Morrowind Feature

The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.

Plot Related

Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they turned against each other in the Battle of the Red Mountain, and House Dagoth was crushed and scattered. However, Dagoth re-awakened later and set up base in the crater citadels of Red Mountain, spreading his influence and seeking to cast down the current deities and eventually conquer all Tamriel. The central storyline of Morrowind revolves around the reincarnation of Indoril Nerevar, referred to as "The Nerevarine", who has been prophesied to oppose and defeat the malevolent Dagoth Ur and his followers, encompassed in a faction named "The Sixth House".

The events take place on Vvardenfell, an island in the Dunmer province of Morrowind. The game environment is large and richly detailed, with real-time weather effects, day and night cycle, and a great variety of plant and animal life.

Towns, villages, cities of Vvardenfell. The developers, rather than choosing the common Medieval European setting of fantasy games, took elements from Egyptian, early Japanese, and Middle Eastern cultures.

Amazing artwork! I love Morrowind though I haven't played it in months. This feature is extremely well made and very inclusive.

I played it a year ago... maybe it's time to install it again. With the new overhaul file. :)

Thank you!

What overhaul file? I only have it for the X-box.
helice93 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah okay. I have it for the PC, and there is a large compilation of third party add-ons, mostly for improving the graphics.
