"Do not speak of it. Do not go there. Only the legions of the dead guard the walls now."




This is a mod that overhauls the Siege at Firemoth official plugin and makes it a legion-exclusive quest. I thought it was strange that the siege was considered a great disgrace to the legion and a matter of honour, but Sellus Gravius would sent the player on a mission with a bunch of hired mercenaries to liberate the fort.



This mod changes many aspects of the original plugin, including

  • The quest is now Legion exclusive: the player must be a Knight Bachelor of the Legion to accept this quest.
  • The mercenaries are now proper legionnaires, no more of the Legion hiring rando mercs to do their dirty work.
  • The lich boss Grurm is significantly easier, though will still be a tough fight.
  • The fort interrior has been optimised and made more logic-friendly; no more hidden doors in illogical places or huge empty halls filled with nothing but enemies.
  • The fort and mine are now repopulated by the Legion after your successful liberation. No longer will the fort sit abandoned
  • after you clear it out.
  • Several new areas have been added to the fort, including a bunkhouse where miners live in between shifts, and a new Census and Excise warehouse where contraband goods are kept in Legion custody and a clerk keeps tabs on them.
  • The Ward of Akavir is no longer removed from the game when you complete the quest, and will be availible to borrow when the player challenges Varus Vantinius for the position of the Knight of the Imperial Dragon, and can subsequently borrowed and returned once the player gets the position. Check with the fort priest in the barracks if you want to use the shield.
  • A player home in the upper chambers upon the fort's successful liberation. This includes several services, including a trader, trainer and bartender.

Some things I want to update later on include

  • New mesh for the Ward of Akavir and maybe unique enemies
  • Some commander duties for the player to do post liberation, or some other quests/events.
  • Unique rewards based on choices and surviving legionnaires.

This mod will also be part of my legion expansion mod coming out soon.


This mod is built on the original plugin, meaning you only need to download this mod. This means it's incompatible with the original mod, and any other Firemoth mod for that matter. This also includes the Unofficial Morrowind Official Plugins Patched mod, which has a patched version of Firemoth (Though Legion at the Siege of Firemoth also includes most of the same fixes anyway). A possible workaround would be to delete the Firemoth references from UMOPP, but I might try look into a patch for it.

This mod should be compatible with Tamriel Rebuilt.

What's New in Version 1.2   See changelog


  • New OAAB items! These include clutter, architecture and leveled list additions to Firemoth.
  • Inventories updated for various NPCs and creatures. Grurn will once again engage in combat with a sword and use the Ward of Akavir.
  • Updated dock clutter and arrangements.
  • Bunkhouse cellar now has a storeroom and bed for the chef.
  • The fort smith now has replenishing hammers
  • A new high level trainer has been added to the dungeon, and teaches skills relevant to the Legion artifacts that you can obtain (heavy armour, long blade, shield).
  • The beds in the ruined fort are now replaced with static versions so you can't have a quick nap on the upside-down bed.
  • The Firemoth region is no longer plagued with eternal thunderstorms, but chances are the weather is still going to be sufficiently bleak.
  • Several items also now have had their IDs updated with the 'imprm_' prefix.
  • The post liberation versions of the legionnaires you liberate the fort with now have normal skill levels.
  • The upper chambers have been completely revamped, and you can find quarters for yourself and other high ranking Legion knights as well as an office for the fort accountant.
  • The Great Hall has been readded! It has also been completely done up, and now has a kitchen and a commissary where you can buy and sell surplus items.
  • More skeletons have also been added. Tis the season

Unpack the .zip into your data files folder, or use a mod manger of your choice to install the mod. Once installed, enable the plugin in the Morrowind launcher or your mod manager.

Take note not to have any other Firemoth mods enabled, as this mod is not compatible with them and will likely conflict.

Thanks to abot for sharing a script to get the post-liberation banners working and Momo for his amazing crane resource!
Thanks also to DarkElfGuy for featuring the mod in Morrowind Modding Showcases!

Feel free to edit this mod as you like. I don't mind anyone editing and publishing the mod, just as long as it isn't a direct reupload of it.
