        a lot of kirkbride's shit is influenced by hindu esotericism. the concept of a dreaming godhead from which all reality emanates is basically brahman in hindu myth, the Tribunal take obvious inspirations from the hindu Trimurti, and even the concept of Kalpas is just lifted wholesale
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalpa_(time)
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahman
        I'm not saying this is a bad thing, and it makes Morrowind and Elder Scrolls a lot more distinct and interesting than just ripping off Tolkien for the hundredth time or trotting out the Norse/Greek/Egyptian pantheons for the hundredth time or old Japanese mythology like so many games do. But it's not exactly original, there's just less games ripping off hindu myth and 99% of people talking about autistic elder scrolls lore online aren't pajeets because they're too busy playing genshin or some other gacha.

            Tolkien ripped off Britannic mythology, the elves in Tolkien are from irish/northumbrian folklore, not nordic/germanic, same for a whole bunch of elements.
            Elves, trolls, gnomes are indo european in origin, they have a ton of variations.

          yeah i dont know what he is on. obviously morrowind is very much inspired and influenced by hindu and mesoamerican aesthetics, religion and culture, (also stuff like dune, star wars, carl jung, glorantha, aleister crowley, etc.) but still has a strong identity on its own using those cultures as frameworks. tolkiens work is very much original and went above and beyond what most people had done before and since with the extremely autistically detailed language and worldbuilding, but is still derived heavily from anglo-saxon and norse myth. doesn't make the work generic though as morrowind has a strong, refined and unique aesthetic

    why hasn't TES bothered making any culture as even remotely interesting as the dunmer? everyone else are just generic textbook viking, roman, norman, etc. dunmer are the ONLY race that isn't a generic DnD fantasy race in TES. why is that?

      The other races were in fact supposed to be more unique than they are now at one point. The only thing that sets the Dunmer apart is the fact that they got a game before Bethesda started actively making the setting more palatable for mass audiences by making It more generic.

    I cannot say exactly what I felt in the final moment of my dream. This was some time ago, so I cannot even say whether it is because the feeling was ineffable, or simply forgotten. But I have imagined, ever since, that it was the last thing the Dwemer felt.

      As a person who used to randomly become lucid during dreams and slowly wake up before I can have any fun or explore using my own will, I kinda want to say the feeling is a mix of slight panic, ton of disappointment and a lot of "welp it can't be help but it was fun while it lasted" type of mentality though you might literally got to do nothing. Kinda want to say the stages of grief but all at once skipping straight to acceptance. Like you finally gain control just to lose control, bit ironic to the point of being funny though you aren't laughing. Same type of feeling of getting a massive jar of candy or a million dollars in a dream to wake up not even taking a bite. Hard to be upset at losing something that was never there in the first place but you still kinda disappointed anyway of what could had been. Very niche feeling.

        I had figured that other people experiencing something similar would have a totally different reaction, but I think your description matches what I felt pretty closely. It's like one part of your brain feels the world ending around you, and the other part of your brain knows the world around you isn't real. I wonder if it's at all like how we relate to fiction. A sad story can make you sad, even though you know it's just a story.

      Beside speech being good, easier to bribe (which was a real option to outright skip some quests) and most guards, important people and two factions were basically nothing but imperials what exactly were the perks? Real talky race choice but what weapon and armor you went with?

        Those are the perks I guess in terms of gameplay, not that racials are very consequential. I think anon was thinking more about a roleplay thing.

      All right, Mortowind have themes of racism. Now i want a game, where picking a race will lock you out from certain highest positions, best rewards and other things, up until guaranteed unremovable hostility of some factions. Picked a tool as a race? Enjoy most Houses of dunmers to outright command at you and give you only shittiest quests. Altmer too much? Nord factions will either ignore you or will attemp to kill you on sight. Imperial? All prices are up, no headmaster positions in any non-imperial factions, not allowed to Kamonna Tong either.
