Raider's Nest is a network of tunnels and rooms filled with raiders. It can only be accessed from Dragonfields.
It is divided into red, blue and gold sections each of which have their own leader, and each of whom nurses a grudge against one of the others. The red section lies in the northeast; blue in the northwest and gold in the southwest. Each section is protected by a gate that is opened by a unique amulet corresponding to the section's color. In addition to opening its respective section, the amulet prevents the holder from being attacked by the section's patrol creatures, although they can be attacked if desired.
The yellow section also harbors an NPC named Eglar, who holds one of the eleven Shadowkeys. The key opens two Shadow Gates in the level. One guards most of the southeast of the level while the other unlocks a room containing a single chest. Opening the chest grants a choice of artifacts: the Magicka Edge Axe or the Spell Jewel.
