Posted on May 1, 2012, Phil Hornshaw What The Hell is Skyrim’s ‘Dawnguard?’ Speculate With Us!
Hey Elder Scrolls junkies! Like us, you’re undoubtedly wondering what the hell the newly announced DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dawnguard, is going to be all about. So come randomly speculate about it with us!
We won’t be getting more details about the DLC until E3 2012, most likely, so in the meantime, we figured we could all sit around, drawing on the deep well of Elder Scrolls lore to take some well-reasoned (and not so well-reasoned) guesses at what the expansion might focus on.
Scans of Skyrim patch 1.5.26 suggest the DLC will likely include a character called the Snow Elf Prince, mentioned in the in-game book “Fall of the Snow Prince.” There’s also the town called Dawnstar in Skyrim that might play a role.
Here are a few other things we immediately thought of:
- Mythic Dawn, the Mehrunes Dagon-worshiping cult players battle against in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- The Dawnbreaker Sword
Another hint from the DLC image is the fact that the Dragonborn’s eyes are glowing in a sort of supernatural way. Now, it’s been a while since I played Skyrim (a hard drive crash ate my 60-hour PC playthrough and I haven’t had the
heart time to start back up again), but I can’t recall the Dragonborn’s eyes glowing. Could it be some kind of Daedric influence? GOD I HOPE SO.
What do you guys think? Bend your no-doubt insane Elder Scrolls lore knowledge our way and join the discussion in the comments!
