Originally posted by trustmeimrudy:Thing is they have to balance choice with storylines that will exist beyond just this game. So they had to have a civil war, and the history Ulfric has made and the people he has♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥off makes them joining together impossible at this point. Thalmor here are weak, and they are just a few soldiers. Imagine their elite armies...Hey Imperials agreed to the White-Gold Concordant with a reason. They fought and bled and nearly lost a war to the Dominion and that was when they still had Hammerfell, HIgh Rock, Skyrim, Cyrodiil, and whatever Dunmeri soldiers had escaped the ruins of Morrowind. With all that power, unified under one Empire, they still almost lost to the Dominion, so they had to make a treaty then, after they had beaten the Thalmor's army, then when they had a moment of strength or risk losing that momentum and the Thalmor deciding treaties werent necessary. So Talos worship was banned but the Empire didnt really enforce it cause they love Talos and didndt care everyone wanted to worship him. Then Ulfric made a big fuss about it at Markarth and the Dominion was like, nuh uh no worshipping allowed, and they demanded the right to enforce the ban in Skyrim, where before everyone just did it without telling any suspicious elves. Now while individual imperials might be racists, and many certainly look down on the other races [that said, every freakin race looks down on the other races] they also firmly believe in equality. They think they are the best but that everyone deserves a chance to shine, something no one else does.
Originally posted by Taleonas:Well, Ulfric is a racist and a bit of a♥♥♥♥♥♥ but I chose Stormcloak. Why? Because we don't an entire empire to defeat the Thalmor. The Redguards did it all on their own and if they can do it, then imagine if the Nords allied with them, and if we managed to get other races too, like the Orcs or the Bregons. Also the Thalmor are banning something that's real. If you ban something that you need to have a believe in, like God, that's fine, because there is no definite proof of his existence. But Talos is real and there is evidence to back it up. So banning him is like banning grass. It's a stupid idea.
