    Daggerfall is the second chapter in the award-winning computer role playing series, The Elder Scrolls and surpasses the standard set by the first chapter, The Elder Scrolls: Arena. Set in the unique world of Tamriel, TES: Daggerfall takes you on a special mission on behalf of the Emperor to quell a potential uprising in the royal court of Daggerfall. The player's participation in this major quest is not required: as in TES: Arena, the player may choose to follow any path or career in the vast, beautiful, and dangerous world. If the player chooses to investigate the court of Daggerfall, stories of madness, unrequited love, dark sorcery, seduction, betrayal, and a plot to recreate a powerful force from thousands of years past will be revealed. It will be up to the player to help the side that should wield such a power, for the fate of Daggerfall and the Empire of Tamriel hang in the balance.
    Thanks to the new, full 3-D, texture-mapped engine, TES: Daggerfall brings a whole new look and style to the Elder Scrolls legend. Special new features allow players to:
  • Explore a fully topographical landscape
  • Interact realistically with other characters, both in dialogue and action
  • Visit meticulously designed caves, castles, dwellings, highlands, and lowlands - even travel underwater and to alternate dimensions.
  • Own property, ships, crafts, participate in the politics of guilds and other organizations and trade goods and services - you can even smuggle
  • Create more unusual and powerful spells than the much praised, original TES: Arena SpellMaker
  • Face a large, new managerie of monsters and enemies
  • Create your own customized character class
  • Listen to the advanced, multi-channel, digitilized sound effects and music
  • Participate in an infinite number of large-scale, complex adventures
  • Create potions and magic items, as an extension of TES: Arena's SpellMaker

    System requirements:

    486/66Mhz IBM PC or compatible running DOS 5.0 or better;8MB RAM;2x CD-ROM Drive; VGA compatible graphics card; Supports most popular sound cards including: Aria, Ensoniq, Roland, SoundBlaster, and UltraSound;Joystick or Microsoft compatible mouse.
