Planet Nirn - Political

A map of my interpretation of the Planet Nirn, Political version.

Note that Elsweyr is split in two - The resistance and the Thalmor supporters. Also, southern Morrowind is under Argonian occupation and Vvardenfell is uninhabitable, destroyed by the Red Mountain

Inspired from the official lore and unofficial interpretations such as mods and fan-fiction.

The cartographer's name is my real name slightly changed to sound like that of an Imperial's, and has nothing to do with any lore characters.

I would really need some help in populating more of the non-Tamrielic parts of the map. There is little to no information about those regions, and I don't really have much time to play TES anymore, so I can't find that information by myself. If you find any, especially in ESO (because I'm not playing it too much since I'm not into MMOs), please post it here, if it is solid and valid in the 4th era, I will add it to the map.

Just made a major update. Populated most of Akavir and also added many more markers through the entire map.

In the future I plan to (maybe) split Akavir's empires into their respective states/provinces, kinda like how Tamriel is depicted.

I haven't played TES:O so I don't know if it's bad or not, but yeah, they should make a large TES:6 game... maybe not all of Tamriel, but at least 2 or 3 regions... being limited to only one is becoming pretty boring after a while.

Take a look at this map, my friends. Look at Summerset, Altmer were there first. Look at Hammerfell, Dwemer were there first. Look at Morrowind, Chimer/Dunmer were there first. Look at Skyrim, Falmer were there first. Look at Valenwood, Bosmer where there first. Look at Cyrodiil, the Ayleids were there first. And finally, turn your eyes to Elsweyr, the Khajiit (of elven descent) were there first. You petty men need to return to us what is ours. You WILL lose the battle for the Ruby Throne and we WILL have Cyrodil.

Firstly, I'm not an admirer of those who consider themselves superior. Secondly, it is that kind of elven bigotry that makes us hate you so much (BTW I know this isn't real, I'm just joining in the role-play, so don't take this seriously). Thirdly, I'd very much appreciate it if we all stop insulting and fighting each other and just get along. And fourthly, the Khajiit- for the last time- are NOT descended from elves. They're an entirely separate race. I know some myths state the Khajiit were originally elves or something, but that's just conjecture.

Dude. Fucking awesome. And thank you for not dividing out Skyrim because in the lore Ulfric lost. I am writing a story based in the Elder Scrolls universe and this is EXACTLY what I needed! Please check it out some time when you got the chance!

I'm just realized that planet Nirn is very similar to Ace Combat's Strangereal.

If you show Elsweyr divided and Argonia having part of Morrowind; you should show the Empire, Skyrim divided, Hammerfell divided, and the Aldmeri Dominion.

Haven't played TES for awhile nor have I red the lore anymore in the meantime, but if I remember correctly, Hammerfell resisted Aldmeri invasions and their province is whole. The only division I remember of is the Redguard-supporters and Aldmeri-supporters which is pretty much what happens right now in the real world in Ukraine. Officialy the province is not divided but it is a boiling pot ready to explore.

Skyrim is not divided because a.) Both sides (Empire and Stormcloaks) recognize that province as being a whole, the only dispute is who rules it and b.) in the lore, Ulfric lost (which makes sense even thou I always fought for the Nords when playing)

Morrowind - Vvanderfell is indeed uninhabitable and that's why it is painted black (But, yes, there are some thing that I'll have to modify in the next version) like Vivec which is not a ruin as I thought it is actually completely gone.
The Argonians indeed invaded Morrowind but they only occupy the southern regions (as shown in the map). The rest of the province is still under Dunmer control but is pretty much a ruin because of the war with Argonia and the eruption.
Also Solstheim was given to the Dunmer so no, Morrowind is not completely gone.

Elsweyr is divided because, unlike Hammerfell, the Aldmeri dominion sucessfuly invaded and conquered half of the province and installed their own government there.
