View of Cheydinhal looking northeast towards the castle
Cheydinhal is a city in eastern Cyrodiil whose architecture and culture contains heavy Dunmer influence due to its close proximity to Morrowind's border. Located in the foothills between the Valus and Jerall Mountains, Cheydinhal sits on the northeastern edge of the Nibenay Basin, a river valley of tributaries to Lake Rumare and the Niben River.
Cheydinhal consists of three districts: Cheydinhal Castle, Market, and Chapel. The dominating feature of the city is a tributary of the Corbolo River, which bisects the city from north to south. The river is crossed by three bridges: a single bridge to the north connects the Market district to the Chapel district, while two smaller bridges to the south connect the southwest plaza and Chapel via a small island park.
The Dark Brotherhood
The Dark Brotherhood resides in this city at the Abandoned House (see map). Rumor has it that Count Andel Indarys knows, but threats and bribes from the Dark Brotherhood have managed to keep him quiet. See Joining the Dark Brotherhood for more information.
† Inius Colus and Esbern are added as replacements if Gruiand Garrana or Hil the Tall are killed during Knights of the Nine.
‡ Kinther appears after Ohtesse dies during the Knights of the Nine.
