Recently, the Elder Scrolls Online has answered another round of questions from fans. If you are conserned with something about the faction and the setting surrounding them, it's probably been asked.This week's AMA continued to look at the Ebonheart Pact.It includes questions about meeting key figures, the legendary group of Nord heroes known as the Companions, differences in the content.

Characters that join the Ebonheart Pact will have the chance to run into Joruun the Skaald-King and other prominent figures like the Nord Companions if they make certain choices. The whole members of the Ebonheart Pact will have a chance to visit the Shadowfen and the Argonian city of Stormhold, which likely means running into the huge, reptilian wamasu that lurk in the swamps.

The Great House rivalries that players came to love in Morrowind will figure into TESO, although players won't (initially, at least) be able to formally join a House. Similarly, players who loved Skyrim will find that while the land is familiar, it's got substantial differences as a result of being about 1,000 years younger.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set 1,000 years earlier than Skyrim, so you may notice that some of the ancient Nord ruins are a little less worn and weathered than in Skyrim’s time. You’ll also find towns, like Nimalten in the Rift, that are gone and nearly forgotten by Skyrim’s Fourth Era, but are alive and thriving in ESO’s Second Era.

Argonian players interested in extremely reptilian look will be pleased to hear that character customization will allow for "much more variety than [the team has] been able to convey in the screenshots released so far."  For the full answers, hit up on the official site.
