"Here the people seem friendly, but a strain shows in their eyes. Perhaps it is because of their proximity to the Dark Elven lands."
―In-game description[src]

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


Stormhold is connected to three settlements. To the north is Narsis in Morrowind, to the east is Tenmar Wall, to the south-southwest is Rockguard.



After the Eternal Champion retrieved the sixth piece of the Staff of Chaos in the Crypt of Hearts, Ria Silmane will contact the Champion and point them to the city of Stormhold and the Conclave of Baal. Priest Idolan Lancaster made a deal with the Champion where if they retrieved a tablet in the Vaults of Gemin, he would reveal the location of the piece. After retrieving the tablet from Gemin, Lancaster showed the way to Murkwood in central Black Marsh. The Champion found the seventh piece and continued their quest for the final piece of the Staff.


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