What if you are actually a descendant of the dwemor race and have ancestral knowledge about opening the locks. :O
User avatar #27 to #6 - dustyshane (06/29/2012) [-]
Ancestral knowledge? To open a ******* Door/chest?

You're looking way too deep into this.

Also, I read your other comments. All Dwemer would only breed with themselves, They believed themselves supreme, thus no mating.rape of other species, and even attempted to create their own god.

They didn't exactly go extinct, they just, disappeared. No one knows at all, not even the last Dwemer alive, Yagrum Bagarn, where they went.

Also, Nords would not normally mate with elves. There are barly any examples in the Elder Scrolls where there are severe cross race species.
User avatar #34 to #27 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
*sighs* All I wanted to do was make a little conspiracy joke...I had no intention of looking deeply in to it. It does not matter how supreme a race thinks they are, like I said below, there could have been that one individual that left. Also, unless the lore specifically states "they never bred with anybody else, not a single one, ever" then it remains possible.

The nord/elf was just an example (in-game book called racial phylegny -spelling, sorry- that used it as an example)

But fine, I give up. I can only back this up with theories and possibilities, there is no proof against or for it. **** , this is like a religious debate on whether a god exists or not.
User avatar #57 to #34 - dustyshane (06/29/2012) [-]
If it was just a joke, fine I guess.
I but guess you're right that it could be possible. But, I very much doubt they would've mated with any other race according to their hatred toward them.

All of the Dwemer had the same opinion about things, which is May be why they all disappeared at the same time, for created a new god. (that is only one of the theories, but it makes the most sense).

I think the only race they would have the opportunity to mate with is the Falmer or Chimer.

And if you din't know Chimer is what Dark Elves Were before Azura turned them into Dunmer. They had Gold Skin and blue/gold eyes.

no, dwemer were a type of elf, but went extinct
User avatar #13 to #10 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
you can be a descendant of something extinct. Extinct just means that certain species is not around anymore. If the dwemor mated with something else, and produced a halfling, this is a new species.
#14 to #13 - irishlawyer (06/29/2012) [-]
but none of the species are, all elves are related to each other by some distant ancestor, but the dwemer are not said ancestor
User avatar #15 to #14 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
I was making a conspiracy theory stating you might be a descendant of a dwemor instead of the locks being based off the dwemor locks, thus making you have ancestral knowledge of how to open them...

Are you even reading this :|

I am not saying anything other than making a conspiracy theory...I have no idea why you thumbed me down for that.
#17 to #15 - irishlawyer (06/29/2012) [-]
1. it would not happen
2. i didn't thumb you down, dunno who did
User avatar #18 to #17 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
I don't see how it wouldn't happen. Nords can mate with elves and produce fertile offspring, so why not dwemor + something else?
#19 to #18 - irishlawyer (06/29/2012) [-]
but the dwemer and snow elves separated their society from the rest of tamriel...
basic elder scrolls lore
User avatar #20 to #19 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
Just because a society separates itself doesn't mean each and every individual did too. Look at orcs, while they are not extreme isolationalists, they do mate with other species (not sure about fertility on that part)
#22 to #20 - irishlawyer (06/29/2012) [-]
no, the dwemer were so different from the other species (besides snow elves) that each one would shun the others
User avatar #23 to #22 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
Well we know the dwemor tortured the snow elves, it is also possible there could have been rape there, so dwemor + snow elf. Let us say the rapist was female and the snow elf being raped was male. This dwemor female got pregnant, had a child. She did not want to be shunned by her society so she goes to the surface world and disposes of the child. She tells people she had complications during birth and lost the child. A hunter happens by, finds the child and raises it as his own. It is highly improbable, but possible. Heck it could have been a higher-class dwemor + lower-class dwemor, and the same thing could have happened.

tards these days...
User avatar #25 to #24 - xinsai (06/29/2012) [-]
So you refuse to believe at any point that a SINGLE individual would not leave their society, that nobody - not a SINGLE one - didn't want to live in that society? Really? Your logical process is below that of a bible thumper.

The best is when you find food in them. . . . FRESH FRUIT ANYONE!?

The Dwemer had excellent hot-steam driven freezers.

Actually, all of Tamriel's modern locks are based off of Dwemer technology.
#41 to #9 - kraetyz (06/29/2012) [-]
Basically this. Too bad they couldn't figure out how to use anything else in the Dwemer ruins... For 3 ******* eras.

Seriously, the technological stagnancy and the deterioration of magical knowledge in Tamriel is just sad. For three eras they've been stuck on basically the exact same level of technology, even though supercool Dwemer **** is like, right next door. During the course of the Third and Fourth era (all we've been able to see), spells and entire schools of magic have been neglected by wizards and fallen into obscurity.

Why is there no more mysticism? In Morrowind, that spell tree seemed very well defined (if a bit useless). There is no reason other than laziness on the part of magical theorists that this school of magic should just disappear.

And yes, I'm aware it is a game design choice, but there's no rational explanation other than decadency and stupididy in-game.

You know what you're talking about and used Dwemer instead of Dwarvern.

Great job.

Going underground to those ruins always freaked me out. But the booty was pleasurable

maybe the dwarves originally invented the locks, and were then adopted by all other races?

how about some logic? you have no way of locking **** , you find a lock and your replicate it? hurr

Level 100 Lockpick skill, can open any lock

Except for locks you can't unlock.
#55 to #44 - jhoelzler (06/29/2012) [-]
level 1 skill can open any lock you moron, it depends on how good the player is with a lockpick
#63 to #55 - Clonious (06/30/2012) [-]
That wasn't my point, sir. Perhaps I was to vague in my attempt to convey my disappointment in the fact that despite being a master lock picker, there are still lock's you can't unlock. Usually lock's having to do with a quest line that they don't want you to get into until the right time, but it's annoying non the less.

On a sidenote: Just finished dawnguard. Dawnguard faction is best.

Goddamn xbox gamers and your stupid awesome games and early release dates, you make me sick.

Hey hey. You get BF3 map packs early. I don't care about the MW3 stuff, don't play it. But 30 days IS crazy.

Bunch of guys shooting each other with different weapons, respawning all the time until time runs out.
User avatar #61 to #60 - shallowloqi (06/29/2012) [-]
Well, that's extremely general. What about the destruction engine, the vehicles, the perks, the story, the maps. That stuff isn't generic.
User avatar #62 to #61 - isradam (06/29/2012) [-]
Small details that make the experience slightly different from other shooters. In the end, it's just another way to shoot someone.

What I want is a good mmo that combines the best aspects of shooters and hack n' slashers. Sad part is, there was a game like that, called Exteel. **** was the best game I've ever played, but it got closed a couple of years ago.

dont get mad my xbox ******* out and I cant play it unless my friend comes over

anyone else hoped that the dawnguard dlc brought some dwemer to the game?

I don't want to visit those ******* dungeons again.
I hate them.

Wait... what? I remember Snow elves, but no Dwemer.

I'm more surprised by the locks on Falmer chests.
