Like the Pro-Registration and Pro-Freedom factions in Marvel during that whole fiasco disregarded a third "Y'all gonna be sorry when Hulk comes back" faction, I sit and watch the Ebonheart, Daggerfall, and Aldmeri factions and join the "Y'all gonna be sorry when Tiber Septim comes around" faction.

I love all the symboly kind of things in this picture. The ground cracked with fire, the sky opening up, chains raining down, and how the three combatants are shackled together. It's all great!!

I love it, a definite favorite to be added to my list. Also as a side note to you and all other viewers, I hope to start a guild in the elder scrolls online composed of solely khajiits if anyone is interested. Oh and sorry you were not allowed to submit this into the contest, I'm sure it would have been a top ranking piece.

Kind of bull that Khajiit are bad guys...The Altimer should of had Zero allies...seriusly screw The Aldmeri Dominion, let it all rot in The Void. Elsweyr and Argonia forever!

but this is the first aldmeri dominion, then after the war it was ended. The jerk altmer (and some bosmer) in the future banded together again for the second dominion because they couldn't tolerate the other races  any more for some stupid reason. This alliance is just a means to control Tamriel, and the other alliances had problems too. The nords, dark elves, and argonians were enemies but became friends (well that didn't last long) and the bretons and redguards fought + orcs were their slaves. You mean to screw the dominion in skyrim, the dominion here is better. And the Khajiit joined the dominion because the Khajiit also idolized themselves too (they are cats after all).

I know how it is in ESO now, the Dominion are not the bad guy is in it, Valenwood benifited from it fairly well, and as far as I could tell Elsweyr did not do half bad either, so yeah I'd choose that alliance. Better that the Ebonheart pact, since what...Argonians were still being inslaved by the dunmer at that time if i am not mistaken, that alliance makes little sense to me at all. Infact the only alliance that makes sense is The Aldmeri Dominion, that is the only one that makes sense to me.

in the lore, the akaviri (blades) came from the far east and attacked black marsh, morrowind, and skyrim. After years of attacks from the akaviri, the three provinces banded together to make a pact (the ebonheart pact) to stop fighting and put an end to the akaviri. Apparently the interregnum came and the ruby throne was empty, so the pact decided to fight for the throne together. When they made the pact, the dunmer freed argonian slaves, and the three races actually got along. When the akaviri stopped attacking and the interregnum ended, the three races once again drifted back into hatred. I feel sad for the argonians, being freed, gaining new friends, then being enslaved once again by their dunmer friends. The elves are jerks: The falmer were paranoid of the atmorans(nords) and then tried to drive them away but failed; The dwemer lived underground and tricked the falmer into becoming slaves; The chimer/dunmer broke away from the altmer because the chimer/dunmer thought they were better. Then the chimer/dunmer went to morrowind and found the dwemer then they fought for land; The altmer thinks highly of themselves and closed off the summerset isles to every race but altmer (though members of the aldmeri dominion are welcomed); The wood elves are actually pretty barbaric, they enslaved khajiits, but then..... just like the argonians. Actually now that I think about it, the orcs were slaves to redguards, the argonians were slaves to the dunmer, and the khajiit were slaves to the wood elves. All three alliances were pretty much banded together only to drift apart again, now that's pretty sad. I hope they all make more sense now :)

Any race that'd enslave khajiit and argonians deserve to be brutally slaughtered, and knowing that....I don't feel bad for the Bosmer being systimatically slaughtered by the current Aldmeri Dominion at all now, actually kind support it now that i think about it. Khajiit and Argonians should band together, no telling what they could achieve, both are good at using small groups to do large amounts of damage then slipping away. Also I'd not be surprised in the Argonians eventually over took Morrowind, I personally hope they do, then it'll be onto Solstheim. as for the Khajiit...about damn time they got Elsweyr back...damn you Bethesda...when ever a race is getting fucked with it's always the same ones...give them a break already! Pick on someone else...like..hmmmm  the Imperials? Tjhey have not had it enough I don't think.

I agree that the beast races should've banded together, but the khajiit are so full of themselves (they're cats after all). The imperials have had enough of their own blood spilled though, I don't agree that they should get any more picked on then they are already. Think about it, the imperials are always dying. In ESO, they are all on their own. No alliance would take them because their emperor is brainwashed by molag bal. Then in oblivion, the imperials get slaughtered by mehrunes dagon (which attacked the imperial city). The after oblivion (but before skyrim), the second aldmeri dominion attacks and slaughtered many more imperials in cyrodiil. Then nords get angry and rebels against the imperials. The dunmer hates the imperials because imperials took over morrowind and almost took away their traditions. The elves of all kinds always have a hatred for imperials. Actually all races has something against imperials (imperials do control tamriel; summerset isles doesn't count since it's an island). Actually, the human races are the least brutal races of all. Elves are the ones that cause a lot of trouble, they always think the elf way is better. Just pick on the elves, except dunmer since they got their asses kicked by the argonians and into skyrim and cyrodiil. The dunmer's home was mostly destroyed (vvardenfell) and then the dunmer's pride was technically destroyed by the nord's racism against elves (because of the great war). But the beast races aren't at all innocent as it seems. Argonian's hist fighting style makes them not know the difference of friend or foe and khajiits are naturally rogues and theives. Every race needs some type of destruction for eachother. And also the bosmer are a part of the second aldmeri dominion. The hist is evil but it's damn effective; when the oblivion gates from mehrunes dagon came in black marsh, the daedra didn't flood out, the argonians flooded in! Argonians were feeling powerful then, so they flooded into morrowind too. Too bad the nords were too much fore the argonians, so the argonians retreated to control black marsh and morrowind.

Nords? House Redoran repelled the Argonians, and there are still Argonians in morrowind and they still hold parts of the the southern half of morrowind as far as I know, and they still run raids in morrowind in the province and out of Black Marsh so clearly they are not done yet. The nords are fine, nothing really against them. The Imperials have a broader sense, however they can't seem to see past the ends of their noses sometimes, General Tullius is a fine example, good man but short sighted, much like Ulfric, who if he pulled his head out his ass he'd be a good leader and could dave done good for Skyrim instead of being such a prick. Certain Bosmer like tbhose joined wit the aldmeri can bite it along with the second Aldmeri Dominion as far as I see it. The Dunmer I like them but what the Argonians gave them and are still giving them they deserved every bit of it. Generally i find Altimer to be good people, it's the second Aldmeri Dominion currently that's the issue. The Orcs? Can't say a damn thing against them, great warriors proud people, I'd be proud to bloodkin to the orc's and would love to learn their ways, same as i'd love to learn the ways of The Skaal, both are good noble just people. Personally I think Argonian Khajiit and Orsimer (sp?) could of been a great alliance three races with one thing in common all have been victims of slavery. However the lore of ESO makes sense now that i know how it all works. makes perfect sense to me actually. Over all I do not hate any of the races, just certain groups in certain races I dislike, though i find it hard to hate on Argonians or Khajiit for any reason.

Of course the orcs, khajiit, and argonians would make a great team. They all are the ideal team, orcs are strength, argonians are speed and strength, and khajiits are speed. The have magic too, well everyone has a magic. The only reason why they are not an alliance is because the races wanted to be freed, and in turn play a part in the war. I like playing as dunmer for their magical abilities and their warrior capabilities; also the imperial race because imperials are pretty all-around in fighting. I can't hate the beast races and orsimer because they are oppressed by another race, but I know they don't like outsiders unless they prove themselves. Argonians can literally smell outsiders (example is in morrowind) and orcs don't allow outsiders within their walls (unless you become blood-kin). The argonians are not done, but they clearly outmatched the dark elves this time. Argonians might not even raid solstheim because solstheim is controlled by dunmer and nords. And nords are natural warriors (if they can repel the snow elves, they can repel the argonians; though it remains to be seen if argonians attack skyrim too). I just believe it to be sad that the three races went back to being slaves, though most orcs stayed in orsinium. I love how in the skyrim civil war (imperial or stormcloak), the imperials show that the elves are to blame and not the imperial's fault. It's possible that the second elven great war might be the basis of the sixth game of the series (ESO is it's own part and not a part of the saga). But it's only possible, the race that still needs to be taken down a peg is the altmer of the second aldmeri dominion. I'm not a master of the lore, though I am very familiar with everything that is going on. Maybe bethesda would just skip the war again and do something more epic than a war. :)

Я сегодня зешел на их страничку, куда участники выкладывают постеры и впал в отчаяние, мне даже стало жалко Зени, которые собирались три победных постера где-то у себя экпонировать. Но это просто охрененный эпик, как в плане исполнения, так и в плане содержания. Жаль, что они охватили так мало стран, им же бы достались работы, которые не стыдно показать на конвенциях. Там есть работы, нарисованные умело, но такой крутой концепции в них нет. Явно заслуживает интуос :)
