Wallpaper Image and Countdown Timer

Dragonborn Wallpaper

Bethesda has released a new wallpaper image, and there's a mysterious timer counting down to the first, in-game look at The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  The anticipation is almost too much to bear!

New Texts and Other Updates

Several new library updates have gotten overshadowed by the flurry of Skyrim information. 

First off, three texts by Michael Kirkbride have been added to the obscure texts section. There is the Dominion Prison Textract, a set of "Procedures for fighting the Tal(OS) Operating System." Up next is Shor son of Shor, an expanded version of the fragment released in World-Eating 101. Last, but most certainly not least, are the Five Hundred Mighty Companions or Thereabouts of Ysgramor the Returned. The forum threads for these three threads are still active at the official forums, and I encourage you to jump into the discussion. 

The translation dictionary has also been updated with the Draconic words released by Game Informer.
