What would be the best way to insert images?[edit]

I’m trying to put some images for the quest section, but since each quest descriptions are just few line long whenever I try to insert images page style gets destroyed. I'm new to wiki thing and I don't know what to do. --MorrowindNub 15:35, 18 June 2007 (EDT)

I’m just going to add the mug shots of various NPCs at the very end of the quest page so when someone decides to expended the page they can easily find and use them. :) --MorrowindNub 21:19, 19 June 2007 (EDT)
I'm assuming you're actually asking about the edits you made to Morag Tong Writs ( took me a little while to figure out what you were referring to). If you'd like to add the images into each individual section, just add the tag {{NewLine}}, brackets and all, before the start of the next section. That will force the next section to be positioned below the image, instead of next to the image. --NepheleTalk 02:45, 28 June 2007 (EDT)


should we change all the quests into the quest link format.--Duncans pumpkin 03:57, 3 March 2007 (EST)

We're trying to decide on that. There's been a little discussion about it among a few editors. Right now, most of the pages would be so short, that it wouldn't be worth it to have separate pages for them. Of course, most of the quests could be made longer, but most of the editors have other projects at the moment. Hopefully it will happen in the future. Oh, and don't be shy about expanding them yourself! --Ratwar 10:44, 3 March 2007 (EST)
Well, I finally got sick of the way these quest links worked, but I didn't want to necessarily split them all up onto separate pages, so I came up with a compromise - categorized redirects which all point to the proper section of the Writs page. (This wasn't possible before the latest site upgrade allowed for mid-page redirects.) These can now be used with the Quest Link format like any other quests, and additionally the quests will now show up in the category pages with the rest of them. I think it's probably the best solution, so now all quests can be handled the same way, and these just happen to all be on one page. --TheRealLurlock Talk 23:29, 19 July 2007 (EDT)
Following the formatting of the Tribunal Temple quests, I finally arrived to the Morag Tong, and I can't help wondering if we should divide all the writs into separate quest pages to put in all the quest info (requirements, reward, stages, ID, etc.) and to encourage the expansion of the walkthroughs. Any thoughts? --DrPhoton 08:43, 2 October 2007 (EDT)

Did anyone else have this happen?[edit]

I had already killed the night mother in Ald Sotha when I joined the Morag Tong. As a result I wasn't able to do about 2/3 of the special duties that the guild master gives you. I went straight from A Contact in the Dark Brotherhood to the Grandmaster quest. I'm not sure if it was because I happened to choose the Ald Sotha dialogue option and so told him that I had killed her or if he already knew but in any case he wouldn't give me any of the other special duties quests.

Definition of Tong[edit]

I'm not sure if UESP wants this sort of content, but Tong in Chinese means "Meeting Hall", and Chinese gangs in San Francisco were called "Tongs". The Dunmer seem to draw from obvious Asian inspiration, so it may be something of note.

On a possibly related note, "mori" is Japanese for "woods." And "Morag Tong" is supposed to mean "Woodsmen's Guild." Paviel 20:43, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Attempting to join[edit]

When I tried joining, Eno Hlaalu answered me "Your skills are weak and your discipline is untempered. Still, you have found me, so perhaps I will let you ask again when you have something to offer." and bade me goodbye. I was wondering if this means that there is some gift with which I might join the Tong without meeting the faction requirements? Or was it just fancy talk for "Your skills suck"? In case you're wondering, I am using a mod that has stricter requirements for most guilds, that's probably why I only got this dialogue the last time I played since in plain Morrowind the requirements for joining are very, very low (as is the case with most other factions as well). But the answer given above is in vanilla Morrowind (just checked), although it would seem that it's impossible to even get this dialogue. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by meisterdeib (talkcontribs).

Yes, it means that you don't meet the faction requirements and that you should come back when your skills are sufficient that you can do useful work for the morag tong. In vanilla Morrowind, these values are set to speed=30 and agility=30, but you never see this dialogue because all characters have at least these attribute levels by default. This was probably a remnant of earlier versions which had more stringent requirements but significantly restricted what the player was able to do over the course of the game.

Incorrect quest description[edit]

How is disposition of other factions affected if player is in Morag Tong? 20:06, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Grandmaster Writs[edit]

I'm just a little uncertain with the wording here. It mentions in this article that one must complete the main quest before accepting these writs. I understand that some of these marks are necessary to the main quest, but can we do these quests if we don't intend to complete the main quest? Is it a warning for players who intend to play the main quest with their Morag Tong character (or Morag Tong quests with their main quest character, if you prefer) or wil the masters not offer you these writs until the game recognizes that Dagoth Ur is dead and gone? In other words, is the main quest a necessary prerequisite for the Grandmaster Writs, or do you just have to become grandmaster to activate these quests?

Source needed for "gray writs"?[edit]

I was skimming over this article, because despite thousands of hours in-game, even I need help remembering things lol. What I wanted to know is whether or not there is a source for these "gray writs" mentioned in the opening paragraph, something I've not heard of, and despite my best efforts, can't find a source for on the wiki. Is this legit or illegitimate information? -damon  xoxo 15:32, 15 December 2013 (GMT)

At least it can be found in the game data in a handful of locations (CSList example). --Alfwyn (talk) 16:17, 15 December 2013 (GMT)
(edit conflict) "The Morag Tong is an assassins guild sanctioned by the Empire to provide three varieties of execution: public executions, private executions, and House Wars executions. Constrained by ancient traditions and rigid codes of conduct, the Morag Tong only recruits candidates of proven skill and honor. Morag Tong only accepts legally approved contracts called 'writs,' but rumor hints at the execution of secret extralegal 'grey writs.' The Morag Tong is the sworn enemy of the Dark Brotherhood." - Artisa Arelas
Savants of the Temple say otherwise though, but they do confirm that the rumors exist. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 16:18, 15 December 2013 (GMT)
