    I wouldn't take that as complete canon though. TES lore is messy and shows an example or two of historical revisionism. I wouldn't be surprised if a "conflicting" account shows up in a book in a later game.

    Not sure if that's the whole "truth". When doing the College quests, you actually discover that the elves sacked Saarthal because of the Eye of Magnus... which is kinda like a weapon of mass destruction. Could be the elves just struck a preemptive strike or wanted to prevent the stupid humans from blowing up Skyrim.

    Damned snow elves. I feel no sympathy for them when it comes to the nords

    *spit*

    I do however feel bad for what the dwarves did to them. That was just low.

    yeh, it's just a good starting point to have an idea of whats going on, i must admit i like the fact there are accounts that differ on some of the bigger subjects.

    the snow elves were attacking the nords for a while before the night of tears. the books state that "men reproduced and expanded" too fast, so the elves started to cull them for fear of over population. then, they sacked sarthaal and discovered the eye. ysgramor left back to atmora, gathered his 500 companions, then came back and eradicated every snow elf they could find. the elves were the ones in the wrong here, like they almost always are... the only good ones i've seen so far are the tribal bosmer, and the dark elves. the common altmer are ok, but still haughty and full of their selves.

    It doesn't interfere as far as I can tell, some lines in the content will change if you have killed Alduin though.

    it can take place during, but i think it should take place after for RP reasons. It just feels like the last major thing to do. the unique lines make it better imo

    Good thing I killed all of the Stormcloaks.

    I just can't side with them. I even made a Nord with the intent of joining Ulfric and couldn't bother to play it out. His racism just shuts down any interest I have in his cause.

    the choice is between a bunch of nationalists and a bunch of fascists

    the fascists are morons who screw up what they have. giving away hammerfall, throwing the nords under the bus to please an enemy they could easily defeat

    and a bunch of racists who are skyrim for nords!

    I've already explained why I trust the Empire. The quasi-Aryan nature of the Stormcloaks is just too much for me.

    I should also add that I killed the Emperor, if that's worth anything.

    If I had it my way the dragonborn would cut down Ulfric for the self-serving scumbag he is and then rally the Stormcloaks under a new banner as an anti-Thalmor group.

    Skyrim for the nords.

    As I tend to have nationalistc views, it was an easy choice for me
    Though I agree that Ulfric is stupid at times.
