Think of all the lore that could be in TES VI.

What does a has-been Hollywood actor have to do with the ElderScrolls?

Seriously, the Basic Instinct guy?!?! Sheesh

Did he do any work for Skyrim? The books were lacking.

Gave Kurt the ideas for the renewed Dominion and Concordat apparently. A few of his works are referenced in Skyrim, and IIRC he wrote a lot of the lore that Alduin and what have you are now based on back in the day.

Anyways, keep him as a consultant, at the very least. I'm fine with Kurt using his ideas as he's done here.

Alot of books are reused from game to game. I believe many were written during Morrowind. Whether or not MK had anything to do with them I don't know.

Mr. Rebel would probably know if and how much of the books he's written.

I think they're definitely one of the strong points of the series, hopefully one day they'll create a game that can replicate the cities and people we read about. Solitude is so... underwhelming.

If the next game is set in Hammerfell, you can bet on Michael Kirkbride contributing at least.

I still don't know why he left BGS to begin with. I've heard a few things, but I'm not sure they're true. He did leave BEFORE Morrowind was finished, so there might be some truth to them. Anyways, I'm surprised he has stayed in contact with BGS for so long. Ted Peterson contributed just as much to the lore from what I've heard, but he's been completely gone for a long time.
