Venture Though Tamriel
The Stormcloaks are a Rebel faction led by Ulfric Stormcloak that you have the option of joining. They seek to defeat the Imperial Legion that controls most of Skyrim, end the Empire’s rule over the land, and turn Skyrim into an independent country. They primarily rely on the use of axes and other melee weapons in combat, as well as hit-and-run tactics to overwhelm the larger Imperial armies. Most of the eastern half of Skyrim is currently under Stormcloak control, with the critical Whiterun hold in central Skyrim remaining nominally neutral but friendly to Imperial traffic as Skyrim opens.
