I'm trying to clear my backlog of old and never finished Entries, so here's the next one. We only have an Entry about Morrowind on h2g2 and I thought this series really deserves a place here. I started playing Morrowind a very long time ago, never got very far but still loved it. One of the ebst game series ever.

Thanks again to Sasha for fixing this Entry after Pliny has made it disappear last evening.

I've not played these games and I'll have a re-read again later on, but I enjoyed reading this and found it easy to visualise and get a rough idea of the games.
My initial questions were whether the correct spelling was Aethernius or Aetherius?
Also, you've mentioned that Terry Pratchett both influenced the game and was influenced in return. We learn that Terry Pratchett developed a character called 'Vilja' (Is that a villager character?) but exactly what influence did the game series have on 'Snuff'?

I made some small changes, I hope things are clearer now.

Thanks for writing about this, Tav - I enjoyed the detective work to fix the bug, and I enjoyed reading the Entry at the same time smiley - biggrin

I haven't played these games, either, but I can visualise them well from your descriptions smiley - ok

I like your concluding paragraph, but if you changed the order of the two sentences, to end on the positive note of 'trying different things', that would be superb smiley - ok
