This has been bugging me for awhile, this is one of the main reasons I don't like the Nords too much, a prime example of this would be the Skyrim Civil War, where they are killing each other over whether they should secede from or stay loyal to the Empire instead of at least trying to debate the issue like civilized people. And of course Ulfric started the whole war when he killed Toryyg instead of at least asking him first to secede from the Empire, although that is probably because he wants to be crowned High King and doesn't really care about his country as he may say. But the point still stands, is Nordic culture too violent for its own good? And if so, does it need a drastic reform? What do you think?
