Hearthfire, the New Skyrim DLC

Updated on August 12, 2016

2920, vol 09 - Hearth Fire

The new DLC for Skyrim: Dawnguard is set to release during the summer and people couldn’t be more excited. It is speculated that this game will include Vampires, Crossbows, and possibly the fabled Snow Prince. The game is being kept under wraps until E3.

With Dawnguard only right around the corner it is curious that Zenimax has already been caught filing a trademark for the name “Hearth Fire”. According to Fusible.com “’Hearth Fire’ appears to be a reference to the skill book “2920, vol 09 – Hearth Fire” in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.” Skill books, as we all know, grant the player a boost to a certain skill. This book in particular grants you a bonus to the Conjuration skill. Since we know that the Conjuration skill is behind summoning undead creatures and making ghostly weapons appear for a limited time, a lot of speculation is going into why the company trademarked this book. Fusible.com also stated that “Hearth Fire [also known as Heartfire] is also the ninth of twelve seasons in the Elder Scrolls Universe.”

This leads us to believe that though it might be DLC for Skyrim, it might also be something new entirely. With Zenimax working on Elder Scrolls Online I highly doubt this to be a new game though. My bet is that it is DLC for Skyrim. As of right now they’re not releasing any information about Hearth Fire. All we can do is wait for E3 where they will be releasing more information on Dawnguard.

On a final note, it has also been released that along with trade marking “Hearth Fire”, Zenimax trademarked “Fus Ro Dah” and “Dragonborn”.

      Ha! I love physics too. And it is probably the best shout to turn to stardom. And the easiest.

      Not to mentions the results that Fus Ro Dah produces has such strong potential to be hilarious. There's nothing like sending a Forsworn hurtling off a cliff, flailing wildly about. I just love ragdoll physics.

      Oh man that's awesome. What an epic name to have! And I think Fus Ro Dah became more famous because it is your first shout. But yes that shout is better. I agree. If I ever feel like wasting time I go to youtube and watch all the Fus Ro Dah videos. It always makes me laugh.

      I think the reason Fus Ro Dah was trademarked over other shouts is because I don't see many videos where people are running around shouting "Yol Toor Shul!" which I think sounds far more impressive. Though Fus Ro Dah is iconic now of Skyrim or the Dragonborn. Did you hear about the boy who was named Dovahkiin, being born on 11-11-11. Bethesda tossed him free games for life, if I remember correctly.

      Yeah I laughed when I saw that they had trademarked them. Too funny especially since so many people have been using Dragonborn and Fus Ro Dah.

      Love that final point there, "they trademarked Fus Ro Dah" and "Dragonborn", like they were the first to do so. I can't believe they haven't bothered trade-marking previous shouts, and even.... trademarked the word Dragonborn which is still currently being used in fiction worldwide? Wow.

      Great article anyways, looking forward to a DLC based on a book. No kidding, I loved the skillbook expansion for Oblivion. If only there was more to read in them though.... ^^
