Can you become a Jarl ?

#1ZanarkandZPosted 10/30/2011 12:33:19 PM

So I read somwhere that since the High King of Skyrim is dead, the leadership of Skyrim is divided by the 5 Jarls, and two of them are competing with each other to become the next king (One supported by the Stormcloaks and the other by the Battle-Born)

I also remember reading somewhere that you could be a Jarl, is this true or just speculation ?

Some one posted a few days ago about possibly becoming a thane according to the cover of one of the game guides but i dont think anyone really knows yet. I really really hope so though.

I found the description in the wiki http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Books:The_Elder_Scrolls_V:_Skyrim:_Prima_Official_Game_Guide

Becoming a thane is good too, I was having a hard time believing you could become one of the top 5 most important people in Skyrim

I don't know if you can become a Jarl, but it's been confirmed that you can become a Thane.

Well being a dragonborn already makes you one of the top people in the world. If i am not mistaken, all the the kings up untill oblivion were dragon born or dragon born decendents, and now you are the last one.

It is like a duke or a count.

I don't know about becoming a Jarl but I plan to be like Jarl, from the Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks. I mean that in the empowering and clandestine leader of the underworld aspect, not the rentboy part
