The Morrowind Prophecies is the official strategy guide for TES III: Morrowind, written by Peter Olafson and published by Bethesda Softworks. Traditionally, strategy guides were outsourced to third party companies such as Prima Games, however, Bethesda decided to publish the guide in-house with the help of game journalist Pete Olafson.

There are two editions of the guide; the original covers only Morrowind, while the Game of the Year edition has new sections on its expansion packs, Tribunal and Bloodmoon. A digital scan of the GotY edition comes with the GOG release of Morrowind.
