A couple of nights ago, Imgur user Velorok was minding his own business, playing Prey at his desk, when a bullet came blasting through the drywall in his apartment. The bullet could have hit Velorok, but luckily for him, it was stopped by a copy of The Elder Scrolls anthology. Velorok documented the traumatic event in his Imgur gallery, which you can see in its entirety by clicking here.
Velorok’s copy of The Elder Scrolls anthology was sitting on his desk, to the left of his monitor. The bullet ripped through the anthology’s box, and was stopped in-between two Morrowind expansions. His copies of Morrowind and its two expansions were destroyed by the bullet. Velorok thinks his copy of Oblivion would have also been destroyed, had it not been for the fact that the disc was safely in his PC’s disc drive at the time of the shooting.
At the time of this writing, it’s unknown exactly where the bullet came from, but Velorok surmises that it came from the neighboring apartment, which is housed by people that apparently fight on a regular basis. It’s unclear if any of his neighbors were hurt during the ordeal or not, but hopefully the only thing damaged was Velorok’s wall and his copy of The Elder Scrolls anthology box set.
In the meantime, Bethesda caught wind of Velorok’s story and according to his latest update in the gallery, contacted him about what happened. We’re not sure exactly what Bethesda said to Velorok, but it seems likely that the company is going to replace his copy of The Elder Scrolls anthology, or perhaps do something even more special for him. After all, it’s pretty good press for The Elder Scrolls brand that a copy of the anthology literally saved someone’s life.
