    Correct. Anyone who owns Elsweyr will get one free character slot, and everyone (regardless of owning Elsweyr) will be able to purchase up to two additional slots.

    Please press the powers that be to lets us get more slots than that @ZOS_GinaBruno =D

    You shouldn't need to claim anything, it just shows up as long as you own Elsweyr.

    Is this only available while Elsweyr launches, or is this actually part of Elsweyr? If I were to purchase Elsweyr later on down the line, would I get the slot alongside it?

    technically speaking, between now and June 4th we're still in pre-order time. pc just has early access because reasons (console game updates that large have to be vetted and Sony/Microsoft are slow as a sloth.)

    So until then you can still loot pre-order benefits.

    I do not however know if the free toon slot belongs with the Elsweyr game, or the necromancer specific.
    If it belongs to Elsweyr, you would get it at whatever point you buy Elsweyr. Be that now or when its become a dlc in the far future.
    If it belongs with the Necromancer, then its most likely that once Elsweyr becomes a dlc, the necromancer and the associated free toon slot. will become separate crown store buys.

    However both options are far in the future. you should have plenty of time to save up to buy whichever you want.

    The problem is, I don't feel Elsweyr is worth the 50 odd dollars that it is for me, for only a class, basically, when Morrowind was around $30 IIRC, and it offered a class and Battlegrounds, then Summerset was a bit more expensive (though I got it on sale), and it offered jewelry crafting and Psijic Order. I'm thinking of waiting until Elsweyr drops at least to about $30, but I would like to know if this character slot is part of Elsweyr, or whether it's just a "pre order bonus" while Elsweyr launches.

    It is not listed as a pre-order bonus. So i can say with about 85% certainty that it won't go poof after June 4th.

    You could get Elswyr for like 18% off on GMG now as well for a bit cheaper, also remember if you had base game you just need to purchase the upgrade version not full version

    _______________________Lore and Backstories:__________________________

    Ras Kalik the Vestige, a renown Redguard warrior; He has been blessed to save Tamriel from Molag Bal’s destructive Planemeld while reuniting the Five Companions. His further accomplishments after defeating Molag Bal, has been to stop the destruction of Morrowind, the Clockwork City, return order to the isle of Summerset and create a new king in Wrothgar and a queen in Elsywer. These events have made him a living legend and continue to lead him into new adventures throughout Tamriel, as well as into the hearts of many ladies including the Elf Queen, Aryenn. (not only Sai Sahan has a secret snowflake!) Over many years of adventurous travels, Ras Kalik had become a loner, until he re-visited his homeland of Alik'r.

    Alik'r and it's cities were overrun by the undead Ra-Netu and therefore he made an allegiance with Alik'r's own Ash'abah tribe. These Ash'abah with his help, cleansed the city of Sentinel in Alik'r desert and it's surrounding areas of the undead brought to life by the Withered Hand. After rescuing Sentinel from undead, King Fahara’jad’s personal bodyguard the Goliath of Hammerfell, who was given this name by Imperials in the region; asked to assist the tribe after learning of the defeat of the Withered Hand to the Ash'abah. Kalik promised Goliath he would task him with fighting enemies on the battlefield if he so desired. Goliath being a Yokudan warrior wields a massive sword in respect to the Ansei, Chrysamere, a gift given by the Imperial, Cinan Tharn. Not many soldiers are able to wield double two handed weapons, but Goliath loves to get up and personal in a fight, so he also carries a giant battle-axe.

    Jux Blackheart is a master thief that was frequenting the Sisters of the Sands inn for pilfering during this time. Jux was known to infiltrate any bank vault he came across and even delved into Ayelid ruins without detection. Kalik can vividly recall the night he met the famed thief. Jux found himself rummaging thru a slightly inebriated Kalik’s pocket for too long, on a full-mooned night and because of this and the glimmer of his golden armor in the moonlight and his greed. He lost his left pinky fingertip as a lesson! But in return, he gained a new friend, as it was his first time since a child being caught red-handed...

    Kaotik Von’Daemon an outcast, and a half-caste between a Breton mother and a Redguard father. Kaotik become a pariah due to his conjuration of Daedra pets. He was taught healing magic during his childhood years by his Breton mother. His father due to Redguard customs exiled him from the desert, sending him by wagon caravan to be a soldier in the war in Cyrodiil. He happened to meet Kalik while traveling from Alik'r, during this long caravan ride the caravan he was in was ambushed in Bangkorai by a group of bandits. Kalik by chance was also traveling thru this area on his Auridon Warhorse (which was bestowed to him by his friend, Darien Gautier). During this ambush, Kalik was able to rescue five hostages from the bandits. Kaotik was the first rescued, and Ras Kalik also recruited him to be in the Ash'abah tribe. These core Ash'abah tribesmen may never be seen together in travel as they partake in their own adventures but they always know what each other is doing; as they frequent a hideout in northern Bankorai. Their hideout an old Orc castle ruin, is kept watch by Nuzhimeh and she passes messages written between them, and frequently they also enjoy her company and her bed.

    The other men rescued were a Dunmer banker, an Imperial mercenary and two other soldiers, an Imperial and a Breton Knight, stating proudly he was an Akavir descendent. One of the Imperials, Cinan, claimed to be related to Abnur Tharn the Battlemage of the Imperial Elder Council (One of Ras Kalik's mentors in the Five Companions). Cinan Tharn was really Abnur's drunkard treasure hunting illegitimate son. He was caught smuggling artifacts out of the Ayleid ruins in Cyrodiil and the elder of the two Imperials was Tyrus Septim a retired Imperial navy battle-mage (now mercenary living in the city of Rimmen) and guard to the Tharn family. As much as Abnur Tharn hated his half-sister Euraxia, he dislikes his bas†ard son more. Tyrus now a ruffian and privateer had been paid by Abnur Tharn to watch over Cinan as much as possible. Cinan Tharn a drunkard, loves to drink a quarter barrel of Nord mead before he raids various delves and dungeons for relics to sell on the black market. Tharn also plans to one day run an illegal gambling ring... which he thinks will net him more gold for his wares.

    The Dunmer captive shackled to the Imperials looked familiar to Kalik from his time in Morrowind.... and he recognized him as Tythis Andromo a House Telvanni slave-owner and banker from Vvardenfell. During a rough interrogation to Tythis, Ras Kalik learnt why the bandits accosted him. The racist Dunmer was providing slaves as soldiers for the Three Banner War. The bandits were trying to negotiate a lucrative ransom for Andromo and the Imperials.... Kalik did not need any of this gold and he could never set Tythis free as he did with the two Imperial soldiers. His past involvement with slavery and war crimes, made Kalik's blood boil. He chose not to execute Tythis, as he figured the worse punishment for this former rich and opulent slave owner, is to now be an imprisoned servant for Ras Kalik and the tribe.

    Herzog Zwei the Genesis a reknown Breton/Akavirri battle-mage. His roots going back to Akavir through his mother’s bloodline. (His mother is descended from Akaviri, Versidue-Shae, and his Breton father was visiting Hakoshae when they met) Herzog earned the nickname "the Genesis" from his father as a child, as he was his mother's first born child, and last, and for many years she was told she would not be able to bear a child, she tragically died in child-birth.

    Herzog was seeking to purchase an artifact from Cinan Tharn, before their capture and was meeting Tyrus while in Rimmen, who introduced him to Cinan. This artifact being the Ayelid artifact; the sword Sinweaver. After their rescue and the exchange of gold to Cinan for the sword he decided to slip away before Ras Kalik could question who he was, and why the Akavir descendant really wanted that sword. Herzog was headed to Nagastani — An Ayleid ruin in eastern Cyrodiil. He had read in scrolls that the Sword would give him magical powers to meet his forefathers spirits, if he performed an Ayleid ritual at an old shrine hidden there. Equipped with the artifact sword, he was off to start his own adventure but Ras Kalik, did indeed notice the sword however and instead sent a letter to Jux Blackheart (whom also was interested in Ayleid treasures), to attempt to find Herzog and acquire the sword. (*Azani Blackheart in Elder Scroll's Oblivion is Jux's descendant some 747 years later)

    And so the Redguard, Imperial and Breton men parted ways ... While Ras Kalik went off to Elsweyr to encounter the latest threat to Tamriel, with Abnur Tharn and Sai Sahan - - DRAGONS!! Little did Kalik know a few people were awaiting him in Senchal besides Sai. A necromancer survived his attack on the Withered Hand, while in Alik'r. The one known as Auriek Siet'ka is also following him to the land of the Khajiits and Cacique the Sage of Ius a Shaman mystic who has become attuned spiritually with Tu'whacca (a Redguard God) and Ius (the Animal God), after being burned severely by the escaped dragons, is awaiting his arrival also.

    The journey to Senchal will also put him on a path to meet a strange man which was infected with an untreated Peyrite disease and also was the exiled from the Order of the New Moon cult, due to his sickness. He originally joined the cult to worship Laatvulon, the green dragon, mistakenly thinking it was the Daedric prince Peyrite. This confused and suffering cultist is known as Tsar al-Bomba and he is on a path to spread the disease. He was originally infected in Orccrest while recruiting members there. Can Ras Kalik and the shaman Cacique cure this poor soul, only time will tell. Little does Tsar al-Bomba know, the infection is tied to Vampirism, but eventually the desire for blood, will take over his mind.

    After the trek thru the heat and tropical and desert climate of Northern and Southern Elyswer... Ras Kalik, heads to Skyrim and will encounter...

    Movárth Piquine - a former vampire hunter (now infected) within the Fighter's Guild (and a secretive necromancer) was in Skyrim working with the Morthaal Guard. On a patrol mission he was caught in the Frewien's ice curse outside of Morthaal with the frozen undead. Movárth's vampiric infection kept him from becoming an undead minion to the curse. He was able to use necromantic ice-magic to encase himself safely until he was freed with Freiwen, when the Vestige Ras Kalik broke the curse.

    Uri Ice-Heart - twin of Urfon Ice-Heart. Twin sons of Atli and Oljourn Ice-Heart that are originally from Markarth but are now residing on the Jerall Mountain range near Cyrodiil, their younger sister Araki has also relocated but she is in Windhelm currently. The twins joined the Winterborn Reachmen while living in Markarth. Urfon pushed west to Orsinium with the Winterborn Clan, leaving his family behind. Uri stayed behind with his parents and sister to live in the family cabin for safety, to avoid the Vampire plague infiltrating the Reach. After news reaches him and he hears of Urfon's death... Uri leaves and heads home to the Reach and is seeking vengeance. Meanwhile, his sister has moved on to Windhelm to join the Fighter's guild. He will visit his sister, once before going to seek vengeance and she will craft him armor mixed with ice, called Stalhrim armor.

    In a new adventure, Ras Kalik is often to Leyawiin and will encounter the Imperial scout. Bates Vesuius of Dawnstar - grandfather of Silus Vesuius. His love of fire and destruction will eventually lead him to become a follower of Mehrunes Dagon (the daedric prince of Destruction). Mehrune Dagon delights in creating chaos, ostensibly for the sake of change, throughout Tamriel through the work of mortal agents he selects. He often destroys these agents once they are no longer useful.... Bates Vesuius will be the first in his family to go down this dark path, but not the last.

    Well I may be wrong, but I clearly remember Zenimax told us on the last stream and I quote:

    "With update 22 every one will receive a free character slot"

    ^ This is what they said on the stream. Update 22 is a base game update, regardless if you own Elsweyr or not.

    Maybe they changed the idea and forgot to mention it ? Owning Elsweyr Chapter is pretty important detail here tbh.
    That is why ppl are confused.
