I would've chosen some parchment but would see how in-game a burlap map would work. I'm still wondering if there'll be ease of modding for Skyrim as there were for Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Might or might not pre-order. I'd prefer getting my PC finished and then buying the 6950 2GB, unlocking to 6970, for top of the line gaming. I don't even think the integrated GPU on the motherboard would play this game nowhere near how I'd like for it to. Glad this time I'll only be purchasing it for PC and not console. For the burlap map, one could always coat it in something so it doesn't fray or catch fire. Oblivion won't even run right on my current computer anymore. Framerates plummet too much.
