ZeniMax has filed another trademark pertaining to Skyrim, and where as last month it was the shout Fus Ro Dah, this time it’s the term Dragonborn. It was filed on May 15 under goods and services, meaning it could pertain to anything gaming related or it was filed to stop people cashing in on unsanctioned t-shirts, bumper stickers or other consumer goods. Earlier this week, the firm sent a copyright infringement notice to the Dragon Shout app maker, and it’s worth noting that Dragonborn is also a race in Dungeons & Dragons, but we’re unsure at press time whether Wizards of the Coast have rights to the term or not. Thanks, Fusible.

Links for how he implemented the tech are through the YouTube link here. Thanks, CVG.

Skyrim hasn’t been out an entire week, and already the mod community is working day and night to create various patches, enhancements, and textures for the PC version. One of the neatest we’ve seen, and there are quite a few cools ones out there, is the map mod which shows you how to tweak the map in full 3D in order to zoom clear to the ground. PC Gamer said the result is a bit like a free camera mode that allows the player to “roam anywhere in the world” a bit like Google Street View. You can check it out through Skyrim Nexus, the video below, and look over a list of some other mods for the game here.

Back in February, Bethesda provided fans with a Skyrim challenge: have a baby on 11-11-11, name him or her Dovahkiin, and the studio would give the parents free Bethesda games for life. Today, it was announced that Megan and Eric Kellermeyer met the challenge when Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer was born on Friday at 6:08pm PST. How nerdily-awesome is that? Congratulations to the happy couple, and we really hope the little Dragonborn isn’t teased too much growing up.

If you happen to glance at the Steam Game Stat tracker, you’ll notice that as of this post, 223,174 people are playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at the moment.

Thanks, Kotaku.
