The following links are presented in categories, and geared toward newcomers.
Before You Even Get Started
Gluby’s Comprehensive Guides – If you are thinking about jumping in to the PC version of Morrowind, which is an adventure all its own, do yourself (and the community) a huge favor and spend some time reading through Gluby’s Guides…before even installing the game. These guides represent an articulate amalgamation of collected wisdom, presented in a friendly and highly readable format (that’s also easy on the eyes). Even if you aren’t planning on using mods just now there is much to be gained in terms of having a clean and stable base installation of the game.
Working With Mods
Starting Out With Mods – This helpful tutorial by Ronin49 will walk you through the seemingly daunting task of adding mods to Morrowind. Spend a few minutes reading through this well-written guide and you’ll soon discover it’s not nearly as bad as it seems at first. By starting off with a basic understanding of installation, load order, cleaning and usage of mod utilities, Ronin49 will have you up and running in no time.
Yacoby’s Load Order Tutorial – If you plan on running a lot of mods then you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the practice of Load Ordering. While it may seem a bit complicated at first, thanks to Yacoby it doesn’t have to be. He’s put together an excellent tutorial explaining everything you need to know about setting up a good Load Order.
Galahaut’s Mod Conflict Listing – Due to the extensible nature of mods overlap is inevitable. For example two different mods might try to add a building to the same plot of land. As you might imagine this can result in some awkward effects. Fortunately there’s no need to find this out the hard way, thanks to the work of Faceless_Wanderer and other contributors. This neatly compiled Wiki will help you avoid running two or more mods that would otherwise conflict.
Gameplay FAQs, Hints and Walkthroughs
WARNING: These sites contains spoilers.
Galahut’s Morrowind FAQ – Straightforward answers to a handful of common questions.
Hannah’s Whereizit is one of the best resources for getting to those “hard to find Morrowind places, people and items.” In other words, if you’re stuck then this the place to go. (Offline?)
Arwen’s Morrowind Journal – Few people have managed to capture the spirit of adventure and discovery in the world of Morrowind like ~ Arwen ~ …Join in the comedic adventures of a “clueless” Wood Elf as she seeks to make sense of a strange new land, and the political infighting of Tamriel’s Dark Elf province.
The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages has put together a well-organized Wiki, useful for digging through Morrowind related information, including a complete walkthrough for the main storyline (and tips on fixing broken quests).
Where to Go for Personalized Help
Bethesda Softworks Forums – The official forums for the Morrowind community. A great place to turn to for help, AFTER having read through the masterfully prepared guides mentioned above.
Emma’s Elder Scrolls Forum – One of the better third party forums, with a focus on mods by Emma and Grumpy, two of the community’s preeminent modders (and all around helpful people).
Other Useful Resources
Elric Melnibone – Many of the most useful Console Commands require that you enter the precise “Object ID” for the item or NPC. This database, provided by Elric M and company, is the best known resource for locating those IDs. One of the great Morrowind resources; taken offline in early 2012.
OpenMW – Here’s something worth a look. OpenMW is an ambitious attempt to create an open-source (and presumably cross-platform) implementation of the Morrowind game engine. What does that mean in plain language? Potentially, a more stable Morrowind that runs on Windows, Mac and Ubuntu.
