23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here
The Breton nightblade was not raised as a zombie he was undead from the beginningNotice in the first trailer how he seems to carelessly send the orc soldiers and just to check on the defenders response and then without a hint of disappointment goes into being a badass after the soldiers fall onto the chasm. Well here's my take on it he didn't care because they were all empowered by Breton magic remember this are the guys who brought you hagravens and forsworn in Skyrim I wouldn't be surprised of they were all liches from the beginning
TES Online does not take place in TamrielIt takes place in Coldharbour, which has already been said to be a cruel mirror of the real Tamriel, your characters and others just think they're in Dawn's Beauty rather than Molag Bal's Arena. It handily explains the oddities with the set-up, explains away the problems with the handwave justification for being able to come back and is perfectly in the Corruptor's perview.
The third cinematic trailer is going to be the Nord's show.During the last two cinematics there has been a segment where the sound aside from the music drops out and the focus character in question displays some truly awe inspiring combat feats that ends the serious fighting for that trailer. The first cinematic had the Breton McNinja single-handedly demolish an imperial garrison while the second had the Altmer spellsword obliterate some armored Dremora and destroy Molag Bal's chain gate unassisted. The third is going to feature the Nord trucking through a horde of undead like a superheated buzzsaw through paper mache and end with the zombie Breton getting beheaded.
The Bigger good is going to be The EbonarmOr at least there will be a reference to him, Sai or the Citadel.
The plot is another in-universe bookPutting together a coherent timeline of Tamriel is already difficult, thanks to the flexible standards of scholarship found in the books scattered through the games. If this game proves unpopular or is rife with continuity issues, Bethesda will simply declare it to be an in-universe work and therefore of debatable historical truth.
Lord Harkon will appearHe's a devout worshiper of Molag Bal and an immortal vampire. The timeline is also right for Serana to make a cameo, assuming the guess of her imprisonment being second era is correct.
If the game looks like it's going to fail, Zenimax will introduce Tiber Septim himselfIt would be a good way to draw more interest and possibly save the game. And if it doesn't work, they can instead end the game with Septim taking over.
Sheogorath will have a prominent role or at least more than a token appearanceThree reasons. First, with Molag Bal having a prominent role, more of the Princes are bound to be included; Second, he's pretty much the Ensemble Darkhorse of said Daedric Princes; and Third,cheese!
Boethiah and Mehrunes Dagon will be prominent Enemy Mine allies of the player characters.Boethiah hates Molag, and Dagon's driving motivation is the destruction of Nirn- he's not going to stand by and let Molag do it.
At some point, Molag Bal, the King of Rape, will hum Singing In The RainHe IS voiced by Alex DeLarge.
