Skyrim – Imperial Army or the Stormcloak? The Breakdown and the Consequences

With the on-going conflict of the Imperial Army and the Stormcloak in Skyrim, you will have an opportunity in the game to pick sides and do a series of quests for the faction that you choose. The big question is, does it really matter which one you choose?

Not really... it'll play out roughly the same (but opposite) if you choose one over the other.

I just wish it was a good/evil type decision...

Tommykrem2408d ago

I'm not gonna look at the consequences, I want to figure this out for myself first, but this is actually a really hard decision, and a believable conflict.

I'm gonna pick the Imperial Army just because i 'know' them from Oblivion :D

The stormcloak guy seemed like a nice honorable fellow, while the imperial guy seemed like a mean blood thirsty person.



Naw jk I went with the stormcloaks because thats what seemed to me was the right thing to do

Personally I found the stormcloak guy to be very selfish, Talking about freedom and the people yet with no consideration of the aim or goals of the Imperials. Found him a bit dictator-ish to be honest, So I went Imperial. But it really highlights how well these factions were set apart

Sorry, killing me for no reason even after another officer told them I was not a rebel was all I needed to NOT side with the Imperials. But you don't have to side with either, right? Any way it goes I am not joining the imperials. But if the game makes me choose I am joining with Stormcloaks.

^^ This... 100x this.

The second they put my neck on the block, there was no way I was gonna be "oh, hey... yeah, I forgive you for coming within seconds of chopping my head off without just cause"

lol, when it gave me the choice I had no clue what the game wanted me to do and what was going on, so I just went to the building with the Imperial. I guess im with the Imperials now.

GroundsKeeperJimbo2408d ago

Did the same thing. Let my buddy start a character and he ran to the other building. Had no idea there was even an option.

arnyftw2407d ago

Lol, me neither. But I just found out you can still change it after. Just go talk to some storm cloaks and you get a quest to join the storm cloaks.

I decided to go with Stormcloak because Ralof will give you a key to the house. Also the fact that the imperial trying to execute my ass just for crossing into Skyrim. They also torturing prisoners. After I heard the whole story of Ulfric I went with Stormcloak.
