Elder Scrolls

The Elder Scrolls page looks to be fitting all of the requirements; I've already gone over grammar etc (And in that case would be nice if someone checked after me.) Article meets all the requirements of Featured Article as well, however, I'm quite sure it has to pass through GAN first (Hence why it's here.)

  • Voting-support Support – I'm no loremaster, so I can't guarantee that every portion of it is factually correct, but it looks that way to me. The bottom portion could use a source or two, but since it is the actual in-game events, I don't know if it needs any. Other than that, I think it looks good.

  • Voting-neutral Neutral – Just needs info from Loremaster's Archive and the Third Era section needs expansion The Rim of the Sky (talk) 23:31, June 15, 2017 (UTC)



Alessian Order

A very well-written and detailed article, it has many sources and excellent formatting, and is certainly long enough to meet criteria.


  • Voting-support Support – The article appears to fit all categories. Although more pictures would be preferable, I assume that there aren't many that could be used due to the cult not really being visible in-game, so I don't think it's something to get held up on.
