The Armistice was a treaty signed between the Third Empire and Morrowind, resulting in Morrowind becoming a province of the Empire. Originally, the Dunmer had refused to join the Empire, but after a short military invasion, the treaty was hastily signed, with Vivec personally having negotiated with Tiber Septim for the terms. During the Fourth Era, the Armistice was considered "old", and its terms were believed to no longer be applied.
- Imperial Law and Great House Law coexist in the province.
- On occassion where Imperial and Great House Law conflict, the Armistice regulated the outcome, in favor of the Dunmer Great House government.
- Morrowind had the permission to define its own laws and customs.
- Slavery, while outlawed in the rest of the Empire, was legal and protected by local custom, the Great Houses, and thus, the Armistice.
- There would be a policy of noninterfention with the Tribunal Temple of Morrowind, including the validation of their religious beliefs.
- Vvardenfell would remain a Temple district, until the King of Morrowind revoked the term.
- Within Morrowind, necromancy was outlawed, and practicing it was punishable by death.
- A central authority would be formed in Morrowind, in the form of a monarch. The first monarch would be Barenziah and her consort, Symmachus.
