Morrowind Publisher Bethesda Softworks Developer ZeniMax Online Studios Release Date June 6, Price USD
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is an open-world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the third installment in the Elder Scrolls series, following 's The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall , and was released in for Microsoft Windows and Xbox.
The main story takes place on Vvardenfell, an island in the Dunmer Dark Elf province of Morrowind, part of the continent of Tamriel.
The central quests concern the demigod Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. Morrowind was designed with an open-ended, freeform style of gameplay in mind, with less of an emphasis on the main plot than its predecessors. This choice received mixed reactions, though such feelings were tempered by reviewers' appreciation of Morrowind ' s expansive, detailed game world.
Morrowind achieved critical and commercial success, winning various awards including Game of the Year and selling over four million copies worldwide by The game spawned two expansion packs : Tribunal and Bloodmoon. Both were repackaged into a full set along with several minor add-ons and titled Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition , which was released in October It requires an installation of the original game, as it uses the Bethesda game data files, and supports many third-party mods.
Morrowind was followed by The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion in Morrowind begins with the player's character, having been imprisoned, arriving in Morrowind by boat to be pardoned. This is a common introductory segment throughout the main installments of the series.
A tutorial depicting the prisoner's release moves the player through the process of character creation. These affect the player's starting attributes , skills , and abilities. The player then determines their class in one of three ways: Picking from a class list, randomly generating a class via questions, or creating a custom class themselves. The player character's proficiency with a skill is increased through practice, training, and study. Practice involves performing the specific actions associated with a given skill, which gradually raises the character's proficiency in that skill.
Raising weapon skills requires striking an enemy with the appropriate weapon; raising armor skills requires being struck while wearing the appropriate type of armor; etc. Training involves paying cash to non-player characters NPCs in exchange for immediate proficiency increases in that skill.
Study requires reading books found in the game, some of which will immediately raise a skill when read. Weaponry skills affect the character's chance to hit. Armor skills affect the defensive strength of the armor.
Other skills affect proficiency in other actions such as potion-making, running, lockpicking, etc. Morrowind , like its predecessor Daggerfall , makes a distinction between "attributes" and "skills"; skills being those individual proficiencies in particular schools of battle or with particular armor classes, and attributes being broader proficiencies, such as "strength" and "endurance", which are either tied to important features unconnected to any skill, health , evasion chance, etc.
or improve the efficiency of a wide variety of skills. Strength, for example, improves the damage of any physical blow dealt by the player character.
Attributes, however, are improved only when the player levels up. The player levels up their character by gaining levels in ten pre-determined skills, listed as "major" and "minor" skills. Each time the player levels up their character, they can select three attributes to augment as well. The player is better able to augment attributes related to their skill set, as each level gained in a particular skill adds to the multiplier by which the skill's governing attribute is augmented.
The simplest melee attack is a chop action. The slightly more complex slash and thrust attacks are performed by clicking in unison with tapping a directional key,  though by turning on the "always use best attack" option, players can eliminate the moving element, freeing them to focus on the combat. A melee weapon's damage potential is rated for each of these attacks.
Reviewers found little value in choosing between the three types of attacks for most weapons and recommended the "always use best attack" option. In the game's original release, the player was given no indication of the amount of health left in their enemies and no indication of the strength of the player's attacks.
Reviewers took the absence badly, wishing for more visible feedback. Morrowind , following the tradition established by its predecessors in The Elder Scrolls series,  is a free-form world, with few constricting boundaries on the player's actions. From the beginning of the game, players are put in a world where they are left to roam, steal, quest, and explore, without necessarily following the main quest.
We would never have a [ The Elder Scrolls ] role-playing game force you to be a certain character or go down a certain path. To allow for this behavior, Morrowind , in addition to creating an extensive main quest, provides detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses, in addition to side-quests found by exploration. There are, in the words of critic Craig Lindley, "a very specific set of central plot points within this main plot.
But the plot points are partially ordered: seven high-level tasks must be completed, but their constituent sub-tasks can be accomplished in any order, and this is repeated for the sub-tasks involved in those sub-tasks.
Ken Rolston later stated that the main quest might have been presented with greater force, in the style of the game's successor, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion , without losing the free-form design of the series, but such concerns were not addressed before Morrowind ' s release. While Morrowind contains many quests and storylines, the central plot revolves around The Tribunal, a triumvirate of god-like beings ruling over Morrowind, and their struggle against a former ally, the demigod Dagoth Ur and his Sixth House — a cult of followers stretching out from Red Mountain, the volcanic center of Vvardenfell, the island on which the game is set.
Dagoth Ur has used the Heart of Lorkhan, an artifact of great power, to make himself immortal and now seeks to drive the Imperial Legion occupiers from Morrowind using his network of spies, as well as Akulakhan, an enormous mechanical golem powered by the Heart of Lorkhan.
After a storm and a strange dream vision, the player character PC begins in a town called Seyda Neen, fresh off a boat from a mainland prison, freed by the string-pulling of the current ruler of the Tamrielic Empire, Emperor Uriel Septim VII. The PC is given the task of meeting Caius Cosades, a member of the Blades, a secret group of spies and agents working for the Emperor and the Empire. Cosades inducts the player into the Blades on the Emperor's orders and sets the player on various quests to uncover the mysterious disappearances and revelations that the citizens of Vvardenfell have experienced, particularly the Sixth House and the Ashlander prophecies of the Nerevarine.
It is later revealed that the induction under Cosades, and the player's release from prison, was due to the Emperor's suspicion that the player might be the Nerevarine — a reincarnation of the legendary Dunmer hero Indoril Nerevar — or at least someone who would make a convincing impostor to use for political gain. The PC is tasked with uncovering the prophecies regarding the Nerevarine and to fulfill them to finally defeat Dagoth Ur and his Sixth House cult.
Prophecies from the nomadic Dunmer people living in the Ashlands, the Ashlanders, predict that Nerevar's incarnate will fulfill a set of seven prophecies. The first two prophecies are that the Nerevarine will be born on a certain day to uncertain parents, and will be immune to Corprus disease, a Divine disease created by Dagoth Ur.
The player has already fulfilled the first, and hence was chosen for the task. The player becomes immune to Corprus by contracting the disease and surviving an experimental cure. Fulfilling these, the player seeks to complete the third prophecy, a test to find the Moon-and-Star also called One-Clan-Under-Moon-And-Star , the symbolic ring originally worn by Nerevar, which has the power to instantly kill anyone, apart from himself and by extension, the Nerevarine , who tries to wear it.
Upon finding and equipping the ring, the player receives a vision from Azura, the ancient Daedric Prince of the Dawn and Dusk, who confirms that the player is Nerevar's incarnate. The Nerevarine completes the fourth and fifth trials, which are to rally the Great Houses of the Dunmer and Ashlanders of Vvardenfell under one banner. After receiving the support and being declared "Hortator" by every Great House and "Nerevarine" by all nomadic Ashlander tribes, the player is officially, albeit reluctantly, called "Nerevarine" by the Tribunal Temple, who normally persecute anyone who claims to be the Nerevarine and sentences them to death.
The Nerevarine is invited to the palace of the poet god-king Vivec, one of the three deities that form the basis of Morrowind's religion, known as the Tribunal, to discuss the assault on Dagoth Ur's stronghold in the heart of Red Mountain. Vivec presents the player with the gauntlet 'Wraithguard', an ancient Dwemer artifact that allows the use of the tools Sunder and Keening.
These ancient weapons were created by the Dwemer to tap into the power of the fabled Heart of Lorkhan, which they found beneath Red Mountain - and these same tools have been used by the Tribunal and Dagoth Ur to reach their god-like status. The tools can, however, also destroy the fabled Heart of Lorkhan, but without having the Wraithguard equipped, they will deal a fatal blow to whoever wields them.
The player travels into Red Mountain to Dagoth Ur's citadel. After talking with Dagoth Ur, who attempts to sway the player to his side with the claim that he is merely following Nerevar's final orders, the player and Dagoth Ur fight.
Besting Dagoth Ur, the Nerevarine soon discovers that while the Heart of Lorkhan is still intact, Dagoth Ur remains immortal and he soon returns from death. Making his way to the very heart of the mountain, the Nerevarine finds the Heart of Lorkhan and destroys it, severing Dagoth Ur from his power and ultimately killing him.
Akulakhan's Chamber, where Lorkhan's heart resided, is destroyed in the process as the cavern collapses, and in turn, Red Mountain is cleared of blight and The Sixth House falls. Upon escaping from the chamber, the Nerevarine is congratulated by Azura, who comes to reward the player's efforts of fulfilling the prophecy. The game does not end upon the completion of the main quest, but the game world Vvardenfell is affected in many different ways.
The Blight Storms cease to plague the land, and the weak-minded followers of the Sixth House are reawakened, remembering nothing of their ordeal. The Dreamers who harassed the Nerevarine fall silent, and the Nerevarine becomes widely known as the savior of Vvardenfell. The quintessential consequence of defeating Dagoth Ur was the destruction of the Heart of Lorkhan. Due to their immortality linked to the heart, Vivec and the Tribunal become mortal again, leaving Vivec's future in question and up to the player to determine his fate.
The loss of divinity among the Tribunal is the main plot point of the game's first expansion, Tribunal. Morrowind takes place on Vvardenfell, an island in the Dunmer-dominated province of Morrowind, far from the typically European-inspired lands to the west and south depicted in Daggerfall and Arena. Along with graphical improvements , one of the most apparent differences between Morrowind and the earlier games in the series is that Morrowind takes place in a much smaller area than the previous games.
While Arena featured the entirety of Tamriel as an explorable area, and Daggerfall featured sizeable portions of two provinces of Tamriel, Hammerfell, and High Rock, Morrowind includes only the "relatively small" island of Vvardenfell within the province of Morrowind. Whereas Daggerfall and Arena ' s dungeons were randomly generated, each area in Morrowind was specifically detailed, and each item individually placed.
As a result, reviewers were generally impressed with the game world's variety, as this maintained the perception of an "enormous" game-world. Morrowind ' s developers, rather than basing the culture of Morrowind onto the typical Medieval European setting of fantasy games, chose a more eclectic route, taking elements from African cultures , specifically Ancient Egyptian , but also early Japanese , and Middle Eastern cultures.
While admitting some elements of the partially medieval Imperial culture more typical of fantasy to retain familiarity with the earlier installments of the series, Morrowind ' s Dark Elven setting "opened huge new avenues for creating cultures and sites that are not traditionally seen in a fantasy setting".
The game has over books not counting spell scrolls. One particular compilation of the text was 1, sheets of 8. To him, the in-game literature and its integration within the game were Morrowind ' s "most original and lasting contribution to the history of games", one that would place it beside Planescape: Torment as one of the most important games of all time.
The game has a great deal of geographic variation in climate, flora, and, to some extent, fauna as well. Besides that, there is also some variety in politics and culture among the in-game populations, the combination of which adds to the uniqueness of different parts of the island. On top of that, there is an archaeological aspect to the game, which gives a certain degree of depth to the story as well as the option for further exploration. The in-game exploration is chiefly based on walking and running; however, there are instances when swimming and sometimes levitation is involved.
Transportation of other kinds, such as teleportation, and traveling by boat or on the back of giant flea-like creatures called silt striders, is available for a fee when moving between the various settlements on Vvardenfell as a method of fast travel. A third title in the Elder Scrolls series was first conceived during the development of Daggerfall , though it was initially to be set in the Summerset Isles and called Tribunal.
Following the release of Daggerfall , it was set up around an SVGA version of XnGine , which Bethesda later used in Battlespire , and set in the province of Morrowind. The game was "much closer to Daggerfall in scope", encompassing the whole province of Morrowind, rather than the isle of Vvardenfell, and allowing the player to join all five Dunmer Great Houses.
The blight was conceived as a dynamic force, progressively expanding and destroying cities in its wake. It was finally decided that the scope of the original design was too grand given the technology current at the time. The completion of Redguard in led to a return to the Morrowind project, as the developers felt a yearning in their audience to return to the classically epic forms of the earlier titles. Finding that the gaps between their technical capacities and those of rival companies had grown in the interim, Bethesda sought to revitalize itself and return to the forefront of the industry,  an effort spearheaded by project leader Todd Howard.
The scale of the game was much reduced from the earlier concept, focusing primarily on Dagoth Ur and a smaller area of land.
