Manipulated screenshot from the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


"Morthal is a small city in Skyrim located in the dense marshes of Hjaalmarch.Morthal, said to be named after the great Atmoran hero Morihaus, lies deep in the marsh, a foreboding area of Hjaalmarch isolated from other villages and shrouded by a constant and ominous fog."

"Morthal's small population and relatively remote location have kept it distant from most major conflicts in recent years. The citizens of Morthal appear reclusive and cautious of outsiders. They are quite vocal about removing the town's more recent settler, a wizard by the name of Falion. They fear he might upset the balance of their quiet and peaceful existence."
"Due to their distrust of magic, the Jarl does not have an acting court wizard. She remains neutral on the presence of a wizard in her town and allows him to practice magic and sell his supplies in the privacy of his own home."

I'm very honored, even though it's pretty unlikely, but who knows? xD

Love the place, but the surly people never make me want to stay in Morthal for a long time :(
Well, except for the Jarl's daughter... :D

To be fair, I don't remember much about this town besides the vampire plot. I remember that there's always a nice dawn with the foggy atmosphere, though. x)

Indeed. And in fact I like the quest very much, even if it often ends up quite bugged, like with the Alva character ^^
It's up to everyone's sensibility, but to be honest it's not the place I hate the most in Skyrim, far from it :D
The swamps have quite a peaceful atmosphere, for sure :)

Beautiful night sky and snowy mountaintops. Love the crisp cold feeling but has nice calming feeling despite the sad Vampire story of the Ghost Girl. That reminds Me time to do some Vampire Hunting!^^

Hey, thank you so much! Well, it would be quite embarrassing if I were a vampire, cough cough...

I always had a heart for Morthal... ;) The vampire story to go with it was quite nice.

So you didn't enjoy being a vampire, eh? :D

Depends... I've played a number of vampire characters (usually with Live another Life / Requiem and the usual stuff like Better Vampires and so on) it's quite nice... but then there are a bunch of much wilder character setups and abilities ;)... so usually I get rid of it at some point.

But I do love the location at Morthal (it's also pretty central) and the quest is one of the nicer ones. Another favorite place is Falkreath. Much more than the 'big' towns.

What I never play are werewolves, tho. Can't say why but I really destest them. That's why I never got far with the companions, even though I did the Hircine quest.

It's nice that you enjoyed vampires in Skyrim. Honestly, I was pretty disappointed by them. The vampire lord form is just useless if compared to the werewolf form. So sad. :(

Indeed, Morthal region is pretty nice. That fog gives it a nice atmosphere, as well as the snow. Falkreath is perfect! Maybe my favorite place in Skyrim. xD Had you ever buy a house in there?

Oh really? :( Maybe you're more inclined to be vampire, haha. It was really nice to slaghter everyone using the werewolf form, while listening to Rammstein. xD
