Areas of Vvardenfell controlled by Telvanni house (brown areas)
The wizard-lords of House Telvanni have traditionally isolated themselves, pursuing wisdom and mastery in solitude. But certain ambitious wizards-lords, their retainers, and clients have entered wholeheartedly into the competition to control and exploit Vvardenfell's land and resources, building towers and bases all along the eastern coast. According to Telvanni principles, the powerful define the standards of virtue. — Great Houses of Morrowind
"House Telvanni matches the disposition of my brother Sotha Sil -- iconoclastic, profane, unconventional."Vivec

House Telvanni is one of the Great Houses of Morrowind. It governs the Telvanni District of eastern Morrowind from the island city of Port Telvannis, and administers the eastern portion of the Vvardenfell District from its council seat in Sadrith Mora. The house comprises mainly highly egocentric and ambitious mages, and is known to many as the house of the master wizard. Here, it is common to rise through the ranks by eliminating or otherwise 'indisposing' other members. Of the Telvanni lords, only Master Aryon of Tel Vos - the youngest and newest councilor - seems able to look beyond the end of his own nose and at the concerns of other people; the rest want little more than to be left alone to their research and ambitions. The other members are similarly isolationist in outlook and do not intend to be presided over by any of the other institutions, predominantly the Guild of Mages.

The Telvanni, in general, do not interact with other Houses or Guilds, nor do they have many enemies save for Abolitionists and the Imperial Mages Guild. In the Second Era, they refused to join the Ebonheart Pact, much to the chagrin of the other houses. On the other hand, the Telvanni do not have the usual hatred of vampires that most other factions have, and some of their lords and Mouths are willing to speak to them; wizards do not fear vampires nearly as much as others do.

For more information, see the lore article.

[edit] Joining House Telvanni

To join House Telvanni, travel to Sadrith Mora and speak with the Mouths in the Telvanni Council Hall.

Normally, you can join only one Great House in the game, but there is a way in which you can join both House Telvanni and House Hlaalu. For details on how to do this see the Redoran or Telvanni and Hlaalu article.

It should be noted that House Telvanni is the only house in Morrowind to tolerate vampires and even let them join their ranks.

[edit] Expelled from House Telvanni

If you are expelled, you can make amends with anyone ranked Mouth or above, except Therana. You can rejoin as many times as needed.

[edit] Telvanni Master 'Bug'

The bug/feature occurs when you try to advance to the last rank in the House and are told you cannot. It is supposed to start when you advance from the rank of Wizard when speaking to Master Aryon (in Tel Vos), use topic Magister:

I can grant you the rank of Master now. That will give you an equal place on the Telvanni Council. But if you aspire to a higher claim, I can also grant you the title of Magister. By accepting the title of Magister, you are announcing that you deserve the title of Archmagister more than Gothren who currently holds that rank. Which will it be?

However, some people have mentioned that they have problems advancing to Archmagister even if they did not choose to have the one time advance to Master, which leaves them stuck at the rank of Magister. This problem comes from getting too many advancements. In particular, when you ask for advancement after you are a spellwright, but before you have recruited a Mouth, Master Aryon will promote you to Wizard. Then when you recruit your mouth, you'll be advanced to Master, and the game will assume you didn't want to be magister.

If you have the patch, an expansion, or Game of the Year Edition, there is a way around this. Speak to Aryon again (topic Magister again).

You have foresworn the title of Magister... But perhaps you have changed your mind. Will you fight Archmagister Gothren and claim the title as your own?

You should choose to fight Gothren, kill him, and return to Aryon to be named as the Archmagister.

The last option for those playing the PC version of the game is to use the console. Open the console using the ~ tilde key and enter the command: PCRaiseRank "Telvanni"
