    Wait, I'm confused. Are we talking "mythological perspective" in terms of - literally - the Dunmer perspective on their mythology?

    What about the inane Dark Brotherhood questline?

    Getting rid of the emperor changes absolutely nothing, I actually enlisted in the legion after killing the poor guy. Pretty fucking retarded.

    Even the dudes I had been fighting previously, those occulati or whatever, simply ignored my presence henceforth

    so, did they use a unique NPC for the Emperor or just reused some generic Nord NPC like they did with Pelagius III?

    He looked like that one Greybeard guy.

    ... although they did use a separate voice actor for the Emperor instead of the same old boring "imperial" voice. A mod will probably come along that changes the phrase he says to "You are the one from my dreams" before he dies.

    "If the Emperor is killed before the conclusion of the Legion's questline, Jarl Elisif will not be able to be named High Queen of Skyrim. "

    The problem comes the Dunmer mythology is still Altmeri based and even if Boethiah changed things and later the Tribunal its still rooted on Altmeri belief.

    The point I tried to make is there is no reason to why the Nevarine have to be Dunmer, in fact the game does pushes it for the Nevarine to be a outlander (outsider).

    I finished the Legion quests and took Windhelm pretty early on, then did the main quest, and eventually did the orphanage quest & wiped out the bruddahud. At no point did I see anything happen relating to Elisif being made the new Queenie. If you talk to her about the subject of High Queen, she just uses the same line about how it might happen once the war's over. :M

    No bug, just Bethesda being Black Isle Bethesda. I think one of the Solitude guards might have mentioned that the war had ended, then they all went back to asking me if I'd heard about a dragon attack in Kynesgrove (after killing Alduin).

    ...and that's why the thread is aptly titled "30 hrs down the drain" and not "30 hrs of quality time", I guess. :thumbsup:

    And of course, everyone asks the guy who personally cut down Ulfric Stormcloak if he's going to join the Stormcloaks soon.

  16. I didn't kill the Emperor until I finished every other major questline in the game (Main quest, Imperial Legion, all the cities etc), and I couldn't talk to Elisif about her becoming High Queen because she thought the war was still on. Like everyone else is saying, Bethesda didn't put in any consequences to your actions.

    Remember in Morrowind how after you killed Dagoth Ur everyone called you Nerevarine and commented on how the Blight was gone and Red Mountain was all calm again? None of that in Skyrim.

    They did fix the tree in Whiterun though, that was pretty cool :lol:

  18. The most annoying thing is all is those effing dragons are still flying about even though Alduin is dead. I can understand leaving the dragon lairs in so people can get enough souls for all the shouts, but honestly, couldn't they have written into the code that when you get past a certain quota of souls, dragons stop appearing?

    People prolly want to grind Dragons for all 100 shouts or something. But yeah, once you get to a certain level and/or MQ point, you're getting attacked by a dragon pretty much every time you leave a cave. It's incredibly annoying. I would go so far as to say that they're worse than Cliff Racers at this point.

    I was attacked by a bunch of thugs carrying a note from Olfina Gray-Mane saying that they should give me a good kicking.

    No idea what I did to her either, after all I had even agreed to find Thorald Gray-Mane, who should be related too her.

    Maybe she thought I was taking too long...

    I get the assassins, too, by the way.

    Dunmer PCs in Morrowind would still be an outlander. I even think there is a line about your dialect giving you away as one.


    I hate how Morrowind forces you to be an Imperial spy to begin the mainquest. Fucks with my larping.

    the basic mythology yeah, but their beliefs are not at all similar to those of the aldmer, which is the reason they left. and the temple teachings (most likely), especially those of vehk vehk MC (most definitely) are very different.

    though we sadly have not much indepth knowelege about aldmer/altmer culture and religion. besides knowing that most of them dream about a world were time is a garbled mess and some of them practice racial hygiene
    true. one of the prophecies even speaks of a "dragon"(empire) born outlander.
