Wes Johnson looks like somebody who should be on The Office or something, not making tens of thousands of impressionable young people think murdering their way across fantasy medieval Rome or blowing up a small town is cool.
I mean look at this:
I’m so glad it’s only vaguely Roman in the Imperial City and not full on DA style copy/pasted
Yeah, it’s a pretty subtle parallel, which is cool.
Another cool thing: how much imperialism is part of Cyrodiilic culture, and how much of the NPC dialogue revolves around how it FUCKING SUCKS for everyone who’s not an Imperial land owner. You go hang around Bruma and listen to NPCs talk about how all the wealthy people in town are Heartlanders and how lazy Nords are, and it’s like geez. Why do I want to save this country again?
And then you get upset when you think about how the whole thing collapsed like a poorly-cooked flan under the Mede dynasty, because Bethesda has some very very good writers on their payroll.
Honestly, living anywhere that isn’t your native land in TES sucks. The Empire is just a collection of dick nations bound together in a massive get along shirt.
There are a couple dunmer immigrants in Cheydinhal and the Imperial City who moved to Cyrodiil so they could get away from the Tribunal, and they seem pretty happy (not to mention Falanu Hlaalu in Skingrad, but uh…she’s a special case). A few Khajiit are doing pretty well for themselves too, and of course everything is roses if you’re a Breton or Altmer.
But yeah, BY AND LARGE that is pretty accurate, and I am loling so hard over the image of Tiber Septim forcing everyone into a get along shirt. XD
I hope if there’s a game set in Hammerfell it’s depicted like Dorne in Westeros. Basically, a much better place to live than literally anywhere else, even if it’s hot.
Hammerfell’s the Redguard homeland, right? That’d be really cool! Anvil is one of the nicest towns in the game, aside from that chapel massacre thing and the guy who wants to sell you a haunted house. And the serial killer living under the lighthouse. And, uh, all the thugs and ghosts wandering around the docks.
…It’s really lovely aside from all that, though! Very nice houses.
What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”
Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.
90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums
Are we not going to mention Jesus?
Oh my god.
