The Pocket Guide to the Empire is a series of pamphlets denoting the lore and traditions of every province in Tamriel at the time of their publication. They were printed by the Imperial Geographic Society. To this day three editions have been written. The second edition, however, remains unpublished.[OOG 1]

The First Edition was commissioned in 2E 864 by Tiber Septim.[1] These books came with The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard.

Second EditionEdit

The second edition was commissioned in 3E 331 by Empress Morihatha.[1] For unknown reasons the books remained unpublished.[OOG 1] At least one extract of the second edition still exists.

Emperor's Guide to TamrielEdit
