I have no idea which side to choose. I know the Stormcloaks are fighting for the Nords, but I've killed every Imperial I've seen so far because I hate them.

Orcs are dumb brutes, and to be honest, they don't care as long as they get to kill something.

Well... if you hate the Imperials, the choice is fairly obvious, no?

From an RP standpoint orcs are generally closely tied with the empire.
Stop arguing with me, I am clearly the better human.

Orcs tend to get along alright with nords though, its not like theres these huge wars between skyrim and the roc stonrgholds

Definetely go with the Imperials. It's the only logical way to go.

It depends, really. I'm roleplaying an Orc who had...a relationship...with a female Imperial back in Cyrodil. He was a blacksmith and decorated warrior in the Imperial Legion, but when his CO found out about the relationship, he had his home burned down, the female still inside. After a few years of searching, he eventually found out who ordered the "accident." He then killed his CO and fled to Skyrim where he was caught at the border. So naturally, he's not a fan of the Empire.

It's all about how you create your character and their back story. I don't like to think of my character as a blank slate at the beginning of Skyrim, they have motives and histories that pre-date their capture at the border.

Lore wise the Orcs are part of the legion and often join because the Empire immensely respects their skill as smiths and warriors.

I think an Orc could join either side. The Empire is the more powerful faction and naturally this would appeal to an Orc, but this also makes the Empire the greater opponent and a war hungry Orc would love to take on the big guy.
