The Inn of Ill Omen is a tavern found along the Green Road, roughly halfway between the Imperial City and Bravil. It is southeast of Faregyl Inn, northeast of the Pothole Caverns and west of Harcane Grove.
The inn is a small building with two little rooms upstairs. It has a trap door that leads to the basement, where Rufio is found. Manheim Maulhand runs the inn and sells some food and drink and also rent out rooms for 10 a night.
- A Knife in the Dark – Lucien Lachance charges the Hero with killing Rufio to show their commitment to joining the Dark Brotherhood.
- A random Oblivion Gate will open near the inn, making the quest 'A Knife in the Dark' slightly harder to complete.
- If the Morag Tong Assassin from Sundercliff Watch escapes and survives, he will go to the Inn. However, he is hostile to all NPCs, meaning he will attack any he sees (including those in the inn) on sight.
