Achievement leaks? Those happen all the time. Screenshot leaks? Yep, we get those. Sometimes even videos. But leaks of a game's manual? That's reserved solely for games that fans are going crazy waiting for. Case in point: Skyrim.

Someone has posted an image gallery containing pictures of the inside and outside of a supposed leaked copy of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's game manual. We were sent a link to this gallery as a news tip (thanks, Chase!), so we're not really sure where it originated from, but the pictures definitely seem real and believable. Still, consider it rumor for the time being.

The text of manual contains everything from a description of how to cook to some lore from in-game texts. If you're obsessed enough to be poring over a game's manual prior to release, then this is all probably stuff you already know, but maybe it will help cool your burning desire for a night at least.

My only question: Does the person who posted these pictures have a copy of the actual game? And if so, how do we track him or her down to steal it post-haste?
