So, shadows can effectively function as interdimensional portal guns from Rick and Morty if you know what you’re doing with shadow magic in the Elder Scrolls universe. It’s possible this crater was included as a clue to Elder Scrolls VI‘s location. Personally, I’m not going to factor in the sun’s angle to figure out which direction the camera faces nor am I going to look at the shape of the coastline in the teaser to find similarly shaped pieces of coastlines on other maps. But based on the types of vegetation and terrain we see, I think we can reasonably discount all but the continental North-West coastal provinces of High Rock and Hammerfell. Dec 10, 2012 - Bonelord concept art by Michael Kirkbride (Morrowind). It never seems to go on sale. How far into pre-production is Elder Scrolls VI? The Atlas is a computer built to simulate universes. People have altered it over time, but the core of the tower remains unchanged and apparently the tunnels under the tower need a full exploration. Michael Kirkbride is known as Merry Eyesore the Elk on the Bethesda forums, once went by the name of MK, Michael Kirkbride, and Vehk, and assumes roleplay accounts as needed. Michael Kirkbride - the developer who wrote ALL this shit. My thoughts: I do think the apparent lack of visible signs of habitation is strange, but I also don’t think we can assume nowhere in Tamriel looks like what we see in the teaser. In Skyrim’s Dragonborn DLC, a wizard named Neloth will eventually give you radiant quests to retrieve staffs (staves?) There’s the Adamantine Tower. He usually uses Morrowind character Vehk, the living god of Dunmer, when posting in the forum as well as his own initial MK. Some lore books in Skyrim say the divines built it as a meeting place for discussing the creation of the mortal plane of Mundus. If there’s one outstanding feature about a place called High Rock, you better believe it has to do with the massive, but separated mountains that look like tall boulders. But 5th Era or not, I don’t think VI will be set very far apart from Skyrim. The Pankratosword is a piece of worldbuilding Michael Kirkbride wrote into a snippet about Cyrus the Restless back in 2010, and the ambiguity is - as all "Michael Kirkbride wrote this about TES" - 100% intentional (unless he was nibbling on magic mushrooms again). Right now, I’m thinking Blades helps set up some context for the Great War that happened 30 years before Skyrim and that Elder Scrolls VI follows the ramifications of the outcome of the Stormcloak Rebellion, the assassination of Emperor Titus Mede II, and the development of the Thalmor Embassy/Aldmeri Dominion. Apparently the hammer’s impact upon landing was so great that it created a massive crater, just like the one in the teaser. Also, it would make more sense for Akavir to invade Tamriel and have the action based in Tamriel. Assuming the body of water is an ocean since we can see the horizon in the distance uninterrupted by land, we can’t immediately cross off any provinces because none of them are entirely landlocked. He is responsible for the lore you see in TES3:Morrowind, and is quite the figure (he's crazy). The entirety of the elder scrolls lore is just a SHIT TON of divisions of the god head amaranth who has created the entire elder scrolls universe as a dream and is unaware of its existence. My thoughts: Akavir is the name of a larger continent than Tamriel, and I don’t think the next game will happen or be named after an entire, gigantic continent. Elder scrolls does an absolutely fantastic job world building and being open world games, but the combat is shit. Michael Kirkbride (born September 1, 1972) is a writer and video game designer, most famous for his time with Bethesda working on The Elder Scrolls series. The copies are powerful artifacts, to be sure. Alright, so I was reading through MK's posts on the Imperial Library and I came across this quote on Ruma Camoran: "Ruma gave birth to herself, and her father was the father. Polygon recently tracked down … I'm going to defer to a man by the name of Michael Kirkbride on this one. The Elder Scrolls is a rich setting packed with some of the more evocative cosmology I’ve ever encountered. - Mark Twain Live GT - Cpt Decaf, From this day forth, I hold Kirk Ferentz 100% for the success and failures of the Iowa football program, both on and off the field. Everyone seems to have this firm idea that CHIM is true in TES. He is Michael Kirkbride, if you understand what I mean. According to this theory, the Thalmor in Skyrim were gathering information about the dragons to deliberately hide information about the one guy who knew Alduin was behind everything. Morrowind: Mushrooms. It wouldn’t surprise me if the defeat of Alduin in Skyrim causes the beginning of the 5th Era, seeing as how a dragon will no longer consume the world. It seems extremely unlikely to me that the crater is from the ruined city of Volenfell, although I admit this doesn’t disqualify the game from taking place in Hammerfell as a whole. It won’t be easy to just build a new engine. The Joker; D.I.C.E. I think a remake of Arena would be a pretty cool idea. Michael Kirkbride, also known as "MK" for short, is an edgelord well known in the community. An Elder Scrolls Anthology was released in 2013 for the PC. The Elder Scrolls series is rather a tragedy beginning with the murder of Nir at the hands of Padomay, which it drove Anu the Dreamer towards achieving the Amaranth to create a perfect world where Nir and Padomay live (after he probably murdered Padomay). Saved from 24.media.tumblr.com. As for High Rock and the crater, things could be a little more promising. "For some strange reason, an iron, pencil-shaped statue is blocking your path.". For all it’s flaws, Bethesda bailed combat in Fallout 4 survival difficultly. By Charlie Stewart 6 days ago Share Share Tweet Email My thoughts: Actually, a random invasion from Akavir if it were led by some crazy magical entity or something might be a great main plot conflict. In fact, they were created by Vivec to hunt Dreughs during a time-lost campaign against the Altmer of the sea. If set in Akavir, the playable races would have to be Akaviri like the Tsaesci (snake people/sneople), Kamal (snow demons), Tang Mo (monkey people), Ka Po’ Tun (non-Khajiit cat people) and I feel like the main series games just aren’t ready for that kind of change right now. Kirkbride wrote for both Morrowind and Oblivion, as well as for the Action-Adventure spin- … Although I would adore an Elder Scrolls game not set on Tamriel, I don’t think this is a likely setting for the next core game because of how totally unfamiliar it is to fans. This seemingly impossible feat is done by Bethesda's former writer Michael Kirkbride. I just don’t think it’s likely, but I guess we won’t know until we know. What might we expect to see in it? Maybe The Game Theorists over on YouTube can do some calculations with the non-Earth physics of a fictional sun and planet or the many inconsistencies between in-game maps, but I am certainly not going to be focusing on whether or not I think Nirn has a tilted axis like Earth that will mess with the angle of sunlight we see in the teaser to find out where in Tamriel we might be looking at.
