Also just on the subject of skyrim. does anyone else notice that during a playthru ceritan spots are more likely to have a dragon as a random encounter than others? for example my first time around there would always be one waiting at the Mages college That was bitch since I'd have to got to the top of the towers 90% of the time to either kill it or get my loot another time it was the Windhelm docks that would be the spot (always a HUGE pain in the ass when coming back from solstheim to see a ******* dragon out of nowhere).
User avatar #109 to #92 - sirwolfcat (05/13/2014) [-]
Those spots you mentioned have dragon burials around so yes they would be the place you'd most likely fight some dragons.
#110 to #109 - isuriand ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
The college and windhelm's docks have burial sites close by? I did not know that; but that's useful to know.

Hello, you have reached the office of the Nine Divines. The divinity you are trying to contact, TALOS, is currently busy. The reason for his absence is HOLDING NIRN TOGETHER SO NAZI ELVES CAN'T RUIN THAT **** . If you have pressing business, please press one to leave a message, press two for a blessing that is useful to exactly one person in the entirety of Tamriel, if you would like to speak to another Divine, please stay on the line and your call will be transferred to the nearest god suited to your species. In the event you hear a man with a Scottish accent pick up, hang up and burn your phone immediately. Otherwise, you'll probably cram it up your ass and go streaking or something, the last guy sodomized a Horker before he snapped out of it.

It is they banned talos so the stormcloaks would be discouraged or something
User avatar #9 to #3 - thisxshitxisxhard (05/13/2014) [-]
this has decided how the war will go in my current skyrim playthrough
User avatar #26 to #9 - thepandaking (05/13/2014) [-]
In case you mean you're going to side with Stormcloaks because of this, Just gonna throw my 2 septims in and say that logically, the Imperial Legion is the way to go if you want to role play a playthrough that could eventually over-take the Thalmor.
The Thalmor want the Stormcloak rebellion to continue, and they even want them to gain momentum, because that divides Tamriel but especially Skyrim, and makes sure that the Empire doesn't have a fighting chance against the Thalmor. If the Stormcloaks win, there will be a rift betwixt Skyrim and Cyrodiil, and it'll be a much weaker force if it is ever to try to start a Second Great War.
TL;DR by the nine, do the right thing and fight for the Empire
just note that the Imperials don't care about Talos, it's just the White Gold Concordat that they were forced to sign that makes it law. Only the Thalmor Judiciars actually enforce that law though.

FOR THE EMPEROR

Not exactly. Yes the Thamlor want the civil war to continue in skyrim; EXACTLY AS IT WAS WHEN YOU ARRIVED. A unified skyrim under any banner is not what they are looking for. They want imperial and nordic blood to be shed for decades in the north with the end result being either a stalemate (and a divided skyrim) or for it just to keep going until they arrive with their own armies. Even more so then division they want the empire to weaken itself, to bleed white before they come in to finish what they started during the first war. Remember the rich dude in riften's bee and barb that just drinks all day lamenting his daughter's death? How he would NEVER raise a sword for the Imeprials? That's the Ideal situation for them. Even if the stormcloaks won skyrim they might help the empire against the elves. If the war breaks out again between the empire and the Thamlor while skyrim is still up in arms, Would the nords help? not while their own farms are being torched by the legions.

I fight for the empire too, but the point you were making was a bit off.
User avatar #123 to #82 - thepandaking (05/14/2014) [-]
well the only think I said differently is that they might even want the stormcloaks to gain momentum, and that's just a personal theory, since I really feel like that's their best bet, sure a stalemate is the ideal situation, but if the stormcloaks win there's a big chance they wouldn't be able to fight along side the empire as effective as they would if they were all unified by the empire. That's just my opinion, but it's pretty sure that men on the same side would fight better along side each other against the Thalmor
User avatar #117 to #82 - theshadowed (05/13/2014) [-]
Actually they would support Skyrim winning. This would encourage the other provinces to break away leaving the Empire weak enough for hostilities to be re=opened and won easily
#118 to #117 - isuriand ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
No. remember hammerfell? they broke away; and kicked the aldemri Dominion out (or at least fought them to a standstill that the truce they signed left hammerfell alone). it's mention in the dossier on Ulfric stormcloak that they don't want the war to end. Here follow this link and read it for yourself www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Thalmor_Dossier:_Ulfric_Stormcloak

User avatar #125 to #118 - theshadowed (05/14/2014) [-]
Hammerfell only kicked the Dominion out because of their desert, lets be honest. Same for the Arabs in the Crusades, and the Dornish in GoT. They may not want the war to end, but if it was ended, they would prefer a divided front of humanity, not a single empire. Thats just plain common sense
#126 to #125 - isuriand ONLINE (05/14/2014) [-]
Most of the redguard cities are along the edge of the desert; you know that right? but back to skyrim and the empire while I suppose a stromcloak victory would not be viewed as horrible for the thamlor that's not what the thamlor looking for. A Stormcloak skyrim is a skyrim that HATES the elves. no matter how bad it goes they would be than willing to help the empire knock around a few pointy ears. So... No the Thamlor Ideally don't want an independent skyrim, they want a skyrim that's fighting itself! for ***** sake did you even red the link i posted?
User avatar #129 to #126 - theshadowed (05/14/2014) [-]
Quoting your goddamned link back at you 'obviously Ulfric's death would have dramatically increased the chance of an Imperial victory and thus harmed our overall position in Skyrim.'
User avatar #128 to #126 - theshadowed (05/14/2014) [-]
Hammerfell armies led the Thalmor on a dance of death through their deserts. Most of the coastal cities suffered very heavily and the imperial defence of the cities was one of the reasons they lost

Ulfric is a vicious bastard who cares for power only. If he saw the Empire getting the **** beaten out of, he'd likely join in to to get more land

Seriously, I'm not saying the Thalmor wouldn't like a victory, read my godamned posts. I'm saying that if those High Elf cunts had to choose a side to win, it would be Skyrim
User avatar #127 to #126 - isuriand ONLINE (05/14/2014) [-]
..redeading what you said I veered off topic in my previous post. But I still hold t the point that the thamlor dont care to see the stormcloaks win. why? becuase of their outspoken and deep hatred of the elven races. it would mean that while skyrim and the empire would be politically separate. they would quickly coordinate their troops together in the event of another war.
User avatar #45 to #26 - commontroll (05/13/2014) [-]
The Empire is already in shambles. It's better for Skyrim, Hammerfell, and High Rock to work together and press the offensive. If they helped retake Morrowind for the Dark Elves then they'd have their support as well. If they fight to liberate Cyrodilil then almost all the Imperials would support them, the Wood Elves hate the Thalmor almost as much as everybody else, and I imagine the Khajiit would gladly go for some elf killin'.
#84 to #45 - isuriand ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
The khajiits would be problematic. They joined when the Aldmeri Dominion convinced them it was they who brought back one of the Scared moons to the sky above. Not to say it's impossible but the empire (or as you would see it, a coalition force from all the independent provinces of Tamerial) to convince them; but it'll require some strong diplomacy.

User avatar #90 to #84 - commontroll (05/13/2014) [-]
You're right, that's why the Empire could legalize Skooma and provide a ton of moon sugar to help convince them.
User avatar #91 to #90 - isuriand ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
maybe, but don't khajiits make moon sugar? I can't remember but that would be a clever idea If not controversial one .
User avatar #93 to #91 - commontroll (05/13/2014) [-]
I believe it comes from Morrowind and they then turn it into skooma. Could be wrong, but if it's the other way around then Elsweyr still profits as they can legally sell their moon sugar.

It'd be like if we made cocaine legal to forge an alliance with Columbia. There'd be a lot of controversy and all, but ultimately they'd probably be willing to help.

Varied Imperial Armor is such a great mod, it randomizes imperial soldier's armors to an extent so there are heavily armored soldiers and light armored ones with you to make varying ranks. sometimes you're acompanied by heavy armor-clad Imperial soldiers with the closed face helm, and that's hawt.

Racist? Exactly what makes him racist? The Dark Elves in the Gray Quarter don't have to pay taxes. There is a high elf trader in Windhelm market (Niranye). The jarl is not racist, but his own people misunderstand his cause and are racist as a result.
User avatar #116 to #47 - theshadowed (05/13/2014) [-]
No, he is a power hungry racist. Notice how his army is made up of just white nords? Dark Elves live like Jews, just talk to Brunwulf Free-Winter. And Balgruuf knows hes a dickface
#88 to #47 - isuriand ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
You brought a few good points. but a few things I'd like to ask.   
1. where did you hear that the grey quarter does not pay taxes? I've not heard that one yet.   
2. you've seen the grey quarters? it's a slum.   
3. seen any argonians or khajiits inside the city? nope. why? they're confined to the docks.    
4. did you happen to talk Brunwulf Free-Winter? listen to him talk about ulfric's attiude towards non nords (this is it if you cant/dont talk to him "Whenever a group of marauders attack a Nord village, Ulfric is the first to sound the horn and send the men. But a group of Dark Elf refugees gets ambushed? A group of Argonians, or a Khajiit caravan? No troops. No investigation. Nothing. There's a group of cutthroats out there right now that Ulfric doesn't lift a finger to bring to justice, as long as they don't threaten Nord land."  ) (another converstion to back this up  Malthyr:    "You're a war hero, Brunwulf. Ulfric will listen to you."   
Brunwulf:   "It's not that simple. Ulfric wants a Skyrim for the Nords. He doesn't trust what he calls outsiders."   
Malthyr:    "You've seen how we live -- cramped alleys, run-down buildings, few guard patrols. Even the name 'Gray Quarter' is an insult."   
Brunwulf:   "I'll speak to Ulfric soon, but I make no promises that I can change his mind."   
Malthyr:    "That's all I ask. With your help, we have a chance to make a better life for ourselves here. For that, I thank you." ).   
   
Ulfric is a good nord, he cares deeply about other nords and feels the best way to care for them is for an independent skyrim (how much does he personally want the throne is up for debate I'd wager). however his attitudes are harsh against anyone not a child of the north.

I don't know where I heard the taxes thing, so disregard that if you want. There are no khajiit and very few argonians in other cities, too. No one trusts them.
As for not caring about non-nords and wanting skyrim for only nords, look at how other areas in Tamriel mostly consist of one race or one race is in a preferred situation there. Why shouldn't Nords have their own ancestral (sort of) lands for themselves?
#131 to #130 - isuriand ONLINE (05/15/2014) [-]
Point. And I'll agree that's the case thru most of tamerial that the majority on a race is located in a certain province. However, While within the empire citizens can easily for the most part move from one province to another with minor hassles, not the same for a stormcloak Skyrim and Certainly not the case for the aldmeri Dominion. I'm not saying that wanting a home for the nords is bad. but look how some treat those who have lived there or moved to skyrim and are trying to make a home.
If nothing else compare playing different races in skyrim vs oblivion. besides stat wise you dont really get any flack for being a race other than Imperial. have you tried being a high elf or argonian in skyrim? Not all nords do it but a lot give other races crap just becuse of their race; and that's in no way fair to them when they either were born there themselves or are just simply trying to make a living for themselves.
#132 to #131 - xrayfishx (05/16/2014) [-]
A valid point. But how else do you establish your dominance if not through violence? I mean, you have to make it clear that you're the boss here. Even if it's bad now, the racism would later die down most likely.
I guess that's why the story of TES is so good, it's like real life where there is no right or wrong, there's just different opinions. Either way, this is a pretty useless discussion, there's no point in continuing this (hence the lack of thought put into my response). Pic related.
User avatar #28 to #27 - thepandaking (05/13/2014) [-]
yeah, it's too bad, a Dragonborn High King wouldn't be a bad idea, but since the Empire is so distinct already, I don't mind the option of strengthening it in hopes that they can kill the Thalmor. I only commented that because people like to forget that the Empire does not in any way enjoy working with the Thalmor, it's like the treaty that the Mexican general signed for Texas, they literally had no choice in the matter.
but yeah **** Ulfric, the replacement Jarl for him is so nice and has the whole city's interest in mind for a change.
it's bad that I'm more opinionated about Skyrim politics than I am with real life politics, but that's because Skyrim politics are more black and white I suppose.

(Spoilers in the post, but I am not spoiling them because I don't feel like it and the game's been out and widely talked about since 2011)

Throwing my few Septims in on this one, assuming you became the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood and end up doing their questline and kill Titus Mede II, the current Emperor of Tamriel it is in fact you, the Dragonborn, who is canonically take his place as the new emperor, instead of his heir, because the emperors were meant to be the decendants of dragons, or atleast the septim line was, and seeing as you are, infact, dragonborn, you could use that as your reasoning to take back the thrown

Well that's atleast what I think (and wouldn't it of been cool as **** to somehow become the emperor in one of these games, I mean you make your battles and defences and one day bring Cyrodil to its knees to anoint you the new emperor, uniting the rest of the world against the Thalmir? (and who knows how they could wieve that?

But allas, maybe in a couple years we can have such a thing
User avatar #121 to #50 - thepandaking (05/14/2014) [-]
right but in the DB questline, Gaius Maros tricks you and finds out you're part of it, so that wouldn't work role-playing-wise to become the emperor after they found out you were planning on killing him
User avatar #86 to #50 - isuriand ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
In Theory yes. in practice... It would beyond all belief for you to claim the Imperial throne for yourself. the Dragon-blood argument would not hold as well as it could (unless you have done all the main quests, then you could have some weight behind you). not to mention the fact that the murderer is trying to claim the throne will be a dfficult pill for many to swallow

At least that's my opinion of the whole issue.
User avatar #119 to #86 - franklyimaperson (05/14/2014) [-]
Indeed, which is why I was only thinking it should be for people who do a majority of the quests, but perhaps that'd be something for a future game

Elder Scrolls 6: How'd I get to High Rock?: You have the chance of igniting the Second Great War and riding that **** for all its worth, or something
User avatar #124 to #119 - isuriand ONLINE (05/14/2014) [-]
I'd have to talk to my brother about this (since he played it FAR more than I did) but I think Morrwowind (ES 3) had something to that extent. The case being that the actions your character did in one quest could be used in other places elsewhere; that being the leader of the fighters guild (or whatever it's equivalent was) meant more than just noting you beat that series of quests and getting some trinkets.
