oh boy time to post some gripes>character's race is 100% irrelevant to stormcloak storyline despite racism being their entire motivation
I mean at least add some extra steps to things because they don't trust your ass. Maybe a random encounter where a stormcloak soldier tries to kill you because they suspect you're a spy. You can go with the "you're one of the good ones" concept, but you shouldn't have to read that into the narrative, it should actually be in the story.>you are forced to engage in the civil war content eventually by the main quest
this is wack, just let the shit be separate and stop trying to force the lame quests on people. it's not like you can play the game for long without getting civil war quest hooks>major quest prompts dumped on you early on
at least dawnguard has a minimum level before giving you the quest hook
how the fuck do the Miraak cultists already arrive as soon as you get down from the mountain? they had to hear about the Greybeards calling you, which would take a while to get to them in Solstheim, and then they had to travel all the way to the middle of Skyrim.>Bleak Falls Barrow sucks
it's obligatory if you want to get any dragon souls and it's just boring and too long for how little it offers. The bandits stealing the claw had potential to be kind of interesting but other than Arvel the Swift none of them have any detail.>>21989>most quests don't have an alternate way to complete
The fact that the game ever once has a "supposed to lose" fight when you could encounter those guards at level 100 or whatever and maxed out every skill is extremely stupid. This is made worse by the few quests that do have alternatives like the dark brotherhood where you are supposed to magically know that you have a choice this time.
