Standing Stones Edit
Here's the explanation, guys.
The first three you find in the game are called "The Guardian Stones" named so because of the Guardian star signs from previous games. These are the Warrior, the Mage, and the Thief. A book in Skyrim called "An Explorer's Guide to Skyrim" names them as standing stones. Only the first three that hadvar/ralof shows you are the guardian stones just check the uesp wiki.
In my game they are called Guardian Stones.--Milo v3 12:41, November 11, 2011 (UTC)
They are shown as Guardian Stones when I interact with them as well. However, Bethesda used Standing Stones in the acheivement/trophy descriptions. The discrepancy is probably just a typo or programming error on Beth's part. Best solution here is probably just to make a redirect page for Standing Stones to come to this page until if/when Bethesda makes an in game correction and consensus on the true name is reached.

*** I would recommend calling them "Standing Stones". According to the in-game book The Firmament, The only star signs referred to as "Guardians" are the Warrior, Mage, and Thief. http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/The_Firmament

I agree they should be called "Standing Stones". All the relevant load screen tips refer to them as "Standing Stones" as well as the Achievements and in-game books mentioned above. The only in-game instance of the term Guardian Stones I have seen is the specific group (Thief/Mage/Warrior Stones) which are typically the first stones encountered and are labeled as the Guardian Stones on their map icon. I believe that is where the confusion originated. The fact that this unique group of stones has the name Guardian Stones also supports the idea that it is not the name of all the stones but only that group.184.108.40.206 07:54, January 2, 2012 (UTC)Rich Swanson220.127.116.11 07:54, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
The dude/dudette above me is right. The Thief, Mage and Warrior Stones are called the Guardian Stones and all of the stones are called Standing Stones. This page needs to be retitled and perhaps a new page created just for the Guardian Stones. djAMPnz 20:08, February 16, 2012 (UTC)
"The" ______ StoneEdit
So I noticed that there are several pages for most of the stones mentioned on this page. For example:
I'm not sure how to add re-directs but someone might want to do that. Or the other pages could be deleted or whatever.
And for what it's worth... when I want to search for something like The Shadow Stone, I typically will omit the "The" (typing only "Shadow Stone"). My vote would be to get rid of the "The".
Red X's? Edit
It says all 13 stones are marked with a red X on the physical map. This may be so, but there are many in locations that do not match the X's
- The red 'x' are just as a guideline really, and the game as a bug where it will count more stones then there are in the game. 30px LeeVEGETA talk 11:54, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
I think this page should be added to the top menu bar. Took me awhile to find this page since I couldn't remember what they were called (was thinking star stones, although I know that didn't sound right). Adding it to Skyrim/World tab would make since to me. Saith89 (talk) 05:01, April 7, 2012 (UTC)
The Lord Stone hyperlink redirects to the Standing Stone for Oblivion. Fix pl0x.
