10.15.11 The thread opens! :) 10.15.11 Due to the time it took for the thread to be moved, the deadlines for the contests have been changed. 10.18.11 Only two days till the first tektek contest ends! Only Scorien has submitted an entry so far, so don't forget about the deadline! It's an easy way to win 25k. 10.25.11 Congratulations to skeleghost for winning the Mage's Guild tektek theme contest! :) Skeleghost will receive 25k for his work. 11.03.11 Congratulations to Scorien for winning the Shivering Isles tektek theme contest! :) Scorien will receive 25k. 11.03.11 I realize that the voting for contests has been somewhat inconsistent. This is because of my schedule and when I get to use the computer. Usually I am always on around 6pm, so for now on, I shall update polls at 6pm. This means contest deadlines will change to the time up until 6pm on the day voting starts. 11.06.11 Congratulations to Eludya for winning the Art Contest! 11.11.11 Skyrim is released! heart 11.23.11 Morose X Marionette won 25k in this week's tektek contest! 12.10.11 Skyrim won Spike's VGA Game of the Year and Best Role-Playing Game! :D

This thread would be nothing without the discussion! How does the game compare to previous Elder Scrolls? Are you happy with it or disappointed?
What are you upset with in the game that Bethesda has done/announced they have removed?
Will Skyrim live up to the legacy of the other Elder Scrolls?
What new content do you love? or hate?
What's your favorite race?
Thoughts about the dragons?
Note that this just doesn't have to be about Skyrim! This is open to any Elder Scrolls game. I'm simply giving possible topics to discuss. Feel free to bring up anything! Including whether or not you think I should lengthen the time for submissions.
I would like to thank all those that made this thread possible. My guild encouraged and sponsored this event. If you are interested in checking us out, the link is here.
Also, if anyone is interested in a Skyrim roleplay, I was contacted by sugarspaz about her guild Skyrim - Way of the Voice. It just opened up for characters wanting to RP in Rifton. The link is as follows:
Our regulars also make this thread possible by keeping the thread alive and active so that new people can find and participate in this Skyrim fest. This includes:
Unfortunately, there are those that make the black list. Thankfully, there is no one currently on this!
I thought it'd be fun to have a mini gallery set up for any Skyrim artwork or mods anyone would like to share that they've made. If you have anything you're proud of or would like to show off, I'll be more than happy to put it here. :)
For starters, Scorien made a beautiful piece of pottery featuring an adorable Guar. :D
