Storyline

The story begins with the player's character in prison in The Imperial City. Emperor Uriel Septim VII, accompanied by his bodyguards, is fleeing from assassins who have killed his sons. By chance, Septim's escape route goes through the player's cell and you are able to follow them and escape yourself. During the escape, the Emperor tells you that he has seen you in his dreams and gives you The Amulet of Kings, an important heirloom. He tells you to find the monk Jauffre and give him the Amulet. The emperor is then assassinated. After finding Jauffre, you are told that Septim had an illegitimate son named Martin who is working as a monk in the city of Kvatch. As the only remaining heir to the throne, Martin must use the Amulet to light the Dragonfires that protect Cyrodiil from Daedra, inhabitants of the Daedric realm of Oblivion. Upon reaching Kvatch, you find that it is under attack by the Deadra. You enter the Oblivion gate, a portal between Tamriel and Oblivion, and remove the ... Written by Razor

Trivia

There are numerous references between all the Elderscroll games, including references forwards (Morrowind has books and characters who talk about Oblivion, etc). In addition, The Imperial Arena is based on the original concept of Elder Scrolls: Arena complete with posters based on the box art from the game. There are also several characters and items that reoccur between the games. For instance the blade Umbra makes an appearance in both Morrowind and Oblivion possessing two different characters.

Goofs

When the "Rumors" dialog subject is selected from a female Dunmer, the character will talk about a break-in at the palace. The spoken dialog matches the subtitles until the end, then the actress is heard to say "Wait, let me try that again," and the entire dialog is repeated, but there are no accompanying subtitles and the character avatar is not animated as if speaking.

Quotes

[first lines]
Emperor Uriel Septim VII: I was born 87 years ago. For 65 years I've ruled as Tamriel's emperor, but for all these years, I've never been the ruler of my own dreams. I have seen the gates of Oblivion, beyond which no waking eye may see. Behold, in darkness, a doom sweeps the land. This is the 27th of Last Seed, the year of Akatosh, 433. These are the closing days of the third era, and the final hours of my life.

An Absolute Masterpiece. More than a game: A Revolution.
4 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. What is Oblivion? I tell you now, Oblivion is more than a just a video game. It is a Revolution of gaming as we know it. Fun, open-ended game-play like none ever before experienced. A grand, deep plot, more expansive and in-depth than Lord of the Rings. A masterful voice cast, featuring wonderful, famous talents. Miraculous graphics- trees that look real and grow just as normal trees do with accurate geology, corpses and other objects that roll down hills and move with real-world physics as you grab them. A wonderful character creation system, allowing you do customize your character from the tone of his skin to the point of his nose to the puffs of his lips to the length of his hair. Fabulous creatures, from the wolf, to the horse, to the Minotaur, to the Daedra, all of them giving the feeling which they are intended. Grand cities, with stores, houses, churches, hotels... everything a real city would have. Revolutionary Radiant AI allowing all of the 2,000 NPC characters to think on their feet, and complete their own goals. Dozens of thousands of quests to complete: So many that the side-quests of side-quests have side-quests! This is a game like never before. A game which sets a new standard for all gaming, and truly gains dominion over all games previously released. I'd like to welcome all who desire to buy this game to the wonderful world of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, the greatest video game of all time.
