Morrowind's Red Year by Jedi-Art-Trick Morrowind's Red Year by Jedi-Art-Trick
My Morrowind nostalgia has kicked in bad since playing the Dragonborn DLC, and the whole Red Year lore event has energized my imagination. I consider Morrowind my fantasy game homeland :)

This is stunning; I love the lighting emitted by the lava, and the ash swirling in the air.  In fact, I've had this as my computer's desktop wallpaper for several months, without the temptation to change it, which is unusual for me.

Morrwind is indeed a fantasy homeland for many.

Yes. It so is. Back in the day when I was playing it a LOT I had these vivid dreams of striding through the island, talking to dunmers, and having a debate with some Telvanni witch about Nerevar and coughing with the dust during the storms when approaching Ald'ruhn in a smelly silt strider with a really weird looking cat-person. I remember how alien a Khajit actually looks, when the fur on it's face reflects the light of the moons and you see your face reflected in these weeeeeir cat eyes. Never dreamt up an argonian though. Didn't meet a whole lot of them in-game, hey didn't leave such a mark.

I don't know why, but despite the graphics being nothing compared to the games of today and the lack of recorded dialogue or actual conversations that game felt so real. 

P.S. Hate what they did to how elves look in ESO.

Exactly, morrowind just kind of pulled players into the game. The graphics at the time were, good. I actually track down working first gen xboxes so I can continue playing. I hate to say it but I've been waiting for a reboot version of morrowind to come out for new consoles.  As for the elves of ESO, I haven't seen to much of them.

oh god yes, poor Vvvardenfell. I was testing the alpha of the mod 'shadow of morrowind' , they try to make the post red year island.

this makes me sad
based on the description of the red year from in-game and the novels, vvardenfell probably resembles a nuclear bomb test site

That's why it would make a fantastic game setting- a sort of oppressive fallout-ish vibe, while being a story of perseverance (the summer rebuilding their society).
After Dragonborn DLC I REALLY want to go back to Morrowind and see how much things have changed since I remember it.

I was sort of hoping that Skywind was going to be that, but I'm still happy it's coming
Hail to the best TES game ever! And I mean Morrowind, of course :>
