Morrowind Easter Egg

  • To find this Easter Egg, you’ll need to travel to the Soul Cairn in the Dawnguard DLC. You’ll be able to access the Soul Cairn with both factions after completing the quest “Chasing Echoes.”
  • In the Soul Cairn, take a look around and you might just stumble upon a character named Jiub. This lost soul is very special, and will offer you a side-quest with a unique reward.
  • Jiub is actually the same Jiub you met in the prison ship at the beginning of Morrowind. He’s the first NPC you speak to, and kicked off The Elder Scroll’s modern incarnations that launched them into such success.
  • The spirit of Jiub, will request for you to find the many lost pages of his opus around the Soul Cairn. If you read each page, they’ll reveal that Jiub became a saint after eradicated the Cliffracer menace in Morrowind.
  • For anyone that played Morrowind, Cliffracer enemies were a constant annoyance whenever travelling, and Jiub’s slaughter of the creatures is a sly nod to fans everywhere that wanted the monsters gone.
  • While wondering the Soul Cairn, you might also hear a spirit saying the words: “Death is but a door, and time is but a window; I’ll be back.” Any Ghostbuster fan should recognize these as the last words of Vigo the Carpathian.

    I have loved every version of the Elder Scrolls. I must say that to this day Morrowind is still my favorite.
    I am very impressed with Skyrim of course but I miss all the cool Magic that we could do in Morrowind.
    I miss Mark and Recall a lot. I really miss slowfall. And my God do I miss Levitate. So many hours wasted in Oblivion and Skyrim fight the side of a stupid rock. I really wish they would do something about this but I know they really do not want to. Honestly HOW HARD CAN IT BE TO PREVENT FIGHTING WHILE LEVITATED BETHESDA! Sorry I was ranting a bit.
