ESO RP Guilds to Join for Roleplay in Elder Scrolls Online in 2021 (UPDATED)

Finding roleplay in Elder Scrolls Online can be a challenge so we have made roleplay a little easier to find by putting together this list of ESO roleplay guilds you should join in 2021.

Roleplaying in Elder Scrolls Online is made difficult due to the players being separated into different instances of the game called ‘shards’.  Essentially, you may be standing in a tavern seeing absolutely no roleplay around you while in another instance there are roleplayers exchanging tales in that very spot.

Many recommend going to The Withered Tree Inn in the Rift for spontaneous roleplay in ESO, but the various instances can make that a frustrating experience if you’re not passing through at peak times.

Fortunately, joining a roleplay guild or two (or ten) is a quick and easy way to get around the problem.  Once you’ve joined a guild you can quickly join another roleplayer in their instance of the game by right-clicking their name on the guild roster and clicking “Teleport To Player” from the drop-down list.  Easy.

These are ESO RP guilds you should consider joining:

They are all OOC guilds, meaning that you can chat with the guild members “out of character” and arrange to join their roleplaying sessions in-game when you’re ready.

Have fun!

If you have an Elder Scrolls Online roleplay guild that you’d like added to the list (whether an IC or OOC guild) leave a comment below with the details.

  1. I think this website is ingenious. I’ve often wondered about other adult gamers and if they felt as isolated as I do. It’s refreshing to see I’m not alone. I’ve just reached out to a couple of guilds that were mentioned in your article of guides to roleplaying guilds. Here’s hoping I get some positive response. Can oyu think of anything else I might try in the meantime to find adult players in eso?

    • Thank you for the kind words. If you’re not looking specifically for roleplayers, there are a lot of adult gamers playing various games on the RedditDads subreddit (you don’t need to be a dad or even male to join, it’s just the name). If you post where you’re from, the games you’d like to play and give server details, you’ll have adult gamers messaging you on now time 🙂

      If you’re specifically looking for adult gamers who roleplay, try posting on ESO RP. They seem like great people.

    • Thank you for your comment. My first thought was “surely at least two of these are NA” but having looked at it, you are right. I have based the article on my experience and I’m UK-based. I’ll definitely look into some NA groups – if you have any suggestions of any to consider, please do let me know.

I'm a 35-year-old gamer, clinging onto the gamepad despite real-life responsibilities trying to pull me kicking and screaming away. I created GrownGaming to meet other adult gamers. Nice to meet you.
