    RondundI must admit I couldn't care less about joining either faction, they're all idiots. Should be able to start your own faction and crush the other 2 while they squabble with each other!

    Mithodor NBFeel the same way about the factions. Both contain asshats that I'd prefer to pummel.

    You can side with either the Stormcloaks or the Legion. You can sort of choose by following either the Legion soldier or the Stormcloak soldier into the keep in Helgen.

    To join the Legion travel to Solitude and enter Castle Dour and speak to General Tullis.

    To join the Stormcloaks travel to Windhelm and enter the Palace of the Kings and speak to Ulfric Stormcloak.
