The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is an RPG developed by Bethesda Softworks for the PC and Xbox. When released in 2002, it offered players an unprecedented amount of freedom. Players could join factions, take sides and complete a myriad of quests with multiple solutions, all while traversing a 10 square mile continent. A complex character creation system allowed players to tune their character to best match their playing style for a world which increases in difficulty as they increase in skill. The game has won numerous awards since its release including GameSpy's Game of the Year and IGN RPG Vault's Game of the Year.

This freedom for character creation and quest choice, not to mention the game's popularity, will drive the format of this LP. Rather than have just me play the game, I will be opening up the faction and side-quest lines in the game to any interested LPer while I handle the main quest. Anyone on SA will be allowed to LP a quest line and show it off to the thread.

Some do it by spells. Some do it by alchemy. Some do it by selling Ordinator armor and training themselves. Yet others do it by enchantments. Some do it by reading several guides, while others may do it completely unintentionally. Whatever your style, Morrowind offers limitless possibilities to break your game and make yourself a god, possibly before even starting the game's main quest.

Should you choose to enter the contest, you have between the time of this post and the time of the update when aredevil_MD reaches Red Mountain to begin the final quest to post either a video of no longer than 10 minutes or a series of no more than 10 screenshots showing how you broke The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. This contest is open to both LPers and non-LPers.

You may use any form of commentary (audio, subbed, or image captions) and video/image editing to enhance your entry. The video and screenshots can be any format you choose as long as they're viewable, although I ask that you keep your filesizes or image sizes low so it doesn't take forever to load. I am also limiting submissions to 2 per person.

You may use mods while breaking the game, however you cannot use them as the sole means of breaking your game. For example, you can use Galsiah's Character Development while leveling your strength to 1 million, but you cannot mod yourself a maxed-out sword and then use only that to, say, kill Vivec.

You are allowed to contain plot spoilers in your entry (in fact, I will assume your entry contains spoilers), however if you're using screenshots and you do include spoilers, you must post them off-site using LPix or another host.

I will allow some small exceptions to these rules if they make your entry more entertaining.

I will give at least a week's notice before I post the first Red Mountain update (which may take a while, because if I LP the expansions I will do them first). Once I post it, submissions will be closed and the thread will vote for the best entry during the following week. The entry which receives the most votes will receive an SA forums certificate for up to $10.
