This is the page for my second Elder Scrolls Online playthrough, for the character Marwyth of the Dark Elves.

I began this playthrough in May 2023. As with my Gyllerah playthrough, Marwyth’s run is primarily on the Steam Deck, but with action on the Mac if I want to run group activities with my Guilds, or if I just feel like being on the Mac instead.

Marwyth is not my first Dunmer character, and I was originally going to name her Merawen after the Dunmer I ran in Skyrim. However, somebody had taken that name on ESO already. So I went to Marwyth instead–which means this character is actually named after the same character in my Rebels of Adalonia books that Merawen was named after, since Merawen was that character’s original name, and she was called Marwyth later.

Marwyth is a stealth archer, an archetype I love to play in Skyrim, and one of my main goals with her was to get better with the bow in ESO. This has become Marwyth’s primary weapon. Also, I wanted to learn about the Nightblade class, and as Marwyth has developed, she’s shifted over from a magblade type to a stamblade.

I also do a lot of sneak with her, and shortly after I started her, I was able to buy the Thieves Guild DLC and let her join the Thieves Guild. So sneaking comes in very handy with her.

I was also gifted the Dark Brotherhood DLC, so that is now an option on the table for this character.

Marwyth’s Backstory

TBD. She may also already have a history of being at odds with the law in Morrowind, and possibly a bit of a heretic in regards to worship of the Tribunal.
