So I've been wondering for quite some time now about the ruins found in Argonia (Shadowfen to be exact) They are clearly based on Mayan/Aztec cultures and are clearly made by or for the argonians. However, why are they ruins? Why not continue to build and maintain the massive structures? Have the Argonians given up on building grand temples for a simpler lifestyle or is there some other reason such as the impact of outsiders? Tell me what you think on this matter.

Doing some of the quests in these ruins, reveals they are not necessarily argonian.
To me it seems like something that pre-dates argonians.

I could be incredibly wrong, but the Argonians were made by the hist to protect and serve it.
So potentially whatever made those ruins was wiped out by the Argonians.

Which may have been one of the many races that once lived there, but are now extinct.

Really could use a lore wizard to reveal their secrets. As I also would love to know who made this ruins.

I had that thought as well however to me it seems strange that the ruins involve a lot of what seems like depictions of argonians. Also the ruins have patterns and symbols that are seen in some form on argonian weapons and armour. Perhaps an older civilisation of argonians existed which collapsed to leave behind a tribal society. Or perhaps the ruins were made for the argonians. This is a mystery I would like to solve.

Well it turns out that the ruins ARE of argonian make and from a time before they decided to all live in mud huts. But the question still stands: why did they leave the Xanmeers?

Maybe there was something darker at work in those ruins.
Or perhas the hist made them abandon those ancient structures.
Argonian lore is a very strange and mysterious subject.


He is in death as he was in life : rather screwed.

Theres more than one type of argonian so it could have been one of theirs.
