    Interesting, never heard that before. I assume in Morrowind it was the Tribunal, in Oblivion (sigh) it was the Amulet of Kings? Skyrim, it was probably Alduin.

    Actually, for Morrowind it was the Heart of Lorkhan. http://www.imperial-library.info/content/nu-mantia-intercept

    It'll be interesting to see what retconning takes place, since this is set in the past.

    For Skyrim it's the White Tower (Throat of the World), however I don't know about it's stone. But keep in mind that stones can change or hold more than one tower, take the Heart for exemple, it was the stone for the Red Mountain, the Brass Tower (Numidium) and Akulakhan.
    In TESV no tower was destroyed but that can happen if the Stormcloak victory is cannon since everything that the Thalmor want is to destroy the last Tower, making everything go back to the state of no-linear time before Akatosh sacrificed himself along with other 7 Aedra to brind order to the Wheel, and only the Empire can stop them. Pity that Numidium was blown into Aetherius, a giant Tower-Mecha that can tear space-time itself by the simple act of walking, the Empire is almost nothing without him (or some CHIM around to bring order).

    Bethesda can't even properly code a single-player game, let alone a multi-player one.

    Blizzard used to have a system like this when selecting a PvP grandmaster. There is a good reason why they dropped it.

    Actually, Emperor-by-vote would be a pretty good idea. Interfaction relations amongst guilds is a recipe for drama if my time watching Eve Online is anything to go by. And what would a TES game be without that?

    as long as they keep churning out single player games I dont have problem with MMO adaptations(the problem is that usually they dont)


    MMOs are fun but its not for some1 with an active life,I no longer feel like wasting weeks on getting fucking pixels is a good time investment and I hate not having the best gear evah

    I will inevitably end up playing this as long as it's first-person and emphasizes exploration over socialization. Also, praying fed ex quests are minimal. At this point, Elder Scrolls plays like an online game, anyway, minus the save-the-world storyline.

    Actually, fuck it! I'm excited. This is where it was all meant to go, anyway. It's Elder Scrolls! The NPC's have as much personality as anyone playing. Might as well put them to work as mannekins.

    I have to agree, TES games are just plain boring to me. Perhaps filling up one of their worlds with other LARPERS will make it more exciting for many people. I had more fun researching and installing mods than I did playing the game for a whole fifteen hours. It's aimed at the casual market and those that don't like video games, it could make money, who knows.

    Not sure why I'm even reading a TES thread, let alone replying. I suppose it's a good way to find out which posters tastes are diametrically opposed to your own.

    Did you have any look at the screenshots in this thread?
    3rd person, comic look. Most likely very social...

    By the fact that there's a monthly fee of course. Glorious plan: make exactly the same game they've been making up until now, except charge people every month instead of just on release. Resourceful, isn't it?

    The only thing I like about MMORPGs is how incredibly definitive they are at signaling the end of a franchise.

    Third person = WoW Clone.

    Disappointment = 99.9% plus that 0.01 on the side.

    I wish people would get over the cloning bit and devise a real MMO on par with the MUDs on Telnet. I'd play!
