Before we begin, you will need:-

A PC copy of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Ideally the final ‘Game of the Year’ (GoTY) edition. Not the Steam version!

A PC copy of the Bloodmoon Expansion Pack for Morrowind. (the GoTY Edition already contains this).

A PC copy of the Tribunal Expansion Pack for Morrowind. (the GoTY Edition already contains this).

You can currently get the GoTY edition second-hand for the silly price of about $8 inc postage.

I also suggest you order a copy of the paper book The Morrowind Prophecies (GoTY Edition), which is the 418-page strategy guide and quest guide to Morrowind (plus the Bloodmoon and Tribunal expansions). Obviously, buying this assumes you have the willpower to avoid peeking at the ending(s), or reading too far ahead on quest walkthroughs! Also, beware that it gives away the plot/game-ending in the introduction! Bastards. And it’s only in black and white, as was the way before the advent of cheap slave-labour printing in China.

Maps:— The strategy guide book has maps in black & white, so if you want the nice colour wall-maps on glossy paper (they are, in effect, mild spoilers) then you’ll need to buy copies of the original CDs (Morrowind, Tribunal, and Bloodmoon, individual editions) to get them. The original premium retail GoTY edition had a printed wall-map that combined all three maps, but most budget GoTY copies (now the most common type) don’t seem to have wall-maps in them.
