Imperials and Stormcloaks aside, can we all agree we hate Thalmor?

.....Literally none of that is true.

The Thalmor have absolutely nothing to do with Skyrim or Ysgramor. Ysgramor was way before the time of the First Dominion.

Who are muslims trying to wipe out the worship of, exactly?

I swear you people....


Why do you give in to the trolls?


Christ knows, I think I must've pissed him off. He's been stalking me all night.

Seeing as their goal is to blow up the world, I'd say they're most like Marvin the Martian.

I feel that the Thalmor rulers, like every other ruler, are just using their religion as a tool to gain influence and expand their empire. Ultimately all they believe in is power.

Wrong, the lot of you.
They want to take over the world, they're clearly Brain.
And those cats are obviously Pinky.

I don't like the Forsworn, or their weird reverse racism.


I actually sympathized with them, until I found out how screwed up their king was. Not to mention the entire idea behind Briarhearts.

The Thalmor actually have a point in wanting the world to end. Nirn is a thoroughly messed up place where things like cannibalism and human sacrifices are some of the most common crimes. They're still bastards, though.

Really? The Gestapo longcoats that some of them wear wasn't a dead giveaway to what Bethesda had in mind when designing these brutal racial supremacists?
#27Double00ZPosted 1/6/2013 5:27:30 AM
But isn't that exactly the kind of thinking that motivates the Thalmor against men in the first place? Am I opposed to them? Yeah. But do I hate them? No, I actually admire them. You've gotta admit, they are pretty good at what they do, and whether you realize it or not, they are genuinely motivated by beliefs you cant begin to comprehend, beliefs they have complete conviction in. Its a very authentic conflict if you can ditch the ignorance.

I still support my oppresive An-Xileel Argonian master race.


An-Xileel master race!

Also, I don't hate Thalmor, they are like atheist.


I'd say they're more like muslims.


Wha? They're clearly nazis.

And the only true master race is the Sload. ALL HAIL THE SLOAD.


All Glory to the Hypnosload. '_'

That and the English accents. Whenever Bethesda wants an antagonist, they tell their VAs to go watch Dick van Dyke (a name guaranteed to have all the mods flooding into this topic - hi guys! Sorry for the subtle racism in that last modded post of mine!) in Mary Poppins to pick up some pointers.

Seriously, it's like Bethesda want to tell you who the bad guys are - English accent + any possible Nazi comparison, however flimsy, = the baddies. They can get seriously patronizing sometimes.

Well the nazis wanted to invade europe. The Thalmor want to take Skyrim back after Ysgramor and his people invaded and took it.

I'd say they're more like muslims since the Thalmor are trying to wipe out the worship of Talos.


Are you high mate? It's one thing to accuse a bunch of radicals (Talibans e.t.c), but to generalise an entire religion/nation, man you gotta be high
