I actually did after I saw your thread..got the same chance as you (above average)

I'm surprised at how minimal they were with the questionnaire

I really enjoyed Oblivion and completed it a long time ago. I only just started Skyrim yesterday and I am enjoying it so far. :-)

Just a question, what is the general life longevity of a Dunmer? Logic dictates that it would be as long or slightly less than an Altmer's 1000-2000 years, since they are a descendant race of the Aldmer.

I don't know, you'll have to google it or something. But that means that if they do live that long then the Nerevarine could still be alive on Akavir!

I really wish Morrowind would have included the Nerevarine's trip to Akavir.

@dragonball: it doesn't take a moderately ok gaming PC to play morrowind at max settings. I played it just fine on an integrated graphics card (meaning really sucky) except for when I went into a city in which case the frames per second suffers but as long as you look down and stay inside a building when in a city as much as possible then it's quite manageable. What's your computer's processor? That could provide some sort of clue as to what your graphics card will be like.


@Manly

I have *copies and pastes*:

AMD E-450 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.65 GHz

Hope that is what you were asking for :P

I'm no expert but that should run it just fine.

Actually looking at that more carefully you might not be able to run it. What year was your computer made and what was the approximate price range of it?

Also which HD Graphics card? Given the processor you may struggle. Also, god forbid you mod the game (then again, YMMV: I modded the everloving crap out of Morrowind and it fell to bits. I modded the everloving crap out of Oblivion and it's more stable than vanilla, which I don't understand, since I'm running about 200 of them.)

I did some digging, and found that Divath Fyr was 4000 years old at the time of TES III: Morrowind, and Queen Barenziah was about 500 at the time of her death. Divath Fyr, of course, was an incredibly powerful wizard, and used his magic to alter his lifespan. Queen Barenziah is a much more realistic example of how long a Dunmer can live. A Dunmer who is not a wizard, is healthy, and does not take many risks is generally taken by old age between 500-1000 years. This could imply that my character in Skyrim, Vided Nightfire, was alive and well during the Dagoth Ur Incident. I also found that a healthy Altmer non-wizard dies of old age between 1000-2000 years.

Barenziah eh? Supposing you read the unedited chronicles of The Real Barenziah, I'm surprised she even lived that long xD
