"May the road favor the foolish..."

Grogmar gro-Burzag is an Orsimer miner who resides at Odfel's House in the town of Shor's Stone. He works during the day in the Redbelly Mine.

He is temporarily staying with Odfel, a fellow miner, because his own house has not been built yet.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

He will pay the Dragonborn for mining Iron Ore for him.

Orc Strongholds[edit | edit source]

If the quest "Mine or Yours" is completed, Grogmar will send word that the Dragonborn is a friend of the Orcs, and thus grant them access to the Orc Strongholds scattered throughout Skyrim.

Conversations[edit | edit source]

Filnjar[edit | edit source]

Grogmar: "I've been cracking rock ever since I've been able to hold a pickaxe and I'm telling you, this mine is drying up."
Filnjar: "And I'm telling you, you're wrong."
Grogmar: "What makes you so sure? What if I'm right?"
Filnjar: "I know there's ore still in there, I can smell it. You think you're right, you can pack up and leave any time you like."

Odfel[edit | edit source]

Odfel: "All I'm asking is that you clean up once and a while. How you can find anything in your half of the house is beyond me."
Grogmar: "I'd rather spend more time in the mine hauling up iron than doing woman's work keeping the house clean."
Odfel: "I'll have you know that I can haul up just as much iron as you in a day and still manage to clean up my messes."
Grogmar: "You think so, huh? Maybe you'd like to put some Septims behind that boast."
Odfel: "You have yourself a bet."

Sylgja[edit | edit source]

Grogmar: "I've been watching the way you mine and I have to say, I'm very impressed."
Sylgja: "I owe it all to my father who started me swinging the pickaxe when I was a barefoot little girl."
Grogmar: "Well, it shows. Your skill rivals some of the greatest miners I've known."
Sylgja: "Thank you. It's nice to know someone admires me for more than just my appearance."
