Twilight Sepulcher is an ancient Nordic tomb located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The Twilight Sepulcher is in Falkreath Hold, on its western border. It is quite lonely and mysterious as it is not near any other locations and is one of few Nordic ruins in that Hold.

HistoryEdit

The Sepulcher is home to the EbonmereNocturnal's portal to the Evergloam and the resting place for the Skeleton Key. This is the entrance to Pilgrim's Path, a maze of enemies and barriers guarding the Sepulcher. It consists of two parts: Twilight Sepulcher and Twilight Sepulcher Inner Sanctum. The Sepulcher is locked until the quest Darkness Returns is started.

QuestsEdit

Darkness ReturnsEdit

The Dragonborn is sent to the Twilight Sepulcher as part of the Thieves Guild quest to return the Skeleton Key to Nocturnal.

Notable itemsEdit

  • A "vacant beehive" can be found to the right of the entrance into the Sepulcher. It contains some bees and a beehusk.
  • Lockpicking skill book - Proper Lock Design - On a table in a pit with water/shelves/decorations.
  • Sneak skill book - Sacred Witness - In the same area as the lockpicking skill book.

TriviaEdit

  • When Karliah is spoken to, after the Skeleton Key is put back in the Ebonmere, she will have a large assortment of arrows in her inventory.
  • Followers are not able to enter the Twilight Sepulcher, as it is exclusive to Nightingales. However, conjured beings can be summoned while in it.
  • After completing Darkness Returns, the Dragonborn can return to the Inner Sanctum to change Nightingale powers.
  • Even though it is marked as being a tomb, it is quite unlike most Nordic Tombs in that it contains no Draugr.
