About Me:

I’m Ethan Macfie, or Isarii, as I’m known around these parts. Although I got my start here on Tamriel Foundry, I’ve expanded to writing about more than just TESO, and have collaborated with other fan sites and branched off to my own blog, The Errant Penman. As of this writing I’m engaged as a freelance journalist with MMOGames, where I have the pleasure of sharing my thoughts on the MMO genre at large with the site’s community.

I’m a semi-hardcore casual as fuck gamer that likes to have fun and not take things too seriously. I’ve been on the MMO scene for quite awhile, but only picked up The Elder Scrolls games at Oblivion with the rest of the mainstream players.

Offline I live in Portlandia, have a corgi named Doomhowl, cheer with the Timbers Army as an MLS fan, and have a weakness Guinness that transcends my snobbishness about macrobrews (as well as most dark beers on a nitro tap).

ESO and the Resurgence of the Social Economy
A few days ago I was speaking with TESO Elite’s Garbrac as he wrote his own article on the economics of The Elder Scrolls Online.  We had just learned that public guild stores were only to be available through keep ownership, a limitation we both agreed will prove severely limiting […]
