Exclusive: First Look at Morrowind for The Elder Scrolls: Official Survival Guide to Tamriel

Insight Editions has granted IGN an exclusive new look at the Morrowind chapter for The Elder Scrolls Online: The Official Survival Guide to Tamriel. Featuring vibrant, visceral artwork and advice on how to not get legally assassinated, this in-universe survival guide seems like it could be a must-own for any Elder Scrolls fans. Ja'dasha, the intradiegetic Khajiit author of the book, is your ever-constant guide throughout each of the nine provinces found in Tamriel: High Rock, Skyrim, Hammerfell, Cyrodiil, Valenwood, Summerset Isles, Morrowind, Black Marsh, and Elsweyr.


The Elder Scrolls Online: The Official Guide to Tamriel will be released on March 26, 2024, and can be preordered from

Ja'dasha tells the reader during an introduction: "Tamriel is like a patchwork quilt. To the west lay deserts and crags. To the east are volcanoes and swamps. Islands, oases, jungles, and tundras... the nature of this land shifts more often than the phases of the moons, and so too shift its dangers."

The Khajiit will continue through your journey to each chapter, providing handy advice on cultural aspects of each race in Tamriel, alongside context and background for each province that most Elder Scrolls fans should find a strange sense of comfort in. For example, in the Morrowind chapter, the guide delves into the many 'Great Houses' associated with owning much of the landmass of Morrowind.


Contrasting these houses, it also discusses Ashlanders, who "control no territory, but rather live a nomadic life on the island of Vvardenfell. They are allowed to reside only in most inhospitable regions, and are generally looked down upon by the rest of the Dunmer."

Surviving the treacherous lands of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is quite the ordeal, and the same can be said for The Elder Scrolls Online. While perusing the ash-laden lands of the Dark Elves, it won't be unsurprising to hear that it is not so easy to avoid getting killed by legal assassinations if the writ of the Morag Tong deems it so; a gameplay loop we're sure many of us have partaken in over the years.

Should the Morag Tong receive a writ for your death... Pray to whatever deity you believe in.

"Avoiding (Legal) Assassinations: Tamriel is home to many assassins, but only in the lands of Morrowind that such a job is perfectly, completely, and utterly legal in the guild of the Morag Tong."

"As Ja'dasha writes this, she realizes that she has not much advice about avoiding assassinations. She has never heard of someone surviving the Morag Tong, and is not even sure if has ever been done."

"And so she has only one thing to suggest should the Morag Tong receive a writ for your death... Pray to whatever deity you believe in."


The Elder Scrolls Online: The Official Guide to Tamriel will release on March 26, 2024, and can be preordered from Amazon for $39.99. For even more news, deals, and preorders on the latest book releases, consider following
