The Orc Raids is a Knight Order quest available during the events of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. The Agent is called, by their Knight Order, to destroy the leadership of another group of Orcish raiders guilty of pillaging the trade caravans.


After completing several quests for one of the ten Knight Orders of the Iliac Bay, the Agent will be accepted into said Order. From that point on they will have to make their way up the internal rank ladder to gain more lucrative and noteworthy quests, to improve their reputation.



Having enhanced their reputation within a Knight Order to the equivalent of a "Keeper", the Agent will be told of another marauding set of Orcs. One of the Order's Questers states that these Orcish raiders are being led by a Warlord, and have been poaching on the trade caravans travelling through the region. The Agent is duly sent to remove their leader from the mortal realm.

Raiders of the RegionEdit

The Warlord, and his raiders, are to be found in a nearby dungeon, as identified by the Quester. The Agent must enter said dungeon to track down the leader, fighting their way through the Warlord's minions, as well as a fair number of random creatures and humanoids. The Warlord himself will be found somewhere within, its death being the ultimate aim of the quest.

Once the Warlord has been slain, confirmed by a notification, the Agent may continue to kill the Orcs, or make their escape. Either way, the Agent must return to the Quester before the time limit expires to complete the quest.


The Agent will not receive any physical reward for completing the quest successfully, but will instead get a huge boost to their reputation within the region. The penalties for failing the quest remain true to a usual quest:

Faction Reputation
Knight Order +5
Specific Knight Order +15
Region +10
Nobles of Region +5
Peasant of Region +5
Other Factions +5
Faction Reputation
Knight Order -2
Specific Knight Order -2
