And why should I pick one over the other? So far neither have shown me that one is better or worse than the other, they both have their bad and good qualities. Many say Stormcloaks because the name sounds cool, but I want to side for a reason, not the name. I'm a male Khajiit (Destruction mage) Please help me D: EDIT: I really want to keep being a mage so does one of them have classes or can I just stay been a mage. I only started playing 4 days ago and i have never played any other TES.
