ESO Book Highlights: Redguards & Hammerfell

Although the Redguards had featured in two earlier games - Daggerfall and the eponymous Redguard - ESO managed to walk the line between reinforcing previously established lore and introduce some of their own. Here are a few of my favorites from our growing collection:

A Betrayal of Our Heritage - Highlighting the strength of the division between Crown and Forbear
The Book of Circles - this famous series, mentioned back in Daggerfall, is a series of battle maxims.
The Lost Islands of Old Yokuda - A poem reflecting on the islands of Yokuda.
Correct Ways of Slaying Ra-Netu - How to lay the undead to rest in a proper manner.
Sentinel, Jewel of the Alik'r - a history of the city. This overwrought, flowery style seems to be the hallmark of this writer (and several Anonymous ones)
Reverence for the Dead - a bit about Redguard funerary culture

This week, I'd like to give a very special thanks to Pilaf the Defiler, our newest Assistant. He's done a great job adding many, many books to the database, and deserves a big round of applause.

For those of you who are more art minded, The Guardian has posted an excellent collection of never-before-seen concept art.

Thanks for the shout out. It's an honor and a pleasure to help with this great website, and I must say I'm really enjoying this series of ESO lore snippets you've been presenting us with.
