In video games, there isn’t a fantasy world that matches the scale and scope of the Elder Scrolls. It’s backdrop for Bethesda’s RPG series that began with Arena in 1994, hit critical mass with Skyrim in 2011, and yet continues to grow with The Elder Scrolls Online – not to mention The Elder Scrolls 6, which just may be the most anticipated new game of the decade.
The Elder Scrolls is a fully-realised universe, where everyone – from monumental characters and gods who change the course of history to the simplest tavern owner – has a story. These stories are at the heart of the series, and soon, you’ll hear two stories from The Elder Scrolls Online in a completely new – not to mention pretty brutal – light.
May Disaster Turn Away and Hail to the Ancient Spirits are two songs that will be familiar to most Elder Scrolls Online players. In the game, they’re sung in plenty through the taverns that dot the world of Tamriel by bards dedicated to the art of oral storytelling.
