Generally, the history of The Elder Scrolls games is twofold. On the one hand, there is always a political component, such as the civil war in which Skyrim was immersed in The Elder Scrolls V, and on the other, a magical or alien component, such as the reappearance of dragons in the same game. .
Knowing this, it would not be strange if the story of The Elder Scrolls VI followed a similar development . If we keep remembering the previous titles in the saga, we can think of several plots with enough importance to be part of the main story, so let’s review a little history.
The war between Hammerfell and the Aldmer Domain
The peace treaty known as the White and Gold Concordat and signed by the Empire to end the Great War against the Domain of Aldmer, included, among others, the clause that part of the territory of Hammerfell (Hammerfell) was surrendered. to the Thalmor.
Disagreeing with this condition, the citizens of Páramo del Martillo, home of the Red Guards, refused to give up part of their lands . In this way, Hammerfell became independent from the Empire to become a sovereign region.
With these precedents, and above taking into account that The Elder Scrolls VI could be located in Hammerfell according to the most recent rumors, Bethesda could place the plot around the conflict between Hammerfell and the Aldmer Domain over the territory. Or what is the same, a civil war could break out between the Red Guards and the Thalmor with us in the middle of all the mess.
The eternal fight against the Daedra
Oblivion is the plane (dimension parallel to Nirm, the earthly world) where the Daedra princes live , supernatural beings who frighten the population (although there are also those who worship them). The Daedra had a special role in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, where we had to prevent Nirm from being dragged to the Oblivion plane. But they have also appeared in other games like The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, in which we had to finish off the evil Dagoth-Ur.
Therefore, one of the main plots of TES VI could be a new battle against the Daedra , who never appear with good intentions.
The Quest for the Ancient Scrolls
Ancient Scrolls are the most mysterious items in The Elder Scrolls . They are known to show the future, as well as the present and the past. However, it is not known who wrote them, or how many there are, or where they are. In addition, in minds that do not have the ability to understand them and without the necessary technology, they can cause serious side effects such as blindness or insanity.
These documents could help the world end various problems . For example, the arrival of the dragon Alduin in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was predicted by an ancient Scroll, and it was thanks to that Scroll that we discovered the cry to defeat him (the famous Dragon Rip).
For this reason, the story of The Elder Scrolls VI could be focused on the search for one of those Scrolls .
These are just some of the plot threads on which the story of The Elder Scrolls VI could develop. But the truth is that TES is such a large, deep and rich universe that we could spend all day thinking about possible plots .
For now, we have to wait to learn more details about the story and other unknowns of The Elder Scrolls VI.
