Did you complete the Dark Brotherhood? Because if you did, I sure hope you see the irony in your comment.

Pro-imperial here too, btw. But just because Ulfric was a racist dickhead.

Technically, you can still complete the quest line without killing the emperor.

Kill Grelod > Kill Astrid > Tell the imperials > Raid sanctuary.

i would love to be a stormcloak, but they could never take on the thalmor they would need the empires help, and they're very racist to my wood elf character.

maybe the resistance in Hammerfell will take control and make a pact with Skyrim. :3

After finishing everything in skyrim you're more powerful than a super saiyan Kratos, i doubt one little empire would be too much to handle.

Empire would like to worship Talos, it's just the High Elves (Thalmor) won't have any of it.

I noticed something. You're either guildmaster, or listener or some kind of title for everything but "Dawnguard" of which you are simply a member... or perhaps it's "Has the biggest member of the lot of us", a title announcing to the world that you've grown a pair larger than any other member in your travels and have earned the right to sit as their champion.

what armor is the harbinger wearing?

Wolf Armour, you get it from the companions.

How can I get it? Only time I've been in contact with one was a partial one I took from the one who stormed a Silver Hand camp and got killed.
User avatar #113 to #31 - trimageryan (07/04/2012) [-]
That specific looking armour is a mod, but a very very similar armour can be acquired by joining the Companions who have their headquarters in Whiterun next to the keep and the shops.
User avatar #16 to #15 - zoopityzop (07/04/2012) [-]
it looks different in the pic...
User avatar #17 to #16 - trimageryan (07/04/2012) [-]
It is a remix version, basically the colours are just amplified a bit. It's the same armour though.

User avatar #32 to #10 - redblueyellow (07/04/2012) [-]
Most stormcloaks are pretty recist. Ulfric being the king racist. It's the main reason I joined the imperials. I couldn't really care who's on the throne, but because Ulfric (and most stormcloaks) are just plain racist and uberpatriots I joined the imperials.
The imperials are so much simpler. O, we tried to execute you? yeah sorry for that, but are we cool now? People accidentily trying to kill you in bethesda games isn't really new, plus the imperials don't give a **** about religion and I'm okay with that.

This turned out way longer than I planned to. sorry
User avatar #51 to #32 - mishmash (07/04/2012) [-]
I joined the stormcloacks because of Ulfric's racism. It makes me laugh. Even though he's racist to me on many occasions.

you can buy it from Euorland Gray-Mane at the skyforge
User avatar #11 to #6 - Sanguinarian (07/04/2012) [-]
it looks extra bluish green, the kind you buy from eurland is like a brownish
#4 - BenniEGHR (07/04/2012) [-]
how does that companion armour?
I have wolf armour but looks **** in comparison

also, im imperial because i can sit back and think of the future of Tamriel over the power-crazy words of a Racist Megalomaniac
User avatar #34 to #4 - redblueyellow (07/04/2012) [-]
The stormcloaks don't think about the future. They're just "hurdurr skyrim belongs to nords, hur durr we racist".

The imperials are smart and think about the future. They are willing to set aside one god to prosper in the future. Plus they're not recist. Very important.

Can you explain to me what would happen if our alliance with the thalmor was broken?

Never looked into the lore too much
User avatar #458 to #158 - redblueyellow (07/05/2012) [-]
From the information I've gathered it's a peace treaty made after the war. It was made because both sides (Empire vs Thalmore) saw that the fighting wasn't really going anywhere and the situation on both sides began to get worse. Thus they decided to have a peace treaty, but because the Thalmor did have the upper hand in the war, they wanted the peace treaty to include the banishing of talos worshipping (they did not see Talos as a real god, but simply as a man made a god. The thalmor look down on everyone who is not their own kind, so they wouldn't accept a "puny" "man god").

The imperials could live with the Talos banishing, but the Stormcloaks felt it was part of who they were and wanted to get their right to worship their god back. I think this is completely understandable, however, since I am not religious, I believe the wellbeing of men should come before religion, which is the imperial view on things. I honestly have no problems with the stormcloaks fighting in what they believe for, but they can try to be lesser dicks when doing it.

Hope this helped!
User avatar #536 to #458 - graphically (07/05/2012) [-]
Well you have to keep in mind that what we see as religion, in the Elder Scrolls universe, is actuality. The gods actually do exist and it's not just faith, and that the worshipping of the gods is what helps make them stronger. Considering Talos was risen to Aedra status, and supports the side of the Imperials, banishing him, would greatly reduce his influence on nirn, and thus weaken the imperials against the Thalmor when they decide to attack. For this reason I chose to side with the Stormcloaks.
User avatar #542 to #536 - redblueyellow (07/06/2012) [-]
I never truly realised that, the gods getting stronger through worshipping. Thats very interesting. But still, I side with the imperials. I feel I can just relate to them more.
#40 to #34 - anon (07/04/2012) [-]
You DO realize that Talos is holding the world together, and outlawing Talos worship is part of the Thalmor plan to weaken Talos, destroy the world, and allow them all to become gods, right?

Stormcloaks may be Nord-Supremacists, but they're the only think keeping the world alive.

i couldn't find a good picture of the actual wolf armor, i believe this is a retextured version.

Choosing allegiance in Skyrim is hard, the High Elves are just as bad as Ulfric, except there's more of them, and they have more power
User avatar #540 to #7 - sirgawain (07/06/2012) [-]
Imperials are puppets of the Thalmor ad the emperor is dead (If you kill him).
Ulfric is under Thalmor control whether or not he knows it, and the stormcloaks are racist dicks.
Thalmor are bigger, more racist dicks than the stormcloaks.

Kill them, Johnny. Kill them all.

There should just be an option to claim the throne and become the Dovahking.

Either way, the Thalmor lose because they are actually benefiting from the war. The problem, though, is that the empire has already lost to the Thalmor, meaning they are more likely to lose again. However, if Ulfric wins over Skyrim, and with Hammerfell rebelling too, they might have a chance against the Dominion.

The dovahkiin, and possibly a small dragon army, might help as well.
User avatar #541 to #80 - sirgawain (07/06/2012) [-]
The Dovahkiin and the "armies" he commands (3 dragons, dawnguard/vampire lords, dark brotherhood, compaions, College of Winterhold, etc.) could wipe out the Thalmor in a week.
From a non-dovahkiin standpoint, The Stormcloaks could not hope to defeat the thalmor in skyrim alone. Hammerfell is busy with the dominion already. If the empire began to be reunified, they could Aid Morrowind in its recovery, then retake the southern provinces and send relief to hammerfell.
With Hammerfell, Cyrodill, Eleswyr, Black Marsh, Skyrim, and Morrowind, Retaking Vvardenfell (and possibly Orsinium?) wouldn't be too difficult. With that, Summerset Isle would be the only place left that the dominion could hide. The Empire could then launch a massive invasion with armies from every province, and crush the dominion. THEN and only THEN should people worry about petty squabbles like Skyrim's Civil War. The best way for this to happen would be for the Stormcloaks and the Empire to come to a TEMPORARY truce, and then they could resolve the problems after the second Great War ended.
If the Dovahkiin expended all his efforts into aiding this, it would go by much faster, and, while the Greybeards would not approve of such direct use of his power, it would create a chance for peace to occur over a longer period of time.

Both parties are against the Thalmor, only the imperials handle the problem better. If you chose the imperials, the high elves won't bother you. If you chose the stormcloaks, you will have the thalmor and imperials chasing your ass.
User avatar #14 to #7 - BenniEGHR (07/04/2012) [-]
the empire are against the high elves, they just nearly beat them in the war.
In the game you can find some dialogue that explains, the peace treaty is only a way for the high elves to reinforce and re arm, and it gave the empire a much needed re cooperation, the high elves are so involved in skyrim because they know if skyrim becomes independent, the Empire is doomed, as well as the rest of tamriel.

so basically, who would you rather be ruled by? Empire or Elves?

when one of them said it, it generally pissed me off.
so what did i do? i walked away. i followed him from a distance, with my dark brother hood Armour on. I watched him walk all through out the city, greeting others and using his presence to keep the peace. He soon retired to the barracks, his shift over. i stalked him in there, jumping from cover to cover without making a sound. he didn't bother to take his armour off, but just laid down on a bed. He was skipping supper, there were no other guards in the room. i slowly walked over to his bed side, pulling my blade of woe from it's sheathe, getting closer and closer to him, staring into his closed eyes, keeping the laughter back from the slaughter that would soon begin.
He slowly open his eyes, sensing someone was there he saw me, and got wide eyed. I slapped my hand over his mouth to keep him from screaming. I did a shushing gesture with the blade, and stared into his very soul, soon to send it to the viod. a tear appeared from his eye, and i wiped it away.. leaned close to his ear, and said....
"i liek chocolate milk!
