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.
