Our dwemer ruins will mostly only be found in the velothi mountains. Because our version of The Reach was already cramped with many ethinities and ruins of most different past cultures when TES V came out, it didn't really seem reasonable to slam the dwemer into it.

Indeed, besides Skyrim's attitude of scattering around dwemer ruins everywhere was pretty much nonsense in the first place.
Actually, I am personally voting against Dwemer "outposts" in the Gold Coast, but if that's what you all want I'll pass. We could have ruins in western and maybe northern Cyrodiil though.

I don't think the GC is the right place to have Dwemer ruins. As I said earlier, Valus Mountains and Colovian Highlands near the borders with Morrowind and Hammerfell.

I would be against scattering dwemer ruin around too. I do not think that having a single one somewhere would be bad though.
Tarius: I have now conquered the galaxy twice and am working on a third. Once thats out of me, I will be back to work.
TDF: Which game is that(I assume its a game and not real life)
The Khan: If it was real life, we would know about it. And I dont think he means this Galaxy.
Tarius: Yes, I really lead a secret double life where I am a galactic overlord.

I'm not a fan of including any Dwemeri ruins in Cyrodiil. The only reason we have from lore for them even being in Cyrodiil is that it happened to be in the way as the Rourken were making the exodus to Volenfell. There's an urgency to get there because they see it as defining who they are as a group, they're literally on a mission so it doesn't make a lot of sense for them to slow themselves down building an underground complex, just for the sake resting, along the way.

Bordering ruins are a different thing though I suppose. The issues I have with them is that they've been done to death in Morrowind already and I'm not sure what they will be adding to the mod. If we opt for Dwemeri ruins in P:C then I'd prefer for them to be in the east only (helps get around the need for a new Rourken Dwemeri set).

As I mentioned before if SHotN does a Rourken set, then we might as well use it if we can. I'd personally like to see a slightly different take on that design.

I used to walk when I could ride, then I took an arrow to the knee.

Madness? THIS IS THE SHIVERING ISLES!!!...Of course it's madness!!

Again I dont care either way, there is a strong reason for and against using them in Cyrodiil. I do agree that if they are used it should be sparingly and not in the GC at all.

They had just the right amount of Dwemer ruins. If the game was at the same scale as Daggerfall. :P
