Mistake in game

This is not a question but a mistake a noticed. I started my quests in EP and then went to coldharbour, only there I met Skordo the knife and Darien Gautier and as you all know Darien dies in the end of the questline in coldharbour. Then I proceed with DC quests and in glenumbra you meat darien who was supposed to be dead and I know you can say that Cadwell could have turned back time and restarted everything but thats not the case as you go on to rivenspire you meet darien again and this time you meet Skordo the knife. Then I was in Wrothgar and met Skordo again and he does recognise me and you can ask him how are things in rivenspire and somthing along the line how is he after the events in coldharbor indicating that he does remember coldharbor meaning cadwell couldnt have turned back time or smthing, he just could have spawned you in a different location in tamriel and if that isnt enough when you ask skordo that question he replies smthing along the lines ahhh poor darien do you remember him, indicating he remebers his death which makes a paradox because he is alive since you meet him in glenumbra and rivenspire

    From what I recall, there is no proof he dies.
    But, more importantly, all three faction storylines are pre-coldharbour. Its just a skip. From what can be understood, its more like you are living the events of the other factions differently. When the inital storyline was Cadwells it made a bit more sense

    Right. He just disappears. And there's a note you can pick up somewhere later (so probably in a DLC) where he asks for help getting out of the Colored Rooms. And you can bring this note to Gabrielle in the Mage's Guild somewhere to get some dialogue.

    The issue here is that technically every zone is in its own "time" and the entirety of ESOs Tamriel is not constantly in the same "time". Essentially the issue you are facing is one started by the time travel aspects that cadwell offers after coldharbour which was a design choice to explain how players can go into zones controlled by the other alliances after appearing to all 3 alliance leaders in the main story line as an ally to one of them.

    Essentially all the base game zones take place in a similar period of time while the dlc zones are either after those events (like wrothgar and DB) or before them (like Morrowind). There has been nothing from ZOS to explain why we can seemingly hop around through different times beyond the little talk with cadwell after the main questline in coldharbour.

    In the end it is a case of mechanics > lore
