In today’s episode, the Battle Bards crew row their dinghy to the island of Vvardenfell, where there is a rumor of the legend of the return of Morrowind. Yes, it’s a tour through Elder Scrolls Online’s first expansion soundtrack. Will it be enough to reverse a few negative opinions of the base MMO’s score? (spoiler: yes indeedy!)

Battle Bards is a biweekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

“A Land of War and Poetry” is not really that weird of tittle since it basically describes Vvardenfell which is where the “living god” Vivec resides. This is where the chapter takes place. He also known as the warrior poet. So it is pretty aptly name track.

Grazelands Dawn has quickly become my favourite track of the ESO Morrowind OST. I find myself sometimes simply hanging out in a town just so i can keep hearing it..
