So, I bought the Morrowind expansion for ESO, and jumped in last night. After a brief period of "WTF do any of these keys do?" I figured my best bet was to roll a new toon, and since Morrowind added wardens, I could try one of them too. A few minutes in character creation (and okay, an hour or so in the tutorial since I did NOT remember how to play at all), and here we are. Yes, I have a wolf and a clockwork horse. Yes, I am firmly convinced this is awesome, even if I walk everywhere.
I met a living god. VIVEC! Dude's stopping a meteor from squishing a city. Also, oooh shiny!
He also lives in a very lovely city (Vivec City, naturally). Which I got lost in. Repeatedly. In both Morrowinds.
I wandered around Balmora to store an old man's memories. I was very surprised how touching I found that quest line, it's a great one about family and love and regrets.
I became a semi-smooth criminal when I got confused about a quest and broke into a house. Since I'd already trespassed, I went for broke, snuck around, ducked into hiding places (which are highlighted when you're trespassing and sneaking), robbed the place, murdered a couple henchmen, then ran for my life/filthy ill-gotten gains back to Vivec City to get the bounty removed and my lovely new shinies sold. It was really suspenseful and enjoyable, and it was a nice break from normal questing. I still stink at the lockpicking game though. I should see if I can find an offline version to practice with...
And last, but not least, even if I didn't remember to take screencaps, I went on an epic quest for pumpkins! It's part of the ongoing holiday stuff, and I haven't finished the quest yet. I'm blaming it being 4 am by that point for lack of pics, but I went from Vivec City to Stonefalls (and halfway across that zone even though it's not this toon's faction) to get a few, and then to Glenumbra (what would be her starting zone if not for Morrowind).
While I was doing this, I got REALLY fed up with the lack of bag space, and someone in the zone chat said I should sub for the crafting bag. Wow, they were right. Basically, all the crafting stuff you pick up goes in an unlimited bag shared across all characters and it is BRILLIANT. This is possibly my new favorite feature ever.
(And my apologies for the UI in every screenshot. I need to figure out which button makes that go away and add it to the list...)
