The location of Bethesda's Elder Scrolls 6 is a much debated issue. For a long time, Argonia was the land that a lot of players felt the developers would take the next instalment to. There are still plenty of lands left within Tamriel that we could explore after the awesome Skyrim. Naturally, they will have to surpass the grandeur of Elder Scrolls V, therefore, could it be set in Akavir?
Akavir is a violent continent located some 4,000 kilometres off the eastern coast of Tamriel. There have been a great deal of tales and legends surrounding these lands, and in fact the name is directly translated as "Dragon Land". Could Akavir be the ideal location for The Elder Scrolls 6?
Bethesda's Elder Scrolls 6 Location: Akavir
Akavir is the homeland of four collective races, none of which are related to one another. Collectively, they are referred to as the "Akaviri". The inhabitants are Snow Demons of Kamal, the Serpent-Men of Tsaesci, the Monkey People of Tang Mo and the Tiger Dragons of Ka'Po'Tun. The Tamreilic people never make the effort to venture to these brutal lands, fearing both the continent itself as well as the vast sea that separates them.
The Tsaesci are among the most infamous of the races that inhabit these lands. They have launched an armada of attacks on Tamriel in the past and are believed to have played a large role in the wiping out of the humans that used to share Akavir. Allegedly they were continuously attacked by the Tsaesci and eventually eaten into extinction. A brutal land indeed.
The latest contact with Akavir was attempted by the Nerevarine, who supposedly launched a trip to Akavir after defeating Dagoth Ur. Not much is known of the voyage. Tamriel has indeed had a tumultuous history with these lands. Akavir has been an important player in the balance of peace and war over the centuries and personally, I think it'd be fascinating to journey to these violent shores to learn about its history.
Elder Scrolls 6 would certainly be a game changer for the series if it was to move to the lands of the Dragons. The loss of these creatures after Skyrim would feel a little underwhelming following the Dovahkiin's campaign, and the violent lands of this unknown continent would present a great challenge for players.
So what do you think Elder Scrolls fans? Should Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls 6 follow the likes of The Elder Scrolls Online and move to Summerset Isles, or try somewhere else like Argonia? Would Akavir be more suited to a location that we can simply travel to, or could it be its own instalment for Elder Scrolls 6? Let us know in the comments!
