Type Morrowind Achievements
Points 50
Needed for Savior of Morrowind
Title Librarian
Furnishing(s) Vvardenfell Scale Model (collectible)
Find all 30 ancestral tombs in Vvardenfell, make a rubbing of the information they contain, and deliver these rubbings to Librarian Bradyn to discover the location of the lost Library of Andule.

Ancestral Tombs Hunter is awarded for finding each of the 30 ancestral tomb plaques in Vvardenfell and completing the miniature replica of the island.

Bradyn will direct you to the first tomb as part of the introductory quest The Ancestral Tombs. Rubbings can be collected prior to starting this quest, but it must be completed in order to begin handing them in. Note that unlike most quest items, these rubbings will take up space in your inventory until you turn them in. After turning all 30 in, Bradyn will offer the Lost Library quest before the collectible furniture is earned.

  • This is a prerequisite for the quest The Lost Library. The Vvardenfell Scale Model earned upon completing this quest line (the first time) is a Collectible, similar to trophies. This means that it does not take space in your inventory, can be installed in multiple homes simultaneously, and is available to all of your characters as soon as it is first earned. The Model is unique in that it does not count against any of item limits, though there is a limit of one per house.
  • The description of the platform achievement of the same name states that you have discovered and explored the library. However, the achievement is unlocked upon just completing the replica of the island, before venturing to the library.
