Ald Sotha is a Daedric Shrine dedicated to the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon and is located just northeast of the Telvanni Canton in Vivec City. The region is comprised of lush, green, well-watered southern lowlands where most of Vvardenfell's agriculture is sourced.[1]


During the First Era, Ald Sotha was the home of House Sotha. It was destroyed by Mehrunes Dagon and later rebuilt into a shrine in his honor.[2]


There are three levels to the ruins: the Upper Level, Lower Level, and the Shrine. leveled Dremora are present here, as well as several worshipers and some valuable items. The plan of the ruins is linear as the upper level only connects to the outside or to the lower level, the lower level only connects to the upper level and the shrine and the shrine only connects to the lower level.

Upper levelEdit

From the entrance, there are pathways to the left, the right and straight ahead. The pathways to the sides lead to dead ends with enemies but no loot. The path straight ahead forks into two, but both pathways lead to the Lower Level.

Lower levelEdit

The Lower Level is a fundamentally a large hallway with rooms on both ends. The room on the northeast-side contains one enemy, but little else of note. The room on the southwest, however, contains Severa Magia, a high-ranking member of the Dark Brotherhood and the target of the Morag Tong quest "Kill Severa Magia". She carries several of the Threads of the Webspinner: the Amulet of Sanguine Nimble Armor, Ring of Sanguine Fluid Evasion and Glove of Sanguine Swiftblade. There is a passageway in the middle of the hallway that leads to the shrine.


The Shrine is a single large room, with a statue of Mehrunes Dagon in the center. The Shoes of St. Rilms can be found here, in a chest behind the statue of Dagon. Llandrale Varam carries the Ring of Sanguine Red Wisdom, Ring of Sanguine Transcendence and Ring of Sanguine Transfiguring, all of which are Threads of the Webspinner.
