Fan Fiction

Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.

The Caged Lion: Part 3 & 4 – By  Do’Rakk on TESOF

The streets of Corinthe had fallen into despair ever since Ra’Sir had named himself Lord of House Solvandi. While the manor itself and the area surrounding had prospered greatly, this area was reserved only for Ra’Sir and those that found favor in his eyes. The other citizens had been taxed into poverty in order to fuel the decadent lifestyle of the wealthy. People were regularly forced to choose between starvation, prison, or fleeing to the southern half of Corinthe.

Home is Where the Hearth IsBy Annarieu on TESO-RP

Lujaynne trudged down the path that led to Farrun, welcoming the time to be at home, and dreading it as well. She had been gone a sound six months this time around and she was looking forward to a few weeks of being with her family. Scratch that, she was looking forward to a few weeks not chasing down jobs and performing them, sometimes under grizzly circumstances. Time at home would be another battle she knew she wouldn't enjoy, but she had very little alternatives in the matter. Go home, or stay on the road.

I Have a Little Plan - Part VII & Part VIIIBy Harlwystyr on TESOF

Something was rising in him, something urgent. Before he quite knew what it was, he felt the energetic surge of absorbing the powers of the Flamesteel Blade, the metal bending as if near a source of immense heat. From the depths of his mind, as he controlled her body, he felt Jalinda awake.

"Greetings," the mind of the Old Meddler told her as if nothing had transpired, though warm regard washed out of his mind and into Jalinda's, causing a mental vortex of astonished awareness tinged with bewilderment. "I have many unfinished tasks ahead of me."

MagefireBy Thorfinn on TESOF

The Dunmer clasped his ashen grey hands together solicitously. “All I require is a small demonstration”, he reminded Thorfinn, looking at him expectantly.

“I have already told you, I do not meddle in sorcery”. He stated if flatly, harshly.

“Ahem” coughed the elf’s partner, the second gate-warden, a Breton. “I rather fear it will be impossible for you to enter, young master, quite impossible. Regrettable, but”, he held up a long finger, “Impossible.

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.

  • "This is the story: Sheogorath invited him to a tea party, and Sheogorath said, "Cheese for Everyone! Except Molag." Molag got sad and ran away. He saw me adventuring and I had a few cheeses in my pocket, so he decided to rob me and take my soul as an extra. Molag didn't want to show signs of weakness so he pretended he stole my soul for something important." – Diogo Bento
  • "I was chosen because he can see me through the computer screen, and has been watching me since Arena. Oh god...I think he took my soul, not my character's..." – Peter Larsen
  • "Molag Bal chose my character because she was born on a certain day in a certain land under a certain sign, and all of the planetary bodies in the sky were in alignment for the first time in centuries. Or she was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was the first soul he saw to capture. Either way, it seems she has some work to do!" – Marvin Raines
  • "Because I am the incarnation of a new Daedric Prince, one at the beginnings of life and discovering my power. I do not realize it yet, but while he is stunting my growth he also uses my soul to power a weapon that can destroy other Daedric Princes so he will be the only one. Tamriel is just a bonus." – Saetas Sven
  • "Because he has a death wish." – Nathan Baker
  • "Molag Bal's intentions are always brutality and torture. It's hard to judge him based on a human standpoint, because in his world these things are the norm and he only ‘steps into’ our world to cause havoc with what he deems normal. I'd say he knew my character was going to be born and guided him purposefully to the point of meeting him for reasons probably involving pain, and Molag Bal’s personal enjoyment. Sounds a lot like him anyways." – Matthew Goldstein
  • "I think he wants to create a powerful summoned creature, and Soul Gems are what he needs to feed that being. Or, what if he is planning a new type of enchantment for his Mace that is necessary to subjugate the entirety Nirn?" – Joseph Cauchi
  • "Molag Bal wanted my soul for only one reason: so that he might gain for himself the only thing more powerful than an Elder Scroll: an Elder Roll. What kind of roll you ask? A sweet one! That's right! He wants, all for himself, the knowledge and power of the Elder Rolls! However, as I am the last surviving member of the Knightly Order of the Swirl, I will not let this happen. Akatosh only knows what might happen if Molag Bal got his teeth around one!" – Avery H.

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!
