What is your favorite province/place?

Well, Morrowind has an unfair advantage, both in the detail it has been given by the devs and for the resultant passions it evokes in fans. Skyrim will undoughtedly come in second, for its recent fanfair and its appeal to Scandinavian cultural mythology. So I guess that means I'm voting for Blackmarsh.

Weird choices for a poll, as I'm rather partial to Elslwery and Hammerfell myself.  I guess for me its a toss up between Skyrim and Black Marsh.

Well, I just chose places at random. If you want, I can make it so that you can choose any province.

I'm going to have to go with Morrowind. The thought of living in a cozy little crabshell just brings a smile to my face.

Black Marsh is a fascinating place and home to some of the most interesting and anomalous creatures in Tamriel. It's legacy has gone relatively untouched since the Good Old Days.

Would probably be a tie between Morrowind and Black Marsh, as those are my two favorite races aswell. Obviously,can't help a huge nostalgic feeling for Skyrim, the first province I ever put foot upon ... Skyrim is also very beautiful and has some ass-kicking atmosphere. I have to add that I STILL haven't played Morrowind.

I would recommend Morrowind. It's the best one in the series, IMO.

Cyrodiil, if only for its description in the PGE1. I mean, who wouldn't want to visit the Imperial City when it's described as this:

"Whole neighborhoods rest on the jeweled bridges that connect the islands together. Gondolas and river-ships sail along the watery avenues of its flooded lower dwellings. Moth-priests walk by in a cloud of ancestors; House Guards hold exceptionally long daikatanas crossed at intersections, adorned with ribbons and dragon-flags; and the newly arrived Western legionnaires sweat in the humid air. The river mouth is tainted red from the tinmi soil of the shore, and river dragons rust their hides in its waters." - A Pocket Guide to the Empire and its Environs, First Edition

I've visited only Morrowind, Cyrodiil and Skyrim. Morrowind is, mostly, grim; Cyrodiil is... English country like; and Skyrim, breathtaking. I prefer the cold to the ashes and Cyrodiil looks too much like things I know already. So, Skyrim it'll be.

Sure some of it is, but think of the grandness of the Vivec City, or the coziness of the mud huts an crab-shell houses!

Also, the only place with ash is Solstheim, not Vvardenfell. Unless you are talking about it's state now.

I meant like the ENTIRE place. The Ashlands  make up only a portion of MW's awesomeness.

Morrowind is full of mud and slime, even if you disregard the dust.

I think my favourite province would probably Cyrodiil. But the place I love is the hold of Haafingar in Skyrim.

High Rock. Not entirely sure why, possibly because Daggerfall was the first TES game I played, and also because Breton culture fascinates me.

Either solsteim, Cyrodiil, or Vvardenfell

This is actually difficult, one side of me says: Black Marsh because it's full of mystery's and unexplored swamps. Another part of me says Morrowind for the the volcano's and traditions. And yet another part of says Cyrodiil since it's a little bit of everything, and of course for the Imperial City...

Mine has to be Elsweyr, the landscape and Khajiths are both equally amazing. To be honest it was the only reason I was excited for ESO.

Call me old fashioned but I love how simple and beautiful Cyrodiil is. However I'm fascinated with Valenwood and would love to see it in full detail. I adore the concept art I've seen of Valenwood, however I don't like what I've seen of it fleshed out in ESO. I feel like from what I've seen via screenshots and the like that it was really a dumbed version of what I've seen of the concept art and how I've imaged it myself.

So I say Cyrodiil, but once I see more of Valenwood I could gladly change my opinion.

To be really specific, there are definitely certain regions within Cyrodiil that I like more than others. The Colovian Highlands, Gold Coast, and West Weald is beautiful and I enjoy that area, but my favorite would have to be the Nibenay Basin and the Great Forest. While Cheydinhal is definitely my favorite town.

I just love that all of the cities draw influence from the provinces near them so each town in Cyrodiil is so vastly different. While even the Skyrim cities were drastically different, I just love how the architecture changes so drastically in Cyrodiil.

I’ve rambled enough about this at this point.
