Ted Peterson is a writer and game designer best known for his work on Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series.  Peterson was with Bethesda when they began the series with The Elder Scrolls: Arena, and was instrumental in building the fictional Elder Scrolls universe.  He was lead designer for The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, before briefly leaving the gaming industry to work in the entertainment industry.  More recently, he has had a position as lead designer at Savage Entertainment.  

Despite leaving Bethesda Softworks after the release of Daggerfall, he contributed in-game writing to their most recent Elder Scrolls games, Morrowind and Oblivion.  In all, Peterson has written close to one hundred of the in-game books that are found in Daggerfall, Morrowind, and Oblivion.

The name of the Daedra Prince “Sheogorath,” who has most recently appeared in Oblivion’s Shivering Isles expansion pack, was derived from “Theodore” Peterson.
