The Complete Fool In Morrowind

The RPS Hivemind is still recharging, the major nodes soldered directly into the towering soul-capacitors necessary to sustain their thin simulacrum of consciousness for another 12 months. Fortunately, an errant pustule has attained basic mobility, and opted to present you with artifacts from the Shotgun archives to help see you through until our resurrection. First up, a return to the Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, with…

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 9 – The Last Dwarf

Agent Loaf returns, after a brief hiatus so RPS could spend some quality time documenting its own history. Now, my plan with this series had been to avoid the core narrative for as long as possible (even though it's something I never got around to the first time I played Morrowind.) Then a funny thing happened. It became compelling. Based on how unsatisfactory I'd found…

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 8 – Domestic Bliss

Find the story so far here. It's an unfortunate reality of Vvardenfell that very few traders can afford to pay anywhere near the worth of the kind of loot that seasoned adventurers bring to them. Stands to reason, really - after all, if they did have several hundred thousand gold to spare, they probably wouldn't spend their days running grotty shops on a cursed island.…

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 6: Tweet

Today in my ongoing series (going on to where, I still don't know) of wanders through the wondrous land of Morrowind: postcards from the edge. The edge of irrelevancy. Apologies for the lack of an instalment yesterday, by the way: can't guarantee these will always happen daily, but they'll remain pretty regular. Oh - you need to read this one from the bottom up.

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 5 – Big Jobs

The Diamond Job The armed guard wasn’t the problem. The child was. I’d successfully lockpicked my way through the upstairs door, sneaking into this alchemist’s store from their unwatched balcony. The guard, I knew, was downstairs, watching the front door. If I stuck to the shadows, I should be able to get past him to the storeroom, where the jewel awaited. Easy. Straight in, straight…

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 4 – Existential Crisis

Something a little different (and a lot more serious) today, as I attempt a spot of pop psychoanaylsis on my own roleplaying habits. This won't be the end of my now-traditional comedy escapades, however. I've stolen clothes from corpses. I've made an old woman run up a mountain. I've hidden drugs in the cellar of a religious organisation. I've beaten up adorable animals. So many…

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 3 – Fort Stupid

I'm going to try and keep these diaries a little shorter. This does mean a) varying hilarity, depending on the situations I've genuinely encountered and b) my promised visit to the city is delayed by a day. If it's any consolation, that entry will involve trying to steal diamonds in front of children. A note to anyone thinking of building a fort: do not build…

A Fool In Morrowind, Day 1 – Trousers

Time for adventures! As you've probably gathered, I'm embarking on a series of diaries documenting my aimless exploits in Morrowind, the third Elder Scrolls game and predecessor to the, ah, divisive Oblivion. Armed only with a bunch of mods* and an entirely cavalier attitude towards lore and saving the world, I finally set off to Vvardenfell. In this first instalment - fighting ducks, plummeting wizards…

A Fool In Morrowind: Précis, Take 2

Alright - let's make this precious. Upon my first introduction to my impending Morrowind diary series, the resulting slew of comments threw up two important mistakes on my part. Number one, the Giants mod is a really, really bad idea. Number two, I'd totally overlooked the vitally important (in the beauty stakes, at least) Morrowind Graphics Extender. After a hard day of farting about with…

A Fool In Morrowind: Précis

Gaming diaries: all the rage, eh? Buoyed by the splendidosity of the likes of Roburky's Sims 3 chronicles and Tom Francis' Galactic Civilizations II bible, I'm embarking on something I've had brewing for a while - a diary of my (mis)adventures in Morrowind. I've always maintained it's a far better game than its sequel Oblivion (which was also pretty good), and now's my chance to…
