A Look at The Alliances of The Elder Scrolls Online (VID)

A new developer video for The Elder Scrolls Online has been released, offering us a glimpse into the the story behind the game’s three alliances.

“Loremaster” Lawrence Schick explains why the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, and Ebonheart Pact are at war, three young alliances along the periphery of the continent, vying for control of Cyrodiil at the continent’s center for different reasons.

Check out the video:

In case you didn’t catch those names, those leaders are:

  • High King Emeric, a Breton, leader of The Daggerfall Covenant.
  • Almalexia, one of the living gods of the Tribunal, and one of the leaders of the Ebonheard Pact.
  • Queen Ayrenn of the High Elves, leader of the Aldmeri Dominion.

This sounds unbelievably stupid. They should have made the next elder scrolls game following the Dragonborn’s rise to the Imperial Throne, coming full circle from the original Emperor, instead of this lore destroying monstrosity.
