ZeniMax has dropped some scant details of one of The Elder Scrolls Online's three playable factions: The Daggerfall Covenant. The faction is made up of the Bretons, Orcs and Redguards and are based in the provinces of High Rock and Hammerfall, the latter bordering both Cyrodill and Skyrim.
The Daggerfall Covenant is represented by the lion on the game's ouroboros logo.
"There is a lot of historical friction between the redguards and the bretons," said game director Matt Firor to GameInformer. "There have been a lot of little wars between them, and there has been as much internal fighting in High Rock as there has been with external provinces, but it’s a much more settled area and a little more peaceful. The Bretons have given the orcs their own homeland within their territory, and all three races like and respect each other."
"This faction is a lot more democratic than the others."
The Elder Scrolls Online will feature three factions, all looking to fight off the Imperial army and the Daedric prince Molag Bal. It will be released for PC in 2013.
