Just started the game again as a theif/mage so I can try the combat from as much angles as possible with just 1 character. Yes the game is large and there are quests to do and such, but I don't see it holding a candle to everything out now..?
You should try a quest mod that I'm almost finished with. My quests are a little different. One of them is just dialogue based, no fetch this, bring it to me, kill that, stuff. I think that style is waaaay overdone in TES series. My quest has to do with a Hlaalu husband and wife who have some trust issues in their relationship, and you, the Player, have to decide who's side you're on (the husband, the wife, or neither) and either lie, tell the truth, or don't get involved and just leave. I love Morrowind for its open endedness and freedom (sucks that their games now are becoming more and more linear).
I'm also working on Pelagiad Expanded but it's so freakin big in scale and there is so much detail to add to it, that it will take a few years to complete. But I intend to let the Player be whoever they want and do whatever they want as best as possible. That includes allowing Player to be a butcher, baker, candlestick maker, mercer, cooper, stone cutter, rope maker, prostitute, tapestry maker, thief, historian, monk, knight, musician, poet.... well, here's a screenshot of the town of Pelagiad "expanded" thus far. Another great modder named Regaez designed all the exterior you see. I am in charge of interior design.
What is great about Morrowind is that the game did not force you into the main quest, but rather, you had to find the main quest on your own. Oblivion and Skyrim give you that "sense of urgency" like you need to get going and do this main quest now, or else all hell will break loose!
With Morrowind, you have to do a lot of reading and learning to discover you are the Neravarine to solve the main quest. And I'm sorry, but Dragonborn is just the corniest and cheesiest sounding name. Sounds like something a 5th grader would name his character. Dhovakhiin sounds like a spin-off of Morrowind.
Alrighty, gotta go to class now.
