Best Skyrim Races
Skyrim plays about 200 years after the Oblivion Crisis. The Great King of Himmelsrand, Torygg, was murdered and the province is dominated by a civil war. Some want to break away from the crumbling imperial empire, and the others want to remain a part of it. This is extremely problematic because, according to a prophecy of the scrolls of the ancients, this split is the last event that must be done to enable the dragon, led by Alduin, to return to heaven's edge.
The player starts, according to The Elder Scrolls tradition, as a prisoner, and is on his way to his execution, since he was probably considered a stormman's rebel.
