Fort Dunstad is a fort south of Dawnstar. It features a fighting pit for skeevers, which is run by bandits. The interior has many cheese wheels and caged skeevers. The fighting pit is in the main chamber of the fort, with two cages above it controlled by a lever. The bandit chief is at the top of the prison, while the Fort Commander's Quarters are inhabited by a magic-wielding bandit. Upstairs, a Snow Bear's head can be found with a Goat Cheese Wedge inside its mouth. The The Stumbling Sabrecat inn is located inside Fort Dunstad's walls. It was run by Baral Sendu before he was killed.
