Ok so I've been playing skyrim elder scrolls v and I am addicted. I know that if I become a vampire I can't become a werewolf. Is there any other restrictions on joining factions or a limit on how many factions I can join?

There are no limit to the number of factions you can join, and you can join all the factions, bar Both the Stormcloak and the imperials, and the Dawnguard and the Clan. In each case you can join one or the other. Here is a list of joinable factions. Some factions can be invalidated by the following:

  • Greybeards:

    Killing Paarthurnax

  • Dark Brotherhood:

    - Destroying the dark brotherhood

  • Imperial Legion:

    Joining the stormcloaks

  • Stormcloaks:

    - Joining the legion

  • Dawngaurd:

    -Accepting the gift in "A new order"

  • Volkihar Clan:

    -Rejecting the gift in "The new order"

These will invalidate joining these, so if you want to join the Dawngaurd:

you have to refuse the gift.

    You’ll effectively get kicked out of the Blades for not doing your first spoiler. You also lose your chance to join the Coven of Namira if you refuse when offered. Aug 23, 2016 at 12:55

    elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Paarthurnax_(Quest) They don't kick you out so much as refuse to help you until you do it. Note from wiki: "There is no actual way of denying the request of the Blades, other than simply abstaining from doing it."
