To avoid getting lost in the hustle and bustle of Skyrim's uber-efficient Fast Travel network, redditor Sylpheed has used his Adobe Illustrator skills to create the game's first officially recognized metro map.
Bethesda Softworks shared and tweeted Sylpheed's metro map a little over a week ago, giving the piece of fan art the recognition and credibility needed for it to go viral in the gaming community.
The Skyrim metro map is now available for purchase on Etsy for about $7. The digital download bundle contains four high-resolution images that can be used to print out posters as large as 30x40, according to the Etsy description.
"This is a highly detailed and geographically accurate map of the Province of Skyrim, created in the ubiquitous network map style first popularized by Harry Beck's infamous London Tube design," stated the listing.
Yes, modders have created just about everything imaginable for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but no, there aren't swarms of Argonian and Orcs downing coffee and nervously checking the time on their smartwatches as they queue up for the next train to Skyrim Central Station in Whiterun.
Skyrim's Fast Travel allows players to teleport to locations that they've already physically traveled. Time still elapses during fast travel, but the method of rapid transit helps to make the huge province much more manageable.
While Sylpheed's map is just a creative way for Elder Scrolls fans to show their love for the series' latest entry, a Total War mashup is enabling gamers to revisit the franchise in a whole new way. The Elder Scrolls: Total War is a mod that lets players engage into many of those battles the NPC always mentions during the games.
The mod is built on Medieval 2: Total War: Kingdoms, and it allows players to engage in turn-based battles. The mod is still getting some needed polish, but players can already select from 20 factions and engage in a hefty selection of campaigns.
The Elder Scrolls: Total War will live as long as there is support and demand from players, according to LoRdNazgu1. The game's first major patch will be released soon and it'll bring more of the series' iconic architecture.
