A Mage that loves a Templar
and yet instead of a secret guerrilla war against the Thalmar Ulfric starts a bloody civil war for the crown? with the all the stormcloaks his war has gotten killed he could have stormed a dozen embassy's.
And whats wrong with fighting for your right to be called High King? What's wrong with fighting for your right to openly worship Talos? Why must Skyrim obey a weaken Empire to weak to rule? Skyrim is Nord land. The Nords should rule, not the Empire. Unfortunately a civil war is often necessary to root out corrupted politicians who refuses to step down from the bench. Torygg was a corrupted High King who worried more about Imperial coins then his countryside, and Ulfric witness this with his own eyes. While Torygg was intrigued about Ulfrics Ideas about Skyrims independence, he done nothing about it. Imperial coin was way more important than without.
