The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.

The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.

The project is still progressing smoothly! Since we went public, there have been new additions to our team. We've got another designer polishing our exterior areas to fit the standard. Because empty large landscapes are a definite bore :) Here's some of his work on our forest areas:

We've also managed to get a talented composer by the name of Giliam Spliethoff of Elephant Ears! He'll be working closely with us to compose a score that'll keep you compelled during your journey in Druadach Valley. Other than that, we're still looking for people to create content for our mod! Have interesting stories you'd like to tell? Or want to create awesome exterior areas or interesting dungeons? Don't be afraid to hit me up :smile:

Skyrim at least feels fun with its archery, magic, large monster battles, dual wielding and smithing with lore consistent with what we previously knew about Skyrim. I did find the opening scenes too long and boring, thankfully there are alternate beginning mods that change the start of the game. The NPC's seem stiff and not interesting at all compared to Oblivion and Morrowind. Check out for very cool Skyrim Modded Videos for a list of Top Mods!

FIX crashing from various mods.

Skyrim is so f***ing addictive! This will fix various and infuriating crashes from huge overhaul mods, heres the video:

"For reference... Over-modded Skyrim, countless textures packs, large and small, NPC mods, NPC additional spawns, 194 plugins, 43Gb Skyrim dir. I cannot play without ENBBoost features because I reach 3.1 RAM limit on loading screen."

Skyrim's story of terrorizing dragons is very unoriginal and overused out of a majority medieval fantasy stories as it's been done many times before with minor differences.

I remember reading something about Bethesda losing their original story writer so whomever they had as the replacement was surely an amateur who couldn't even think of anything very creative which hasn't been done many times before, otherwise it's because they wanted an easier to create story to cut development time a little.

I can understand bringing back dragons for monster variety but not at the expense of a original story, Daggerfall Morrowind and yes even Oblivion had more original stories compared to Skyrim's, I haven't played Arena so I can't comment on it.

I don't mind if you wish to vote me down, I am entitled to express my opinion just the same as every one else is. :)

Oblivion had a worst story that centered on a deus ex machina at the end. It's at that point that you realize you were always an errand boy for Martin the true hero of the story. At least in Skyrim's you are the main hero and defeat the main boss by your own hand just like in Morrowind.

That being said, the main stories have never been a strong spot in the Elder Scrolls except maybe for Morrowind.

Nah, Skyrim's story is worse if you ask me since it focuses on the ol' cliche unoriginal dragon slaying story just like many older medieval fantasy stoies, Oblivion's story at least had some originality over Skyrim's, but Morrowind and Daggerfall had the most original stories in the entire TES franchise.

Skyrim is what Elder Scrolls is supposed to be. Gone is the flowery sunshine of Cyrodiil, and instead we get cold, barren Skyrim with snowstorms and people and environments that could really fit into the Middle Ages or a natural Fantasy World. As a person who's been modding ES since Morrowind and playing since DAggerfall in 1996, I can only see this game as a natural and excellent heir to the series. Take it from me - Skyrim is Greatness!

Some may claim I'm trolling, but I'm not. I seriously didn't find much entertainment value in Skyrim, and I'm glad that I was playing it on loan rather than having actually bought it. It's Oblivion with a new coat of paint and some better conversation bits. It still doesn't have much of a main story, and the sword play is still questionable at best (Kotaku's one writer said the same thing a few weeks ago). I could go on -- but I think this'll probably get voted down anyway so what's the point? Also…
