    UESP is my go to, there are also the Shoddycast videos on YouTube which are shot bites of lore.

    Pretty much this. I recommend picking a race or a topic you want to know more about to start with, and research that (UESP usually cites sources for its general blurbs, so you can see the source material they got it from). And read the books you find when you're playing the games if you aren't already since that's what a lot of the stuff on the wiki is. Beyond that do what you're doing; ask questions. :)

    The biggest problem within this game is the lack imagination on its player base and its developers...

    And read the books you find when you're playing the games if you aren't already

    There's a PDF of all the books in Skyrim floating around somewhere, very helpful for a start. Has all the older lore that's still in game. Thought someone was trying to make a PDF of the ESO specific books, but not sure if that ever happened.

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    Imperial Library is great. There are also the Tales of Tamriel and Skyrim history print books available for sale that contain in-game books. They're for sale individually now but some boxed sets are available for pre-order for a release later this year.

    CHIM is like nirvana. Tiber Septim used CHIM to change Cyrodiil climate from jungle to grasslands and deciduous forests... I mean Vivec had sex with Molag Ball and get CHIM in return to do something I forgot. When you achieve CHIM you are back in time before Aurbis and you can change something. Yeah I know a lot! Winged Twillights are made by Azura, Ogrims by Malacath, Dremoras by Mehrunes Dagon, Hungers by Boethia. I'm genius, I know...

    I'd recommend reading up on the timeline. Give it a quick look through, or go in depth. Lots of characters, events and places are mentioned in this way and you can grasp the evolution of the Elder Scrolls series at the same time. I use the Elder Scrolls Wiki for this, but UESP is also very good.

    Don't try and absorb everything at once, there is a huge amount of lore. Just take it bit by bit.
