Cannot wait for this. Just occured to me that if you're playing the 'Dragonborn', won't that mean you're royalty or something? I'm sure Martin Septim from Oblivion was a Dragonborn too...they can see into the future or some shit.
Personally, i'm hoping for a new engine, and some kind of hardcore mode, like the one in New Vegas. Not that i want all the features from Fallout to be copy and pasted into Skyrim, but a hardcore mode would be cool.
Oh, and they need to put Dragon riding into it. Y'know, like swooping over a village and torching it.
The "Dragonborn" but I'm entirely unsure of. I'm waiting for more details as to what that means, though seeing as it's coming from a Nord narrator it could mean something quite different then the Septim line.
They are coming out with a new engine, and a hardcore mode would be interesting in such a fantasy setting.
As for Dragon Riding... I'm just hoping for mounted combat. And capes and beards (even though I'll be playing a female character, seeing NPCs with rockin beards in a Nordic setting would be awesome)

My least favorite race is the Nord....
But I'm optimistic that it will be as culturally diverse as Morrowind, where the majority of people are Nords and all races are everywhere.
Also... in the trailer they show a dragon... but I thought the last dragon died in the game Redguard.
Anyone know when this game takes place in Tamriel?
The Nords and Imperials are my favorite races to play as, and the Nords interest me the most culturally. But that's just me. I figure it'll be like Morrowind and Oblivion in that the majority of the populace will be natives of the province with a heavy sprinkling of other races scattered about. Especially in towns that cater to that particular races culture. (Edges of Skyrim will no doubt be populated more heavily with races from that particular neighboring province) I expect Nords and Orcs to be most common as there was talk in Oblivion of the Nords hiring Orc mercenaries to go to war with House Reddoran.
To the Dragon, the game covers their return as far as I know. That's what I gathered from the narrator.
The game takes place shortly after Oblivion, the gates opening across the land were mentioned in the announcement trailer as part of the prophecy of the dragons' return to Tamriel. Perhaps some have been buried or are coming from another continent, and the populace of Tamriel just believed them to be extinct.
