You load up the game and are asked to choose a race.
You then get to choose a sex.
You then get to choose your skills.
You then choose a starsign.
You then choose a starter town.
You head out and hear that there is a war going on.
The war is taking place between lots of factions but the largest 3 are a merchant lord from Breton, a Nord warlord and a mysterious elven matriach.
They are fighting over the crown of tamriel and the lands surrounding the tower.
Because of where you started you find there is a lot of support for the Breton lord.
Following the story you find there is a lot you can do to assist the breton merchant lord in the area and doing so might reflect well if you wanted to fight for this lord.
You are also aware of some people looking to hire people for jobs that might be against the local lord.
You decide to stay out of the fight for now and set off to explore the world.
You explore from the Northern reaches of the frozen north to the hot and humid swamps in the east and even venture todards the sommerset isles.
During your travels you get to hear all about the war, all about what each faction fights for and how the world is being affected by each.
You are now a well informed individual who understands what the fight is all about and can choose, if you wish, to join sides.
Should you wish to join sides you will have to prove yourself by assisting the war effort. You can do that mostly my finding work near each factions stronghold and doing quests that can assist in the war effort for that faction.
You could also perform more subversive quests near the home of a faction you dislike to try and undermine their war efforts.
Be careful though as your alliegence can have an effect on who will like you and who may not.
Outside the warzone you may find certain regions who have close links with each faction may no longer trust you.
You also hear of several large guilds affiliated to factions that you might want to keep an eye on.
These large organisations might someday vie for the crown themselves and become a force in the great nation of Tamriel.
Enter Cyrodil and fight for the side you choose, wear their colors and earn your reward.
