As you step out of the office and into the middle-of-nowhere town of Seyda Neen, a warm atmosphere greets you. The world around you, consisting of strange trees and mushrooms, is like nothing you’ve ever seen before, but somehow that makes it all the more inviting. This is a world begging to be explored, one that you’ll spend a long while in. You’re not certain what lies ahead and you know it’ll be dangerous, but somehow, you have a feeling you’ll find great and wondrous things with the aid of your pleasant spirit and adamant curiosity. With a gentle, uplifting tune in your head, you set off.
That tune, called “Road Most Traveled,” was composed by Jeremy Soule and plays periodically throughout your travels in the world of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It’s certainly a varied piece, encompassing moods ranging from fantastical whimsey to eerie uncertainty, but the overall theme is one of excitement. It’s an optimistic track that perfectly fits the grand, ambitious journey that all players of Morrowind have planned for themselves the second they set foot in the game’s world.
