Ok so all the images shows you as this Horn wearing barbarian. Is that it???? no other choices you have to be a barbarian??? Do i get to pick a different race? gender? class? Don't get me wrong the graphics look cool but they need to show more variations to the game not the same thing? :confused:

It's not dumb. The game is centred on the nords, and for a lot of people who like the mythos of TES series it's a place they want to see a lot of things centred around. But you can choose all the races, both sexes, age, and all the rest. There's a tube video showing it if you want, just look for it.

Yes, it kind of is a dumb question.

The horned barbarian is just what Bethesda chose to use as their posterchild. You can choose between several different races/gender(http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Races) and you can wear what armour you like and play the game whatever way you like.

To prevent op from meandering on the internet (it can be scary place :P), yes, most definitely.

There are ten races to choose from:
High Elves
Dark Elves
Wood Elves
Imperial
Nord
Breton
Argonian
Orc
Redguard
Khajiit

Each having its choice of gender, and the game has a freeform class system. Basically means you can be whatever you want from a straight-up warrior, thief or mage, to mixing things up however you want.

Only reason you see that Nordic warrior everywhere is for marketing purposes. :P

It was incredibly dumb.

1) What kinda game allows you to be a barbarian and only that?
2) He clearly didn't watch or research anything skyrim related. There are hundreds of videos on google or youtube/etc and CLEARLY show magic and archery, sneaking and dragons amongst classic sword/shield combat.

Next time at least put in a little effort before asking crazy questions.

The question itself based on marketing images is kinda dumb, Bethesda are definitely pushing the Nord as a poster child, so it's somewhat forgiveable.

What is inexcusably stupid is posting this on the Steam forum where there are dozens of topics talking about racial abilities, what race do you want to play, etc.

So the OP is either stupid, VERY new to the internet, or blind.

There are no stupid questions... But there are stupid people who do happen to ask questions.

You obviously don't know anything about Skyrim, or the elder scrolls for that matter if you don't already have that answer. Go to Wikipedia and get the elder scrolls for idiots knowledge.

No offense intended, but it was a really terrible question to ask here.
