Forsworn

I was just wondering if Reachmen (forsworn) would appear in Elderscrolls online because according to lore they were not driven from the reach until Tiber Septim attacked them. And other lore states that they did exist because they moved to Skyrim during the firt era.
Thoughts?

They will probably be in the Reach in Skyrim,because even TS isn't even born then,he is born after the events of TESO,so yea,I'm hoping that they'll be there. Thumbs up!

I am definately hoping there'll be Reachmen, since I'm going to wright a story about it. I think (lore-wise) there were rebels but they weren't called Forsworn until Madanach.

If they are included in the game, they'll most likely be a less barbaric incarnation - the Forsworn we see in Skyrim's time being driven to this state over centuries. I'm betting on it being a plot point for the Bretons, perhaps a closer look at their history. However, the developers have already stated that alliances won't be able to travel to each other's lands, maybe there'll be some instanced battling over the mines in that area? Certainly room for some interesting RP.

As stated by Zenimax the western part of Skyrim won´t be part of the game from the beginning: The West is ruled from Solitude, which has tight ties to the imperials, and therefore they´re enemies, too. So, no Reach, no Reach-men ;)

(Except some Reach-men travel arround the world)

well the *forsworn* wont be in. The Reachmen, pretty much.

Weve seen one of their weapons (Wich looks exactly like the Forsworn weapons from skyrim) in the Introduction to Elderscrolls Online Video (the PvP section of the dunmer with the awkwardly caucasian skin colour)
So i doubt that we wont see any of them.
Probably not actually in the reach tho. Maybe its the witchmen of high rock (who seem to be simmilar)
Or maybe Reach will be part of High Rock (tho i dont actually think it should be according to the lore)

also Reachmen aint bretons. Reachmen are as much of mongrelman you can get. They might be cyro-nordic. but by now they probably have some blood of every single race in them. because they sure enjoy that sload booty.

The history of the Witchmen of high rock goes back as to the very first Pocket guide to the empire.
The Reachmen have never been stated to be pure Bretons.
Their most defining feature is that they are the most mixed heiritage group of people we know of.

And i dont think you can get the universal truth by looking into the worst TES wiki there is.
i will quote the PG on Reach here:

"The Reachmen are a mongrel breed, even for Bretons. Descended originally from one of the earliest Atmoran tribes to settle Tamriel, their lineage now partakes of nearly every race imaginable"

So no. They arent just *bretons*
Yess they are bretons in the sense that they are descendants of the early humans that settled there. But they are not the Bretons as in the playable race of *the bretons*

More than any I kinda want to see how Markath's culture was back when the reachmen had it. Since their current armor most likely is from hunting the wild for pelts and such indeed but the design may very well have been influenced by their tribunal perceived religion. Also hope to see what these "old ones" are they worship or if it is just something minor like the 'deep one'(if I recall its name was) from oblivion which basically was just a stray storm atronach with a farmer as a worshiper.
Wouldn't complain though to see a bunch of men wandering around a stone-city like markath with those wild-fur pelt armors even though it has a strange mixed feel to it since it's kind of an odd blend...but seeing the men known to most as the barbaric forsworn in heavy armor would be equally strange to sight.

The new "Daggerfall: Ask us anything" states that the Reachmen won´t be a playable race and that Covenant and Pakt will have to deal with them in some point of the game.

well we knew already that they wont be a playable faction.
Also as for markarth. i doubt the reachmen have it. the nord held it for a long time (and when they didnt, the elves did) the reachmen only had it for a brief period of time before skyrim, nameley during the great war where they exploited the fact taht the Nords were marching to war with the elves and therfor there was no imperial legion to protect it.

And we wont see markarth anyway since its part of western skyrim wich rivals the part of skyrim that is allied with the pact.
