Made a big contradiction by questioning the three factions. there is an entire lore video explaining them. basically they joined forces to fight because of desperation over the oblivion crisis. YOU (or at least someone else in the shoddycast crew) explained this and now you’re saying it doesn’t make sense? that’s what truly doesn’t makes sense.
In the time line, the oblivion crisis is not after the Events of elder scrolls online? Why the desperation of the oblivion crisis could influence any faction if it did’nt hapened iet?
So, I’d like to address this because it’s been bugging me and TESO gets a lot of flack for not following lore. In example, the alliances being originally sworn enemies and would never join forces, in all the TESO videos they call them “unlikely alliances”. In this case I think that there’s some missing pieces. Consider that Talos existed 100s of years ago and how many things get attributed to him over the course of centuries of deification. Now, there is a book in TESO in the mages guild in mournhold where a scholar is explaining where he thinks the jungles of tamriel have gone. Now, the white gold tower, built by the aldmer was intended to mimic the crystal and adamantine towers, one of which was built by the aedra, where lorkhan was slain, so it is said. The ayleids wanted to replicate the type of magical influence of these towers and the theory described in the book states that when the elves built the white gold tower it imprinted the elves geographic preference to the land, so cyrodiil became like the summer set isles, a jungle. When the humans (specifically the races descended from atmora, the nedes, etc.) took over cyrodiil, during the time of Alessia, the white gold tower started to change the land to fit their needs, and these humans come from much colder regions. Thusly, over time, the land changed to a more temperate climate, with fields and forests, to fit the new rulers of the white gold tower. In the book it explains that this just a theory and inconclusive without evidence. Yet it would explain why cyrodiil has changed from a jungle before the time of Tiber Septim.
TES should stay as RPG, ever since Morrowind true fans were hit in the balls in the name of “new players”.Fuck that! I want a game in which main race is a beast, I dont care if new players will accept it.If they dont they have Skyrim and then they wont be new players, fuck that new player logic! Are they making a game for people taht they dont know if they will even play it, even after all thing they do to suck up to them?
Perhaps the entire Elder Scrolls storyline symbolizes or describes our own timeline as humanity. Where at a certain point in our timeline as humans there is a question that arouses where man really comes from. Where this Jesus figure named Talos didn’t actually come when we anticipated and some miracle has caused a parallel universe (ESO) to surmise causing a lot of tension, and we don’t figure out the truth in enough time. Then, before we’re able to figure this out eras go by and the antichrist or devil (Alduin) comes to bring about end times and a man/reincarnation of Talos brings about our salvation once again. Thus, the cycle begins again after eras of arguments and skepticism and doubt for what the truth is. For example, The Aldmeri Dominion in Skyrim denying Talos as a divine figure. Government & Science disproving the belief in God/Jesus. DISCLAIMER: (This is just a thought and a way of connecting our life with a fantasy game I am obsessed with. In no way am I denying anyone else’s theory. This is open to interpretation, and it makes sense to me. Please comment and join the discussion.)
