Description
An ancestral tomb on an island in the Thirr River delta. Note that despite the claim ID which states this'd be a Hlaalu interior the tomb is on land that in the past would've been Indoril.

I like the overall feel of the tomb very much with the caved-in bit and the relic of St. Felms. However, this feels a bit too uber for the low level area that Thirr River Valley is supposed to be.

Changes I'd make:
* significantly lower level locks
* link "TR_key_m4-512_triolith" to a door so Detect Key spell can detect it
* "TR_a_m4-512_helm" is too powerful/valuable IMO. I'd reduce the price to a half and either change the enchantment to Cast When Used or lower the Frost Shield and Fortify Endurance effects (maybe 20 pts and 10 pts, respectively)

I would be happy to make changes to the majority of the tomb, if there are any notable issues before that locked metal door. I guess I'll scan the place and check out the locks, loot, etc. However I put an effort into making the areas before the heavy locked door low-level, so I don't think I'll find much.

Anyways, I locked that door at 100 just so new players would not be able get through the last part of the tomb. Instead they'd have to improve their skills and come back at a later point. I made sure that they already had enough to explore before they reached that part of the tomb. Also, I made that key so hard to find for one reason: there needs to be a big challenge to get to the high-level reward that you pointed out. So it's not like any low-level players will be getting their hands on it, unless they are cheaters or somehow end up getting very lucky.

If you and others still aren't convinced about some of this, I'll go ahead and fix the issues you pointed out. For consistency I'll likely attach that key to a chest or door anyways. However, I personally believe that overall it is a fine tomb for low-level players to explore.

It's great to see that someone else is adding interesting unique loot into their claims Smile

Fortify Endurance is really weak since it does not affect the amount of health you gain when you level up, so 15 pts will only provide you with the secondary effect of 15 pts extra maximum Fatigue and no health at all. 40 pts Frost Shield is a rather high amount but still fine IMO, Frost damage is not very common, so the resistance is not that important (hell, Nords get 100 pts naturally), but 40 pts do damage surrounding enemies for 4 pts of Frost Damage per second.

Value doesn't really matter in Morrowind since you can't sell stuff anywhere for the full price, you can only buy many items from the trader in exchange and 11.000 is not that much anyways.

Therefore I think it's completely fine. The 100 pts lock will keep low level PCs out of the area sufficiently enough, as RyanS has pointed out.

I've attached a new file with a few small changes, as followed:

- The triolith key can now unlock several chests in the final chamber of the tomb.
- A chest in one of the storage rooms has had its lock level lowered from 45 to 15.

I didn't lower any lock levels on doors as none exceeded 25, excluding the metal door. The loot before the locked chamber seems alright to Ragox and I, due to it being so hard to get to, so nothing there was changed. I kept everything else the same. If there are still objections with how the tomb has been built, I'll get to fixing the issues if several people have agreed they must be fixed.
