Knahaten Flu lasted over 40 years – How the Races of Lilmothiit & Kothringi fit into the ESO Timeline
I’ve seen so many people on the forums lately dismiss races who where mostly killed by the Knahaten Flu being in game (either as NPC’s or future playable races) simply because the Flu happened “22 years ago”.
While this is true, they leave out the fact the disease lasted for over 40 years.
“The plague began in Stormhold in 2E 560, and quickly spread to every corner of Black Marsh, killing all those not of reptilian stock. For over forty years it held the Province in its grip, decimating entire cultures (notably, the Kothringi) “
Pocket Guide to the Empire Third Edition – Black Marsh
Current ESO Year – Intro cutscene says year (2nd Era) 582
(Though some might say it is 2E 583 due to The Chronicles of the Five Companions)
So basically –
The disease started 2nd Era 560
We live in ESO at 2nd Era 582
The disease lasted for over 40 years
We are right in the middle of the Khahaten Flu.
Which leaves us open to experiencing the stories of its victims and its survivors, including –
Tribes of Men –
Kothringi (Blue/Grey skin Humans)
Tribes of Mer –
Beast Tribes –
Lilmothiit (Bipedal Foxes – think Khajiit but with fox features)
Diseases and viruses usually last a while – think about the Bubonic Plague which began in 1300’s and still killed millions in the early 1900’s (thank you antibiotics!)
And as for including these races in ESO, while it’s heartbreaking that we all know these races are doomed, the characters in game don’t know that yet, and must be actively fighting and searching for ways to escape these areas or help the afflicted.
Ultimately however, it depends how quickly it killed the people of these races, while the Pocket Guide to the Empire Third Edition – Black Marsh says it ‘quickly spread’ I haven’t found info on how quickly it kills a person I still doubt it would’ve killed off the entirety of these groups in 22 years.
End Note – Whether or not you like the idea of the extinct/endangered races (from the Knahaten flu) as future playable races or NPC’s in the game, the disease lasted 40 years and it definitely fits into our current ESO timeline.
Ladies and Gentlemen.

Summerset Isles is also rumored to be the newest chapter. Very exciting for us Altmer players, and the new non combat pet ponies are adorable.
Hope you all had a good Christmas & New Years. I’ve been playing much more ESO lately and have recently completed the Maelstrom Arena for the first time (Not Stormproof, mind you) and I’ve began doing Veteran dungeons daily. I Never thought I’d be into veteran as I accidently went into one in the early CP levels and am midly traumatised by not only the difficulty, but also my poor teams reaction when they realized their damage dealer was a noob! (oh dear!)
I’m CP 420+ now and don’t have trouble in Vet, so am feeling pretty good about it. I’ve also (somewhat) finished Morrowind & Clockwork City, which was really nice to return to and I am three Cyrodill skyshards & delves away from completing some major achievements with some awesome dyes I’m so pumped to get.
I’m excited for February as the new Outfit system will make it easier for me to make outfits to upload. Not to mention housing storage which will ease the pain of my overflowing inventory.
I’ve been thinking about ESO a lot lately, as I level more alts I’m intrigued about future skill lines, classes, zones & even races that might be added. I’m starting to feel like I’ve played so much of this game that I’m so eager for more new content.
Anyway! these are just some of my thoughts & experiences over the last year. I hope you enjoy my little blog and have as much fun in eso as I do! 🙂

First of all I’d like to apologize for my absence! I started a new job last week and have been busy juggling that along with the gym and my daily life. The new 6/6/17 Morrowind patch should be happening today and am truly excited! (Even though I’ve already had a look around when pre order came out!)
I suppose what I’m really excited for is the new Crown Crates, my pre-order crate gave me this cute little Shalk pet pictured above, isn’t he adorable?! A little blue mushroom bug- 10/10.
Also, I have more Morrowind themed costumes for Dunmer coming out soon and some Altmer posing as Chimer, which should be interesting.
