Themes

After some serious consideration, Tamriel Rebuilt has decided that future releases will not be based on our development maps as they were initially created--and as they have existed for the past several years--but instead will each be designed around a certain theme, generally one of the five Great Houses. With three releases already out, there are five more remaining.

After some serious consideration, Tamriel Rebuilt has
decided that future releases will not be based on our development maps
as they were initially created--and as they have existed for the past
several years--but instead will each be designed around a certain theme,
generally one of the five Great Houses. With 3 releases already out,
there are 5 more remaining. They are as follows:


Sacred East - Our next area of the mainland, the highlight of which will
be the Dunmer holy city of Necrom, with its own unique architecture,
where the dead are prepared for burial. It also includes many cities of
House Indoril, the most religious of the Great Houses, a Great House not
featured in the original game.


Almalexia - Containing the rest of House Indoril's holdings, this
release will center on the city of Almalexia, the largest city in
Morrowind. Most of you have already been there, in fact: the innermost
part of Almalexia is the capitol, Mournhold, which is the setting of
Tribunal. Like all of TR's cities, it is a sight to behold.


Heartland - Heartland contains a bit of every sort of
region Morrowind has to offer: the fertile Thirr River Valley mirrors
the Ascadian Isles; Roth Roryn, a craggy mountain region; and the Armun
Ashlands--by far the largest ashlands on the mainland. It also includes
many important cities, such as Old Ebonheart--the largest Imperial
presence in the province--and two major Hlaalu cities: Andothren, built
around a waterfall, and Kragenmoor, a trading city on the border of
Morrowind.


Véloth - Most members of Great House Redoran make their home in Véloth,
the mountainous, ashy region in the west of Morrowind. This will include
almost all of House Redoran's settlements, such as the great Baan Malur
in the north and Kartúr in the south, and Kogotél, a city built around
an ancient Velothi monastery.


Narsis - The city of Narsis is the capital of House Hlaalu and one of
the largest cities in the province of Morrowind. Built on the winding
Upper Thirr, it is in the very far south of Morrowind. This release will
also include several other Hlaalu cities, as well as two isolated
Redoran forts.


Dres - The last release, this will contain all of House Dres' land
holdings, and will include no other Great Houses. House Dres is the most
traditional and by far the most xenophobic of the six Great Houses,
keeping slaves in great numbers and adhering strictly to an ancient form
of the Dunmeri faith. Though it remains a long way off, we promise that
it will be among our most impressive releases. The Dres will also have
their own completely-new architecture. Here is a map showing the largely-final borders for these releases. Solid red lines depict the original (read: old) six maps.

I'm glad that the Team is still working on Tamriel Rebuilt ... and the next release Almalexia and Heartland! But if the land is already hard-coded like in Silgrad Tower and Blacklight City ... then why not go ahead and release the whole landmass. And included buildings and NPC's in future releases ... that way the moddling community can have fun playing around with it.

In Veloth - will this include Silgrad Tower and Blacklight City??? It has been released for several years now, so why not use it to speed up the production time in Heartland and Veloth landmasses! Tamriel Rebuilt Project has been going on and off development since 2002, and with the release of ESO this 4-4-14 it is time to get things released.
