Out of the deepest and darkest part of Reddit’s own r/skyrim board we have retrieved a fantastic collection of images revealing the entirety of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s manual. This set of 38 images broadly reveals the workings of this game and supplies the critical reader with a smattering of old and new information.
Among the notable new inclusions revealed through the manual is the “Brawl” dialogue option. This option, to be used for information gathering, represents a new alternative to the traditional info gathering techniques in the Elder Scrolls series of persuade, intimidate, and bribe. It also possibly represents a way to beat up civilians without getting defamed by those pesky murder charges.
Among other revelatory details found in this manual is the conformation of “hirelings”. These for-pay allies can be recruited from taverns throughout the world. According to the manual, “Each hireling has their own combat specialty, and you can give them orders. They can also carry items for you.”
Also contained within the manual are new details on alchemy, crafting, skill progression and the finer points of horse ownership. If you are familiar with the Elder Scrolls series I’d definitely recommend giving this leak a firsthand look.
