Morrowind Modding Madness 2016 – A Team Based Modding Competition

Four weeks, four categories, four mods, only one team of modders will rise up to claim the throne as the ultimate modding champions of 2016! This is Morrowind Modding Madness, a month long modding competition starting December 1st and going through the end of the year where modders form teams, compete and vanquish challenges, and rise through the ranks to become the ultimate modding champions as we put a close on the year of 2016 with all the sweet prizes that entails!

This has been a fantastic year so far for the Morrowind modding community, with an estimated 500 new Morrowind mods being released this year alone. So this December, to end things on a bang, we’re announcing Morrowind Modding Madness, a big modding competition where you have to form teams with at least one other modder and meet the weekly challenge of designing, building, and releasing a full mod every week. This won’t be an easy modding competition, you’ll need to select your teammates carefully and collaborate on your strengths to make it to the end of the competition and win the top prize.

Now a full list of competition details is available at one of the following locations, and you can also register your modding teams while you’re there, but remember to make sure they know they’re on your team! A modding team can be composed of between two and four modders! Best of luck to all contestants, the competition officially starts on December 1st!

For this week’s interview, we’re talking with Worsas and Roerich from Skyrim – Home of the Nords about a number of topics related to the ambitious and massive province mod that seeks to add the entire province of Skyrim to the gameworld of Morrowind. Over the course of this interview, we talk a lot about the design and style of the Reach, the regions of Vorndgad Forest and the Druadach Highlands, as well as a lot of the lore, conflicts, and history of this massive swath of western Skyrim. We also discuss when we might see a new release for the project, and we talk a bit about the new cooperation between Project Tamriel and Tamriel Rebuilt.
