"Wake Up. We're Here. Why are you shaking? Are you ok? Wake up. Stand up. There you go. You were dreaming. What's your name?"
For as long as I live I will never forget these words, or forget where they were first uttered. I put my Elder Scrolls 3 : Morrowind disc in my windows XP what seems like an age ago, now. At first, I couldnt get into it, the funny walking animation, the silly voice the guard has, it was all rather... comical to me.
Now though, I keep returning to play the damn game every several months, and remain playing it for a few months, with a slightly different character every time. This time, I have created Matt, a dunmer. This is actually the first time I have played with a Dunmer, so it should be interesting. This will just be a journal of my experiences with Morrowind, considering the last time I played this game was several months ago, now. So, lets go.
Ahh Jiub, old mate old pal. Rumor in Oblivion has it that you are now a saint. Though, how you drove all the cliffracers from Morrowind is anyones guess. Nevermind, love to stay and talk, but Sir PoopedhisPants is here.
I watch as the guard approaches, his walk never failing to put a smile on my face. What is with that? Does he need to kick his feet out at that angle, like whats wrong with him? Ah well, nevermind. At least he talks.
I follow the guy, getting into a run to keep up. We get to some stairs and he has a go at me. Well, it seems that way.
"Get yourself up on deck and lets keep this as CIVIL as possible."
"Damn, someone needs a nappy change... 'scuse the pun"
I do as he commands and climb out. The, honestly, unpleasant view of Seyda Neens Dock greets me, how lovely. I can imagine it would smell something similar to a local fish mongery, but my nose has been blocked by walking behind the guard and living with Saint Jiub for a few... how ever long ive been there.
I carry on walking, down the gangplank, ignoring a friendly redguard and make conversation with a frankly better guard. He asks me to show my face and by that I mean its the race game.
... to save you the boredom, I chose Dark Elf.
...to be continued.
