  • 47most SOON

    I expected you to discuss why Alduin was easier to defeat than all theLegendary dragons!

  • pixelshock

    Maybe it was Miraak who was supposed to wear Konahrik?

  • Ashbee Gaming

    You should cover Rorikstead! Definitely a spooky theory going on there

  • 47most SOON

    I love your outros so much

  • øyvind vego

    legend says that all guards once were adventurers, until they all took an arrow to the knee

  • Jack Plays Folk

    I think Alduin came to Helgen for the mead with juniper berries

  • Filip Petrovic

    If you kill Sadia in front of Kamatu he will respond "No now all the work is for nothing" and will not react hostile but just walk off. If they had to kill her they wouldn't mind what you did. Also Sadia's story about speaking out against the Thalmor is a lie as Hammerfall is not under Thalmor control but is still fighting with them as the Alakir tell you and if you look deeper into it you would find out for your self. So Sadia is the one who is lying

  • Nablaal Servant of Nurgle

    Alduin was feeding off the souls the Civil War sent to Sovngarde, I believe he attacked in order to allow Ulfric to escape, thus perpetuating the war and allowing his feast to continue.

  • Mysterious stranger

    5:41 "Murder them to death."

  • Tarlo The Boar

    I like the first theory of Lokir's Prayer being Answered by Alduin

  • M'aiq The Liar

    Alduin was at Helgen to allow Ulfric to escape because more deaths in the civil war means more souls of the dead to gain power from. If ANYONE in Helgen would have stood out to Alduin at that moment of time it would have been someone that COULD ALREADY shout, and had used it in battle. Not some no named prisoner in rags that hasn't even learned his first word of power or absorbed a dragon soul yet.

  • Dylath

    Always love that Dragon Priest theory everytime I hear it

  • That_random_guy

    I have a different theory as to why Alduin attacked Helgan During a conversation with Paarthunax he mentions that the Ancient Nords used an Elder Scroll to send him forward in timeI believe when they sent him forward in time they unknowingly and unintentionally sent him to when The Imperials were about to execute the Stormcloaks at HelganWhen he realised that he was sent forward in time by the nords , in a fit of anger attacked Helgan and burnt it to the ground I believe this is the reason why Alduin attacked Helgan.

  • ShadewDonger

    Ahhh so I'm the Avatar: The Last Dragon Slayer good to know

  • T'up North

    I think Alduin attacked Helgen to prolong the civil war to weaken skyrim making the province less able to deal with his threat and to ensure the death of more true nords filling soviegn guard with souls for Alduin to consume to gain power

  • 薄荷mint

    "Skyrim 5: 5 Spooky theories..."Skyrim 5 huhedit Nate's changed it now

  • Patryk Rogala

    4:51 Saadia's burial urine, you say? Never change, Nate.

  • Not Your Business

    I always give Saadia to the Warriors. I don't trust women easily....

  • Eric Lutzow

    "in my time of need" is actually a quest you are meant to figure out based on background lore and logic. hammerfell hates the thalmor, and alik'r hates them more so than anyone else in the world, yes nords even you. so the alik'r would never work for the thalmor. Taneth would never be angry that someone spoke out against the thalmor, as literally everyone in the city speaks out against them. also the thalmor wouldn't hire that sort of thing out, they'd just take care of it themselves. why trust some mercs to do it, when their agents are in the area anyway.

  • CrazyArcade Game

    I love how all the BLOOD dragons are GREEN

  • Yatagaru crow

    so my blizzard lizard wizard is a reincarnation of shor? nice!

  • jarlaxle 508

    Aldrin is trying to keep the war going so he can eat the souls of the dead and keep he's power growing. That's why he attacks helgen

  • Paige C

    My personal theory is that Alduin attacked Helgen to save you, because he was so cocky and overconfident he was sure that he would win your battle and wanted that glory. Letting you die at the hand of an executioner wouldn't make for a great tale after all. But eventually his hubris is his downfall. I like this theory because it shows Alduin as the overconfident character he is, being so sure his plan would succeed he is ultimately his own downfall, not only saving the life of the person who would eventually defeat him, but in fact setting into motion the chain of events that would result in his defeat.

  • Violent Beetle

    It is most likely Alduin simply didn't know who Dragonborn is. Sensed him in Helgen, but didn't know if he's a prisoner, a citizen or a soldier.

  • InVaiin

    1:58 Achilles heel not arrow in the knee. Damnit Skyrim!

  • Tim Hartong

    Alduin was sent forward in time by the ancient blades at the throath of the world. He reappeared there, probably raged, and helgen was the closest town to ravage. I am pretty sure the allignment of these events was convenient chance

  • Dynamic Bucket

    The reason Skyrim's intro is so memorable is because you have to suffer through it every time you want to start over...

  • adamhicks24

    Hey Nate keep it up feel better

  • They Told Me I Could Become Anything, So I became an Eggplant

    There is no one named Ysmir. Ysmir is a Title Given by the Nords. "Dragon of the North" Or "Shor's Avatar". The Last DB, Talos,Wulfharth, and Bad Ass Elf Hunter Pelinal were Named Ysmir.

  • BurntToast 270

    Well if Saadia spoke out against the dominion she would be praised because hammerfell wasn't even under the control of the elves to begin with so it would be impossible to really speak out against them.

  • Galimeer5

    Konahrik is actually pronounced "co-NAH-rick"...just had to point that out...Also, I always suspected Miraak was supposed to be Konahrik, but then he went over to the Dark Side with Hermaeus Mora and got all his tentacle stuff, including his unique mask, which is much more Daedric than ancient Nordic/draconic.

  • Dale Stephanson

    lol I love these random videos on Skyrim. I just got recommended one of Camelwork's and clicked your "5 Crazy things about Skyrim" next...and man, do I like your narration/voice better! xD I've watched so many videos.Or for the Dragon Priest masks they would convene and elect a Dragon Priest lord or w/e? Since you need a separate wooden mask to get to the alternate plane where Konahrik's mask was wouldn't that mean there was another priest of sorts who would lead them to the plane?

  • WaffleTron

    The he just say Dragon's Bridge instead of Dragonsreach?

  • Flynn Smith

    Im SHOR we'll find him soon

  • MajorMoron

    Dragon priests= overglorified draugrOH BURN!!!love your vids mankeep going

  • crimson lord

    Maybe that nameless/maskless dragon priest in dragonborn dlc was the owner of konahrik

  • Guitar Nerd

    Personally, I think Alduin attacking Helgen was for a much more mundane reason. If you remember, Alduin was not actually banished, merely pushed forward in time, and the time where he was pushed just so happened to be 4E 201. Being understandably angry, he attacks the nearest town to him, which just so happens to be Helgen. So, Alduin being pushed forward in time, to him attacking Helgen, that was only 5 minutes ago by his perspective.

  • Thespartanll

    The dragon born is technically part of akatosh so that might be why Alduin came to Helgen because of the link between alduin,the Dragonborn and akatosh.

  • Shaayan periss

    I feel kematu and the hammerfell warriors are right because the Thalmor lost the war with hammerfell and thus it is independant, they have no jurisdiction there, she has no reason to run away for speaking out against the thalmor

  • Avatar of Madness

    I'm pretty sure that the reason Shor wasn't there was because he was killed during the Dawn Era by Auri-el and Trinimac, his Heart torn out, only to be fired into the sea, where Red Mountain and the island of Vvardenfell grew around it, and his body being ripped in half, becoming the two moons of Masser and Secunda, but momentarily reforming when the two moons eclipse. That makes him sound pretty dead to me.

  • Dialask Isel

    We all know that number 1 is wrong. Clearly, being sent forward in time, Alduin believed he'd be able to go and see the new and wonderous creation of the 7 11. So, wandering, he searched high and low for it... until he realized he had not yet been sent far enough in the future. Lost and grumpy, he decided to eat Helgen to satiate his rage and thrist for cheap oversized drinks.

  • tyrant778 -

    Guess you could say maven’s feud was “water under the bridge”!

  • Red Judas

    While Alduin and Akatosh are separate beings, according to lore, it's a popular belief that Alduin and Akatosh are the same.

  • Sir white a lot the pagan preacher

    You forgot to mention that within maven blackbriars basement, there is a black sacrament.

  • gosuckacat

    1:56 I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the Achilles heel and died.

  • TheBlackKnight101

    I always thought that the spectral dragon priest that occasionally gets summoned via the mask is konahriik himself... since the player wears it now, they get to command him.. just speculation..

  • jesus yebenes

    Hi nate pllz do a top ten races

  • Mama Jacque

    Holy shit, that first one kinda got me.

  • Daniel Mason

    Saadia was lying. Why on earth would you run from Hammerfel, a nation that is at war with the Thalmor, to a nation that is essentially controlled by the Thalmor. Also, considering the zeal of Thalmor Justiciar in skyrim, it is unlikely for the Thalmor to hire mercenaries to kill someone, especially someone important. Not to mention the mercenaries they supposedly hired were redguards who weren't even trusted to enter whiterun. Even if the Thalmor did this, they would be clever enough to hire some Nords.(considering I have been attacked by steel plated thugs in whiterun multiple times, yet the guards keep letting them at me)

  • Munchycrust

    I always like to think that the character you play in each game is the reincarnation of the one you played in the previous game.

  • huverdoose

    Question: what is it about Christophe that makes his bones lighter than water?

  • Solitude AJ

    If Alduin killed the dragon born, he would have gained more power, that's why.

  • _TheChosenOne_

    4:15 ok I don't know if it is a mod for retexture, but that "Redguard" looks more like a Redguard imposter

  • Mórrigana O'Dwyer/Sigurdsdóttir

    Speaking of Akatosh, anyone ever wonder if his name is like a dragon name? Ah-Kah-Tosh. 3 Words of power?

  • TheCreeperwars

    Adding to No. 2:Maven also is known to work with the dark brotherhoodWhich would confirm the "sending a person to kill him" ^^Nice video once again !

  • Kevin

    Are you Shor about these theories?

  • elijah teeter

    So if you are a incarnation of shor then that means the player character in the last 3 games are all gods

  • Taykuno ken

    So , every Nord can enter Sovengard after death ? what if a am a Nordic warrior fighting for the empire but i pray to dibella

  • Tarlo The Boar

    If my Dragonborn could side With The Dragon's he definitely would!

  • Stewart Bates

    To me, Alduin arriving at Helgen was simply the fact he re-appeared where he was removed from - Throat of the World. It's more likely Helgen was the first human village he spotted as he took off (Confused about why the village suddenly appeared from his perspective)The quest for Saadia - I'd call them both being liars. Think about it - in Oblivion the redguard mage in Cheydinhal tells us that Redguards despise magic and it's users - yet despite this Kematu uses magic, not very Alik'r like. But if Saadia was helping the Thalmor, why have her hide in the one completely unsafe area for Thalmor spies? Wouldn't re-assignment be to somewhere they have already secured?. Yet if Kematu was a Thalmor spy, tracking her for them, why didn't he use the Thalmor authority to just make the guards let him and his men in the gate to search for her? To me it seems like both sides are lying to you. Moral of the story - Everyone is a dick and just kill everyone on both sides.

  • Alix

    Does anyone know the song at the end of his videos? 10:09

  • Calamity556

    I just give Saadia to Kematu because it's the fastest way to complete the quest.

  • Ballin Balgruuf

    I read a book that all of the 8 dragon priests regularly held council at the labyrinthian. So I don't think that collecting the masks was a challenge set by the dragons. I think the dragon priests simply displayed their masks on the altar during the council presided by the unknown konahriik.

  • Benjamin Delgado

    I always liked wearing mirak's armor with the konorick mask and just relying on shouts as my only weapon.

  • Jer berus

    You bring up a good point. There are both 8 dragon priests and 8 divines. There might be something to this. I could also speculate that Talos is the 9th divine, and perhaps you, the last/most recent dragon-born, were supposed to be the 9th dragon priest? Ah, we had the same idea...I finished watching the rest of your theory.

  • Noah Edwards

    Why do all your redguards look white?

  • Evan

    I read somewhere that there are no evidence of Iman anywhere within TES lore. Iman is the name Saadia reveals to you as her real name, so many speculate she’s lying.

  • Nicholas Landingham

    Hey Nate. I was in the Castle Dour Dungeon and I searched the “evidence chest” and found a key to the Whispering Door in Whiterun. Can you cover this?

  • Thorren

    Why are your redguards white? I noticed Saadia and your Alik'r Warrior's white
