The sketch book looks cool, but the statue is too kitsch for me.. anyway I already preordered the regular edition somewhere, so I hope I get the map at least. I'd really like having that map, even though the in-game map (3D!) looks neat too.

You know I wonder how they do it with the Gods. I mean in Oblivion they took a pair of Morrowind gods like Sheogorath and I wonder will Sheogorath come back. Because in the SI he turned into his true form Jygalag and you got the throne of madness. So if he will be in it how will they do it.
I hope they don't do this.

I can see it now...

The bonfires of Falkreath were just visible through the snow-dusted forest, off to the hero's right. Before him, in the ghostly light of the moons reflecting off stormclouds, the statue of Sheogorath stood in the cold night air.

He opened the sack, and three coconuts tumbled out. Contrary to the suggestion that they were migratory, these coconuts were an absolute pain to find here in Skyrim.

The voice came dancing through once more, filling the air and the space between the hero's ears. "You've done well, mortal! Now, for your rewardâ€" I've had this around for quite a long time, and I've been waiting for the perfect time to get ridâ€" I mean, bestow this on a worthy champion. Good luck! And sorry..."

The hero heard the tramp of footsteps in the snow behind him. The glow of a torch. He turned around...

"By Azura! By Azura! By Azura!..."

The residents Falkreath looked around in wonder as the hero's scream carried its way through the cold night.

I do not own this story.

Since in Oblivion:SI, you fully replaced Sheogorath in his functions in order for him to be Jyggalag again, I'm pretty sure if they do place daedric shrines again, there'll be one for Sheogorath and a quest to do; after all, you won't be playing the same person in Skyrim than you did in Oblivion. Actually that'd mean you'd be talking to your Oblivion char... :DD

Oh, and the Aedra and Daedra aren't Morrowind-exclusive deities, they're known everywhere, often by other names though. Here you've got a nice overview of how confusing TES lore can be :P. Gods in Skyrim will probably carry Nord names, idk.

Well I'm having problems with the gods. They day that Alduin is a enemy in Skyrim. But Alduin is the Nordic version of Akatosh so you would fight the head of the Nine Devines and therefore the Aedra.

Akatosh (Dragon God of Time): Akatosh is the chief deity of the Nine Divines (the major religious cult of Cyrodiil and its provinces), and one of two deities found in every Tamrielic religion (the other is Lorkhan). He is generally considered to be the first of the Gods to form in the Beginning Place; after his establishment, other spirits found the process of being easier and the various pantheons of the world emerged. He is the ultimate God of the Cyrodilic Empire, where he embodies the qualities of endurance, invincibility, and everlasting legitimacy.

Alduin (World Eater): Alduin is the Nordic variation of Akatosh, and only superficially resembles his counterpart in the Nine Divines. For example, Alduin's sobriquet, 'the world eater', comes from myths that depict him as the horrible, ravaging firestorm that destroyed the last world to begin this one. Nords therefore see the god of time as both creator and harbinger of the apocalypse. He is not the chief of the Nordic pantheon (in fact, that pantheon has no chief; see Shor, below) but its wellspring, albeit a grim and frightening one.

From the book Varieties of Faith in the Empire

I'm not quite sure either how this whole thing will develop, but it seems at least that the Akatosh manifestation from Oblivion and the Alduin in Skyrim aren't the exact same being. Thanks to you, I didn't think of that before.
