The Fantasy Art of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Oblivion Gates and Random Oblivion Worlds

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a first-person perspective fantasy computer role-playing game set in a vast 3D world with an open-ended storyline that allows the player the freedom to pursue the main quest, side quests, or simply explore the world. The game is set in a different geographic location from the previous in the series (Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind) and in general the architecture and wildlife is more medieval and real-world. The fantasy game art is vastly improved, however, and at the time of its release wowed the world with its realism and attention to physics in its interactivity.

This Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion fantasy art / game art page has images from a graphically modified game. For an overview of the major changes, click here.

Shortly into the Main Quest, Oblivion Gates begin to appear in the game world, and persist until the hero closes them, or they are closed by completing the Main Quest. Most of the gates will lead to one of seven random Oblivion Worlds.

The general features of these worlds are more or less the same: blasted earth, sparse plants, crooked ruined towers and walls, massive bloody black claws, and a "Sigillum Sanguis"tower with the Sigil Stone that keeps this mini-world from collapsing into nothing. The huge gates are also reminiscent of Tolkein's Black Gate of Mordor, though on a smaller scale (but still huge relative to the Oblivion game world).

We have compiled various screenshots of oblivion gates and oblivion worlds, and have grouped them according to their UESP entries. The pictures of the Oblivion Gate as they appear in the "normal" world of Tamriel are typically from one of the 90 locations that gates can randomly open.
