Morrowind LP: Yea or Nay?

Alright fellas, I'm in dire need of direction.

I've always been a writer. From poetry to prose, I adore writing anything and everything. Even when I was still in school, I was the only kid in class that enjoyed writing essays. I've always had a vivid imagination, a wide vocabulary and a wicked penchant for mythology or lore.

But I'm also a nasty procrastinator. Ah, the story unfolds.

My countless attempts to put my crazy imagination into book form have always ended in unarguable vain. Even my many attempts at writing short stories, or episodic style series have ended with little to show for my work. Lately, I haven't even tried anything because I've lacked inspiration and faith.

And this, my friends, is hopefully where you come into play. I recently discovered through EarthboundX exactly what a "Let's Play" is. I had never heard of them before, but I liked the idea behind them. I even did a little more digging, watching quite a few on Youtube. I learned quickly that they were often casual in nature.

So I had an idea. A Let's Play with a twist of sorts. I've always been a huge fan of Morrowind (The Elder Scrolls III). Not only the story or open-world style of game play, but I had a deep appreciation for the incredible lore that laid behind the game's foregrounds. I still have my map of Morrowind from the GotY edition pinned up on my wall.

I got this crazy notion that with the right inspiration (Morrowind), and the faith and drive to continue writing (You guys, hopefully), I could take another shot at this whole writing thing.

Here's my plan:
Much like a Let's Play, it's going to consist of my uploading screenshots of Morrowind gameplay that I've taken myself. Unlike a (typical) Let's Play, the screenies will be accompanied by several paragraph long short stories chronicling the characters story. Totally original, involving original characters, original insights into Morrowind Lore, and more. The point is that even if you don't enjoy or know about Morrowind, it wouldn't matter because it'd be more like reading an episodic style mini-series.

So, I need to know who'd be interested in these. I will admit, I am vain, and I dislike doing things that end up being appreciated by no one but myself. So before I even start, I'd like to know who would be following the story.

Please leave your questions or comments.

Much obliged,

sorry i dont know morrowind i only play fps. but i think waht wud be funny is short machinima like clips of that game since its open worlld there wud be many possibilities for laughs
It sounds good, i think the idea would be aprreciated by most people though Mr. Vain = P
I'd definitely follow it. That's a great idea- go for it!
here Here!
Go for it, I've love to see a LPs of that game. Free feel to nudge the pics to me.
I'd follow along and read you tales. =D
I share your pain in procrastination and just started playing Morrowind again, so you can count me in.
Thanks for your support everyone. I've since begun production on the prologue, and I optimistically plan on posting it in the next 24 hours. Expect a nudge.
will it follow Morrowind lore and take place in Vvardenfell or just using it as a setting ? i feel you on the LP i am creative but when i write any thing it becomes a HUGE mess and ideas collide. i admire any one with a great writing ability and able to put it down but thats why i just read and play the games. i would be intrested in at least giving it a gander. BTW Tot i got my map from GotY on my wall still too.
It is very much based around Morrowind lore, and does in fact take place in Vvardenfell. It takes place before the actual game, though. The story, does, I mean. It's like a prequel to Morrowind. Yeah, it're more of a fanfic than an LP but whatever. I have the first one posted.
I also suffer from the "Creative Procratination" and can see what it is you're trying to do. I loved Morrowind and would be super interested in following something like this. SIGN ME UP!
sounds like a good idea.. morrowind is good stories are good creativity is good ya cant go wrong here really
Not only do I think that this is an awesome idea, and would totally love to read something like this, but I also think that if you're really going to do this, then I'm going to pass the word around to at least a couple people.
