And....that moment when I realize my only character who's joining the Stormcloaks, K'jharrl, who is a Khajiit because for role play reasons he has a major axe to grind with the Empire and I'm also waiting for a mod to come out where you can become leader because K'jharrl, despite joining...hates Ulfric's guts after a point.
Yes K'Jharrl, you are going to have some interesting adventures indeed.
Yeah it felt awkward when they talk about how much they hate elves and the like when one of my character`s was a Bosmer who I was roleplaying as a Valenwood rebellion leader who wanted a alliance with the Stormcloak`s to fight the Thalmor
Well if you think of the story the Imperials technically are the good guys sure they are bad at being in charge but they just don't want the Thalmor on them...again.While Ulfric really is just kicking and screaming like a toddler about how ba the empire is but will only rule under his own fist which as seen in his city is ruled by Nords while the others are beneath them which might start another Elf vs. Nord was but the Argonians and possibly Khajiit maybe get involved since Ulfric has low opinions of them as well.So all in all your on the good guys side my friend.
One of my many incarnations was a Dark Elf called 'Mirage', a heavily armored archer. She chose no side with the reasoning that 'their leaders behaved like children at the peace treaty summit, and their uniforms are too frail and tacky'.
