Hooray! I've never killed paarrhurnax either - I really don't get why Bethesda didn't make that an option in the vanilla game

Hmm, metric time is a thing! It's not really used anywhere though

Metric time: For the guy who thinks saying temperatures in Kelvin is too mainstream.

Is a chilly 511°R out today~

Haah, getting up early again was its own reward. I've got a little spring in my step, and there's so much more I can do with the extra hours in my day. Reckon I should do this more often. ^^

Lore reasons: The Blades hated the dragons because of their war crimes from a war that already ended a very long time ago thought to be extinct or retreated, long even before the first games, but even more so for their existence. Since the Dragonborn is out to kill Alduin in the modern era that is out to consume Nirn (The 4th Era as they termed it), siding with the Blades means YOU have to kill Paarthunax and be accosted by the Greybeards. Going back up there after that or staying around a bit, they will one-shot fus ru dah + fo krah diin combo you off their monastery. The Greybeards are a merciful, pacifist kind with only a couple of members left, not wishing violence (e.g. the Civil War) but admits a lot about the world ending since all the other members don't speak. You will hear a conversation with both sides' leaders as a prelude to the dilemma. There is a video about it in the vanilla version that explains it fully.



Assuming you are not partaking in the Civil War and seeking neutrality (that's what the Aldmeri Dominion wants to keep it prolonged so they can recover and fight again), you can hold a peace council with both sides (one or the other leader will try to propogate you into their side) to give Skyrim a chance at peace. By doing this for the Greybeards, the Blades will not be hostile to you due to being a Dragonborn, just that they cannot proceed any more missions/favors for the time being. You can still meditate with Paarthunax and do other favors for the Greybeards, but that is just it. Winning neutrality will make citizens, guards and jarls alike having their own opinions and feelings of such a bizarre option you made, and you no longer get to see Civil War related random encounters for the remainder of your playthrough.

Bottom line:

Siding with the Blades = You can get up to 3 "irreplacable" followers of your choice specifically to fight dragons fit with Blades' gear, but can be used in other battles, they'll all be there when you reach the target destination. You won't lose any marriage status for a spouse-type follower (if you have one). You get cool rewards for your light or heavy armor character when going out against any remaining dragons you yet fought, and acquiring their own set of blessings. However, as the video explains, drinking the potion meant to give you a permanent perk by Esbern is "glitched", meaning you get nothing out of the potion and a total waste.

Siding with the Greybeards = You can assuming you're not a bloodthirsty protagonist hold a peace council (if the war is ongoing and you yet to take either side's oath and is optional), meditate with the dragon to get blessings based on one of three specific shouts, and do favors for them at the monastery.

Well yes, that all makes sense, but the main problem is that if you don't side with the Blades, you just have the quest to kill Paarthirnax stuck in your journal uncompleted forever.

But the thing is not about perks. Might just be me but I prefer to be a lone wanderer (Thanks to FO3) so never take companions unless to sacrifice to start the Ebony Armor quest. Its personal Delphine is mean, the way she speaks to you at first when you're the only one who can save the world. Tells you she can kill you were you stand pffft bitch I am the guildmaster of both the thives and dark brotherhood and lord of vampires and not just that but in charge of the companions. And NEVER shows kindness and out of nowhere bluntly tells you to kill the best dragon...when that dragon is your best aid in the WHOLE main quest Greybeards being the second. He changed but the Blades are still bloodthirsty. "Serve the Dragonborn" BULLSHIT more like USE THE DRAGONBORN. I am no puppet and now I will reload to FUS RO DAH her down the mountain Sky Heaven Temple is built on

Also today I turned 24 o: D: :D :3 (idk how I feel)

Happy birthday! (I tried putting a confetti emoji in, but it came out as a question mark)

You're actually quite a bit younger than I expected for some reason!

And yeah, I don't have anything against Esbern, but I feel like the REAL reason the blades are but a shell of their former selves, is because nobody wanted to serve under Delphine.

well, 1000 milliseconds in a second, 1000 microseconds in a millisecond, 1000 nanoseconds in a microsecond. It's only sensible, trust me. (because the second is the SI-unit for time, and minutes/hrs are historic and day-time oriented time formats)

Hmm, metric time is a thing! It's not really used anywhere though

It's used all the time, in anything concerning engineering. Also, consider that these units are important for any circuit working at higher frequencies than 1Hz.

When concerned with Hz, yeah, true. But as an electronic engineering undergrad, I've never come across metric units of time for anything longer than 1 second.

Sakuya avas back for just Christmas time. This is the best Christmas one I found...wish there were more
