The island of Vvardenfell is one of six Imperial administrative districts of the Morrowind province. It serves as the setting for the game The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Vvardenfell is an island subcontinent located inside the bay-like Inner Sea and is almost completely surrounded by land except for its northern coast, which meets the Sea of Ghosts. The district is dominated by the great volcano, Red Mountain, that formed the island; the Inner Sea is likely to be a gigantic crater. The district is characterized by arid wastes, rocky highlands and coastal wetlands filled with unusual flora and fauna unique to Vvardenfell. Early in the Fourth Era, Vvardenfell was destroyed after the Ministry of Truth crashed into the city of Vivec, causing Red Mountain to erupt. Most of the island was covered in ash, forcing much of the population to leave for the island of Solstheim.
