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. Still, if you want to help out with this massive project 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?
