** Vivec is practically the god of fanfiction and has included author's notes in his sermons declaring some non-canon. Its hollowed state [[WMG could have been]] retconnec by Vivek himself as "untrue", or he could have forgotten that detail leading to a plot hole, and because this [[CrackFic is Vivec]], chances are all of these are both canon and "untrue" at the same time.

** Remember that the Dunmer and Argonians are [[FantasticRacism enemies]]. The Dunmer probably design their pilgrimages to screw with Argonians, and even if they didn't, they certainly aren't going to think, "Hmm, this particular spot should be altered to be less inconvenient to the one Argonian in 10,000 who decides to join the Temple and undertake pilgrimages relating to the Dunmer religion." At any case, the Dunmer are anything but politically correct.

** I can think of two possibilities. The first is that Morrowind's monarchy operates under election or appointment rather than family succession, and Helseth used his political connections to obtain the throne. The second is that Barenziah simply abdicated.

** Under Nerevar all Dunmer were made One House and One People. It's possible to interpret this as meaning that in the time of Nerevar there wasn't much cultural difference between the various Great Houses pre-Red Mountain, and the different schticks of the Great Houses developed after the Battle of Red Mountain.

** Alternately, since no other house bothers with Prophecy and Dreams, that may have been the purpose of the house. The only Dunmer who bother with this field at all in game are the Ashlanders, who may have been born from the dissolution of House Dagoth. Not all of them integrated into the other houses, and it's quite plausible that the others didn't leave Vardenfell.

* What was the original schtick of House Dagoth, you know, before it became "crazy Cthulhu cultists"? House Dagoth was once a normal Dunmer house. Every house has a schtick: for Redoran it's ProudWarriorRaceGuy, for Telvanni it's eccentric wizards, for Hlaalu it is IOwnThisTown, for Indoril it's religious fanatics, for Dres it's slaver plantation owners. House Dagoth's became "Cthulhu Fhtagn" in its modern incarnation. What was the original one? What was House Dagoth known for when they were just Chimer?

** According to Skyrim (''The Biography of Barenziah'' if you're interested) her husband was killed right before ''Arena'' when the Morrowind citizens revolted over the Empire's ridiculous new taxes. Afterwards she married King Eadwyre of Wayrest, becoming queen of Wayrest and abdicating the throne of Morrowind.

** Remember that the idea that the Nerevarine was to be an Outlander only becomes well known and popularized during the game. Before that, most (if not all) Incarnates were indeed Ashlanders, as is noted quite a few times.
