Hello, Skyrim Forums. I am not very vested in the lore of Skyrim so I would like to know a bit more about the StormCloaks and Imperials. Why are they fighting? Who or what are they fight for? Are there benefits for joining either faction? Will certain people attack you on sight if you join the opposing faction? Example: If I am a Stormcloak will Imperials attack me? Thank you very much.
