Bethesda: Have a Skyrim Baby
Last Friday, Bethesda announced that the 18th was the perfect day to conceive if you wanted to have a baby on the launch date for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – 11/11/11. Of course, there is no exact science to figuring out when a baby will be born, so we’re going to go ahead and throw this out there three days late.
Bethesda’s Pete Hines even offered up what they’re calling a ‘casual quest’ that offers an unknown reward to anyone who names their child born on 11/11/11 “Dovahkiin.” For those of you who aren’t following the Skyrim info reveals, that means you’d be naming your child “Dragonborn.”
We’d love to be the ones to point out all the possible pitfalls of completing this quest, but Bethesda’s covered that with this precisely worded disclaimer:
In short, this is pretty much tongue-in-cheek humor. Still, will anyone be surprised when someone takes them up on it? I sure won’t.
