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. --- Beth fanboy logic: "This rat poison comes in a bigger container than this champagne, so clearly it's the better value." Duckyhunter
Wrong, the lot of you. They want to take over the world, they're clearly Brain. And those cats are obviously Pinky. --- Breakin' rules since the seventeenth century. I broke Rule 34. There is no porn of me on the internet.
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.
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. --- Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave.
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?
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. --- Dwarf shortage.
