    In a way or another, Bosmer are kind of hippies. Just an even crazier kind of hippies.

    And would you just wait the AD fully attacking Hammerfell with all their forces, not just a detachment of mer who crossed Cyrodiil.

    Nords were slaves too.

    NOPE! YOU made the comparison to real life. And ottomans aren't dark skinned. Nor do they have desserts. 

    North African Arabs.

    Those nords became Imperials from all the elf rape they got.

    Being dark skinned or having deserts doesn't even matter.

    I'll stop talking to you, it's useless.

    Kind of hippies? Most hippies are vegetarians. Bosmer are wholly carnivorous.

    And you attacked Hammerfell even after the Concordat and after a civil war in Hammerfell. You've had enough chances, though feel free to try again :P

    9 to 10 are killed.  There's 1. So, let's put in a population of 100, we take out something like 30 babies. 

     The Altmer have survived until these days, and they will continue to do so.

     Quantity does not define quality

    100 babies? cause if we do that, then we have only 10 babies left...

    and their numbers will keep decreasing, so......eventually, they wont even be a treat....

    Ever play nazi zombies?  The zombies are well sucky, but eventually, the player is overrun.

    The philosophy is the same. The only thing is that it's applied to something different from our hippies version. 

     And would you just wait, we'll try again. Maybe in the next game. So you will contemplate the power of the AD.

    Guys guys, enough of all these Elves, Bretons, Redguards, Imperials and Nords. Everyone knows that Orcs are the superior race!

    The AD doesn't have enough troops for another offensive war. Only just enough to defend.

    Well, we don't know how many times an Altmer copulates.

  • June 17, 2013 10:04 PM EDT

    they breed slow, so probably not a whole lot.

    Maybe they don't have it now. But give them some time.

    And we don't exactly know the situation in Alinor, and what resources they have.

    But we do know they breed really slow, and lost more than 70% of their troops.

    Humans, while also having lost many, can recover at least twice as fast as Elves in terms of manpower.

    The Orcs once controlled all of Hammerfell. Then the Redguards showed up...

    They can't even defend Orsinium from constantly being sacked.

  • June 17, 2013 10:15 PM EDT

    I literally just loled.

    For the record, only the 1st edition of the Pocket Guide to the Empire mentions that Altmer kill 9 out of 10 children...this Guide to the Empire is published at the request of Tiber Septim himself.  The 3rd edition was published at the request of Uriel VII (Emperor at the start of the Oblivion Crisis) and no mention was made of an Altmer eugenics program.

    The first guide is heavily biased, written with a fair amount of propoganda, particularly anti-mer, so I hold this "fact" to not really be proven.

    However it is written that Altmer and Dunmer do not reproduce very quickly, in spite of their longer life spans.

    +1 to the elves.

    Nords are the first race of man in tamriel, so they're obviously the best humans.
