In case anyone is interested, along with the efforts that have been running to port Morrowind into the Skyrim engine, there is also a group that's been improving on, and expanding the original Morrowind to include the land masses surrounding Vvardenfell (where Morrowind is found) through the Tamriel Rebuilt effort. You can read about it here: https://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org

An example of work connected with the effort was just released, a mod with the city of Karthwasten, pretty cool stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=5&v=ySvnGyFItn0

Still consumed by Morrowind and re-living the joys of wandering around, completely lost, searching for that elusive location of a particular tomb or cave !!

Totally Riotous rotfl rotfl

I do SO love this game 👍

Oh, I'll be playing it for months, maybe even years yet, Marian !!

I play so slowly and only for short-ish sessions at a time. Plus there is that awful urge to do every quest and investigate every tomb and cave shame

Definitely out of control, eh ?? lol

I do love Morrowind. I played it earlier this year and enjoyed it just as much as always. Of course it helps that I know where a lot of the good loot is hidden. The dungeons and ruins in Morrowind are so much better than the ones in Oblivion and Skyrim. They aren't nearly as generic. And there's nothing better than filling those Grand Soul Gems and making stuff.

Do you always play a "complete" game when you re-play, hagatha ??

(Mind boggling if you do !! praise)

By "complete" I mean inclusive of all expansions - which is how I attempt it yes

I usually do play with the expansions but I don't even try to complete all the quests. I'll pick a faction and run with it.

I am a fast player, though, since I always play sneak/archer/one-handed and that level you up faster than just about anything.

Maybe I should try playing that way myself, next time !!
I would probably get through the game much faster and yet not lose any of the enjoyment 😬

I think my last game of Morrowind took about a month, but that's not difficult for a retired person. Plus, I remember where everything is once I get into the game.

I've never managed to get through an RPG in a month lol

[Even using God Mode for the most difficult bits !!]

I'm just not a good enough RPG player .... although I do very much enjoy my attempts wink

Sneak 100 + Archery 100 + Enchanted Deadric bow = dead enemies. Fast. Or Sneak 100 + One-handed 100 + Enchanted sword with Absorb Health = dead enemies.

I still really enjoy all of these games. I even got my hubby all set up on Oblivion but I think he's too confused about character creation to start playing. It may not ever be his thing anyway, though he's talked about it for years.

I played over half of Oblivion but began to feel it was getting too "same-ish" everywhere I went and so eventually stopped playing it.
But I will probably have another go at some time 😬

Totally understandable Mad. Oblivion is sort of an exercise in re-usability. Bethesda was a bit shameless in the way they duplicated the dungeons and Elvin ruins. There's also an awful lot of scavenger hunt style quests. All that said, I still like to give it a run through now and again. smile

I enjoy Oblivion for a few reasons. It's easy to get into and easy to level up. It's colourful compared to the others. Sean Bean. The assassin's guild and my lovely undead horse. I love all the houses, always buy all of them, and fully furnish them. Did I mention Sean Bean?

My favorite character quote from Oblivion when your sneak is at 100% and your all enchanted up beyond that: After shooting an NPC square in the eye with an arrow while sneaking, NPC, "Huh, must have been the wind" lol

I did notice your mention of Sean Bean, hagatha !! lol

But, TM, as I'm never likely to reach such dizzy heights with character stats I probably won't ever get to hear that SO cool dialogue laugh

I don't recall that quote, but it's wickedly funny.

You've got to love Sean Bean. I mean, pretty much every character he plays ends up dead. It's almost like he's been type cast as the noble dead guy.

And of course I forgot Patrick Stewart, an actor whose voice is so distinctive I realized it was him immediately.
