Firemoth

Reimplementation of the original Firemoth quest was discussed. There is consensus that we do not want to fundamentally change the premise - the fort has been overrun by Grurn’s undead army. There is a general desire to make it more interesting than the original, however.   Access to the quest should be gated by one of the following

  1. A rank 4 or higher in the Imperial Legion
  2. Have a certain amount of general Reputation (perhaps 5 or 10 or something)

  Other ideas that were discussed:

  • Expand on the background of the Ward of Akavir
    • the shield was probably part of the invasion in the 2nd era
    • maybe that spot is where the wielder was drowned by vivec
  • Make companions - and their survival - matter
    • (they would have to be reimplemented with TR-specific IDs, but we want to keep the names, at the very least)
    • Upon success, they might get a Legion pension
  • Use the new rising skeleton animation to spawn skeletons on the beach / from the ground
  • Grurn himself is prime material for making a scripted boss fight
    • What is his phylactery? Does he have one?
    • What does he do with the Ward?
    • He might raise minions / bring skeletons back to life throughout the fight
    • Surviving companions might be scripted to somehow make this fight easier

Fort Firemoth can be turned into a player stronghold for an Imperial Legion player, at rank 7 or higher. Details will be discussed at a later time.

Hotfix

Should be made - minimum content is a fix to the “DELETEME” reply to “Dwemer Ruins” in Dagon Fel. Automatically generating one from differences between Morrowind.esm and Morrowind.esp did not work.
