'''''The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Eye of Argonia''''' was a planned sequel to [[Redguard:Redguard|''Redguard'']]. Like its predecessor, it was an action-adventure game with few of the role-playing elements of other [[General:Elder Scrolls|Elder Scrolls]] titles. In response to ''Redguard'''s poor sales, it was planned to be released on the [[wikipedia:PlayStation 2|PlayStation 2]] and other consoles, rather than PC. The game seemingly never made it past conception, with work resuming on [[Morrowind:Morrowind|''The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind'']] instead. <noinclude>The name would imply that the game would have taken place in [[Lore:Black Marsh|Black Marsh]] (a.k.a. [[Lore:Argonia|Argonia]]).
In ''Redguard'', [[Redguard:Cyrus|Cyrus]] discusses the Eye of Argonia briefly with [[Redguard:Tobias|Tobias]] and [[Redguard:Dreekius|Dreekius]]. Described by Dreekius as the "priceless king's jewel of ancient Black Marsh", it is a treasure sought by both Tobias and Cyrus. It was mentioned in the mock Q&A for [[Books:The Origin of Cyrus!|The Origin of Cyrus!]] as "a priceless gem that also serves as a key to the Lost City of Black Marsh". Since the game's cancellation, it has appeared briefly as an Easter egg in subsequent games. The book ''[[Lore:Ruins of Kemel-Ze|Ruins of Kemel-Ze]]'', found in allmost games since ''Morrowind'', mentions the Eye, where the author, archaeologist [[Lore:Books by Author#Rolard Nordssen|Rolard Nordssen]], dreams of recovering it. In [[Tribunal:Tribunal|''Tribunal'']], one of ''Morrowind'''s two expansions, the Eye is mentioned in dialogue with [[Tribunal:Trels Varis|Trels Varis]] upon entering his secret office.
A third TESA game named ''[[Paradise Sugar]]'' was also supposedly planned.
*A title graphic for "Argonia" can be found in an official Daedric font file first packaged on the ''Morrowind'' CD. It has sub-text in Daedric lettering which reads, "AND A HERO FROM HAEROT WILL SAVE THEM". Although unconfirmed as a logo for the game, it does appear to be contemporary with the project's previsualization stage.
