The Land of War and Poetry
It is the 175th year of the Fourth era and The Great War is raging between The Tamrilic Empire and The Aldmeri Dominion..
The Imperial City has fallen…..
The Aldmeri Dominion's influence is spreading through out Tamriel from its Capital in Summerset Isle, home of the Altmer (High Elves). A small group known as the Thalmor have almost single handedly quelled the Oblivion threat in Summerset and Valenwood and were appointed to highest seat of power in Summerset, The Crystal Tower.
Valenwood, home of the Bosmer (Wood Elves) have overthrown it previous government in part thanks to a recent coup and have joined the Thalmor, Officially forming The Aldmeri Dominion
Elsweyr, home of the Khajiit have also joined the Aldmeri Dominion. The Khajiit government have proclaimed the Aldmeri Dominion as the saviors of the Khajiit people after bringing an end to The Void Nights, but some hold their suspicions.
Morrowind, home of the Dunmer, are reeling from the effects of The Red Year have found themselves under occupation of their former slaves, The Argonians. The noble house of Morrowind have gone into hiding or have been exiled completely from Morrowind.
Urged by the Hist, an ancient race of sentient trees native to Black Marsh, the Argonians have laid a claim to Morrowind. The nobles houses of Morrowind put up and fight and haven't gone quietly. The Blackwood Company Generals believe the noble houses are gathering and plan an uprising.
Skyrim, home of the Nords and one of the only Imperial controlled territories left, seeks to aid the Emperor. Fighting men all over Skyrim are joining the Imperial Army and seek glory in the name of their most revered Divine, Talos. For Nords, there is no choice. The Aldmeri Dominion seeks to end the worship of Talos, and must be stopped.
Hammerfell, home of the Redguards, is one of the most critical points in their history. War against the Aldmeri Dominion has brought about an end to a 100 year old civil war in Hammerfell. The need of survival and securing Hammerfell's future outweighed petty disputes. Caught between Elves who seek to invade and conquer their homeland, and the Empire who would abandon Hammerfell to save Cyrodil. The people of Hammerfell are split between duty and homeland.
Highrock, Home of the Bretons. This north-western continent has always in been caught in conflict and the 4th era is no different. After certain events in at the end of the 3rd era in Highrock, Man and landscape was changed drastically. Out of 100 different tribes fighting for power now only three remain: Daggerfall, Wayrest and Orsinium. Daggerfall and Wayrest are comprised of mostly Bretons.
Orsinium however, is closest thing to a Orcish city than the Osmer (Orcs) have. Osmer in this region seek legitimacy in the Empire and peace with their Breton neighbors. The Bretons however keep memories of the Osmer savagery alive amongst their people.
