I was a Nord before it was "cool".


You mean before you discovered that your favorite race had its hand in the cause of mass genocide? To re-open up my point, not 'every' falmer was out to get the nords, thats like saying in the current games time that every elf is a thalmor or thalmor supporter in disguise. Its false because even in real life it is incredibly hard to get a unanimous decision across the entirety of even one ethnic group or race.


That's also like saying that every Nord had a hand in causing genocide. There's Nords that work for the empire you know...

The vast majority of the people in skyrim are nordic if not brenton to a smaller count if not at that time Falmer too. So pinning this on the nords is appropriate. So if you want to be technical the "Skyrim Nords" had a hand in causing shameless genocide of another race.

Ahh I see, so technicalities should only be ignored when they don't work in your favor.

hmm? I'm not ignoring the technicality but i just specified to make sure there was little room for mistake. The "Skyrim Nords" were more specifically to blame at that time.

What I don't understand is that when Morrowind first came out, everyone hated Nords. Then Oblivion comes out, not many people enjoyed them there either. Now with Skyrim, everyone is always going on how they are the best class ever and how they loved them all the time.

No, its just people new to the series picking their favorite race and not knowing 'everything' in the lore and then trying to spout 'skyrim is for the nords' without realizing what went on.
