Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.

A Nomad by Circumstances – By The Vagrant on TESO-RP

The sun rose over the fields of Cyrodiil and its golden rays fell gloriously against a sea of green and crimson. Had it been a few weeks earlier this beautiful region would have been a landmark of remarkable beauty. And yet now it was sullied with the blood of the fallen. Carrion vultures and crows blotted the sky with their dark silhouettes as they looked eagerly to the earth for a bountiful feast. In summer this place would have smelt of wildflowers and grass and other scents of the earth, yet now only blood and rot was in the air. To the North stood the tall giants of the Great Forest. And in the east could be seen the shimmering lake of Rumare set ablaze by the sun that glowed divinely upon it. The field was filled with dead elves and Breton alike, and the battle itself did not bode well for either side.

The Flaming Tavern - The Tales of Beor and Balgir – By Beor of Skyrim on TESOF

Loud banging was heard. The two companions stirred, even in their drunken state they heard the awfully loud noise. Beor and Balgir had hauled themselves up in the mead cellar of an inn down the road, leading south, over the Jerall Mountains and into Northern Cyrodiil. They were on yet another journey to take back their stuff from a sly wood elf thief, but in the mean time they had taken the time to pause and rest.

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 liked the Altmer with the disappointed parents. I think it's a funny look into more normal life for them, and puts people like the A**hole Thalmor in Skyrim into perspective. It's all about the upbringing.
    I also liked the Dunmer bit about how their ancestor-worship and that of the Nords aren't that different after all, with just a bit of Elven supremacy showing through. The two cultures aren't as different as they seem, esp in Skyrim with all the bigotry in Windhelm, and its nice to see that expressed. - Meaghan Carpenter
  • As a fellow Argonian asking, I ask Counts-His-Teeth, how do you feel being some far from the Marsh and the Hist, with the rest of the Pact? How are things different in those land and with the dryskins? And how did you choose your name to address yourself to them? - Eduardo Ortiz
  • I really liked the Shadowfen feature. I always thought the Argonians had a Aztec/Mayan feel to them and now ESO is elaborating on it. The weapon inscription sounded like it was engraved by a Shadowscale and the Note on the House Dres Slaver was the best. That's what I like about Argonians: They are the cynical sarcastic bad*sses of Tamriel. - LaJaveyon Saunders
  • Kahanad al-Hegathe. I can't help but wonder more of this Blade-in-training's adventure. Insect-like creatures always intrigue me, I love seeing another persons vision of what an insect-oid would look like, and Kahanad is traveling through insect territory ALONE! Plus his master, Frandar Hunding, was from Yokuda. Kahanad is going to become one major badass!!! Give me more! - Ryan Tripp
  • I was really curious about the High Elf son that had deeply disappointed his parents. I wonder what sort of escapades he went on that would disappoint High Elf parents Also, his apprenticeship and arranged marriage thrown away. For a Khajiit! Interesting indeed. I wonder how that had transpired, seeing as how High Elves think so highly of themselves and think so low of the beast-folk. I'd like to know that story I guess it's not as weird as an Altmer and Argonian though... As far as I know, I can't remember you guys publicly introducing inter-racial couple arrangements as weird as a High Elf and Khajiit! - Haya Haddadin
  • The character that proved most intriguing is Cwyniel of Grahtwood. If I could speak with her I'd ask, "What did your mother mean by when she said that your diary isn't made from your trees and how does that make you feel?" I'd tell her, "Even if the people who inhabit the land feel that they are different from each other, the land itself doesn't deserve to suffer because of it. The trees are the same, as are you to the High Elf, Dark Elf, Khajiit, Breton, Redguard, Orc, Argonian and Nord." - Jocelyn Antl
