The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard is an action role-playing video game developed and published by Bethesda Softworks with a third person style, set in the world of The Elder Scrolls.

Redguard differentiates itself from the core Elder Scrolls games by being a linear action game played entirely in the third person, whereas other entries in the series feature a free roaming environment and a choice between a first- and third-person viewpoint. It also features a protagonist with a set name, race and set of skills, whereas the other games allow the player to customize all of these elements.

The game takes place in Tamriel in the year 864 of the Second Era, some 400 years prior to the events of Arena and the rest of the series. The story is about Cyrus, a young Redguard, who arrives on the island of Stros M'Kai in order to find his missing sister, Iszara, and subsequently finds himself in the middle of political intrigue.

At the time of Redguard's story begin, Tiber Septim had begun his conquest of Hammerfell, with the help of the Forebears (Redguards who have sided with the empire) and his Imperial Legion conquers Hammerfell at the Battle of Hundring Bay and installed Admiral Richton as the governor. With it began a reign of terror on the people of Hammerfell as Dram, a Dunmer ex-Morag Tong Assassin who wields the Bow of Shadow, N'Gasta, a Sload necromancer who had struck a deal with Clavicus Vile as he places the island under the influence of a Soul Trap and Nafaalilargus, a Dragon who serves Tiber Septim faithfully. All of them were instrumental in the defeat of the Hammerfell isles.
