I know it's a mountain city. But what kind of trees grow there? Does it snow there? What does the city itself look like? Is it just a city made of tents?

I expected it to be at least a bit more civilized. I guess not. While I'm talking to you, please except my apologies for my previous thread. I realized how naive and stupid I was being. But you have to understand I did not know that a thread like that already existed.

Dude why do you apologize? Seriously.

Its not a bad question. Asking to know something is not a bad thing.
Stating something false is.

I'm talking about my first thread on this forum.

dont remember that one.
Anyway.

i guess orsinum would be a bit more advanced. but not in terms of an actual city but more in the sense that several clans live there.
while each fortress is just dedicated to one tribe alone.
So yeah in that sense you could say its probably more advanced, better fortified and more sophisticated.

but dont expect an imperial style city.

Dammit. A big stronghohld? I hope its neat rather than a bunch of "gorrilas beating there chests." Play dice or save orsimer wenches, something cool.

According to this (not sure how reliable this is), Orsinium was razed to the ground in the first era. It won't be rebuilt until the third. So no Orsinium.

As in a stronghold there is only one chief allowed to have children I would assume that Orsinium "city" was a conglomerate of several tribes and clans who shared their city wall and defensive structures. I guess every clan was organized like in the strongholds in Skyrim. But all Orsinium... maybe it was ruled by a "round table" of either the tribal chiefs or the wise women.

Of course with so many people in one place one needs more detailed and elaborated laws than the codex of malacath to organize everyday life. Still I can´t think of Orsinium as civilized as a perhaps Nord city. There wouldn´t be beggars or rich merchant. Everyone would do menial work, like hunting or smithing, jobs more done with muscles than brain.

Everywhere I check its says Orsinium was razed to the ground in 1E980 and wasn't rebuilt until 3E399. Since ESO is set in 2E578, no Orsinium. Sorry guys.

and also they say Cyrod is a jungle.


that much for sources.

we'll just have to hope they give good excuses rather than ignoring the fact that they are conflicting with current lore
I believe they have said that the mainland being recorded as a jungle was a mistake

it is a pretty shitty phrase i know! but they have made mistakes in the books before. i remember reading one that regarded the deadric artifact Volendrung a sword! (the book is modern heretics if you wanted to know) and as we all (should) know Volendrung is a massive warhammer! and lore wise it is important that it is a hammer aswell i believe hammerfell is named after this artifact and was called Volenfell before it had its name changed. so that mistake even though small is a pretty dire one.

I for one prefer the mainland not being a jungle but i would like to know how they are going to explain the aldmeri dominion though

the jungle thing is important to the lore community.
its a place holder for all the things gone wrong.
