The Elder Scrolls (commonly referred to as ''TES'') is an award-winning series of roleplaying games created by [[General:Bethesda|Bethesda Softworks]]. Set in the vast continent of [[Lore:Tamriel|Tamriel]], The Elder Scrolls series is renowned for the level of unprecedented control given to the player over his or her character's destiny, establishing itself as the benchmark in immersive, independently-living worlds for the RPG genre.
The series consists of five primary games:
* [[Arena:Arena|''The Elder Scrolls: Arena'']] (1994)
* [[Daggerfall:Daggerfall|''The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall'']] (1996)
* [[Morrowind:Morrowind|''The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind'']] (2002)
:* [[Morrowind:Official Add-Ons|''Official Plug-Ins'']] (2002-2003 / ''Morrowind'' plug-ins)
:* [[Tribunal:Tribunal|''The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal'']] (2002 / ''Morrowind'' expansion pack)
:* [[Bloodmoon:Bloodmoon|''The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon'']] (2003 / ''Morrowind'' expansion pack)
* [[Oblivion:Oblivion|''The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion'']] (2006)
:* [[Oblivion:Official Add-Ons|''Official Plug-Ins'']] (2006-2007 / ''Oblivion'' plug-ins)
:* [[Shivering:Shivering Isles|''The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles'']] (2007 / ''Oblivion'' expansion pack)
* [[Skyrim:Skyrim|''The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim'']] (2011)
:* [[Skyrim:Official Add-Ons|''Official Add-Ons'']] (2012 / ''Skyrim'' add-ons)
Apart from the central storyline, a wide range of games have been set within the world of The Elder Scrolls, including:
* [[Battlespire:Battlespire|''An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire'']] (1997)
* [[Redguard:Redguard|''The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard'']] (1998)

* [[Legends:Legends|''The Elder Scrolls: Legends'']] (2015)
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.
