"Riften bids you welcome. We call this our home. Let those who challenge be wary..."
―In-game description[src]

Riften is a city in the province of Skyrim. It is one of several possible locations that the Eternal Champion may discover in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.


Riften is connected to three settlements. To the east is Silgrad Tower in Morrowind, to the west is Greenwall, and to the north is Vernim Wood.


  • In earlier development, Arena was going to be a tournament-based game where each city had their own gladiatorial team. Riften's team was known as the Furies.[OOG 1]
