The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was announced a month ago with a dramatic trailer that left plenty to the imagination as few details were given, other than dragons will most likely be in it. Game Informer's February Issue will feature more information on Skyrim in the form of a cryptic poem written in the "tongue of dragons," a language created by Bethesda* for the game. The Game Informer article states the language will play an "integral role in the story and gameplay of the upcoming epic, and introduces an intriguing new facet to the Elder Scrolls mythology."
Here's the poem before translation.
NAAL OK ZIN LOS VAHRIIN
WAH DEIN VOKUL MAHFAERAAK AHST VAAL
AHRK FIN NOROK PAAL GRAAN
FOD NUST HON ZINDRO ZAAN
DOVAHKIIN FAH HIN KOGAAN MU DRAAL
AHRK FIN KEL LOST PRODAH
DO VED VIING KO FIN KRAH
TOL FOD ZEYMAH WIN KEIN MEYZ FUNDEIN
ALDUIN FEYN DO JUN
KRUZIIK VOKUN STAADNAU
VOTH AAN BAHLOK WAH DIIVON FIN LEIN

A reddit user deciphered this.
By his honor is sworn
To keep evil forever at bay
And the fiercest foes rout
When they hear triumph's shout
Dragonborn for hunger blessing we pray
And the scrolls have fortold
Of black wings in the cold
That when brothers wage war come unfurled
Alduin, bane of kings
Ancient shadow unbound
With a hunger to swallow the world
This probably isn't enough information to keep Elder Scrolls fans satisfied as they patiently wait for Skyrim but it does let us know more about one of the game's main obstacles, an evil dragon who wants to eat the world. According to the Elder Scrolls wiki he can also control time by flying at 88 miles per hour. I made that last part up but Bethesda hasn't denied it.
