    I just wanted to know which guild, group, or league in skyrim is your favorite.

    Probably the Dark Brotherhood.

    Awesome NPC's, great quests, and awesome storyline.

    Probably The Thieves Guild

    The Bards College. What a wasted opportunity.

    The Thieves Guild.

    In Oblivion it was the Dark Brotherhood by far. And to be honest, that's why I am a bit disappointed by the DB in Skyrim, I really hoped to set up kills so they look like accidents again, or try to get my bonus by not letting anyone see the murder, that kind of stuff. Don't get me wrong, the DB is still awesome in Skyrim, but this time around, Thieves Guild impressed me a bit more.

    It's probably a split between the Dark Brotherhood, the Dawnguard, and the Volkihar for me. DB has some nice armor (Now that I've installed a mod to rid my Skyrim of gimp suits [Don't google that, kids]) and a pretty interesting storyline. The Dawnguard is like shields and heavy armor and crossbows and restoration magic, all of which I'm down with. The Volkihar have two epic rings (The Magicka ring is more epic, unfortunately) which continually tempt me to join them.

    I use Masters of Death. Very Assassins Creed-y

    I agree with you in the crossbow's. As a Vampire I meticulously lure unsuspecting scouts just to harvest bolts.

    Hmm I checked it up, it does look good but I also use ''Arise the black sacrament''.
    Choices, choices

    I'm very picky when it comes to armor. That one is good, but it doesn't suit my personal tastes :P

    (I actually am one of the only people I know to still like the vanilla armor)

    Thank you both. I am glad to be finally rid of the DB pyjamas. ^_^

    Yea I understand that the vanilla DB armour is supposed to be "free" and "easy to  maneuver in" but it just rubs me the wrong way, like my Dovakiin is rocking spandex. But I love the robes, especially with the High res version of improved Npc clothing.

    I played the Thieves guild right after I finished the Dark Brotherhood. With that experience, the Thieves guild seems like it had a better story-line. In terms of being the "Night Mother," Nocturnal was far better.

    Love the thieves guild. Just seems to have a bit more substance than most of the other guilds. Love the 'one man crime wave' feeling of the side missions and the way it takes a bit of effort to earn your way to the top. Several other factions seem way too short in comparison - 'oh hey there newcomer ... would you like to be our new leader?'. Also Nocturnal is the only daedric prince that gives you a feeling of some danger in dealing with her - you feel you are making a pact that your immortal soul could come to regret. Most of the others just throw an artifact at you and let you get on with it.

    I have to go with Dawnguard. I like their characters and their cause, and they feel like a guild. Thieves Guild would be second choice, but I don't identify with their cause much. Kind of the same with the Volkihar but there's also no real support from them; just a place to live and quest givers.

    I don't like "evil" or law breaking characters, but the thieves' guild wins out for me. The story was actually interesting. Plus, you had to work to be become the guild master. I appreciated that.

    I was largely disappointed with the guilds this time around, but my favorite would have to be the College. I'm a sucker for anything that expands on the lore, and I just felt that the College did that the most.

    I'm going to go with the Legion. I like how the armor and weaponry looked like it was something that was supposed to be mass produced, and I enjoy working with Tullius and Rikke. Galmar just got on my nerves...
