In the lorebook, Letter to Rana, Rana is stripped of her rank and is removed from Pelagiad Garrison. Pelagiad doesn't exist in Vvardenfell in the 2nd Era.

The Npc Hlethena Vando comments to another NPC on how the redoran live inside Ald'ruhn in Skarr. At the time, Ashlanders own that territory.
"You know, in Ald'ruhn, the Redoran live in a massive crab shell. It's not really this tall, though."

Desele's House of Earthly Delights is a pleasure house in the city of Suran that was named after a person that wasn't born until the Third era. This one is passable and the person in the Third Era could alternately have changed her name to fit the house.

    I've been commenting on Hlethena's dialogue since Morrowind beta but no change so far. My thread must be around here somewhere
    "If a stick of fish is a fish stick, it will stick like other fish sticks stick"
    "Taller races now sit in chairs correctly"

    A shame that this hasn't been corrected.

    I remember reading some comments from devs on Pelagiad. They said, it is of course a mistake.

    You'll find TES is filled with these kinds of inconsistencies.

    Still, it's better to bring them to attention than to shove them aside. I applaud you, sir.

    And it won't be. I've spent years trying to bring their attention to things like this. They never care. All it would take is a quick change of some text in most of the cases you listed. But they won't fix it. What does that say about them?

    No one is saying there aren't multiple interpretations of the lore, and we're not arguing that ESO did it "wrong".

    We're arguing that they decided to go for the most boring, mundane, seen-before interpretation possible. Like they almost always do, unless they can ride on the coat-tails of past games.
