A response to this thread.

So we've heard about the new "explorer pack" thing, and how if you pre-order you can do any race with any faction. This doesn't exactly sit easily with me, and some people have already noted that this could have lore-breaking results. Still, I got to thinking and I will admit that maybe this does add a bit of needed freedom.

So what are some matchups that would actually work, in your opinion? Explain your reasoning, or even provide a backstory if you like.

I, for one, could see an angry orc joining the AD, arguing that his/her race had been mistreated by the Bretons and Redguards for too long and that now is a good opportunity to take revenge on the races of men.

I could also see a wood elf or khajiit getting on board the whole "peace and wealth for everyone" bandwagon of the DC.

Imperials and anything. They're literally known as the race that can talk any other race into laying down its arms and being buddies. I've mentally created an OC Imperial for each of the three factions and made a plausible story.

Fair enough, although I must ask- what's the story with the AD imperial? I mean, the AD doesn't hate mankind, but they are pretty condescending, and it's a rare man who would swallow his pride and take their side.

Dunmer (probably Telvanni wizard) joining up with the AD, ready to rain fire from above with his/her elven brethren and enslave Argonians.

I would go with Orcs in EP. What self respecting Orc wouldn't want to rule themselves?

As a Dunmer who's done so already, I agree with this... Except for the part about the Argonians... I merely wish for them to keep out of breath-smelling distance... or seeing distance...

The Orcs would be great in EP, and a Dunmer in AD would be good too. Not because of elven reasons, but the combat and magic go together. That's about all I see at the moment, and PurpleSadPanda, I frankly don't give a crap, no one does. We are an army in EP, so deal with it.


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.

This might be kind of interesting after all, if you play the games you see this alliance break ups between each race in time to time. (if I'm not mistaken right?)

P.s AD's All the way! HappyThumbs_up

I must say that even if you can play any race in any alliace it isn't breaking any lore, it's just kinda natural, I mean, people travel around the world and move to new places. Is it wierd to see an Argonian in AD, no in my opinion it isn't.

And regarding the topic, I think an Argonian whould fit in both AD & DC, I can't se them come along well with Nords or Dunmer at all.

After getting used to the idea of every race I every faction, I kinda like the idea. The back stories people can make for characters now seem so endless and fascinating. I still don't want to see any Altmer in my faction, but that's just going to be my characters personal preference.

Well the hospitality of the Argonians is fantastic, they always offer me a cup of tea when I arrive and I've never heard them say a bad word about anyone! (Except the Dunmer of course!)

Does Beta have any race any faction, or is that just for launch? And do you think Breton on A.D. would be alright?
