Winterhold Map 4E214 by DovahFahliil Winterhold Map 4E214 by DovahFahliil
This map was created around 214 by an unknown associate of Jarl Kaldar 'the builder' some time before he was named 'the builder'. Kaldar was an Imperial appointee after the end of the Stormcloak Rebellion. When the First Dragon Lord, Ruvaak'Se'Brom, then Ruvaak Wolf-Born, founded Black Dragon trading, Kaldar asked that the company would be based out of Winterhold. With the agreement, Winterhold's population exploded, and plans were rushed to accommodate. This map illustrates the result of the monumental effort spearheaded by Kaldar, Ruvaak, and the College of Winterhold.

Awesome! I'm guessing Winterhold looked something like this before the Sea of Ghosts claimed much of it as well? 
Really well made

Maybe, though considering the height of town and the College I'm not sure they would have had a port.

That's a very nice map, very good looking :) If I can make a remark, though, while I imagine very well that there would have been a Dunmer quarter in Winterhold, naming it "Vivec District" would have probably been badly seen by the Nords. Vivec fought closely against Ysmir two times, and contributed to his defeat and death each time. Ysmir being a Shezzarine, it would be quite insulting to name a district after a being who beat an aspect of Shor two times and tapped into his heart to become a god.

True, at the same time a large portion of the population at this point is dunmer, credited with the city's restoration, and since Winterhold was comprised of maybe a dozen or so nords, it's not outside the realm of possiblity that with a larger Dunmer population would receive preference. There would be of course backlash and resentment in surrounding area's of skyrim.

Well, even before the Great Collapse, the population was mostly composed of Nords, by 50% at least, we can expect. And after the Tribunal's demise, Oblivion Crisis, fall of the Ministry of Truth and eruption of Red Mountain, the Dunmer completely gave up their worship of the Tribunal, trashing them as blasphemous traitors and reclaiming their ancestral worship of the Daedra. So that would be another reason not to keep the name of Vivec anywhere.

I agree that with that understanding it would look wierd. But one aspect of my story, and the post skyrim universe I'm developing is that Black Dragon Trading does not stand on tradition and the popular view. I took a moment to think about the kind of dunmer that would be moving to winterhold at this time. They wouldn't be refugees, more likely they would be those who already live outside the social standard. The refugee boom has been over for some time across tamriel. Any refugee towns oustide morrowind would be established and conform to the social norm. So those who are able to move themselves and their families would be the ones who aren't as welcome in the standard of the society. 

And I'm making the assumption that though there was a great change, the tribunal was in power for a very long time, and even if they don't worship them as gods anymore, there still may be some hero worship among their more fringe population. That said, you make a good point.
