There are three Alliances in Elder Scrolls Online. When you first create a character, you must choose one of the three to join. Your choice of Alliance also limits which races you are able to play, unless you've purchased the Collectors Edition. Your Alliance will affect your starting location (after leaving the tutorial area), as well as the set of zones you will see at the beginning of the game. There are five Zones for each Alliance, in addition to 1-2 starter zones, which may be skipped if you choose. It is possible, once you've reached Level 50, to visit the zones belonging to the other Alliances, but these will be leveled up versions of them with more difficult opponents. The three Alliances are at war over the Imperial province of Cyrodiil. If you visit Cyrodiil, you will be facing opposing players from the other two Alliances. It is generally not possible to communicate directly with members of the other Alliances in chat, unless you know them by name or belong to the same player guild.
