Journey to Tamriel through the eyes of other ESO fans.
Casting Shadows: Chapter Two – By BlytheAlarynn on TESOF
The sun was set low in the sky. It was cradled by two sizable hills and blanketed by a sky of woven gold. It dimly illuminated the field below. The area was wide open and seemed to stretch out for miles upon miles. Bees buzzed lazily around wild flowers that grew in luxuriant clusters wherever they pleased. Two nearby butterflies fluttered in circles around each other, vibrant flashes of color glimmering off their wings. A welcomed breeze flew past, teasing the tall grass that tickled the skin of the three bodies that sat in the center of it all, soaking up the scenery.
The Deserter: Chapter 2 – By Davek on TESO-RP
Dazog sniffed the air carefully. He was right, the smell of wet moss hung faintly in the air, which meant he was heading in the right direction. He wasn’t looking forward to confronting a mage, particularly an Argonian one. He was hoping this “dangerous stranger” was just some novice alchemist practicing his tradecraft in solitude in the hills. Dazog remembered hearing somewhere that magic-users like their privacy in order to study. He assured himself it was just some harmless student.
Scorched – By Triskele on TESOF
She narrowed her eyes against the unforgiving light of the scorching sun, the linen over her mouth to protect her lungs from the sandy winds not able to make her forget about her cracked, swollen lips, deprived of water. One foot, she thought. One foot, then the other. And continue like that. Behind her lay the lonesome trail of her boots, footsteps in the red dunes, leading all the way back to a small crevasse, above which vultures circled. Her horse had not made it.
Theodyne Robillard and The Daggerfall Covenant: Part 2 – By Theodyne Robillard on TESOF
It had been months since the night that Theodyne had met Alator Virane and joined the ranks of The Council of Arcanea. But even still he could sometimes feel the creature's blade in his shoulder as if it were still there. Sometimes he would even place his hand on the scar to make sure the wound was still closed even though it had long since healed thanks to the magic of Alator.

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.
- “Ashe Rune (30 second stun), Incinerate (DPS), and Bane of the Undead (30 second fear). I would stun then before they get to me. Incinerate, and if they manage to live through that, fear them. I would use the tight corridors of the catacombs to my favor.” – Ryan Nesbitt
- “Charm—to convince the Orc from the Fighters Guild to do the job for me. Did it with only one spell! Am I Archmage yet?” – Nathan Hoffman
- “A wise Breton mage taught me to never start a fight without these three spells at the ready: Conjure Bound Greaves for the safety of my knees, Conjure Enhanced Pastry Pouch Seal because a stolen sweetroll is no silly matter, and Conjure Dremora Lord because they are over powered.” – William Thai
- “THREE SPELLS—you are seriously going to give a new player that many spells for their first quest? What luxury! Usually a new mage gets ONE spell, sometimes two, but THREE?” – Hawk Wind
- “I would bring a turn undead spell. It’s a catacomb, after all—there are going to be undead. A fire spell (an undead’s weakness), and maybe a summon creature spell to guard me. To me, a good mage should always be ready for any situation and quickly adapt.” – James Cain
- “My first character will be a spellsword joining the guild. Dual-wielded swords combined with lightning-based spells will be my choice. Some of the crowd control abilities will take a second seat, and lastly a healing spell, to get myself out of trouble when working alone.” – Anathros Luciendar
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!
