* SeriousBusiness: In [[GameMod modding]] scene, [[StopHavingFunGuys some people]] treat lore accuracy in mods as this. If they encounter a mod that does not fit into the style of the gameworld and established lore, like for example anime or Star Wars based mods, they will surely post a comment to let everyone know how this mod is complete trash and an offense to the entire Elder Scrolls franchise. Instead of, you know, simply choosing not to use the mod and moving on to mods they do like.

** Ysgramor created the earliest empire of men in Tamriel, after he and his 500 companions traveled to Skyrim from Atmora. They slaughtered the native Falmer and expanded into High Rock and Morrowind at the height of the empire.

** Reman I Cyrodiil founded the Reman empire, the second great empire of men out of Cyrodiil. (There is some debate as to whether the province was named after him, or if he took the name of the province.) He was the first to be recognized as a "Dragonborn" emperor and his empire conquered most of Tamriel, failing only to conquer the Altmer (protected by their powerful magicks) and the Dunmer (protected by their [[PhysicalGod Physical Gods]].

Added DiffLines:

* EthnicGod: Many of the races worship many of the same gods, but they manifest as different aspects. For instance, Stendarr is known as the god of mercy in the Imperial and Aldmeri pantheons, but his Old Nordic aspect Stuhn can be better understood as the god of ransom.

Added DiffLines:

* FuturePrimitive: The Falmer have degenerated from graceful snow elves into a race of blind, subterranean Morlock-like beasts with a primitive, xenophobic tribal culture. Possibly it has something to do with the dwarves, who forced them to blind themselves with poison in exchange for saving their race from genocide, used them as servants and slaves, and may have performed experiments on them that caused them to mutate into their present form.

** Ysgramor created the earliest empire of men in Tamriel, after he and his 500 companions traveled to Skyrim from Atmora. They slaughtered the native Falmer and expanded into High Rock and Morrowind at the height of the empire.
** St. Alessia, the "Slave Queen," led an uprising against the native elves and created the Alessian Empire, the first empire of men out of Cyrodiil.
** Reman I Cyrodiil founded the Reman empire, the second great empire of men out of Cyrodiil. (There is some debate as to whether the province was named after him, or if he took the name of the province.)

** Tiber Septim founded the third empire out of Cyrodiil, and became the first to conquer all of Tamriel. He ascended to godhood after his death, becoming Talos, the ninth divine.
** Lord Indoril Nerevar is treated as this by the Dunmer people as the great unificator of Morrowind. The [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]] rule in his name ([[TheRashomon even though they very likely may be responsible for his death]]) and he is revered as a saint in the Tribunal Temple.

* FictionalCurrency: Gold coins referred to as "Septims" are the main currency of Tamriel.


Added DiffLines:

* FinalSolution: The Nords toward the Falmer in Skyrim and Solstheim. The Falmer once had a civilization to rival the Altmer, but the Nords crossing over from Atmora slaughtered them. The survivors were taken in by the Dwemer, who proceeded to twist them into blind, goblin-like creatures.

Added DiffLines:

* FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence: This is one of the primary motivations of the Thalmor. They play the Altmer belief that the creation of the mortal world was a cruel trick that robbed the Elves of their pre-creation divinity UpToEleven. They believe that, not merely ''existence'' of mankind, but the existence of the ''possibility of mankind'', keeps the elves trapped in the mortal world, which explains why they can't accept the ascension of Talos, a mortal man, into the ranks of the Divines, and why they want his worship stamped out at all costs. (And according some lore sources, this belief isn't entirely incorrect...)

** The Nords may also count, if not for the fact that they're less ProudWarriorRace and more ''Drunken'' Warrior Race.
*** The Nords of Skyrim will actually ridicule [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect most magic users]].

* NoobCave: Each main series game either starts the player out in one, or has one accessible shortly after character creation. Usually, it includes a tutorial and give the player his/her first set of equipment.
** Morrowind subverts this, as there is no tutorial dungeon, though there is a cave close by the starting town where you can practice fighting and such, but it is completely optional.
