Ever since Bethesda Softworks released Skyrim on November 11, the folks over at Capane have been collecting the in-game books that are available to read within Skyrim and converting them into formats that can be downloaded onto e-readers and tablets. Within the files for the game, the books are all in plain text rather than encoded files. The people at Capane saved each book into a separate document, added headings as well as a table of contents. These files were saved in both .epub and MOBI formats. The .epub files are used within the Nook as well as the iPad and the MOBI format is used within the Amazon Kindle. Capane has made these files available to download for anyone that’s legally purchased a copy of the game.
In order to supplement the game, Skyrim fans over at GameBanshee have released a complete, annotated map of Skyrim available to download for free. Anyone seeking help finding a location in Skyrim can reference the high-resolution PNG version of the map or download the 9-page PDF version of the map to print out a poster-sized version of the map for printing. The map is broken into 96 grid squares which can be combined with the key on the Web version to quickly find a specific location via the alphebetical listings of the various landmarks, shipwrecks, villages, ruins, caves, farms, stables, statues and major cities around Skyrim.
YouTube users have been flooding the social video site with tons of Skyrim videos from methods to exploit shop owners through theft by slipping a bucket over the head of the NPC to videos about the various ways to die within Skyrim. A popular video posted by YouTube user HunterNormandy details 100 ways to die within the Skyrim universe and has racked up over 250,000 views in the past ten days.
