What Ethnic group would you say each race was inspired by
Nords are based of vikings, imperials are based of Romans, Bretons are made of the French more specifically the Normans, redguards are based of Saudi Arabian/ North Africans.
^nah i got to admit , redguards are persians .Cause curved. Swords
^Eminem owned you in 8 mile.
I mean a lot of these are more fantasy based rather than based off real ethnic groups. While they did inspiration from cultures for each of the groups, not all of them match up super well. But by and large I wouldn’t go looking for ethnic groups in fantasy settings(especially with Americans)
Nord- Scandinavian/northern Europe
Red guard-Middle eastern or North African culture/design
Argonian-south American indigenous tribes
Breton- not quite sure but Southern Europe I think
Khajit- east Asia or middle eastern culture
Altmer- honestly no idea
Bosmer- most likely American Indians
Redguards are African, Nords are Scottish/Icelandic, Kahjiit are Asian
^ What? Nords are Scandinavian, not Scottish at all. The Reachmen are the Scottish race (more specifically Highlanders)
I'd think calling them Scottish, even Irish is fair game. Besides, Nords are only loosely associated with Scandinavian peoples. Bare in mind that the vikings ended up bringing the Irish with them to Iceland and Greenland(?).
Also, Nazis aren't an ethnic group nor all that great of a term to describe an entire race of people in the game. If you're going to call anyone Nazis, call the Thalmor Nazis. They're extremists. Your common nobles and folk in the Isles, as well as across Tamriel are more than likely haughty and snobby; no more.
^ Fine then, but I think Anglo Saxons would be closer than basic Scots or Irishmen
As for the Nazi part, how about we change it to Germans. Not all of them are/were Nazis, but it's the most widely recognised part of their history. The Thalmor certainly fit with the Nazis, so you should call them the Nazis rather than all Altmer, that is true, I just thought it was more straightforward
^ Nazis are a political group not ethnic
^ I just agreed to that
What do you think?
