The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is an epic, open-ended single-player game where you create and play any kind of character you can imagine. Be the noble hero embarking on an epic quest, or an insidious thief rising to leadership of his guild. Be a malevolent sorcerer developing the ultimate spell of destruction, or a reverent healer searching for the cure to a plague. Your actions define your character, and your gameplay changes and evolves in response to your actions. Confront the assassins' guild, and they take out a contract on you. Impress them, and they try to recruit you instead. No two sagas are the same in the world of Morrowind.

Gameplay is further extended with the inclusion of The Elder Scrolls Construction Set (bundled with the game). This powerful tool is being used to create the entire game, and will also allow players to modify and add to Morrowind in any way they see fit. Change character or creature attributes and skills, introduce new weapons or dungeons into the game, or create entire new worlds to explore. Consequently mods for this game are everywhere, ranging in size from mere characters to fully themed packs! So should you ever want to expand on your gaming experience, be sure to scope out just a few of the amature modifications available and in existence!

3.7 coming soon!

Vanilla Fixes
* Fixed an issue with Mzahnch entrance, which wasn't properly attached to another mesh.

Morrowind Rebirth Fixes
* Fixed an issue where dialogue tells the player that: "Fort Buckmoth is the Imperial Legion's garrison for Redoran District. The fort lies south of Ald'ruhn, a short walk from Ald'ruhn's south gate.". The south gate doesn't exist in
Morrowind Rebirth.
* Fixed a door activator to "The Rift" which upon activation said "MR_Door_Altar" instead "Strange Altar".
* Arangaer, The Scribbled Scroll Balmora, will now react if you steal any of her items.
* Landscape fixes and improvements. Mainly in the Red Mountain Region.
* Fixed typos and inconsistencies in the book "Blacksmithing Tools".
* Added missing ownership flags for a bunch of items.
* 'Marelle' was set as male instead of female.
* Fixed pathgrids in Gnaar Mok.

WIP 11

Morrowind Rebirth Changes
* Overhauled content in traders chests. There's now a very low chance that traders will offer rare magic weapons and excellent weapons/armor such as glass/ebony etc. This should give you, the player, more reason to
visit traders every now and then.
* You should now succeed using Speechcraft actions at least 25 % of the time, although your actions won't be as impactful as in vanilla MW.
* A successful bribe of a 1000 gold will now give + 25 disposition instead of + 50.
* A successful bribe of 100 gold will now give a + 8 disposition instead of 15.
* A successful bribe of 10 gold will now give a + 2 disposition instead of 5.
* You will now need to be rank 'Warlock" in the Mages Guild to use Magic Circles. Thanks to 'fdm1' for the tweaked script!

WIP 10

Morrowind Rebirth Additions
* The Red Mountain overhaul is now out of BETA including fixes, improvements and small additions such as 6.th house shrines, hidden treasures, and other exciting stuff!
* Ald-Maaryon, a small outpost in the northern Ashlands. A place to restock or just take a quick brake from your adventures.
* Two new Bug Shields. These shields are only available for sale in Ald-Maaryon.
* Added more clutter in Gnaar Mok.

WIP 12

Am I the only person who noticed that this game is listed as a First Person Shooter while all the other Elder Scrolls games are listed as RPGs?

Morrowind is a full RPG, but was listed under First Person Shooter when it was released in 2002?

Yes... un modded save games should work with Rebirth. Going from one version build to another, may cause doubling in NPC's. But you can always use Wrye Bash!

Morrowind has always held more promise, with more mods, moddler resources, and more potential for improvement. I never cared that much for the Nerevarine Prophecy. But loved the variety in architecture, landscapes, and plants.

Oblivion was a very smooth game, very polished, and complete world. I had a hard time deciding what to add to the game outside of a small house, castle, or alternate beginning. Oblivion was very generic, offering the same buildings, ruins, and interiors over and over again. It wasn't until MorrOblivion and other mods that the new buildings were offered in the game. If fact, the game should be called Cyrodiil instead of Oblivion, and there should only be one gate instead of ten.

Skyrim offered a huge leap in graphics, offered the same smooth game play, finished world. I had to upgrade from XP to Win7 though, just to enjoy the game. The same with Fallout 3, which played very clunky on XP but enjoyable on Win7. Fallout Vegas was a much better game that the Fallout 3. Back to Skyrim, I really disliked the transition from exterior world to interior buildings, and felt like the black square behind the door was annoying. But overall, Skyrim has great game play, smooth graphics, and a very polished finished world.

Elder Scrolls Online, I felt cheated with the graphics. If they had used the Morrowind Engine with a Graphic Replacer... the game would have looked much better. Or if they had used the Oblivion or Skyrim Engine ... it would have had a more polished look. I enjoyed discovering the world of Tamriel, and all the different styles in architecture. But found the begining mission from Daggerfall to Betony, (or the Orc's version of it) very forced and heavy handed. I was hoping for more open ended, free travel, straight from the start of the game. And not be railroaded down a certain path until I reached a high level to free travel.

I haven't played Fallout 4 yet, but I'm guess I have to upgrade my computer from Win7 to Win10 with a better graphic's card. Just to enjoy the game. I havn't heard how it plays on older computers.

True, but Oblivion was at least a close second to it.
