Update Roundup: April

We do a lot of work here at the Library, but don't talk about it much. Let's fix that, shall we?

Over 60 new books from Elder Scrolls Online were added to the library this month. With the Morrowind chapter out in June, we're making an effort to get the caught up in preparation. Here are a few notable titles from the latest batch: 

The storyline for The Elder Scrolls Legends first DLC, Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, is almost complete. One big thing we're missing is the dialog for the alternate paths. If you've got videos or screenshots of what happens if you pick the choices we don't have documented, please let Lady N know. 

 

New Homestead Interview

Have you ever wanted to own a nice house in High Rock, or been curious about merish living arrangements? Learn more about the housing situation in 2nd Era Tamriel in IceFireWarden's interview of Housing Broker Canthion, played by Zenimax Online's Lawrence Schick. The Homestead update for Elder Scrolls Online is now live on all platforms, so after you're done reading you can get straight to decorating!

 

New Scripts

Thanks to the efforts of Tailin Sero and The Lusty Dovahkiin, this library is now home to five new pages about Mundrial writing systems: Elder Script (found on the Elder Scrolls themselves), Divine (found on the Eye of Magnus and Black Books of TESV: Skyrim), Dragon (found throughout the province of Skyrim), Mage Script (of Shalidor's Insights in TESV), and Ancient Nordic Runes (found on standing stones in Elder Scrolls Online). Each page includes a diagram of symbols, explanation of the system, and examples of its use.

All of these pages, along with the Daedric and Aldmeri alphabets, can be found in the Language & Arts section of the sidebar.

Festive Greetings!

A happy New Life, one and all! We've added two new interviews about the Festival for this occasion. The first was conducted by Benefactor on behalf of Tamriel Foundry, and the second by IceFireWarden. 

Stories, in Game and Not

Two new things in the Library recently.

One, the complete story of Elder Scrolls: Legends, the new card game by Direwolf Digital. 

Two, a new section called Cut Content, meant to house things that made it into the game's data files, but didn't make it into the actual playable game. Currently it contains unused arcane imagery from Skyrim's Shalidor's Insights book, as well as a wealth of information on southern Alinor and its politics from an early draft of Elder Scrolls Online. You can find this section under Special Collections in the main menu.

New Interview: Hist, Shadowscales, and More

We've got a brand new in-character interview up with two of the writers from Zenimax Online. Leamon Tuttle, playing Heem-Jas and Hides-the-Ashes, indulges my questions about the Hist and Shadowscales respectively, while Lawrence Schick resumes the role of Vicecanon Heita-Meen to provide some answers about Black Marsh politics. There's lots of juicy new info in there, so be sure to give it a read. Big thanks out to the guys, as well as Benefactor and Jessica Folsom for facilitating the interview! 

Check it out right here. 

(As an aside, I know we've been quiet on the news lately, but there's always something going on behind the scenes) 

Items of the Second Era Added to the Library

Most of the updates we do around here are small. Add some books here, update a page there. But this one is a big one. 

We've added a whole new section, called Items of the Second Era, into the People & Societies tab. It's a breakdown of over 2,200 items and their descriptions from ESO. They are sorted into provinces and provide a fascinating look into the daily lives of your average Tamrielic citizens, including their fashion, hygiene habits, and bedroom proclivities. 

Check it out right here!

The Library has moved

The Library has moved to different servers. Let use know if anything is broken!

Redguard and Battlespire, Now on Good Old Games

You read that right! These two great and previously unplayable games are now available from Good Old Games. They're preconfigured to run on modern machines, taking all the headache out of dealing with dos and config files. 

You can nab them, as well as the GOTY version of Morrowind, in a reduced price introductory pack right here, or individually on their respective pages. 

Kyne's Challenge

Check out Kyne's Challenge: A Hunter's Companion, the third and final book from the Hero's Guide to Tamriel. Written by Grundvik Cold-Fist, it is the story of a band of adventurers out to hunt and document Tamriel's many beasts.  Like the rest of the Guide, it is located in the Novels section of the sidebar.
