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!

Which are the worst balance changes in Rebirth?

Greetings Friends. The time has come to unveil yet another update, and with that another massive amount of changes. This time I've spent most of my time building a more believable worldspace, so you can expect to see a LOT of changes in that department. Other noteworthy changes are that some spell effects are once again available for spellmaking/enchantning (with more being unlocked in a previous update), and that most vendors will now restock common ingredients. You guys have requested me to bring these features back, and I've listened. With this update comes also new optimized meshes for trees & ships, glow maps for light-sources, hundreds of minor graphical improvements, bugfixes, balance changes and more. I hope you enjoy 5.3!

[RELEASE] Morrowind Rebirth 5.3


Balmora Manor District

The manor district is now a bit more grand, which only seems fitting considering that House Hlaalu is supposed to be the wealthy house.

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.

You failed to mention quite a few shortcomings of Skyrim particularly it's highly unoriginal story, its lack of colour, and very dumbed down and rpg feature stripped gameplay. It was more like an action-adventure game than an RPG.

It's story was highly cliche and unoriginal, the nord land is boring full of a drunken warrior race there's nothing interesting about them at all. So much grey, white and brown dominating the colour scheme which looks so boring to the eyes.

Ok, it's been 3 years since that comment, and I actually got around re-replaying Oblivion in that time, and I must agree, Oblivion is better than Skyrim.
