First ten seconds ruins your plans entirely

says one man, while all the others in town give off the sense that this is not the case

I'm just wondering how you picked at that and not the fact that i called markarth morthal several times

Excessive alcohol abuse really screws with what you deem important. But there's also the fact that you can tell the guards it's too much effort to arrest you and that they'll agree.

For a single petty crime left theft of an apple. And thats ALL the guards, not just the ones in whiterun

gameplay/story segregation

Don't you imperial dog ME, you milk-drinking simpleton. I carried Jar Ulfric to victory in Solitude myself!

Prolly wont on this kajhiit though. guess that makes me an imperial cat?

Not that you can help the empire. You aren't welcome inside any city you Skooma smuggling thieving furball puking scumbag!

It is weird how that works, isnt it? I choose to believe that no one really cares if the kajhiit come into town, but none of them have ever tried it, so both sides assume theres some sort of law against it

It's a huge oversight to be honest. The devs should've put more weight into what you chose to play as. If yer an argonian you'd be relativley accepted as they've earned their place in Windhelm. But only barely. Dark Elves should be borderline assaulted by the retard mobs in Windhelm and Khajiits should have to bribe or sneak into each city. Ah well, can't have everything.

You have that backwards. Dunmer have rights in windhelm, argonians are the ones that aren't allowed in. They only get to do menial dock tasks. And honestly, what you suggest would be terrible. Khajiit and argonians wouldn't be able to navigate the city because the guards would throw them out.

Here's my fanwank justification: PCs are obviously not staying long, and thus arent going to bring down the property value. They're also going to stand out enough that the city guards will keep an eye on them more than normal citizens. Then once you have made yourself well-liked amongst the city, people don't care you aren't the right race. you're also coming in alone (or plus one) so you can't blend in with others.

You got it backwards mate. The Dunmer are hated. Read "Scourge of the Grey Quarter". Argonians are earning their place in Windhelm by working. The Dunmer are hated because they are lazy, treacherous bigots. Yeah some low-class bottomfeeder bum nords are harassing them and with that they justify hating all nords. They are parasites. The argonians are atleast WORKING even though their conditions could be better. If the nords were such a "hateful" bunch why do they allow a high elf to set up shop? Even said high-elf says that the dunmer are idiots. Wich they are. These are bottomfeeder low-class idiot dunmer refugees that bitch and moan that they arent given a free meal. They were poor before they became refugee's now they feel like they are entitled to free stuff because they are poor and living on other peoples welfare.

Riften or Solitude. Riften just feels like home and Solitude is a beautiful city.

That frozen cliff at the northern edge of the map that has a Doom Stone on it. I'd build me a small house next to said stone and live on the bears that inhabit the area.
And I'd sleep on the fucking ice.

I'd definitely choose Whiterun. I like how it's open and colourful, with a great view of the mountains and grasslands. It's got a lot of soul and history for Skyrim. If dragons do attack, they'll likely go for the large giant and mammoth populace rather than the tiny citizens. Not only that, but it's a trading site for Skyrim - plenty of business, and lots of people to meet.

I also love Kynareth out of all the Divines, so it makes sense to be a a city with a temple to her.

Here's my list of where I would choose to live:
1) Nightingale Hall: It's secure and practically on the door steps of Riften. There's no way I would live with the common rabble in the sewers. I mean I'm a freaking Nightingale. Also there's boulder that hides entrance so it's pretty hard to find. Plenty of Game in the area to hunt plus farms in the area to ste... harvest crops from. Plus when you step outside you're not but a stones throw from Lake Honrich.

2) Eldergleam Sanctuary: So it's pretty far off the beaten path from any city BUT you get to live near those hot springs. I mean who wouldn't want to go skinny dipping in one of those lakes. The giants will keep everything away, even dragons, as long as I don't bug them. Of course the down side is that I have to live near my former fiance... who's alive... yeah... alive.

3) Nilheim: Once you clear out the area, it's not bad. There's a lake and it's not too far from Ivarstead. Plenty of game to hunt. Plus if your horse breaks down, you can alway con a Dragonborn into escorting you back to the tower.

K84:
Whiterun, i like it there.
Just yeah....walking around, simple small town, like where i grew up.
Good place.

Misfits icon, you are my friend!

PURE MINDLESS VANDALISM!

Riften, as long as I had the Thieves Guild quest completed and wouldn't have to worry about them messing with me. It's right on the water, seems to have a lot of eligible women living there, lots of merchants, and a few nice bars/restaurants. Also, there's cheap living quarters, if I didn't feel like sleeping down in the cistern. People in that town seem kind of cynical and sarcastic and I kind of dig people like that to an extent. Better than racists and the incredibly religious types. And the only main religious establishment in town is a church of LOVE. I'd hit that place up.

Whiterun or Winterhold,
whiterun because it's a realy fine city with a cool jarl and 2 blacksmits.
Winterhold because it's close to the college and can I keep an close eye on my apprentices. XD

The worst city to my opinion is Markath because of the forsworn and the city is filled with canibals.

Dunmer have houses in the city.
Argonians have bunkspace in an empty warehouse.
A couple Nords pick on the dark elves
They don't pick on argonians because the argonians are kept outside.
The Dunmer all have jobs and one owns his own business
The argonians are barely paid at all
The Dunmer don't hate all nords. You have no in-game evidence for this

Why do i get the feeling you have VERY strong opinions about hurricane katrina?

EDIT: not to mention ALL games game have the beast races at the bottom of the ladder. Argonians especially
FURTHER EDIT: And the Altmer are the most racist group in the series! thats why THEY have nazi's in power right now!

It's like you didn't pay attention to the games at all

I would live on snow-throat mainly because it is a mountain that exists in multiple universes, has a peak that is only half-there, is one of the mythic towers that hold up the world, and probably has some stupidly powermagics somewhere in it that could help me achieve CHIM.

I'm torn between Whiterun and Markarth, though I'd choose Markarth, it's carved into the mountain and I love it!

does the abonded shack count as your house?

How the fuck does a hurricane in a foreign country have any relevance to Skyrim? Smacktard. 1 The vast majority of the dunmer don't have jobs, you have no evidence to support that and read "The Scourge of the Grey Quarter". The Argonians just got there, it is a civil war so strangers are kept at a distance for obvious reasons. That and most of them don't have any complaints. Some don't care for the cold reception either. Believe one of them mention that if you talk to them. And the dunmer LIVE IN A SLUM. Their houses don't count for much. Been inside of them? Trashy. And the urine and shit from the higher quarters run down into the Gray Quarter so yeah, it's literally the sewer of Windhelm. The docks are preferable.

It's like you don't pay any attention to the games at all.

innocentEX:
No where is safe, you are bound to be killed multiple times, only to be reloaded as to relive the torture for an eternity.

Just which Daedric Prince did you piss off?

- - -

I'd choose Solitude. It seems to be the most secure, and it doesn't have a lunatic for a ruler.

the evidence to support that they all work is that they all have assigned jobs in game
SOTGQ isn't reliable, it's written by an in-game racist with an agenda. Bethesda deliberately writes in-game books inaccurately so that they are more realistic. There are also books that say all nords are lazy, stupid drunks. Is that true? No.

Revyn Sadri: shopkeeper/business owner
Belyn Hlaalu: works his own farm (with nord employee)
Ambarys Rendar: innkeeper/business owner
Suvaris Atheron: Clan Shatter-Shield Office clerk
Faryl Atheron: farmer
Aval Atheron: Runs his own stall in the market
Malthyr Elenil: works for Ambarys Rendar at the New Gnisis Cornerclub
I THINK that's all of them... even if its not, thats still the majority.

The dunmer have jobs.
The argonians are wage slaves. In fact, if you check out Suvaris' journal in the shatter-shield office, you can see that starvation is a normal punitive measure, and they are kept on the leash via skooma addiction

The dark elves are hated, perhaps, but the argonians don't even register as people to the nords (or dunmer, but then the dunmer were always racist assholes)

more importantly, 1.5 has dropped! fuck yeah!

kommando367:
Falkreath. Nice weather and no one messes with it.

And it isn't a major city, so you wouldn't get civilled up the war like all the other places (also, they have an imprisoned Werewolf, so if lycanthropy is your poison you could probably find a way to get some of his blood and wolf-out on some punks).

I would choose Riften if it wasn't Thieve's Guild HQ. Falkreath is for me.

Windhelm. The Argonian revolution has to start somewhere.

I would live in Markarth. but I decided to stick my nose in where it didn't belong. and I would not be taken to jail easily.

Probably the College if Winterhold wasn't such a shithole, so if not that then probably Riverwood, it's got a lot of jobs, good housing, and if we get invaded we are 5 minutes from Whiterun (one of the most defensible cities in Skyrim.).

I'd become a Mercenary and live wherever my job would take.
If that doesn't count I'd just live in a very small village so I wouldn't have to live in the constant smell of shit.

Riverwood. It's a nice place, to be honest. Right next to Whiterun too!

Or Falkreath, sure you have it in a forest heavy area, but okay! Bears at least don't open locks. >.> Yet. <.<

I'd live in the Frostflow Lighthouse. I don't know why, but I liked that place.
