LORE - The Elder Scrolls Lore in a Minute!

Once upon a time in the mystical land of Tamriel, the benevolent ruler of Cyrodil, Emperor Uriel Septim VII, is secretly usurped and banished to Oblivion by none other than Jafar, er, I mean "Jagar," the king's most trusted advisor. However, our hero is able to oust Jagar by traipsing throughout all the provinces of Tamriel and gathering pieces of the mystical MacGuffin Staff, which is never heard about or seen again despite all of the BS.

Years later, a new hero is hired by Uriel Septim to sail to Daggerfall and investigate numerous mysterious goings-on. Once arrived, Sir-or-Madam Hero discovers a plot to reactivate a humongous fancy mecha. After deciding who gets control over Optimus, in the end it turns out all possible endings are canon, except where the robot goes bezerk and Goomba-stomps the whole of Tamriel.

A few more years later, a disease known as The Blight is sweeping across the North-Eastern province of Morrowind. Papa Uriel, showing the same kind of ingenious logic he used when he appointed his grand vizier, chooses to send a convicted criminal to solve the problem. Shockingly enough though, the criminal-hero manages to stop The Blight Kratos-style by killing a local evil god. High fives all around!

Funnily enough, this wouldn't be the last time someone is released from prison to save the day, but this time ol' Uriel is assassinated by a cult with a name pulled straight from the emo poetry of a highschool girl. Fortunately, our hero, with the aid of Martin Septim, is able to stop the invasion and save Tamriel from certain ruination.

Of course, now it's time for the new Elder Scrolls and it's the doomiest one yet! Alduin, the Nordic aspect of Akatosh (the dragon-god of time), has returned to destroy the current riffraff and begin a new dragony filled world. However, our latest hero is the last of the Dragonborn, a person born with the "soul of a dragon" who might be able to save the day by defeating the god of time and his army of gigantic, evil dark dragon spirits who eat entire towns much larger than you on a regular basis.

Have fun.

Oh and if you're wondering why the Elder Scrolls are significant... they kind of aren't.

That's not even close to a quarter of the lore.

I thought the title said lore, not an insanely brief synopsis of the games.

My problem with the skyrim is there is no real rpg elements, no choices or outcomes. Your basically forced to play the hero and kill alduin, imagine how cool it could be to team up with him and enslaved the world together? Or with dawnguard, this dlc basically forced you to play the good guy again! Spoiler alert! Even if you join the vampires and want to take over the world you still end up killing harkon, once more, imagine how cool it would be to rule tamriel with him? I miss fallout 3's karma system. Yeah it was black and white and had its flaws but if I wanted to destroy the wasteland or save it I actually had a choice on how I wanted it to end.

The Elder Scrolls aren't significant? With all DLCs there are THREE Elder Scrolls to lug around in Skyrim. Plus it was an Elder Scroll that sent Alduin forward in time and CAUSED his appearance in Skyirm at the point in time the latest story takes place. Skyrim is pretty much the Elder Scrolliest of all the Elder Scrolls games to date.

Problem with Skyrim is that you can be everyone. I was a half-Dragon, half-vampire, half-werewolf, cannibal master thief of assassins. Arch Mage of the College, Hero of the War, Champion of every Daedric Prince (though they conflict), Hero of Solsthiem, etc... There really should be some restrictions in that game.

It's kind of impossible to wrap ALL the elder scroll lore in a minute, I mean they wrote 16,000 scripts of lore for it.
Georgie Pineda
Did you guys actually know something about the elder scrolls? You guys are aware that the past and future events in the elder scroll world are written inside the elder scrolls? This means the game is the elderscroll itself.... next time to your homework and read the actual lore.
