The Empire won the war, Maven got murdered (not saying that was me). Who should rule Riften and why?
@Kazhura adam This thread is about main cities, that's why I didn't mention Dawnstar and Winterhold. Whiterun is not concerned by the war until you do the Civil War questline, then you risk killing non essential NPCs and a few things get destroyed and never repared as a way to indicate Whiterun suffered an attack. By the way, what do you mean by no job to overtake in Solitude?
@Blademaster Jauffre Maven's nomination only makes sense because of her influence in my opinion. She has way too much power if you add a title and it's sad to have her as a result if you side with the Imperials, but it's also plausible.
Your not the only one, I just tried to read the answers on my last poll (it had anwers and was posted max 10hours ago) and it simply vanished.
Sure. That was just a missed opportunity in my opinion. I don't think college is a bad idea for future games, that's all.
@Dreadthorn the college yes, but you can find bards in every cities and even as a random encounter on the round. Considering we're in Skyrim, it would have been cool to have warrior bards.
@BenjaminBat12 Agreed, that's the first thing Aela say when you meet her after fighting that giant. In Oblivion you have they are even more like mercenaries, that's the subject of the questline.
I agree with @SPLUMBER . You can say the same about Brynjolf, the fact that you have no followers in my favourite guild of the game saddens me.
@Petruta Nita Stoica I have to disagree on that last part, I find the guy unbearable. I would prefer Saerlund, the younger son of Laila Law-Giver. He's one of the only people openly questionning Ulfric's motives and disagreeing with his mother's politics. He even got disowned because of that. I think it would be poetic justice for him to be in power, either as a jarl or as a steward.
I want the Thieves Guild and the Dark Brotherhood, but what I'd want the most is an amazing Fighters Guild questline for a change.
Also ThE bArDs CoLlEgE is welcome to try again, if it's fun we have more main quests. With an interesting gameplay maybe, like we had with shouts.
Elves age differently but that doesn't necessary mean she's old. It's hard to tell because of her personality. Same for Vezarra, though in a different way. I think the mystery is part of the appeal when it comes to these (unfortunately dead) characters.
My best guess is Elisif and Falk would be beheaded then Erikur would try to have his way. Yes Bryling have more of that typical Nord mentality (honor) and it would be a clever choice politically speaking but Erikur would see it as an opening, probably would have Bryling assasinate and do anything to stay in business. This scenario implies Tullius was also killed, because I can't imagine Ulfric leaving him alive.
In a way you could see it as the imperial guy making assumptions because you were caught on a border (also Skyrim is diverse but not so much), but in another hand places like Cyrodiil are melting pots so this makes no sense.
Another Bethesda inconsistency.
I would definitely love a game in the Summerset Isles. Main plot should be interesting.
It's indeed established that they come to you when you sleep, but in my opinion the typical way for them to go for a specific person is because the Night Mother tipped them via a listener and ask for a someone in particular. (as in the Oblivion DB side quest you got after the questline is over).
In Skyrim it's a little different. Since the Night Mother doesn't talk to them, they had to get cretative. They probably keep an eye on any murderer they think they can control then give them the test we got by Astrid. It's possible they keep an eye on prisons, the news from the innkeepers and the competition.
These are some cute Khajiits. And don't think they look like dogs.
I'm not a big fan of the Civil War in Skyrim, it's bugged, underwhelming, and almost the same for both sides so not good replay value.
It's difficult to give an age to Cicero considering the character. I think he's mid to late 40s, Nazir and the werewolf in their 40s, Festus between 70 and 80, Astrid late 30s. Gabriella and Vezaara I have no idea but I doubt they are more than 35.
Creepy. Never trust a Forsworn.
@Inquisitor of Dementia I think I know why, that's probably because it seems like they've been in the guild forever since they were raised by a Companion.
@Inquisitor of Dementia to me Vilkas, Farkas and Aela are all about the age. I think they are late 20s/early 30s.
