TF Crier – Heroes, Welcome!

Tamriel Foundry Crier

A weekly roundup of ESO news, discussions and happenings

369803848_db6ab123c9

Communiques from the White Gold Tower – Updates from the Official ESO Site

The Mage Sage, War-master Wheeler, Creature Combat Maven – Maria “All Pro” Aliprando, Grand Inquisitor of Community Relations – Jessica Folsom, along with other representatives from Zenimax journeyed to the annual Pax Prime gathering. There they encouraged amateur heroes and adventurers alike to take up the sword and staff in support of their chosen faction for the coming war against Molage Bal and the fight for the Ruby Throne! Would-be heroes of all stripes waited upwards of 3 hours to glimpse into the many scrying mirrors, on hand, to see what the future holds for them in Tamriel!

The Mages at Zenimax have put forth a contest seeking the next big ‘emote’ and are requesting the help of all citizens! The Mages will select original emotes, submitted by citizens, to be included in the official “Customs, Greetings and Gestures of Tamriel” tome. To enter, citizens will need to submit a short scrying mirror, depicting their ‘emote’, to the White Gold Tower no later than Friday, September 27 at 11:59EDT

The Mages at Zenimax would like to remind all citizens that scrying mirrors, depicting the Orsimer mating dance known as “twerking”, will immediately be smashed.

 

Happenings At Tamriel Foundry

gaming_skyrim_hearthfire_5

Archduke Atropos and companions ventured to Pax Prime and brought back reports, lists, and an interview directly from the official delegation from the White Gold Tower. The Mage Sage was queried and a scrying mirror was created so that citizens could review the information for themselves.

Archduke Atropos is still hard at work updating and adding some new features to TF! In addition to a substantial amount of back-end optimizations, users can look forward to new systems that promote quality discussion, improved user profiles, and comprehensive aesthetic improvements to the look and browsing experience on TF pages. Citizens will be able to experience these new features in the near future!

 

Happenings from the ESO Community

The Nobles from Elder Scrolls Off the Record had the chance to speak with the Mage Sage about many topics, including the Undaunted dungeoneers, Veterans affairs, Stores and other fun stuff! They were able to record their conversation with the Mage Sage and have made it available to all citizens.

Thanks to @lorelai for bringing this to our attention! And thanks to @ozolus for providing a bullet-list summary of the conversation. Lorelai’s post, including Ozolus’s summary can be found here.

The noteworthy Bard, Force, discusses his thoughts about the Mages at Zenimax allowing minions of the Daedric Lord, S’ONY to join the fight against Molag Bal. Furthermore, S’ONY’s minions will help decide which faction will take the Ruby Throne! Surely the the Mages at Zenimax struck an equitable deal with the Daedric Lord, S’ONY.

That Is All!

    Still since the beginning TESO ability was suppose to take 1 to 6 for ability really dont know what the hell Force try to propagand again. He should probable know that since he is so into the game right now. Oh wait 6 month ago Force was skeptic about the game so how could he know about the 1 to 6 ability ?????

    I’ve missed being able to read the Crier on a Monday work morning. ;) Thanks for the write-up @Grimalkin and all the links. Looks like I have a bit of ESO news to catch-up with.

    “The Mage Sage, War-master Wheeler”. Hahah, I’m so using that from now on.

    I don’t know how they are going to make it viable for the console, especially with the limited number of buttons on the controller. How will they be able to use a hotbar?

    Because the game will only allow 5+1 macro-able abilities on the hotbar at once, you could easily setup a control scheme for it.

    Thank you, you’re too kind.

     

    I’d like to thank all the important people in my life who helped me achieve this magnificent reward. M’aiq the Liar, for always keeping a smile on my face in the most troubling of times. Queen Ayrenn, for leading our people in these troubled times. Sheogorath, Prince of Madness for giving cheese to everyone! And last, but certainly not least, the masterminds of Tamriel Foundry. You guys are the best.

     

    In all seriousness, I do enjoy reading these threads. I only hope that when ESO goes live that Tamriel Foundry grows into an even larger, amazing community. Unlike the community that is World of Warcraft’s forums. I can’t wait to venture fourth into Tamriel and watch Entropy Rising kick ass and take names.

    My main concern is them scaling down the overall gaming experience so it can work with consoles. I’m talking beyond skill mapping to controls. Obviously, they need to make the game work on consoles, but I think a once size fits all approach would be a total failure. For PC/Mac, they should make sure to capitalize on the platform.

    I figure there will be millions playing ESO, and a lot of them haven’t joined any fan site/forum yet – I think a lot are waiting for the official ESO forums to open up, I just hope they don’t wait as long as GW2, opening the forums the week/day of launch.  Anyway my point is I think we will get a lot more members especially at launch, we will all help spread the word of Tamriel Foundry and I expect a lot more traffic than we already get.

    I’ve already recommended Tamriel Foundry to the people working at my local EB games, hopefully having them join will cause them to spread the word when people go in and ask about ESO.

    With regard to the keyboard/controller issue this article has a few good points http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/07/12/can-elder-scrolls-online-work-on-consoles

    @Zaydok Definitley agree with what you’re saying, but I doubt the PC version will be scaled down in any way. I’m pretty sure that there is an interview somewhere where Paul Sage confirms this (kind of).

    @Grimalkin almost didn’t recognize you there with the new avatar ;)

    The build notes would be proof, and we don’t have access to those.

    When S’ony asked to put ESO on the PS4, should have gotten a waiver in writing about no network fee and waved that in Microsoft’s face.

    Does anyone know of any keyboards that have an analog or something similar?

    For me, the only drawback to computer gaming over console, is that the wasd keys arent pressure sensitive for gaming. At least, not in any keyboard ive seen.
