Battlespire is the first installment in Bethesda Softwork's The Elder Scrolls: Legends series. Set in the same role-playing world as TES: Arena and TES: Daggerfall, Battlespire differs significantly in that it's a more controlled, smaller environment with a definite end-plot and mission. You are a solitary trainee in the celestial floating citadel known as Battlespire where apprentice battlemages go to achieve Imperial Guard rank in Tamriel. Jagar Tharn is the familiar protagonist whose deal with the Daedra Lord Mehrunes Dagon thwarts you at every turn - in fact, his purpose is to either kill or possess all new recruits that come to Battlespire. Your purpose quickly becomes one of survival as you must fight your way through dungeons, windmills, dungeons, water, dungeons, taverns, dungeons...well, you get the idea. Unlike earlier TES environments that contained vast outdoor locales to wade through, in Battlespire you'll spend most of your time slogging through nasty, evil dungeons battling nasty, evil darkside critters and demons. Magic spells and items, weapons, armor, battle, slimy creatures that go bump in the night — all are waiting for you in the dark brooding fortress known as Battlespire. ~ Michael L.
