"Elder Scrolls are artifacts of immense power that aid an alliance in the ongoing battle to control Tamriel by conferring bonuses to every member of that alliance. Each alliance has a special stronghold in Cyrodiil where their Elder Scrolls are kept and protected – but enemy alliances can break in and take them if they are not guarded properly. Once access is gained and a Scroll taken, it must be taken back across Cyrodiil and placed in the alliance’s stronghold. Only then are the bonuses of the Scroll bestowed upon all the members of that alliance.

Capture an Elder Scroll, protect it, and return it to your alliance’s stronghold to wield its power and gain bonuses."

Can i say, CALLING ALL ASSASSINS, THIEVES, AND SCOUTS!!! I believe there should be a guild whose sole duty is capturing and protecting the scrolls.


GLORY TO THE PACT

Will there be a specific number of Elder Scrolls found in the game?

I'm sure that responsibility will be handed out to people. My gut tells me that factions will want to defend these scrolls at all costs, so a group or even a guild might not be necessarily enough to take it alone.

I'd say when a faction attacks a stronghold,there will also be an Elder Scroll hidden in the castle,so that faction has to take it from them,and the other faction must defend with their last breath.

I wonder what will be more important: Gaining the Elder scroll or conquering the stronghold?

An Elder Scroll is an artifact of great power, but from military point of view a conquered stronghold is much more worth. What is going to happen if you can defend your stronghold, but thiefs steal its Elder Scroll? Where are the thieves going to place it? In another Stronghold?

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?

The point is getting the scroll and bringing it to your stronghold so you get the buff it offers. I don't think it'll be able to be stolen.

just my thought. It would be interesting to have any Scoll another effect.

The developers said that when you bring a scroll to your stronghold your army will get some special powers or auras,dunno. But they will get power.

I think it hints towards the scrolls will be able to be stolen by thieves and whatnot

I think "Every scroll" is grammatically right. And written right.

It would be interesting to have every Scroll another effect.

I get you now. Yeah, that's the whole premise behind the scrolls in the first place. You get a faction-wide buff when your faction controls a scroll.1

I wasn't being a dick, no need for you to be one.

If you are saying that you think every scroll should have a different effect -- like one giving an alliance point buff, another giving a health buff, etc -- I agree with you.

But if the whole faction gets a buff because a few people captured a scroll, it might anger a few people. For example: 20 EP capture a scroll, then two players, of equal skill, are in an unbalnce because of something, one of them has never done. On the other hand it does provide faction loyalty. I don't have a strong view on it but I thought I'd put a point in there.
