Return to the magical Island of Vvardenfell once more in this huge overhaul, Morrowind Rebirth. Find new enemies to fight, new exciting areas to explore, access new weapons and a brave new world to explore. Whatever you do, you'll be sure to find something new and interesting in nearly every corner of Vvardenfell.
A very messy changelog with a lot of the changes missing, I guess it's better than nothing, right? I will continue to update and improve it as time goes by.

- Long Blade, Short Blade, Blunt, Spear & Marksman: A slight nerf in progression rate.
* Some changes to artifacts and magic items.
