Rotheran is a Dunmer Stronghold in the region of Sheogorad. The stronghold is split into four subsections: the exterior, Propylon Chamber, a communal hut, and an Arena. The stronghold has been taken over by a group of Dunmer bandits, led by Llaren Terano.

The majority of characters are located in the Arena section. There are Dunmer watchers, as well as the Khajiit and Argonian prisoners located in the arena pit; some are in locked pens while some are in the midst of an arena fight when the Nerevarine arrives.
