Elder Scrolls Online: Interactive Map Texts: Stros M’kai


Released In:

By decree of the Wise and Powerful King Fahara’jad
All merchant ships and their crews loyal to the Daggerfall Covenant are hereby placed under the mighty protection of King Fahara’jad, and any who sets upon such a ship with the intent of plunder shall be hunted and brought to swift, uncompromising justice. Any previously-issued Letter of Marque against any ship now loyal to the Covenant is hereby revoked. Instead, turn your attention to ships flying the banners of the Aldmeri Dominion or Ebonheart Pact, or manned by crews loyal to these enemies of the Covenant. Any such ship may be attacked with full force of arms and pillaged, and a great bounty is set upon these vessels, their goods, and their crew members.
Discussion with Abal at-Inzil, priest of Tava

“King Fahara’jad is a mighty and shrewd leader, and I do not question his joining with the Covenant. Many who worship here, though, have their doubts and grievances—especially about allying with the Orcs, our enemy of long years. Many rightly despise their worship of the so-called ‘Divine’ Mauloch. This god is clearly a guise for Malooc, the Horde King and hated enemy to the Redguard people.

This presents challenges for cooperation. I have advised my faithful to focus their anger into their daily training and practice, to envision the glorious future of our people, and to realize that this is a mere step on our path. I have even encouraged them to provide an example, that perhaps the Orcs might someday come to know the true Divines through our own displays of honor and strength.”

From the notes of Verbaud Derre, architect

The Redguards’ ancestors brought great architectural skill and knowledge with them across the sea when they fled their sunken homeland of Yokuda. We may never know exactly what their ancient structures there looked like, but the Redguards’ respect for tradition almost certainly ensures that they preserved as much of the Yokudan form and style as possible. Their reverence for history and their ancestors led them to produce monuments of impressive scale and the most ornate temples and tombs I have laid eyes on. Perhaps even more interesting (if more mundane) are their adaptations to desert life, considered in every structure they produce.
