Challenge Bolvyn Venim is a House Redoran quest possibly available to the Nerevarine during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.


Athyn Sarethi told me to meet Bolvyn Venim in a duel. The winner will become the Archmaster of House Redoran.



Having garnered the support of the rest of the Redoran Council, the Nerevarine may speak with Athyn Sarethi about the topic of becoming Archmaster of the House. Sarethi will reveal that Bolvyn Venim will challenge the Nerevarine to an honorable duel as he believes that his position as Archmaster is underthreat. The Nerevarine must speak to Venim in his Manor to agree to the duel.

Duel to become ArchmasterEdit

The Nerevarine must meet Bolvyn Venim in the Arena Pit in Vivec. Upon entering the Arena, Bolvyn Venim will attack the Nerevarine. As Venim does not have any ranged weaponry, the Nerevarine can use a bow and arrows to defeat Venim from a distance. This duel is to the death, so once Venim has been honorably killed, the Nerevarine will be named Archmaster of Redoran by Sarethi.
