Oblivion had "A Shadow Over Hackdirt", a quest based on "Literature/AShadowOverInnsmouth". Fallout 3 had [[NightmareFuel the Dunwich Building]], a shout-out to ''Literature/TheDunwichHorror''. If the trend continues, then following the theme of [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft's]] most famous stories, the next one will probably be a shout-out to "The Call of Cthulhu". The story of the game is already about an ancient god awakening and trying to destroy the world.

[[WMG: The Skyrim // WW2 comparison is wrong. Ulfric (or alternatively the player character) is actually a shout-out to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arminius Hermann Arminius]].]]

The Civil War tells you more about yourself than it does the world The Elder Scrolls. The Civil War stands in for the American Revolutionary War/American Civil War/WW1/WW2/The Romans fighting the Germanic peoples because it's up to the player to interpret it anyway they see fit. So for one person it might seem reminiscent of WW2, but for another it might not. The writers wanted the player to make their own assumptions, because that would just as much shape someone's perceptions of the storyline as the actual in-universe information on it.

* Nope. You can boast to Tsun about your exploits in the othet questlines. Delvin plays an important part in the DB questline and will comment if you're in both factions. Cicero has a special line about hour ability to Shout.

[[WMG: Alduin is a Satan figure.]]
He is the first and most glorious of Akatosh's creation. He's prideful, desiring power and lordship of humanity in his father's place. His father sends a hero to travel into the realm of the dead and put him in his place.

[[WMG: [[IKnowYourTrueName Saying the Champion of Cyrodiil's name will snap them out of being Sheogorath, at least temporarily]].]]
Pretty simple, really, except for one catch: the Champion didn't just take on the identity of Sheogorath, but also of Pelinal Whitestrake, and upon ceasing to be Sheogorath they would fall back into being Pelinal. So instead of an AffablyEvil MadGod, what you'll be dealing with is an AxCrazy [[TimeTravel time-traveling]] [[FantasticRacism elf-killing]] {{cyborg}}. The effect would, in fact, be similar to a Greymarch: the Daedra, including those on the Shivering Isles, backed the Ayleids back in the mists of time, and while Pelinal had ''[[RageAgainstTheHeavens issues]]'' even with the Aedra, it's expected that he'd be even angrier about the Daedra and thus likely to try to destroy the Shivering Isles. This works especially well in light of the above guess: Sheogorath says you'll be flayed alive and have an angry immortal skip rope with your entrails is you call him Ann Marie. [[ExactWords He doesn't say it'll be Sheogorath doing so]], [[ChaoticStupid though he also doesn't say it WON'T be]].

[[WMG: 'Ragnar the Red' is actually a garbled retelling of the events at Helgen.]]
A 'hero' comes to town (Ulfric, according to his supporters), someone leaves in the rough direction of Whiterun (the Dragonborn), and a woman decapitates someone after he says something arrogant ('my ancestors are smiling at me, Imperials - can you say the same?'). Also, there's nothing to say the Imperial Captain isn't named Matilda. Maybe someone escaping all the trouble in Helgen bumped into a bard on their travels, blurted out a story about what had happened, and the bard combined all these stories into one, and wrote the song 'Ragnar the Red'. With the speed at which news seems to travel in Skyrim (for instance, if you join a guild or commit a crime, every guard in the hold seems to know about it), it wouldn't be long before the song was played in every tavern in the province.

* Alternatively, the Empire is the Weimar Republic fresh off WorldWarI. This makes the Nazi-Stormcloak parallels more noticeable in terms of historical formation.

[[WMG: Nazeem was once a respected advisor to the Jarl of Whiterun, but was supplanted when the Dragonborn arrived.]]
* He and his wife (Ahlam) seem convinced that he spends a lot of time up in Dragonsreach (and she dislikes him, so is unlikely to lie on his behalf), but you never see him up there
* Perhaps when the Dragonborn arrived in Whiterun, Balgruuf became instantly more interested in him/her than in the advice of stale, patronising Nazeem, so for one reason or another, Nazeem lost whatever privileges he had
* He cannot accept that the Jarl no longer cares for his advice, so continues to peddle the story that he is a respected man of status, despite living in a tavern and spending his time wandering aimlessly around a marketplace (may double as Tearjerker).
