The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is considered one of the best video games ever released, gaining critical acclaim just after its publication and selling 7 million copies to retailers in its first week. Probably, it is best known for the memes that surround it, particularly the one with the arrow to the knee. Besides these particularities, Skyrim still has many more to offer in the terms of weird or unusual facts. To find out the oddest 10 facts and happenings that can appear in this game, we invite you to keep watching this video!
Naked couriers deliver you letters
Not actually the full Monty situation here, but some of the couriers might surprise you with their clothing, or more correctly, the lack of it. Wearing only a piece of cloth to cover their intimate parts, it’s a good thing they have a nice pair of leather boots to keep them warm. Besides the fact that meeting such a character might strike you as odd, you have to admit it’s also kind of funny to receive news from a half-nude, bearded guy.
“Took an arrow in the knee” is just a… line
Even though there are multiple theories concerning the origin of this infamous line, Todd Howard, Bethesda’s chief game developer, revealed in a Kotaku article that it was written by Emil Pagliarulo. The senior game designer just wanted to make the NPCs seem more real and thus created a discourse to make them so. As we know, viral content simply appears. It is not made with a clear intention to become a hit and the “took an arrow in the knee” meme certainly is the perfect example to showcase just that.

Wyverns are still of the dragon family, it's like saying a chameleon and a bearded dragon are not both reptiles. And if they didn't have 4 leged dragons then a whyvene would be the only dragon to be called a dragon.
They are not Wyverns because Wyverns can't talk, they are not immortals and they only breath fire. Dragons instead are immortals, they can talk, they use magic (Thu'um is magic), and they can breath more than just fire. So Skyrim "Dragons" are neither Dragons nor Wyverns cause they have the Wyvern aspect but also has every abilities that define a dragon
A symphonic soundtrack with a choir recorded by merely 30 artists is actually very few people involved. I would imagine Jeremy Soule used a composing software that allowed for a playback that is almost indistinguishable from a real orchestra and the artist countdown started when various solos were involved (odd soprano here and there, a harp tune, a violin or cello solo, a historical flute, etc.) If anybody has any information on who the musicians were, or where I can find that info, please reply here, I'm very interested. Also, if you know what software Jeremy Soule used to play his compositions, because there is no way on earth an epic symphonic piece like that with a choir was recorded by 30 artists unless he used a software like that to 'fill in' the 'orchestra seats'.
Wyvern are classified as dragons yes.
Yet it can be compared to Angels and Archangels. They looks alike and all, but technically one is ranked before the other. Same for Dragons and Wyverns.. Wyverns were the minions of Dragons
Goodamnit skyrim! I didnt know we could have had game of thrones themed game!
Imagine Nudity, furrys\dragons,... oh right mods, guess we got most of it anyway.
But still Would be cool to play in another fantasy world other than skyrim\oblivion\tamriel ect
Heeeellllllllp is there any way if you favourite your spells as left or right dpad press to swap back to your weapon and shield previously equipped, in other words ive got a mace and shield and press left /right to go to flames.... Now how do i go back to mace and shield 😣😣😣😣I've not played for two years and im stuck
yA KNOW I USED TO SAY THE SAME ABOUT DRAGONS and wyverns. But you know what? All around the world there are tales about dragons, and they are all diferent from each other, just because the occident-europe dragon has 4 legs and wings does not make it the rule and all the other invalid. Wyverns are dragons, chinese dragons are dragons, tiny, tall, all are dragons.
The fact that the dragons in skyrim are wyvern is debatable. Wyvern are small and only usually don't breath fire. Take a look at Smaug for The Hobbit. 2 legs, still is a dragon (the books version has 4 legs, but still, the movie Smaug only has 2)
