Bal Oyra is the municipal center of the northwestern tip of the Telvanni-controlled part of the mainland province of Morrowind, and as such, offers many services and comforts for city-dwellers, who are a colorful mix of race and class. Contouring the peninsula, Bal Oyra is very much a seaport town, walled, and complete with docks, a lighthouse and an imperial fort.
 Main Square
As Bal Oyra is built on a peninsula, the town's main thoroughfare is long and narrow, more akin to a boulevard. Entering under the stone arch of the Silt Strider port, you will pass the Keep on the left, with a Mages Guild Relay inside. Across the street is The Black Ogre Tavern, where Yersod, the proprietor, and Kevlin offer a bite to eat, and Pontius Golicus offers training.
Further up this boulevard, you will find a clothing store across from an armorer, and past them, across from a baker, you can barter with Jana Livia, a very well-equipped trader. Finally, the street will reach a dead end where the lighthouse stands at the edge of town.
Although Bal Oyra is completely surrounded by water, the walls surrounding the town and the gate-like arch and keep at the front of the town, as well as the closely packed buildings surrounding the main boulevard all contribute to a design that completely obscures the water, making one feel inland.
 The Keep
Main article: Bal Oyra, Keep
The Keep at Bal Oyra is the home of Tibera Rone, the seat of power in the town. Though only occupied by five individuals besides guards, this fort nevertheless manages to service a variety of needs of a Morrowind citizen, ranging from training, to the divine and arcane. The keep has a very large main section which connects to the curtain wall, which then provides access not only to the Guild Guide at the Mages Guild Relay, but also to the Dungeons. There, Jathenard can provide training as a Master-at-Arms, and watches over the sole prisoner, Lish gro-Garrok, who has gone on a hunger strike.
 The Black Ogre Tavern
Main article: The Black Ogre Tavern
This tavern is no small enterprise, offering not only some basic trading services, but even training. Make sure to stop by to complete the quests offered here.
On the ground floor, Kevlin mans one of the two bars, while Shabhi, a smuggler, is waiting for something by the stairs. Upstairs you will find storage and bedrooms, while the basement is where the main action is: Yersod at the second bar in the tavern is the publican, and he offers drinks and food; Joslin Stoinles is the local Nightblade on her break, and is an agent involved with catching spies; Dacinial is the local Healer; and Pontius Golicus is a Warrior who offers training for a price. At the foot of the stairs to the basement is a small storage room stocked with alcohol.
 The Elfmaid
The Elfmaid is a cargo ship that has been forced into port at Bal Oyra for repairs.
Her most recent voyage started in the city of Blacklight, where she took on a cargo of cloth and other supplies. From there she was supposed to sail to Tel Ouada and on to Llothanis. Unfortunately, she ran into difficulties off the island of Balvvarden and was damaged badly enough that she had to put into port.
The captain's cabin contains little of use, with only a chest containing weaponry and a copy of Hunted, Volume V of interest. In the hold there are containers filled with food and weapons, plus a couple of chests of gold and two crates containing moon sugar.
 Census and Excise Office
The Census and Excise Office in Bal Oyra is a relatively large enterprise, and successful too, judging by some of the furnishings. Gilara Renus, who greets you as you enter, is the local taxtaker and the representative of the Census and Excise Office. Sa'assa on the second floor is a local farmer who offers her small selection of harvest for trade. On the third floor, Cadal Taaldrun, a clerk, takes a break in the bedroom. But the basement is the place really worth a visit, that's where Ligrod gro-Muzar and Hradell are scheming for a "sweet" deal. There are also doors on the top and bottom floors to Jana Livia's store.
Old, musty and overgrown, this underfunded beacon lets passing ships know the location of the furthest point of the mainland. Gillas Llarethi, the lighthouse operator, seems to have taken up alchemy as a hobby, so make sure to check out his unguarded collection of alchemical loot at the top of the tower.
 Notable Figures
- Tibera Rone — The commander of the Keep and the seat of power in the town.
- Jana Livia — The local trader with many goods to offer.
 Getting there & around
Bal Oyra's standing in the region dictates it a central hub of trade and authority, which means that transportation to and from the town is of vital importance. In sight of this, Bal Oyra offers three different ways to come and go.
- At the entrance to the city is a Silt Strider port. Climb the left side of the arch and talk to Drenar Valeth for Strider transportation to Ranyon-ruhn and Tel Ouada.
- Hessei-Lig offers Guild Guide Relay service to the Mages Guild at Firewatch.
- Out at the docks, near The Elfmaid, is Viania Claeni, the local shipmaster. Her ship, the "Wild Wave" can carry you to Firewatch, Tel Ouada or Bahrammu for a small sum.
A certain 'Bal Oyra, Urgelian Manor' cell exists. It is a manor of a dark elf couple which never made it to the game. You can visit it when you type
coc 'Bal Oyra, Urgelian Manor' in the console when you're playing on the pc.
