UESP Reaches 20,000 Articles — February 15, 2014
Almost six years to the month, the UESP wiki has doubled its content articles to 20,000, as confirmed by the Statistics page. With Elder Scrolls Online due for release only a few short months from now, and our revamp of many item pages from simple redirects (in response to the UESP survey), that number is sure to increase dramatically. Special thanks to all editors who helped make it happen, and to all our readers who continue to provide the reason for our existence. We can't wait to share with you all our next 10,000 articles!
On a smaller note we have also reached 30,000 files, which includes images, patches for older games, and sound files.
Elder Scrolls Online Non-Disclosure Agreement Has Ended — February 15, 2014
ZeniMax Online Studios has given Elder Scrolls fans the unique opportunity to beta test the newest installment of the franchise, Elder Scrolls Online, but not permission to share their experiences in the game. At long last, the ESO non-disclosure agreement has been lifted. While there is no beta session at the moment, future beta sessions will allow its players to share images, videos, and any information they want out of the game.
After several months of having to give willing contributors the cold shoulder, we ourselves will finally be able to accept many more additions relating to ESO. Industrious beta testers who wish to contribute to the wiki are now free to do so.
Elder Scrolls Online Prepares for Another Round of Beta — February 4, 2014
Following the recent announcements about the pre-order and special edition bonuses, a new beta session has been announced. As always, the beta is restricted to the confines of the NDA that all participants have agreed to follow. Any information from within the beta cannot be shared outside of it, which means that any player of the beta should not share their discoveries on a site such as ours.
If you did not get a beta invite, be sure to check your spam folder, as well as the promotions tab for users of Gmail. If you still did not get one, all hope is not lost for those who want to get in. Curse has been given 500,000 beta keys
that they will be giving away to premium members of their site, with the rest of the keys being given away to regular members after their paid subscribers have gotten the first chance at them.
Elder Scrolls Online Pre-order and Special Editions Bonuses Released — January 29, 2014
With Elder Scrolls Online only a few months away from public release, information on pre-order and special edition bonuses has finally come out. For starters, all people who pre-purchase the game through the Elder Scrolls Online store or pre-order at a participating retailer will receive the Explorer's Pack, which gives the player the ability to play as any race in any of the Alliances. Additionally, the Explorer's Pack will give the buyer a Scuttler vanity pet, and four bonus treasure maps for some additional loot. As a final bonus to all early purchases, all pre-purchases will allow the buyer to get into the game five days before the official release.
While the pre-purchase of the Standard Edition comes with all of the above, the newly revealed Imperial Edition will give the buyer the ability to play as an Imperial, who were previously announced as being unavailable for the game. The Imperial Edition will also give the player an Imperial White Horse, which can be summoned to be used as a mount, a mudcrab pet, and two Rings of Mara. The Rings of Mara can be used with another player to complete the Ritual of Mara, which will give the two additional experience while playing together from then on. Retail copies of the Imperial Edition will finally come with a 12 inch tall statue of Molag Bal, a map of Tamriel, and The Emperor's Guide to Tamriel, a 224-page guide to Tamriel, featuring annotations from the Imperial scholar Flaccus Terentius.
To go along with these announcements, a new trailer has also been made available to the public.
: To further show off the Imperial Edition, an official unboxing of its contents by Lead Loremaster Lawrence Schick has been released

Lord Indoril Nerevar, also called Nerevar Moon-and-Star and Godkiller, was the Chimeri king of Resdayn (modern-day Morrowind). As the Hortator, or Great Ashkhan, of the united Chimer people, he forged an alliance with the Dwemer, and he was one of the founders of the First Council, uniting all the people of Resdayn for the first time in 1E 416. Nerevar then took on the title of "First Councilor". The alliance eventually broke down, leading to the War of the First Council. At the climactic Battle of Red Mountain circa 1E 700, Nerevar led the Chimer to victory, though he died shortly after the battle under disputed circumstances.
