"It is a family's most solemn duty to make sure their ancestor's remains are interred properly in a City of the Dead such as Necrom. Here the spirits draw comfort from one another against the chill of the mortal world."

Necrom is the eastern port of the realm[OOG 1] and the City of the Dead located along the Morrowind coastline. A common phrase to describe the length of Tamriel is "From Necrom to Daggerfall".[1]



Necrom is known as the city of the dead due to the city being the burial grounds of Morrowind's greatest warriors and finest citizens.[2] Necrom resembles a large necropolis with sacred walls and large white towers all around the city. To the west of the city is a cemetery with all sorts of ghouls.[3]


The city of Necrom is perched on steep yet treacherous cliffs on the Morrowind coastline. The cemetery is west to the city with a new monastery built in it.[3]

  • Necrom Beetle-Cheese Poutine – Made with Game, Potato, and Cheese.[5]


Merethic EraEdit

During the Merethic Era, Topal the Pilot sailed all over Tamriel and managed to chart the continent's sea lanes including the Niben River in Cyrodiil. Topal has sailed as far as the Telvanni Peninsula to the cliffsides where modern Necrom is located to the isle of Gorne of the Bat Lizard.[6]

First EraEdit

The city of Necrom existed during the time of the Four Score War. Sotha Sil and Almalexia stayed in the city while Vivec was at war.[7]

Second EraEdit

Before being the leader of the Aldmeri Dominion, Queen Ayrenn left her the Summerset Isles to travel all across Tamriel to seek the thrill of adventure. One of her exploits has her disguised as a Dark Elf in order to read the legendary Indigo Scrolls at the vaults of Necrom.[8]

During the Alliance War, the city of Necrom was occupied by the great House Telvanni. Slavers from Necrom arrived to High Rock to capture men, women, and children all across the Breton kingdoms of the Iliac Bay. Their journey eventually took them to Koeglin Village in Stormhaven, High Rock to capture the local civilians and return home with a new batch of slaves. Luckily, the Vestige arrived into town and drove the Telvanni Slavers out of High Rock.[9][10]

Third EraEdit

Main article: Necrom (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.

In 3E 427, the city of Necrom was under the control of the great House Dres.

Necrom's cemetery has been haunted for many years and it's citizens has come to except this. During the day, they bury their dead while at night, the malevolent spirits roam the expansive crypts. The Tribunal Temple had put up a bounty for anyone to take out the monsters at the cemetery. Three brave citizens ventured into the crypts, slew the Vampire residing, and claimed the bounty.[3]
