Orsinium roleplay dilemma

Hey!
I didn't start Orsinium storyline yet and I have many thing to do before, but I don't know If I should create an orc character and do it for better roleplay experience or I can do it on my belowed main, who will do every other expansions and he is an argonian from Ebonheart Pact. Don't spoil me story please, just tell me If I will have good experience as not orsimer. I know that most people did it as other races, but I heard it's really good expansion so I'm asking.

    Yes you can do it with an argonian and enjoy it. Story is written in such a way that characters from everywhere in Tamriel fit in.

    Shardan,

    As Ruusa says, the quests and storyline come about in such a way that playing an outsider totally works. However, it is about your personal enjoyment. Have you always wanted to have an orsimer character? Do you feel you might enjoy the Orsinium content more by playing an orsimer hero as you experience it? Or will you get just as much enjoyment playing it with your argonian?

    These are all things to consider as you prepare to dive into the content.

    My Breton had a fine experience as someone who is used to being the hero who comes in and tries to help wherever she goes, but she's treated as an outsider by many in the Orc clans. Like Storymaster said, unless you specifically want the experience of being an Orc "coming home" to Orc lands, you'll be fine with your main character treating it as part of his overall journey.

    Even as an Orc you get treated as an outlander so it doesn't really matter.

    Well, there is one quest where being an Orc can change things.

    Thanks guys for answers. I was considering create an orsimer, but when I play as other character than my main, I don't enjoy it that much. Also I want to do Cadwell's silver and gold, before Clockwork City release and I don't have time to level new character. I'll stick to my main, beacause I like to have one hero and I don't like to experience same adventures over and over again with different characters, I have it with every RPGs.
