Of the four MINOR cities, which is your favorite?

Dawnstar

Falkreath

Morthal

Winterhold (I could consider it minor due to the lack of public municipal and residential buildings)

I'd have to go with Falkreath as my favorite of the smaller four cities. It's quaint, off the beaten path, and has all the shops and government buildings of any of the major cities. What's YOUR favorite of the four?

I've spent 200 plus hours in Skyrim and I've barely been in any of those. Does Dawnstar even have a pub?

Morthal. Me and the old lady Jarl are best buds.

Does Morthal have that cool questline with the ghosts and such? Because that quest was awesome.

Over my time with the game I have spent maybe 2-3 minutes in total in Falkreath. It was really nice there, too bad there is nothing to do besides the Hircine quest.

WInterhold I suppose. I can't even picture the other ones. I had to google them.

Winterhold. Only other one I frequent is Dawnstar, and that's only to go to the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary or murder the shit out of some townsfolk.

Edit: Wait, I'll change that answer to Falkreath. For some reason I always mistake Winterhold for Windhelm.

A toss up between Winterhold or Falkreath. It would probably be easy to pick one over the other if dragons didn't attack me every time I went to either of them.

Pretty sure every city/town has an Inn.

As for me, Winterhold followed by Dawnstar/Morthal. I spend a good amount of time in Dawnstar, but I always become a Thane super fast in Morthal (also, the Jarl is pretty cool). Thinking about it, I do like the snow-covered areas, so those make sense.

Still, Winterhold, because magic. Literally.

Same here! Every time I enter Falkreath I basically have to assume that there will be a dragon attack as soon as I fast travel there.

I don't think Winterhold is a minor town.

and I've committed to many crimes to go back to Falkreath

I'm going to go with Dawnstar.

It reminds me of the small fishing villages in Morrowind.

Morthal because the Jarl for that city bailed me out big time for the Diplomatic Immunity Quest.

Falkreath. It reminds me of Riverwood, which is beautiful. It has a decent number of shops and interesting people. Too bad there is just one major quest there, the one with Hircine.

Falkreath, because of their respect of the dead. It brings to mind Morrowind's primary religion, and learning Necromancy in Ultima VIII.
