Found a Daedric shrine - Assurnabitashpi, only it's called Ashurnabitashpi
on the world map. Just goes to show the players aren't the only ones who
get confused by these long tongue-twisting similar-sounding names...

....And damned if Mr. Hoffman's threads won't get killfiled if he posts one
more article describing a miniscule spelling or grammar error in the game.

Hey I just thought it was funny, so many people complain that they can't
keep all the names straight, well it turns out we're not the only ones.
Anyhow, this is only the second post I've done like that. I swear I'll stop
now.

Gotta wonder how they ended up programming with 2 different names?
Might explain all the bugs and crashes though.

Then again, you could call me Assanurbithsabbi, or you could call me
Asinabbarattibootie, or maybe Assurnubbiboppalula....................
