Damn, you beat me to it!

Speculation in the official forums have started; From vampire and werewolf quests to Daedric artifacts and realms. Dovahkiin looks dark. And I love those feral yellow eyes on him. And did you catch the arrows on his back? Or should I say crossbow bolts!

My personal betting is probably going to be vampires, seeing as Werewolves already have the Companions questlines and the primary focus of both Oblivion and the Shivering Isles was on Daedra. On the other hand, the name 'Dawnguard' does have links to Azura, and seeing as there was some interest stirred up when Skyrim wsa first released on the fact that Morrowind was featured on the world map model, I'd be willing to bet that we may well get a return to Vvardenfel. Plus with the crossbows (Morrowind weapon, of course) I'd say that that would be plausible.

I'm noticing a distinct lack of "A crowned Dovahkiin standing before the White Gold Tower, the Red Diamond Dragon personalized and imprinted on his chest." This displeases me.

EDIT: Also wondering if I get a chance to add some custom dialogue. I may just have to record it and offer it as a custom voice file on one of the Mads sites.

I bet PC versions are coming out way before consoles. Which is fine. I don't mind waiting, I've still barely explored Skyrim as it is.

...But I'm also very anxious to see something new.

Xbox 360 is going to get all Skyrim DLC first. Then it's PC and PS3.

I just hope this isn't anything dragon related. We had enough of this things flying around in the main quest. Hell, it was the main plot for Skyrim itself. And if Bethesda is indeed smart, they will continue their appeal to various people. I just don't see this relating to dragons considering there are many people who did not activate dragons in their playthroughs simply by not doing the main quest.

It would unwise, and pretty stupid, for this DLC to be Dragon-born related. People would have to go out of character just to play this thing. Bloodmoon, Shivering Isles, Knights of the Nine were all seperated from the main quest. Tribunal was tied to the main story about the Nerevarine, and it was assumed that the player completed the main quest by then. Though it is not revealed until the end that the player is Nerevarine(correct me if I am wrong, but Almalexia says something about the player being the prophezied hero). Even so, the player was not restricted to complete the quests even if they didn't even touch the main quest.

For Skyrim, I can't see this happening without the player having to touch the main quest to try and activate the dragons and whatnot. So to appeal to the people, I guess Bethesda will add a sense of variety.

As for content, I am just as clueless as everyone else. But in the official forums, everyone is pointing towards vampires and the Vigilantes of Stendarr. Dawnguard= Guarding dawn? Durr? I don't know. But crossbows, immortal Snow-Princes, glowing yellow eyes, talk about guarding the dawn which is when the sun comes up and leaked vampire feeding animations that was leaked points to a DLC related on something of that nature. I'm not those Twilight ban-wagon folks which go all lovey dovey on the subject, but I hope Bethesda gives a sense of variety to the players IF the concept of vampirism is involved. Not everyone wants to play as an "evil"(Pfft) character. With the recent influx of complaints about being too many "evil" quests and not enough "good" quests, I think Bethesda might want to try and add something that will appeal to those group of people.

Like the main game, Skyrim was revolved around dragons. Yet they added other things to do which did not involve those overgrown flying beasts. The same could be said of Dawnguard. But I see branching storylines, where the player is given a choice to join either force in the conflict. Same way the players had to choose between Hircine or the Skaal. Or choose between the Stormcloaks and the Empire or choose to help out the Blades or kill Paarthurnax(spell?). One recent rumor was that Lamae Beolfag is awakened and she has her own creations go into a frenzy and fight each other, while at the same time the Vigilantes of Stendarr join in and plans to eradicate both blood-sucking groups by helping out the player with whatever plot. Hence the crossbow and the new picture of Dovahkiin with the arrows on his back. But who knows? Anything is speculation at best.

Yea I agree, DE: no dragons! Please no more! I'm hoping to finallly get my hardcore mode toggle, actually. It'll never happen though. mad.gif

I'm thinking spellcrafting will be involved with the new DLC. I'd put money on that. It's definitely the #1 thing everyone is missing from Oblivion.

Ah....crossbows...Snow Princes...and Underworld/Van Helsing wannabe vampires. There are new files in the 1.6 patch:

Animations of crossbows now moved to folder DLC01.

Mounted combat with crossbows.

At least one type of crossbows will be unique with unique animation - Dwarven.

Child Crying.

New dialogue gestures:
Defensive Hand;
Hand on Chin;
Welcome Hand.

Coffin Puzzle.

Reading of the Elder Scroll.

Animation from the trailer of Dawnguard.

Scraping tree bark.

Transformation in a Vampire Lord!

Vampire Lord's kill moves.

"Serana holds Vyrthur". Of course Serana and Vyrthur are in-game NPC's (or something like that), but I have not found any mentions of these names in TES Lore.

Snow Elf Prince ascension burning.

Pour water in a way shrine.

Scooping water in a way shrine.


Here are the DLC entries:



So. We get crossbows now.

Dracula Beast+ Marcus= Elder Scrolls Vampire Lord?

laugh.gif It's okay! Don't worry about it. I happen to be one of those gamers who likes surprises.

...but I'm so tempted to read the rest of that list! I won't do it though.

Soon the Elder Scrolls will be reduced from a innovative world into a steaming pile of dung composed of state-of the-art metaphysical theories, brain-torching scientific formulas and tiresome theoretical hypothesis which mold a fictional world into an uninteresting mess of rocket science. It amazes me how professors are now interested in tainting a franchise, taking away the simplicity of it, only to further squat and defecate on our beloved fantasy and deem it 'interesting'.

Many people already want over-the-top forumas in the ELder Scrolls, going as far as to discuss genetics and the bacteria inside of a Khajiit's whisker. I hope Danwguard won't cater to these people.

You've been on the official forums too much.
