You don't like Elder Scrolls as much as this guy
Oh, so you think you like Elder Scrolls? Think you're a fan, huh? Well take a look at what this guy did and then get back to me.
Reddit user and superfan "notadoctoreither" has printed and bound every piece of in-game text from Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and it's expansions into one, giant volume. He says the enormous 950-page edition cost him over $130 in materials including leather for binding, parchment paper and "ribbons and bits" for ornamentation. He says he started the project 3 years ago, but that it's hard to put a timestamp on how long it actually took to complete.
If you want a copy of the volume for yourself, he's uploaded the complete OpenOffice doc here for your enjoyment. His bound version, however, is not so readily available.
Even if notadoctoreither did hope to sell the book, it brings up the interesting question of copyright infringement and whether Bethesda would be down with the not-doctor's pet project; especially given their recent lawsuit track record.
Check out the pictures below for yourselves:
Pretty impressive, no?
