"City got attacked once by those damn bandits, come east across the lake, from Faldar's Tooth. They won't be trying that again."
Riften Guard[src]

Faldar's Tooth is a fort occupied by some leveled bandits. Northwest from the major city of Riften. The fort's main use is as a gambling center for Wolf fights. There are several caged wolves throughout the fort, all of which are hostile if released. Near the far end of the fort is a cage for the wolf fights, where there are several bandits watching and cheering. There is also a locked bettor's room near the cage with gold to pick up. Dog meat is abundant; the Cook's Journal explains that the fort's chef was forced to use dog meat to feed the other bandits.
