Company Line: Nestled in the Dragontail Mountains, protected from trespassers by a magic barrier, lies the Scenarist Guild citadel. Ruled with an iron hand by Nezmyt, the Scenarists are Tamriel's troubadours, bards, and minstrels, whose notes and observations have been compiled into a thousand impressive volumes. In the Year 370 of the Third Era, Nezmyt created a sect of Imperial scribes who were charged with recording all historical events, beginning with the defeat of Jagar Tharn. Smuggled out by an anonymous renegade guild member, the book, now known as The Dag gerfall Chronicles, was hidden in a shrine of the Oracle. The Daggerfall Chronicles grants the reader a guided tour of how to traverse the Daggerfall landscape from a physical, mystical, and historical perspective. This is the must-have survivor's guide to anyone venturing forth in Tamriel's region of Daggerfall . Specific answers to every conceivable question a Daggerfall player could ever have are contained within.
