Tamriel Rebuilt aims to recreate "Mainland Morrowind" as Bethesda would have had they included it in the third Elder Scrolls game. TR uses a combination of imagination and lore to bring you new areas to explore, new secrets to discover and allowing a host of new adventures to unfold.

This release, Antediluvian Secrets, is the second part of this effort, with its varied landscape stretching from the famed ruins of Kemel-Ze in the west to the massive Boethian Lake to the east. This land is a treasure chest of ruins and ancient secrets waiting to be discovered, from the long-looted halls of Kemel-Ze, to the cursed ruin of Nchazdrumm, to the mysterium shrouding the ancient city of Dun Akafell. The land is mostly Telvanni but for the town of Helnim, awash in its own squalor, enamored by its own decline.

We consider Antediluvian Secrets to be a continuation of the Telvannis region, as it completes the land controlled by the eccentric and power-hungry Telvanni mage lords.

Some statistics for Antediluvian Secrets are displayed below:

-Over 580 exterior cells
-Over 420 interior cells
-Over 4000 dialogue entries
-Over 650 NPCs

You can see an overview of some of its most important landmarks HERE.

Below is a list of the key locations(barring a few) and some descriptions along with accompanying screenshots:

Kemel-Ze
Perhaps the most famous Dwemer ruin in Morrowind, Kemel-Ze is a gigantic complex that collapsed into the sea in ancient times. More recently it has been under the investigation of archaeologists, whose excavations have uncovered dozens of mysterious halls, grand vestibules, and magnificent chambers that speak to the grandness of Dwemer civilization.

Marog
This Telvanni village sits in a deep gorge created in ancient times with the collapse of Kemel-Ze. The citizens of Marog have looted the ruins of Kemel-Ze for centuries, and are a bit reluctant to accept the Imperial Archeological Society excavating the site.

Helnim
Helnim is the largest imperial settlement in the region. This once-great city has forgotten its nobler past and falling into disrepute as a hotbed of crime, split by the division between the Telvanni quarter and its insane Lord and the Imperial quarter with its drunken Lord stumbling around his crumbling halls.

Alt Bosara
Alt Bosara is a gorgeous Telvanni tower built against a cliff with a large waterfall. Alt Bosara is the stronghold of Master Vaerin of the Telvanni and a center for his vehemently anti-temple beliefs.

Tel Muthada
Though its agricultural roots are still apparent, most of Tel Muthada's wealth comes from trade between Helnim, Necrom, and Alt Bosara. Because of these trade routes, the empire build a fort near Tel Muthada, Cephorad Keep. Tel Muthada is currently under the control of Llenari Telsaran, the brutally direct Telvanni wizard.

Tel Muthada 3


Tel Mothrivra
Once a Temple monastic settlement, this location has since fallen under Telvanni control. The impiety of the Telvanni Lord has not done much to please the Temple faithful still present in the region.

The Wilderness
Much of this landscape remains untamed, with vast expanses of plains and towering mountains rising up to meet whoever is so bold as to seek them out. There are secrets waiting to be uncovered and adventures waiting to be had....if you choose to go exploring.

The wilderness of Antediluvian Secrets spreads over hundreds of cells of varied terrain and is filled with many smaller settlements, tombs, ruins, and shrines not outlined above. This time around we have taken even more care in making sure that each and every cell is interesting and unique. So get out there, explore, you never know what you might find!

This release does not include quests. As we did with Telvannis, we want you(the community) to be able to preview and enjoy the massive amounts of work done already, so you can quench your thirst and familiarize yourself with the locales while we work on bringing quests to the region.
Antediluvian Secrets is dependent on our previous release, Map 1. It completes the region known as Telvannis, or all the area covered by Great House Telvanni's holdings.



In Other News:

Quests for Telvannis are well on their way to the land where completed quests dwell; the main questline and higher level faction quests are all that remain. Well over one hundred quests await the player's time and wit on the final version of Telvannis. The aim while building these quests is to find a way to give the player real choices that will have solid effects on the world around them. Your actions will cause rulers to fall, beliefs to be challenged, and could affect the delicate balance of power between Imperial and Telvanni, native and n'wah, old and new.

Simply put, Telvannis is filled with stories of political intrigue, backstabbing, and long lost secrets that revolve around a power-struggle between the two most powerful women in Telvannis. This is not a story of brave knights and beautiful princesses, but of sneaky agents and manipulating rulers. Accordingly, it has all the cheap tricks and unsavory characters you would expect, along with the opportunity to unearth some things that haven't been seen in a long time...

The remainder of Morrowind is doing well, with progress in many areas of interior and exterior world-building. The city of Necrom, focal point of The Sacred East, was completely rebuilt with a new design. Our resident writing team is finishing up efforts to improve the quality of the new books added by the project, with "Gospels" in honor of the Tribunal saints. Work is also ongoing on things like the last few interiors in the giant city of Almalexia and the interior of the Castle of Old Ebonheart, the largest Imperial stronghold in Morrowind.

Work on our Oblivion project is also going well. If you own TES4, you might like to have a look at our Hammerfell project.

TR is still recruiting! If you have an interest in seeing this project coming to fruition, you might want to consider helping us out. Texturing, modeling, exteriors, interiors, scripting, dialogue or simply play-testing; if you can do it, we want to hear from you! Working in a team is a great way to get plenty of critical feedback on your work, and even if you just want to be a beta tester so that you can get a sneaky "first glance" at the quests or other unreleased content, you're welcome to drop by our forums. Quest writers, modelers, and texture artists are particularly sought-after at this time.

The Antediluvian Secrets are yours to discover... Good luck! Smile

- Tamriel Rebuilt Team

Hopefully this will keep you all occupied throughout December until Christmas arrives. Congratulations, TR.

MMMowSkwoz, we do not have a ESM to work with. It needs testing first so we would not quest an overly bugged version.


I assume...

Hi-fives all round. Go team! Very Happy

As a little present of my own, I'll shortly have the promised Census and Excise travel solution availiable for download, probably at Nexus and ElricM.


Oh, and one note Hap (sorry Tongue 2) : Dun Akafell is no longer part of Map 2. It was taken away in the big split.

Out of curiosity, there is a new version of the Map 1 master file, right? I don't see any reference to that fact in the release, and Map 1's download page has not been updated to include it. Is the new version included in the Map 2 download? If so, Map 1 shouldn't be listed as a "Required" mod on PES, and a reference to the bugfix release should be added to both Map 1's and Map 2's descriptions.

Very exciting that this has been released. I'm looking forward to giving Map 2 a proper exploration over winter break, as well as really whipping my quest claim into shape so I can move on to questing Map 2 (as well as prevent hangups in Map 1's progress towards a final version).

I'd like to let people know, Map 2 has been downloaded ~1900 times in the first week across the three hosts: PlanetElderScrolls, ModDataBase, and TESNexus. Also, it's received 10.00 ratings across the board! If you haven't downloaded it and/or rated, go do it now! I know I'm not the only one who would love to see Map 2 getting a Hall of Fame induction and become a Mod of the Month.
