Get a glimpse of Coldharbour and learn more about the malevolent Daedric Prince, Molag Bal’s plans for Tamriel—and your soul.
Coldharbour: The realm of Oblivion created and ruled by Daedric Prince of Domination Molag Bal. It resembles an apocalyptic version of the normal world, desolate, barren and filled with suffering. A defiled copy of the White Gold Tower exists, splattered with blood and excrement.
Zenimax Online Studios takes you into the realm of Molag Bal in their newest lore video, offering a glimpse to what the God of Schemes has in mind for the world players will venture into in ESO.
The main focus of ESO will be stopping the merger of Molag Bal's plane of Oblivion with Nirn (The players world, Tamriel being the main continent the games take place on) by destroying Dark Anchors, the giant hooks sent from Coldharbour to drag our world into his. But he has already captured many souls, players included, and you will also venture into Coldharbour to find your soul and why he has taken it.
Players may remember crossing paths with Molag Bal in previous Elder Scrolls games, most recently Skyrim where The Mace of Molag Bal was one of the Daedric Artifacts that could be collected. Carrying the mace created unique guard dialogue of, "No... get that accursed mace away from me!" or "That mace... Get it away from me, get it away" when it is equipped. If you added the DLC Dawnguard to Skyrim, you'll also remember the star NPC, Serana, was referred to as a Daughter of Coldharbour, which are females granted Vampirism in a ritual with Molag Bal, also considered the patrion diety of Vampires.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
