Sutch was a settlement located in the Gold Coast region of Cyrodiil. County Sutch extended north towards the Brena River, an area which is now considered part of County Kvatch. Sutch was connected to the Gold Road north of Anvil.[oog 1] Jorunn the Skald-King visited Sutch in his youth, some time between 2E 546 and 2E 572.
Thief of Virtue tells the tale of Ravius Terinus, a master thief of the Thieves Guild, who attempted to rob the coin collection of Baron Ignace from his castle in Sutch. Ravius failed to steal the coins, but instead slept with Baroness Veronique in order to hide from the guards. The book states that Sutch was a city in Hammerfell, although it is an unreliable source, as the author also believes the Thieves Guild to have been wiped out four hundred and fifty years prior to the book's writing.
By 3E 433, nothing remained of the settlement but the ruins of Fort Sutch Abbey. The fort was home to a band of mercenaries until their leader was poisoned by the Dark Brotherhood, although it was made to appear that he had died of a disease. The fort was attacked by Daedra during the Oblivion Crisis when an Oblivion Gate to the Deadlands opened outside its walls. This portal was destroyed by the Imperial Legion, with the help of the Hero of Kvatch.
