  1. Thanks, syronj! I wasn’t too fond of the seemingly over-explained descriptions at the beginning, but once he got out of that whole thing it was pretty good. I have a good feeling about this book!

    @James: I think this is far enough into the future that we don’t have to worry about it, at least not for a while. As much as I hate to even think it, I doubt the Elder Scrolls Genre will even last that long. I’m even worried that TES5 won’t exist for quite some time. I fear a TES MMO in the works due to the domain names of “elderscrollsonline.com” and others being purchased by Bethsoft’s parent company, and even Todd Howard saying “it could happen” when asked about it.

  2. Ugh. The thought of an Elder Scrolls MMO makes me sad :(

    I’ve never wanted that. I don’t want to level through another uninspired MMO, and certainly not if it prevents my favorite single-player game. There’s nothing about ES that makes me want to share it with other people. Especially MMO players.

  3. On actiontrip.com, ther is a teaser about ESV. This teaser is to be included with The Infernal City. Heres what the release says:

    There’s an Elder Scrolls novel ready to hit shelves in November and as it turns out it features a teaser for Elder Scrolls V. The book blurb supposedly says: “A novel that takes places forty-five years after the Oblivion Crisis, which is the story of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion game and the expansion pack Shivering Isles. It partly bridges the gap for the next game, which is set 200 years after the Oblivion crisis.”

    The Elder Scrolls: Infernal City is going to be on sale as of November 27th.

    Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. It’s pretty good they never turned this into an MMOG. Just hope the fifth installment ends up being less generic than its predecessor.

    There you have it.

  4. I hope they hold off on ES V, until the modders can finish all the blank land on ES IV. Then give us some time to explore it!
