JIC, a scanned copy is included with the free release of DF at GOG.com (get by purchasing any other Bethesda game). Scan quality isn't too good but it's readable.
Military Arms are in the game, they just don't seem to differ from the regular Temples save for the building layout.
The Daggerfall Chronicles page from Bethesda's site (Wayback Machine snapshot) seems to imply that the book was their in-house product. Differences from the final release probably stem from the fact that it was written before the game was mastered in its finalised version.Interkarma wrote: ↑Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:38 amI couldn't say for sure, but my feeling is the author was likely handed some design docs or similar information to compile into book format. By the time game was released, some of the information was no longer current. Still an amazing resource however.
Do we have any Daggerfall historians or insiders around here that know more about the creation of Daggerfall Chronicles? It would be interesting to know more!
Apparently the Limited Edition (what the people who pre-ordered the game would get) included the hintbook which I assume was Chronicles. An interesting titbit is that game missed its planned release date of 30 August, and those who pre-ordered got everything except the CD with the game in their package (according to these newsgroup messages). The fact that the book was ready before the game's release also seems to suggest that the book was developed in-house.
