Bethesda Offers Skyrim Baby Award

If you’re a big – and by big I mean eminently ardent – fan of Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls, you might want to put on your procreating hat – and take your pants off. In a post on their Blog, the company has offered an unknown reward for completing a real life quest.

That quest? Have your baby born on Skyrim’s release date – 11/11/11.

The ideal time to conceive, considering the average 260 day gestation period of humans – would be right about now. Go on, get to it. I won’t watch, promise. There’s more though; not only would your baby have to see sunlight on that particular Friday, you’d also have to name your ill-conceived precious bundle of  joy “Dovahkiin,” which means “Dragonborn” in the dragon alphabet – because, you know, flying, fire-breathing lizards put a fine emphasis on arts and literature.

If you think this smacks of potentially poor parenting, Bethesda agrees…which is why they’ve appended the post with  a lengthy disclaimer :

Disclaimer: 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.

On the one hand, actually doing this would possibly make you one of the dumbest people alive. On the other, it might be the only time hardcore Elder Scrolls enthusiasts get to have sex.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
