Think about it, in reality, if they stuck to the actual lore of Elder-scrolls.

any REAL threat, that rivaled that of the Daedra with the oblivion gates.

The hist would call back ALL Argonians. (Keep in mind, it was rumored that even argonians on other continents were to end up having swam back"

to not just end up repelling the daedra, but to storm their own gates, and force the daedric commands to shut them off, for fear of being destroyed.

not lets IMAGINE, if the Hist perceived any of the rival factions, as such a threat.


o the possibilities, would be endless.

can I get a flawless victory.

Why would the other factions be a threat to the Black Marsh? It's too poisonous to be invaded.

It's pretty much tactically impossible to invade Argonia. The only way I could think of would be to nuke them but then again that's not an option and there'd be no point in invading if you're just going to destroy the whole place.

True, Black Marsh will be the last to go, if someone plans world-dominaton. Lay siege to the whole country would be the way to do it, but facing an army of hist-powered Argonians would be nightmare for any General.

I reckon it'd take a truly catastrophic event to fully be able to take over Argonia. They're so self sufficient, that's where there true power lies.

BUT, there isn't much use in taking over black marsh, they probably don't mind as long as they're not wiped out.
Argonians could be culled, a slaughter of any Argonians found outside Black- Marsh, that would keep Argonians inside Black-Marsh if they became problematic.

Yeah, they'd be fine with it probably. Until they get angry enough to exact revenge and blitzkrieg through the enemy's land :P

No, I don't think Argonian's could take over any nation, unless they shipped loads of Hist trees around

Not take over, just cause havoc. But you never know, the An-Xileel are a relatively new government. They might become the most organised and powerful faction for all we know. I reckon in TES 6 the Argonians will have more lore to draw off of.

Nah, Black-Marsh has large sources of Ore deposits.

and if your looking for precious gems as well.

And supposedly, their lie ancient fonts of magic, that haven't been explored yet.

so besides that, not much to invade for.

What if that was a real threat? Don't you think total annihilation could be a reason for them to go on the offensive?

The Hist have always played a game of defense with Black Marsh. Why expend countless Argonian lives invading other provinces when their own borders are always so safe from invasion? The fetid swamp and the diseases all other races succumb to are natural protection for the Hist and their keepers, the Argonians. They win by playing defense, not offense. They have no desire to form an Empire - just to be left alone in peace and protect their own.

Of course. In that case every argonian on nirn would be hyped up on hist sap and ready to kill everything. After all, the oblivion crisis was a true danger. Oblivion portals opening up deeper in argonia than any other race had been before is a threat to the hist and therefore the argonians.

From what I understand, once the Hist called the Argonians back and evolved them into higher combat forms, the Daedra were so overwhelmed they closed the gates voluntarily and called off their invasion of Black Marsh. Even Oblivion chooses not to war against its full might when it plays defensively, which is its strength.
