1. No horses. Dunmer consider them a delicacy and they cannot survive in the ashlands.

2. Bloodmoon had some throwing axes I think. I know there are throwing axes but not exactly sure where they came from. There are also throwing spears.

3. Atmosphere, less hand holding, and everything is hand placed are common reasons given for the preference.

4. Do not make super strong Fortify Health potions and drink them. You will die hours later and wonder what is going on. Get the Morrowind Code Patch & Unofficial patch to fix even more bugs/annoyances. You can find them at Morrowind Nexus and Planet Elder Scrolls.
The ruling king is armored head to toe in brilliant flame. He is redeemed by each act he undertakes. His death is only a diagram back to the waking world.

1. No horses or any other mounts. No fast travel from anywhere to anywhere either. But there are silt striders (you'll know 'em when you see 'em) and boats that can fast travel between designated towns, several teleport spells, levitation (!) and a few more means of faster-than-normal travel.

2. Dunno what mods these guys were smoking, but the only throwing weapons in vanilla Morrowind are knives, stars and darts. And for the most part, there aren't really many of them you can find. At least there are crossbows!

3. Morrowind is closer to classic CRPGs, with lots of things to learn, study and master. It might be hard to just jump in and start playing, but once you see what this game has to offer you won't ever regret all the time you'll invest in it. Also, I second a fully hand-made world. Yes, everything out there was hand-placed where it is, even in the wilderness outside of cities and dungeons. Not to say there are no random enemies and loot, but those were hand-placed as well.

3D is a fad, realistic graphics are a waste of resources.

1. No horses, darn it.

2. No, but you can mod them in. There ARE darts and throwing knives.

3. More flexibility.

4. You'll be told, "Talk to everybody." They're not kidding. You can learn a lot, and you'll also get some quests that way.
Don't kill NPCs indiscriminately. You may need that character later on.
I no longer recommend using the unofficial patch, because it changes many things that shouldn't be changed. For most of the things that should be changed, there are older mods that address these issues separately. However, the code patch is very useful.
Except for one quest in Bloodmoon, there's no time limit on any quest, so if you find one too difficult, leave it and come back to it when your character is stronger.
Have fun!

1. No.
2. No, but there are other throwing weapons.
3. More political intrigue, more content such as fleshed out guilds and better character creation that allows you to create any character you can imagine, a fleshed out world full of atmosphere, and a believable world. Its world is less procedurally generated.
4. If you get in a fight too difficult, don't be afraid to run away or reload. Save often.

Hey chocolatl can you expand on your reason of not using the unofficial patch? I just automatically installed it because it seem like it was what most people preferred but if I know the con's then maybe I ought to try without it.

If you want to use the unofficial patch without the questionable changes, just grab ThePal's version instead of the Patch Project's. That's how I do it.

You want a tip?

Get a decent Command Humanoid spell (maybe enchant it on something) as npcs can be annoying as f*** and just crowd around a doorway and just sit there and pretty much never move. Although, I have used the Boots of Blinding Speed and jumping to just glitch past them, but Command is so much easier to just move them the hell out of the way.

Why not just use the RA console command?

There's also a mod that you can use to ask them to move.
