Welcome to Tamriel Rebuilt!

 

Welcome to Tamriel Rebuilt, a project that aims to complete development of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind by reconstructing the world to include the province’s mainland, through the study of creation of lore, and preservation of the game’s creative vision and direction.

Our team is full of artists, modders, and writers passionate about the lore and mythos of the Elder Scrolls games, and has worked hard to build on the foundation Bethesda Softworks laid, and to remain true to their vision.

To date, over half of the mainland has been created, with more on the way. Ongoing coordination with Project Tamriel has assisted both mods, with pooled resources, lore, and assets. Though the project is over fourteen years old, work continues with new modders joining periodically. Our completed and in-progress work is available for the public to play and enjoy.

Tamriel Rebuilt - Official Statement of Vision

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 14, 2014

For more than a decade, Tamriel Rebuilt has been a project dedicated to extending and expanding the game world of Morrowind in a manner consistent with the themes, tones, and back story of the original game - as we have often said, “as Bethesda would have done it.” As a fan project which has grown, changed, and learned as it has gone through the process of developing this content, our understanding of what this means has evolved over the years.

Once, there was a time when Tamriel Rebuilt interpreted our self-imposed mandate to mean including every town in Arena, under such wonderfully inspired names as “Reich Parkeep,” “Karththor Dale” (double th in the original) and “Green Heights.” Once there was a time when Tamriel Rebuilt interpreted our mandate to mean we couldn’t raise land higher than Red Mountain (because it is alleged to be the second highest mountain in Tamriel), that we couldn’t use ash or Sixth House or ancient stronghold assets on the Mainland (because of some throwaway lines of dialogue), and so on.

What we’ve realized, though, is that our commitment to creating this game world “as Bethesda would have done it” requires something much more than scouring every line in every book and dialog topic for tiny statements that we could blow up into strict edicts of fact. What it requires is a commitment to the high caliber of storytelling, world-building, and art that makes Morrowind the game we all love so long after its release. Moreover, we have discovered that some aspects of the original content are actually very limiting on our ability to achieve our goal, and that we must sacrifice strict adherence to the literal content of Morrowind to maintain the integrity of our commitment to the themes, narratives, and lore of Morrowind.

These are mainly aspects of the game which have their origin in its limitations. Surely no one believes that if Morrowind were set in all of Morrowind and not only Vvardenfell, it would have one version of each faction on Vvardenfell and another version off of the island. The quarantine, similarly, is a small line of dialogue in order to justify the player’s inability to leave the island, not some integral narrative element that makes the game what it is. In time, Tamriel Rebuilt will make these small changes for the sake of a better final product.

Tamriel Rebuilt releases a Major Alpha!

Tamriel Rebuilt is pleased to open the new year with a brand new massive alpha release. This alpha contains content from the west of Morrowind – including the entirety of our Heartland release & the southern half of our Veloth release in terms of Exteriors. It also includes parts initially slated for the Almalexia release that were separated from the city proper, which have a greater level of polish (including interiors and a few NPCs). If you're lucky, you might even find a quest or two! Some of you may also recognize part of this work from our previous Heartland alpha; this unofficial release (which includes the previous alpha) contains FAR more landmass & many bug fixes, as well as some interiors and the occasional NPC. It should be kept in mind that we are not yet done making these regions, and some of the progress we have made has not been merged into this alpha. As always, anyone who wants to get involved in populating this land is highly welcome -- please read our About and Join pages, then drop by our forums and showcase your skills!
