You've seen our coverage of the game. Now it's your chance to ask the game's director your most pressing questions. Next week, we'll be recording a special edition of our weekly Game Informer Show podcast focused on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Why so special? Bethesda's Todd Howard will be joining us on the show to answer your questions about the game. How might queries pass from your mind to Todd Howard's ears? Just type your questions into the Comments section below. During the podcast, we'll try to ask as many of your questions as we can, and see what he has to say. We've had a blast rolling out Skyrim information throughout the month of January, and our conversation with Todd Howard will be a fun way to finish. Needless to say, even after our intensive month of coverage wraps up, we'll be following Bethesda's big project throughout its development, right up until release on November 11th.

Well.... After the events of Oblivion, the island of Vvardenfell is destroyed... Here is a quote from UESP.. "In Vivec's absence, the Ministry of Truth becomes unstable. Vuhon creates an Ingenium that uses at first dozens of dying souls, then a small number of living ones to stabilize the rock. The soul of Sul's wife Ilzheven was among them. In a fight to free her, the Ingenium is destroyed and the rock crashes into Vivec with all the energy it originally had. The impact causes Red Mountain to erupt and destroys the entire island of Vvardenfell, as well as causing massive destruction to the rest of the province."
After this event, the Argonians invade Vvardenfell and conquer it. (typical of the Argonians and Dunmer to be bashing on each other) And since Skyrim takes place about 200 years after Oblivion, I think this time is long enough for the Argonians to rebuild Vvardenfell.
At least 20 years after these events, Umbriel, a floating city, appears on the coast of Black Marsh, heading toward Morrowind. The city of Lilmoth, Black Marsh, the home of Annaïg, is destroyed in the process...
And that happens 160 years before the events of Skyrim. So, since there's so much excitement going on there, I would expect at least some reference to Vvardenfell.
So... Todd Howard, my question is, will there be any expansion of some sort allowing you to travel to Vvardenfell?
***... I love The Elder Scrolls.
When dual wielding weapons, you can block right?
How many companions can you have?
Seeing as unique experiences is what Bethesda is aiming for in Skyrim, could you compare the character customization to Oblivion or Fallout 3? The player's character is an avatar, and a character that the player can really make different makes the game more immersive and enjoyable. I'd love to see how the character's hair color and length, skin tone, or physical build can be personalized compared to previous games. Thanks, and I'm really looking forward to Skyrim!
I kinow taht it's little late, but anyone know, if there will be special edition with some stuff to buy? In pre-oreder, there is only normal game, so i just want to know it...
And does anyone know how good my PC should be to can play it? About Graphic card and others...
This is probably the stupidest question anyone has ever asked you but here goes in Skyrim can you still loot people like you could in Oblivion.
How with mechanic will be somthing like Half life 2 like climbing the ladder, scenes? Because oblivion had only just teleporters on the use of such ladders or open barrels... Many shortcomings in animations and physics.
Will climb a ladder, opening animations, drums and things like that? Because in oblivion were always gaps in animation and sometimes in physics.
I wish I would have asked where Dragonborn come from. -_-
alright 2 questions 1st are the vampires on skyrim better than the ones on oblivion and 2nd if there is werewolves are they going to resemble underworld werewolves or twilight ones?
In my opinion being a werewolf in skyrim seems like it would fit much better into the game than being a vampire
Why am I here?
