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


When humans were still in a primitive state, Khajiit caravans already reached as far as what is Rimmen today.[1]. During the Interregnum, Akaviri refugees fled to and possibly founded Rimmen from Attrebus, a short-lived pretender to the Imperial throne. As they were settled at the border of Elsweyr, those people became known as the "Rim Men". Later they allied with the Cyrodiilics in a war against the Kamal, in a bid to reunite the Empire, but eventually they had to submit to the Mane again. In 2E 812 they seceded yet again, only to resubmit yet again later as a vassal kingdom.[2]

At the end of the Second Era, Tiber Septim annexed a swath of Elsweyr border land, including Rimmen, and cleared it of all Khajiits. Near the city he built the Halls of Colossus in order to assemble Numidium. As a result, the area is said to be "poisoned glow-rock".[OOG 1] Also during the Second Era, it was known that a group known as the Jovial Lambasters worshiped the Daedric Prince Clavicus Vile from this city.[3]

In the Third Era and Fourth Era, a song about a ball given by the Queen and Rimmen and her consort is sung.[4]

In the early Fourth Era, Rimmen is relatively stable under the rule of a Potentate, despite civil war breaking out in Elsweyr. It is also the only place in Eastern Elsweyr friendly to humans.[5]

Its current status is unknown, though it can be assumed it was absorbed by the Aldmeri Dominion together with the rest of Elsweyr.
