So, thinking of doing the stormcloak questline, but I really do like Jarl Balgruff, he's cool. Thing is, despite being a thalmor hater, and talos worshipper himself, he still gives the axe back and you're forced to invade Whiterun and depose him. Is there a way to stop that decision and get him to keep the axe, thus joining the stormcloak cause without bloodshed?

No, there isn't. Balgruf will continue to support the Empire no matter what.

  • Well... damn. Was hoping there was some way to fix that without a mod.
