Black Marsh background

Argonians are one of the eight playable races in Daggerfall.

The strange reptilian people of Black Marsh seem equally comfortable in the water - surely no other race of Tamriel can swim faster or for longer than Argonians. An intelligent, quick-footed, and agile people, Argonians often train in magery and thievery.

Character Creation[edit]

Argonian male PC

"Argonians hail from the province of Black Marsh. You are part of a highly-evolved race of reptiles, known for their intelligence, agility, and speed. Because of their reptilian nature, Argonians do not tire easily when swimming. While many Argonians have successfully mastered the arts of thievery and spellcasting, there are some regarded well as warriors."
