On the island of Vvardenfell, the native 'Dunmer' maintain an uneasy relationship with each other, and with the ruling Empire. The mythical Ghostgate - said to protect the island and the rest of the world from a great evil - is beginning to weaken, and local beasts and other monstrosities are increasingly becoming common in the land, with no clear end in sight. The three God-Kings of Morrowind have taken to their private abodes, refusing to walk and talk amongst the people they've served. In the midst of all this, an Imperial prisoner of unknown parentage is shipped to this ancient island, given a small stipend, and told to talk to a man in a nearby town. Life on Morrowind - and of the world of Tamriel - is about to change. Written by

As of 2004 - roughly two years after the game was released - many of the newest systems still have difficulty playing the game at an acceptable speed. See more
The inscription on the shrine near the Koal Cave says that Vivec taught the Dunmer to create armor from dreugh wax, but if you take one look at a dreugh and dreugh armor, you can easily see that the armor is made from its carapace without being changed save for the dreugh having been hollowed out..
