Lemme post my theory on Nirn spacetime here.

Its northern hemisphere looks normal, but southern one is "in reverse", instead of coming together in one point, the meridians diverge into infinity. Nirn is still a finite ball of matter, but its spacetime itself is distorted in such a fashion.

Moreover, Space and Time coordinates are linked in such a way that the amount of time between the beginning and the end of each Kalpa depends on the length of the parallel you are on.

Travelers from Tamriel towards either of the poles experience time dilation.
At the North Pole, Time moves so fast that you can't reach it before the end of current kalpa, and to outside observer everything that goes there appears to be frozen in time.
Closer to the South Pole, on the other hand, time moves so slow there that you can walk for 4000 years and not reach it, but when you finally turn back and return, not much time has passed in Tamriel in the meantime.

Basically, the closer to the North Pole you get the less time you have before the end of the current Kalpa - your time gets "eaten away". Which leads me to believe that World Eater form of Alduin resides at the North Pole, perhaps in form of some weird black hole. If you reach the pole geographically, at some point your time left becomes less then the time until next perceivable moment and you experience the World End, slipping into Alduin's Maw.
Alduin eating Nirn at the end of each kalpa appears to me as the whole planet getting sucked into this Maw, parallels getting shrinked to zero to fit in, landmasses falling into the singularity that is his stomach.

So, in the end, you can never reach the North Pole - there's not enough time in the world for it.

The South Pole is unreachable too, but for the opposite reason - space around it is stretched so much it's essentially behind an event horizon.
Perhaps that's where Aldmeris is now.

>> No.50498230

fair to speculate about that since time essentially passes how akatosh wants it to pass

though what does this model really explain or where can things coherent with it be observed in the elder scrolls universe?
don't get me wrong, this is some neat theory, but how is it connected to what happens in other lore sources?
For instance, how does this model explain dragon breaks? What if someone uses teleportation magic to get to one of the poles?

>> No.50498236

Such as?

Overall it's based on a certain post by Cuckbird:

>Tamriel is the present. It is literally the center of time.
>Akavir is the East and it is in the future.
>Hammerfell is to the West and is in the past.
>Traveling from west to east means more than taking time to sail, it means sailing across time.

>The moons? Now they're really weird when it comes to time.

>> No.50498302

Yes, albeit vaguely.

Things like how no one has ever been to Aldmeris (it's evaporating in time/just is Ald Tam RUGH!), why the Nords left Atmora, why and how (moving at strange angles, following the stars, whatever) the Yokudans left Yokuda, Cyrus having trouble sailing back to Yokuda and whatever emperor who invaded Akivir (the most interesting thing about all of this is that he was allegedly made of wood).

>> No.50498314

I think I just came up with an interesting idea for my UESRPG game. Thanks anon!

>> No.50498441

As >>50498302 said, the unavailability of Aldmeris for one.
Also, invading Tsaesci force probably passed Atmora on their way to Tamriel because pic related. And then they vowed to serve Dragonborn Reman and formed the Dragonguard. Coincidence? Maybe.
Also, according to legends Atmora froze over time, so in my interpretation Alduin just slowly ate the space that was separating him from this continent. Perhaps slowly gnawing on it in his sleep, perhaps in some bursts.
Nords, who are descended from Atmorans, are also the only culture that has a World-Eating Dragon in their pantheon (inb4 Redguards, these are different story).

But mostly this theory was just made up for the heck of it.

>> No.50498527

Plus there's all the "eat it to become it" stuff, how Akavir mirrors Tamriel and their search for the Dragonborn and the "Chrome Device" (is that still a thing?) and how that all ties into Talos.

It's either: representative of the past/future (like a metaphor), actually a different kalpa/cycle, or both.

They just are because they are. Time zones. Tamriel is the center of the universe, there ain't any other places that matter.

This is so, so, so obvious that I don't know how everyone doesn't realize this, but the Far Shores ARE Tamriel.

>> No.50498826

And the greatest Yokudan kings got mpreg.

>> No.50498924

The concept of temporal coordinates being tied to east-west spatial ones is not integrated in my model for now, although I did try to envision it in relation to multiple kalpas. Alas, this only resulted in SAN loss.

I think it has mostly metaphysical and allegorical meaning. Like Redguards emerging from the last Kalpa in the far West of current one, or Chimer leaving Sumurset in self-exile to the East.
You could also view it as a weird sort of timezone system.

So far, I can see Time slowly rotating on the North-South axis frow East to West in a sort of current (or, if you will, the World floating upon Time in the opposite direction). So, when you go West, it's as if you are being swept by Time to the past faster than usual, and if you go East you are basically running ahead of all the other World, to the Future.

The only way if affects the model is that during the World-Eating, Alduin would appear to come from northeast instead of just north.

>> No.50498997

Nature of TES, unreliable narrators and contradicting sources. Essentially.

>> No.50499082

Because 2920 is a work of historical fiction written many years after the fact.

Every source makes it weirder: how they are referred to as snakes, vampires, or shapeshifters, how they appear as literal snakes in multiple texts, how the snake imagery related to the Padomaics, their whole "eat it to become it" and egg philosophy, their relation to the Empire of Cyrodiil and the dragons, their relation to the men of Akavir (and the soldiers you can see in Oblivion), what might possibly be a totemic society, and the very nature, ambiguity and legend, of Akavir itself.

This is definitely intentional.

>> No.50499122

Conflicting ideas and descriptions.

To be fair, 2920 is fiction, but that doesn't mean it's baseless:
>Carlovac Townway:
>There are very old warriors, survivors of Uriel V's ill-fated invasion, and they told me what they saw. I stand by my descriptions that the Akavir Potentates were serpentine, not only in temperament, but in physical appearance. Even if I did not have witnesses, there are too many descriptions of them as snakes to assume that all writers used the same metaphor. There is much in Redguard history which suggests ancient connections to the Tsaesci as well. Not only are many of the greatest heroes clearly influenced by Akaviri as well as Redguard culture - Gaiden Shinji, for example - But the whole cult of Satakal and the dungeon called Fang Lair... It is too coincidental. We are a rare generation in Tamriel, when few of us have seen any denizen of Akavir. I suspect that we're lucky in that.

One thing I love about Skyrim is how it seems to be moving closer to this model. It's a LOT harder to tell a redguard from a cyrodiil from a nord from a Breton in that game, and even some lines like Bosmer/Altmer are blurred. I want to see more of that in the future, with the distinct races only existing as official designations. In my mind, the idea of children taking on the race of the mother was only ever a legal distinction.

>> No.50500167

Hey Seht (or anyone else tied to the new UESRPG edition), do you have any plans for the number of skills/talents governed by a certain characteristic?

Because right now, if you put down Agility and Intelligence as favoured characteristics, you just have good access to 18 of 28 skills (25 of 38 counting Sub-Professions). Compare that to something like going Strength and Endurance, which relate to just 4 skills. There's also some redundancy, where Endurance does nothing Strength doesn't do better, and Intelligence does everything Personalty does (except Charm).
Now, I'm not calling for complete equality, and I do realise that characteristics like Strength and Endurance have great usage outside of skills, but it still seems too heavy on one side, especially in terms of Intelligence.
It just feels like you're left with a lot more options if you get Intelligence and Agility.

It happens in Talents as well, where Endurance leaves you with 4 options, Personality with 7, Intelligence with 27, and Agility with 36.
You've done a good job with making Strength feel worthwhile in terms of talents though, as it leaves you with 19 options.
Might have miscounted, but you get the picture.

I mean, in the current situation Bosmer seem good, and I won't stand for that.

Also, how come the Talent "Businessman" requires Intelligence specifically, when it's a direct boon to Commerce rolls, and Commerce as a skill is governed by both Intelligence and Personality?
The only Personality-based Commerce-related Talent is "Charlatan", where you just stop using Commerce and use Deceive instead. Admittedly, Charlatan is somewhat cheaper to get than Businessman, but Businessman seems to be much better, meaning a Int trader is probably just straight out better than a Per trader.

I'd also like to point out that unless you're a alchemist/enchanter, there's only one Crafting Talent that's worth getting, and that's "Efficient". And that really only applies to Smithing, though I guess you could argue it counts for Fletching, and maybe even Physical Craft or Engineer. That's up for the DM, I guess.
Either way, Alchemy has 6 related Talents, Enchanting has 6, Smithing has 1, and the seven other stock Professions don't have anything strictly related to them. So there's probably room there for something tied to Acting/Art, which gives a Personality-heavy character more options. Or maybe just open up "Efficient" to make it more general, so that someone with Seamanship can use it to sail faster or someone with Bureaucracy whenever some weirdo takes that skill can do paperwork faster or something.

Overall, I'm really stoked for more UESRPG, and I think it's looking great so far, but these things stood out to me.

But how would that work? I suppose you could group together "Nedic" races (Bretons, Imperials, Nords) and Dominion Elves (Altmer, Bosmer) but the others are too distinct.

>Nords should be broken up among distinct tribal groups and clans

Maybe not necessarily in tribes and clans, but making the holds be more like medieval duchies, being their own states loosely united by a monarch and having a common Nordic culture but with varieties and different influences.
This could also work for the regions of Cyrodiil, and not just Colovians/Nibenesse, but the Golden Coast, West Weald, being distinct.

The Nords have always had a very tribal aspect to them. Prior to Skyrim their leaders were almost exclusively referred to as 'Chieftains.'
Though as I said, it would make the most sense that if with most groups, their tribal origins evolved to be more cultural distinctions, when I say this I'm thinking sort of along the lines of groups like the Franks.
Though there should still be a fair amount of actual tribal groups like the Skaal within Skyrim.

Agility and Intelligence remain strong in this edition, but we've done some things that are going to shift power back into Strength and Willpower.

An example: Block is now far better for several reasons, giving Strength characters a defense that works in many cases better than Evade.

For Willpower, our damage spells now have the option to scale with WpB in some ways and Willpower also plays into magicka cost reduction in a neat way that can enable you to run a heavy Willpower focused mage and be successful with less Int.

Talents are getting entirely redone, and I think you're right that things are a bit lopsided, but at the end of the day Intelligence is still going to be the "skillmonkey" characteristic. Agility is going to take a hit for sure though, there's no way around that.

As for the specifics of current talents, don't worry too much about them. We're overhauling them and most of those attached systems (like all of crafting!)

so i thought about and i like it. especially the implications.
as your pic shows, norn is more less a world-on-the-inside. that would mean that moons and planets are on the inside of Mundus and so the mananauts do not have to travel through void to reach moons. also that explains why you can explore space in a moth ship which is basically an animal.

this also means that there is no mysterious barrier in the middle of space, but nirn itself is the barrier from aetherius.

now the sun and the stars would be a holes in the seas, right? then the sun m, magnus, can actually be lyg or aldmeris that you kind of can travel to.

im not a big fan of the time idea, but then perhaps the time travel is the way to escape the end of kalpa? redguards call it moving at strange angles, and so on. or maybe you cant travel beyond your own kalpa?

im not gonna roll with this idea, but still it was neat to think about

>Is this Lorkhan a Satanic figure or not
He's a being tainted by original sin and broken (as /pol/ would say "black pill"), but due to a shard of Memory (Nir - perfect creation), he started walking the path toward redemption. He constructs Mundus, a place of free will wherer when Amaranth (God's Love) comes, sins will be forgiven (think confession) and everyone judged whether they can go forward into endless Heavens outside "the dream".

This makes Lorkhan the first hero.

Jesus is the meta-hero. Lorkhan is the ur-hero.

It's not really relevant or related to real world. However, TES world is one where hero is a metaphysical reality, so Lorkhan is an important figure in that way.
We're also mussing about daedra and aedra right now and aedra seem to be straight up angelic spirits while daedric Princes are outright demonic - no final decision about lesser daedra.

So I'm running a game for my mates and I just want to run their PCs past you guys to see if they are trying to pull a fast one on me. They're more familiar with the nitty gritty lore than I am, but I'm the only one competent enough to actually GM.

All the players are in a mercenary band running away from a pissed off a Telvanni magister, a Forsworn band, and a rival Merc band

>Argonian Veteran: From Bruma, fought in the Great War with the Legion. Favors the spear and the shield, nothing too crazy here. Party leader.

>Nord McNordicson: Son of a Headsman, from Eastmarch. Was a legion soldier with Scours-the-Marsh, but got wrapped up in the Markarth Incident. Defected from the Stormcloaks after he contracted Lycanthropy after a Werewolf attacked him while on patrol.

>Dickass Khajiit: Fairly convoluted back story, but the player is the best RPer in the group, so I gave it a pass. His family was caught up in a hostile takeover by a rival caravan, forcing his siblings, his only surviving family, to flee Elsweyr, scattering across Tamriel. He fled to Hammerfel, where he performed for coin with his lute and dance. Now scours Skyrim looking for his brother, where he contracted vampirism. The circumstances heavily imply that his brother is either studying vampires, or is a vampire himself. Uses Khajiit kung fu as he has forsaken blades after he killed his lover in a drug/blood thirst fueled rager. Party face and rouge. Cheeky bugger

>Orc Vigilant: Former Vigilant of Stendarr, who separated or was persecuted by the group after being mindbroken by Sheogorath and used by Herma Mora. Was a Vigilant scholar and archivist. Was studying how Dwemer dealt with the supernatural, and now studies them in an effort to win back his sanity for Mora by knowing everything about them. Is played like a Grandpa with alzheimers as opposed to LOL SO RANDUM crazy person.

Sure. It was talked about earlier in this thread if you want to read it.

Basically, it's like time zones. Yokuda is the past, Tamriel is the present (the starry heart aka the only place that matters) and Akavir is the future. When you go to, for example, Yokuda, you are traveling into the past.

No, alduin got thrust forward in time by an elder scroll. There was no proof that he was actually going to destroy the world at the time of skyrim. He hadn't during the time the dragon cult, and there was no signs he was doing anything but reasserting authority over the world. He was happy eating souls and ruling humans.

I honestly think this is just do to Bethesda's unwillingness to bring actual change to the setting.

From Daggerfall's Manual:
>The civilization that Tiber Septim forced onto the subjects of his Empire has nearly fallen: as The Elder Scrolls predicted, the bloody wheel has nearly turned all the way back to anarchy.
The fall of the Empire was something planned for a long time, Bethesda just never had the balls to go along with it.
Given the foreshadowing that is provided in Morrowind, I would guess that it was originally planned that the Empire would fall after the events of Oblivion (especially seeing as Oblivion as a game had been planned since at least Battlespire).

Oh, yeah sure. Let me get my notes

>> No.50531249

Now that I think of it, Hermaeus Mora was originally an Atmoran demon, from the time it was an elven kingdom called Altmora. So Atmoran ruins could potentially be absolutely rad.

Speaking of that, what would Altmoran elves look like? Falmer? Or maybe Dwemer?

>> No.50531327

Plus, everyone was bigger back then, so the ruins will be even more cyclopean.

No clue on the elves. That's getting into some weirdness right there.

>> No.50531493

Yeah, true.

Altmoran elves probably didn't share the culture/ancestry with other elven nations, because they didn't hail from Aldmeris:
>Auri-El led the original Aldmer against the armies of Lorkhan in mythic times, vanquishing that tyrant and establishing the first kingdoms of the Altmer, Altmora and Old Ehlnofey.
(Varieties of Faith in the Empire)

Which makes me think that Dwemer, being alien fucks they are, actually descended from Atmoran elves and not Sumurset settlers.

>Scours-the-Marsh: The eldest hatchling to a family of warriors, his great grand sires having taken part in the sacking of Morrowind, and their sires before there were trapped in Oblivion after Dagon sealed the Black Marsh gates during the Argonian counter assault. As a young lizard he struck out on his own, joining a bandit group in Cyrodiil led by a charismatic, yet bloodthirsty, Argonian, Blade-Fangs. StM was his protégé and Lieutenant, enforcing discipline and meting out justice amongst the ranks. Eventually they caught the attention of the Legion after months of malingering and raiding in Bruma. StM was tasked by Blade-Fangs to assassinate the Imperial commander hunting them down, after introducing him to the organization's inner circle, a cult to Boethia. Uneasy with the revelation that the bandits where the militant arm to a Daedric cult, but unwilling to disobey his master's orders, he snuck into the Imperial camp to take out the Legate.

>What he didn't count on was being betrayed by a Boethian Cultist. The Legate's tent was empty, and when he exited the tent he was greeted by drawn bows and stacked shields. He was captured, the intended target informing him that an anonymous letter was left in his tent the night before warning him of his impending doom. Upon being shown the letter in question the Argonian recognized the penmanship of his master. It took little effort to convince him to show the Imperials the location of his camp. Scours-the-Marsh stood at the Legate's side during the assault, and after a great deal of negotiation was able to join in on exacting revenge against those who betrayed him. Upon his confrontation with Blade-Fangs it was revealed that he betrayed him simply before he was betrayed, his meteoric rise through the ranks and respect of the men threatened his position. Scours-the-Marsh wounded him and left him to burn in the ruins of the camp.

>> No.50535221

>He would later enlist in the Imperial legion under the command of the Legate that sparred his life. Despite all discrimination due to his past, he proved to be a ruthless soldier, tireless warrior, and later, efficient commander. Over his years of service he dedicated himself to the legion, and by the time he became Praefect the Great War had broken out. He fought in Hammerfel, then later in Cyrodiil during the siege of the Imperial City under Titus Mede. The climax of the Great War saw him become a Tribune. After the White Gold Concordat Scours-the-Marsh retired from the Legion, taking his savings and taking off to Skyrim, the farthest he could go from Alinor. In the Outbreak of the Civil War, StM wandered Skyrim gathering fighters into a flourishing mercenary band, many of whom were veterans that had served with him. The Outlanders, as they call themselves, take the fight to the Aldmeri Dominion were possible, protecting Imperial interests under the guise of Banditry and sellswordmanship.

>After a particularly nasty argument with his seconds in command spurred on by outside manipulation by House Telvanni and the Thalmor, Scours-the-Marsh left the Outlanders, disbanding them. One of his Lieutenants, an old friend and fellow Imperial Captain, filled the void in his absence, an Imperial by the name of Titus Aurelius Crucifixus, in an attempt to preserve the group should he return. His rival, an Alik'r warrior by the name of Yeshua, took many of the men and made his own band, the Hammers of Anvil, and actively hunts the grizzled Argonian.

>Scours-the-Marsh now leads a small band of adventurers and misfits, seeking to take out his enemies and fulfill his debts to his men and comrades, before retaking his Mercenary company and peacefully retiring in Argonia.

>> No.50535317


>Scours-the-Marsh himself is a lizard of few words, terse, straight forward, and bold. The first one into the breach and the last one out StM, or Marsh as his friends call him, is a frontlines leader, but can allow his vendettas to blind him, separating himself from his men so he can settle a score personally. This quiet fury has almost cost him his life, but his skill as a duelist is comparable to his skill as a rank and file fighter. Possessing a mind as mercantile as it is tactical, Marsh would rather intimidate his way through a negotiation than try and waste time appealing to the logic and common sense of another. However, knowing what to say and how to say it is just as vital when pressuring someone as it is when using a more silvered tongue.

>He greatly enjoys chunky stews and stiff ale, as well as grilled fish and dry wines. He prefers books on history and warfare, and would prefer a still silence broken by the steady thrum of wildlife than the babbling of a bard and a fire. Despite being Argonian he dislikes swimming, at least in his gear, after an a boating incident during his time in the Legion.

From one of the books in Craglorn, describing how the Mage tried to hide from the Serpent:

>Or could she—and I do not write this lightly—seek to hide herself behind a dragon—a broken dragon? To travel the line, and then cut it; wrapping herself in a context where no one could ever follow?

I feel like I almost understand this, but not quite. I think it means travelling into the future then altering the present so the timeline you are in cannot occur, but I thought timelines recombine after a dragon break?

I don't think there are any lore sources on this, but this is an interesting idea nonetheless. Give us your headcanon.

>> No.50541940

Well, lorewise, it hasn't happen, but it might actually happen. I doubt that Bethesda would actually do this, but one can hope
However it would depend on the outcome of Skyrim, I'd assume
What I'd think that could happen in such a case would be that the Empire wins the Civil War but sees that it cost them more than they expected and with the Aldmeri Dominion breathing down their neck again they need to focus their power someplace else
So to ensure that the Legion can stay where necessary they give the East Empire Trading Company an Imperial Charter for exploitation of one of the lost provinces (Black Marsh, Hammerfell or Morrowind, your pick)
From that point on it goes exactly like the East India companies of Europe; small tradeposts, building up monopolies, buying private armies, recruiting local nobles, and finally subjegating the more powerful nobles
Would actually be pretty cool if they based a game around this happening
