I'll probably choose Nord or Imperial.
Because I'm racist like that...
What race will your first character be?
I'm tossing between a Dark Elf or a High Elf. Dark Elf for the massive fire resistance that race always has, and High Elf for the increased magicka pool at the cost of 100% weakness to magic. There have been ways to alleviate that huge weakness, so when that is taken care of it will always end up as a really powerful spellcaster race in the latter end of the game.
@Verb4tim: Hey, is that the Neuromancer cover as part of your icon? The races haven't been announced, but supposedly there are more choices than usual. "Yeah it is, love that book.
I might play as a Nord or High/Dark Elf. Hoping for more variables in appearance sliders.
Usually go Dark Elf. Did a magic/stealth hybrid that worked out for me really well in Oblivion, and with the way the skills seem to go now, looks like it might go even better.
Nord does seem like the obvious choice for Skyrim, though. And it's been awhile since I've done a pure warrior in, well, any RPG.
Possibly an Orc. I was never really into Orcs till I started a Morrowind playthrough as one as a joke. Then I started taking it seriously, and now my Orc can kill almost anything in one hit with an axe. It's pretty badass.
If not that, a Breton. Or, hell, maybe I'll play as something I've never played as before. A magic central character might be a challenge.
