In five days, the Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind sees its full release. The MMORPG has been berating players with information from the expansion in order to keep our interest and one of the consistent bits of content has been the Meet the Character series. In a post yesterday, players got to know everyone’s favourite assassin, Naryu Virian, a little better.
The Morag Tong is a group of assassins not unlike the Dark Brotherhood. The main difference is that the Morag Tong operates through writs that give them the legal authority to take a life. Naryu does appear in the Elder Scrolls Online before the Morrowind DLC and there is a quest that surrounds her that many players see as one of their favorites. So, we know a bit about Naryu, but this new information comes to us straight from her college – Ashur of the Quiet Blade.
Ashur wrote to the Morag Tong Grandmaster asking them to allow him to work with Naryu. He describes how impressed he is with her travels, as most Morag tong assassins never stray beyond the Vvardenfell boarders, and then goes on for a number of paragraphs singing her praises.
She’s a warrior without equal, capable of cleaving her way through an army of cultists or nonchalantly slipping a dagger between the ribs of a single target with relative ease.
Any player who has spent even a small amount of time with Naryu can guess that she is not to be trifled with. This letter confirms that. Ashur even begins to list off the many ways Naryu has murdered someone and then stops short. The letter ends by sneaking in the information that Naryu is looking for an apprenctice, and reaffirming the fact that Ashur wants to work with her. It is clear that Naryu plays a big role in the Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind story, so its worth keeping an eye on her.
