==Gameplay Universe==
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: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 ''TheAn Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire'' and ''The Elder Scrolls IV: 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.
