Are we the underdogs?

I chose the Altmer because I've always enjoyed them more. They're more realistic. They have faults. They have a treasure trove of lore and history that isn't the result of human benevolence, indeed, the Altmer have instead influences humans, particularly the Bretons.

Unlike Mer in other fantasy, which are generally treated as wannabe humans (Take, for example, Warcraft, where the greatest Elven family's daughters do nothing but bed humans; Lord of the Rings; Dragon Age) or are shown to be hopelessly inept without human guidance and sympathy, the Altmer stand for themselves.

I am so excited to walk Summerset Isle I can barely contain myself. I really want to see how the Altmer and Bosmer interact. I want to see how the Kajiit influence Altmer thinking. Most of all, I want to see proud and independent Mer not submit to human worship.

The Altmer are quite popular, atcually. But all alliances are together in this, I don't hate any other race. The Aldmeri Dominion is one, like all true alliances. I think it's to do with the Skyrim game and Solistiem DLC. Don't worry, you're all good.


I am in the Sacred Order guild, I fight for them and Ebonheart Pact only. I plan to take charge as General in Ebonheart Pact, as I plan to go to victory in all battles and war. Those who follow me will see what I see, those who do not, will see the ground they lay face-down on.

They picked 'the white human' because that's emeric... The guy leading the bloody dc.

That's definitely not High King Emeric. Emeric is fairly old with grey beard and hair, and he's certainly not that agile.

Or undead...
Those were just 3 promminent adventurers from each faction, not their leaders.

A lot of people are actually deterred by the Altmer. Bosmer and Khajiit may be their favored races, but they may want nothing to do with the Altmer and pick another faction.

Yea pompous jackass descripes hilariously our kind xD I think that this character of mine will be random kandyass among other AD members, eating mushrooms, sipping skooma and then causing havoc with unintended spell casting and weird enchantments. But seriously I really hope people put their heart on it and not just play generic character choices :) Tamriel will be more interesting place with variety.

I suppose, that some people chose, say Altmer, for their rich history, culture, and the fact that most humans wet their pants when they see some Altmer mages coming over a hill. It will probably be old TES players, steeped in the lore of Altmers and Nirm, as most of the 'new' players won't have a care in the world. With Argonians and Khajit it may be the whole 'cool, a lizard/cat' and some old players will be anksious to see the homelands of both. The problem are the Nords, most are very new playes, who have played Skyrim, and expect to use the Thu'nn every 2 seconds in battle. The Dummer will bring back the happy memories of morrowind. in fact I contemplated going to EP due to the Dunnmer, some may join for the look, etc. The Bretons, many will join due to the ability to relate to skin colour, and the portrayal of them in the video, although there will be many who are strong lore followers.
Simply put, in terms of numbers DC in the underdog, in terms of how they would do according to Lore, ED and DC don't stand a chance, in terms of real life, only time will tell.

Honestly I almost ALWAYS go with the Bosmer in every game, and always have. (And did again.) because I have a thick archery background and have done it competitively for years. Also I have always had an interest into the Elves in any type of fantasy-based game. To me, they are the oldest, most experienced, and most skilled race. I believe AD will not be the underdogs because it seems the base of players in AD are the more "Seasoned." (Quality over Quantity.) Again, that is my reasoning.
