I have played both sides of the questlines thrice. Once to get an idea of eachother's ideas for themselves, their propaganda, and each other. In my unprofessional opinion, I think the stormcloaks are a more fun questline because it feels shorter, and you attack whiterun and appoint a new jarl. The Imperial faction is more practical (imo) because you're restoring power to the empire to go head to head with the aldmeri dominion(AD) once again. but it is slower, and less fun (i'm pro imp). The aftermath of either side has people who dislike you, and jarls dissapointed in you. theres an equal amount, so it all depends on your preferences. Regarding the possibilities of the aftermath of the war, I think that the stormcloak rebellion/army defeating the AD would be more interesting, but less realistic. The Imps recontrolling skyrim and rising up against the AD and reinstating Talos worship is much less fictional and more realistic. (I feel the need to remind the stormcloak supporters that the only people who want talos banned are the altmer, think of it like a temporary ban, until they defeat the AD. Both sides want the same thing, but are going about it how they feel is right. At the end of the Imp questline, Legate Rikke blesses Galmor and Ulfric through Talos. I got really emotional at the end of the stormcloak questline because i killed her:( she is the representation that everyone wants the same thing, but the stormcloaks are certainly in for an uphill battle because they only have 1 country(at the end of the civil war), whereas the empire has 3 (or 4?) it's (imo) easier to regain talos worship through the empire. I would love to see some points be made for either side. (I want respect for people's ideas and beliefs. please dont disrespect or insult someone because they think talos isnt a god, or that he is - its just an effing video game, but i like inspiring discussion and sharing ideas. keep it at a mundane "High Hrothgar Truce"
