* TheGreatWall: After a re-awakened Dagoth Ur and his minions ambushed the Tribunal and stole two of the Tools of Kagrenac during one of their annual pilgrimages to the Heart of Lorkhan, the Tribunal tried and fails to reclaim them. Despite their efforts, they were unable to destroy Dagoth Ur. So, in order to contain his spreading influence, they erected the Ghostfence around his Red Mountain stronghold. The Ghostfence isn't a solid wall, but a series of pylons connected by a force field. The force field was originally powered by the Tribunal's divine power. However, they weakened over time without access to the Heart, so they were forced to [[spoiler: use the [[PoweredByAForsakenChild souls of dead Dunmer]] as a suplemental power source]]. By the time of the game, only Vivec is still channeling his divine power into the Ghostfence, and, as a result, has withdrawn completely from the affairs of mortals.

Also, once you get the corprus cure, you still have the disease, minus any of the negative effects, meaning you no longer have to worry about getting any type of disease again.

* YouAreInCommandNow: Downplayed when [[spoiler: Caius is recalled to the Imperial City]], leaving you as the highest ranking Blade in Vvardenfell. Of course, since the other Blades agents mostly do their own things and any orders from Cyrodiil to the contrary are liable to come with an actual superior delivering them, Caius basically tells you to ignore the big picture and just keep doing what you're already doing.

* VoluntaryVassal: Having been cut off from their source of divine power by a resurrected Dagoth Ur, Vivec and the other Tribunes knew that they would not be able to fend off the legions of Tiber Septim, who were threatening to invade. So, Vivec met with Septim and offered Morrowind to join the Empire peacefully. In addition, he threw in [[HumongousMecha the Numidium]] and in return, got a number of concessions from the Empire that allowed Morrowind to keep its traditional institutions like the Tribunal Temple, Great House rule, and slavery.

* DisproportionateRetribution: So the Tribunal (and Dagoth Ur) used the Heart of Lorkhan against her will and (one or all of them) murdered her faithful follower Nerevar. In retaliation, she turns the skin of all the Dunmer people an ashen gray and turns their eyes to a blood red. She promises that Nerevar will be reincarnated to cast down the "false gods" of the Tribunal, which winds up happening later.

* OneRiotOneRanger: In order to fulfill the Nerevarine Prophesy, you need to be named the "Hortator" of the three Dunmeri Great Houses with holdings on Vvardenfell. A Hortator is a traditional Dunmer war-leader, implied to typically lead entire ''armies'' into battle. However, circumstances are such here that you will need to go into Red Mountain to face Dagoth Ur on your own. [[spoiler: Primarily, this is because you have been rendered immune to all disease (another requirement to meet the prophecy) while anyone you could bring along would risk catching a Blight disease, or worse, the Corprus Disease.]]
