How To Be A Stereotype

Based on what I've seen around on the internet, here are basically the stereotypes for each race:

Nord: Skyrim-loving n00b who runs around hacking, slashing and generally being dumb. Will wonder why he can't use shouts.
Preferred Class: Dragonknight

Dark Elf: Dark elves are, like, so cool! They're all dark and moody and stuff. They can be really sneaky, but they're, like, magical too!
Preferred Class: Nightblade/Sorceror

Argonian: Sneaky/snipe-y/stabby types for people who want to look like velociraptors.
Preferred Class: Nightblade

Breton: Generic, smart, white, pseudo-medieval battlemages
OR
leet ninja assassins.
Preferred Class: Templar/Nightblade

Redguards: The, um, black people. And they like weapons and stuff?
Preferred Class: Dragonknight

Orc: Giant, bloodthirsty warrior of doom. Never met a man whose head he didn't smash in with a mace.
Preferred Class: Dragonknight

High Elves: Smart, racist jerks who are good with magic
AND/OR
"pretty elves".

Wood Elves: People who want to be Legolas (see "pretty elves", above)
AND/OR
a sneaky bow sniper.
Preferred Class: Nightblade (Am I noticing a trend?)

Khajiit: Sneaky thief/assassin types who think wood elves are too cliched and Argonians are too weird
OR
furries.
Preferred Class: Nightblade


Of course, this doesn't mean that I agree with these stereotypes, or that everyone fits them. It's just the sense of stereotype I'm getting.

What do you think? Anything I've forgotten?

I have one MASSIVE complaint:
Why isn't "sneaky" spelled "lolstelth"?

Lurks-In-Shadows - The Thief.
Jo'Rakha - The Cleric.
Xefrenos - The Werecrocodile.

Probably something like "The middle road- even more boring than Bretons".

Someone is jealous because they can't discern a triangle from a square.

Pretty damn accurate! Except you forgot the part where the dunmer fans loved morrowind and that the khajiit are drugged up kittehs


Death to Queen Ayrenn!
Down with the covenant!
Glory to the pact!

Xhuvara - Argonian guerrilla fighter and leader of the shadow fangs

Azhir - Redguard knight dedicated to the art of war

It's utterly imperative that if you play as a Nord, you run around screaming things like "For Ulfric!" or "For Talos!" even though neither of those people is going to be born for literally hundreds of years. You MUST do this. Be as lore-unfriendly as possible. If you can get someone to rage at you, all the better.
