How Skyrim Breaks Its Own Illusion "While strolling along the vast expanse of wilderness between Skyrim's major settlements, I chanced upon two mages dueling each other to the death. One was a fire mage, the other a frost mage. After killing them both (they were hostile, I promise), I took a moment to marvel at the consistency of it all. Here, in the middle of nowhere, I encountered something that I might have easily missed: a continuation, perhaps, of an eternal feud between fire and ice.

I have to say though, some NPc's do recognise player race, I play as an Altmer, and have encountered race specific dialogue. I assume, playing as a Nord would also (should also) deliver race specific dialogue.
