Download Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Free!

Download Morrowind for free

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Elder Scrolls, Bethesda is giving away free downloads of Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I have such fond memories of this game. The spell creation and weapon enchantment mechanics took this game to the next level. You could fight any NPC in the game and interact with every item. To this day the citizens of Balmora can’t eat soup because my wizard Ticklefingers stole every single spoon in town.

According to their website:

On March 25, 1994, Bethesda Game Studios invited players to embark on a journey to the fantastical world of Tamriel.

25 years later, we still walk the path of The Elder Scrolls – now joined by tens of millions of incredible fans like you.

This week, we invite you to join us in celebrating the 25th Anniversary of The Elder Scrolls and the community that has made Tamriel their home with a whole quest log’s worth of special gifts, sales and more!

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind — Log in or sign up on Bethesda.net to redeem a free PC copy of Morrowind with the code TES25TH-MORROWIND. Act fast – this offer is only through Sunday, March 31! Visit here to redeem.
You can see the other deals and download your free copy of Elder Scrolls III: Morrowwind HERE.

According to Wizards.com:

You may have just heard about this announcement: DeNA is currently working on a D&D mobile game. Arena of War is a party-based battle game set within the Forgotten Realms—and it has a heavy emphasis on boss battles! Worldwide release is currently scheduled for late July.

Look for further news and information about this title on their site.

The game will be free and supported on both Apple products (Iphone and Ipad) and Android devices.

Should be cool.

Paizo reinvents the virtual tabletop to be played directly on Paizo.com!

Uses Paizo’s high, max resolution maps, handouts and everything you need to run our APs. Makes everything easy to connect with people and get playing. As long as you can get to Paizo.com you can play!

Edit: We’ve posted details on the announcement, some screenshots (including features that weren’t shown at the banquet), and more info about free play and paying for stuff.

It will be interesting to see how this turns out, as WotC has failed several times to achieve what one would think a simple task in the age of the video game.

Pathfinder Online

It would seem that Paizo is looking to throw their hat into the MMO ring with Pathfinder Online.They are funding the whole project through Kickstarter.

Check out the video and Kickstarter page here.

I hope they are successful and that it doesnt go the way of City of Heroes, Lord of the Rings Online, DDO, Conan, Star Trek…well you get the idea. MMO’s are a fickle mofo.
