A Blocked Door is a quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon.



A problem at the mineEdit

Three days after establishing the mining site, the Nerevarine should speak with Carnius Magius, in Fort Frostmoth, to ask him about their next assignment. He will direct the Nerevarine to Falco Galenus in Raven Rock.

Once in Raven Rock, Falco will inform the Nerevarine that a local Nord, Hroldar the Strange, is blocking the mine entrance and preventing further progress in the development of the Raven Rock settlement. Falco goes on to ask the Hero to negotiate with the trouble-maker.

The strange HroldarEdit

During the conversation with Hroldar, the latter explains that these outlanders are destroying this land, which is sacred to his people, and that nothing will make him budge. After reporting this to Falco, he will order the Nerevarine to best him in a fist fight, no magic or weapons. Falco also asks to not kill Hroldar, if possible.

The fist fightEdit

Note: Depending on the Nerevarine's Hand-to-Hand skill, two dialogue options will appear with Falco, one informing him that they are are not good at fist-fights, the other asking permission to kill him. Killing him or besting him will not affect the quest outcome. At a low level the fight may go on for ever. With a hand-to-hand skill above 50, the fight will only last for a few punches.

After receiving a few hits, Hroldar stops the fight, and admit defeat. He then walks away. The Nerevarine must now speak with Falco, who sends them to Carnius, back in Fort Frostmoth, to receive the reward.
