Letters Mailed Teasing Upcoming Elder Scrolls Online Content — January 16, 2022
Letters have been sent to some prominent members of the Elder Scrolls Online community with hints at the upcoming adventures for 2022. The letter begins with a foreword that reads:
- Adventurer, we seized this letter and medallion as its courier journeyed through Glenumbra. Investigate this organization, uncover their goals, and report back to me. You can name your price.
- Lady Arabelle Davaux
After which, it continues on with the previously mentioned seized letter.
- Our knights obtained this medallion during a raid on a secret Mages Guild workshop. Study it. Protect it. Its purpose will play a vital role in the Ascendant Order's plans. Find the mage who created it and send our knights to secure the master template. Remember, we cannot ascend until we meet our overarching goals. The secret of these medallions is the key to our success and the salvation of Tamriel.
- Do not fail me.
- Your Lord
The letter then ends with a sigil of a fist seizing a broken crown, in lieu of the name of the lord in question. The letter also arrived with a small bag, and a coin. The bag had the Alliance War Ouroboros on one of its sides, but had no significant details beyond that. One side of the coin featured a sailing ship, while the other side of the coin seemingly features a symbol of Stendarr with the colors of the Alliance War factions in front of the Alessian Empire emblem. As more information becomes available, we will keep you informed.
