"Although the East Empire Company originally founded Raven Rock, they turned the failing mining colony over to the dark elves at the beginning of the Fourth Era."

Raven Rock is a frontier town, located on the southern coast of Solstheim and is the capital of the island. It was originally a mining settlement built by the East Empire Company in the late Third Era. By 4E 201 it is a far cry from its former days. Due to the mines drying up and due to the waters being polluted from the ash coming out of the Red Mountain, the town has become one of beggars and the occasional sellswords with very few trading ships coming by to sell their supplies.

After the mass Dunmer migration in the early Fourth Era, it has taken on a heavy Dunmer influence in its architecture and culture. House Redoran is an established presence and their banners adorn the walls outside the town. It is policed by the Redoran guard, under the command of Captain Veleth.

It is the first location that the Dragonborn encounters upon traveling to the island of Solstheim on Gjalund Salt-Sage's ship, the Northern Maiden.


"Most of Raven Rock's original structures were leveled when the Red Mountain erupted in 4E 5. The Dunmer have largely rebuilt the town over the past two hundred years."

"Raven Rock Mine, once one of the most abundant sources of ebony in Morrowind, was shut down in 4E 170. This lead to a mass exodus from the town, cutting the population in half."
