"The ashfall from the volcanoes of the Velothi Mountains and from great Ash Mountain itself is Stonefalls' bane and benefit, fertilizing the soil where the land isn't too arid to grow crops. It was here that the recent invading army from Akavir met its bloody end."
―Stonefalls Loading Screen[src]

Stonefalls is the volcanic wasteland located on the Morrowind mainland and across the southern coast of the Inner Sea. Stonefalls has seen it's fair share of war over the years making it a realm of the past.

DescriptionEdit

GeographyEdit

Daen SeethEdit

Stonefalls has lava spewing from all corners of the realm. This along with the twin volcanoes, makes Stonefalls a truly formidable ashland to not tread lightly on. The Daen Seeth region of Stonefalls has many notable locations including the grand port city of Davon's Watch and Ash Mountain, one of the twin volcanoes of Stonefalls. The town of Senie is located on the base of Ash Mountain, the massive crypt known as Othrenis is located west of Senie, and Fort Arand is located further west. The Daen Seeth coast is only viewable from Davon's Watch since Ash Mountain towers over the land. West of Davon's Watch is a war-torn area known as the Starved Plains. It was a site of an ancient battle during the time of the Chimer. Eastern Daen Seeth connects to the Argonian reserve known as Bal Foyen.

ZabamatEdit

The Zabamat region of Stonefalls is much more close to the sea than the majority of Daen Seeth. Zabamat's capital is the city of Ebonheart which rivals even the Dunmeri capital city of Mournhold. Out of all the regions in Stonefalls, Zabamat has seen a lot of battles throughout the years. Vivec's Antlers is a field of land-coral that was the site of a battle during the Second Akaviri Invasion led by Ada'Soom Dir-Kamal. The Sulfur Pools is a set of large pools filled with Sulfur that is used to preserve food and wine. Fort Virak in the northwest leads to the Rift in southeastern Skyrim. There are many settlements located in Zabamat's fertile land including Heimlyn Keep (a House Telvanni fort town), Lukiul Uxith (an assimilated Argonian village), and Hrogar's Hold (an expansive farmstead owned by Nords).

VaranisEdit

The Varanis region is more inland than the other regions in Stonefalls. Varanis' capital is the city of Kragenmoor which has traditionally been a House Dres until power shifted to House Hlaalu around 3E 427. The Tormented Spire is one of the twin volcanoes of Stonefalls and it's located east of Kragenmoor. The second largest settlement in Varanis is the Iliath Temple which is occupied by the Kagesh Tribe of Ashlanders. A large cavern known as the Fungal Grotto is home to an ancient daedric temple dedicated to Mephala, the Daedric Prince of murder, sex, and sin.

The Siege of Davon's WatchEdit

In the nearby Argonian reserve, Bal Foyen, the Daggerfall Covenant had attacked both the Bal Foyen Dockyards and Fort Zeren. The Covenant's next target was the city of Davon's Watch which is located west of Foyen. Luckily, the signal fires in Dhalmora were lit and the Watch was on high alert. The Ebonheart Pact commander stationed in the Watch was Holgunn One-Eye and he led the defense against the Covenant. House Indoril Grandmaster, Tanval Indoril was also leading the defense and came up with a very unorthodox solution of bring the skull of Nam Indoril to revive one of the Brothers of Strife, Balreth. Nam needed convincing to summon the demon and time to do so. He tasks the Vestige and his son, Garyn Indoril to delay the daggers on the shore westward by burning their siege weapons. In the House Indoril Crypt, Tanval was able to bring Balreth to life and he destroyed the Covenant armada in the Inner Sea. With the Covenant destroyed, the task is to now capture Balreth and seal him away before he can wreck the rest of Stonefalls.[1][2][3]

Sealing Balreth atop the Ashen SpireEdit

Balreth

Balreth of the Brothers of Strife.

During the time of the Chimer, a mage known Mavos Siloreth was the one who imprisoned the demon Balreth inside Ash Mountain and is the only one who knows how to do it. The Vestige traveled to Othrenis and communed with the ghost of Mavos. Siloreth used two Flame Atronachs to bind Balreth to the volcano. With this knowledge, the Vestige traveled to the base of Ash Mountain at the Pact Camp to meet with Holgunn and Walks-in-Ash of Senie. The three trek the fiery mountain and fought droves of daedra on the climb to the summit. After summoning and defeating the Atronachs, Blaze and Ragebinder, the three and Garyn Indoril fought Balreth at the mountain's core and sealed the Brother of Strife.[4][5][6][7]

The Second Battle of Vivec's AntlersEdit

The Covenant armada at Davon's Watch wasn't done. The remnants of the force moved westward towards the city of Ebonheart and the land-coral maze known as Vivec's Antlers. Covenant General, Alexandra Conele received Intel from Rhavil Urano about Balreth and Sadal, the Brothers of Strife. Conele planned on invading the Antlers to retrieve the Coral Heart, an artifact connected to the land-coral, to control Sadal. After Restoring Order in Ebonheart, the Vestige traveled to Vivec's Antlers to aid in the Second Battle of Vivec's Antlers. The two alliances had to deal with the local Dreugh in the area. The Vestige arrived on the scene and aided the Pact in the battle. The traveler saved multiple soldiers from the Dreugh and rescued Lieutenant Galyn at the Dagger's Point Invasion Camp. Conele ventured inside the Coral Heart Chamber and was followed by the Vestige and Sings-With-Reed. Reed decides to become one with the Coral Heart. Conele appears in front of the Vestige and battles them for the heart. In the end, Conele is defeated and Holgunn takes the Coral Heart.[8][9]

Retaking Fort VirakEdit

While the Second Battle of Vivec's Antlers was taking place, the Covenant led by General Serien advanced across the Zabamat region and captured the valued Fort Virak Stronghold, which is located on the Morrowind - Skyrim border to the Rift. The Virak walls were impregnable and Covenant necromancers used dead soldiers to fight the Pact at the southern wall. The Pact besieged endlessly on the wall to little success. The Vestige traveled across Zabamat to reach the battlefield. With the help of Holgunn One-Eye and Walks-in-Ash, the Pact traveled through the Virak catacombs to eventually reach the courtyard in Fort Virak. Serien locked himself inside Virak Keep while the Pact opened the north and south gates of Virak. After securing the courtyard, the Vestige, Holgunn, Tanval Indoril, and Garyn Indoril confronted Serien. During the fight, Serien murders Garyn and possess Tanval. Tanval is enraged over the death of Garyn. He takes the Coral Heart and flees to the Tormented Spire to release Sadal to destroy everything that led to his son's death.[10][11][12]
