    now, since we're the last dragonborn... i was kind of wondering if this would come up. the leader of the tiger people of akavir. he apparently turned himself into a dragon, and he's supposed to be the biggest dragon in the world. so, i'm wondering if we'll have to deal with him in some way? maybe all of this miraak and dovahkiin business got tosh raka's attention and now, since they're the strongest empire in akavir, they're looking to come and kill the dovahkiin and pwn some shit.
    Nah, the next DLC will deal with dwemer and falmer and probably takes place in Hammerfell or more likely in Stros M'kai. The last one is supposed to be the biggest and will deal with the Thalmor and probably also selecting the new king of Skyrim. Don't ask for a source though, I can't be bothered to look it up again but it was supposed to be from some tweet from a developer with a good amount of half-confirmed rumors mixed in.

    Anyway, I finally got to the Dawnguard part and I have to say I love castle Volkihar! The initial area is just the tip of the iceberg.. I wish the player could get that place fixed up, well, at least partly so all the areas would be more accessible and in use and the garden would get some love again, it looks so nice.

    On another note, it's odd that none of the daedric princes are trying to get revenge on me:P I must have made at least 2 of them really mad at me.. Mehrunes for not killing that museum guy for the dagger and Vaermina for letting the priest destroy the staff (that thing really needs some buffs, I wasn't even tempted to kill the priest unlike with the dagger) and they do nothing, even commoners send thugs after me if I steal from them and pirates attack me if I kill their boss.

    I can't use any other weapons because of him.. they just look so good. Everything else feels really low res and bad compared to those weapons and armor. I'm not really sure how I feel about JaySuS Swords though, maybe I'll download it. They look decent judging from those pictures.

    eh, the princes aren't very active... you'd think they'd be pretty pissed when their champion is also the champion of every other daedra out there. i find it funny to get the mace of molag bal, then immediately run and do the boethia quest. cause ya know, i'm sorry about beating your former follower into submission, i just needed that lewt.

    Wow... Anyone notice how much the guards talk about "all these Hammerfell mercenaries walking around" since Dragonborn?

    Pretty sure the biggest comment I used to get was the curved swords one every now and then. Now I hear it at least once every time I go through Whiterun.

    Looks like I might need to reroll my reroll. My steward claimed the kids beds so they completely refuse to go to Lakeview. In fact, it looks like both of them completely glitched so I can't even talk to them. Ugh...

    Anyone know how to un-own beds, fire stewards, or un-adopt?

    Kill the steward, then use the console to resurrect him then use resetai (just resurrect wont work properly without that). You might also try going to console, selecting the steward and typing disable, then enable first.

Unfortunately they've run into some issues with redoing the armors so its going to be a while before they can include them I imagine.

    Still looking for a good Skyforge mod. Its just never sat well with me how they share the steel designs. Still looking for a good shield mod too. Never been a fan of the steel shield.

    Word of note for other rerollers, post-Dragonborn... Do not run into Miraak before you finish filling in the Dragon Shouts you want. Annoying as hell.

    Figured I should mention, holy crap the aMidianBorn mods are impressive. Really great work.
    I haven't tried Immersive Armors yet, been experimenting with some others. Hunting Grounds armor set is really well done if you have a female toon, author did a great job.

    Ran into another small problem:P Does anyone know a mod that adds a carriage or a boat near castle Volkihar? I'm playing with fast travel disabled so its a pain to leave the place and it takes too long to get near anywhere civilized. At least getting there isn't a problem any more. The new boats take you there for 500 gold.

    do you think the nords and red guards will be buddies? they seem similar

  8. #7188
    i could totally picture ulfric joining forces with the redguards. i mean, certainly he's smart enough to know that his forces alone will not be enough to take the entirety of the aldmeri dominion, which fought the whole empire and nearly matched it. they certainly have hatred for the empire in common, and a general distrust of elves.

    from an imperial viewpoint, it would probably just be trying to regain hammerfell as an imperial ally, but i'm not too sure if anything could really be done to regain the redguard's allegiance.i mean, the empire tried to give a whole portion of hammerfell to the dominion. just imagine how pissed the nords would be if they tried to do that with skyrim.

    well, banning talos worship wasn't that big of a deal until ulfric stirred up trouble in markarth. like alvor says if you talk to him everyone had their little talos shrines in their home, but then ulfric agitated enough and the emperor had to crack down. now, had they gave a portion of skyrim to the elves? every damn nord in skyrim would have raged. hard. ulfric's storm cloaks would have already taken skyrim by now had they tried that, because ALL of skyrim would be against the empire.

    Except Ulfric is a liar. I don't much like Tullius nor the Empire but Ulfric is in it for himself and on one else. As is shown by speaking to him in Sovngarde after you kill him. The Stormcloak cause is just though.

    I do regret siding with the Imperials on my last character though. It IS a Khajiit which means racially I should be aligned with the Aldmeri Dominion anyways. But as the Dragonborn, I have the power to single handedly oust the Dominion AND the Empire and unite Skyrim under one banner. And if Hammerfell can do it, you bet your ass Skyrim can too.

    See, I get these sense that the Empire is just waiting for the right moment to turn and kick the Aldmeri Dominion out of Tamriel. With the Nord problem solved they've regained their foothold in the north and allies to bolster their ranks again the Dominion. If that was taken from them it would go from Empire (humans) vs Aldmeri Dominion to Nords/Bretons/Redgaurds vs. Aldmeri Domion + Empire. I don't know if the three non-empire factions could survive that fight.

    that's exactly what the empire is doing. all the imperial higher ups still hate the dominion fiercely, but they're just biding their time until the final war. they know it's coming, the problem is that other members of the empire were too short-sighted to see what's going on, or are just foolish or greedy enough to not care. hammerfell's reasons for leaving the empire was just, the empire went too far by trying to give away their land. but ulfric and his band were just foolish, and split skyrim in two with hatred and that has overall lowered man's chances of winning against the dominion.

    there's another problem with a weakened empire that nobody seems to be taking into account, the akavir. akaviri warlords already tried to invade tamriel several times in the past, and it took everything we had to drive them out. now though, after the final war with the dominion, the massive losses from the rebellion, and the possibility that the empire has lost the aid of the redguards for good... tamriel just might fall to the akavir.

    Am i right in thinking we won't know the outcome of the war until the next game?

    I am thinking it will be 100 or so years in the future and we are trying to free our selves from the tyranny of aldmeri dominion/akaviri, you saw it here first!

    I think it is a good thing the empire has crumbled. Its time for the true sons of skyrim to wipe out the elves! with the help of some awesome bretons (belethor) and the red guards!


    btw why do so many people hate belethor. hes the best npc imo

    the Nords are the life blood of the empire, the greatest fighters and many of its soldiers are Nords. So lets sell them out because of a foolish war and sign a contract that throws Nordish pride under the bus because we were dumb enough to have a war that we could have won easily, but didnt

  18. #7198
    yes genn, the war could have been won. but the empire would have been completely exhausted and weakened possibly beyond repair. if that were the happen, what would stop the akavir from steam rolling over everyone? had the empire continued the war with the dominion, it wouldn't have just been imperials that would have been taxed beyond recovery. it would have been the whole of the empire. that would have been nords too. the akavir are incredibly dangerous, and i'm certain that the emperor took that into consideration when he weighed the outcome of finishing things.

    kicking the dominion all the way from cyrodiil, through valenwood, and then finishing them on summerset would have been and immense task, and one that it was smart to put off for a while. there's more than two sides to nirn, and you have to take that into consideration when you're fighting.

    ok, i think i have a problem. i wanted erik the slayer to be my steward, but i also wanted to give him a two-hand sword before asking him to be my steward. well, i went to my home where i had the weapon i wanted for him, which is the house i wanted him to be a steward for, and got the weapon. when i came back out, he walked up and asked if i would like for him to be my steward, well i said "i'll have to think about it" because you can't trade things with stewards. now he does not give the option to be my steward anymore. i've tried dismissing him, fast traveling, and waiting for days but he still doesn't have the option. am i fucked?
