Good point, but perhaps Bethesda will mention an argonian emperor in TES VI or something?

Well as this point in time in ESO's history is somewhat forgivable, anyone will have the capacity to become emperor technically. In all reality and in regards to the lore, such an event would never happen as Argonians hold no power or influence in Tamriel. They would literally have to lead a successful rebellion defeating all opponents and claiming the white-gold tower as their own. The fact that the empire has been historically dominated by men makes it even less likely. I'm just curious how long a person can retain ownership of the throne and how many emperors we will go through in the game's existence.

Though, in fairness, that article referenced begins with ol' Tiber, and that's still a few centuries away from ESO.

The most important thing to remember is that this is a time of all out war. There would have been countless people that assumed the throne, but it would have only been for a few weeks at most.

thats right, who the emporer was and what he did was not of any importance, its not realy much of a political status anyway. i doubt people would ever accept these new emporers, its just not like they got a choice with all the troops of the respective faction beeing parked inside their walls (and all their enemies battering them from the outside)

I'm assuming that he's referring to the Interregnum. The reason for the lack of political significance is that the current "history books" haven't mentioned it, the assumption being that they changed so rapidly. Thinking about it, I would be very amused if one particular player/group held the title for a significantly extended period.

Yes, that would be amusing indeed. It would be awesome if you always knew who the emperor was.

In the end, something will happen that erases history. We might save Nirn, but no matter how hard we try, noone's going to write history nor will be remembered by it. Otherwise, we would have read something about this era already, wouldn't we?

So, there's probably gonna be a nice event when they finally pull the plug explaining why all our deeds remain unnoticed. Otherwise they would have a whole lot of explaining to do and way too many opportunities to mess up accidentally. Just think of a decade of player driven events influencing lore that already has been written.

Maybe they connect a few things, but I don't expect that to be many, but rather few and well selected events and the influence of the MMO on future SP titles be as small as possible, unless set in the same era. To all others, almost nothing is known about it yet or never will be.

So anything goes, after all, it didn't happen, really.

If our group have successfully to replace from old emperor, so it can happen to choose a two-part family bloodline of empire. Who knows, reason we knew history until E4 201. mhm... But our group can get a high reward and possible support in a period, until a new enemy group want new emperor.

It is also a big empire, so hard to control. Nah, for a high work to control, heh...

While it is true that Emperor "Pwnsauce McJoy" will never make the history books and never likely appear in future TES games as a reference, I wouldn't dismiss the potential this game has to influence the future of the franchise.

Just because there was no history before doesn't mean that even once this game releases that this period will continue to just be a dead spot in the lore. It's actually very possible that ZOS and BGS will use this as a medium to actually expand and further connect the lore together, potentially even explaining future events that haven't come to pass yet.

Really anything is possible since so little is known about this time period and ZOS and BGS can really take advantage of this opportunity how they'd like. Who knows what great things could come out of this game's development for the lore.

Oh, I'm definitely looking forward to participate in such events. But I just expect them to be few and far between, as they have to be really well thought through.

The whole background story for the game is a really big event and it's quite interesting how it happened that noone has ever heard of it before. There needs to be an explanation for it. So either re-write history or bring up an event that shrouds this era in darkness and mystery again. The first might be more interesting, but is extremely risky, while the latter is logical in itself and easier to write.

I think as an Emperor you should have some perks, for yourself and your faction. Otherwise it aint special being the "emperor", its just another for nr. 1 on the Killboards. People should be refering to him etc.

For an example when i used to play WoW, I'd organise a "For The Alliance!" in the weekend if I wasn't going out that evening/night.
To people who aren't familiar to it, it's where a faction raids the other factions main cities and kills of the leaders/kings/queens of the faction. I always succeeded and used to have great after-battles in the middle of Orgrimmar, with banners of the Alliance and shit, it was awesome :p.

Anyway after some time I was known as the great Alliance-raid leader, I was known across the server for it. Lol, or my character was.

We need to have someone who we can refer to as a leader or a group of Warlords (guildmasters) that fight for this throne toghether in our factions. Like if a nobody pops up out of nowwhere. a "Pwnsauce McJoy", than what kind of title is "The Emperor Of Tamriel"?
