First off, on my first playthrough I decided the civil war in favor of the Stormcloaks. I did this before completing the main quest. I regret this for two reasons. If you don't decide the civil war before the main quest is through, you get the coolest quest ever, which basically revolves around negotiating a truce between the Empire and Stormcloaks for the duration of the dragon crisis. Some of the voice actors get some much needed screen time during this meeting, such as Max von Sydow. The other reason I regret siding with the Stormcloaks is because Ulfric's a dick. Go figure.
But it's what happens after the truce negotiating that is of the essence. When Delphine approaches you with the ultimatum of either killing Parturnaax or never getting any aid from the Blades, I was kinda shocked. First off, it seems like a dick move to force me into doing a thing by putting an ultimatum like that, after I've been helping them for several quests. If they want him dead, then go ahead and kill him. That, combined with the fact Parturnaax is a real cool dude, pushed me in the direction of siding with him on my first playthrough. But as I've said, I'm on my second playthrough now, and I'm wondering what to do. Did you guys kill Parthurnaax or let him live? If you killed him, is there any reward from the Blades, and do they have a storyline beyond the main quest?
Thanks for reading my rambling, and hopefully you answer my questions.
A merry christmas, and a happy new year to all!
