TESting Your Knowledge Wrap-up


In our penultimate Elder Scrolls trivia question, we asked you guys to answer the following:

What was the Yokudan name of the first batallion of Redguard soldiers that set foot in Hammerfell?

The answer, as it turns out, is simple. The Yokudan called the Redguards “Ra Gada,” which was eventually corrupted to the present “Redguard.”

Michael Mauro of Lancaster, PA was our big winner. Congrats to him. To the rest: you have one more chance to win on Friday. Make it count.

  1. [“Redguard” is a corruption of “Ra Gada”, not the other way around.
