"Narsis weaves it web of sleep upon all those who enter, for the Dark Elves of Narsis discourage visitors."
―Description in Arena[src]

Narsis is a large trading city situated in western Deshaan along Lake Hlaalu. Narsis is also known as the capital of the Great House Hlaalu. One of Narsis' most prominent citizens was a famed treasure hunter named Narsis Dren.[1]


The city is small compared to larger cities like Mournhold, Davon's Watch, or Vivec City. The city is contains a Hlaalu Kinhouse on the northern end of the city while it holds a couple houses and a market in the middle. The main road goes around the city next to the lake.


Merethic EraEdit

Narsis was one of the first settlements founded by Veloth the Pilgrim at his followers on their way to Resdayn. By then the city was originally named "Narsis-Where-All-Fervently-Praise-the-Prophet-Veloth" but was shortened down to simply Narsis.[2]

First EraEdit

During the War of the First Council, Chimer forces left the city of Narsis when Wulfharth's army was approaching the area from the westernmost bank of the Inner Sea, so they can rendezvous with their allies.[3]

Second EraEdit

Main article: Narsis (Online)

During the Alliance War, the Deshaan Countryside was infected by the Llodos Plague. The city of Narsis was then sealed off because of many of it's citizens have been vanishing including the Hlaalu Councilor. The Vestige arrived to Narsis and uncovered a Maulborn plot to spread the Llodos Plague into Narsis along with a Morag Tong Agent.

In 2E 559, House Hlaalu and House Dres warred against each other with a squad of combatants south of Narsis. Hlaalu wanted to set up an outpost in the disputed area, which is near the Black Marsh border. Dres mercenaries surrounded the guards at the outpost and a battle ensued. The guards were outnumbered and retreated to Narsis.[4]

Third EraEdit

Main article: Narsis (Arena)

During the Imperial Simulacrum, the Eternal Champion had at one point visited the city in their quest for a piece of the Staff of Chaos.

Fourth EraEdit

Some citizens from Vivec City fled to Narsis when the Ministry of Truth fell onto the city in 4E 5.[5]



  • Because it's the capital of House Hlaalu, Narsis is also named Hlaalu. The Morrowind Concept Map shows it as so.
  • When Arena was going to be a Tournament based game, Narsis' team was known as the Stormlords.[OOG 2]
