Faction & Race:
Daggerfall Covenant (Redguard)
This is strictly based off of my opinion and nothing else. If the AD where to take over, things wouldn't last long. The High Elves particularly, they require all races that aren't as intelligent as them to simply be their subjects to do with what they want. Lets face it no other race is going to put up with that except the ones all ready in the AD....and maybe the Bretons. They also try and force thier religion on to other all the damn time and (shot at my own faction, but there is truth to it and you guys know it)

When it comes to EP I don't see them ruling to well because, well they in essence have three leaders who don't like each other one bit lol makes for a great story but not good leading it would bring anarchy and chaos to the realm, which would be good for no one but probably very fun lol

When it comes to leading the right way I think DC has the right approach, Redguards want to be left in hammerfall to sort out there mess and the Orcs too want their home back and to be out of the affairs of man and mer alike. The breton are probably best suited to lead becasue of their give and take lifestyle comes from them being the best merchants and barging.

(AGAIN Just my take on things and I'm sure you have a very diffrent take and I'd love to hear it so all races please come and weigh in, try to limit the douchebagery please)

The High Elves don't force their religion onto anyone. If you're referring to Talos, he doesn't exist yet, so his worship hasn't been banned. Besides, the Imperials forced Talos worship onto the Altmer first.


By arrow. By blade.

By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.

The breton thing is misleading High Rock is universally viewed as one of the most backhanded, and corrupt places around. It is made up of many noble families who all hate each other and fight and or bicker constantly not including when they try to send assassins after one another. They may be the best merchants and all that, but they also have a tendency to stuff their own coffers first. When you look at the bretons you see a people who are so defined by politics and its workings that they are blinded to many sociological and common man issues. That is my personal take the empire would financially flourish for those who could make it and those who could not would be left to the wolves. I know a lot of people will disagree but the oblivion guide to empire that came with the collectors edition of oblivion said basically similar things though more kindly. In essence bretons are politicians and merchants who only care for what they can gain now this is not all of them, but it is enough to make their rule rather questionable.

The AD could be oppressive, but could with their strength bring a lot of stability in the region over time.

The EP most of them are more concerned with just being independent nations so they really would probably have someone on the throne who generally wanted to remain in cyrodil and rule while also allowing them to go back to their homelands and hear nothing from the empire other than trade agreements. I think they provide the most military style power they are also the most reluctant to actually take in the throne. Even in their description they are basically just fighting together for independence of each nation meaning that if one came to rule it would be someone who really wanted to focus on that land as theirs or would be someone they placed there who reluctantly took the spot which a lot of times is a good thing because it leads to someone who is self conscious and really thinks about decisions.

I think each has great strengths and weakness and I could go deeper into each, but in the end none of them will rule long and eventually Tiber Septim will come and put most if not anyone who rules during this turbulent time to shame.

The AD will probably seek to establish Elves as the superior race. That's a given. Their main goal is to keep humans from ruling because they view them as inferior beings.

No, instead they try to kill everyone...

Wait, just had a thought. We know what happens in the end, or at least a few centuries later as the events of Oblivion occur. Martin Septim was Imperial (forgive me if I got that wrong) so all in the Imperials win, maybe not in the events of ESO but later on in time they must retake the throne...

I find it funny that a dunmer talks about how bad the altmer are seeing as your race enslaved argonians if it came down to it I'd rather be dead with a sword in my hand then a slave. AD isn't a perfect government but we want whats best for Tamriel and I agree DC is all for themselves where will the orcs homeland but I don't think they'll take it out of high rock or hammerfell and the EP like it was said before would rather keep to themselves then get into politics though they are a fierce fighting force

About the dunmer enslaving argonians people really mistake how that works it is only wide spread and accepted completely by House Dres who is well the slave traders and captures slaves then there is House Telvanni who well they just don't give shits about anything honestly I mean in their own rules they are like if you kill someone obviously your right and they deserved to die anyways really some of the other houses just tolerate it because it has become a useful tool or staple and honestly it is no worse and no better than selective breeding and or infanticide so I mean really each race has its own moral agenda and or idea of good. Dunmer also have the highest loyalty to family and tradition going so far as to some family members bind them selves to this world and serve as a guardian of family homes for the rest of their after life. I mean so Dunmer have some very good points on devotion and loyalty when you gain their trust and brotherhood they are the most die hard about keeping to it even in spite of themselves.

Haha Let's all be serious for a minute. We don't know anything about what the races are like in the second century, because WE WILL BE THE RACES OF THE SECOND CENTURY.

Also, Talos, again, has not yet been born.

How are we in any way similar to Jehovah's Witnesses?

How about cultured race of fierce warriors, deadly assassins, and capable mages.


Quote:Wood Elves= Uncivilized Cannibal

They are as civilized as they want to be. Cannibalism is practiced ritually and religiously. Also, excellent hunters, archers, and assassins.


Quote:Breton= Civilized Gifted In magic Human/Elf

Not as much as Altmer. Call me when the Bretons build cities out of sunlight. Also, scumbag politicians.


Quote:Orc= Strong Goodwilled Blacksmiths

And they get their asses kicked repeatedly.


Quote:Redguard= Warriors of the Desert

We have the Khajiit for that.


Quote:Nord=Talos Loving Barbarians

Talos doesn't exist.


Quote:Dark Elf=Slave Loving Douchebags

This is TES. Your argument is kinda invalid.


Quote:Argonian=Mysterious Douchebag Thieves

Speechless


Quote:As you can see daggerfall covenant is the best

As you can see, your arguments suck. You only focused on the positive aspects of the Covenant races and the negative of the others. When you couldn't think of an actual insult, you just called them "douchebags".

Still drunk lowlife thieves

Civilized living in trees going on the "wild hunt"

Yes not as much as a Nazi but atleast when you cast a spell on them they dont die as eazily as a nazi altmer

By whom?


Quote:Redguard= Warriors of the Desert

We have the Khajiit for that.
Khajiits are Kittens , Just regular kittens they might be sneaky and small but there is no warrior in mundus better than a redguard


Quote:Nord=Talos Loving Barbarians

Talos doesn't exist.
in this game but play skyrim for 2 seconds and you'll see what they turn out to be

^^ did he just requote you? and added nothing else? What is going one here?!

Anyway, Lets keep the AD (esp the Altmer) into perspective. They are a lot less intense at this time because there is no real empire right now to have failed them. The reason they go all loko-crazy later is because of the Oblivion crisis, in which they felt left to their own by the empire, and a whole bunch of other horrible events (again, left alone to fend by themselves by the empire..). At this time, I don't think they will be as hard on men (though they would still see themselves as superior) because the men have not had as much time to prove how much they suck at ruling yet.

I think AD and DC would both fit well as leaders, but as you said, EP is kinda too mumbo jumbo to rule. How are they going to get all 3 parts of the faction to be happy when they are all so different?


‎I must not fear. Fear is the mid-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total annihilation. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
