Get ready for a brand-new Elder Scrolls adventure as part of the Shadow Over Morrowind storyline, announced during the 2023 Global Reveal!


The Daedric Prince of Knowledge, Hermaeus Mora, harbors and protects many secrets best kept from mortals and Daedra alike. Now, the One Who Knows’ most closely guarded mysteries are threatened by forces unknown and reality itself is at risk!

Beginning with the Scribes of Fate dungeon DLC pack in March, the Shadow Over Morrowind adventure tells an interconnected story across multiple content releases, including the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom Chapter and beyond.

While all of 2023’s major releases will tell unique stand-alone tales, each one will also build upon and expand the larger Shadow Over Morrowind storyline, including:

  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Scribes of Fate Dungeon DLC
  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom Chapter
  • Unannounced 2023 DLC


In the upcoming Scribes of Fate DLC, you can delve into two new four-player PvE dungeons and battle your way past the twisted acolytes of the Scribes of Mora in Scrivener’s Hall or contend with the temporal magics of Bal Sunnar. Each dungeon is set to challenge you and your team with Normal and Veteran difficulties (including Hard Mode) and features its own quest and rewards.

Scribes of Fate also kicks off the Shadow Over Morrowind saga. What you uncover within these dungeons will have consequences for all of Tamriel, so gather your most-trusted allies and prepare to dive into two mysterious and unpredictable adventures.

Scribes of Fate will go live on March 13, 2023, for PC/Mac, and March 28, 2023, for Xbox and PlayStation consoles.


Featuring 30 hours of all-new story content, the Necrom Chapter takes you into two weird-but-wonderful new zones. First, venture across the Telvanni Peninsula to discover more about the lore of the Dark Elves who call this part of Morrowind home. Then dive deep into the eldritch curiosities held within Apocrypha, the realm of Oblivion that the Daedric Prince of Knowledge claims as his own.

In Necrom, you become an agent of Hermaeus Mora tasked with investigating a mysterious threat to the Daedric Prince’s most closely guarded secrets. You must seek out lost knowledge deep within the heart of the City of the Dead and walk between realities to uncover a vast conspiracy powerful enough to endanger Nirn and Oblivion alike.

As you delve deeper into this forbidding conundrum, you can encounter new and returning characters, including a powerful Dark Elf mage currently working with Mora called Leramil the Wise, the fan-favorite Morag Tong assassin Naryu, and many more. Two unique worlds of colorful characters, stories, and challenges await Tamriel’s adventurers in Necrom!


Discover the Dark Elves of the Telvanni Peninsula and investigate a scheme that threatens to unravel reality itself—Hermaeus Mora needs mortal assistance, but can the Prince of Knowledge truly be trusted?

The Shadow Over Morrowind adventure begins this March with the Scribes of Fate dungeon DLC and continues into the upcoming Necrom Chapter. Keep watch for more information on about this new storyline in the months to come—we’re just getting started!
