Maj rozpoczął się niezwykle gorąco - już w Święto Pracy Bethesda ogłosiła pierwsze informacje o DLC do Skyrim. Niestety, z dużej chmury spadł maleńki deszczyk - poznaliśmy tytuł dodatku (Dawnguard), zobaczyliśmy jeden jedyny obrazek promocyjny i dowiedzieliśmy się, że "kolejne szczegóły już na E3". Tak ograniczone dane nie przeszkodziły jednak nikomu w snuciu spekulacji i przypuszczeń, a część z nich - głównie te, mające najmocniejsze uzasadnienie - znajdziecie na na naszej stronie.

In early 2011, The Dragon's Trove had to chance to buy what is arguably one of the two most important collections of gaming materials every offered for sale, the one belonging to the late Dave Arneson, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons. In my opinion, the only other more important collection would be the one owned by the late Gary Gygax that is currently being sold off by his widow, Gail. When I was contacted by the owner Dave's collection, it was immediately apparent how lucky all gamers were that this collection was not lost forever. Because it purchased at a storage locker auction (that's right, just like on TV) and it was by pure chance that the new owner attempted to find the meaning of some of the boxes of paper rather than deciding that there was no gold or jewelry to be found, and just tossing it all into the nearest dumpster. Now, after nearly a year of careful cataloging and research by Paul Stormberg of The Collector's Trove, we are proud to offer this once in a lifetime collection to the public. Paul Stormberg is probably the foremost expert of this type of esoteric collection, and will be holding a series of auctions over the coming months to allow the vast assortment of items to find a home.
