Next DLC / Chapter - Continuation of Main Quest

I thought the main quest of the base game was great.
Years after defeating Molag Bal, saving Wrothgar, Clockwork City, Morrowind, becoming a Master Thief and assassin, becoming the hero of all three factions...Meridia is still standing in the same spot, and the old elf king's body is still on the ground as if the final battle just happened.

Can the next DLC / Chapter focus on continuing the main quest, and updating/changing the base world? There are infinite possibilities due to the base material you have to work with - the physical size, the massive amount of lore and characters.
Did we truly see the last of Vanus? He tells you he won't be seen again at the conclusion of Wrothgar - but was it true? Are there sons/daughters we don't know about? What about the 5 companions? What about the 3 main factions and their leaders? How about Sheogorath, the fighter's guild, and the mage's guild? Will the mages do anything with Eyevea - perhaps work with the Psijic order, or something completely different? Any one of these topics, and hundreds more, can be explored extensively.

The last thing I want is to see content being played through once, and then left for dead. The various daily quests from thieve's/dark brotherhood/mage/fighter that send you around the world are a very small step in the right direction, and it's not remotely enough.

    I think the book at the end of Summerset holds a clue what's going to happen next.
    My guess is: our next enemy is going to be Meridia.
    I base my assumption on the words of Darien, Meridia is not the good guy we think she/he is.

    Let's also remember that in the Summerset's main quest, Meridia's realm is attacked... but just because someone mentions that she is deceitful, just remember that Sotha Sil says the same thing about Almalexia. I would love to see more storylines involving various Deadric princes, I absolutely loved the main storyline in Summerset.

    New classes or races? Play to win, play to win! Jk

    I still dont know why they havent added new weapons. Really, they havent thought of polearms, crossbows, hand to hand in Tamriel? Look at them, who puts a dagger on a stick!

    Players have generated extensive ideas and I dont know why they dont go for it. I think part of the problem is the population itself and complaining at anything, for example, jewlery crafting is ptw. Necromancer would have been an awesome release last patch, such a waisted opportunity.

    I personally hope that Meridia becomes the next daedric villain that would be intresting and I hate her :D she is boooring (to quote Uncle Sheo) but I'd also like to meet with Abnur even if for some reason he would become a villain in one of the chapters or dlc but I think the next Chapter will be similar to Wrothgar story wise (maybe)

    Okay I agree, I think this is the set up for Meridia being a future antagonist. We do know her Auroran race costume was datamined.

    Meridia and even Nocturnal strike me as the villain types who have good intentions, but go about it wrong.

    If we look back, Molag Bal may have been trying to hint something in his final dialogue in eso main story. "What a powerful ally you have. Did you know she would bring you here? What future role does she play in this grand cosmic farce I wonder..."

    Then given her role in Summerset then the book from Darien...

    If anyone us being set up as a future villain, it's Meridia. I hope this happens, I love Meridia and want to see more of her and her cool realm.

    The Prince of Darkness has been defeated, is the Prince of Light up next?

    Technically Mistress/Princess, since I've never seen Meridia depicted as a male (not with my personal experience; she could have been, I just didn't catch it/haven't seen it yet). Personally, I'd like ZOS to finish fleshing out Cyrodiil; i.e., add the Skingrad/West Weald and the Leyawiin/Blackwood areas. And bring back the house on the volcanic island when they add Blackwood; I always wanted that house! I would also like to see more of Hammerfell, since it was one of the two provinces featured in Daggerfall, and I personally enjoyed romping through TES2's mating octopi dungeons; again, should this happen, I would like for the Princely Dawnlight Palace and the Dibella's Arboretum furnishing pack to return. However, I feel very confident that western Skyrim will be showing up as a new chapter sooner rather than later, as they already have quite a bit of lore for it set up. Perhaps Meridia will assault western Skyrim? She already has a known shrine just west of Solitude, so I think it's very feasible that we'll all be pre-ordering ESO: Skyrim in a year's time.

Not that there's anything wrong with the word ''paws'' (I currently have four dogs and twenty-two cats, so I don't think animals with paws bother me. Neither do any other animals, for that matter; I love animals!), just that ''PAWS'' stands for ''Positively Against Wrip-off Stuff'', and mis-spellings do bother me.'

    Daedric Princes lack an actual sex, they are divine beings beyond such things. They just choose to appear however they please. They are all referred to as Princes regardless, Meridia even calls herself Prince in Summerset. There's no actual male or female Princes, merely they are what they are.

    Some Princes like Boethiah changer their gender appearance all the time. Others selectively. Malacath for example chose a form of a beautiful, naked aldmer woman in Lord of Souls to get a character to spill the beans.

    I'm pretty confident ZoS knows that a ESO: skyrim wont be well received. Many of us bought numerous Skyrim versions...if I need to dish out more money for an Eso skyrim...

    Personally I think the next Chapter will be in Hammerfell at least my theory is one DC (Wrothgar even though its a DLC) then EP (Vvardenfell) and now AD (Summerset) so probably I think the next is gonna be Somewhere Hammerfell and one of the smaller DLC will take us somewhere in Cyro or Spriral Skein as an epilogue to the Triad storyline maybe

    @PrayingSeraph: True, I had forgotten that temporarily. :/ I think Boethiah's sexual appearance changes depending upon where (s)he's being worshipped: the Dunmer frequently regard her/him as female in appearance, while his/her followers in Cyrodiil seem to regard him/her as more masculine; this is probably true of many of the Princes, in reality, not just a few of them. Some, like Molag Bal, clearly have no defined sex, neither in reality nor in appearance (Bal is clealy modelled after the appearance of Satan, while Mehrunes Dagon is probably based upon aspects of Buddhist lore, possibly Shiva/Sheba (spelling?)).

    @BigBadVolk: Based upon that evidence (I never noticed there was a trend!), I think it very likely that next year's chapter will flesh out the remainder of Hammerfell. Which kind of makes sense, in a way: if Meridia really is being set up to be our next major villain, then it would be somewhat logical for her to target a desert, being the Prince of Light, and deserts receiving more than their fair share of that... :D Besides, I would really like to see more lore built upon the Shehai Shen She Ru; I think it's an awesome concept, and really sets the Redguards apart from other races of Men, both in TES and in other franchises. Also, it just irks me ever so slightly that we can't just travel over land to get to either the Alik'r Desert or Hew's Bane; for those of us who just like to use the wayshrine system to give ourselves quick access to merchants and crafting stations, it's immersion-breaking to have to use either the wayshrine network (which, in all honesty, should always be free, being ESO's answer to previous TES games' method of fast-travelling), or ferry services (which should cost a small amount of gold, for realism and immersion) just to get to certain, remote areas.

    I wouldn't mind to take the story towards Balfiera and Ada-Mantia. So far, most of the story has been related in a way or another with the towers of Nirn (White-Gold and the Amulet of Kings in the base game, Red Mountain in Morrowind, Crystal-Like-Law in Summerset), so Id' expect something like that will happen with the future chapters, either with the Adamantine Tower or the Throat of the World (or perhaps learn more about Oricalc with a Hammerfell chapter with ties with Yokuda).

    Since all alliances got their big expansions (Craglorn/Wrothgar, Vvardenfell, Summerset) I'd expect next chapter to go back in Covenant territory, with some DLC set in the Colovian Estates, Murkmire (finally) and/or Tenmar (Elseweyr needs love too).
    I think Boethiah's sexual appearance changes depending upon where (s)he's being worshipped: the Dunmer frequently regard her/him as female in appearance, while his/her followers in Cyrodiil seem to regard him/her as more masculine; this

    "Boethiah is the Anticipation of Almalexia but male to her female. " (Anonymous - "The Anticipations", Morrowind version).

    I think Boh just appears how the mood strikes it. In the DSA there are statues that depicts it in both forms (female in the Arena, wielding Goldbrand, male in the final room, with an axe), in Daggerfall, Morrowind and Oblivion all statues used the male form, in Skyrim and most part of ESO appears as female... perhaps it just appears to people the way they expect it to be.

    Kind of funny, referring to a living being as "it" without being degrading (English desperately needs common-gender, singular pronouns; so far, all we have are the plurals "they", "them", "their", and "theirs").

    Yeah there wasn't many big hints like in past DLC's to see what zone is coming next, (bet some of the writers reading this are going.....YOU DIDN'T LOOK HARD ENOUGH!!)

    But yes massive hint that Meridia will be popping up in the future as someone for us to slap back into place. Hey who knows might even get to go to the Coloured rooms in a DLC (I freaking hope).

    There are a few NPC's that mention to zones not in the game yet, Murkmire and the Throat of the world was mentioned a handful of times. Not saying where (as cannot remember locations) lol. I think a big Skyrim chapter is going to be a thing, but not quite sure it will be the next one....or even the one after that (happy to eat my words).

    Wrothgar was a Pre-chapter DLC, so if we count it in and so far each alliance has had one now. Will the next three follow the same pattern? If this was the case then would have close bets on a big chunk of Hammerfell. Or are we going to go by race this time? That would mean the races with the least coverage at the moment would be the beast ones Khajiit and Argonian.

    So if we were going by that, I think Murkmire would be a good contender as it has been in the pipeline for some time. But is it a chapter or an adventure zone like Craglorn? As they were going to. Who knows. We know the team re-did Craglorn due to it not being that popular in its original incarnation, so maybe they might not bother with another and set Murkmire as a chapter you have to pay for. Or would adventure zones be getting another revamp? We will see....

    Bring on a full expansion to other continent of Nirn!!! (In the end)...so much lore, so many places, so much I need to smite! lol

    I wouldnt mind if they would release Murkmire as Chapter, but more or less as a Filler Chapter before they begin their new Storyline, like wrothgar did in the past
    Also it could expand on Hist/Void/Sithis lore a bit
