Description Edit | History
The Elder Scrolls is a fantasy franchise whose core series is comprised of sandbox, role-playing games. They were built on the principles of "being who you want and doing what you want" that have persisted throughout the series history. The franchise consist of the main series that spans five games and a spin-off series called The Elder Scrolls Travels. Two books by author Gregory Keyes were released in 2009 entitled "The Infernal City" and "Lord of Souls", set approximately 40 years after the Oblivion crisis.

The Elder Scrolls takes place on the planet Nirn, on the continent of Tamriel which is divided into several provinces. Little has been mentioned of what other continents lay beyond Tamriel. Nirn has two moons (Masser and Secunda) and numerous races both living and extinct with deep histories and unique cultures. Ten playable races: Imperial, Nord, Redguard, Breton, Altmer, Bosmer, Dunmer, Orc, Argonian, and Khajiit exist on Tamriel. Many illnesses and diseases afflict the inhabitants of Nirn and this includes several variations of vampirism and lycanthropy.

The races of Tamriel recognize nine gods: Akatosh, Arkay, Kynareth, Talos, Stendarr, Dibella, Mara, Julianos, and Zenithar, known as the nine divine. Demon-like beings known as Deadra who dwell on the planes of Oblivion have a strong presence on Nirn; seventeen powerful princes are known: Sheogorath, Jyggalag, Sanguine, Clavicus Vile, Mephala, Peryite, Malacath, Hermaeus Mora, Molag Bal, Azura, Boethiah, Hircine, Mehrunes Dagon, Meridia, Namira, Nocturnal, and Vaermina.
