Skyrim Gets a Live-Action Trailer and It Has a Dragon
Jeez, how bad would it suck to actually live in the world of Elder Scrolls? I mean, considering that you would probably not be some kind of bad-ass adventurer, but are much more likely to wind up as a Commoner, Henchman or City Guard — and in other words, dragon fodder.
I feel like the trailer below for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim pretty accurately depicts that it wouldn’t be any fun. Everyone looks unwashed and horrifically unhappy as they flee a dragon that is literally burning down their town. One lady carries a baby and you gotta figure that baby probably has about a 30 percent chance of living to be old enough to grab a sword and get cut in half by some demon/dragon/ogre/troll/bandit/cultist.
Also, the adventurer guy who goes up against the dragon doesn’t even bring a shield. I’m guessing he’s dead. I don’t care how “Dragonborne” you are, fire still melts skin pretty effectively.
