Redguard (DLC)

8 Million Stories

The rumor is Redguard is the next DLC for the daedra ridden world of Skyrim. The game had me from the opening sequence. To explore Hammerfell.....priceless. This story driven mythological blood fest is almost everything an RPG open world player could want. Build your guy or gal and play out the story however you like. The diversity of the Elder Scrolls did what two of my other favorite games didn't (Red Dead Redemption, Halo Reach). Everybody has a place and a roll to play in Tamriel. You can be Dragonborn. Star Wars didn't do this either, all hail Skyrim.

When I first saw this illustration I knew immediately that it involved the story of Saadia, from the "in my time of need quest". Saadia is on the run from Alik'r mercenary for supposedly betraying a royal house of Hammerfell.
 This picture as well as a lot of other Internet stuff says this particular side quest should have been a bigger deal in the game; Saadia should have been abducted and become a rescue mission, a follower, information broker and finally a marriage option. That's if you didn't decide to turn her over to Kematu or kill her. Hopefully the unanswered questions and loose ends will be tightened up if the Redguard dlc comes out.
 Another mission could be to travel to the void, confront Sithis and kill the Night Mother in Oblivion.
The Night Mother speaks thru a corpse on the physical plane of Tamriel. Her daedra minions are giant half spider half naked humans. When I found this out I understood why it was a giant frostbite spider at the Brotherhood hideout.

As the Listener, I got caught up in the Dark Brotherhood of assassins. I fit in perfectly. I admit that I'm one of the truest and most skilled killers of this sect, prone to violence but not to evil. The Night Mother must die.  The Brotherhood is ingrained into the fabric of Skyrim and fit my purpose and  plan to become Restless League; and an extension of the rebirth of the RaGaga.

I present this to the most trusted of my men Nazir, one of the only ones that doesn't have to die with the matron of this sanctuary of evil. I wait to hear what he feels about this proposal.

Nazir: "Alamarr, I will follow you till I'm dust in the breeze. You do realize that."

 Now I know the Night Mother is finished.

The big enemy of Redguard
the Aldemeri Dominion

The mysteries of the Deep Elves has every Skyrimer on pins and needles as well as the appearance of sand worms, Nafaalilargus the dragon, air ships and the sword of Prince A'tor.

Whatever the dlc is called; Stros M'kai, Dragonstar or Redguard, us Alik'r are so ready to attack it, innocent reeklings might get trampled.

It is some things I want fixed too

Display cases should hold items that fit

Make being a Thane or team leader mean something

Your follower should be able to ride a horse

and Fix the Lydia glitch!
I'm tired of wearing the amulet of Mara every damn day.

Alik'r Tiger Dragon

the Dragonborn

Swirling crackling surges of power flow thru me as I step thru Dooms doorway this time. Again I find myself trapped in another world, another dimension behind deaths doorway. Nubia? By now Nubia must know that me learning to traverse these passageways has gone kinda wrong. My disappointed smile is greeted  by ///

( Whiterun guard ) Dragonborn! You must be, is it true...could you be the one to save Tamriel?

I've been here for years now. Benjamin Turner the Bronze Tiger now Alamarr Mairu, Alik'r Tiger Dragon; Dragonborn from Hammerfell. What is this Dragonborn? The prophesied hero of Skyrim. The master of the voice, the slayer of the world eater Alduin. But who am I really, and why? Why am I not with Nubia swimming the waters of the Styx, basking in the sun and hunting thru the lush of the Island Slaughter.  There is a paradise that most men have never seen there. Fatal danger is always lurking, but isn't it lurking everywhere? Skyrim is my reality now and right now the Aldmeri Dominion has to be put to an end.  Hammerfell and Skyrim must unite or witness another great war. I've stopped the blight from Sovngarde.

 killed Dragon priest and worn there mask
layed waist to the falmer,

 roared the growlish screech of their language in death cry and became respectfully feared by the betrayed. 
infiltrated every faction 
of this fantastic and dangerous place.
sent Draugr to final resting, banished Daedra
and even found a companion.
I've spent years here in Skyrim running blades thru vampires, werewolves and devils whenever I can. 
Until I get back, if I get back
I am Alamarr Mairu, Redguard
the Alik'r Tiger Dragon

watch the sky's traveler.
