"To the east is the fiefdom of Gavaudon, which offers rich alluvial soil along the flood plains around the mouth of the Bjoulsae River. This attracts a hardy class of frontier farmers who can withstand the more inclement climate."
Flaccus Terentius[src]

Gavaudon is a region/fiefdom located in Stormhaven, High Rock along the Iliac Bay. The ruling capital of the entire region is Gavaudon City which is located on the western end of the region. The regional deity is Zenithar.

Skirmish in Shinji's Scarp[edit | edit source]

In 2E 582, the Ironhand Ogres from Wrothgar invaded the Gavaudon region through tunnels in the Wrothgarian Mountains. The Ogres captured the escarpment known as Shinji's Scarp leaving Wayrest and Wind Keep open for an attack. The Daggerfall Covenant sent in the Murtag Clan of Orsimer to quell the Ogres. General Godrun lead the clan in the battle. Abbot Durak of the Pariah Abbey in Menevia sent a mysterious warrior known as the Vestige to aid the Orcs at the Skirmish in Shinji's Scarp. The Vestige was sent into the battlefield by Godrun to defeat the Ogres and destroy their tunnel ways. With the Ogre threat gone, the Stormhaven region was saved.[1][2]

Vaermina and her Omen of Betrayal[edit | edit source]

Vaermina, the Daedric Prince of Dreams and Nightmares.

Vaermina, the Daedric Prince of Dreams and Nightmares has spread her influence in what is Azura territory. The Supernal Dreamers are a group of Vaermina worshippers that have spread their influence in Firebrand Keep in Alcaire and the At-Tura Estate in Menevia. Vaermina struck again when General Godrun fell into a deep slumber. The Vestige was sent into Godrun's Dream and defeated the Omen of Betrayal deep within his mind. The Vestige journeyed to the Weeping Giant landmark to seek aid from Azura. With Azura's help, the Vestige was strong enough to face Vaermina and the Supernal Dreamers.[3][4]
