it looks like everybody uses that joke.

mow In TIE lint:
But, do YOU know what it means?
the phrase was placed in the
game as an allusion to Oblivion.
As you should know, in Oblivion,
there were those Greaves, see?
In Skyrim, there aren' t any Greaves,
that means: NO KNEE ARMOR! And
because of this, the guard took an
arrow to the knee.

I found a guy in Falkreath I believe, who said that he used to be an adventurer until he took a sword to the chest. I was just like damn this guy should be made Captain of the Guard

you do realize greaves are included in armor right? chest plates and greaves are one piece in skyrim, you still have knee protection, HUURRRR DUURRRR

Now explain why Bethesda has so many references to sweet rolls.

i skipped this but i just had to come back and pinkie down... its not an allusion because plenty of armor in the game has visual knee armor, im pretty sure they simplified all of the armor to appeal to a wider audience with a simpler interface design

Is it just me or do some of the guards sound like Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Then what about the guy in Windhelm that says "I used to be the greatest warrior in the stormcloak army, then I took a asord to the chest."?

its not necessarily a reference to oblivion, seeing as greaves are included in with this rather common item named, oh yknow, ARMOR. ANY AND ALL ARMOR.

i don't know if anyone else noticed this, one of the guards asks "let me guess some one stole your sweet roll" that's a reference to fallout 3 where you get a sweet roll on your birthday and Butch takes it from you depending on what you say to him

actually you are completely wrong, in the iga interview with the skyrim team, they actually said that when they put the line in, they "were trying to make the guards have more personality and react to you" it wasnt intended as a joke or anything related to any other elder scrolls games, just an attempt to give the guards more depth and personality

well i dont think so because the oblivion game took place about 200-300 years earlier so this guy just sucks as an adventurer
