Tamriel Rebuilt is a large fan project for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. When Bethesda Softworks, the developers of the Elder Scrolls series, started designing the game towards the end of the 1990s, the original intent was to include all of the eponymous country's landmass in the game. As it turned out, this was too large a task and the scope was reduced to Morrowind's central volcanic island, Vvardenfell. Even so, the result was an enormous, colorful world that many, in our project and beyond, still consider one of their most memorable game experiences.
Our aim is to pick up where Bethesda left off: by creating the rest of its mainland, we are building Morrowind as it could have been, in a way that is truthful to the vision of the original developers. Rather than just providing a game world several times the size of the original, we want that world's vistas, stories and people to be every inch as captivating as its example.
Tamriel Rebuilt is a long-term project. What took a team of paid, full-time developers several years obviously takes a group of volunteers longer. On the other hand we also have the luxury of not being bound by the same temporal and budgetary constraints that a game studio is subject to, which means we are free to undertake some things that would otherwise never become reality.
There is much to be created, much to be expanded and improved upon, and for that we need all the help we can get. If you love Morrowind and its world, if you are interested in the creation of mods or games, or if you just want a creative outlet in a lively online community, consider taking a look at how to join the project.
