  1. Or even worse, he changes races to match the dragonborn... in ancient nordic armor.
  2. Ah didn't realize those two things were all in the same post. In any case, like I said they're not gonna knowingly contradict something Bethesda's said. They operate in the grey area where it's safe.
  3. I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt on this one for the same reason. Too many coincidental mirrorings of Wulfharth's, Talos', and Shor's legend. Course it could be a small part of it, it's personally one I'm grateful for. Besides. What if Shor was literally just some generic Nord with ancient Nordic armor
  4. Well, going along with the grain is unfair. MK didn't make C0da after all to tickle Bethesda's pickle, and the moderators on the old sites hated that ******* thing But MK and Lady N typically won't downright knowingly contradict something they've said
  5. That was just LadyN, I have no idea how much of their ideas are cosigned by eachother. They don't always go along with the grain, but they more times than not will. That Talos thing was probably just a slipup and she probably didn't recall that book. It's the only bit of lore I know of that specifically states Nords for sure know and credit Akatosh for helping Martin Septim.
  6. Though at least Olaf One-Eye and his mention of his draugr opened up room for good speculation on souls and the dreamsleeve.
  7. 11/11/11 Great marketing, wont lie. But **** them anyway.
  8. Lady N and MK only do that so they don't step on Bethesda's toes if you ask me. Talos, being also associated with Akatosh because he's dragonborn, the most powerful as well. I'd prefer to think that common Nords don't as well, and obviously in our rp I'm going to reflect that. But Bethesda only bothered to show the side that associates and reveres Akatosh, and strangely we barely see mention of the main ******* villain in the goddamn game besides from the greybeards, Esbern, and Ulfric. Maybe Balgruuf too actually, I think he acknowledges the old stories when you go to him about catching a dragon. And of course the yokel in that book.
  9. Not to mention they now associate the mythical Dragonborn, some of their greatest heroes with Akatosh.
  10. Fair enough. Still besides the point though.
  11. And yea they swear by Shor and sovngarde but there’s no statues or amulets for Shor anywhere since Talos replaces him and he’s their dead god I assume. It’s not the same. The point wasn’t that they were all super into Akatosh anyway, but that they even are at all. Amulets to Akatosh n shit, good dragon my ass. Id have preferred that he wasn’t prevalent there at all.
  12. Mara and Dibella yes but in both cases you can’t really be sure Nords actually did that anyway when they’re not actually run by Nords.
  13. Oh and that all begs to question why the **** Paarthunax is talking that Akatosh shit. Course he does say also Bormahu, so it could just be hm substituting Akatosh as the translation for the time dragon, and that he would pick up from modern Nords, but that’d have to be after Jurgen since albeit a milkdrinker, he wasn’t enough of one to say Akatosh instead of Alduin.
  14. As for the rest, while true they definitely don’t go sucking off Akatosh’s dragon bone, I’m basically scaling their worship in comparison to Imperials since in all honesty Nords typically don’t do this for any of their gods. Talos being an exception which I see as again a state of emergency because of meddling elves. Try and imagine what would happen if Trump declared Tupac just a no good thug with violent music. We already love Tupac, but after that EVERYONE including my pastor would claim that motherfucker was black Jesus reincarnated and died for our sins all over again.
  15. The guy wasn’t scholarly no lol but he knew what he was talking about which is the point of the book I think. Nords tell stories in odd Nordy ways but they often know more than they let on.
  16. The Greybeards are the real reason it felt like the Nords revered Akatosh more than they should. If even they, stuck up on that mountain believe Akatosh to be chief of the gods and responsible for your dragon soul, etc. Then those stories had to have been instilled in Nordic culture by now. Since they obviously weren't born atop that mountain and all.
  17. There's also the Greybeards talking about Akatosh though, and there's the book about Alduin not being Akatosh, which claims "everyone from nord to imperial knows that", that being that Akatosh is good. That they even recognize Akatosh, a dragon god as being "good" is annoying to me. That book also directly contradicts Lady N's post by saying they know Akatosh helped Martin Septim, just an added unrelated note.
  18. growing up black
  19. Honestly I think half the reason they revere Talos so much by the time we see Skyrim, aside from the mythological symbolic importance he has for them in Shor’s stead, is that the elves tried taking him away from them at all. Specifically Talos not just Ysmir. So that could’ve created a cultural switch right there.
  20. Course that same posts claims they think it was Talos aiding Martin not Akatosh. So take it for what you will. I wish that were the case, it’d make sense with his level of reverence in modern Skyrim through the roof as well instead of Ysmir specifically, the title of Wulfharth and Talos. But that wouldn’t give a good lore explanation for Akatosh’s level of reverence in modern Skyrim either aside from lazy Bethesda.
  21. Honestly I don’t see much issue with it aside from sacrifices being demanded it also fits pretty well in Cyrodiil, modern Nords didn’t start revering Akatosh until after the Oblivion Crisis. Lady N had a funny post claiming that when silly dragon worshiping southerners went around yelping about Akatosh, Nords would utter a silent prayer saying for the dragon (Alduin) to stay asleep.
  22. Yea dude sounds the exact opposite of nerdy lol. His voice was as deep as Mephala’s ******.
  23. Nafaalilargus actually sounds pretty badass when you say it aloud edit: albeit nerdy
  24. We should do it anyway. Lore reason from me, a lore master: **** Delphine.
  25. For a dragon
