The world of the Elder Scrolls is well-known for its attention to detail and realism, replete with an interconnected structure of various societies, cultures, and religions, each backed by a thorough historical basis, revealed to Elder Scrolls aficionados (who often assume the title of "loremaster") through in-game literature and deep, multi-tiered conversations.
Set within the mortal realm of [[Lore:Mundus|Mundus]], the Elder Scrolls games are invariably placed within one or more of the nine provinces of the continent of [[Lore:Tamriel|Tamriel]], these being:
* [[Lore:Black Marsh|Black Marsh]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Argonian|Argonians]]
* [[Lore:Cyrodiil|Cyrodiil]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Imperial|Imperials]]
* [[Lore:Elsweyr|Elsweyr]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Khajiit|Khajiit]]
* [[Lore:Hammerfell|Hammerfell]] - homeland of the [[Lore: Redguard|Redguards]]
* [[Lore:High Rock|High Rock]] - homeland of the [[Lore: Breton|Bretons]] and [[Lore:Orc|Orcs]]
* [[Lore:Morrowind|Morrowind]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Dunmer|Dunmer]] and [[Lore:Dwemer|Dwemer]]
* [[Lore:Skyrim|Skyrim]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Nord|Nords]] and [[Lore:Falmer|Falmer]]
* [[Lore:Summerset Isle|Summerset Isle]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Altmer|Altmer]]
* [[Lore:Valenwood|Valenwood]] - homeland of the [[Lore:Bosmer|Bosmer]] and [[Lore:Imga|Imga]]
Furthermore, certain titles - namely ''The Elder Scrolls:Battlespire'' and ''The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion'' - take place partially within the alternate, [[Lore:Daedra|Daedra]]-ruled, [[Lore:Planes of Oblivion|Planes of Oblivion]].
While it is known that continents other than Tamriel exist, players have not yet visited them in any official game.
