A Tamriel Story

Giggles-at-Miscreants staggered across the marsh. She was half starved, not having eaten in days, and parched regardless of the marsh-water lying stagnant for miles in every direction.

At least, once it comes back up, since after about 8 hours of downloading, now it’s closed for maintenance, oh well! In any case, it’s covered in NDAs so if I want to be able to play for real when it goes live then I won’t be able to say much – not even post screenshots (I assume because they don’t want the UI out in the wild), though I could point to what they have published on the website – but I’ll say what I can, even if it is vague.
