Of Men and Mer
A snapshot of the rich, varied factions in The Elder Scrolls: Total War
Picking the Empire is like choosing Britain in Empire or Rome in, well, Rome You start off well, but managing that large expanse from the off could prove tricky.
The Kingdom of Skyrim
The game takes place over two centuries years before the events of the fourth Elder Scrolls game, so don’t expect dragons or Thalmor.
They’re not quite the official ‘bad guys’ of the Elder Scrolls universe yet, but you can play them that way if that’s how you choose to live your life.
Great House Dagoth
This is a cool touch: You can play as House Dagoth, the lost, corrupted Dark Elf house, and strike out from deep inside the Red Mountain.
Great House Redoran
To experience that ‘everything you do being manipulated by House Hlaalu’ feel, play as House Redoran. At least they’re great at fighting.
Clans of the Black Marsh
Black Marsh legitimately feels like a different continent in this mod—it’s a lot like visiting the uncharted New World in Medieval II.
