Is Talos really a Divine? The answer is no.
It's really not, the courier says it is a man and if you kill Delphine or dishonour the Blades the letters still come.
It's probably not the Greybeards because the letters still come if you dishonour them.
It can't be Talos because he isn't real (another thread is available to argue that).
I personally believe that the "friend" is Hermaeus Mora increasing the power of his new champion, as we find out in the Dragonborn DLC, the Dragonborn becomes Hermaeus Mora's champion in canon.
In the early game dual wielding can increase damage massively but you MUST pick the correct perks, Dual Flurry 2/2, Armsman 5/5 and Dual Savagery 1/1 are the essentials. On the swords themselves, just try to smith Daedric or Dragonbone to godly levels or get Soulrender and Bloodscythe and use them with the Deathbrand armour.
Shields can be very effective late game but are underpowered early game. The most important perks are Shield Charge 1/1, Block Runner 1/1 and Shield Wall 5/5. On the shields themselves, without a doubt get Spellbreaker. No other shield comes close, armour ratings on shields is barely important but the ward effect which Spellbreaker uniquely provides can be constantly refreshed is extremely important, it makes dragons a breeze as dragon breath is technically a spell.
If your skills are lacking, reflexes, common sense and muscle memory is hard to train but the two best thing you can do for you success in combat is
1) Learning the AI and attack patterns of every different NPC is very important, allowing you to predict attacks and stop missing power attacks.
2) Use the sprint function, Bethesda accidentally made you the fastest NPC in the game excepting some passive NPCs. Also an NPC must stop and stand still to attack allowing you to get even further away. Just run away and snipe with a bow if you have trouble with fights.
Morokei is the most exploitable as you can set up runes, a stealth shot, followers, potions, poisons and weapons before choosing to start the fight. Also he will only use the Staff of Magnus which drains health/stamina/magicka putting an archer at an advantage. Fun fact his name translates to victory.
If you want a fun quest try Vokun or Hevnorak, a great story behind those two.
Volsung will have a dragon for backup if you have completed the dragon rising quest.
No idea on the bed ownership, which platform are you on? Could help identify the glitch.
To adopt a child you must have the Hearthfire DLC. Then you should talk to Proventus Avenicci or Brill depending on Civil War questline choices. Buy the Alchemy Room, then convert it to a child's bedroom. This will house two children. This room is located to the left of the bottom of the stairs.
By the way, there are two bedrooms in ghe upstairs of Breezehome, one for the Whiterun housecarl (Lydia) and one for you and your spouse. Lydia's is to the left of the top of the stairs, yours is to the right although it must be furnished for a bed to be present.
How about this -
THE ELDER SCROLLS 6 : DOMINION
Taking place in Valenwood/Hammerfell/Cyrodiil/Alinor, this is a huge war between the Aldmeri Dominion and the Empire, no the tiny ten soldier battles we got with Skyrim's civil war, HUGE 100 soldier battles with tactics, battle strategies, different locations, siege equipment, huge weapon selections reminiscent of Morrowind, the possibility of losing battles, the choice of side and most importantly WE WANT CONSEQUENCES if you sack a village for supplies it will matter, if you order a public excecution of the enemy it will matter, if your side takes a town things will change not just guards like in Skyrim. At the end there could be a twist like; the entire war was planned to weaken Tamriel for a huge invasion by Akavir a Daedric Prince or best of all... JYGGALAG.
or even this-
THE ELDER SCROLLS SIX : AKAVIR
skipping the whole great war angle we begin in Akavir, news of Tamriel is sparse and we introduced to a huge new world of special races and lore. They could make any plot line considering how little we know of Tamriel
Padomay is not Sithis. The biggest problem with the TES community now isn't skybabies or Skyrim remakes, it's people making up lore. "he has negative power" WHAT! Do some research before misinforming people.
Using the information provided by the in-game books The Annotated Anuad, Before the Ages of Man, The Monomyth, Sithis, Mythic Dawn Commentaries, Varieties of Faith in the Empire and Pocket Guide to the Empire you can easily decipher these facts-
-In the beggining there was only the Void.
-The Void is Sithis and Sithis is all-encompassing.
-Two consciousnesses formed.
-One was known as Anu and was a being of morals, creation and benevolence.
-The other was known as Padomay and was a being of evil, destruction and malevolence..
-Each of the three consciousnesses had roughly the same amount of power
-Eventually Padomay and Anu fought and destroyed each other.
-From the remains of the two consciousnesses the Et-Ada formed, the power of Anu and Padomay was split between them inequally.
-Those with a higher concentration of Padomay's remains were more malevolent and destructive than those mostly made up of Anu's remains.
-Eventually the Et-Ada split into three groups; the Aedra, Daedra and Magna-Ge.
-The Aedra used up most of their power creating Nirn and all of its inhabitants.
-The Magna-Ge used up about half of their power helping Nirn before they left for the Aetherius.
-The Daedra used a small portion of their power creating the realms of Oblivion.
-The TES universe started with a set amount of power.
-Power cannot be created or destroyed, only transferred or displaced.
-The power balance in the TES universe looks something like this :-
Nirn and Inhabitants : 31%
Daedra : 20%
Magna-Ge : 13%
Aedra : 3%
Sithis : 33%
They aren't a devolved form of mer but they are related to mer in a fourth cousin removed sort of way. You shouldn't be seeing a resemblance to the Falmer, because they are meant to look a bit like the Orsimer or Orcs to you ice-brained nords.
The orcs were created when Trinimac was physically eaten by Boethiah. Malacath was the sh*t that came out. This affected the particular sect of Altmer who saw Trinimach as chief deity and were exiled by Aldmeris society, they also became warped by this divine event.
Malacath created other less-civilised orckin like trolls, giants and Ogrims who share a large amount of characteristics. Considering that orcs are related to both these things-
and that orcs are related to all other elf races. This means that pure-blood altmer supremacists are actually related the ogrim on the right.
First the Ehlnofey wandered all of Tamriel (including Skyrim) before evolving and differentiating leaving basically no mark on the land.
About two thousand years later the Argonians arrived and found an empty little province and didn't even use it well, they just messed about in Cyrodil insted. Shortly after the Khajiit showed up and did't do anything either.
Roughly a thousand years further the Dwemer (a highly advanced race of elves) and the Falmer/Snow Elves (whatever you want to call them) appeared and colonised the land adding farms, mines and building real cities instead of petty villages.
Around two hundred years late the Nords arrived en masse by boat from Atmora, refugees from a devastating famine and recieved aid from the snow elves but not the Dwemer who saw them as a threat (and turned out to be right).
Eventually the Snow Elves realised that they couldn't provide for themselves and the ever-increasing refugee population of Nords. They also began to be outnumbered by the Nords and became paranoid. On the Night of Tears the snow elves went into the nordic city of Saarthal and massacred the citizens, even killing women and children. This really piss*d off the Nords especially Ysgramor who rallied five thousand elite soldiers and a load of farmers with pitchforks to kill the elves.
This began a huge war in which the Dwemer, Ayleids and Falmer all had to protect against the growing human populations (which now included the cross-bred Imperials and Bretons but not Redguards just yet), it was a huge war and included many battles including the Battle of the Moesring and ended in the near-extinction of the pure Falmer and the Ayleids, contributed to the dissapearance of the Dwemer and gave rise to the Alessian Empire.
The Nords had at this point taken all of Skyrim except The Reach which after the Dwmer incident was mostly empty, the Reachmen saw their chance and took it as their homeland (we all know how that worked out).
All in all the Nords don't technically hail from Skyrim, they hail from Atmora but they didn't really steal it, more like they took it by force.
Innocent? The man tore apart a little girl with his own hands and then ate her body.
If he was truly remorseful he would accept death as his punishment.
Yeah that is a very fun perk.
Read up on Phynaster and you will see that all Elf races live at least a hundred years longer than men or beastfolk.
Other races have increased their lifespan through evolution, like the Chimer/Dunmer or the Falmer. Most elf races live about two hundred years longer than humans. An exception is the Orcs and Bosmer who only live about one hundred years longer than men. The lifespan of the Sinistral Elves and Maormer is unknown but is probably extended. Altmer use good healthcare and an unending supply of food to increase their lifespan.
To reiterate, the lore presented in TES II Daggerfall shows that it is most likely that Talos did become a god but thanks to definiton it is impossible for Talos to be an Aedra and by extension a Divine. I mean he was a good emperor not someone to be worshipped.
Also if you read the book The Talos Heracy it presents some very good evidence showing that Talos was not the saint people believed him to be eg. killing his two year old crossbreed child to protect his reputation, burning down the Imperial City to incite a war and even killing his Battlemage and stealing his soul for personal use.
As Talos was not born until the end of the Second Era and did not achieve CHIM until a few decades after the start of the Third Era
The reason Talos can't be a Divine is mostly to do with definition.
Aedra - An Et-Ada from the Dawn Era who aided in the creation of Nirn and did not leave before completion.
Is Talos really a Divine? The answer is no.
