I like the Argonians ._.
you and I are in the minority.
Not as much as those who are fans of Redguards, I suppose. But minority none the less.
I think if this were real, it would actually be called Black Marsh. Not only are fans more familiar with that name, it just sounds cooler. I mean, say it out loud. Black Marsh. How can that NOT sound imposing?
First off, it's a Marsh. That always sounds intimidating. There is no way to make Marsh not sound like an awful place of horror and death. Green Marsh. Rainbow Marsh. Kitten Marsh. You can't do it.
But this is the BLACK Marsh. That's a double dose of terror right there.

Yeah, when Talos Stormcrown got a bit of the way in and then went "Meh, this is far enough." you know it's bad.
Yeah, there's no way in hell this is real. And I'm not sure I'd want it to be. Odds are Bethesda would fuck it up and manage to make Black Marsh the most boring generic fantasy world possible. How? No idea. But they'd do it.
@Tobias: Dat is so racist
Redguards got a spin off at least(with its own little comic). Hammerfell has deserts and its own mythos/history which is actually pretty fleshed out. I wouldn't mind a game there either but I'd rather have a non-human region this time since we got two of them in a row and black marsh remains one of the most mysterious regions in the ES games. We kind of know a bit about Hammerfell and High rock is the least interesting region in the series since Bretons are boring minus the forsworn.
I like Argonians. The races that I practically never pick are Imperials, Nord, Bretons and Redguards. Humans are boring.
kinda a shame they have so little relevence on an international politics scale, but i do find their brand of quirkiness interesting, going off what was posted in the skyrim thread a few days ago.
I love the Argonians.
Always play as one. In a weirdly meta way, my Argonian was trying desperately to be a "Shadowscale" in Skyrim, despite not, apparently, having been born in the Marsh (Well, he was. And under the right sign dammit!)
Also, poison resistance and breathing underwater... lifesavers!
Admittedly in Oblivion, you could find that helmet that had water breathing as an enchantment, which was rather cool, which was standard wear for my non Argonian characters.
I wonder if the next instalment, we'll just have more Fallout-stylings, with them just going for "suits".
I hope the new DA: I shows that there's still an interst in segregated armour sets. Though I miss the greaves slot.
Doubt this will be true, they'll probably go for the Summerset isles, during an invasion by the Empire or something...
I'm a bit skeptical on whether they'd go for the Isles, since that would require the Dominion to be on the brink of defeat already by the time the game starts.
Perhaps they could do a game that includes both Valenwood and Summerset Isle, with the latter only becoming easily accessible as the story progresses.
valenwood for the main game, the main quest involves liberating the bosmer from the dominion and driving the thalmor back.
the expansions involve going to sommerset to finally deal with the dominion.
I do hope the end of the war isn't dealt with in an expansion pack.
You poor, poor man.
Also the threads only two pages long dude you couldn't read just a few posts to make sure someone else didn't make that joke already?
If you're referring to my post: nobody had, so I'm not sure what you're complaining about.
(If you're not, then I'm not sure what you're referring to.)
im pretty sure hog was quoting tobias, but didnt quoteblock or put quotes around it so silently honest assumed hog was making the joke himself.
The quoteblock function is currently broken due to the new site layout, so we're gonna need to manually edit our posts so that quotes are easier to recognize for the time being.
I wouldn't mind Black Marsh as a setting, though like most of you I highly doubt this rumour is true.
I'm still holding out hope that Hammerfell is going to be the next setting. Arabian-nights style fantasy? Desert environments with survival aspects? CURVED SWORDS??
Yes, yes and yes.
But I won't hold my breath: the community has made it clear that we are in the minority -___-
They won't want to alienate the fanbase that identifies with Fantasy Romans or Fantasy Vikings.
Can't see Fantasy African / Persians taking off sadly. Or Fantasy Aztec / Arabian / mongol / aboriginal cat people.
Nope, we'll be stuck with a nicely marketable idetifiable elf at best, or another Breton / Viking / Roman. They may go for a High Rock setting, so they can do their own version of Orlais, with more courtly intruigue (Which would be good if they actually made use of skills that weren't combat / smithing / stealth related)
People loved Shivering Isles and Morrowind, so I'm not sure going to someplace less Fantasy Europe is that big an issue. If they made it, I could see Hammerfell doing well.
Yeah, there is a quoteblock tag around the quoted post - it's just they don't presently work. For instance:
Give it a few days, I'm sure it'll be indented appropriately soon enough.
Also, didn't notice Hammerfell was a desert region also; I'd associated that with Elsweyr. Fascinating.

I agree. But the important word is "if".
As a gamer I feel that the game would be successful. But it's likely that marketing analysts will disagree.

How well did Dragonborn do? It banked on Morrowind nostalgia pretty hard, and, as mentioned, Morrowind wasn't exactly a standard medieval European fantasy.
Will I be able to play as a Shadow Scale? I like Shadow Scales.
