ESO Mythos in Review: The Mages Guild

Mages Guild ESOIn this guest article Gedalya from Tamriel.org will be discussing the Mages Guild.

He will do so both through an examination of Elder Scrolls (ES) games prior to the Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), as well as ESO itself. Pre-ESO games and accompanying in-game literature we will call lore; we will also refer to in-game literature in ESO as lore.The goal is to provide a breadth first review of the Mages Guild and it’s members with a juxtaposition of the Guild’s representation in ESO and in lore.

The Mages Guild has featured since the first Elder Scrolls video game; The Elder Scrolls: Arena. The Guild is reprsented throughout Tamriel, with guild halls well represented in Major cities of the Empire. Headquartered in the Imperial City is the heart of the Guild, the Arcane University. The guild is lead by an Arch-Mage and a Council of Mages. Other comparable institutions include the College of Winterhold in Skyrim, which predates the Guild.

First Look at Justice System in ESO

eso justice systemESO Guild Summit revealed some more interesting information about the upcoming Justice System.

The Justice System will be a huge addition to Elder Scrolls Online, and it will drastically change the world and the way you and the players around you play the game. It adds a whole new level of player-driven content, and makes your actions have real impact on the world, much like stealing or killing in a single player Elder Scrolls game would. Except ESO is an MMO, and you will not only have to worry about NPCs but your fellow players also.

That’s right, players can either enforce the law or choose to break it. If you do choose to steal and murder, just be aware that there are players out there who will make it their goal to bring justice to Tamriel and hunt you down.
