"The Road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can, pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say." - J.R.R. Tolkien


Twenty years, a generation ago, a lifetime ago, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was released in the early days of May 2002, bringing with it a strange new alien world, full of mystery and wonder, a world quite unlike anything we had seen before. Morrowind was a foreign shore, home to countless strange and unusual sights, from the very first silt strider, to the very last beat of a cliff racer's wings. It was full of danger but also beauty, giving us the freedom to explore and to build our own path in this wondrous alien land.


Now, twenty years later, the alien is far more familiar, and far from being foreign, Morrowind is home, a home that we come back to, again and again, each time discovering something new, or adding something that was missing before. For Morrowind was one of the first games to truly fully embrace modding, giving us, the players, the ability to craft whole new adventures, build whole new worlds, and to improve upon every aspect of what was there before. After 20 years, Morrowind is home to a growing, bustling modding community that not only continues to thrive, but which has grown remarkably over the past few years, with over a thousand new mods released each year!


So today, in order to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this truly remarkable and one-of-a-kind game that we all know and love, we're once again hosting a May Modathon Month, the 8th Annual Modding Competition for the community, which has become the largest annual modding competition in the entire TES modding scene! Throughout the entire month of May, participating modders on the Nexus who submit Morrowind mods could get a chance to win indie or AAA games each week. Likewise, all participating mods will be entered to win one of the Masteries, by becoming the most popular mod in a particular category!


Not only that, but all winners will get trailers, special showcases, and numerous video features on Morrowind Modding Showcases. And the winners of the category Masteries will naturally get featured in our Mod of the Month series, celebrating the best mods released for Morrowind each month. Not only that, but this year we're once again handing out achievements, little badges that you can unlock and plug into your mod download pages!


The 2021 Modathon was one of the biggest modding competitions held for an Elder Scrolls game, with about 230 new mods getting submitted by dozens of different modders, and with your help, we can make this year an even bigger success! The best games never die, so let's make Morrowind better than ever before with tons of new mods!





Once again this year, we're including achievements that you can earn and unlock by releasing mods! These are little badges that you can plug into your mod download pages, and we have over 70 achievements that you can unlock! Release a quest mod? Achievement Unlocked! Get over 100 downloads? Achievement Unlocked! See the full list of achievements down below. Some of these achievements are rare or unique, others are common, and still more are hidden and can only be unlocked by accident or chance.

New this year are weekly, optional, theme-based modding challenges that will be running throughout this month's competition, with new achievements to unlock and new prizes to win! I must emphasize that these are OPTIONAL challenges, the Morrowind May Modathon has always been and will continue to be a free-for-all modding competition where all are welcome, regardless of themes, but if you'd like to unlock some additional cheevos and get a chance to win some additional prizes, you can try your hand at making a mod to fit one of the weekly themed challenges below.

  1. Week 1: May 1st-7th, Make a mod that fits the theme of "Blood & Faith" (Use the header image here to participate)
  2. Week 2: May 8th-14th, Make a mod that fits the theme of "Vanity & Alteration" (Use the header image here to participate)
  3. Week 3: May 15th-21st, Make a mod that fits the theme of "Hunted & Chaos" (Use the header image here to participate)
  4. Week 4: May 22nd-28th, Make a mod that fits the theme of "Love & Crime" (Use the header image here to participate)
  5. Week 5: May 29th-June 2nd, Make a mod that fits the theme of "Secret & Escape" (Use the header image here to participate)

Can you make a mod to match each theme? Each of these challenges are deliberately designed to be fairly broad and open to interpretation, potentially fitting any of a wide variety of mods, allowing you to let your creativity go wild!


Participation and How it Works:


You can participate by leaving a short note in the mod description page of your mod at Morrowind Nexus that includes "Part of the May Modathon Month" somewhere near the top of the description or use the "Modathon 2022" tag to mark your mod as a competition entry.


Every week, at least five different modders will be selected at random to win a single AAA or Indie game, and the way this works is that we'll compose a list of all participating mods released that week, plug them into a random number generator, and the first five results we get back will be the winners for that week.


If you win in one of these weekly drawings, I'll send you a message on the Nexus or Discord notifying you that you've won and providing a list of games you can choose from as your prize. We have over 500 games to give away, so hopefully you'll find something you want on there!


Unlike in past years, we'll be deterring the \winners of the Modathon by category, so the mods with the highest endorsements in each of our competition categories by June 30th will be declared the winners.


We'll be going by whichever categories you upload your mods on the Nexus to, and obviously, some categories (like Weapons and Armor) will be counted under broader categories like "Items". If you have any questions regarding how this will all work, exactly, feel free to post them below!


In total, there's 11 categories with Masteries (and other categories of mods will be included under one of the existing categories, if you're posting a mod to Miscellaneous for example, we'll include it under the category that makes sense, depending on the mod, or you can include what category you want it to be included under in the mod description):

  1. Companions/Creatures/NPCs
  2. Dungeons
  3. Gameplay Mods/Bug Fixes/Patches/UI (Depends on UI mod, some may be categorized as Graphics)
  4. Graphics Mods/Animations/Audio/Shaders
  5. Immersion Mods
  6. Items/Weapons/Armor/Books/Etc...
  7. Landscapes/Landmasses
  8. Modder's Resources/Utilities
  9. Player Homes
  10. Quests/Guilds&Factions
  11. Towns and Cities



Overall this competition and giveaway is pretty easy to understand, and there aren't a whole lot of rules involved, but there are a few things we should clear up just in case.


First, all types of mods are perfectly acceptable. From texture replacers to gameplay tweaks to content mods like house mods, quest mods, or dungeon mods. All of those are fine and will be accepted for the competition! The only kind of mod that will NOT be accepted is cheat mods, i.e. placing a barrel full of loot in the middle of Seyda Neen or placing a Daedric longsword in the Census and Excise Office. Cheat mods like that will not be considered for the competition.


Also, we accept both tes3mp and OpenMW mods, as well as MWSE Lua mods! Regardless of which platform your mod is designed to work with, all will be accepted!


Second, all submitted mods must be, at least for the most part, safe for work. Questionable content is acceptable so long as it isn't the entire mod, remember we have to showcase these and we can't showcase adult-themed mods on the channel!


Also, it should be pointed out that for larger mod projects, you can submit a demo or playable beta of your mod as part of the competition and it'll be perfectly acceptable. I do need to stress that it must absolutely be playable though. Any mod that crashes to desktop upon loading the game will not be considered.


In addition, we ask that all participating modders please only release a maximum of 5 mods per day, there were some issues in past years with mods immediately getting buried, and we want everyone to have a chance to have their mods get seen! Also, we won't be counting very quick CS edit mods as counting towards achievements, in order to encourage less spam.


Remember, this only applies to mods released in May, so let's all get to modding and make this the big 20th Anniversary that Morrowind truly deserves!

If you have any questions about this event, please leave a comment or send me a message!
