Title.

I would love to dig deeper into Elder Scrolls (Online) lore and that's why I am looking for good YouTube channels that cover this topic - any recommendations?

    I guess if you want to cover more of a general topics and themes can try something like fudgemuppet or how they're called. If you have some idea already you can try a memospore channel which is more like a discussion club but they're going deeper into psychological and theological stuff etc. if that's something you're interested in.

    There's a history channel called Kings and Generals which makes cool documentaries on ancient generals, which is pretty cool.
    They just made a new channel (well, a couple of months ago) called Wizards and Warriors, which uses the same format they have for their history documentaries for fantasy documentaries, it's fairly new, but the way they made the lore from elder scrolls from the beginning of times, through Alessia's liberation of Cyrodiil and the rise of tiber septim in a documentary with awesome graphics is really a channel worth keeping in mind. They did game of thrones and the witcher too.

    Not sure if I can post links

    If you want extensive lore, there's nothing better than https://uesp.net.

    No videos, but thousands of pages of lore at your finger tips. Most of it is concise enough to read, and if you want to lose yourself for a day or month, you surely can. The rabbit holes get deep thanks to links.

    Run by fans for fans, I wouldn't be one bit surprised if the devs at Zenimax and Bethesda go there to research their own lore. :lol:

    Another link to go with UESP is https://www.imperial-library.info/
    They have collected every in game book, essays, etc on TES since 1998.
    Both are great references that I use all the time.

    Would agree that last posts are much more useful for that kind of information than any video format out there. You can find literally everything ever being available and more, for sure eso devs also going there for the info as there's probably no other source like those, a lot of people aren't in company anymore to be contacted.

    I do read wikis too, but I’d prefer to have the general information more condensed and presented in a video.

    Thank you for all the suggestions, I’ll check them out!

    Your Welcome.
    I have been a TES "Lore Nerd" since TES3.
    What's fun is when you watch a lore vid and catch them wrong on something! Lol.. :)
    Enjoy your journey into the massive lore of TES.
    Huzzah!
