel. The effects of the artifact are similar to Gauntlets of the Crusader created by Stendarr in Oblivion's Knights of the Nine expansion." – Stephen Dauphinee
  • "The Metallurgist's Muse is a resource for crafting armor and jewelry that is not destroyed by the act of using it to make an item. Much like Azura's Star is to soul gems this item is to one or more smithing resources." – James Paul Herman
  • "I'd have a staff called Earthbone. It'd be empowered with the chaotic energies of nature before Y'ffre set it into an ordered existence. The wielder can use the staff to reshape nature as they saw fit, charming animals to their will, animating to plants to ensnare, or driving humanoid/sentient beings to madness—maybe even having them shapeshift into an animal of the Wild Hunt." – Nicholas Cancelliere


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!
