Striders of Vvardenfell


Badge Awards


The title pretty much gives it away, at least for all the experts among you - yes! This is my first Morrowind tribute. I have been playing the Elder Scrolls Online recently, which has reminded me of what a great game Morrowind used to be. Maybe it is just a feeling of nostalgia, but I must say that I still find the level design wonderfully creative and original, even by today's standards. Perhaps it was only beaten by the Oblivion expansion Shivering Isles, but I'm starting to ramble...

What you see here is of course some fictional setting and not a specific town in the game -  it could be the area around Balmora perhaps. In any case, I had to recreate the impressive striders of course, and no Morrowind related art piece should come without the famously annoying Cliff Racers. As always I'm not 100% happy with the outcome, but at least I had a lot of fun during the process. Hope you like it!
