Elder Scrolls Online Questions Answered
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

ZeniMax Online Studios has posted the results of a new Q&A answering fan questions about the upcoming MMO adaptation of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls universe. The developer answered questions on a variety of topics related to The Elder Scrolls Online.

Are many changes being made to Skyrim to make it differ or stand out from the Skyrim we have recently come to know and love? If so, could you detail some of these changes? – By Brandon Donio

The Elder Scrolls Online is set 1,000 years earlier than Skyrim, so you may notice that some of the ancient Nord ruins are a little less worn and weathered than in Skyrim’s time. You’ll also find towns, like Nimalten in the Rift, that are gone and nearly forgotten by Skyrim’s Fourth Era, but are alive and thriving in ESO’s Second Era.

More About The Lore Of StarCraft II
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has posted the sixth round of its Ask Creative Development Q&A series for StarCraft II. The answers focus on the lore of the popular sci-fi real time strategy game, giving fans insight into the storyline behind the frenzied combat.

Question: Are you planning to extend or add to the Tal'darim and their story in the coming expansions? Will they even be present in them?

Answer: Oh, you'll be hearing from the Tal'darim. An interesting note about them: I've seen people reference the fact that they are the Protoss who fell victim to Ulrezaj on Aiur. But no one has pointed out that the Tal'darim in Wings seem to have been around for a long time—much longer than the refugees on Aiur.

The Tal'darim in the Dark Templar trilogy are actually not a faction; they are a cult of drug-addicted Protoss looking for a cause. But their defining feature is that they chose to leave the community of Protoss on Aiur. So they took their name ("the Forged") from an ancient sect that parted ways with the Aiur Protoss. That ancient sect is the Tal'darim you meet in Wings—a full faction.

We didn't go into the difference in the game because Jim Raynor would not have known about the Tal'darim in the Dark Templar trilogy, and so would not have been discussing them. Also, many players would not be aware of that group either.
