Hey Sharon. Sorry--I noticed that I'd missed a post of yours and wanted to respond! I did finally get past that part in the game with some console codes--I don't know what I would do if it weren't for the console and these games sometimes, I swear!
btw---doing good but have finished the vampire quests (the regular ones and the ones for the Aundae clan) and so I did the quest to cure the vampirism and now I'm good ol' me again. LOL It was fun but you never really got to bite someone's neck like in Oblivion--you just had a spell that would take the health out of your "victims". It's weird too because like you said they are all powerful, but going around Morrowind, no one was really that afraid of me! They were mostly like, "Get out of here, we don't like your kind..." or something similar, so I ended up feeling sort of isolated because I couldn't really intereact with the NPCs. I'm hoping that the DLC Dawnguard for Skyrim will be alot better as far as the whole vampire experience, and I think it's coming out later this month so I'm psyched!
Let's see...well as far as Morrowind I've done all of the quests for each House (Redoran, Hlaalu, Telvanni) and belong to each House and have my own home from those quests,(there is a mod that allows you to join all three houses, so as soon as I found that, that's what I did!) I'm the Arch-mage of the Mage's Guild, and am doing the Morag Tong quests now. I almost feel bad saying it but it's kind of fun to sneak around killing people. Thank God they're just make-belive though--I could never do it for real!
I guess my style is to sort of level up as much as I can, then buy the best armor and weapons (or sometimes I'll find a powerful weapon on the Morrowind wiki page and put it into my game using the console--cheating yes, but what the heck) then I usually decide on a guild or House to join and jump into the quests. I LOVE doing quests and I also love levitating when I travel as I do them, so it's fun to give myself ALOT of rising force potions in the console and then take off over the mountains! Whoo-hoo! lol! I just love that.
Hope that you're having fun with your game too and that you've gotten all the goodies you want to get. Maybe my dunmer adventurer will run into you one of these days.
PS Yes, Skyrim is awesome, Skyrim next is a great motto!
