Have the Imperials been wiped out then? Or have they followed the Dwemer? Whatever I'll be rolling with Khajit anyway. Maverick the Cat the still best dressed dude in all of Skyrim...

The Imperials are all walled up in Cyrodiil, getting their arses kicked by demons. I think that's the setup, anyway.

Sounds plausible , they were always the most useless race anyway......

The Imperials are most likely busy chasing after criminal scum, that's my guess anyway. Plus it wouldn't look right if one faction had 4 races.

If I end up getting this, I'll most likely be an Argonian or Redguard. Really regretting that I never went for the former on Skyrim now, I've always choosen that race. No, I had to go Nord.

I'll probably play as a Breton (as per usual). It's kind of nice and disappointing at the same time that we have the same Elder Scrolls races we have always had.

Something about humanoid cat people always rustles my jimmies in a good way.

So yet again I will be tooting along as Aramael the Kajeet* archer!

Gotta stick with the lore though haven't you. :/

I wouldn't mind if they found some way to squeeze in the snow elves and the dwemer.

Those pics would make awesome Magic cards.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I mean, it doesn't really bother me, but the fact that this is set way before any of the other games means they could have maybe added an extra race or two. The Dwemer and Snow Elves are good suggestions.

I haven't given a lot of thought to this game before now but really it seems infinitely more appealing than Skyrim. I still haven't played any of the Elder Scrolls games, mostly because of my lack of attention span for single player titles, to go through cooperatively sounds like good fun.

Mass Effect Online next please.

I usually play as Nord but Breton is tempting, might try one out on Skyrim first.

I'm waiting to hear about Maiq, and then I'm going to see how many people make a Khajit called Maiq, spouting nonsense to passing strangers. They must however make him a tank/rogue hybrid and make him wear robes. Then they need to take a beating and run faster then Shadowmere. Ooooo that reminds me, wonder what the Dread Lord will have in store for me this time.
