What's Different and What's Changed

I think there's been a lot of confusion from newcomers on the forums about what's different and what's changed between the old Elder Scrolls games and the Elder Scrolls Online, from people referencing the Thalmor and so on. I can't take time off before finals to make a comprehensive list, but maybe this can be a thread people can post in and I can make edits to the list as people contribute. For instance,

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Thalmor not established in same context as in the Great War
Dragonborn are extremely rare, and not exclusive to Nords or Skyrim (most affiliated with the Emperors)
The Companions are still existant


Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Most of the towns in Cyrodiil have been founded- Kvatch is still intact.
The Blades are in existence during this time.
The Septim Dynasty has not been founded yet.
The Fighters Guild, Mages Guild, Thieves Guild, and Dark Brotherhood have been founded

Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
The Tribunal has been established
The Great Houses are in place- however, think I noted that Telvanni has gone rogue due to the Argonian alliance
Dagoth Ur still is imprisoned in Red Mountain
The Morag Tong and the Dark Brotherhood are separate entities.

I'm not sure on some of these, but this is just to kind of start it off, can cross-reference this stuff later on.

too early for barenziah. As far as i know shes born in the last years of the second era.

Im a bit bewildered by the fact that you made this thread here.
The official forums need it alot more. So far we have not had that many inaccuricies about the lore occuring in statements on this forum.

Mirmulnir is last sighted in The Reach.

So Dragons are far from extinct. As M'aq the Liar says, they are just well hidden, or invisible, or fly really really high.

Dark Brotherhood exists, Morag Tong has been outlawed.

The next one with Dragonblood will be Talos, and those with Dragonblood rarely make appearance, so most likely we won't see an Dovahkiin during TESO events.

Blades have yet been founded.

Old "Morag Tong" killers joined Dark Brotherhood, since Dark Brotherhood have many small and secret bases in all locations of the country.

I want to visit Red Mountain and see if I can wake up Dagoth Ur :)

The Tribunal currently has the tools, and I wonder if you could ask them about them. Probably not though, because how would you know about them in-game?

That's true, but knowledge should be spread wherever it will take seed. :) Maybe copy this over, good idea too.

And you are right about Barenziah, all I remembered was reading that it was some time in the 2nd Era and being impressed how old she was. :)

I think the Blades were in existence, protecting the Reman emperors in the 2nd Era, they just weren't as strong as in the 3rd Era under the Septims. http://www.imperial-library.info/content...all-blades

But good input so far!
