* WordOfDante[=/=]WordOfSaintPaul: Some of the game developers have posted [[http://www.imperial-library.info/content/obscure-texts "obscure texts"]] on the official forums regarding a number of in-game topics and characters. They are generally regarded by the fandom as canon. Michael Kirkbride, in particular, wrote a number of them which fill in gaps around The Tribunal, Vivec, and the Dwemer.

* NewbieBoom: The six-year gap between ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall'' and ''Morrowind'' meant that ''Morrowind'' was the first game in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series for many fans. ''Morrowind'' was both a critical and commercial success, as well as one of the first major {{Western RPG}}s to be released on consoles, establishing the fanbase that would go on to make ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' even bigger hits.
* SequelGap: The six-year gap between ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' and ''Morrowind'' has been the longest between games in the main series to date, though by now the gap between ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' and ''The Elder Scrolls VI'' is gonna be even wider.
