As I said in my Showcase thread I've been on an Arena kick. So I was in Morrowind doing various palace quests, and decided to see if there were any in Silnim Dale. I enter the city and per usual the flavor text pops up. Normally, for villages & towns (not major cities) it either says something about the taverns being welcoming or it tells you who the ruler is; in this case the latter.
And what do you know? According to Arena the ruler of Silnim Dale (very close to Tear) happens to be named "Count Helseth"!
Thought I'd share.
