Community News and Articles

Scrollplay is the ESO roleplay talkshow and it's back for Season 2!

This time around I would like to focus a lot more on current IC and OOC events in the RP community. To help me with this I have enslaved aqcuired the help of six of ESO's most active and devoted players, one from each faction across both Megaservers. This means that no matter where you play in ESO Scrollplay has news that is relevent to your RP!

If you would like your storyline, event or IC rumor to appear in Scrollplay check out tinyurl.com/ScrollplayNews

In this episode I interview JtheExile, player of one of the NA EP's most reviled villains, Arthyn Sarthos. What value is there in RPing a terrible person? What could possibly cause someone to be as callous towards slavery as Sarthos? How many attractive Bosmer women does Arthyn keep in his freezer?

Find out all this and more on Scrollplay!

Nights Knight Thank you for the shout out Floyd! you da best.
Nahva Great episode. Was fun to watch.
JtheExile Had so much fun doing this interview Floyd!

Welcome to the next Morndas Musings, over the last few weeks a few questions have been asked about why you choose to RP, what race do you favour and other such questions, but something perhaps to muse on this week; How does your Character overcome adversity? Do they jump to brute strength? cunning? manipulation? Do they simply turn their back upon it and walk another path? With so much adversity often shoved in our Portagonist and Antagonist faces, how does your Character deal with it when it comes up?

Greetings dear readers of The Lollygagger, welcome your eyes to the most recent edition. On the last edition filled with strange character's and odd symbols we went about letting the wide world know of various groups within varied lands of the Three Alliances.

Within this edition we'll be taking a deep look within upcoming events of note from across the land, as well as featuring some lovely Art submitted for a spotlight feature, not to mention the tried but true 'Character Spotlight' of one of the much loved and hard working members of the Community! So without further a-do let's get on with it, oh and not to forget, dear readers, our amazing assortment of jokes!

So first off the bat, There are Rumours that a Khajiit Chief known as 'Tazita' is looking for muscle-for-hire, over this coming weekend. Interested folk should go on over towards the 'Flaming Nix Tavern' in Mournhold.

Though if you're more Dominion orientated, perhaps have a look around Vulkhel Guard for a group known as 'The Dominion Guard' Rumours have it their Leader is currently very ill, but should return to duty soon, and would likely benefit from knowing a great interest in protecting the Dominion, who knows miracles sometimes happen right?

Swinging to the Covenant, some say a few weeks ago, they captured quite the number of Pact Soldiers, so our sources indicate, between Brindle and Roebeck Castle however, there are stirrings, that a counter attack may be launched? We cannot confirm this for certain, though if publicized, who knows, it might make for a mighty fine scrap to involve yourself within, if you..enjoy that sort of thing. I'd make a guess based on sources optimism, it might happen on the 14th of First Seed.

Don't forget on the 15th, the Karthdar Market Day returns like clockwork, though some even have said on that very same night, in Riften they hold Brawls by the Pier, though this might just be rumours, maybe worth checking out. On the 16th of First Seed in the evening a Caravan to Skyrim is meant to be undertaking itself on a long journey, if you're looking for a ride, you may be able to barter passage, so keep a look out!

On the 18th don't forget to check out Wayrest, followed on the 19th also, as you well know they always have something going on every Week, so look out for the adventures to come!

Now we'll get the 'best' part over with, the 'funnies' section, I know it'll be sad to skim through it but we are sure you'll be able to muster the strength.

  • What is covered in Fur and has a lovely Tail? A Bosmer in a Khajiit Cloak.

Don't worry we'll give you a few seconds to stop laughing out loud at the magnitude of intellect we showed there.

  • Q: How do Bosmer send messages in the forest?
    A: By moss code.

We know, genius!

  • What do you wear to dinner in Vallenwood?
  • Barbecue Sauce.

  • Did you hear about the old Argonian who couldn't keep his scales moist?
  • He had a reptile dysfunction.

Yes yes, we know, not the best, but we do hope you giggled at some of them, but either way your dose of funnies is painfully over now, we'll feature a bit of Art, as everyone loves a little prettiness. Followed by our 'Character Spotlight'.


Our Featured Art this Week is none other than:

The Artist wished to remain anonymous, but we were happy to be able to present his work. It is a representation from his 'sketchbook' that he carries around, the very first Orc he had met since leaving home, a very nice visualization for the shock on the poor Orc's face when coming brow to brow with a Bosmer of all people. We like it.

And it leads us to the final point, the Community Member of the Article, now this is somewhat a shameless self promotion, but asking around, it seemed to be allowed, thus we ran with what we were given here at the Lollygagger, and featured 'Commodore Fury', one of the founders of the Paper.

Well, one of our Journalists sat down with the Commodore and asked him a few questions, which are documented below.

“Hello Commodore, a pleasure to sit down and chat.”


“Thank ye, a've not really don' many an interview be'ore.”


“Don't worry, it's nothing too stretching, we'll start by asking; How long have you been considered a Community 'team player?'


“Well a'reckon not too long, not t' say I've not always looked to improvin' tha' place, but mor' along tha' lines o' never really consid'red meself a 'Leader' of folk outside tha' Crew.”


“Ah I see, well as a founding member of this Paper, and a few other events of note around Tamriel, what drove you to it? Rumour has it you were something of a 'ruffian'?”


“Well ya see, I still am, I mean I ain't exact'y the best speaker, but a'get me message across. Wha' drove me to it originally were, savin' me own skin, Pirate Hunter's were out thar, killin' off me people, still ar' So, I joined tha' Dominion, offered meself and me Crew in return fer the chance to get the gear needed to hunt 'em down.”


“Oh really? The Dominion Guard this is yes? This was formed from allocation by the Aldmeri Dominion?”


“Ye, it were originally formed in order for us te find those 'unting us down an' kill 'em. But as time went on, we sorta fell into actually enjoyin' honest work, Sure it's 'ard work but, it's good, Heh some might say a Pirate turned honest man, well in me case Bosmer aha.”


“Yes. Quite, well, what do you think makes you a Community Leader?”


“Hm, hard t' say, Might jus' be me good looks an' charm, ahaha, In seriousness mind ye, no clue, I think I just enjoy doin' somethin' o' anything. If something needs doin' I'll be the first to try it, if it's been done before, an' failed, I'll make it work, Guess it's upbringing ya could say?”


“Mh, true, well suffice to say a few people think of you as a 'Leader' of sorts, what do you say to that?”


“Ah, well as a Leader of the Dominion Guard, sure, but I ain't really seein' meself as a Leader of an entire Community like. Though, if folk think that way, all the better, A Pirate turned, somewhat honest Bosmer, lookin' out fer people within' the Dominion, an' makin' friends with those outside o' Dominion? Eh, Guess I just be a nice guy when it comes down to it.”


“Ah, that may be true, well regardless, people seem to occasionally look up to you, even if it's just one or two, haha. I trust you'll be around a while to help the Community if it requires?”


“Aye, tha' be true, I'll be 'ere, least till me bones are gone. But a'll make sure someone will be t' carry on wit' the whole Community 'elping folk.”

And there you have it, A brief 'interview' with our own Commodore, lacking on grammar, we thought best to capture his exact dialect out of respect. But we hope you've enjoyed this Weeks Lollygagger, and look forward to Lollygagging with you next time! Stay safe and enjoy yourselves!
