Kohlar the Unkilled
Time for some ale
Thanks for the detailed reply. I haven't examined the lore closely enough to detect the holes, and game-to-game inconsistencies. I trust that they are present and perhaps I'll find them. However, it shouldn't bother one who's aware of the inconsistencies and holes that exist within the history of any civilization. It could be posited that the very inconsistencies within TES lore adds to it's realism. After all history, is really a matter of perspective.Kohlar the Unkilled
For a time , I believed that Bethesda 's The Elder Scrolls series contained the best lore attainable : the most in - depth , intricate , interesting , and complete characters and plot. With time and closer inspection , my opinion has changed. There are plentiful plot holes in TES games and the lore of the games are not always compatible with each other. I 'm not saying that the lore is bad or that Bethesda did a bad job ; what I 'm saying is that lore realism doesn't seem to be a main goal of theirs , and that they could have done better lore - wise had they been more interested in pursuing lore over gameplay.
That is a long , winding discussion for another time. Part of the reason I bought ESO [ which was when the subscription fee was removed ] was because I didn't want to miss out on potential lore and exploration. Both aspects remain the main reason why I still play , besides the fact that I mostly enjoy the combat [ but not dungeon ] system. Exploring is possibly the most important thing to me in this game.

(It would be worthy of a new thread: the long, winding discussion you mentioned above and reserved for another time. I'd contribute. )
