The Elder Scrolls Hotseats


"As a solo player, you had it easy. You blitzed the AI. You turtled against the AI. You conquered your computer opponents in every conceivable fashion. When endless stacks marched against you, you directed your forces on the battlefield and personally left the ground littered with enemy corpses. You came, you played, you conquered.

Now, a new challenge awaits you.

Enter a world of chaos and intrigue, of wonder and death. Only the clever among you will survive here, in this tumultuous land where every decision could lead to glorious victory…or utter destruction. It is not enough to be a great tactician. You must learn every aspect of military strategy, from the grandest of concepts to the minutest of details. Armies must be moved wisely, agents trained and deployed, diplomacy carefully cultivated. Your economy must be a golden industry, driving your empire to impossible heights. Through it all, you test your mettle against living, breathing humans, opponents with their own dreams and ambitions. Do you hold to honor and expect your allies to do the same? Or are you a knife in the dark, plunging into the backs of those who least expect it?

The choices are yours. All you need to do is join. Join a Hotseat Campaign. Experience Total War at its most breathtaking, and embrace the intricacies which capture men’s souls…or drive them mad.

Your destiny awaits you. Do you have the courage to claim it?"

Can I see a custom campaign called a gathering of heroes? I can explain it a bit more in detail here so if you don't wish to read you don't have to.
A gathering of heroes is going to be every hero of each respecting faction. For example you can have the Hero of Kvatch for the Empire and the Nerevarine for the kingdom of Morrowind. You'll unite each of the provinces and make every country a solid country. I can give examples for names such as the kingdom of Skyrim, the kingdom of Morrowind, the kingdom of Daggerfall ect. When I mean heroes I mean powerful people who fought for their country in their respective eras.

The catch of the gathering of heroes is that it's basically no set time, no canon, just a battle of which country can unite all of tamriel using the best their country ever produced over the three different eras.

It's like seeing the gathering of heroes from Dynasty Warriors. Where they added all the generals and lords and ladies into one single scenario and they fought for the unification of China.
I just think this kinda campaign would just add more hours to the game and make it fun.
I just love the idea of using the hero of Kvatch to battle against the last Dragonborn from the kingdom of Skyrim to die fighting the Nerevarine.

It's just a small idea and you can further discuss it with me in the comments section and tell me what I did wrong. I know wayyy too much about Elder Scrolls lore seeing as I've played every single game from Bethesda and it's just the idea of the gathering of heroes that really wants me to try it out in Medieval 2's engine since I love Total war.

Nice idea indeed...

Yes, some special models for the various TES heros with unique abilities and a good scripting quest-system and it can be shaped...

we'll keep it in mind! ;)

Thanks for suggestion.

Once there will be a day, when I run out with real lore events for the game, I might start doing things like this. But that is definitely very far from thia day....

I have problems with the 1.31patch. I followed the guide but i don't see differences.

Were you asked to overwrite old files? You must do that... If it didnt, it means you extracted it to wrong folder. The_Elder_Scrolls must come to .../Medieval II Total War/mods, not into .../Medieval II Total War/mods/The_Elder_Scrolls.

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Yes I've overwrite..but it didn't work

Is this your only TES folder? If you had more, the launcher would be always launching only the folder called The_Elder_Scrolls, not the the patched one.
If thats not the case, then probably try reinstalling...

I've tried to I will try to reinstall TES TW too

Guys I had a playthrough as the Stormcloaks in the Campaign created by you guys and I think West Skyrim should have the High Queen Elisif should be the leader of her own faction. Her name could be Elisif the fair, as just in Skyrim. I believe she should have her own faction because when I'm fighting with the Empire and I'm beating them, The Aldmeri Dominion would declare war on the Empire, alongside some other factions as well and it's just a land grab from there. I think creating a seperate faction for West Skyrim should be good. Also once I united Skyrim under the Stormcloaks, there wasn't an event to name me High King of all of Skyrim. You should make that an event and also make it to where his stat isn't just "King of west skyrim".

Thanks for the suggestions...

In terms of new factions we are quite limited (due to the 30 + slaves) and since we plan a few newer custom campaigns (as said, one with an Akaviri faction possibly), a lot of new factions cannot be, but WSkyrim is already in store.
Custom scenarios in any case require revisitation and editing, so we may displace units and factions differently in future...

Whereas, yep, the High King with scripted events, ancillaries and traits needs to be there to reproduce the lore, essentially, but as Jadli said they are already in.

Step by step the custom scenarios will be fully polished as it's due :)

The separate faction actually already exists, it was however not ready to be used in 1.31 yet. It will be used in singleplayer in the next version for sure, used for example in The Stormcloak Rebellion, as well as almost all other scenarios. Well, the trait "king of eastern skyrim" is updated to High King, once you control all of Skyrim.
