If you will be playing as an Imperial:
1. Why?
2. Which faction are you going to join and for what reason?
3. Do you think there'll be 'Imperial Only' guilds, and if you think so, would you consider joining one?

If you won't be playing as an Imperial:
1. Why not?
2. Will you be looking down on Imperials because they weren't originally in your faction?
3. Would you accept Imperials in your guild?

If you won't be playing as Imperial:

1. I haven't order the Imperial Edition and I don't feel that is something special about them (I might upgrade later to got the horse as that is the only thing I found Yay! about Imperial Edition).
2. Nope
3. Yep

I will not be playing as an Imperial.

1. I have always had my main character planned as a Khajiit as they are my favorite race. I'm not one for making several alts either. The only alts I might make would be ones to either experiment with builds or explore faction territories that I have yet to unlock with my main and just can't stand the wait anymore. Even in this situation though, the only faction i might make an Imperial for would be DC just because I don't have a real preference for any one of the DC races over the others. But even that ends up just being a small chance of a small chance since my plan is to explore DC as my 50+ since, to me, it makes to most sense geographically.

2. Yes and no. For RP, my character doesn't see any real value in the races of Man so would "look down" at Imperials, along with the other races of Man. OOC no because why would I look down on someone for playing an Imperial? Because their preference for fictional characters is different from mine?

3. Depends on the type of guild that I would be in charge of. If it were an RP guild that had certain restrictions that prevented it (i.e. khajiit only, orc only, ect) then no, simply because they don't meet the criteria for membership in the guild. If instead it was a social guild whose focus was socializing with a community that may be spread across all factions then yes, because Imperial players can still be a part of that community.

1. Why?
Always played Imperial in TES games. Initially I was going to play a Bosmer though. Also been able to craft imperial gear from the get go and the perk of transforming any gear into imperial gear.

2. Which faction are you going to join and for what reason?
I will join the Dagerfall Covenant to RP as a refugee and have lots of Orc friends. Winking_grinning

3. Do you think there'll be 'Imperial Only' guilds, and if you think so, would you consider joining one?

Yes, I guess. But I don't like guilds. Every time I have joined a guild, no one is online. I would consider an Orc guild though. If they have a stronghold for RP purposes and allow an Imperial refugee.

The AD I think, and to learn magic and bow skills.

3. Do you think there'll be 'Imperial Only' guilds, and if you think so, would you consider joining one?

I never really bothered with playing them in the TES games because their racials were never anything to get excited about.

I plan on mainly playing a Breton in DC... well I plan to make one of every race (as far as character slots allow) but they are all going to be in DC now.

Most likely there will be Imperial Only guilds but I won't join them.

I actually almost always play as an Imperial, but my main character will likely be a Breton or possibly a Nord. I will have an Imperial alt.

Not playing Imperial.

1. I always play a Nord in TES and will continue to do so in ESO.
2. Not at all.
3. I don't see why not.

1. Yes, I always played Imperial in TES games for some reason and I wanted to play Imperial ever since I heard of ESO.
2. DC, with my guild.
3. Most likely, but they won't succeed IMO.

1. Why?
Yes. I think an imperial fits what I want to do with my character better. I'm very archetype oriented.

2. Which faction are you going to join and for what reason?
I will be joining the Ebonheart Pact. That's where my guild has determined we want to place our "allegiance."

3. Do you think there'll be 'Imperial Only' guilds, and if you think so, would you consider joining one?
I think there will be, but I don't plan on joining any.

Should add a poll

1- yes, I like imperials, why else would I pick one

2- DC, though I might change later

3- not unless they organize it early. Think the imperials will be few and far between especially since they'll be divided among three factions.

1. Why not?

When I first heard of TESO, I imagined my Skyrim/Oblivion characters in an MMO environment. Basically, I was going to play a Breton. When my RL friends decided that we'd be EP because they wanted to be Nords and Argonians, I chose Dunmer because it was my best choice of the three for what I want to do with the character. Now that the options are free for all, I still won't be playing as an Imperial.

2. Will you be looking down on Imperials because they weren't originally in your faction?

Not because they weren't in the faction, no, but because I sided with the Stormcloaks in the War for Skyrim. I know this is in the past before all of that, but Imperials tend to be dicks, lol, especially the Thalmor.

3. Would you accept Imperials in your guild?

I'm going to say yes because I don't do role playing like some members of the guild do. So if you're an Imperial and you like to do that, prepare for some haughty role playing, I guess? Otherwise, you can still do as you please. We don't discriminate among players, lol...

Just to clarify for you, Thalmor are not imperials, nor are half the of the faction in skyrim, lots of nords, it just goes by religious belief.

But I understand what you mean, they do tend to interfere with things.

Will not play as a Imp, because. I don't like the pay to play element and will not spend that much to play a race that was unplayable, not going to be part of the cash grab. Will just roll with my Nord and maybe a Dunmer.
