One day, I was hunting the majestic wildlife of Skyrim...as a werewolf...when I noticed a bit of a paradox:

Manbeasts are cursed/blessed to hunt with the Daedric Prince of the Hunt, Hircine. However, Nightingales are forced to guard the Daedric Prince of the Daedric Prince Nocturnal.

If I am a Nightingale werewolf, which afterlife would I end up in? Would one be more important than the other, or do I somehow do both at the same time?

You aren't the first person to ask this.

Basically, this is a part of the lore that is meant to be decided by you, the player. You can believe whatever you want to believe. Here are some hypotheses that I've heard:

-The Princes "take turns" or share your soul.
-The Princes fight for it.
-As Dovahkiin, your soul is property of Akatosh.
-As Dovahkiin, you are too powerful for your soul to be claimed.


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

I think that the ability to join and become the leader of every guild is an aspec in the game that actually did not stay very true to lore. In a realistic standpoint, If you were to join and underground organization, how likely is it that in just a few contracts you are the drandmaster of the guild? My thoughts on this is that in a lore-based mindset, you wouldn't worry about multiple daedric lords having claim to your sould because to get to that status with multiple daedric lords would be unrealistic, even for a dragon born. That's just my thoughts on the matter though.

I found this point interesting since Oblivion... but what actually bothered me is a little fact that no one in the game found it strange that you as a character, could be Mage and Warrior Guild Master at same time, sure if you are Battlemage, technically you could say you are Mage and Warrior... but still. In case of Thief and Dark brotherhood, i understand, since its secret guilds it would be strange if outside of guild any one knew who guild master is, so it make scenes that they get along.
Now when it comes to Deadric Princes, i always assume that Eternity is long enough for them to shear your soul in between them...

Daedric princes sharing sounds new to me.
Id say whichever was the most powerful prince would take your soul.

Maybe they gamble for it, or have some sort of competition.

As the Ur-Daedra, Nocturnal has first claims to any soul that has pledged themselves to her regardless of pacts with other Princes, this includes Werewolves.

After that, Hircine is next to claim all his souls.

Not sure what happens after these 2 though, guess it would go by who had the pact the longest.

Considering all the pact you can make with the Daedric Princes I would say Noctunal gets you because hers is the only pact that I can think explicitly states that your soul is hers in the afterlife the others seem to be more assuming that you forever belong to them.
Other possibilities I can think of is that they would, and could, divide you up. Or it just goes to whichever one you made the pact with first.

What if you where a werewolf Orc nightingale, made a deal with clavicus vile and the dovakiin? I would imagine you're soul would be chained up and they'd fight for it until the end of time. The dragon soul is valuable I would think

Not Set
they decide who gets the soul by having a round robin tournament of rock, paper, tentacle.
