** Your Dragonborn can become a Thane in all nine holds. Most Jarls will say it's a purely honorary title, but NPC Thanes are shown to be valuable members of the Jarl's court (not as important as Housecarls or Stewards, but still). Accumulation of meaningless honors, or stepping stone to something more?

* The fact that Hermaeus Mora uses gifts of power to draw the Dragonborn into his service is not just a GenreSavvy ploy to pull the player in through offers of power. It's also a way to appeal to the dragon soul in the Dragonborn by appealing to the dragon's inborn desire for power.

* The population of Windhelm forces the Dunmer into the Grey Quarter, and forces the Argonians to live on the docks, neither of which are prime real estate. This ''could'' be due to the Stormcloaks' racism...or it could be purely pragmatic on Ulfric's part. Consider that there are at least two Altmer (aka, the same race as the Thalmor) living in the better parts of the city; if the Stormcloaks were as racist as some make them out to be, they would either boot them out or execute them. More importantly, remember that the Dunmer and the Argonians absolutely despise each other, and have ''VERY'' good reasons to do so -- the Dunmer enslaved the Argonians, and after the eruption of Red Mountain, the Argonians revolted and took over half of the Dunmer homeland. Keeping their respective populations to certain areas of Windhelm may be the only way to keep them from rioting in the streets.

** Additional brilliance: if you look at the stats for the armors, Stormcloak Cuirasses are slightly inferior to the armor worn by Hold Guards. Well, of course they are... Windhelm is the only city we've seen where anyone's making Stormcloak equipment, and even then, it's all the work of a single blacksmith (plus his assistant), so of course the quality's suffered some. The Empire and other Hold Guards, on the other hand, either had their equipment made beforehand at a more reasonable pace, or the workload's been distributed among multiple smiths, such as Adrianne in Whiterun and Beirand in Solitude.

* In Riften, you can meet a member of the Black-Briar family who's aspiring to become an alchemist. Well and good so far. She then mentions that her experiments have caused her to run low on certain ingredients, and she asks the Dragonborn to fetch more for her. Okay... and then the quest itself tells you to pick up Nirnroot, Deathbell, and Nightshade, all of which are excellent baseline ingredients for crafting poisons. And she needs ''20'' of each. It makes those "experiments" of hers take on a whole new meaning... her speech about why she's interested in alchemy certainly doesn't help matters.

** It's also possible that Lokir is being executed for the exact same reason that the Dragonborn is. Tullius is trying to end the Civil War as quickly as possible, hence why Ulfric and everyone else captured in the ambush aren't given any kind of trial before their execution. They can't take the risk of any of the Stormcloaks escaping and telling the world what happened, because the outrage this could provoke amongst the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Nords]] could make the political situation in Skyrim even ''worse''. So, while they're not in Stormcloak uniforms, the Dragonborn and Lokir have to die in order to avoid this potential disaster.

*** There are also extremely ''dis''honorable people on both sides. The most corrupt Jarls on either side (Maven Black-Briar of the Rift for the Imperials and Thongvor Silver-Blood of the Reach for the Stormcloaks) are not the Hold's original Jarls; the Hold in question would have to be conquered by the player's faction before they take over. No matter which faction you side with (or even if you don't side with a faction at all; if you're still neutral at the start of "Season Unending", the negotiation plays like you sided with the Empire), you WILL end up with one of the vilest people in Skyrim in control of a major hold.

**** Alduin, Mirmulnir, and Durnehviir all recognize that you are Dragonborn by looking at you. If you haven't yet discovered that you're Dragonborn, Durnehviir won't know why he thinks you're a fellow dragon - he probably doesn't know what a Dragonborn is due to his time in the Soul Cairn cutting him off from news. Alduin and Mirmulnir both recognize you as Dragonborn by looking at you but both take a while to realize it. As mentioned, [[spoiler: Alduin will eventually target you specifically]], while Mirmulnir realizes that you're Dragonborn only just before he dies, hence his BigNo. This indicates that dragons can recognize your dragon soul by looking at you but they need a good look - they can't tell at a glance.
