Setting the Stage Episode 13 – Sara and the Elder Scrolls

This week’s guest is Sara. She’s running her campaign using Savage Worlds in the world of Tamriel of the famous Elder Scrolls games. Sara’s game is set between the events of Elder Scrolls 2: Daggerfall and Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. The game takes place in Western Cyrodil near the heart of the Empire. A bandit king in the hills has found the Poppy Crown, an artifact of Sheogorath that has driven him mad with megalomania in exchange for the ability to control people’s minds. Unfortunately, long-term exposure to the crown has some side-effects.

Featured in this episode is everyone’s favorite vampire of Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, Janus Hassildor the Count of Skingrad. Additionally, Sara and I discussed setting selection and how to choose what’s best for the story you and your players want to tell.

Sara has her own podcast as well on the many elements that are important to storytelling. Check out the Storyteller Conclave at this link:
