Redesigning the Seyda Neen Lighthouse

Written by Twentyenginerunner

The lighthouse in Seyda Neen is one of the first unique buildings that players encounter when embarking on their adventure on the island of Vvardenfell. The structure plays a role in two early quests, and even those uninterested in pursuing these will probably climb it just to see the view of the game’s first  town from its highest accessible point.

Despite its status as a unique building that partially defines one of the most fondly-remembered places in Morrowind, the design of the lighthouse is something of an enigma. It does not really fit with either Imperial or Dunmer architecture. The strange, lopsided way in which the building is structured is also unbefitting for lighthouses, durable monoliths designed to withstand wind and waves.
