Murkmire DLC experience:
Hello dear friends of the ESO & ZeniMax staff!
I just wanted to wish all of you guys a happy Halloween and I also wanted to thank you for the wonderful Murkmire DLC (which I love so very much). Thanks for all the great work on ESO in general, for the friendly support (Gina & Jessica), the ongoing new content and for all the energy and love you put into the game.
As for Murkmire:
Lawrence Schick (ESO’s Lead Loremaster) & Leamon Tuttle (Senior Writer-Designer) + all the involved people behind the latest DLC created something very special with Murkmire. They are telling a detailed, epic tale in an caring and empathic way based on Argonian history. The quest themes are in many ways connected to some of the problems mankind faces these days. The new DLC covers many issues of our real life in 2018 (how we treat, communicate & interact with indigenous people, nature and our planet in general, or how we treat and work with "handicapped" people [see the "Empty Nest" quest]. How we treat each other in general as human beings).
I have to admit and I am not ashamed of, that I shed some tears while playing the new Murkmire quests (main story and side quests like "Empty Nest" really touched my heart and are fantastic). The new Argonian based content is just wonderful written and designed and I can't wait for upcoming Argonian tales and adventures to be told. Thank you all, this was and still is one of the best gaming experiences I had within the last 10 years.
If you ask me, the writers, map designers and creators behind Murkmire should get the opportunity to come up with an even bigger Argonian based full ESO Chapter and map one day. I would love to learn more about the wonderful, complex Argonian history and culture.
The music + having the opportunity to interact with the natural Argonian based environment and NPC's of Murkmire (firestones, plants, characters etc.) creates a unique atmosphere. Murkmire is full of life, even in the most distant corners and there is so much one can discover while travelling all over this little map. As playing with an Argonian toon Murkmire feels 100% home and this is just epic to experience. It's like a long awaited homecoming... an Argonian dream came true. Can't wait to get the new Lakemire Xanmeer Manor noble house which is placed in Murkmire's north. The NPC's are wonderful drawn in character and they're showing different personalities and behaviour. I would strongly recommend to just take some time while doing all the quests. Let the NPC's talk, take your time and listen to them, read the books carefully... and then you will be able to fall into a deep, well told, powerful and caring storyline full of empathy. Without a question you will be able to enjoy Murkmire a lot more when not rushing through caves, books and NPC communication. Gear down and enjoy!
For me personal this is so far the best The Elder Scrolls Online - DLC because of all the love and details for the atmosphere, storytelling, environment and characters.
Thank you for a great gaming experience!
May the Hist forever guide you, friends and may you always prosper under a blessed sun.
