The god Talos founded the current empire, and isn't pronouncing himself in any side of the Civil War. It is not like the empire wants to remove workship to their ascended to godhood founder who was also dragonborn, and whose last known descendant pretty much saved Mundus from fucking Mehrunes Dagon by turning into a fucking avatar of fucking Akatosh. They have trouble negotiating, that's the cost of having the current imperial line being born from war, and them sucking at making treatys. Still better than the "Skyrim for the nords, but the Forsworn have no right to ask to have the Reach for them" Stormcloaks anyday.
Not to mention: Talos is holding the world together, the Thalmor want that to stop, the Thalmor believe having a raging Civil War in Skyrim is good, and think of Ulfric as an asset. Talos doesn't want one side to exterminate the other, Talos wants them to stop squabbling about nonsense, beat the elves in combat, and then everybody resumes workship of Talos. Not just Skyrim, but the whole of the Empire/Tamriel. Because the Stormcloaks only care for Skyrim.
he doesn't take a side because he's a fucking god, as long as there's people worshipping he don't give a fuck because he has literally transcended caring about shit like that
It's even common sense that a God would rather side with the People who Worship him.
And a god would know WHY other people stopped workshipping him. Remember than Imperials are pretty much tanned Nords.
The only logical thing to do is for the Stormcloaks to actually help the Empire fight back against the Thalmor. Breaking up Skyrim ain't gonna do a whole lot to help matters, other than A) weaken the Empire (the one force large enough to contest Thalmor rule), and B) weaken the Stormcloaks with their unecessary civil war.
tl;dr Ulfric is a racist cunt who thinks he can take on a huge empire with a single country (if anything it's half a country, as not everyone agrees with him) and also believes that huge, multinational empire that's actually willing to help would be useless in doing so because "true nords blah blah blah"
I can never decide which side to support, they're both as bad as each other to me. I think the Stormcloaks have better clothes, and the Empire has the nicest cities. The Stormcloaks are douches towards non-Nordic races (Galmar Stone-Fist's brother is a good example), yet the Empire tries executing you because to let you go would mean more paperwork for them.
Also, evading arrest seems far too easy in Skyrim. In Oblivion, you could do something wrong and soldiers would immediately charge up on sight and give you an ultimatum. In Skyrim, the hold guards will just comment that they recognize you and you have nothing to worry about unless you speak to them or get caught directly.
And that's while I said all things considered. Stormcloaks is the lesser Evil.
Also, killing Thalmor is so satisfying. I make sure to pass by their Embasy every now and then to kill a few of them. A shame that It's unlocked only for that one quest.
I'd love a DLC focusing on fighting against Thalmor.
Also Fucking Maven Black-Briar becomes Jarl of the Rift. Fuck that shit Its why I haven't started the Civil War questline on any of my characters
Mmm, Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild and Listener of the Dark Brotherhood here. Riften is mine, Maven is just the face.
Also does anyone know how to get the enb injector to work? It says that I should write the target process to enbinjector.ini. I don't believe that I've edited any of the processes so I left the targets at default, but it still won't run.
Because apparently the optimus tech in my laptop may be the reason why enb .108 runs like a snail on my computer, since it ends up detecting the integrated Intel card rather than my nvidia processor. I'd like to try it out, but the aforementioned problem with the injector is stopping me.
Anyone playing some Daggerfall right now, the game is still amazing
one would think Talos wouldn't be stupid enough to fall for the Aldmeri Dominion's bullshit and side with a racist who's just after power
Bored, gonna replay Skyrim as a Nord with fascist beliefs (I mean siding with the Stormcloaks, because fuck the Empire, boy, I ain't doing another playthrough for them!)
I loved Oblivion. Tried Daggerfall but the combat I couldn't get into. I died constantly. I feel like there's a lot into it but I just can't get into it. I didn't like Skyrim either, then again it could be because of my computer. It can hardly run on low without skipping FPS.
Skyrim is smaller and you need to walk everywhere to get anywheres and feels almost linear.
And, in any case, Leyla is arguably worse, due to her sheer IDIOCITY.
I just started playing Morrowind for the first (well, second, but the first one was about five minutes a long, long time ago) time.
I really feel immersed in the game, even though some things, like missing, made it a bit frustrating in the beginning. I love how small and insignificant you feel at first, but slowly grow into a figure of importance. It just seems much more solid than Skyrim.
I also spent about 30 in-game days just getting to level 3, and I still get my ass handed to me by most enemies.
The way they designed enchanted weapons is genius, they really feel special, unlike the mass produced level scaled shit in Skyrim and Oblivion. I've got this long sword with a 1-25 shock damage enchant, and I rape everything with it.
The way they handled quests is also really neat, albeit a bit confusing at times, especially when you have to flip through 20-30 pages of journal to get to your quest info. But I really enjoy having to use my brain to gather information, instead of just getting a Magic Quest Arrow to guide me.
Also, can you guys recommend any good mods that can be installed manually? I'm playing it on my mac, so Mod Managers and the likes are not an option.
Paarthurnax is voiced by Mario holy shit
I doubt our god would side with a bunch of prejudiced fucks that think all homosexuals should be dead and that we shouldn't even be able to prevent pregnancy
that's not to say all people of religion are bad, i'm just saying it's a very two sided thing. Just because they worship him doesn't make them the ones that are in the right
My name in Tribes Ascend is MudcrabMerchant, it always makes me happy when Morrowind talk ensues because of it. Such a good game.
Gah, I need some DLC info tomorrow or else I'm going to loose a bet.
Hey guys, got my new pc running and skyrim looks great on it. Thing is I see that aa causes pixilation on amd drivers. ANyone else have this problem that might know if amd is fixing this soon? I can live without aa for a while, just curious.
I love this thread
Somebody needs to do this during the aldiun fight
Are there any mods that let you set a home for followers? It'd be neat to have them all hang around in one your houses.
