TESting Your Knowledge

Elder Scrolls fans, get your thinking caps on! In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing some tricky trivia — questions that even caused some of our BGS developers to scratch their heads — put together by the fine folks at The Imperial Libary. Big thanks to them, as well as Todd, Kurt, Bruce, and Emil for their fact checking and input.

Additionally,  we’ll be randomly giving away copies of The Infernal City: An Elder Scrolls Novel — signed by author Greg Keyes — to participants that correctly answer the trivia (see rules at the end of this post).

With that said, here’s the first question…

After Talos acquired and powered the Numidium, the mage Zurin Arctus supposedly became known as the Underking. However, records make mention of another Underking, long before Arctus’ time. What was this Underking’s name at the end of the Second Era?

Rules after the break…

  1. I think that’s the only question – I’m reading it as that there will be further questions in subsequent posts, forming further competitions.

    I would expect the timezone to be Eastern Standard Time.

  2. This is so unfair! lol I’m a year away from being eighteen, and if all the questions are this easy I would’ve gotten a book~ or at least my nerdy self would feel better ;P

  3. Okay, this question amkes no sence. How can the second Underking be before Arctus, at the end of the second era, when Arctus is AT the end of the Second Era?
