Nords As An ESO Race Option

Nords are part of the Ebonheart Pact faction in The Elder Scrolls Online.  This faction was created by a pack between the Nords, Dark Elf, and Argonian races.  The symbol Ebonheart Pact is a dragon.  The colors of the Pact are red and black.

Lore says that despite the three races hate for each other, the alliance was formed by necessity as they recognized the threat from unified enemies.  Players selecting this faction will begin in Bleakrock Isle after their escape from Coldharbour.
