"I wish for you to activate the machine, make it to create ashstorms in Mournhold. Then these heretics will know the power of Almalexia"

Karstanghz-Beharn is a Dwemer machine that controls the weather of Mournhold, found in The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal.


Karstanghz-Beharn, loosely translates to the "Weather Witch",[1] was believed to be a myth until the opening of Bamz-Amschend in the center of the Plaza Brindisi Dorom, when the statue of Almalexia and Mehrunes Dagon was destroyed during "An Attack on Mournhold".[2] The device was created by the Dwemer, when, at the height of their civilization, they sought to control the weather, to create rain in times of droughts.[1]

The Nerevarine powering the machine

The device is located in the Skybreak Gallery of the Dwemer ruins of Bamz-Amschend under Mournhold. When the device is activated with a powered dwemer coherer it controls the weather of the city of Mournhold. There are three levers next to it, facing a large rectangular hole in the wall of the Skybreak Gallery, where the depictions of different weathers can be seen. These depictions shift depending how the levers are positioned.
