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. 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?
