    Default Which Elder Scrolls race do you relate to the most?



    I know there are many of you who enjoy role-playing games. One notable series in the genre is The Elder Scrolls series. Within this series there are many, as in dozens, of developed races both playable and non-playable. Much of the lore of the series is based off real-world lore and religions; the Nords of Skyrim being an obvious example, but there are also some more subtle hints to Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity throughout the series as well. In addition, there is a facet of the lore that seems entirely foreign to anything found on Earth yet just as detailed.

    In this context, races are pretty much mono-ethnic, so cultural traits are as important as physical features in deciding which race you relate to the most. I made sure I included all major races, including a few non-playable races that have had or still have a significant impact on the world of Nirn. I also limited my choices to mortal races, because obviously who wouldn't want to be a demi-god-like Daedra, Aedra, or Dragon?

    Here is a history of the world of Nirn, which includes the formation of the races. It is far more detailed than this, though.

    they're all quite unrelatable, the closest would be Breton .

    Imperial. I have always played Morrowind either as an Imperial or a Nord.

In France; while there's a significant increase in right-wing movements; socialists are still in power and are preparing to lift their blocks upon Turkey's chapters.

    Breton, though I like the Argonians since they can breathe underwater, and deep, murky water has always creeped me out.

    Back when I had an Xbox360 I'd play Oblivion and the add-ons (like Shivering Isles). I played as a Nord, but always thought myself more similar to the Breton character set. Reckon I did as such to entertain the history nerd in me while playing being a British Islander by descent (the mix of West&Northern Germanic and Briton).

    Dark Elves. Their ways remind me of those of my own people. And they're pretty cool overall.
    Second choice would be Bretons.

    I play a Breton mage and an Imperial illusionist assassin in Skyrim. In Oblivion I had a Breton mage and a Wood Elf archer. In morrowind I had an Altmer mage. I think philosophically I align with Dwemer though, who were pretty much the engineers and scientists of Tamriel before they died out. I hope we get to meet them eventually, in Skyrim there was so much Dwemer lore, expanded upon what we found out in Morrowind; it seems likely they'll occur in a DLC or a future game. I'm thinking of doing a Daggerfall play-through, the classic RPG style of the game and difficulty entices me. Although the amount of exploration seems limited, despite the huge over world, and that is what I mostly play Elder Scrolls games for. I'm not sure what race/class I'd play. Probably a Breton mage like usual.
