A Reddit user has posted what looks like the final retail manual for the upcoming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Now, while a manual is normally grounds for zzzzzzzzz, in Skyrim's case, it's got information on stuff like skills, lock-picking and - sigh - encumbrance.

And if you don't give a shit about any of that? There are user interface shots, people. Menus. Inventory screens. Heads-up displays. The good stuff.


I've put the most relevant/informative shots in the gallery above, but if you want to see the whole thing, you can check out every damn page of the manual here.

On the subject, we got our first look at Skyrim's map yesterday. You can check it out here.
