P.S: This has been a Theory for years, I'm just presenting it to you because I think you will also find it interesting. It's up to you to descide what you belieave. after all this is just a theory.
  • AndreasCableguy

    Lokir ran away because he was minutes from being executed with no affiliation to the rebels. He only mentions Rorikstead when Ralof said to him "Every Nords last thoughts should be of home".

  • zebraherd1234567890

    I get a man needs some money from wherever he can get it, but 5 fucking ads in a 10 minute video? -_-

  • Muthafuppinmofo

    Lokir wouldn't be going back alive to Rorikstead, as he was about to be beheaded at Helgen, so point one is wrong entirely. He's not scared to return there at all as all that go back are his remains. I think you make up way too many stories and forget about the facts. This is a fantasy game but that doesn't merit fantastical 'stories' being made up off the back of it.

  • Alex Westenberger

    So your saying my assassin should make a little trip to the town...

  • archaementon

    This video is shit. Stupid premise and 4 15 second ads for beer in it? Utter monetization asshatery. Not watching any more ESO vids

  • Jesus Christ

    Decide* believe* just saying not trying to be a dick

  • ThatGuyWith AMotorcyclePicrure

    At the end the women is being possessed by a deadra °.°

  • Joshua Perry

    I think lokir ran from the town because he killed that girl ( forgotten her name) and dumped her in the river

  • Aleks Sor

    Theory: They have the soul gems because of sacrifice and those gems bring good fortune?

  • andrew robertson

    Vampires. They have a vampire investation.

  • Kirito Kazuto

    One Minute endcard, so that the Video is Just 10 Minuten Long to Put in one extra ad ... Disgusting

  • Seung Choe

    5 ads for a 10min vid? Really??

  • Omen the God

    Lokir OF rorikstead did not mean hes going back to rorikstead

  • RastaBahn34

    They put 4 adds in this 10 minute video. Can’t even finish it.

  • Icy Bite

    Well that's why whiterun guard always made gossip :v

  • Starlit Coma

    The only time Lokir is going to be taken back to Rorikstead is after he is beheaded and unfortunately instead he runs because he doesn't want to die, which in terms he does by the archers. But his body will not be sent back to Rorikstead because of Alduim's attack (I hope I spelled that correctly)

  • Brian Roberts

    So, does Sissel's magical training have anything to do with her having prophetic dreams? She once told me she dreamt about a good dragon, who lived on top of the highest mountain in the world.

  • Jason Bouchard

    When did they said they would return him to Rorikstead? Didn't hear anything about it. I have replayed your video and just tried restarting the game twice in case I missed something... This part was made up. He was just about to be executed with the rest of us... So that bring me to think that all the rest is just your interpretation of whatever you saw or taught you saw.I must admit I am disapointed about that because now I am starting to ask myself... How many other video did ypu add info that was inaccurate?

  • TheMustacheGamer

    nice theory but if the Dragonborn (who was going to be beheaded even though he/she wasn't on the list) was gunna be killed then why would the imperials not behead Lokir?

  • Chekov Chekov

    Theory: When you start the game, Lokir prays to Akatosh, and who saves you, only the firstborn of Akatosh, Alduin. Idk if this is right but im pretty sure

  • Evilkat23

    This might not be your fault, but that fact that this video has FOUR ads for a 10 minute video, that's ridiculous. One is enough. One every two minutes is just overkill.

  • dantespaladin

    Lokir was on his way to Hammerfell? I wonder if the Redguard in Whiterun had anything to do with Lokir. They said they would be in Rorikstead when Saadia was found.

  • Commander Wolf

    But Rorikstead is an independent town they are not Rebels or the empire they use whiterun guards but they don't change when the Rebels take over

  • Effeffia Gonalick

    The town's bloody history might be why the crops thrive. Organic material makes for rich soil, anyone who composts can tell you that. While raw and unseasoned fruits and vegetables make up the bulk of composted materials, you can also easily compost meats. If there was a mass grave of fallen soldiers, the soil above it would eventually become very fertile indeed. While I think my theory might be a more, for lack of better words, realistic, this theory is FAR more interesting.

  • Christian Townsend

    And nords are not allowed to learn magic thats why he tried to hide it


    Wow 8:15 eso suddenly panics *pff whoo i almost thought you suck my dick there budy *

  • Dark God

    would it make sense for a fertile woman to take the role of sacrificing thr fertile woman of the town? nah, I think the kid's gonna be a sacrificr


    ESO 5 adds in 10:01 wtf man.

  • Justa Sloth

    I as ways just assumed that the wizard used the dead bodies as fertilizer.

  • The Wolf Master Gaming

    I know this has nothing to do with this but omg this is sooo funny. I was playing skyrim and Lydia walk in front of me and i killed her it so funny

  • Melissa Haeder

    Your a pretty smart guy eso, love your vids

  • Nick Wolhuter

    murdered everyone in rorikstead because they shot me with an arrow in the knee and i think the music of life is silence

  • Cadet Parisi

    Anyone else getting ads every 1 minute?

  • Guntherson220

    I've been stealing wheat for potions from Deadra worshipers?... Cool, I'm down with that.

  • Rule 34

    rorikstead or ''rødrikstad'' directly translated means ''red wealth town'' and rorik or ''rødrik'' doesent mean bloody warrior, ofc red or ''rød'' could be a description of blood and that he gains his wealth from drawing blood but i dont know the lore...

  • Milla Slimes

    I blame the chickens.The chickens did it all.

  • Krytern UK

    What? Where was it stated that he would be taken back to Rorikstead for his punishment? It doesn't say or imply that at all.

  • Shep Meister

    I love the lore "theories" enough to consider them cannon. You pull a lot of information readily available across all the games that really clear some things up. Keep up the great work!

  • Jay Petrini

    Rorik isn’t as old as you think. The Great War was between 4E 171 - 4E 175, and skyrim takes place during 4E 201. Say that rorik was born in 4E 151, making him at least 20 years old when he joined the war, he would only be 50 years old now, so just because he was around during the Great War doesn’t really mean that he was around when rorikstead was first created. As for women dying in child birth, skyrim is supposed to be themed in mid-evil Nordic times, which was very common back then. Just because it is mentioned in rorikstead doesn’t mean anything. I think that the mage is just some cool old dude that teaches children spells and that there is nothing wrong with rorikstead. Btw lokir wasn’t going back to rorikstead for his punishment he was running away from being killed at helgen

  • Harry Jones

    I think rorik and the man who healed him has the same story as Arthur pendragon and merlin

  • iAresFPS

    Does not matter I killed every one in there

  • Darryn du Plessis

    Delphine is from Riverwood;

  • Frank Ornelas

    Is it why u get that quest from sam(mage in markarth inn, u wake up in diabella temple and then tells u to go to rorikstead) then get the sanguine staff which summons a deatric warrior.

  • MrRickstopher

    This is all based on you not understanding the didialog. Lokir ran because he didn't want to be beheaded... That's it.

  • The Blessed Caesar Games

    The environment and the environment?

  • Christian Townsend

    The dedrea are all gods talos is even a dadrea

  • Giridhar Hariesh

    I think some people in rorikstead may be cannibals.. who eat human flesh and are worshipping arkay

  • Jay Renniers

    Isn't the daedra staff quest lead you to roriksted, coincidence, I think not

  • Norcal Bowhunter

    When you said that Lokir was going back to Rorikstead I had to watch that again, and once more for good measure. It is never said he is going to head back to Rorikstead.My theory, as with any theory it is just an opinion, is that Lokir was suppose to be helping the Stormcloaks sneak into Skyrim, double crossed them and sold them out to the high elves, and was added to the list of people to kill because the high elves didn't want him talking to anyone about the treachery that happened.The Stormcloaks were caught trying to sneak over, men and women who are very adapt at hiding and sneaking in the wilderness. So unless the imperials had a group of guards in every bush along the border then how did this happen? Lokir was on the list, now pay attention to the list. The list is a bunch of stormcloaks, including Lokir, yet when your name comes up he turns and says "He isn't on the list what should we do?" We know this list was made BEFORE they were captured, or else your name would be on it as well. So from somewhere they got a list of all the names of people who were suppose to be sneaking over including Lokir. That tells me that Lokir was suppose to be helping them sneak over.You also have to think about the statement Ralof makes to his sister. "They ambushed us.... Almost like they knew exactly where we'd be." Very odd statement to make don't you think?Now you may say, "Well if he was trying to help him why didn't anyone call him out on it?" Lets think about this, if you were going to try to sneak back into Skyrim who would know about it? Generally only the person in charge and the person they hired to sneak them in would know the details. Notice that Ulfric had his mouth gagged, he could not say anything at all in that moment, and it would make total sense that he would have kept it a secret so it would lower their chances of a spy telling others of the plan. The rest of the group probably only knew they were trying to sneak back into Skyrim, but only Ulfric knew how and who was going to help do that.Then we bring ourselves to Lokir, who kept saying he was a simple horse thief who got caught at the right moment. Of course he would do this if he was a double agent. You wouldn't want the Stormcloaks to know you just sold them out, nor would you want the Imperials to know you are part of the Stormcloaks. So his attitude towards the whole situation IMO doesn't change my theory, but just makes him out to be a double faced coward. I don't really think the Imperials knew about Lokir, but the elves did. This is why we see them in Helgen because someone told them where Ulfric was going to be sneaking, they told the Imperials, and the Imperials caught him.The real question I come up with is why then would the High Elves want to kill Lokir? Perhaps because of what Ralof said to his sister when he said "They wouldn't dare give Ulfric a fair trial. Treason, for fighting for your own people! All of Skyrim would have seen the truth then." Perhaps they wanted to keep what happened during the ambush a secret, and so they added Lokir to the list to shut him up. In the end, as interesting as the Lokir was in trouble for something horrible he did in Rorikstead is, I think it is looking to much into things. The fact that Lokir was on a list that included ONLY other stormcloaks is strange, the fact that Ralof makes the comment that "Almost like they knew exactly where we'd be." The fact that the elves were in Helgen gives me reason to believe they are the ones responsible for the ambush, and the fact you weren't on the list, meaning it was made before the ambush not after tells me Lokir was just a double crossing coward who was trying to save his skin.

  • yungjoshboul

    i was thinking that the mage (since he was such a great wizard) would use those soul gems to capture the souls of those women who gave child birth.
