  • Jack Plays Folk

    I think Alduin came to Helgen for the mead with juniper berries

  • Dynamic Bucket

    The reason Skyrim's intro is so memorable is because you have to suffer through it every time you want to start over...

  • Benjamin Blank

    Saadia was the one who was actually lying. If you hand her over to the Redguards, and if you walk around outside for a decent amount of time rather than fast traveling everywhere. Within a weeks time, a small group of Thalmor soldiers will ambush you and attack you. In their note, they say that you have severely impeded on their power. And they have been tasked to eliminate you before you cause more damage.This always happens after I have handed Saadia over to the Redguards. She was the Thalmor spy, not the Redguards. No Thalmor attack you if you kill the Redguards.

  • TrophPlayz

    my serial killer orc named Shrek is part of shor? wow.

  • Guitar Nerd

    Personally, I think Alduin attacking Helgen was for a much more mundane reason. If you remember, Alduin was not actually banished, merely pushed forward in time, and the time where he was pushed just so happened to be 4E 201. Being understandably angry, he attacks the nearest town to him, which just so happens to be Helgen. So, Alduin being pushed forward in time, to him attacking Helgen, that was only 5 minutes ago by his perspective.

  • Daniel Mason

    Saadia was lying. Why on earth would you run from Hammerfel, a nation that is at war with the Thalmor, to a nation that is essentially controlled by the Thalmor. Also, considering the zeal of Thalmor Justiciar in skyrim, it is unlikely for the Thalmor to hire mercenaries to kill someone, especially someone important. Not to mention the mercenaries they supposedly hired were redguards who weren't even trusted to enter whiterun. Even if the Thalmor did this, they would be clever enough to hire some Nords.(considering I have been attacked by steel plated thugs in whiterun multiple times, yet the guards keep letting them at me)

  • tyrant778 -

    Guess you could say maven’s feud was “water under the bridge”!

  • Damiano

    I like how both the redgaurds and Sadia say the other is with the thalmorNobody likes the thalmor

  • Dialask Isel

    We all know that number 1 is wrong. Clearly, being sent forward in time, Alduin believed he'd be able to go and see the new and wonderous creation of the 7 11. So, wandering, he searched high and low for it... until he realized he had not yet been sent far enough in the future. Lost and grumpy, he decided to eat Helgen to satiate his rage and thrist for cheap oversized drinks.

  • 47most SOON

    I expected you to discuss why Alduin was easier to defeat than all theLegendary dragons!

  • Logan Newman

    Well if Saadia spoke out against the dominion she would be praised because hammerfell wasn't even under the control of the elves to begin with so it would be impossible to really speak out against them.

  • zGlitchist

    4:15 ok I don't know if it is a mod for retexture, but that "Redguard" looks more like a Redguard imposter

  • Shaayan periss

    I feel kematu and the hammerfell warriors are right because the Thalmor lost the war with hammerfell and thus it is independant, they have no jurisdiction there, she has no reason to run away for speaking out against the thalmor

  • ltshep

    Dragon Priests: Oh, great Alduin. Who is this new tusked priest mask made for? We know not of this other high priest of yours. Alduin: Oh, that’s just for whoever manages to kill all of you and collect your masks, bringing them together to Labyrinthian.Dragon Priests: ... No, but really. Who’s it for?

  • Nablaal Servant of Nurgle

    Alduin was feeding off the souls the Civil War sent to Sovngarde, I believe he attacked in order to allow Ulfric to escape, thus perpetuating the war and allowing his feast to continue.

  • Alejandro Torres

    I don't know if anyone will see this comment, or care really, but I just restarted the game on Skyrim, and I killed the first dragon, and I believe he said "Dovahkiin, Nooooooo" I have subtitles on and I didn't expect a dragon to say anything if he really did, and it caught me by surprise, if it was real, I'm thinking it does have to do with the dragonborn supposed to be helping the dragons... That or the dragon was sad that the dragonborn killed him and his soul belonged to me, either way, it was still pretty cool

  • Scarlet Foxxie

    I think we all know alduin attacked helgen knowing that the dragonborn was there because if you stay outside long enough while he is attack he's yelling "dovahkiin"

  • Sir white a lot the pagan preacher

    You forgot to mention that within maven blackbriars basement, there is a black sacrament.

  • samuel rivera

    OR...or did they return saadias remain to whiterun after she was judged in hammerfell?! she wouldnt be buried in hammerfell if she sold them out!

  • MOBI

    “BY THE GODS, A DRAGON!”“SENTRIES, WHAT DO YOU SEE?” bruh, what do you think they see

  • TheLordOfMadnes

    What if Alduin turned up because he sensed a Dragon and went to investigate, but what he thought was a dragon, was actually the Dragonborn

  • Casey Bledsoe

    I always like to think that the character you play in each game is the reincarnation of the one you played in the previous game.

  • Jer Berus

    You bring up a good point. There are both 8 dragon priests and 8 divines. There might be something to this. I could also speculate that Talos is the 9th divine, and perhaps you, the last/most recent dragon-born, were supposed to be the 9th dragon priest? Ah, we had the same idea...I finished watching the rest of your theory.

  • Vladarius

    then if we are the avatar of shor then it can explain that when we die we go back in time

  • Young Frankenstein

    Under Dragon's Bridge? You missed by half a map, homie.

  • Yulia S

    A theory that Lokir is Lorkhan helping the player survive a few more seconds.

  • precure blossom

    k but redguards dont look like that lol

  • SCdreamdrawer

    The theory about Shor's avatar makes it even more ironic for elven Dragonborns..or non-Nord Dragonborns for that matter!

  • Paige C

    My personal theory is that Alduin attacked Helgen to save you, because he was so cocky and overconfident he was sure that he would win your battle and wanted that glory. Letting you die at the hand of an executioner wouldn't make for a great tale after all. But eventually his hubris is his downfall. I like this theory because it shows Alduin as the overconfident character he is, being so sure his plan would succeed he is ultimately his own downfall, not only saving the life of the person who would eventually defeat him, but in fact setting into motion the chain of events that would result in his defeat.

  • Norcal Bowhunter

    The whole Akatosh prayer theory reminds me of the gods from D&D. As in, when someone prayed to them, depending on what "level" of god they were, their attention would be brought to that area, for some only a few miles, for others 10+ miles. They would know everything that was going on because of it. Perhaps the gods of Skyrim act the same, and thus by praying to Akatosh his attention was drawn and he knew of what was going on. So he saw you, the dragonborn, was going to be executed and sent something to help you out of the situation because he knew the part you played on a larger role.Also the whole Saadia theory can be debunked with the simple fact, that it is not uncommon for people to bury empty coffins when they think someone has died. In our world, often people go missing and no body is found. So after a certain amount of time people will declare them dead and bury an empty coffin to symbolize that person being put to rest. You could say that Saadia went missing and someone in White Run was close to her, after a while figured her for dead, and had the urn placed with her belongings left behind, as a memorial to her.

  • Tiago Molon

    5:07 as a counterargument, if you kill saadia before kematu paralyzes her when siding with the Alikr, you are gonna fail and piss Kematu off. Still, one of the greatest moral debates in the game

  • huverdoose

    Question: what is it about Christophe that makes his bones lighter than water?

  • Heavens Demons

    Alduin literally calls out Dovakin as he’s burning Helgin. He new he was there and tried to kill him.

  • Fukenzan Fukashada

    "Burial yearn"Why the hell do you mispronounce everything lmao

  • AlphaToker

    I love that people are still playing and making videos about Skyrim. It’s been almost 7 years?

  • Little Rosie Boy

    I encountered a dragon priest at that same location,but I just took the word and ran away 😂

  • pixelshock

    Maybe it was Miraak who was supposed to wear Konahrik?

  • Zam138

    "Obviously these dragons didn't think things through"Mask switches to Krosis, for SorrowFitting XD

  • German Player

    Nr. 1 is already solved by the main quest

  • Melon Wolf

    But if you kill saadia wile paralyzed kamatu will be angry How could you possibly not know this?!!!

  • Subtotal Aljar

    Just an idea but Alduin could have been there to save Ulfric just so the civil war could continue and proceed to divide the nation so as to not be able to stop him or to find the Dragonborn.

  • PidgePotato

    "Which, of course you don't visit"How dare you, nate. 😂😂😂

  • Dar'vani

    When I was escaping Helgen I had subtitles on, and apparently Alduin said something but it disappeared before I could finish reading it.I still don't remember what he said.

  • VaciliNikoMavich

    What i find strange, is if you are a Dragonborne -so a Dragon who is reincarnated or trapped in a mortal body..Alduin is basically YOUR BROTHER.In theory, Skyrim is basically a strange Metal Gear Solid.

  • Falkreath Guard

    1:59I used to be an inmate like you.But then I took an arrow to the ankle.

  • Yatagaru Crow

    so my blizzard lizard wizard is a reincarnation of shor? nice!

  • Mac 'N Cheese

    I guess Erik The Slayer is a dragon priest warlord. He’s the one with the mask....

  • Ethan Campbell

    I love the chill mammothy outro but I was disappointed by the lack of sudden giant-based flight

  • Ye Boi

    I always was thinking...... who was the real contract of Dark Brotherhood when she makes u to kill one??????

  • Henry McElroy

    When i became thane of Whiterun, Nazeem kept pissing me off so i hit him with a fury spell. The guards took care of him and i just paid off my 40 spetim bounty.

  • indigo_ferret

    Saadia is wrong because the treaty of Stros Mkai claimed hammerfell Thalmor free

  • Christopher Dunn

    I read all the comments and conclude with this. NO ONE KNOWS.

  • Nemen

    5:49 Lemme just slowly walk towards a dragon priests with a torch out 😂😂

  • Craig Thompson

    Urn is pronounced "earn" not "uren"

  • øyvind vego

    legend says that all guards once were adventurers, until they all took an arrow to the knee

  • Calamity556

    I just give Saadia to Kematu because it's the fastest way to complete the quest.

  • Ballin Balgruuf

    I read a book that all of the 8 dragon priests regularly held council at the labyrinthian. So I don't think that collecting the masks was a challenge set by the dragons. I think the dragon priests simply displayed their masks on the altar during the council presided by the unknown konahriik.

  • best hokage

    Alduin heard akatosh and came over shouting i got you fam

  • Cyrus Ambrose

    The first theory is...wrong. Akatosh attacked Helgen because it was right there from where he escaped into our time. It was more or less a coin flip on if he noticed Riverwood or Helgen first, as they were both right against the mountain. I do think Lokir has significance though. Think about the Dragon Prophecy. All parts of it lead up to the civil war in some way by their effects on the Empire and Tamriel, with the last bit being of the civil war itself. Now think about what Felldir the Old shouted through the Elder Scroll at Alduin. His exact words were "I cast you out, from all our endings unto the last: You. Are. Banished." I think that means that when the descendants of his defiant group, when their entire bloodline, would be entirely purged, that is when Alduin would be freed. The civil war was the ultimate purge of those descendants, killing off the people of Skyrim in droves. Lokir was the last of them.

  • Jargon Madjin

    So basically, the Dragonborn was saved from execution because Alduin was triggered that someone prayed to Akatosh

  • Elizabeth Richens

    1.57 Oooof! Arrow through the heel, thats gotta hurt..

  • Jacob Freeman

    My theory on why Alduin showed up is he was going around raising dragons by sensing them. A sense of kindred or something like that. So he showed up thinking he would find another burial mound and instead found you. That may have been the purpose of the first shout he used. He was testing whether you really were dragonborn by waking you up to that sleeping power. And upon finding this is true decided to try and kill you because he can't count on you not getting in the way.As to Saadia...I always felt her story was a lie. It is inconsistent and possesses logical flaws. Where as Kematu's story doesn't change. It isn't completely suspicious either as they have no idea who in Skyrim may be a Thalmor collaborator. So spreading around word they are a group who opposes the Thalmor when they can't guarantee they won't be ratted out would be stupid. So to me "Saadia" is the by far more suspicious of the two.

  • ShadewDonger

    Ahhh so I'm the Avatar: The Last Dragon Slayer good to know

  • Hannah May

    Alduin attacks because your character is there. If you wait outside the helgen keep you can hear alduin say Dovahkiin

  • Twilight Spire

    If you kill Saadia in front of him he says “oh well, we didn’t even have to kill her.”

  • Ulysses

    My theory about Helgan is that Alduin sensed that the dragonborn was present and he was about to be executed. I believe that in Alduins quest to rule over Skyrim he wanted a challenge and saved the dragonborn from execution. When he lands on the guard tower he looks right at you. Don’t you think if he wanted to kill you he would’ve shouted at you? When you go and watch him resurrect a dragon he didn’t kill you. Alduin didn’t want to kill the dragonborn until his strength was full. This is what makes the most sense to me.

  • Hudson Beal

    I always assumed alduin sensed the dragon soul in the Dragonborn and thought it was another dragon

  • Patryk Rogala

    4:51 Saadia's burial urine, you say? Never change, Nate.

  • Sam Greening

    When you said dragon priests I got so much nostalgia to my Xbox 360.

  • elayna swift

    Your outro music is awesome
