So after going through yet another, playthrough of Morrowind. I join the Telvanni, and wondered what is the most popular great house?
This poll is before Hlaau is stripped of its great house title.

Also, left out of the Poll by my own fault is the sixth house

Here's a brief description of each...
Redoran The main focus of House Redoran is maintaining the traditions of the settled Dunmer and, more specifically, the way of the warrior. Due to this focus, the Tribunal Temple was a natural ally. There is also mutual respect between them and the Fighters Guild and Imperial Legion. They have less respect for the other Imperial institutions, such as the Mages Guild, the Thieves Guild, and the Imperial Cult religion.

Telvanni The house comprises mainly highly egocentric and ambitious mages, and is known to many as the house of the master wizard. Here, it was common to rise through the ranks by eliminating or otherwise 'indisposing' other members. Of the Telvanni lords, only Master Aryon of Tel Vos seemed able to look beyond the end of his own nose and at the concerns of other people; the rest wanted little more than to be left alone to their research and ambitions. The other members were similarly isolationist in outlook and did not intend to be presided over by any of the other institutions.

Dres House Dres is one of the Great Houses of Morrowind, with presence only on the mainland. It governed the Dres District of south-eastern Morrowind from the city of Tear. The district included the fertile Deshaan Plain, and bordered Indoril District and the swamps and marshes of Black Marsh. The Dres had a mainly rural but still very wealthy agrarian agricultural society, maintaining vast saltrice plantations on the plains and marshes surrounding Tear. The Dres were also the Dunmer that enslaved and shipped slaves to the other Great Houses, keeping thousands of captives, mostly Argonians, in their infamous slave-pens of Tear and the surrounding plantations.

Indoril House Indoril is one of the five Great Houses of the Dunmer. It governed the Indoril District in the heartland of Morrowind from the historic capital city of Almalexia. The Indoril were orthodox and conservative supporters of the Tribunal Temple and Temple authority, and have always held prominent positions within the Temple hierarchy. Throughout history, the fates of House Indoril and the Temple have been closely linked.

HlaaluThe House was largely concerned with business and diplomacy, seeking to strengthen ties with at times unconventional allies such as the Empire, and although profit was often a primary objective, traditional Hlaalu practice recognized the value of a good reputation over money. This was their great strength - they were fast talkers and intelligent traders - and their great liability; most Hlaalu were bribable, either with gold or with other favors, with their leaders as no exception. House Hlaalu retainers were also masters of thievery, sneaking, lock-picking, blackmailing and backstabbing, both literal and metaphorical. While some councilors were honest and fair, others were more under-handed and corrupt. However, House Hlaalu's most distinguishing characteristic was its willingness to live in harmony with the other races, setting it apart from the other, occasionally xenophobic, Dunmer Great Houses.

Dagoth House Dagoth is what remains of the ancient, defunct, Sixth Great House of the Chimer, headed by the demi-god Dagoth Ur. Their primary bases lay within Red Mountain, in the ancient Dwemer crater citadels.

My favourite Dunmer great house would be either Dres or Telvanii because they're both super corrupt and are slaver houses which in my opinion is interesting in TES universe (slavery itself not that those houses are supportive of slavery).

How about the Sixth House?


Who controls the Septim crown?
Who keeps the Allesian Heresy down?
We do, we do

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?
Who keeps the Dwemer under wraps?
We do, we do

I thought you, being an Argonian supporter and all, would hate the Redoran :P

Don't have an opinion because I haven't played Morrowind, but aren't they like political groups?

Well if I were to pick it would be the redoran. Dres and telvanni on the other hand...

Redoran only really protected themselves and blacklight, pretty much all of morrowind and Vvardenfell was invaded save the north west.

Cause they ain't mainstream and they're old school Dunmers! Makes them interesting!


But in the end they're all cool.
