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.

About Ice and Fire: Bear island with 1 comment by XMercury on Aug 14th, 2015

Greycliff is a village at the north-west of the island, founded by a wealthy farmer Lothar twenty years before the player arrives to the island.

There were ten peaceful years when wildlings stopped their attacks; there were few of them who landed on the island from the north that time. Lothar had offered Jior Mormont, who was the lord of the Bear Island that time, to build a fortress right at the most dangerous north-western site where wildlings used to land in the past. Jior agreed and permitted him to gather men for this purpose. Near thirty man came with Lothar: hunters, who were attracted to the fjords full of fowl, fishermen, who hoped to get more fish at the new place, builders, some of which arrived from the mainland.

Lothar`s plan was truly ambitious. The place where he decided to make a fort was a cliff that stood separate from the land, and there was no way to get there without a bridge built.

With builders` help his people had finished the bridge and finally Lothar had settled on a top of the cliff. Most of the folk did build their houses at the other side. The village was called Greycliff.

They have fortified the cliff and the only broad path to the village. Now there lies a road to a small harbour where ships from the eastern side of the island anchored to bring goods and supplies.

The weather in this place is the most harsh on the island. Using a bathhouse helped Lothar`s people to warm up even in the coldest times.

New lands had justified Lothar`s hope: he was getting richer with every ship that came to Greycliff, selling fish, meat and hides. He had even started to dream about building a full-stone castle at the place one day. Greycliff seemed to be absolutely impregnable.

But one night, peaceful days had come to an end. Something at the north had made wildlings to migrate from their homes. Some of their best Wall climbers, mostly Thenns, came stealthy at the island and when the darkness had fallen, they had climbed atop of the cliff. They had killed sleeping men in the main fort and after a small fight they took control after Greycliff and started devastating its warehouses and kaleyards.

Soon more wildlings arrived to the island, but there was no one to detect them and they`ve spreaded over the western part of the Bear Island without anybody knowing.

After a few days your ship arrives, but there is still nobody in Mormont Estate knowing about the incident.

A player will have the opportunity to take part in the siege of the Greycliff or make a sneaky way in and backstab a wildlings` leader.

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…
