Since the alliances in TESO have been revealed i have always wondered why Skyrim has joined the Ebonheart Pact. Nords hate all elvenkind and Skyrim is to far away from Black Marsh. I always thought it would make more sense for them to join the covenant. Hammerfell and High Rock on the other hand are both on the borders of skyrim and are both home to Human races.

Half of Skyrim has joined the Pact, only the land under the Skald Kind/ questioned High King Jorunn. And the reason, the forces of the Eastmarch and of the Rift joined with the Temple forces of Morrowind and some Argonians, who happened to be around, was the cause of pushing back anohter Akaviri invasion.

The nords do not 'hate all elvenkind'. They dislike them because of the part played by the elven gods in the death of Shor, and because they have fought them since before they first began to think of themselves as 'Nords'. However, they are also a practical people, and they also know that the Dunmer are good warriors, and they respect that about them.

They joined the Pact firstly because the three races worked together in defeating the Akarivi invasion of 2E 572, after which good relations were established. In that sense, they are the oldest of the factions and have spent more time working together, hence getting over/around racial issues.

Finally, they have the same goals. Morrowind, Skyrim and Black Marsh want to rule themselves in their own traditions without outside interference. The Covenant, on the other hand, wish to usher in a new era, a new human led Empire in Tamriel. If the Nords joined the Covenant they would be part of an Empire and not independent. This final point to me is the most important. The way the Pact and the Covenant present themselves is entirely different. But as Idriar noted, not all members of each race are in support of the alliance.

It also just because those three provinces were the only provinces to have dwarven technology, therofore, giving that faction a technological advancement in bases and weaponry.

In case you didn't know, the Akaviri empire is the country of Tsacsi on the continent of Akavir. The other countries are Kamal, Ka Po Tun, and Tang Mo(Snow hell, tiger dragon, and 1000 monkey isles)


THE PACT IS COMING
