    If you're going to insult them about spelling (which I don't know where you came up with the that) you should at least spell "knuckles" correctly.

    I played a character named "Nuckles" in a play a few years back. I'm assuming it was a reference to the ugly shoes... oh, wait... that's "Buckles"... whatever...

    "Talos be with you."
    "What was that Ancano?"
    "Just saying goodbye."

    You can be a mage in either faction, but personally I'd suggest joining the Imperials. I have nothing particular against Imperials aside from them taking orders from the pompous Thalmor, but that's not why I say join them. Dude Talos was an ass. I read the Barenziah books and he definitely was a player who made her abort their baby (Elves can only have one or two in their lifetime if they're lucky) and altogether he was just a massive dick. Just... just read the Barenziah books and you'll find out for yourself.

    Honestly, for me it depends on my character. Current one is a Nord loyal to the Stormcloaks.

    Talos is the conjoining of 3 beings: Tiber Septim, Zurin Arctus, and Wulfharth. Tiber was a shifty guy but the others were honorable.

    There is a lot more to the game then that my friend. So it was explained to me like this; Think about the outcomes of each side if they reach they're goals, what will be the consequences... If Ulfric wins, the empire and the Thalmor will most likely wage war against Skyrim, trading one war for another. If The Empire wins, there will be peace for a while. Choose: (War & Hatred) or (Unity & Peace)... Also if you listen carefully to what General Tullius says, you will find that he dislikes the Elven dominion just as much, but he has seen the bigger picture: war after war after war is not what he wants for the people of Skyrim.

    The empire actually tolerates other races unlike stormcloaks who are pro nord and top tier racists, Alot of the empire is composed of unique ranks to some races like dunmer battlemages the infamous orc warriors((Which are said to be like juggernauts on the field)) khajit would be a rare sight as they tend to be judged for their...."reputation" but they would be given the benefit of the doubt and a chance to prove themselves so i can totally see a khajit empire mage. And you could wear a enchanted red robe and RP it off as a uniform. or DL a mod. Either or depends on how dedicated you wish to be i mean you can go as you wish but imo despite how beast my armor is i always use uniforms during civil war quests feels more realistic and the empire is kinda strict like a real military. But yeah stormcloaks is a hell no. They wouldent let you into their city let alone tolerate you in their ranks((By lore standards atleast)) and even if you ignore that fact they still treat you like garbage. Unlike the empire who are a bit harsh at first like any military but you earn respect and become a war hero....no matter your race.

    I'd always pick Imperial over Stormcloak.... The Stormcloaks feel a bit too neanderthal to me. I like the medieval feel of the Imperials... Plus they're not a bunch of racists

    Well, might as well throw my opinion in with the others: I chose to join neither side. Oh, and before you read further, allow me to warn you, for those who haven't gotten as far as I have, or have chosen another questline, or other such reasons: SPOILERS AHEAD


    This was, at least, my choice for my first and primary profile (Khan the Khajiit), and I will eventually use my other profiles to see what each faction has in store.

    I have been an imperial prisoner since Morrowind and this time they actually tried to execute me . I don't even know what I did wrong.

    Why would I not join the stormcloaks ?
    I don't care about the true sons of Skyrim , I just wanna kill imperial scum. Revenge is long overdue
