Here is a question posted in the latest "Ask us anything" thread over at the TESO website: -
Throughout the Elder Scrolls series, there has been enmity towards the Orsimer on the part of the Bretons and Redguard. Even though the Orsimer are a part of the Daggerfall Covenant, will we see any level of enmity towards Orsimer NPCs and Orsimer players contained in quests, quest-giver dialogue or general NPC chatter/dialogue? – By Hwrath go-Khash
A political treaty like the Daggerfall Covenant doesn’t necessarily change the attitudes of the people whose leaders signed the treaty. Some people, tired of conflict between the races, have embraced the alliance, while others still regard their old antagonists with suspicion, or even open hostility.
Now the reason I post this is it has me confussed. With the way the factions are set-up so that their 3 faction PvP works, I have always disliked how they are restricting things, to get it to work. Races are locked into particular factions, factions lands locked to non factions etc. But the above answer gives me hope they understand what locking down everything does to the possibilities for the game and that perhaps they have (or at least might be considering) openning up race/faction locks to allow people to be openly hostile to factions, even if officially supported by their racial faction.
Is it just whishful thinking on my part and am I reading too much into it? Being able to create an Orc that doesn't want to help the faction and wants to openly join another faction (for example) would be so great in terms of gameplay and characterisation as well as political and PvP possibilities....your in Cyrodil, see a fellow Orc, wave a greeting....they are not part of the covenent!!!
What do you think?
