    Paradoxically, joining the Imperials seems to be the anarchist's choice, as you can then get to kill both Ulfric and the Emperor...

    I joined the Stormcloaks and now both Ulfric and Imperial Legates (or whatever, the chiefs in the Imperial camps) are unkillable.

    The Empire is a bunch of rich pompous pansies that need to learn how to fight. I let my nord warriors go to the front line while i snipe those impirial dogs. They imperials are too easy t trick and need to get their ass handed to them. basicly the imperials are being like Custard at his last stand where the natives of the land wooped his ass.

    Yes, and they aren't friendly, and most of the people in that room seem to be unkillable, but it' a fun place to cast Frenzy. I think it's Solitude anyway. I guess they're under indefinite detention. :D

    Killing the emporer does not mean you do not support the empire. Its like liking Germany but killing hitler although
    Less so

    This is a response to the post I quoted above and your next post about the Imperials not being worth anything. Tullius' armor is light, or I would wear it as my old file, Wolfred. (I now use Likos, a light armor all Nightingale stuff charrie, and Scourge Wrathflame, who will end up Daedric, someday.)
    The Imperials are the prime fighting force of all Tamriel. They only exist because of Talos. Talos- or Tiber Septim, as he was previously known- was the emporer who made the land strong. You are an imbesile to even defend the Stormcloaks, since half of them are freaking farmers who were like "OOH I LIKE BLUE SUITS BETTER THAN RED!!1!" And both sides are easy to kill. I can do the whole civil war questline at either side on master difficulty at level One with either side's armor. The Stormcloaks are nothing more than untrained rabble and retired Imperials.

    Oh, and Flint, I find it offensive when people say crud like that. Hitler wasn't German. He was Austrian. (I'm a lot German, so yeah. I find lots of things like that offensive. Weirdly enough, I am mostly french on my mom's side and don't care if people make fun of the French... *shrug*)

    And...? The Emporer is Awesome, and I wish you didn't have to kill him. He is so calm, and kind... and not even a very fun kill. Getting to him is fun, but when they don't fight back it's too easy.

    If you join the Imperials, Tullius and all of the Stormcloak Generals stay unkillable. Although i found a way to temporarily 'kill' an Unkillable NPC. I haven't done it too many times, but basically, you have to 'kill' them with Unrelenting Force and they don't get back up, but will be alive next time you visit the area.

    I have to say, I felt like a real hypocrite joining the Legion after finishing the Dark Brotherhood questline but I felt like it was something I had to do to make the game feel complete and I just couldn't force myself to join the Stormcloaks.

    Ulfric is a power-hungry and savvy man who is manipulating the emotions of an outraged population and turning their attention away from the real enemy, the Thalmor, and towards the only thing that can save them from it, the Empire. A free Skyrim is just another part of the Aldmeri Dominion, in my mind.

    Ulfric is using the anger at the White-Gold Concordat as a means to his coronation, whether or not he truly believes freedom is what's best for Skyrim. He's playing politics.

    I can't join a man who quite unabashedly pushes his own cause to no end, even in peace talks, so he can gain more power especially when the results of his victory wouldn't be good for most people who aren't Nords. Not to mention my earlier point, the Aldmeri Dominion would smother Skyrim and use the land as another front against the Empire for when the Great War inevitably restarts.

    I am starting a game as a nord so I will be joining up with ulfric to wipe out the imperial overlords, power to the people! But my next game as any other race will be fighting for the imperial empire.

    :Dragonborn: The choice really depends on what you stand for as your own self. For all us nerds. I personally fought for the stormcloaks, because I didnt beleive in the collapse of an entire culture.I wasnt in it for Ulfric, he's to stuck up. Talos is my god on skyrim.I also believe yes Ulfric beat Torryg in fair combat such as my tradition.
    If i was ever to fight for the empire, they would have to step up and fight with us. Another reason i didnt was because i didnt believe in tulius calling us primative and judging us nords. But if maybe the stormcloaks allianced back with the empire in full faith of killing the last of the damned thalmer, like the old days when we were all together, a true empire.

    ALL HAIL NIRN!!!
