    Just a few things I'd like to "correct." This video was awesome, otherwise You talked about how the Imperials are puppets to the Thalmor, but that's actually false. It is revealed through a Thalmor Dossier that the Stormcloaks a puppets created by a brainwashed Ulfric Stormcloak in order to weaken the Empire.The Septim Dynasty members and the Dovahkiin are not the same Type of Dragonborn, per se. The Septims share Dragon blood only as an inheritance from their TRUE Dragonborn ancestor, Tiber Septim (Talos). Tiber Septim, still, did not kill any dragons because they had died off long ago. The Dovahkiin has not only POTENT Dragon blood, but also the SOUL of a dragon. This allows him the special powers that the average Septim would not have. (Easily learning Dovahzul, Absorbing dragon souls, etc.)The Voice and the learning of Dovahzul is no simple task. Learning the even simplest of Words takes constant practice and meditation that the Graybeards have been doing their whole life. Even learning one shout could take months, if not years of practice and meditation.Overall, I loved this video. Just a few things I wanted to point out.

  • Emily III

    Can we just take a minute to think about just how fucking clever Bethesta is like it is actually amazing

  • Gepdox XVI

    Calling the empire Thalmor puppets makes you sound biased. Yes, they're more or less under the Thalmor's control, but only because they lost in a war.The Stormcloaks on the other hand are the Thalmor's puppets but don't even know it. In the game, you find a dossier on Ulfric saying that the Thalmor had Ulfric in captivity at some point, released him, but made it seem like he escaped himself. They planned on him starting the war to weaken the Empire.

  • Ethan Pendarvis

    Dov-Ah-Kiin is how it's supposed to be pronounced. Dov: Dragon. Ah: Hunter. Kiin: Born.

  • John Smith

    The dragon born is a targaryen

  • Mad Dog MacGregor

    My god there are a lot of things wrong.... Fellow lore masters would agree

  • Cewkaurai Zok'Aerrus

    I love Dovahzul... :# It's the most beautiful language ever made for a fictional story in my opinion.

  • Brian Sanders

    So the Dragonborn in Skyrim is a demigod? That's always been my theory.

  • David Eckert

    Says it right in the video: The Imperials are a puppet of the Thalmor. SKYRIM BELONGS TO THE NORDS! ALL HAIL HIGH KING ULFRIC!

  • InMaTeofDeath

    Pretty sure I have well over 200 hours in skyrim and I've never completed the main quest. Guess I'll have another chance when I start a new adventure this October.

  • abir ishtiaque

    So is this video for people who didnt play the game?

  • aaa aaa

    Did anyone join the Stormcloaks? Just me? Awe :c

  • knut Kragballe

    Well you just told us the main story...

  • NecroLord

    Don't forget the fact that by absorbing the dragon souls you prevent the dragons from getting reincarnated as told by the blades.

  • LiveLoveLift92

    still a better love story than twilight

  • JoeCombustible

    Whenever I mention the elder scrolls around my friends, they think I'm talking about Skyrim. -_-

  • Navarro A.

    All hail Ulfric! The true High King of Skyrim!

  • Dr Mobius

    Imperials didn't lose to the Aldmeri Dominion, they signed a peace treaty, the Emperor wanted to stop the war to try to rebuild after so many years of blood shed and distrust between man and mer. This is why the Nords and Red Guards are so pissed with the Imperials, Red Guards still fight the Aldmeri Dominion throughout their borders and are actually showing promise in victory while the Nords have a long history of war with the elves. The folks behind this video need to refresh their understanding of the war, the Stormcloaks claim the Imperials are puppets of the Thalmor but that's not true. Of course the Thalmor are not to be trusted.

  • Marvin

    What a stormcloak propaganda...

  • snag710

    thanks for telling me everything I all ready know from spending time to actually play the game. This video sucks try again and this time tell me something I didn't know

  • DarynBlackout132

    Am I the only one who gets SERIOUS chills when watching skyrim cinematics with the chanting in the background?

  • Gamer Cub

    Or you can do a truce between the imperials and stormcloaks

  • Wujeeta

    What I like about Skyrim's Thu'um is not something only Dovahkiin can do.

  • EB Productions

    knew all of this. try harder

  • blaze heart

    its actually 6,999.5 steps

  • Ricky Hsu

    You have committed crimes against Skyrim and her people, what say you in your defence?FUS ROH DAH!

  • Karuna Pyle Music

    Am I the only one who likes almost everything about Oblivion a lot more than Skyrim

  • Dante Reece

    You can add to this theory with the Nerevarine. He's not dragonborn, but also follows the border concept by being a lesser form of immortality in which he does not age and cannot die from natural cause, but can be slain.

  • DeciNarx N/A

    tell the story of those people who named their kid dovahkiin

  • Revanite67

    To be honest I'd rather have a skyrim 2 than an elder scrolls 6

  • SMN4

    parthernax is voiced by mario

  • pillows2400

    Ulfric isn't dragonborn though. ._.

  • Jonathan Åkesson

    So your saying that the Dragonborn is OP whilst it still took me 6 in-game hours to kill the ebony warrior?

  • Guy Broman

    Talos didn't exactly take over Argonia. He just started building cities around the border because it is too dangerous to actually conquer, because of the disease and inhabitability for non-Saxhleel. The Saxhleel also didn't have a fondness for humans as they were being attacked by pirates, so they didn't treat Talos and his soldiers well because of their previous encounters with Humans.

  • MarioNazzem

    Dovahkiin means dragon slayer, not dragonborn. I know, I'm a nerd

  • Trevelyan

    Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin, naal ok zin los vahriin, wah dein vokul mahfaeraak ahst vaal, ahrk norok paal graan, fod nust hon zind zaan, dovahkiin, fah hin kogaan mu draal

  • Oph.08

    Ok guys soo stormcloaks or imperials?im stormcloaks

  • Silence Mangrum

    Between this video and the Legend of Zelda one you have officially earned me as a subscriber! This is now my second favorite You Tube show. Surpassed only by Game Theory.

  • Gianfranco Bozzo

    Well, very accurate the info. but in oblivion every character or NPC refers to the septim bloodline as the ones who inheritaded the "blood of the dragon or Akatosh" himself and in proof of the owners of the dragon blood, Akatosh give to the humanity the Amulet of Kings, and only someone who is a descendant of the Septim bloodline or posses the blood of the dragon (Akatosh) is worthly to wear it and be the emperor, so besides of telling all this, the Dragonborn (the character you protagonize in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim) has the dragon blood, that mean that he can wear the Amulet of Kings and in theory has the rightful to be the emperor of the Empire.Right?

  • Tony Arevalo

    You simplified the conflict between the Empire and the Stormcloaks way to much. It's more complicated than the banning of Talos. But I'm sure other commenters have already said this and explained why so Ill just be off.

  • DiE-lan

    Sheesh, all this about the Civil War and the Great War got me thinking... Is there a tamrielic equivalent to Switzerland? A country which doesn't really lean either to one side or the other?

  • Bleidd

    You guys definitely deserve more subs!!!!!Best of luck to this awesome channel!!!PS: (You made the empire look bad, They're not entirely puppets, they were just forced to make a treaty with the elves because they were getting butchered in the great war and you did not mention the stormcloaks were racist pieces of Shite!! :) )Talos guide you :)

  • Joe England

    You can even use the Dragonborn's nature as a thematic excuse to canonically explain basic game mechanics.  For example, I like to imagine that our ability to "return to life" after dying is an expression of the Dragonborn's unique perception of time.  To us it's just, y'know, the auto-save feature kicking in.  But to the people in the game... how did we know that trap was there?  It's magic!

  • Rax Pax

    everyone who played it, should have knew that story ...

  • Americk Seow

    More TES, How about Nerevar?


    Plenty knew this. Here's something you probably didn't know though. I'm paraphrasing from some lore buff but here goes:"Ever noticed how the White Gold Tower is a tower in a giant wheel, or how the Elder Scrolls say 'When the wheel turns upon the last dragonborn'. Take these into account. Now think, who is turning the Wheel? Alduin. The World Eater, and a time aspect of Akatosh, god of time, the King.But Akatosh has a dual personality. His second personality is Lorkhan, the Rebel. He is basically fighting himself, that's why he tore out his own heart and killed himself. Lorkhan's avatar on the other hand is Talos. his place holder, giant oversoul which consists of many dragonborn/shezzarines like Tiber Septim; and the current incarnation...current shezzarine is Skyrim's main character...you." Remember who you fight? Alduin, avatar of Akatosh, who is the dual personality of Lorkhan, father to the Talos oversoul, and whose latest incarnation is you. You are fighting yourself because some god has schizophrenia and one personality wants to kill the other."

  • Alfax Luis

    That voice...Scatsbury?

  • VideoQuestEx

    Interesting summary on the lore of Skyrim!

  • F4aXxZ 〈3

    First of all, The Empire is a sovereign State which isn't a Puppet of the Aldmeri Dominion... They signed a peace treaty after the Great War between the Empire, Morrowind etc. against the Aldmeri Dominion... The so named White-Gold-Concordat... And Talos is banned because the High Elves don't recognise gods which were human.2nd there is no such thing like hell... Only Oblivion... 3rd.. Mehrunes Dagon is a Daedra not a god... There are only 8-9 gods, Akatosh, Kynareth, Mara, Julianos, Dibella, Zenithar, Stendaar, Arkay and Talos ( or not depends if you are a high elve or not :P )

  • kg583

    xD that Jimmy Neutron reference at 1:16

  • Toryu Naminosaki

    From what I gathered from books in Oblivion and Skyrim, there is a slight difference between the Septim dynasty and the protagonist of Skyrim. The Septim line is descended from St. Alessa, a mortal woman who made a pact with Akatosh to keep Oblivion separated from Nirn, the mortal plane..which makes them metaphorical 'dragon born'.The last dragonborn, however, is meant literally, being a mortal blessed with a dragon's soul by Akatosh himself.

  • R.K.Playz

    the intro and outro of these videos are so cool

  • End My Suffering

    I wonder how the elder scrolls 6 will say the war ended and about the dragon born

  • frank x

    I dont read the books in the game, but I knew this stuff just through playing: you would have to wilfully ignore a helluva lot not to.And surely the REAL issue is how such an awesome game have controls designed by a mudcrab.

  • Ninja Cat

    The Empire aren't puppets :c they're gathering their strength and licking their wounds until the next war. Stormcloaks need to stop crying and wait, they can't beat the Thalmor alone, and the Empire can't start another war without Skyrim. The whole civil war is basically close-minded barbarians v.s the open-minded and patient Empire.

  • Jeremy Estey

    What u should have done instead of making this video is put a blank screen saying play the game and then explained what choices were actually made in the game by the Tru dovahkin instead of us the player
