How To Enjoy Morrowind

For twicefivemiles in response to the post Where I Fail at the Elder Scrolls.

    Morrowind is an RPGame, and it’s all about RP’ing. And no I don’t mean like “OMG i shipp fargoth and arrille and theyy have a house in suran, blah blah blah” (I have a feeling I’m going to regret saying that), but really being your character. Smelling the grass and the sea air in the Ascadian Isles Region. Imagining the conversation you’re having with an NPC. Having a moral code or personality that your character sticks to, even if you don’t necessarily agree. I believe Morrowind is the most immersive game in the Elder Scroll series ever, despite the dated graphics, clumsy combat, and lifeless NPCs. Largely in part to the lack of Map Fast Travel and, more importantly, a Quest Compass.

     Morrowind doesn’t hold your hand through every quest. And NPC might tell you the need you to go to the other side of the island and give you directions and landmarks. And that’s it. You really have to listen to what people are telling you. Maybe even ask for directions along the way. The road signs are relevant. When you’re just following a compass, you pay less attention to the world around you. I had this problem with GTA IV (I followed the GPS everywhere and barely knew my way around the city like I do in, say, GTA III because I was so dependent on it). The Quest Compass works against the old adage (and, to a lesser extent, a Miley Cyrus song) “It’s not the destination, but the journey that is important”. That said, once you find your destination, you had better be prepared. Most enemies and areas are not scaled to your level, so there are some things you just can’t do until you’re strong enough. And I feel it drives you to get better. Or not. You can do whatever you want. That’s the beauty of the game.

I’m going to stop now before this gets away from me and becomes “This Is Why I Love Morrowind”. Hopefully this helps you enjoy the game at least a fraction as much as I do. And remember - 

Walk with virtue, Outlander.

Just saw The Dark Knight Rises

When did Sean Connery get so buff?

I miss my beard already …

Go Flyers!

I don’t know what’s more disturbing

Mutant rabbits that lay eggs that people eat, zombie Jesus, or lagging so bad that you don’t spawn for three days.

I need to find a balance between my musical and visual art.

I just get in these moods and focus heavily on one while neglecting the other.

And I know no one cares about this, I just need to post it and see it in text so I’ll actually do it. So please feel free to entirely disregard this post. No one will blame you.
