Broken Tower Redoubt is a ruined fort occupied by Forsworn. There are three exterior zones controlled by the redoubt, the ground level exterior, the mid level exterior, and the top level exterior. There are two separate interior levels both named Broken Tower Redoubt, the ground level and the upper tower.
It lies along the road between Karthwasten and Rorikstead. It is a dangerous place, making travel between the two towns a hazardous undertaking. The guards of Markarth know this and will inform you of the danger, "Beware the region northeast, across the river. Forsworn have taken refuge in Broken Tower Redoubt and Red Eagle Redoubt."
Just past the western edge of the fort there are two blue mountain flowers, a purple mountain flower, and two juniper trees growing by a dirt path. The path leads to Liar's Retreat.

 Broken Tower Redoubt
 Zone 1: Ground Level Exterior
There is one Forsworn patrolling outside the fort on the road. There are another two Forsworn on the middle level exterior that will attack with bows. If they lose sight of you, they will descend through the ground floor and try to find you. There is a blue mountain flower growing by the door, and two purple mountain flowers growing near the western end of the fort.
 Zone 2: Ground Level
The ground floor door opens to a short twisting tunnel. After two turns it opens to a large room, with two Forsworn, one on the lower level and one on the higher level. There is a table to the left, and straight ahead is a small room with a potion of stamina on a barrel and fifteen bottles of Nord mead on a set of shelves. Opposite the first table is another with a lute on it. To the right of that table, in the darkness, is an adept-locked door leading to a storage room with thirteen bottles of Nord mead and a random potion on some shelves, another two bottles of mead on a barrel, and a chest.
From the main part of the room there are two sets of stairs. The one to the north has collapsed, but the one to the south is still intact. At the far end of the left-hand side is a Dibella statue, while to the right-hand side is a door leading further into the fort. There is not much to the next corridor, except for a spiked wall trap. There are two pressure plates either side of the trap, the first is hidden in some hay by two barrels on the approach, and the second is beside another two barrels around the corner, just before the end of the spiked wall located to the right.
After this is a corridor running in a semi-circle around a circular room. There is a Forsworn patrolling the corridor, which has two doors; one to the south that leads outside, and one to the east leading back to the main room. There are two beds and four bedrolls in the circular room. On the shelves to the left from the first entry is a copy of the Block skill book The Mirror, a potion of frenzy, a satchel, and an empty strong box. On the cupboard after that is a solution of enhanced stamina, which is worth over 1000 gold. By the end of the bed beside the cupboard is a box with some gold, a silver ring on it, and sometimes a random potion, and by the other bed is a novice-locked chest.
The corridor to the east leads back to main room, above the collapsed staircase. There is a table with a random potion, and a corridor leading, past another exit to the right (with a salt pile on a barrel next to it), to the base of the east tower. Around the base is a table with a salt pile and some shelves with some garlic and other food. Halfway up the stairs is a tripwire that activates some falling boulders. A Forsworn patrols this part of the stairs, and can be killed by triggering the tripwire at the appropriate point.
At the top of stairs is a room where another Forsworn waits. There are two beds in the room, and a table with some items of interest; a leveled potion of magicka and one each of jazbay grapes, venison, and tomato soup. There is another bowl of tomato soup on some shelves to the right of the entrance, and a chest by one of the beds. There are more stairs on the other side of the room leading up to a third exit, past a final Forsworn.
 Zone 3: Middle Level Exterior
The middle level of the exterior is guarded by two Forsworn, one to the east and one to the west. On the eastern side is a simple tent and bedroll. On the western side is a small camp, with a cooking pot, a grindstone, two hay piles and a table with three iron swords, an iron war axe, and a pair of iron boots.
 Zone 4: Top Level Exterior
The top level exterior is the only way to get to the top of the western tower. It is guarded by a single Forsworn and there are two tables; one with a hunting bow, and the other with a random leveled potion.
 Zone 5: Upper Tower
The top level of the tower contains a desecrated statue and shrine to Dibella, guarded by a Forsworn Briarheart, there is also a lightning rune in the middle of the room. The top level is split into the main chamber and a side bedroom. There is an expert-locked cell off the main room that is empty; the Briarheart carries a key that unlocks the cell.
There is a table to the left of the entrance that holds a decapitated skeever, a copy of the Conjuration skill book Liminal Bridges, two canis roots, and a potion of stamina. There are two leveled frost weakness poisons on the shelves beside that. There are seven snowberries and a bunch of jazbay grapes leading to the statue and shrine of Dibella.
The bedroom, located to the north, has a bed, a chest, a table, a cupboard and, an end table. On the table is a bowl of beef stew and a silver emerald necklace. On the cupboard is a potion of magicka, a canis root, and a sweet roll.
