    Well met hunters, Capricorn here with an interesting topic today. In the end times, when Alduin returns to devour all, when the sun sets and the eternal night is nigh, and when the world shall listen, and when the world shall see, and when the world remembers, that world shall cease to be; Who will you serve by action, or who will you serve on knee? As we all know, the elder scrolls world is filled with mystery, and dark things and entities. None so, more than the dark, and enigmatic Daedric Princes. No doubt you've each had your own unique encounter with one or more of these bethesdan badasses, but when it comes down to it, if you had to serve one based on what you know about them, and their sphere of influence, who would it be? Would you kneel in terror to the lord of domination, or would you stand by the lord of the hunt's side, and chase prey for eternity? The choice is yours, but know that in the end, whoever you choose for whatever reason, you're soul is forfeit to their purpose and their devices.

    Ladies and gentleorcs, the results are in and we have our winner. But first a few honorable mentions. First honorable mention goes to...The Worm King, Mannimarco! Who despite not being a Daedric prince, still managed to garner a few votes. Second honorable mention goes out to Zonnonn, for being the first one to call who he thought the winner would be and he was right! Last honorable mention goes to Henson for guessing correctly as well. Now without further ado, your Daedric Prince of all Princes, he is "The God of Tits and Wine!"-special thanks for this title goes to Axius Revan and Game of Thrones favorite dwarf Tyrion. The Daedric Prince of Debauchery, Sanguine!! In second place, voted most likely in High School to read tentacle porn, the Daedric Prince of fated to come in second to a drunk, Hermaeus Mora! Tied for third place is Hircine(sorry Sotek, I'm equally upset), Malacath, Meridia, and Nocturnal. Tied for fourth place, two thirds of the reclamations, Azura and Boethiah, Clavicus Vile, Jyggalag, Molag Bal, and Sheogorath(Karver I apologize, Oblivion was my favorite too, and I also loved everything about the Shivering Isles). And in dead last, with absolutely no votes at all, a tie between, Mehrunes Dagon, Mephala, Namrira, Peryite, and Vaermina. Thank you everyone for participating, and I'm sorry if your pick didn't make the cut. But let's face it, it's my poll and I say Hircine won, so there, haha! As always, I'm Capricorn, Swift Hunting! XD

    If I was forced to make a choice, Hermaeus Mora. While I don't like the idea of being eternally bound to a deity, Herma wouldn't be so bad. Because who doesn't want infinite knowledge?

    Mannimarco would be another option, because necromancy rules.

    If I was forced to make a choice?

    Hahaha There is no choice for ones like us. Hircine Paws down.

    Eternity in the Hunting Grounds?      Check

    Werewolf form?                                         Check

    Freedom to howl on the blog?              Check

    Aela my eternal Mate running by my side? Check, check and triple check.

    Paws up if you're surprised at my answer.

    It would be difficult for me. On the one hand I'd want to go to the Hunting Grounds, but on the other, as an orc, I still revere Malacath. Heres the deal Hircine, you let me bring my battleaxe, some orc huntresses, and a few barrels of ale, you can count me in XD

    Ermmmm   Battleaxe? Wolf spirits don't need no battle axe. We have fangs and claws. Ale and meads cool though. Don't forget the dog bowls, Red's a bit partial to mead ROFL

    Well I didn't say I'd use it to hunt with, I'd just bring it along for fun, plus the orc huntresses can sit and polish it while I hunt and drink ale XD

    Probably Meridia. Most of my characters tend to be 'good', with a general belief that protecting and bettering the world is sort of the way to go, even if they don't manage it themselves. I also find zombies, draugr, and Vampires to be pretty unsettling, so I like to be able to have weapons/magic on hand to slaughter them quickly so I don't get freaked out. Meridia being a comparatively good Daedra and having a gorgeous realm would work pretty okay for me.

    Meridia being a comparatively good Daedra

    She did give an army to arguably one of the evilest, cruelest elves to exist.

    Jyggalag. The lore surrounding him is so enthralling and tragic. Forever in opposition to his own actions, going back and forth between two completely contradictory beings.

    I never trusted Meridia for that sole reason.

    I would serve Azura. She isn't too bad and gives me premonition options of bad stuff like the red mountain. She is pretty cool. Dunmer ftw!

    There's not even a shade of doubt for me: Hermaeus Mora. Spending eternity in a place full of books and with no one around but seekers shuffling about in complete silence... what is Paradise if not this?))

    Sanguine, it sounds like a great deal!

    Eternal partying? Yup!

    Lots of alcohol and presumably drugs? Yup!

    Loads of sex? Yup! 

    If that's not the best deal ever I don't know what is!

    But wouldn't that make you a Seeker? I think I prefer my eternal servitude to be done with out the Dragonborn randomly conjuring you, but to each their own.

    Hermaeus Mora, because knowledge is power.

    'The fire is mine: let it consume thee,

    And make a secret door

    At the altar of Padhome

    In the House of Boet-hi-Ah

    Where we become safe

    And looked after.'
