SpartanNinja I'm a big Souls fan

Unfortuanetly Dwarf Fortress is an exclusive I think, so I can't play it. But I've heard good things.

I know we all immediately assumed that the 'Original Dragonborn' would be an antagonist. But what if he became an ally?

How do we know its a he?

I'll make that Dragonborn my enemy at all costs. I'm the only one in my Skyrim. I'll devour that dragonborn's soul.

jbh yeah they are PS3 only. Dwarf Fortress is a PC exclusive... and free to play. The learning curve isn't so much a a curve but an acute cliff facing your direction though. I can only play it with certain apps and trainers. No cheating but they do micromanaging for me.

When I listened to the trailer, I'm sure I heard 'he'
I'm just suggesting theoretical possibilities for what could happen. But I agree with you

At least now the GOTY edition will be worth buying. Frankly the inclusion of goblins is enough for me. Really missed them wee buggers.
They're Rieklings man. Saying that they're almost basically the same thing except most people thought they were the Snow Elves from before. Hell, some could say that they are considering how long the snow elves have gone... look at what happened to the Falmer and how they changed over the years. Saying that I doubt it, but ya' never know.

I personally believe they're descendants of an abandoned portion of the Akaviri army that attacked Tamriel shortly prior to the events of TES Online. Kamal led that invasion and have a variety of snow demons. Some of them could have experienced Island Dwarfism over a period of a thousand years.

It's a normal sized boar. The Rieklings are just really little, even by Goblin standards, but they use very sharp weapons and are really tough to kill. In Bloodmoon they could reflect spells back at the caster, too.

The Skaal Shaman in the trailer specifically refers to Miraak as a "He" several times.

Of course you will it's not like it'd be hard fight in the Elder Scrolls Universe After all Alduin was the bringer of the Apocalypse for all intents and purposes, killed him with ease..

At the same time, if this person is the Greedy Man of Solstheim legend, that person is an aspect of Shor - similar to Pelinal Whitestrake. Someone of immense power who consumed many Dragons, and acts as a devil figure in Skaal and Thiirsk Nord mythology. Someone like that is easily on the level of Alduin, especially since according to MK's behind the scenes comments on the development of the Tamrielic universe, the Greedy Man always schemed to stop Alduin in previous kalpas, and managed to hide away pieces of the old Universe to stick back onto the new, thus making Alduin weaker every time the Universe reset. He's a very deceptive and guileful individual and his Thu'um is powerful. Alduin the World Eater is one thing - Thartaag the World Devourer is a similar but different creature. Blood of a dragon, cunning and pettiness of a man.

Rieklings.

Different species, or another subspecies. It's never been determined whether they're Goblins or just something that superficially resembles them, like the Falmer/Betrayed in Skyrim do.

However, in Bloodmoon they fought very similarly to the Goblins in Tribunal, and later Oblivion. A Riekling raid leader is comparable in deadliness to the Goblin Warlords from Oblivion, if you've played that game.


ALSO, another note on Lore:

The guy we're fighting is the first Dovahkiin, mistranslated to "Dragonborn". People are quick to point out that Saint Alessia is stated to be the first in the lore.

She was. This is a different type of being. The Dragonborn who light the Dragonfires are Dovah-Khiin - Dragon Born. The ones who absorb souls and Shout are Dov Ah Khiin - Dragonkind Hunter Born.

Where's my evidence, ye of little faith will ask? It's a title.In the Dragon Tongue. It's ALWAYS gonna be three words. The other kind was named by Akatosh in Reman's dreams, so it doesn't have to follow that convention because, well, he's a frigging God that's why.

Another question about the Dragonbeast. How do we think he'll fare in combat class wise? Will he be a Warrior, Mage, Thief, Nightblade, Battlemage etc or a fusion of them all. Or could the Dragonbeast directly mirror the class you have chosen depending on perks, so if you have a majority of magic perks he'll be a mage.

I belive the Dragonborn seen in the video was the one who wore the Dragon Preist mask, Konahrik. It makes sense to call him that because it means "Warlord" in dragon tounge. I've been talking about that theory before the DLC was thought up of, heck I even posted a comment talking about that for a new DLC on a video of an Argonian mage figting Alduin. I swear on my family I was talking about that before the DLC was announced.
