    So...

    How is Dragonborn?

    Non-spoiler reviews from any of you genuine players?

    i love dragonborn. the main baddy is a pretty interesting guy (with a sexy voice imo...) and the new shouts are soooo much fun. there are loads of side quests to do too, and pretty much all of them are fun. also, i think there's a new enchant on some of the gear that is just beyond kick ass. the new weapons and armor all look great too. overall, i fucking love it lol.

    Dragonborn is pretty cool. It doesn't have as good of engaging story as Dawnguard but it has much more interesting side quests to do

    I keep trying to play this game on my PC but I find it really hard to NOT make my character a god through blacksmithing and enchanting. I also can't seem to find a decent list of mods that improve the looks/balance of the overall game without making something cheesy. I dunno if it's another mod but after I installed the unofficial skyrim patches and the dragons were talking...terribly.

    I might try again since I bought a bow IRL and am in the archery spirit.

    anyone know if the soul cairn summons count as undead? i tried googling it, but there was nothing about it. my vampire is a necromancer, and i need to know if they are. i don't wanna go through the trouble of getting them if they're just atronachs.

    Ahtar is probably the best choice. The executioner from Solitude. You might begrudge him his job, but what he says about how Sybille Stentor "deals" with prisoners - implying he is complicit with what is going on since he is also head jailer - makes me think he is shady. This wiki article explains it, I've seen all the quotations in-game too: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Sybille_Stentor.

    Uthgerd the Unbroken in Whiterun is a little bit suspicious to me, there is an open letter from Maven Black-briar on her table in the Bannered Mare, which might imply she is an assassin. Although, it's difficult to verify this, and the letter could have been left as an after-thought in development, for some quest that was never implemented. If your character is very evil, you can follow the Namira quest, you get a follower from that who would make a good candidate.

    uthgerd is a good choice for sacrifice imo. from the conversation with her, it seems she has little control over her own actions when fighting. surely someone like that should be put down.

    well, the government of hammerfell left the empire after the white-gold concordat was signed. from what i've heard, they still actively war with the dominion on their borders, and the dominion has apparently taken the city of taneth. so, i'd say we'll go to speak with the redguard leaders. imo, this could be the start of the final war with the dominion.

    new DLC is just speculation right now

    but even if it's confirmed, I hope all platforms will get it at nearly the same time. Or does Xbox still have exclusivity on this?

    I'm enjoying it. Its a pleasant change from Skyrim, scenery-wise, and I find the story interesting.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

    I believe I recall Microsoft paying a bundle to get dibs so it will probably hit XBox first.

    their deal was only for two dlcs. they're no longer under that contract, and any new dlc will come out at the same time for all platforms. unless there's been a new deal made after dragonborn.

    we'll probably go to some place like stros m'kai to discuss relations with the redguards. this could be the start of the final war with the dominion.

    Being an executioner he does make an obvious choice but he isn't exactly evil and hes married. Uthgerd is already out of the picture unfortunately. I made her into a blade.

    And no, my character is an anti-hero but not evil, that's why I can't get Cicero either. Doing generally evilish things for greater good is ok but not murdering people who aren't murderers themselves. Unless they attack me for no reason of course:P

    I could see it working where you're sent in secret as an envoy to meet with the Redguards to broker an alliance with the Empire. After winning the war in Skyrim and establishing a clear dominance, the Empire is emboldened against the Aldmeri Dominion. However, they are still too weak to hope to stand up against the Elven forces, so they send the Dragonborn - the one who cinched the war for them - to aid the Redguards in their fight against the Aldmeri army. Eventually the Dominion would find out about this betrayal and launch a war on the Empire. Alternatively, it could be spun as the Dragonborn being played up as having betrayed the Empire, so Imperial forces would be hounding you in Redguard whenever the Aldmeri are looking, but otherwise helping or letting you pass.

    To maintain parity with the Stormcloak version, it could be largely the same, except the Stormcloaks wouldn't have any reason to hide their intent.

    Although, I could see the Aldmeri forces being kicked out of Skyrim. That would solve the issue of traveling back to Skyrim and encountering Aldmeri forces with a pro-Empire character. At that point the DLC would have to take place after the Civil War and Main Quest in order to prevent conflicts with existing quests.

    hmmm

    maybe if you are empire allied, you might help the elves

    if you are a storm clock, you help the red guard.
