Duskglow Crevice

Duskglow Crevice is a small cave east of Fort Dunstad, occupied mainly by Falmer and chaurus. They are battling a few remaining bandits, and you will encounter several corpses of bandits and maybe even a vampire. The cave has only one zone: Duskglow Crevice.

[edit] Walkthrough

[edit] Exterior

The main path leading to this cave is off of the road between Dawnstar and Windhelm near the Weynon Stones heading north-northeast. It is also possible to approach from Fort Fellhammer. In front of the entrance is an extinguished campfire, several Falmer totems, and, immediately to the left, a patch of bleeding crown fungus.

[edit] Duskglow Crevice

The entrance leads directly into a natural tunnel that descends to the north. As you continue following the tunnel as it twists and turns you may overhear two bandits discussing the "cave people" who have been harassing and stealing from them. As you may have noticed by the chitinous decor, they are of course referring to the Falmer. There are several patches of both bleeding crown and fly amanita fungi throughout the cave system. Just before you emerge out into a ravine ledge there is a patch of white cap fungus. Opposite is another ledge where two Falmer are battling a lone bandit. Once they have dealt with the bandit, if they have been alerted to your presence they will immediately converge on you via a ledge they can drop down from the far side, but you are unable to jump up. There is a gated passage at the back of the opposite ledge, while the one-way ledge is your shortcut back out later.

A path descends on your left leading to a lower level that exits the ravine to the north. The passage is linear and eventually you reach a Falmer gate. Once past this the passage is filled with cobwebs and you will encounter a few skeevers and may find an occasional corpse. The passage continues to twist and turn, until you reach a point where the architecture changes to that typically found in Nord barrows. To your right is a throne with a large urn in front, to the right of a gap between to sections of Falmer fencing. Beyond this is a small Falmer encampment surrounding a small body of water. Two Falmer inhabit the camp, but there is nothing of interest in the water. The encampment consists of two Falmer tents, one to the north which contains a small fire and has a loose chaurus egg in a wooden bowl and a charred skeever hide on a flat rock in front, and the other to the west. The second tent contains an unlocked Falmer chest. There are two exits from this cave. The one to the northwest leads to a small cave containing a leveled chaurus, many chaurus egg sacs, a dead bandit, and in a stone bowl under a decapitated skeever is a skeever tail. The second exit is just to the right of the second tent.

The passage heads west and then turns to the south and opens into a cave with a leveled Falmer magic-user standing behind a flat-topped rock that's being used as an altar of sorts with the body of dead bandit in front beside a lit brazier and three loose chaurus eggs. On top of the rock is a Falmer sword, a random poison, and a filled random soul gem. Behind the rock at the back of the cave is an unlocked chest and a passage heading up to the west. At the top it turns south and enters a cave containing a leveled chaurus with many more egg sacs around the cave and the body of yet another dead bandit. The exit is to the east and continues to climb. After a couple of turns and just before it enters a room with more Nord barrow style architecture there is a tripwire that triggers a claw trap in front. On the right is a burial urn while in front are wooden stairs leading up to a balcony with another burial urn at the far end and a doorway into a larger room where a leveled Falmer and chaurus battle a bandit. This larger room is split into two levels. The lower level has more egg sacs, a broken cart with tomatoes scattered across the floor, and opposite where you enter is the gated doorway seen near the beginning of the cave system. To the southwest is a sarcophagus with two burial urns beside it.

On the right, stone stairs rise to the upper level, where the fight took place. On the front edge, to the left, is a burning brazier with a chain beside it that opens the gate below. There are three sets of shelves against the south wall the first holds a filled random soul gem, a random conjurer's potion, a random poison and many ruined books. The next has two rock warbler eggs on a shelf and the last has a copy of Mixed Unit Tactics, a pair of random boots, two pieces of firewood and various cheap crockery and clutter. There is a stone table beside a partition with a woodcutter's axe, a copy of the Pickpocket skill book Purloined Shadows, a random greatsword and helmet, a bottle of wine, a bottle of Black-Briar Mead, and a bowl of ectoplasm on top. Beside the table is a stone bowl on the ground containing four leeks and beside this is a basket containing two bunches of lavender.

Against the north wall are two sets of shelves. The first holds a piece of firewood, a cow hide and a corundum ingot, with a horse hide on the floor in front (see bugs) and a lute leaning against the side. The second holds a random helmet and lute. In the middle of the room is a campfire with a cooking pot on a stand beside it and by a stone pillar is a rack hanging from the ceiling holding a garlic braid and pheasant. Beside another pillar is an end table with a moth in a jar on top. Towards the rear of the room are several bone chimes hanging from the ceiling. Against the rear wall is an upright sarcophagus with a small, medium and large coin purse to the right and further to the right, on the ground is a bottle of Black-Briar Mead. To the left is a stone table with an unlocked Falmer chest, a copy of the Lockpicking skill book The Wolf Queen, v1, a common book, a ruby and flute on top.

Passing through the gate will bring you back to the ledge upon which you saw the battle between two Falmer and a bandit, overlooking the ravine. Follow the one-way ledge to drop down and retrace your steps back up the ice cave for a quick exit.
