Knights of the Nine hands-on at IGN

IGN has managed to spend some time with Knights of the Nine, Bethesda's first expansion pack announced for Oblivion, which is scheduled for a November 21st digital and retail release, and as always aimed at consumers not feeling bad ass enough.
It seems an eldritch evil named Umaril, an Ayleid Sorcerer-King, has started causing trouble again. More specifically, he's responsible for murdering the clergy of Anvil's chapel. After speaking with a rather energetic prophet on the streets of Anvil a questline kicks off sending you to nine shrines across Cyrodiil. Along with the quest you get a map that marks all the shrines' locations. Though fast travel isn't possible, the spots are easy enough to get to even if you're just starting a new game.
Watch out, Bioware and Obsidian. Bethesda calls your bluff and raises your four dungeons routine to nine dungeons!
