A nameless Dunmer needs your help

This is the story of a young and powerful Dark Elf, who is also an up-and-coming member of the Mages Guild.  He, along with the very best of his peers, was hand-selected by Mages Guild leader and founder Vanus Galerion to accompany you in the assault on Cold Harbor. When the mass portal to Cold Harbor went awry, these formidable Mages Guild members arrived, scattered over the icy wasteland of Molag Bal’s realm. Separated from their allies and you, their partner, the group was captured and imprisoned by Molag Bal’s Daedric army for use in torturous live training exercises.

The young Dark Elf is trapped in a cage with his fellow Mages Guild members. The imprisoned group is plotting an escape, but one, small thing is missing.

His name.

This is up to you in the newly announced “Name An NPC Contest” on the ESO official website. Visit here full rules and details.

Dishonored Contest: Show Us Your Killer Moves

We’ve already seen some amazing displays of Dishonored skill on YouTube. Now we want to see what you can really do — and we’re putting up a cool prize.

Starting today, we’re looking for the most creative power combos, the craziest kill moves and the sneakiest feats of stealth on YouTube. To enter the contest, simply upload a direct capture Dishonored video clip to YouTube — under 60 seconds and at 720p quality — by 11:59pm EST on October 31.

There are two ways to submit your entry:

1. Email us a link to your video at “bethblog@bethsoft.com” with subject line “Dishonored Killer Moves”

2. Tweet a link to your video with hashtag “#DishonoredKillerMoves”

If we like your clip, we’ll request your high-quality raw video file from you, so hold on to that. We’ll then include your footage in a compilation video and credit you appropriately, while the player with the most impressive clip will win a framed Dishonored painting (pictured here). Preference will be given to clips with music disabled, and direct capture is a must.

For all of the details and rules, click through. Good luck!
