I change my mind about being a Stormcloak.
I went to the Blue Palace in Solitude to ask about Balgruuf's strange children, the quest eventually unlocked Mephala's "The Whispering Door" quest and gave me one sweet looking blade, but I digress.
I went down to the cellar where all the Jarl's Ulfric kicked off of power were presiding.
They all were kind people, and they frickin' LOATHED me. They were right to, I guess :v
I kinda thought back to the kinds of Jarls they were and they weren't half bad.
Now, looking at Vignar who PROBABLY had the Battle-Borns robbed by the Stormcloaks, I think:
"What have I done?"
I asked a lot of NPC's the question: "Has the Stormcloaks taking power affected you?" and most of them say it isn't much different. Paraphrasing what Eorlund Gray-Mane said to me:
"It isn't much different. They're both people telling us how to live our lives."
So...for the Empire!
