Pod Power Extension Cord Lets You Plug All Sorts Of Stuff

Kate Vallen probably had so many gadgets with her all the time that necessity just had to step in and give birth to an invention.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Hidden Morrowind and Cyrodiil Landmass Discovered

The new The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game is already a massive world to explore and adventure in. But even more landmass has been discovered by a gamer in Finland, who travelled to the Southern-easternmost edge of Skyrim, Stendarr’s Beacon. Where he discovered a path that ends in an invisible wall at a stone archway, which theoretically would lead to lands of Morrowind.

To investigate more he jumped into non clip mode and ventured past the gate, and into Morrowind. As he progressed the textures started to detail down. But the discovery of the addition landmass, might indicate a new DLC that might open it up at a later date.
