So I have always wondered about this so just curious how others feel on the subject. The elder scrolls is so deep and has so much story and lore available and they have consistently created stories with in tamriel. What about the other lands excluding Yokuda and Aldmeris one which is destroyed and the other which might never have existed depending on which scholars you ask. I just wonder why have they stayed away from akavir and other places and how many of you like me wish they would explore some place like thras or the other continents and their countries so we can finally learn more about the true nature of the world?

Honestly it would be cool to explore Akavir, though it isnt a very logical or smart move for bethesda to make. First things first of the majority of people who play the Elder Scrolls how many people do you think have heard of Akavir. Most of these people have just picked up the game knowing it was good and never looked into the lore they would not know what was happening, which leads me to my second point of the people who have played skyrim, they know about, you know the seperate areas of tamriel and of the different races and the different city. We do not know much about Akavir at all. They would have to create a Shit TON of more lore, like almost equivelent to the amount the Tamriel has already. It isnt efficient to lead lore disabled people who are the majority of the audience of Skyrim into Akavir.

Some bonus' though: Akavir is inhabited by dragons or dragon like people and that is where the dragons came from (CITATION NEEDED[Looking at you Sordak]) so with this in mind Skyrim player are familiar with these airborne monstrousities so they can relate to each game. Most people who are heavily into ES and its lore will find it exciting/cool. It'll give us a chance to explore more.

Over all it's unlikely, and will probably be once they have run out of provinces (If they run out of provinces). So I wouldnt hold your breath, cause you'll die

we discussed this matter yesterday.

Akavir, according to some accounts, is indeed where the dragons come from.
Keep in mind that this might be just historical inacurracies or a matter of name.

Aka = Akavir , Aka = Aka-tusk

As for people trying to be dragons. Well, the Ka po tun. But this might be symbolical.
Tosh Raka might have tried (succeedet?) to mantle Akatosh.

As for Akavir appearing: Please no Mists of Akavir. the best part about akavir is the fact that it is misterious.
Not a fan of actually going there. And if ever. Let Bethesda handle it. Not some paid upstarts like ZOS.

Yea I know we talked a abit about it just wanted to post and see how people around the site feel about it. I do agree its nice to have the mystery about akavir but at the same time I guess I been playing since morrowind and even went back and played daggerfall and it just makes you want to know more it makes you want to explore but I am also a very curious person if there is something to see experience or learn I want to. Of course I know what akavir means and that the symbol of the septim empire infact is derived from the akaviri people and I would agree that the MMO might not honestly be a place to explore any of these regions but it would be nice if at some point they were. There is still Thras and Pynadonea not even including other small island kingdoms which Uriel V has conquered once before. The whole thing is I don't honestly think they would have to come up with an equal amount of lore considering most of the theological stuff and metaphysics has already been handles though it would be remarkably substantial amount of work. I think even non lore focuses fans might like the change of scenery. You are right though in the end it is about playing it safe. The main reason I mention it is cause it seems like bethesda may have something planned with all three of the main places that I mentioned going mysteriously quiet for the past in one case 30 years and in others centuries so what does it mean ya know?

I totally agree with you 100% i dont think that they should really have to expand on the lore, its already there and doesnt need to be equal. im kinda hyped about the mystery of the akavir. It just adds a level to the game in that you dont know everything, which i love.I dont want to be able to know everything the game has to offer, it will keep me entertained. And im excited to see if there expansions bring in the unmentioned islands such as Thras and Pynadone.
