    A little update :

    I'm now at level 20 :bounce:

    I've found a few parts of a Dreugh armor ( Cuirass & Helmet ) but for the rest I'm still using my Orcish armor.

    I've got a nice Dhaedric Claymore but it's way too heavy ( 80 :dead: ) & I've replaced it with the Umbra Sword ( © ;) ).

    Right now, I'm roaming around Tel Fyr which has to be one of the nicest areas in the game :grinthumb

    After changing motherboards/processors etc. I seem to have lost my save games. Guess I'll have to start from scratch again :(
    Oh well. Got all the petty little missions to do over. At least this time I can try to refrain from killing an entire guild of fighters in one area to get glass armor ;)

    Since you have to start over, might as well do it right.;)

    The character creation pahse is much more important that I had first thought. Try out GameFAQs & do a search on Morrowind. I've found some very good FAQs there, including one on Character Creation alone.

    There's also a tweaking FAQ but I thought it was pretty incompleye. The best Tweak Guide I've found on the net is still this one -> Morrowind Tweak Guide Thread

    I haven't looked at the other FAQs ( Main Quest FAQ? Fighters Guild FAQ, etc... ) as I suspect they might contain spoilers.

    Thanks for that Didou. I have Morrowind installed on my work laptop but I'm waiting for the replacement GF4Go (replacing the GF2Go that Dell sent by mistake) before settling down to playing a lot of that game while travelling for work.

    Man that must be nice, I hope I can get a job where I can get a sweet laptop and play games on it when I travel.

    The American Dream...

    Mine, too...

    Heheheh I can imagine it now: Alienware Area 51-M, Sennheiser HD600 headphones, and 30 spare batteries on the way to a far away land, fragging away in UT2k3...

    Yeah, sounds like me.

    How many hours have you put into this game thus far?

    The most I ever put into a game was about 40 and that wasn't even 1/8 of the way throught it yet. That was Pool of Radiance, and that game rocked. It sucks I had to format and lost everything, I forgot to back that up. So I never got back into it.

    I can't tell you how many hours I put into it. I stopped counting a long time ago.:eek:

    If I lost my savegames, I'd simply burn the CD.;)

    Another update :

    Now at level 45 !!!

    & no I didn't kill an Ordinator for that armor ;)

    I've also got the Add-On, TES3 : Tribunal.

    It modifies & simplifies the Journal system & you can also notes on the local map by double-clicking but I haven't started the extra quest yet. You can start the Tribunal quest without finishing the one introduced by Morrowind but I'd rather wait anyways. Tribunal was also made for very high level players in mind so I'm really not into any rush.

    PS. I'm actually the Fighter's Guild Guildmaster.

    The main quest is getting more interesting now & it's even harder to quit the game.

    PS. On the second, the little red dot shows the location of a talking mudcrab.:rolleyes:

    He actually buy things from you. He has 10000 drakes which is twice as much as the kreeper in Caldera.:grinthumb

    Tel Fyr has a cuirass worth 210,000 gps and those assassins from Tribunal carry swords worth 48,000 each. Got my money up to $1,000,000+ now and can't find anything to do with it :eek:

    Level 44 Wood Elf Ranger with a permanent bound longbow (I dunno how... seems to be a bug - it was only supposed to be a 10 min longbow but it won't go away)

    Also got the full glass geddup courtesy Ghostgate :D

    They're also giving away the first game in the "Elder Scrolls" series, Arena.

    You'll need DosBox or something similar to run it, but still worth it imo. (If only I had the bloody time)
