Feast your eyes on this returning visitor from the Bush and Britney Era….Morrowind is back and it’s had some work done! This addition to The Elder Scrolls Online adds the areas from Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, first released in 2002. We’re told the storyline will take place about 700 years before the events that happened […]

Let’s Get Crazy With Sheogorath Lore Featuring His Original Voice Actors

by Shawn Hopkinson October 13, 2014
ShoddyCast’s latest Elder Scrolls lore video chronicles the Daedric Prince of Madness, Sheogorath, and it’s a gibbering good time. What makes it special is that they’ve managed to get Jeff Baker, who voiced Sheogorath and his chamberlain Haskill in Morrowind and Wes Johnson, who voiced Sheogorath in Oblivion and Skyrim, to narrate the video. The […]

Skywind Bitter Coast

Explore Morrowind’s Revamped Bitter Coast in New Skywind Video

by Shawn Hopkinson September 15, 2014
This new video from the Skywind project makes me want to check tree stumps for rings. The Bitter Coast has never looked prettier than it does in the Skyrim engine, thanks to the Skywind modders ambitious goal of recreating Morrowind in the Skyrim engine. The Skywind project is a volunteer effort that seeks to create […]

Here’s Your Most Extensive Look at Skywind Yet

by Shawn Hopkinson August 20, 2014
In this video we finally get a look at Skywind, the mod that’s attempting to bring Morrowind into the Skyrim engine, at ground level. It gives us a much better idea what it’s like to play it than previous videos that mostly featured views of the landscape through  a disembodied camera. The 13 minute video […]

New Guar Plush is Cute, Sturdy

by Shawn Hopkinson July 18, 2014
Bethesda recently showed off this bit of cuteness, a guar plush based off the version of Morrowind’s favorite pack animal from The Elder Scrolls Online. The plush guar is being made by Gaming Heads. It’ll set you back $20. As a bonus, the guar also comes with a code for The Elder Scrolls Online that […]
Skywind Daedric Ruins

Explore Daedric Ruins in New Skywind Trailer

by Shawn Hopkinson June 5, 2014
The joy of Morrowind was that it was so weird. In some ways very much like an alien world. For me transitioning from silt striders and strangeness to the more generic fantasy environment of Oblivion was a sort of aesthetic whiplash, and one of the reasons Oblivion captured my imagination slightly less than Morrowind. The […]

Skywind Mod

Here’s a nice new video showing off some of the latest work on the Skywind mod, a mod which puts the lands of Morrowind in the Skyrim engine. More information about the mods, including how you can help out, is available at the mod’s official site
Skyrim Mage Mage

Do Mages Have Less Fun in Skyrim?

by Shawn Hopkinson February 27, 2014
Does Bethesda hate mages? A recent article, where The Escapist’s Shamus Young makes just that point, is worth reading and discussing. Young lists several points to support his theory, from mage robes being “stupid and boring,” to destruction skills not scaling with skill level. “I’ve leveled numerous mages and numerous fighters. There’s no comparison. Melee […]

Skywind Ashlands

Soar Through the Northern Ashlands in New Skywind Mod Trailer

by Shawn Hopkinson February 19, 2014
I’ve been following the Skywind mod for a while now, and I don’t think any of the videos released so far have shown its potential better than this nearly finished look at the revamped Northern Ashlands. It’s just gorgeous, and it promises to get even better as the mod advances. “Still a work in progress, […]

by Shawn Hopkinson January 22, 2014
What, you want another gorgeous Skywind trailer? Okay. Try not to drool, I heard that was bad for keyboards. Creatures and water effects are looking especially spiffy in “Savagery,” the latest trailer from the Skywind team. Skywind is an ambitious upcoming Skyrim mod that seeks to update Morrowind to use the Skyrim engine. The mod […]
