Skyrim background

Nords are one of the eight playable races in Daggerfall.

The citizens of Skyrim are a tall and fair-haired people. Strong, willful, and hardy, Nords are famous for their resistance to cold, even magical frost, and are known for their prowess as warriors.

Character Creation[edit]

Nord male PC
Nord female PC
"Nords hail from the province of Skyrim. You are part of a tall and fair-skinned people, strong, willful, and hardy. Owing to the climate of Skyrim, Nords are resistant to the coldest of temperatures, and take little damage even from ice-based magical attacks. Nords are historically well-suited to all the arts of the warrior."

Note: The attribute modifiers are applied when you choose a class, but have no effect for custom classes. The special advantage always applies. Note that the Nord +30% Resistance to Frost special advantage is not the same as the selectable class special advantage "Resistance to Frost", which instead confers +25% frost resistance to any race.
