I knew all the time that Azura’s Watch was situated somewhere between Cyrodiil and Valenwood, but when I finally decided to pin-point its location, I made it move a lot farther out in Tamriel than I initially had planned. Now, we’re situated in the middle of the Abecean Sea, North West of Summerset Isle and near an archipelago called The Sestres. It is the perfect location for an Imperial Colony.
I needed to pin-point the location exactly, since I’m about to begin writing the historical texts and background information for the island. The location is intriguing; I guess the piracy on the island mainly targets Aldmeri shipping lanes, unofficially sanctioned with Imperial letters of marque, but kept under veils and hush-hush. Exciting! I wonder what happened on the island during the Great War? That’s going to be interesting to write about.
Also, the demographics is going to be interesting. I initially planned the island being mainly populated by Imperials in the colony and Valenwood Bosmers living as native tribes. The location provides for more diversity than that. I’ll have Hammerfell Redguards and even evil Thalmor Aldmeri to work with here!
Right now, I’m in the process of adding clothing items for the NPC’s. Proper NPC work hasn’t started yet. I also need to make a special race for the island, the Colonial Imperial race. It’ll be much like the Imperials, but they’ll look a bit different. I haven’t decided whether to make them playable or not as yet. We’ll see.
