Changed "open" to "opens"
'''A Pocket Guide to The Empire and its Environs''' (Being a Description of the Lands and the Chief Features of their Histories) was part of the Collector's Edition package for [[Oblivion:Oblivion|Oblivion]]. It was a rewritten version of the [[Books:Pocket Guide to the Empire: 1st Edition|Pocket Guide to the Empire: 1st Edition]] that had shipped eight years earlier with [[Redguard:Redguard|Redguard]], but while the old version had been stridently pro-Imperial in its tone, the new version was much more even-handed and less propagandist.
open with a history of the guide itself, before devoting sections to the universe, [[Lore:Planes of Oblivion|Oblivion]], [[Lore:Aetherius|Aetherius]], [[Lore:birthsigns|birthsigns]] and [[Lore:History|History]]. There are then detailed sections on each of the provinces of [[Lore:Tamriel|Tamriel]], which take up the vast majority of the book, before a final section on Other Lands, that briefly describes [[Lore:Thras|Thras]], [[Lore:Pyandonea|Pyandonea]], [[Lore:Akavir|Akavir]], [[Lore:Yokuda|Yokuda]], [[Lore:Aldmeris|Aldmeris]], and [[Lore:Atmora|Atmora]].
The guide can be read in full [[Lore:Pocket Guide to the Empire, 3rd Edition|here]].
