Society of Scholars: A Social Guild for TES Lore Fans + Helping people do dungeon quests for story

Robo_Hobo

There's plenty of guilds for doing dungeons fast, but what about if you just want to do one slowly so you can read and listen to all of the quest dialogue, maybe even explore around it a bit? What if you want to talk about all of the many quests and stories ESO has to offer, or even from the rest of the Elder Scrolls franchise? There aren't many guilds that advertise a focus on these things, and I think it's about time there is.

We're the Society of Scholars, just some people who love talking about the lore of TES, and doing group quests together if we can't do them alone.

Whether you're new to the game or a long-time veteran, a loremaster or only just starting to learn, low level or high, online every day or maybe even only when new DLC comes out, if you like what we're about, you're welcome among us in our endeavor to achieve CHIM.

I'm @Robo_Hobo in-game, sometimes known as AedricDaedra elsewhere. I enjoy a quick dungeon as much as the next person, and I love overcoming difficult challenges too, but I also love the storytelling of this game and the rest of the series, and to relax and explore and take in the world and enjoy it to the fullest. Group dungeon quests are never usually the deepest in their storytelling compared to the rest of the game's quests, but I still feel those that want the chance to experience them without rushing them should have that chance to do so, and I'm willing to take the time of day to help those who do want it, through the dungeons, and let them take as long as they like - even if I've done that dungeon 100 times already. It's my hope that others who join this guild will also share that same willingness to help others - and to enjoy talking about the lore of this expansive world we play in, of course.

If you'd like to join our cult guild, either message down below, leave me a PM in-game or on the forums with your in-game username!

    I like your idea of this sort of guild. I also really really want to experience dungeons without being rushed. It's the main reason why I haven't done too many of them yet.

    I'm glad you like the idea behind it! Yeah, once we get enough people for it we can definitely start offering to help you and others to get a chance to experience group dungeons at a relaxed pace for the quests.

    What's your in-game name? I'll send you an invite. :)

    New dungeons, new quests. Let us know if you want to do the new Wolfhunter dungeons with us as your first playthrough, to take it slow and explore before doing your regular runs for gear and achievements!

    @Robo_Hobo: I'm.... not a big guild joiner. Mostly, I don't have much to offer guilds - too much lag (couple seconds usually) to do much with groups, I wouldn't ask a group to put up with that kind of lag! But your guild does sound interesting - I have some knowledge of the lore background, though in general I've been too busy playing the games to keep on top of the lore. I've played every ES game beginning with Arena when it released.

    I wouldn't ask any of you to mess with my lag for dungeons for sure, but for convos about the games and lore, well, yes, I'd be interested.

    It's awesome that you've been a fan of TES from Arena! I've only started with Oblivion and played back as far as Morrowind myself.

    We'd definitely love to have you, lag and all, in our conversations and our dungeons. Our story mode runs are specifically to help people who otherwise normally don't get the chance to do the dungeons, to be able to experience them, and the quests in them. They're a very relaxed pace. :)

    We just did Banished Cells 1 the other day listening to all of the dialogue, reading every scrap of literature in the dungeon (which revealed new insights behind the quest there that I never had the chance to do before starting this guild), and even translating the Daedric words on the walls in some parts of the dungeon. (Although they usually just turned out to spell Molag Bal, he really likes having his name written everywhere lol)

    And I definitely understand being too busy playing the game to catch up on all of the lore always. TES has a lot of it, and I love learning about it as well as playing the games. I like to see it as: Always having something new to learn.

    I'll send you an invite when I get home later today :)

    I really want to do dungeons but not be rushed through them. I have a lot of lowbies and 2 vets but I have done maybe 2 dungeons. BTW, I've been in the game since beta but all my friends left the game. I'm CP324. My vets are DK but she's not a tank and a nightblade that only uses bow and dual daggers, no other skills. I wanted one non magic character.

    Hehe, yes we do accept them. We don't discriminate between diseases and criminal records :P

    After all, sometimes you need to be able to live long enough to learn everything, and Vampirism is a means to attain that...and how else to learn and document all information about a secret cult of assassins, than to join them directly? ;)

    Hi Robo
    This is a wonderful idea for a guild! I've been playing the TES games since Arena and the smaller stories behind the scenes have always been one of my favourite parts of the lore. You sort of get used to being able to see and do everything in those solo games but since joining ESO i think I've only been able to really enjoy the experience of a dungeon once in about a dozen runs! I'm in South Africa and so my hours ingame end up being a little different to most folks in the US but I'd still love to join your guild. My main is a Redguard Stamblade around 280 cp and my id is @Almyria. Hope to hear from you soon!

    This is exactly the kind of guild I was looking for! I am new to ESO but a longtime TES fan, since Daggerfall I would say, though Morrowind was my true love growing up!

    If you don't mind a newbie like myself I would love to join. :blush:

    Hi,

    In game name is @Jazdia. I'm primarily on the EU server, but I've started a char on the NA server so I can stop and enjoy the game a bit more without all the rush of my 'primary' server.

    If you think I'll fit, please invite me.
