Stormcloaks? More like Worstcloaks! Guffaw!
@Vance Stubbs, get that filthy Imperial trash outta here! Skyrim belongs to the Nords!!!!!!!!
@TennesseeCousinLover, The Nords will fall anyways because of their crippling lack of calcium!
@Vance Stubbs, Filthy milk drinker. At least we didn't cave in to the Elves demands like a bunch of sissies. Skyrim was loyal to the empire, but y'all messed up so bad, we didn't want you anymore. What should that tell you about your empire?
@TennesseeCousinLover, Well, it's more like half of Skyrim doesn't want the Empire anymore. A little less, counting Whiterun.
@Vance Stubbs, true, but Balgruuf was a turd. Or I thought so anyway.
@TennesseeCousinLover, ...1v1 me IRL.
@Vance Stubbs @TennesseeCousinLover, woah,woah, stop before I throw you both in prison!
@Vance Stubbs, @TennesseeCouinLover, cant we all just sing a song and get along? 🎵There once was a hero named Ragnar the Red.....🎵
@TennesseeCousinLover, Our empire will prosper in your ashes.
@TennesseeCousinLover, Long live the emperor, long live the empire.
@wiseheadlesschicken, Your empire will be in ashes!
@Vance Stubbs, you know where to find me, down here in rocky top you thalmor puppet.
@TennesseeCousinLover, didn't expect that, to be honest.
@TennesseeCousinLover, although if we're being honest, Skyrim surely wouldn't survive without the empire.
@wiseheadlesschicken, For real though, the empire caves like pvssies. The Aldmeri Dominion is about world domination and will totally enslave humans. People have to stand up to them, but the empire quit trying. That's why the Nords wanted nothing to do with the Empire after that. Because surrendering isn't in nord culture.
@TennesseeCousinLover, I guess it depends on how you see it. To me, the odds in the long run are with the Empire.
@wiseheadlesschicken, maybe, but they put their morals, beliefs, and traditions before politics and money, and that makes me like them more. They care about their way of life, and aren't about to give that up.
@TennesseeCousinLover, For real though, how cool would it have been to have a DLC where the dragonborn unites the srormcloaks and the empire against the thalmor and basically invades sumeret isle?
@TennesseeCousinLover, But they're also really, really racist, and are only stopped from deporting or killing the dark elves by the fact that the dark elves know things about Windhelm and would go to the empire and they are vital to the economy.
@UmActually, Not all of their beliefs were right, but it is their right to live how they wish in their own land. Saying that they were racist, and they totally were, changes nothing. Just because a small part of their culture was racism, doesn't mean their entire culture was bad and should be changed at the whim of a spineless empire. The nords have a right to their way of life.
@TennesseeCousinLover, yeah... but if the enemy is the Thalmor, they've hit themselves with an arrow in the knee (which, if you know anything about medieval medicine, isn't something you walk away from). Also, while Talos worship is banned, it's not like the governments weren't turning blind eyes, Jarl Elisif even asks you to leave Torygg's horn at a Talos shrine. Additionally when you complete the Imperial quest line General Tullius tells you to stay close because they have one more enemy to slay so the empire was only biding their time Finally, the civil war was exactly what the Dominion wanted, they wanted the war to go on and on and helped feed the rebels and Ulfric money and information indirectly to help them stay on equal footing, and a Stormcloak victory, while not their first desired outcome, if they had to pick a side, they'd go Stormcloak because man would be even weaker. Also, there is no honor in defending traditions of racism
@Sven and Otar, they were defending more than racism. The honor comes from their warrior way of life and the way they will lay down their lives and their beliefs that all who fall in battle go to sovngarde. I didn't say racism was honorable. The government may turn a blind eye, but for how long? Thalmor Justicars roam the land and torture people. We see that when we rescue that gray-mane guy. Ysgamor and the companions drove out the elves, and skyrim could do it again. They can hold their own, and would jump to the side of the empire if the empire fought the thalmor again. So would the red guards and the Bosmer and everyone else because everyone hates the Thalmor, even they can't publicly say. Skyrim doesn't hate the empire, they just don't want them to change their way of life.
Evanescence is constantly playing in my head
*CAN'T WAKE UP*
Look guys, whichever side you're on, can we agree that the Aldmeri Dominion is just the worst.
Your empire will be in ashes.
@TennesseeCousinLover, crap, that was meant to be a reply imma try again.
The imperial are just corrupt puppets on Thalmor strings. Skyrim belongs to the nords. We need to drain the swap in the province of skyrim.
@I Broke Benjamin, Build that fort! Build that fort!
Ok the Stormcloaks are straight up racists. F*ck them.
The stormcloaks were winning the war in both military power, and growing support in the province. If the dovahkiin kad remained uninvolved, by the end of the war the srprmcloaks would have driven the legion out of skyrim, and if not for the cowardice of the late high king torrig, the war would've begun years prior.
Skyrim belongs to the Elves!
