The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

About Enderal - The Shards of Order with 4 comments by Latiro on Jul 30th, 2014

Well met,

 many of you might wonder, what happened to the devblog since we released the first episode a year ago. The answer is relatively simple: We simply haven't found the time yet. Since July 2013 we continously started to write new episodes and capture new footage, but due to the fact that the schedules of those who are capable of doing the devblog knowledge-wise are way too loaded, it simply never happened. And, lamentably enough, if we have to choose between PR and the overall quality and process of the project, we choose the latter. :(

 However, a collaboration with a Let's Player is in prospect. So - no promises here -, there might be a new episode coming pretty soon.

 Today, we want to introduce a feature which has been in the works since the early stages of development: The bard-system. Aside from several new instrumental lute and flute-pieces, we work closely with our lector and composer, Holomay to compose bard-songs which can be heard on several occasions ingame. The objective here isn't simply to make the songs beautiful, but to also have them transport lore and the Endralean culture in general. There will be drinking songs, romantic ballads, songs about myths and legends, and religious songs. 

 In the English version of Enderal, all of the songs will be sung by a professional, English-speaking singer. Unfortunately, the English version of the song we'd like to present today hasn't been finished yet, but it will, soon. For now, some of you might enjoy it nonetheless. :)

A big thanks to Frank, Britta (The German singer) and Jocelyn (The English singer). Without you, this feature would not be possible!
 For those of you who like to read, the sixth chapter of the Butcher of Ark has also been proofread and can be read here.

 All the best!SureAI

Skyrim's story of terrorizing dragons is very unoriginal and overused out of a majority medieval fantasy stories as it's been done many times before with minor differences.

I remember reading something about Bethesda losing their original story writer so whomever they had as the replacement was surely an amateur who couldn't even think of anything very creative which hasn't been done many times before, otherwise it's because they wanted an easier to create story to cut development time a little.

I can understand bringing back dragons for monster variety but not at the expense of a original story, Daggerfall Morrowind and yes even Oblivion had more original stories compared to Skyrim's, I haven't played Arena so I can't comment on it.

I don't mind if you wish to vote me down, I am entitled to express my opinion just the same as every one else is. :)

One problem with people on this site is that it doesn't matter if you provide construction criticism or not, you will still get down voted regardless, it's just very one-sided and biased.

But you must admit that dragons language and thu'um and guy that is half dragon is original concept(at least for me)
Buti i also agree that Oblivion and Morrowind were more creative in quests and main story, most of guild quests aree so boring in skyrim.

Its quite disappointing that Skyrim removed most of the stuff in the previous Elder scrolls. Like spellcrafting and weapon variety found in Morrowind.

You 2 are stupid. This game is awesome. Go play older TES titles if you like it so much.

Nostalgia has got nothing to do with it, I'm so tired of this poor overused argument, I've played Oblivion first then Morrowind second and Skyrim third.

I can safely say I found Morrowind much better, it has a greater RPG element, much more gameplay features, and a much better story.

Skyrim disregards a lot of its TES roots to provide a game to a larger audience, it focuses more on Holliwood-like style over substance and superficial things such as graphics over gameplay, and the RPG element has been reduced quite a bit.

Skyrim is what Elder Scrolls is supposed to be. Gone is the flowery sunshine of Cyrodiil, and instead we get cold, barren Skyrim with snowstorms and people and environments that could really fit into the Middle Ages or a natural Fantasy World. As a person who's been modding ES since Morrowind and playing since DAggerfall in 1996, I can only see this game as a natural and excellent heir to the series. Take it from me - Skyrim is Greatness!

Some may claim I'm trolling, but I'm not. I seriously didn't find much entertainment value in Skyrim, and I'm glad that I was playing it on loan rather than having actually bought it. It's Oblivion with a new coat of paint and some better conversation bits. It still doesn't have much of a main story, and the sword play is still questionable at best (Kotaku's one writer said the same thing a few weeks ago). I could go on -- but I think this'll probably get voted down anyway so what's the point? Also…
