    How so?

    It would likely still take a decade to have thousands of them.

    And who says the Khajiit will do it? I doubt they will let the Altmer do any such thing.

    The problem is that Khajiit are a civilized race, not a bunch of animals. You can't just get them in a room and say "start reproducing"!

    What if it was Orsinium that turned the tide of war and conquered the Empire? That would be something else. Something I'd like to see. An Orcish Emperor. I still dont see it happening.

    I'd like to think that a foreign advisory would come to the aid of the Empire as well. You know like those Potentates. Something tells me that it will happen.

    Alduin, there had 30 years. And that's just the battle cats and Cathay rants. Not to mention time the births and the phases of the moon for other breeds.

    Vazgen, we've done it with ppl IRL.

    They had 30 years, not a single shred of evidence that they did, or could have done something like that. The Khajiit wouldn't go along.

    Alcohol and parties on certain days and months later, you got a baby born on a certain moon phase

    The Altmer don't fully control Elsweyr, they don't have the right or power to force them to do anything.

    You forget that Elseweyr is not a client state to Dominion. They are allies. If a word got out that Altmer are doing such things the Khajiit will turn on them in a second.

    What's next, mind controlling the entire Khajiit population and turn Elsweyr into a giant orgy?

    Having no right doesn't stop you. Besides, this is just what I'd do. I'm cold like that.

  • October 25, 2013 12:49 PM EDT

    Then don't let it get out. Governments do experiments on the unaware populous all the time.

    One does not simply conquer Elsweyr. Besides, that would make Elsweyr support the Empire, and the Empire can step in having gained another provinces, the Altmer would probably lose their greatest source of manpower.

    Hmmm. Towns at a time, it could be possible to do that alduin. Good idea

    They killed a few refugees in Hammerfell and the word got out. You can't hide murder of entire families, especially in a society like Khajiit.

    It would backfire. If they try to use force on Khajiit they will be outnumbered. They have no manpower to do so, Bosmer won't be much of a help - Khajiit know how to deal with them already.

  • October 25, 2013 12:54 PM EDT

    I'm not talking murder, I'm talking a manufactured baby boom. Why wouldn't the dominion do it? The khajiit are the fastest reproducers they got. Exploit your resources.

    Because they would have to force them to, the Khajiit won't go along with it.

    Also as what was stated before, they are allies. Did the Germans exploit the Japanese in WW2? No they fought together, and they fought to the end. Just like how these two would do. Without Elsweyr the Dominion cannot get far.

    Alcohol has never forced anyone to do anything. Add a little alcohol, some girls and guys on the right day of the year all around the province for 30 years. Nothing to it. Not much manpower needed, the khajiit will have other babies too, nothing will be suspected. Nothing will be found out. Just placing dominos, and letting them fall over naturally.

    Dude these are Khajiit, they aren't dumb mindless beasts. They are cunning and intellectual. A plan like that would be diffused at best, and it would tell the people of Elsweyr what the Dominion was really up to. War-Mongering. If by my understanding the Khajiit are a peaceful race. Only prone to violence when necessity calls for it.

    What? I don't think you know how alcohol and people work, mate..

    Tosh Raka died in 4E 96 at the hands of the Nerevar. Everyone knows this.
