  • what do you think is the most overlooked race and would be fun to see more of

    • Of the 10 Races already playable? I'd say the Bosmer/Wood Elves.

      If the next game is set in Hammerfell (I'm a proponent of this setting) and takes place a few years after the Skyrim Civil War, there should be an opportunity to see more Bosmer NPCs in the southern parts of the province (where forests likely are).

      Hammerfell technically doesn't physically border Valenwood (separated by ocean), but the south-southeast also borders the Great Forest region of Cyrodiil.  I see no reason why there shouldn't be some forestry in Hammerfell's south, which Wood Elf foreigners could feel more welcome in (especially if they're refugees fleeing the Thalmor).

      ...Of the Races that aren't playable?  I'd say the Kothringi.

      TESO (the first & only game to actually feature Kothringi NPCs so far) gave a couple hints that not all the Kothringi were wiped out by the Knahaten Flu, and they were known to travel to other provinces... SO, that gives the perfect excuse for bringing them "back"/i.e. possibly introducing them as a new playable Race.

    • Probably Kothringi or some other race we've scant heard of. Sload are found disgusting and mean thus over looked usually but they've been in two games so probably not them but close.

    • Akaviri would be a nice return, the lizard-men of the west.

      Or goblins. God forbid the next hero is a three foot shrimp with sharp teeth and a taste for the other other white meat.

      Of the playable race:

      Likely, of all the major games, it's easy to tell that certain races are... encouraged. Let's be honest, if everyone wrote down what character races people have tried in the past game/games, you'll probably find that the mass majority of them have been Imperial, Nord, Breton, Altmer, Redguard, Dunmar, and Bosmer (that's my guess on the order of percentages). I mean, can you imagine the Neverine being an Argonian? The Eternal Champion a Khajit? The Champion of Cyrodiil an Orc? The Dragonborn an Altmer? Hysterical? Yes. Possible? Meh. 

      The one and only time I've ever played a Khajit, I named him Puss-in-Boots. And I really really tried to make him look like... well, Puss-in-Boots. For comedy. Leather boots, Merchant's hat, an Akaviri sword (it's the slimmest in the game), and studded armor. 

      The savior of the world is a talking cat.Next time I'm naming him Meowith Milk-Drinker.

    • in my first playthru i was a argonein and my 2nd playthru was a high elf i don't remeber most of the other playthrus becuse i have not gotten far with them

    • Of the playable race, I guess most people don't seem to know what to do with the Redguard. I don't see a lot of people playing wood elves either.

      Amongst NPC, same but also the beast race : they are few in Skyrim and I think you have exactly 2 followers for each, one wedding option for each except for the Khajiit with non at all. 

      Otherwise I'd like to see more of the Snow Elves.

    • Being as the Falmer are all extinct save for their blind barbaric throwbacks that haunt the extint Dwemer cities, not too many Snow Elves to be had. 

      There are Sea Elves and another type out there (don't remember the name off the top of my head).

      Yeah but "Skyrim" was in the tags. I won't call Sea Elves overlooked, they are just not in the country at all.

    • True. I wasn't mentiong it as a 'playable' race, just context of the possibility of having a Falmer as a PC Race. The Merimer would be a better possibility than the near-Neanderthal Falmer unless one wants to run around blind and ugly or being mistaken for a hagraven. Or a small troll with too-few eyes. 

      Honestly, I keep waiting to see a surviving Dwemer. We had a surviving Falmer, and there is still an Ancient Dunmer (well... kinda). It would be interesting to see what the Sea Elves are like. The Altmer are in dire need of an attitude adjustment, and the Merimer have invaded them on a few occasions with some pretty decent results.

      Check out Yagrum Bagarn in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

    • Honestly forgot about that bloated bastard. While I wouldn't really consider him much a 'survivor' (wasn't he in a different realm at the time? having Ant-Man'ed the Snap and all), he was also extremely sick, bloated, on mechanical legs, and practically worthless. If you don't have enough to the horizontal bop with, you aren't surviving.

      I want a real survivor. Like a small colony off the far ass-end of nowhere that the Numdium God-Machine didn't obliterate.

      Like how Almalexia is the 'last' surviving Chimer because she happened to be a God at the time? Doesn't count in my opinion (because Vivic and Sotha Sil were in fact changed, Vivic into half Chimer/Dunmer and Sotha Sil going full Dunmer). Or Gelebor and Vythur for surviving cute/smart Falmer? Again, not surviving as they are both males and obviously not continuing the Dynasty (despite, like Yagrum, being thousands of years old when most Elves die off at somewhere between 300-400).

    • There's always the Rourken Clan. But in order for them to have survived what happened to the rest of their people, their "psychic link" would first need to be cut off.
