Its the little things that count

  • Looking back on a previous post, about where you'd like to go when you start the game, I was reminded about the books I read in Oblivion concerning Skyrim lore, one such in particular was 'The Rear Guard'.

    Im not sure how many of ye have read this book. Its a funny little story about how a witty bosmer tricks the King of Solitude and the Count of Cascabel Hall using their own laws and customs to become the new Count of Cascabel Hall. It mentioned in the book how his decendents still live there to this day (although that was late third era and given the time gap, its around 367 years later by the start of Skyrim).

    I would love to see this fortress included in the game, whether it still be a thriving settlement or merely just a ruin of it former glory, either way I think it would be a magnificant symbol that Bethesda take their lore above and beyond, even down to the small details.

    So my question to you would be; what landmarks or points of interest from the lore would you really like to see and explore in Skyrim?
