Thanks to Skyrim you'll soon be able to add "dragon slayer," "woodcutter," and "life-long learner" to your achievement list resume.

It seems that you can't be a triple A title anymore without your achievement list leaking onto the internet. The latest "victim" is the newest Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim. The list obviously contains some mild spoilers, but as is often the case with this sort of thing, they're rather minor.

The full list is as follows:

  • Unbound (10) - Complete "Unbound"
  • Bleak Falls Barrow (10) - Complete "Bleak Falls Barrow"
  • The Way of the Voice (20) - Complete "The Way of the Voice"

  • Taking Care of Business (10) - Join the Thieves Guild
  • Darkness Returns (10) - Complete "Darkness Returns"
  • One with the Shadows (30) - Returned the Thieves Guild to its former glory
  • With Friends Like These... (10) - Join the Dark Brotherhood
  • Bound Until Death (10) - Complete "Bound Until Death"
  • Hail Sithis! (30) - Complete "Hail Sithis!"
  • Taking Sides (10) - Join the Stormcloaks or the Imperial Army
  • War Hero (10) - Capture Fort Sungard or Fort Greenwall
  • Hero of Skyrim (30) - Capture Solitude or Windhelm
  • Sideways (20) - Complete 10 side quests
  • Hero of the People (30) - Complete 50 Misc Objectives
  • Hard Worker (10) - Chop wood, mine ore, and cook food

  • Master Criminal (20) - Bounty of 1000 gold in all nine holds
  • Golden Touch (30) - Have 100,000 gold
  • Delver (40) - Clear 50 dungeons
  • Skill Master (40) - Get a skill to 100

  • Reader (20) - Read 50 Skill Books
  • Daedric Influence (10) - Acquire a Daedric Artifact
  • Oblivion Walker (30) - Collect 15 Daedric Artifacts
  • Dragon Soul (10) - Absorb a dragon soul
  • Dragon Hunter (20) - Absorb 20 dragon souls
  • Words of Power (10) - Learn all three words of a shout
  • Thu'um Master (40) - Learn 20 shouts
  • Apprentice (5) - Reach Level 5
  • Adept (10) - Reach Level 10
  • Expert (25) - Reach Level 25
  • Master (50) - Reach Level 50

What's interesting about the list is that it's a lot closer to Fallout 3's achievement list than it is to Oblivion's. It also seems - and I'm assuming that if you've read this far you're not worried about minor spoilers - that you will have to choose a side at some point in the game as well. I really like the fact that there are rewards available for a wider range of activities than in Oblivion. You get points for exploring and tackling dungeons, for example, quite independent of any quest awards you might receive.

Skyrim comes out for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on November 11th.
