Why the Legion is the way to go

  • Once the legion group gets started I will note this discussion there. But for now it will stay here. There may be a few spoilers if you haven't been paying attention to the politics. 1- The legion had no choice in banning worship of tiber septim, they were looking out for the safety of its people. They didn't want to, but the thalmor would have invaded otherwise. Thus, the motivation behind the stormcloaks is insensible. Skyrim will have to fight the thalmor as well. 2- Ulfric Stormcloak assassinated the high king of Skyrim. The only reason of doing this was, quote, "to get the attention of the other Jarls". There are plenty of other ways of getting attention. Murder is unreasonably extreme. 3- Many nords were happy the way Skyrim was without the stormcloaks. They were safe, happy, and could secretly worship talos. The stormcloak uprising brought civil war, bloodshed, and forced the empire to crack down on tiber septim. 4- The legion armor is awesome. That was my selling point! Now, keep in mind this is a personal opinion. Please respect mine and I will respect yours. Pleaded post your thoughts civilly below!

    1. So you would rather the thalmor attack the empire and rule brutally over the nords, while most were happy the way thing were before? There is no doubt the thalmor would win. So why rebel, weaken your own forces, create a new p...  more

    1. Weakness of government is no reason to compromise your beleifs and values. This should be a huge issue to the Empire (he was their emperor, after all) but they gave in. However, to the Nords it's denying their very heritage. Talos was their hero, the N...  more

    After initially siding with the Stormcloaks following the head chopping incident, and after meeting Ulfric, I've decided to keep the Jagged Crown for myself.  I have a feeling that Ulfric will try to force the Jarl of Whiterun to his side and attack the c...  more

    Imperialist bully! I will meet you for a duel at the top of the Throat of the World!
    Something about their arrogance makes me want to side with the Stormcloaks, unless you have Darth Vader on your side.

    I kind of agree, but i really doesn't matter to me seeing as I'll soon be making a high elf that will side with the legion just as my khajiit has sided with the rebels this time around. Since I'm playing both sides, as I'm sure almost everyone here will e...  more

    @Zalthor- that 'nasty female' is my commanding officer rebel scum!

    Just joking. Try talking to the legion in castle dour. They might be able to straighten you out! Again I kid.

    Yes, you have a very good argument there William. I've reached Solitude and met with High King Torygg's widow but I've also met with Ulfrik Stormcloak and so far I'm leaning more toward Stormcloaks than the Legion - after all it was a nasty female legiona...  more
