Tamriel Rebuilt – Telvanni Isles Trailer

A rough but civilized landscape of islands, peninsulas, mountains, and ancient coves, the Telvanni Isles are home to the capital and largest cities of Great House Telvanni on the Morrowind mainland. Here you’ll find giant mushrooms and roots dominating the landscape, where the magics of Telvanni wizards have shaped the very land itself, forming massive forests where they’ve built their cities and towers away from the outside world, and uprooting ancient structures in their way.

Though this territory belongs to House Telvanni, they do share it with more than a few Imperial settlements, with the bastion of Imperial power, Firewatch, casting a wary gaze upon their xenophobic and magically-inclined neighbors. Home to numerous settlements, both large and small, the capital of the Telvanni, Port Telvannis, and a large array of both Dwemer and Daedric ruins, there’s a lot to explore and see in the Telvanni Isles, but there’s many dangers that lurk here, and not all of them come from careless old wizards.

The Telvanni Isles was one of the first regions to be released by Tamriel Rebuilt, going all the way back to Map 1 in 2007. This area is more or less complete, with dozens of quests for you to do, dungeons to fight through, and cities to explore. If you want to help out with this massive project though and contribute to one of the oldest continuously worked on mod projects in Morrowind’s history, why not head over to their website and join the team today?

Tamriel Rebuilt – Thirr River Valley Trailer

The Thirr River Valley is a lush and prosperous region that cuts right down the center of the Morrowind mainland, dividing the west from the east. Fertile plains and beautiful forests surround the deep and powerful Thirr River that cuts through the heart of Morrowind. One of the more populous regions of the mainland, the Thirr River Valley is divided between Great House Hlaalu and Great House Indoril, with the valiant Imperial fortress city of Old Ebonheart standing guard at the entrance. Along the western banks you’ll find numerous Hlaalu farms, villages, and plantations, including the wealthy Oran and Mundrethi plantations, as well as the small Hlaalu village of Indal-Ruhn. On the eastern side you’ll find the Indoril, clustered in their primary cities of power in the region, Roa Dyr and Almas Thirr, the Indoril fortress city. Small hamlets and Velothi villages also scatter the region, such as the industrious Velothi town of Vhul, and the farmer hamlet of Dondril. This area is well-settled, but still home to many shrines, ruins, and the occasional band of smugglers as they try and make their way past Imperial patrols into the heart of Morrowind. A region of such fertility and wealth isn’t without conflict, however, and the two Great Houses that inhabit this region would like nothing more than to solidify their power.

Tamriel Rebuilt released the Thirr River Valley as a part of the Tamriel Rebuilt Alpha, and updated the region with a new release in October of 2015. The Thirr River Valley Region is mostly complete exterior-wise, with some NPCs already in place and interiors currently being added to the major cities such as Old Ebonheart.

Tamriel Rebuilt – The Beauty of Almalexia Trailer

Almalexia, City of Light, City of Magic, Capital of Morrowind and home to the largest urban population center east of the Imperial City. Almalexia is a sprawling and massive city in the shape of a ring, with Mournhold, the capital’s inner city, at the heart of it all. Named after the Goddess of Love and the Lady of Mercy, this is the city of Almalexia’s home, residing in the central temple compound, a deity among mortals. Far from being just the seat of Almalexia’s throne and the capital of Morrowind, the city of Almalexia also serves as the center of Great House Indoril and their vast, though dwindling, domains.

A city of beauty, as well as religion, culture, and the arts, thousands flock to this great capital of the Dunmer. Pilgrims come from all parts of Morrowind to worship at Almalexia’s temples, students come to learn at the city’s grand schools, and citizens from all over the Empire come to trade, tour and explore this massive and ancient capital. From the sights and sounds of Almalexia’s busy waterways and canals, to the ringing of temple bells and merchant’s scales, and the beauty of Almalexia’s gardens and parks, this is one grand city that provides numerous views and scenic overlooks that are well worth a visit.

Tamriel Rebuilt released Mournhold as a part of the Tamriel Rebuilt Version 15.10 Release in October of 2015. The city of Almalexia is currently exteriors only, with no interiors, quests, or NPCs yet in place, and the Tamriel Rebuilt team has announced plans to scrape the current version of the city and start over with a fresh slate.

Tamriel Rebuilt – Fields of Helnim Trailer

The Fields of Helnim, a landscape of gently rolling hills and plains in eastern Morrowind, are a welcome reprieve for the weary traveler. Occupying a small stretch of land between the Boethian and Mephalain Mountain ranges, the Fields of Helnim are one of the more populated regions of eastern Morrowind, with a landscape settled by peaceful farms and plantations, with larger towns and cities dotting the coastline.

A predominately Telvanni controlled territory, the Fields of Helnim are named after the Imperial city of Helnim, the largest town in the region. It’s here in Helnim where one sees the rare mix of Imperial and Telvanni architecture side-by-side, as the city is composed of a number of districts, the Imperial districts with their stink of decay and poverty on one side, and the more affluent Telvanni districts on the other. Outside of this principal city though, there are a number of other Telvanni settlements, such as the port town of Marog that hangs from the cliffsides across the bay from Helnim, and the crossroads city of Tel Muthada, a town of towering heights in the middle of the relatively flat Fields of Helnim.

While this region offers the famous ruins of Kemel-Ze for the enterprising tourist, there’s few if any other major ruins to be found in this small oasis between the Boethian and Mephalain peaks, but it is far from a peaceful land. The weary traveler must be wary of the ever constant threat of bandits, rogues, and marauders that prey on the roadsides, ever eager to pick off easy targets.

Tamriel Rebuilt released the Fields of Helnim region as a part of Map 2 and included in the latest update back in August of 2014. This region is already pretty much completed, with interiors, dungeons, NPCs, and even quests in place.

Tamriel Rebuilt – Mephalain Mountains Trailer

The Mephalain Mountains of eastern Morrowind, a rugged and rough landscape of jagged mountain peaks, peaceful meandering streams, and shadowed valleys acts as the unofficial border between the lands of Great House Telvanni and Great House Indoril. Sparsely settled but home to more than a few ruins hugging the cliffside, the Mephalain Mountains are a rich and diverse environment, full of scenic beauty, from trickling waterfalls to hidden shrines and ancient chasms spanned by rickety old bridges.

The dominant settlement in the region is the city of Akamora, home to dozens of shops, residences, and taverns. Built right into the mountain-side, Akamora is best known for its resounding beauty and quaint cliffside streets. Far from the only settlement though, mountaintop Indoril towers and manors can be found spread through out the entire region, often offering superb views of the surrounding areas. Not just a region of scenic views, however, the Mephalain Mountains are home to a number of dangerous elements, from roadside bandits to Daedric cultists, and many mysteries lurk in the hidden valleys of this seemingly peaceful mountain range. The ancient ruins of the city of Dun Akafell are rumored to be found here, and the Valley of Mephala lies hidden in a perpetual veil of fog and shadow, full of unpleasant dangers for any who would disturb the Queen of Murder.

Tamriel Rebuilt released the Mephalain Mountains region as a part of Map 3 and included in the latest update back in August of 2014. This region is already pretty much completed, with interiors, dungeons, NPCs, and even a few quests in place.

Morrowind Modding Interviews – Haplo, Head of Tamriel Rebuilt

In this week’s episode of Morrowind Modding Interviews, we’re talking with Haplo, the head of Tamriel Rebuilt and one of the early members of the project.

During the course of this interview we cover an absolute ton of topics related to Tamriel Rebuilt, from the lore surrounding the Great Houses, particularly Great House Indoril and Great House Dres, to the claims and development system of Tamriel Rebuilt and the 13-year history of the project, including the schism between Tamriel Rebuilt and Silgrad Tower.

We also go over what happened to Almalexia, when we might expect a semi-finished release of Tamriel Rebuilt, and the modding community at large. There’s all of that and much more covered in this fairly detailed (and definitely quite long) interview including some 30+ minutes of unique Tamriel Rebuilt footage.

Tamriel Rebuilt – The Inlet Bog Trailer

In central eastern Morrowind, along the coast of the Inner Sea, lies the Inlet Bog, a realm of dark swamps, rivers and lakes that have long resisted the encroachment of civilization. Sitting at a crossroads between the cities of Old Ebonheart, Helnim, Akamora and Almalexia, this region is surprisingly sparse in population, and home to a variety of ne’er-do-wells, from common bandits to necromancers, cultists, and smugglers profiting off the numerous ruins in the area.

The Inlet Bog is home to only one major population center of any kind, the small and rather impoverished village of Darnim, sitting along the eastern coast, an assortment of shacks and dock pillings that give off the vague reassurance of civilization. Aside from this lone village, a number of hermits, small-time farmers, and other isolationist sorts muck out a living in the murky perpetual fog that hangs in the air, always aware of the dangers that lurk just out of sight. From swamp beast to necromancer, there’s plenty to fear along the half-sunken roads of the Inlet Bog…

Tamriel Rebuilt released the Inlet Bog region as a part of Map 3 and included it in the latest update back in August of 2014. This region is already pretty much completed, with interiors, dungeons, NPCs, and unique dialogue already in place.

Tamriel Rebuilt – Armun Ashlands Trailer

The Armun Ashlands of the Morrowind mainland is a desolate wasteland, devoid of almost all life, and stretching from the Roth Roryn region deep down into south central Morrowind. Some say the ashlands are growing, encroaching upon the fertile territory of the Thirr River Valley, a wave of ash just waiting to spill over into the deep currents of the Thirr river. The Armun Ashlands is a dangerous land to travel, many a weary traveler has met their end trying to span this vast and unforgiving realm. Ancient ruins can also be found, half-buried in the ash, remnants of past civilizations that have fallen to the Armun’s persistent encroachment. This territory is home to only one settlement of any notable size, the small Hlaalu town of Ald Erfoud, an oasis for tired travelers trying to get to the city of Kragenmar in the Othreleth Valley of southern Morrowind. Though hardly the only population in the midst of these wastes, the Armun Ashlanders can also be found camping along this harsh landscape, making by as they have for generations.

Tamriel Rebuilt released the Armun Ashlands region as part of the Tamriel Rebuilt Alpha back in August of 2014.
