Title speaks for itself, so everyone just discuss!!!

If any mod see's this. For some reason when I made the thread it forgot to add two poll choices.

3. Played them in previous games
4. Natural Abilities/Skills

So if anyone could just patch that up for me.

I know im not "officialy" an AD member, but im gonna make a char for each faction. For my AD char im gonna play as a khajiit. Mainly because of appearences but lore also played a big part. I also kinda like the fact that theyre the strong arm of the AD. Cant wait to try this game out! :)

I'll be playing an Altmer in the Aldmeri Dominion.

I voted appearances because, who doesn't want to be tall and tan? Also, Natural Abilities/Skills because I always play casters and I like to min/max - not sure how that's going to go over with TESO's "class" system... I'm really excited to try it out though!

I chose Altmer because as the master race of Tamriel, they have some very nice stat bonuses for mage. I could make a bosmer alt too but I always liked CC classes.

I chose Altmer for many reasons. They are the most gifted with magic, and I almost always play a mage, I think that they're lore and appearance are good, and I am just quite fond of elves, always have been.

That is basically the same reason why i picked my Bosmer. Just change mage with hunter and there we go you got my reason!


I am the shadow within a shadow. I will accept any job; however I will execute the target, or maybe even the person who hired me; it all depends on who has the most gold to give. Even then you can not trust me to let you walk away with your life.

I picked wood elf because I always play as a stealthy archer, I also like their lore and ties to nature.

Appearance. I know the Elder Scrolls games elves aren't pretty, but someone called the bosmer pink pixie-like elves. I like that. I like dainty, and pretty, even if it's a kind of wild beauty.. I still like it. I hold out for beautiful elves, or at least options to make them beautiful. Altmer and Bosmer all the way.

Lore. I am really fascinated with the Bosmer lore, especially the Green Pact and their entire religious aspect.


I do think they look pretty cool in Skyrim, but they might look much more like "long eared humans" in TESO, we never know, so right now, the choice is mostly lore based.

The funny thing is, I really don't see Bosmer as pink pixie-like elves at all. To me, they're not really dainty and pretty, they're fierce and yeah, wildly beautiful ^^

I was originally going to play Argonian however, and while I'll definitely still have an argonian character, the previews we've seen of them in TESO so far put me off a bit, compared to how they looked in Skyrim.

Well you gotta understand that the Aldmeri Dominion in Skyrim is COMPLETELY different from this Aldmeri Dominion. Check this out...
