The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind 10th Anniversary

Some may remember Morrowind. To me, it is THE best role playing game of all time, and certainly the best Elder Scrolls game.
Released on May 1, 2002, Morrowind still has a thriving modding community 10 years later. Some sites, such as Great House Fliggerty are making plans to celebrate Morrowind's 10th birthday. This includes a modding competition, where users can submit mods for the game in different categories. The winner of each judging category will win a currently unspecified prize.

From the announcement on GHF:

"May 1, 2002....a day that will live on in Elder Scrolls history!  For on this day, we were given The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

The 10th anniversary of the original release of Morrowind (and the Construction Set even!) is coming quickly.  At Great House Fliggerty we are not going to sit idly and let this momentous occasion pass by unheeded.  In fact, we have a slew of events planned!

You are hereby cordially invited to join our celebrations by entering the Morrowind Modding Tourney!

This competition will feature two primary categories: individual and collaboration.  Within each of these categories, there are 9 sub-categories:

  1. Weapons
  2. Armor
  3. Clothing
  4. Buildings
  5. Quests/Dialogue
  6. Companions
  7. Scripting
  8. Modeling/Texturing
  9. Humor

Oh, and don't worry if your submission doesn't fit cleanly inside one specific category...we'll figure it out!

Each sub-category will have a "Best Of" winner, and one final grand prize will be awarded.  We are still collecting the prizes, so there isn't a lot to say about them yet.  But we will assure you of one thing: a typical Morrowind fan will love them all!  We are working on something very special for the grand prize, and will announce it here as soon as it is finalized.

The submission deadline will be April 16th, 2012.  Details on how to enter a submission will be posted soon."

Do check it out, the modding competitions are always lots of fun. I owe quite a bit of my internet career to Fliggerty,  and I'd appreciate it if you show him some support.
