Background[edit | edit source]
The lush island of Khenarthi's Roost is a place of calm beaches and tropical forests, and the area is dotted with moon sugar plantations. Native Khajiit fish in the Topal Sea here and tend marshy bamboo farms. Cultists with the power to command the fury of the sea lurk in the island's hidden caves and tide-swept grottoes. The nearby waters are patrolled by Maormer "enforcers" who are known to interrupt trading ships, while enforcing a treaty they made with the Khajiit many years ago.
The Kingdom of Pyandonea was outraged by the Aldmeri Dominion's attempt to win over the locals of Khenarthi's Roost, citing an ancient treaty that gives them ownership of the island. Any trading ships carrying cargo in violation of one of the treaty provisions must hand over their cargo to the Maormer or be taken prisoner. Despite the Dominion's attempts to find a peaceful solution, negotiations failed, bringing both sides closer to conflict. By working with the sea-cultists, the Maormer planned to use their command of the sea to expel the Dominion from Khenarthi's Roost.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- During the Beta version of Online, all Aldmeri Dominion members began their journey in Tamriel on this island. This was changed with the game's release, with it moving to Auridon, but a character named Sugar-Claws was added to give the option to travel to this zone immediately if so desired. It has since moved back to Khenarthi's Roost.
- Khenarthi is the name of the Khajiiti deity of the Winds. She is a variation on the Cyrodiilic and Bretony goddess Kynareth and the Nordic Kyne.
- Khenarthi's Roost is the only small-scale location in the Aldmeri Dominion, whereas the Ebonheart Pact and Daggerfall Covenant have two small-scale zones.
