Rahd was a Breton bandit whose corpse is located inside Liar's Retreat.


Rahd can be found dead in the final room of Liar's Retreat. His corpse is located on a table, apparently having been tortured and stabbed through the chest by the Falmer. He was the owner of The Longhammer, which can be found nestled near his corpse.

When leaving Liar's Retreat, it appears that he was the bartender for the bandits as those returning refer to him as 'The Longhammer' and request a drink, before realizing what has happened during their absence. This is also a possible explanation for to his attire not being that of a normal bandit, but rather a set of Clothes worn by most barkeepers in the game.

He evidently went down fighting, as evidenced by the presence of a dead Chaurus in the final room of Liar's Retreat. This is somewhat surprising, as he is only level 1, at which point in the game the insects are quite deadly.


  • His name and weapon are a reference to a character (named Rahd Longhammer) from the Penny Arcade/PvP/Wil Wheaton D&D game at PAX 2010.

  •  360   PS3   Rahd's corpse may not spawn along with the Longhammer, making the weapon impossible to obtain, and there will just be a falmer sword laying on the table. 
  •  PC   360   PS3   The Longhammer might spawn under the table. The Longhammer may still be visible, but the Dragonborn may need to crouch to be able to take it.
