Nope, but there are some online maps that let you search for specific locations by name... I say there's no mod, but I could be wrong.

The whole point of Morrowind is to explore! I know Morrowind Overhaul has a mod that organizes the journal better, but it has no options of map markers or any of that.

The journal is fine (the updated journal, not the awful original one), I always felt. And Blake is right, if you ain't exploring, you ain't playing it right. I actually found the fast-travel system that was introduced in later games to detract from the experience. One of the many reasons Morrowind will always be my favourite.

It does. It's way more enjoyable walking the roads and finding where to go. I still sometimes take silt riders and mage teleports if I have to, but for the most part it's exploration.

That will happen a lot in Morrowind. I guess just watch for road signs and follow directions in the journal. Or find directions online and such.

I know what you mean. Sometimes I just resort to using one of those online maps, easily accessible via Steam overlay, I imagine. Didn't have any of those new-fangled overlays when I first went through the game, to it was all exit to desktop>look at map>restart game>continue to be lost.

the original game came with this map, maybe you can print it or have it open somewhere while you play morrowind.

Funny how people say that fast traveling ruined the Elder Scrolls and should be removed, because Arena and Daggerfall both had fast travel. Morrowind is the only one without it.

Arena and Daggerfall took place in a much bigger portion of Tamriel (in fact, Arena had the whole map) and the dungeons, towns etc were procedurally created. In Morrowind, they started to hand place everything, which made exploration much more important. So yeah, fast travel in Oblivion and Skyrim is a farce, because there are many things to explore. So it's pure nonsense to defend fast travel with the "before Morrowind" thesis. Also, fast travel may not necessarily ruin the series, but it sure lessens your experience.

This wiki has 'google maps' style maps that have more info about locations, quests, etc.

Just don't...i repeat....just don't. Seriously man, explore, learn, take your time and enjoy finding everything on your own. You won't regret it.

Morrowind has a fast travel system. The Silt Striders. And it worked perfectly. It was inherent in the game world, was fair, whilst offering the bonus of being more difficult to abuse than the later system, and most of all, wholly encouraged exploration. Vvardenfell is much smaller than any of the other Elder Scrolls settings, too, hence the need to have a fast travel option in the prior two games.

I'm not saying that any form of fast travel should be banned or anything like that, I just much prefer the way Morrowind offered it. Personal preference, of course.

There's the silt riders, mages guild, and all the teleportation scrolls. For the most part though, you have to know where everything is, which comes from exploration and such.
