Nightgate Inn is an inn located along the main road between Dawnstar and Windhelm.


Alongside the inn is a small lake with a sheltered pier. Its layout is typical of inns found throughout Skyrim. It has a large common room with a bar at one end and a large fire pit in the center. There are three bedrooms on the main floor with stairs leading down to a large cellar where there is another room that is being rented long-term by an OrcBalagog gro-Nolob.

The inn is owned by Hadring, who will tell the Dragonborn that the inn was built by his great-grandfather.

The inn seems lonely and sorrowful from the exterior, as the cold weather, frozen lake, and lack of life create a bleak setting. Inside is not much different; the only other patron, Fultheim, says, when asked why he drinks here, is "Where else would I go to drink?"


A False Front (Imperials)Edit

The Stormcloak Courier may come to this inn, and must either be robbed or killed in order to retrieve the StormCloak Documents [sic] [Do not change this to Stormcloak Documents. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.].

Recipe for DisasterEdit

The Listener must kill the Gourmet for the Dark Brotherhood.

Innkeeper RumorsEdit

Hadring can give bounty quests. Additionally, when Hadring is asked for a rumor, he gives an interesting piece of information that can start the Dragonborn off on the Dark Brotherhood questline.
