The Elder Scrolls 6’s setting has long been a source of discussion among fans of the series, with many speculating that additional information about the next game may be released in the near future.
The huge province of Hammerfell has been suggested as a possible location for The Elder Scrolls 6, considering it hasn’t appeared in previous Elder Scrolls games. If Hammerfell is to be the major setting for TES 6, it has a plethora of noteworthy locales that must be included.
- Alik’r Desert
The Alik’r Desert is one of the most significant places in Hammerfell. The Alik’r Desert, a seemingly unending expanse of desert sand, occupies the westernmost part of Hammerfell Province. As a result, the Alik’r Desert is home to several established communities and races, among them the Redguard. In Hammerfell, the Redguards are by far the most numerous race. A long-ago invasion by the Redguards, originating from the land of Yokuda, brought them to Hammerfell.
The towns of Sentinel and Bergama, the two main communities in the Alik’r Desert, play an important role in defining the region’s persistent culture. Sentinel, the current capital of Hammerfell, is one of the most prominent villages in the region. Due to its closeness to Iliac Bay, Sentinel plays a significant role in Elder Scrolls Online.
The long-abandoned Dwemer capital of Volenfell may also be found in the Alik’r Desert. Whereas the Dwemer civilization dwindled, the beautiful towns and buildings that they left behind serve as a witness to Hammerfell’s rich mythology and history.
- Stros M’Kai
Stros M’Kai, an island region of the province’s southwest coast, is one of Hammerfell’s most unusual locales. Despite its tiny size in comparison to Hammerfell’s mainland, the island has played a significant part in the history of a variety of distinct groups. The Crowns, one of the two major political groups in Hammerfell, rule the island. The Crowns are a more conventional band of Redguard puritans, with a primary focus on preserving the Yokuda continent’s culture and customs.
The Septim Empire set established a temporary administration on the island of Stros M’Kai after the Conquest of Hammerfell in order to secure a political footing in their newly gained province. A political hotspot may quickly develop given the Crowns’ displeasure at Hammerfell’s surrender to the Septim Empire.
The northernmost city of Hammerfell, Dragonstar, is also a significant stopover point. Fans of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will recognize Dragonstar’s location as being near the borders of Skyrim.
The Dragontail Mountains divide the province of Hammerfell from the Skyrim-like province of Dragonstar, one of the nine kingdoms that make up Hammerfell. The prominence of Dragonstar may be traced back to the Second Era, when the native Nords of Skyrim first built the village as a mining center. The long-running dispute for control of Dragonstar between the Nords and Redguards would make an excellent plot element for The Elder Scrolls 6. For those who choose to leave Skyrim, Dragonstar would be an appropriate tribute to the now-iconic game.
Another of Hammerfell’s nine kingdoms, Ska’vyn, is located in this city. Ska’vyn’s significance is derived from the Dwarven tower called Fang Lair that towers above the city, despite its location in the desert.
Fang Lair, a long-abandoned Dwarven mine, is said to be home to a monstrous beast. The Elder Scrolls: Arena, Fang Lair, and Ska’vyn would give an exciting level of adventure and world-building for The Elder Scrolls 6. One minor illustration of the kinds of tasks that might result from a trip to Ska’vyn can be found in Fang Lair, the resting place of the formidable dragon Thurvoken.
