    Only have an EU character levelled, so that's a no go.

    Every time I see the Indrik Mount from the seasonal events, I keep thinking Chocobo.

    It should be available directly through Steam as well, if you don't mind the extra layer of DRM.

    The official download links should be up around 1500 GMT.

    Steam usually updates its pages around 1800 GMT.

    Great. Hope you got the extra stuff to buy a pet or mount.

    It's an extremely large world, and can be very daunting at first. So, having company in the form of a pet or mount can make a big difference for new players.

    Whoops?

    Which links to this:

    EDIT: Oh wait this is P&P Elseweyr not ESO Elseweyr.

    Whoops #2

    Well what's done is done and it's a bit of a tie-in but otherwise unrelated to ESO.

    It can be pretty entertaining what gets thrown around between some of these companies and their fans.

    In fact, until very recently, the head designer of D&D was in fact the lead lore master for ESO.

    Interesting. :)
    I know the series started with Elder Scrolls Arena (I could never get through it but then even the tutorial sewer could be death.) but it was with Daggerfall that much of the lore actually came together and was made into a bigger piece and Tamriel as a whole got fleshed out as guilds were no longer just mere references and you had the politics and factions vying for control over the artifact and then Morrowind took it even further plus of course the side games of Redguard and Battlespire though sales wasn't the best for these entries.

    Though for Morrowind I guess it's minor but I just see Dagoth Ur as some used car salesman with his super hammy delivery and taunting though overlooking that the Sixth House and Ash Creatures are almost alien and nightmare fuel material. Definitively would be interesting to have a modern remake of it making full use of that.
    (If they ever do something like that. Battlespire and the fleshing out of the Daedra was also fun if a bit of a different experience entirely.)

    Mikael Kirkbridge I think was one of the writers and there's some stories around that and even a few photos plus the developer role playing sessions around the time of Morrowind.
    (CHIM and all that stuff which isn't quite in-universe ha ha.)

    From doing a little session as Ra'vid the Khajiit in the library of Vivec to the Trial of Vivec with Azuara and much much more. :D
    https://www.imperial-library.info/content/trial-vivec

    Though also to be fair with how early D&D was and how influential it was (Even also in Japan and elsewhere influencing games like Final Fantasy.) of course it would be a very large source of inspiration and people adapting or even copying parts of it though the above is only very loosely reworded so someone might be a bit of trouble because the copyright and legals surrounding these things are also very different from the earlier days.

    Pretty sure TES Arena even borrows a bit but more loosely like the negative armor class and to hit system and rolls for hits and misses and other mechanics not immediately visible to players though many other titles did that too.


    For Elder Scrolls Online itself I liked the game back when I was actively playing it though I took a long break since it was really eating up most of the free time and there wasn't much more content until first Summerset and now also Elseweyr though with the very complicated lore and nature of that and the Khajiit and all I wonder how ESO is going to be tackling it. :)
    (Much of it was written early on after all, things got changed up a bit between games and sometimes given a in-game explanation as to why things were a bit different.)

    For the main games it also felt like it's one of the provinces the developers would be putting off for some later installment and now it might even be going back to High Rock from Daggerfall instead of Summerset or Black Marsh.
    (And Akavir which is another one of those areas hit hard by lore and being really difficult to turn into a actual video game area even if fans would really like to see it realized at some point.)


    Well I'm just another fan of the series from the beginnings and to the more exotic locale of Morrowind and Oblivion even with it's faults and then Skyrim though I hope Elder Scrolls VI can also bring back mechanics instead of streamlining them though it might have a bit of both. Going to be a few more years I expect before it will be revealed in full.

    That's a great game. I enjoy it in my Xbox one x 4k hdr, instabought eso plus service and elsweyr collector's edition at once. Amazing game. Much superior and pleasant than new age's plagues. I can't wait for tes 6. What rdr2, what greedfall, what other rpgs. All fakes!
