This is NOT /tesg/ minus waifus, so behave properly.
Keep the squabbling to a minimum.
No waifus/husbandos, except for Reman The Cyrodiil, most glorious emperor, born of the diamond, to ever walk upon this Starry Heart. Praise him as you tear veins from the Ayleidoon!

That looks interesting, has anyone played with it? I'm considering running a campaign in TES myself, and we would use 5e.

I recently learned about how Mehrunes Razor isn't just a knife that can kill people in one hit sometimes. It's actually a metaphysical surgery scalpel. Is there any other Daedric Artifact that has hidden purposes in the deep lore?

>>
>>54337444
I was thinking of setting my campaign during the Reclaimation of the Temple, when Morrowind is divided between the traditionalists who want to still worship the Tribunal, and the even more traditionalists who want to go back to the Daedra. IIRC there was a shadow war between those factions, and it could be fun.
>>
>>54337632
Literally, what >>54337494, fall of the Tribunal happened then too. With the loss of Vvardenfall being directly blamed on Vivec.
>>
>>54337698
The tribunal had fallen before correct? Vivec had bugged off, almalexia and Sotha Sil were dead by the Nerevarine.

Unless you mean the tribunal faith.
>>
>>54336964
https://youtu.be/l83vT2svg3g
>>
>>54337818
Yeah, that's it. I'd say the vast majority of Morrowind still had faith in Vivec as they had suffered no serious events until Red Mountain/Black Marsh Invasion. After which, the lack of Vivec's (the last remaining member of the Tribunal) ability to protect Morrowind, was seen as powerless to protect Morrowind.
>>
>>54337976
Do you have any advice about running a campaign in a region like Valenwood, or Black Marsh, which hasn't had a video game yet?
>>
>>54338032
Nope, I can't lay down any concrete background for either of those beyond head-canon and theories. There is a few bits of lore to be found, but I suspect not enough to paint a vivid picture that captures the theme.
>>
>>54338032
Get as much lore about those areas from the series as exists, then expand as necessary by drawing influence from similar locales in other fantasy series and real life.

>>54333572
I just learned a neat little detail. Caldera isn't just the name of a town, but also a naturally occurring cauldron-like depression that forms following the evacuation of a magma chamber/reservoir.

Can someone gimme a quick rundown on the Thalmor? I thought I knew a fair it about them, but I've been recently informed that I'm wrong.
>>
>>54340076
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
>>
>>54339663
The cliff racers probably ate them all.
>>
>>54340076
Basically the universe used to be made of people soup. Then the soup got turned into living creatures. The Thalmor want it to be people soup again.
>>
>>54340076
They were founded by some butthurt Bosmer for reasons, and after the death of Martin Septim they began to push for more and more presence in Altmer society and thinking much akin to the Beer Hall Pusch.

Their philosophy is essentially that of cosmic defeatism. They believe that being forced to live as mortals in Mundus is terrible, so they are attempting to break everything down in some vein attmept of achieving "eternal life" by turning the Elves back into Ada without Mundus around to keep them mortal.

In addition to wanting to destroy the Pillars, they believe that not only the existance, but also the vey notion of Humanity prevents their plans from coming to fruition, and that reality is being held together by human belief in human divinity, hence why they have that hateboner for Talos (in addition the hatred for Tiber nuking their island way back when)

Basically, they're the TES equivilent to SEELE from Evangelion.

Get in the fucking Mantella Ysmir

>>54340146
>>54340665
>>54340704
Okay never mind, turns out I knew just enough. I was confused, because this one anon was all like "the Thalmor don't really want to destroy the Tower; you're just a sheeple if you think that," but failed to explain his reasoning further.
>>
>>54340754
He was probably roleplaying as a Thalmor shill.

>They were founded by some butthurt Bosmer

>>54340784
It sounds like a misreading of PGE1.

Are coins in the Empire still "septims", or did the thalmor demand the Empire mint new coins too?
>>
>>54341026
Colloquialisms hardly die, so probably still septims
>>
>>54341068
Okay, sure, but do they still have Talos' head on them?
>>
A dragonbreak happens
in one version of reality, I pick up a coin with my right hand, and close my hand
in annother version of reality, I pick up a coin with my left and, and close my hand

I open both my hands. Is the coin in the left hand, the right hand, or do I miraculously have two coins (one in each hand)?
>>
>>54341093
No. If memory serves correctly in skyrim they had the Eight symbol minted on them

You might as well open both your hands and find no coins at all, since in each possible reality you also left one hand empty.

That would be the Marukhati Selective
>>54340784
No, it's just wrong.
What he means to say is "the Thalmor was the Altmeri provisional government set up in Valenwood when it came under the subject of the Aldmeri Dominion.' Though this statement is probably itself wrong, given YR's response being, quote: "I don't know where to begin pointing out the lies."
>>
>>54341106
Yes.
>>
>>54341161
You're right, it was the 2nd Dominion of the Thalmor, not the 1st Dominion
>>
>>54341106
The Dragonbreak doesn't end until the causal implications of your hands having the coins have played out. So in effect, no hand has the coin, you spent it on a corndog.
>>
>>54341191
Who makes Tamriel's best corndogs?
>>
>>54341179
Nah, The Marukhati Selective would be more like

>>54341161
>During the second Aldmeri Dominion, formed in 2E 830, the Altmer reconstituted the Thalmor as the new governing body of Valenwood. They claimed they had the authority to create this government on behalf of a claimant to Valenwood's throne, Camoran Anaxemes, whose ancestors had signed an ancient treaty with the Summerset Isles.[2] As Valenwood previously possessed no true, unifying government, the Thalmor purported to maintain order in the region to uplift their Bosmer brethren. In reality, the formation of the Thalmor was far from an altruistic gesture: the Altmer desired to control Valenwood because the region, along with southern Hammerfell, harbored various pirate groups which had long threatened the Summerset Isles. Fed up with the constant pirate attacks, the Altmer hoped to secure the shores of Summerset for good by denying the pirates any safe haven from which to attack them. The Thalmor was dissolved a short time later when Tiber Septim brought Valenwood into his Empire using the overwhelming power of the Numidium.[3]

Here's why you're wrong:

- Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition: Aldmeri Dominion

Key words:
>"High Elves quickly established a provisional government, the Thalmor, on behalf of their own claimant"
>"High Elves ... established"
>"on behalf of"

Learn2lore scrub. You've got to read the actual sources.
>>
>>54341287
One could say Dragonbreaks work in about the same fashion as King Crimson.
>>
>>54341287
Dragonbreaks are a plot device. They work however the author wants, and there will never be consistency. The dragonbreak after daggerfall had multiple timelines occurring simultaneously.
>>
>>54341312
Essentially, dragonbreaks were invented because the main plot of Daggerfall had multiple endings and Bethesda didn't want to decide which one actually happened so they said all of them did even though the events are often contradictory in each. That's also why going forward they've just been very vague in referencing actions of player characters from previous games.

ftfy. CHIM is only being a lucid dream, while Lorkhan wanted Amaranth, a means to usurp and become the Dreamer
>>

I'm not so sure about that. Amaranth is technically higher on the cosmic totem pole, but it's also a pretty shitty state of being. And IIRC, some kirkbride writings suggested the chim thing.
>>
>>54341669
yeah, but many mer faiths see LORKHAN as nothing more than a trickster and enslaver.
>>
>>54341841
Trickster sure. What he did was pretty immoral by most standards of morality, even those adopted by the round eared morons.

The Mer differ on how they react to it. Most, IIRC, just want to move on and continue living their lives.
>>
>>54341841
This is why the Khajiit version is the best. They don't have a hateboner for the material world, but they still admit that Lorkhaj tricked the other spirits. They're also much more neutral when it comes to Aedra vs. Daedra. And they shit on the Bosmer, which always makes for a good time.
>>
>>54341965
Khajiit also intake skooma like an altmer intakes cock, so there's no trusting them and their neutrality, which just might be a skooma induced lethargy

If you have a coin at all, it'll probably be in your coin purse already, and you can vividly remember grabbing it with either hand but you're not actually sure which one it was.

Use the Warp of the West as an example. All parties simultaneously gained control of Numidium at once in different timelines, and when the matter was settled, all the timelines merged from Jills restoring and merging.

If the coin's position in your hand determined if you chose your Breton waifu or your Bosmeri waifu, you would experience getting your Breton waifu, but in retrospect when the Jills merge the timelines you would probably remember both.

Well I mean if you are going to use unintentional innuendo written by some UESP editor as a source you mine as well claim something more drastic.
Maybe, Nerevar's special relationship with Azura involved him ramming his cock up Alandro Sul's ass, and that's the reason he got so asshurt when the Tribunal killed Nerevar.
>>
What was the House Dagoth like before the Red Mountain? Various sources describe them as "secular House" along with Dwemer (western sources often treat Dwemer as another tribe of Chimer for some reason). It seems to be their characteristic back then, just as Hlaalu are merchants/assassins/assholes, Dres are slavers, Telvanni are libertarian wizards etc. What could be Voryn's motivation to block Nerevar from using the Tools while still feeling righteous about it, if not religion?
>>
>>54341423
Why is it a fish and not a snake in that comic?

We've seen that time travel is a thing in TES
So could there theoretically be multiple timelines? And if so, then surely the Gods/Princes exist in these alternate realities, so really, what would stop one of them who failed to conquer Tamriel in the main timeline from just doing it in another?

Or how about this. Because of a totally unrelated Dragon Break, could a villain from one timeline be reincarnated in another?

So is it true that the fate of Morrowind and Vvardenfell after the Oblivion Crisis was a giant middle finger from Bethesda to the hardcore Morrowind fanbase?

Yes.

Honestly I think it's fucking hilarious if true, because I remember how basically every complaint about Oblivion that was lodged by Morrowind fans was basically mirrored in the complaints Daggerfall players threw at Morrowind when IT released.

From what we know, it consists of "Un-Stars". In Redguard, it wasn't even a constellation, but rather some weird light refraction anomaly.

> 'I am born of golden wisdom and powers that should have forever been unalike! With this nature I am invited into the Hidden Heaven!'
>By which he meant the Scaled Blanket, made of not-stars, whose number is thirteen. Lie Rock became full of foolishness, haggling with the Void Ghost who hides in the religions of all men. The Void Ghost said:

>and there are guys who hunt them because they're super evil and don't understand your honroable werewolf ways so your missions are to slaughter them all

I'll admit I've never found the Fighters Guild that interesting, but I'll take the bog standard Morrowind and Oblivion over 'secret werewolf cult muh nord honor.' It only really works if you like werewolves, and enjoy really getting into Nord and Skyrim stuff instead of going 'but muh character is an Argonian from Black Marsh they don't care about this.'

I'll say that Oblivion Fighter's Guild is the best because in confronting the rival guild you end up doing some awful shit and a little skulduggery.
>>
>>54361747
Eh, that's a more fair point than the others; I was a fan of Skyrim's not!Scandinavian shit from the outset, pretty much. So the Companions questline hooked me a lot better than anything storywise from the previous Fighters' Guilds did.

It's kind of a risk - if you make the world really interesting, you can risk adding something that feels specific to that world because your players want to be in it. But if they aren't drawn in, it doesn't work. That's probably why safely bland works in so many cases. Sometimes I really wish I could like what Skyrim does, but I can't unring that bell now that I've gotten jaded and annoyed.

Some do, some don't, and those that do sometimes don't, and those that don't sometimes do.

Malacath seems like the only one to me who would genuinely care. The rest see their regular followers as pawns. They might get upset, but mostly at the loss of a useful tool, not at the loss of a person.

Maybe Azura, depending on how you see her.

I don't feel like it's a huge problem because 90% of the content in the game is good for mercenary characters anyway. It's not like if the Fighter's Guild is removed you're going to run out of quests about killing things for money. The whole faction is built around doing the same things you do anyway, and it doesn't really have any flavour or purpose outside of that, so what's the point? I know the Werewolves Guild isn't for everyone but at least it offers something a little different for people who want it. I didn't find the Companions very interesting but I didn't miss the Fighter's Guild either.

My favourite take on the "warrior faction" was the Imperial Legion in Morrowind where you got to actually join the guard faction and play as a police officer type of character.

I actually wonder how CDPR tackled that problem. They made a massive map, that's also much more detailed than Skyrims while probably having similar devtime (the "Thank You" sheet in the package of my W3 copy states three years with 200 devs).
Fucking Slav magic
>>
>>54369140
Because it's three times as many devs. Also the world of Witcher 3 is actually less detailed in some ways. I noticed far more asset repetition, and they also didn't have 200 or so caves and dungeons they had to fill out, it was almost all overland (and the interiors which much more mass produced and pasted). Witcher 3 had some good stuff but it was a ubisoft-tier open world.

It's actually kind of interesting to note that Morrowind is the only main TES game without fast travel.
>>
>>54369802
Fun fact, Daggerfall has a 1:12 timescale (just timed it myself).
While taking this in complete earnest would indicate the area is absurdly massive, the obvious implication is that the world is intended to be even bigger than it is made to appear in game, which is likewise attested within the game's given fast travel durations.
>>54370233
>>54370492
There's also the fact that Morrowind takes place on a large conical chunk of land, with rugged terrain to restrict the players travels. It's highest point is at the center of the map and has to be avoided for most of the game, whereas Oblivion is a big flat basin that allows you to look over the entire world from any point past the treeline.

This. In morrowind and skyrim these distinctive enviroments give the impression that while you travel, you leave "a place" and goes to "another place". In oblivion, even if you chose to not use fast travel, you never seem to leave "the same place"
>>
>>54370576
Technically Daggerfall's 'fast travel' is at least different - it takes a certain amount of time to get from place to place, especially if you have a horse or cart or ship, and how fast you chose to move or if you stop at inns or make camp. That's a bit different from the fast travel of Oblivion or Skyrim, which is 'you get there in roughly the same amount of time it would get you to run there directly from where you are now.'

That's an interesting bit of lore, but I don't fully understand - why did Lhotun feel like he had to avenge the death of an older brother that everyone had forgotten about, and if he was still alive would have likely taken the throne?

And the two stories use different names - the one in the picture uses 'Maasten,' the one in the link uses 'Arthago.' And one uses 'Abuk-i' and 'Abuki' respectively, though that might just be a typo.

It's a bit easier on a new game, as the vampire doom squads are low enough level that the guards can mostly sort them out at first. You do still have to be somewhat quick about it, though, unless you mod.

Because Lhotun is a good guy, and his eldest brother's disappearance bothered him greatly. Even before you help him in Daggerfall, he more or less realised that something shady and wrong has happened.
People haven't truly forgotten, in fact part of the quest about the missing prince involves asking around for information, but even if it had that wouldn't make it any less wrong.

I truly don't think Lhotun cares that Arthago would have been king instead, or that the crime is going to be forgotten, just that it happened in the first place. And remember that Lhotun probably didn't expect to ever be king in the first place, being the youngest child of King Camaron.

The names are in all likelihood an oversight.
Whenever you do the quest, Daggerfall just generates a random Redguard name for the prince. So he's Maasten in my save, but the name that's been used after Daggerfall is Arthago.

Aubki just just a typo of Aubk-i. There's an embarrassing amount of misspellings in TES books in general.
>>
>>54373901
The Night Falls on Sentinel book was in Morrowind through Skyrim, so maybe the name was canonizing what the name was - it seems weird to use a random name in the first place, really. I get a lot of Daggerfall quests are like that, but wouldn't it be easier to have one set name for this specific character from the getgo? The Aubki change might be the same way, though I'd have to see if she's mentioned in other lore books.

Lhotun does sound like a swell dude though, I'm glad he ended up in charge.

It's an interesting system; the whole dual-axis results thing (success/failure, advantage/threat) makes for a lot of neat possibilities.
>>
>>54374706
The FFGRPG system is pretty good if you are open to more than dice rolls being a success or fail. Kinda simple once you get the hang of it. Genesys is out around the end of the year. Try one of the Star wars Starter boxes if you what to give it a shot for now.

I might do, I'd be down for some Star Wars stuff.

But I'm about to join a NWoD campaign, which I've also never played before, so I guess that's going to take priority.

Hope it goes well. nWoD/CofD can be good times with a good group.

What races are the most populous in Tamriel? I expect Imperials for example, living in a very fertile land, to be more numerous than Nords or Redguards who like is inhospitable tundra and desert.
>>
>>54374952
I'm hoping for the best.

GM is a huge nWoD fanboy, which I hope is a good sign.
Group is a varied lot, so I don't know how it's going to pan out.

At the very least I know I can do both serious and full goof, so either way I'd be able to adapt. It's probably going to be some kind of fun, no matter what happens.

I guess this is getting off topic.

>>54375045
It's never really been defined, though it seems reasonable that Cyrodiil is very highly populated.

But remember that although areas like High Rock and Elsweyr are known for being "desert provinces", they have a varied landscape with more fertile regions. For example, although the Alik'r occupies most of the inland, there's fertile areas around the coast. The land close to the Bjoulsae River is also not desert. I believe Daggerfall categories parts of Hammerfell as "Jungle" or "Subtropical". PGE1 also mentions Redguard agriculture being very well suited to their environment, and mentions stuff like dew sails.
That doesn't mean the land is fertile or welcoming, but they're doing pretty well all things considering.

Also the Redguards have a strong naval culture, so fishing likely also supports a lot of people.

I'm not so sure about that, but then again I consider Oblivion's Cyrodiil a discardable lore violation.
>>

Cyrodiil by a wide margin
Next would probably be Elsweyr

I get that Khajit are cats probably fuck like cats but isn't Elsweyr mostly desert which isn't good for a large population.

Descriptions of Senchal suggest it is very densely populated in certain places, almost overly so.
If you want to acknowledge the PGE2 description, Elsweyr is home to nearly 200 million Khajiit which frankly seems too large.

>>54375610
There's plenty of fertile land in Pellitine.

Why does the bosmer girl have horns? I've never seen a bosmer with horns in a Bethesda game.
>>
>>54377218
To be fair, you've got "Daedroth" as both the singular form of "Daedra" and as a name for a specific type of Lesser Daedra right there in the lore.
>>
>>54377274
It's a thing in concept art that Bosmer sometimes have horns or other weird features, but much like the different Khajiit forms they don't bother to actually put it in the games.
>>
>>54377274
You haven't played Morrowind then.
>>
>>54377333
I know, that was my point. A clannfear is as much a "deadra" as a dremora.
>>
>>54377465
I mean more that it's not the first time you see that specific weirdness in the lore.

...Where the hell DOES that image come from, actually? First time I've seen it.

>>54348291
My impression of Azura is that she is the conman who believes his own con, and never notices the contradictions between the con and reality as he labors to keep fooling people. The longer the conman can keep this up, the more he feels vindicated and the bigger his ego gets. When he experiences setbacks or people see through him, he lashes out at others.

On the other hand, she may actually be able to see the future and manipulate it to some degree, and her mercurial temperament is simply a side effect of taking on such a strongly feminine persona.
>>
>>54377752
From what I understand Meridia is also like this. Fully believes all of her actions are perfect and benevolent and wonderful and gets confused and furious when disobeyed or called out on her less savory actions.
>>
>>54377779
Meridias actions are totally benevolent and wonderful though.
>>
>>54377874
You're just saying that because she gave you a sword.

I've never heard of her doing anything crueler than destroying an Aylied city. Almost all her quests include fighting necromancers.
>>
>>54379917
Explain.
>>
>>54380497
Meridia's sword had pretty average stats and enchantments. At least in Skyrim it did. A player who levels up smithing and enchanting skills can create an item better suited to killing vampires and draugr. In fact, most Daedric artifacts are kind of lackluster because the devs wanted casual players to enjoy the Daedric quests but knew most wouldn't stick around long enough to get to high levels. So you have artifacts that are really talked up in the lore but end up being inferior to generic high level gear with player-created enchantments.
>>
>>54379885
Kind of strange that she bothered helping themt, seeing as the Ayleid witch-kings fought a lot of their battles using the undead.
>>
>>54380599
That's kinda always been the case in Elder Scrolls, though. Since Morrowind, anyway. Shit the player can make is always absurdly OP.

>>54380462
She's the patron of Umaril the Unfeathered, though I guess if you're a patriotic Mer that isn't very heinous.

I don't have my pdfs on hand, but I believe this kind of is the case with Arena as well, at least in part.
IIRC, the melee weapon artefacts don't benefit from material bonuses, so they're worse than say ebony weapons. They have powerful enchantments though, so it might balance out.

That's less of an issue in Daggerfall, where I think it's more balanced out.
>>
>>54379885
Well considering that all the Ayleids were eventually slaughtered by Alessian pograms, you can't really say that Meridia is evil for giving the Elves a boon.

Spellcasting isn't adversely affected by wearing armor in The Elder Scrolls, right? Why aren't there more mages like Divayth who use heavy armor? Why are robes still the go to wizard fashion?

In general there doesn't seem to be any reason why armour would interfere with magic.

>Why aren't there more mages like Divayth who use heavy armor?
This is explicitly what an (Imperial) Battlemage is, to mention just one thing.

>Why are robes still the go to wizard fashion?
Unless you're certain you're going to fight, end up in melee range, and you're not confident in your ability to shield yourself magically, it's just much more convenient to walk around in comfy robes.
Why strap heavy metal to your body unless you're trained to use just that?
>>
>>54385335
>Why are robes still the go to wizard fashion
Have you ever wore an armor? Any armor, for that matter. Shit's real fucking heavy yo. It's uncomfortable. Do you think people just walked around in plate armors just because they were knights? Do you think soldiers hang around in the barracks or wherever they are stationed, always in combat gear? Of course not, only when there is an explicit reason to wear armor, you do.

For a mage to wear armor (considering shield is an easy and available spell), xe has to have a real good reason. Divayth's reason is to show off, and he probably has thousands of permanent quality of life improvement spells going on at the same time.
