OverviewEditThe Elder Scrolls (abbrievated TES) is a set of games all based in the mythical land of Tamriel. The games currently take place over 300 years or so, up to the year 4E:201 as seen in TES: Skyrim. The theme is Adventure/Fantasy. The folklore is very detailed and intricate. Bethesda has been highly praised on the games respective depth of lore.
The land of Tamriel is split into nine provinces: Skyrim, High Rock, Hammerfell, Summerset Isles, Valenwood, Elsweyr, Black Marsh, Morrowind and the centre of the Imperial power, Cyrodiil.
For the majority of the games the Empire of the Septim's (the main royal dynasty featured in the game) controls these provinces. However following the events of Oblivion (the fourth game) due to the sacrifice of Martin Septim the Empire has declined, having no legitimate rulers in the Imperial City the Thalmor, an alliance of Elves bent on world dominance, has split most of the Empire. The growing tensions between the two factions is one of the key themes in Skyrim.
