    hammerfell would be foolish to do that. because the second their armies turn away from hammerfell, the dominion would swoop in and crush every city the redguards own. no, it'll most certainly take place in a part of hammerfell. i would be very surprised if it's not just a small area of hammerfell too, because that place is probably the 3rd largest province of tamriel.

    The only way I could see that happening is if they release a future TES as a multiplayer game, possible even some hybrid single player/mmo (cities and battlegrounds have other players).

    This is the only way they would want to or be able to do something as massive as that. Otherwise we'd get a very small area and few quests (because there would need to be a lot more options, branching out depending how you solve them) or they would need decades to develop it and it's not worth it unless they want to charge $200-300 for the game. So the only way for it would be releasing subscription fee or regular extra content DLCs and multiplayer to substitute the initial missing content.

    Played Dragonborn DLC for about 2 hours. Just ran about exploring and killing stuff. The place is...interesting. Need to get into the quests. Been too busy collecting Chitin for the armor.

    It's going to take a few more days for me to finish up Dawnguard sidequests and loose ends before starting the DLC but I was actually thinking about doing the same thing.. just going there wearing only normal clothes and leaving all my fancy stuff behind. Otherwise it would be a shame to miss out on all of the new things or be forced to downgrade all those daedric artifacts and enchanted dragonscale and jewelry for those close-to-beginner level items..

    i still upgraded to that solhiem armor (side grade really)

    i picked that for rp reasons, better to stay a true nord, than become miraak 2.0


    since i was wearing the rigor mask and using dragon armor, i was pretty close IMO

    I kinda liked the nords too before I got through the Dawnguard main quest and now I don't really know. Reading the history books and talking to the snow elf indicates that the nords just came down from Atmora and committed genocide against all the elves living in Skyrim. They didn't just conquer them, they purged every elf that lived there, even pushed the snow elves to extinction. What's worse is that they are proud about it. They altmer probably deserved it (they kept humans as slaves and killed them for amusement) but the snow elves seemed to be highly developed and peaceful people.

    As for the nordic armor, it's available everywhere in Skyrim as well with Dragonborn installed. I think every bandit chief wears it:P It's decent and looks nice but still not as good as daedric or dragonbone. I was thinking about chitin and bonemold and whatever the Skaal wear.

    That staltheim armor is butt ugly in my opinion. I'm working my way up to dragonbone as fast as possible so I can equip ebonsteel.

    Oh I am not that big of a Nord fan either but it doesn't feel right to me to have one of the mer, kittens, or iguanas, be a dragonborn.

    that's half the truth. the snow elves and nords lived in relative peace for some time before the fighting started. then the night of tears happened, the snow elves slaughtered almost all of the nords in skyrim. ysgramor was the only survivor of that event, and he returned to give the snow elves the same treatment. it was the elves that instigated the conflict.

    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.

    is the Dragonborn DLC story after the normal content? or does it interfere somehow?
