    I want to be a Nord when it comes out, not sure if I would be bothered with any of the other classes.

    I played a Nord in Skyrim too

    Most likely I'll play what I'm familiar with. From the past 3 of their games, I've at least made 3 characters.

    DAGGERFALL COVENANT
    Orc - Love the two handed weapon berserk orc. Get some nice heavy armor and just charge right in, swinging.

    EBONHEART PACT
    Dark Elf - Always love making a caster. Dark Elf's bonus to destruction magic makes them the best candidate.

    ALDMERI DOMINION
    Bosmer - Of them all, I enjoy the stealth archer Bosmer the most. Being able to pick enemies off from a distance, and have them scratching their heads about where the arrow came from is just fun.

    Redguard is my favorite, but I may try a Dark Elf as well.

    My race choices are not based on what build I can get because any race can be any class, and any class can use any armor and wield any weapon.

    DAGGERFALL COVENANT

    Redguard - I dug a little into the lore of the Ra'Gada, and like what I read.

    EBONHEART PACT
    Nord - Because I'm a freakin' Viking from a long line of freakin' Vikings.

    ALDMERI DOMINION
    High Elf (Altmer) - If I had the choice of only 3 races, I'd gladly dump the Altmer for an Orsimer as I just really like the [strike] brutish beasts [/strike]... err... orcs. Of the three races in the Dominion, Altmer is my top choice because:

    • Wood Elf (Bosmer) - Lore has the Green Pact and that didn't draw my interest
    • Argonian - Although I love their overall appearance, I just can't wrap my head around an unprotected tail sticking out the backside of their armor.

    Totally agree. I'm still hopeful for an archery based class.

    Awesome, more interest in the Bosmer. They are the true rulers... I almost feel they are behind a lot of workings of the Dominion, but always in the shadow.

    DAGGERFALL COVENANT
    ORC - Big Weapon, Big Armor, Blacksmith. Cant go wrong. Fighters guild

    EBONHEART PACT
    Dark Elf - Pure destruction from afar. Mages Guild

    or maybe Argonian purely for the look.

    ALDMERI DOMINION
    Khajiit - Dual wielding daggers and maybe a bow for opening stirkes. My best and most fun Skyrim characters are stealthy melee fighters. Light Armor, dual daggers/swords, and stealth. DB and Theives guild.

    or High Elf if I go Argonian first
