How much of it will be explorable because from what i see it is only the northern parts of Black Marsh that will be explorable at least at launch. Tell me what you think guys

Yeah the north western part will be available at launch for sure
There might be more, but i think thats all well be getting at launch

I do know for sure that it wont be playable in full sadly
There are more that wont be playable in full at launch, but i think either blackmarsh, or the summerset isles will have the smallest part availabke of all provinces

I think high rock, hamerfell, valenwood, amd cyrodiil might be available in full at launch, but thats only because i havent heard them say anything about the size of those provinces yet

The main reason they don't have the playable yet is that they're reserving those areas for expansions. If much of Black Marsh isn't playable at launch, that means that a lot of expansion-y stuff will be for Black Marsh, meaning players who prefer that area will get more than others down the road to keep playing. Don't necessarily think of it as a bad thing!

True I wonder how they will do it since the only inhabitants to go deep into Black marsh are the Argonians and Hist so will that place be Argonian only or what?

It would be cool if it was Argonian only. Realistic too.

I think there will be a few lost travelers of other races in blackmarsh, at least near the border towns
But it would make sence that there would be less the deeper you go into black marsh

Sadly only stormhold has been confirmed so far, which borders morrowind, and is pretty close to cyrodiil aswell
So it doesnt tell us much about the size of how much will be available
I am hoping for them to include at least the border areas near morrowind and cyrodiil at launch
An area about the size of soltsheim wont do it for me here, and im hoping more cities will be available

But yes, there will be the opertunity for a big expantion for black marsh

Agreed. Or at the very least make survivabilty for other races in the inner parts of Black Marsh EXTREMELY low.

I don't think that there will be major restrictions for other PC races in Black Marsh, it would be very unusual for a MMO.

It would make sense though, as the Knahaten Flu killed non-argonian races off in Black Marsh at the time of TESO.

I guess there will be none or very few non-argonian NPC's in deeper Black Marsh regions, but as a non-argonian PC you will probably be able to do something about the Knahaten Flu.

afaik there's not much known about the details of the disease, so there should be enough room for the developers to think of a plausible reason allowing non-argonian PC's to travel there.

True but there are also tons of other diseases and poisonous plants that only the Argonians manage to survive.

This mirrors my thoughts exactly

Yes and maybe some under areas like some dungeons that only Argonians can get to?

Personally, I really don't think ZOS should limit where someone can go purely because they're not X race (factions notwithstanding). I can understand the want to have your chosen race be that much more special, but it would really piss off players of all the other races to go "Hey guys, EP gets this area in Black Marsh to explore. But only for Agonians. Everyone else is SoL".
