One of the things that has consistently bothered me is how Nords view magic. Throughout ancient Nordic history there were storys of spellcasters giving support to Nord armies to bolster their army or to debilitate the enemy or to sow confusion among their foes. And seemingly out of nowhere they suddenly decided that magic was "for the weak and/or elves" and act like grade school boys afraid to get cooties from girls.

Lets start with how they can fix this.

Militarize the College of Winterhold. Theres zero reason the Jarl shouldnt throw his weight around with them. The place is full of master wizards of the like and they refuse to make use of it. The destruction magic there could help make a difference in the war against the Empire and possibly a war against the Thalmor as those armies use spellcasters and not using magic out of some stupid sense of honour is just a deliberate handicap that does nothing but put you at a huge disadvantage. Want to know why the Thalmor are so successful? THEY USE MAGIC IN THEIR ARMIES. Theyve normalized destruction mages in their armies and they get damn good results because you cant block a fucking bolt of lightning with some basic shield unless it has an enchantment. Okay, fine, lets just say they dont want to use destruction or conjuration.

Restoration. This school of magic is arguably the most respected and loved school in perhaps all of Tamriel. You always hear soldiers telling you how a student of restoration saved them from death and how they can aid existing injuries and recovery including illnesses. And its not like it would be hard to convince Collete Marence to enlist her services or fund her teaching. Shes obviously insecure about her work and if a Jarl came to her and flat out says he recognizes her preferred school and would like to help fund her teaching and research, she would probably be jump to the occasion because shes finally getting the recognition she feel she deserves.

Now what if they refuse to help the Stormcloaks? Easy. Bar them from getting food from the local shop and inn. The Jarl doesnt seem to realize just how much the mages rely on Winterhold for food and supplies. If he makes them a deal where either they help the Stormcloaks or they need to make long arduous trips to get food and supplies elsewhere and with the harsh environment of Winterhold and its surrounding areas, thats not an easy task. This would be grabbing the mages by the shorthairs and as far as I know theres no magic to create food.

Theres more but you get the idea. Bottom line, Nords need to get over this idiotic notion of "magic bad" and actually read their own history and utilize the element thats been beating their ass time and time again.
