The Elder Scrolls Online Video Drops Some Lore

The Elder Scrolls Online

A new video for The Elder Scrolls Online has been posted, giving us some details on the lore of the land.

The video focuses on three of Tamriel’s alliances that surround the mighty Cyrodil. These alliances include the Ebonheart Pact to the east, the Aldmeri Dominion to the south, and the Daggerfall Covenant to the northwest. Each of these powers believe they should be ruling Cyrodil, because the current ruling power in the Empire is made up of weak nobles.

Abnur Tharn, patriarch of the Tharn family and father of Clivia Tharn, the Empress Regent of Tamriel, is an old battlemage who has ties with the Daedra. When he realizes the threat the alliances pose, he seeks help from the Necromancer, Lord Mannimarco, who works for the Daedric Prince, Molag Bal.

Lost yet? The video is full of esoteric terms and deep lore, but a lot of this should be familiar to fans of the The Elder Scrolls series. Even if you’ve only played The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, you should be somewhat familiar with Daedric Princes, Tamriel, The White Gold Tower, Bretons, etc.

Watch the video below and be prepared to absorb all of the juicy history behind The Elder Scrolls Online. It’s set for a 2013 release, but there are no concrete release dates as of this writing. Let us know what you think about it in the comments section!
