Odd New Contest For Fans of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The latest news in the world of video games at Attack of the Fanboy
by William Schwartz

Pete Hines has recently offered up a strange prize to fans of the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Pete Hines of Bethesda has thrown down the gauntlet to those that are thinking about (or not thinking about) conceiving a child in the near future. An unknown reward is being offered up to any couple that is adventurous enough to name their child born on 11-11-11 (Skyrim’s release date) “Dovahkiin”.

A disclaimer from Bethesda

Any reward for completing this quest will not ultimately justify the potential teasing your child could — and probably will — endure over its lifespan. Bethesda Softworks is not responsible for your parenting. You may gain experience points for completing this quest, but you will not care at 3am on a work night. Completion of this quest may also result in decreased desire to play video games and/or function as a human being. Consult with your friends before embarking on this quest; while it may not start in prison, it probably ends there.
