  • slide 1 of 3

    The Imperial

    The imperial race is native of the province of Cyrodiil, in the central-south of the Tamriel continent. The province is highly civilized and the main island, situated right in the centre, is the governing centre for the Empire, with Imperial city being the island’s main city. As a result of being such a cultured region, the Imperial race is comfortable with civilized settings, in the main presenting themselves as well-spoken and highly influential individuals.

    Although not being as strong as some other races, they are skilled light-infantry warriors, and provide services to the Empire mainly related to their persuasion and diplomacy skills. They also make good merchants, often seeking fame and glory in these aspects. All these traits are combined into making the Imperial race one of the strongest politically, having subdued all other races and remaining as the main political force of Tamriel.

    Main skills are, as a result of their imposing personality attribute, Speechcraft, Mercantile and Long Blade.

    Playing the Imperial

    Since they have such a high personality, it is an ideal choice to shape your character as a spy or diplomat. You can also build a merchant prince, with great persuasion skills and innate ability to haggle.

    Baring all the above in mind, this character doesn’t start as frail at all, which means you can also concentrate on the fighting aspects of the character should you choose to. The strength and weapon abilities could provide the ideal grounds for playing a Diplomatic Knight for instance.
