Game Trivia

  • The NPC Erik The Slayer is named after Erik West, who's online alias was "Immok The Slayer". Bethesda was so impressed with his knowledge of Oblivion that they gave him an in depth tour of Bethesda studios and decided to create a character based on Erik. Erik died of cancer in May 2011, and never got to see the release of Skyrim. The Tour of Bethesda's workspace was set-up by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

  • You should know that the saying "Arrow in the Knee" is a Nordic/Celtic saying that means Marriage, because when you propose to a woman you take a knee, and if you were shot in the knee you would take a knee. So every Guard got married and stopped adventuring.
