After the Eternal Champion had retrieved the first piece of the Staff of Chaos in Fang Lair. Ria Silmane will contact the champion and point them to the city of Winterhold in Skyrim. Thelen Kaarn offers the champion a proposition where if they can retrieve a missing tablet in the Fortress of Ice, then he'll show where the piece of the staff is located. After finding the tablet, Kaarn points the champion to the Labyrinthian.


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