Location[edit | edit source]
The Twilight Sepulcher is in Falkreath Hold, on its western border. It is quite lonely and mysterious as it is not near any other locations and is one of few Nordic ruins in that Hold.
History[edit | edit source]
The Sepulcher is home to the Ebonmere; Nocturnal's portal to the Evergloam and the resting place for the Skeleton Key. This is the entrance to Pilgrim's Path, a maze of enemies and barriers guarding the Sepulcher. It consists of two parts: Twilight Sepulcher and Twilight Sepulcher Inner Sanctum. The Sepulcher is locked until the quest "Darkness Returns" is started.
Quests[edit | edit source]
Notable items[edit | edit source]

- Lockpicking skill book - Proper Lock Design - On a table in a pit with water/shelves/decorations.
- Sneak skill book - Sacred Witness - In the same area as the lockpicking skill book.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- When Karliah is spoken to after the Skeleton Key is put back in the Ebonmere, she will have a large assortment of arrows in her inventory.
- Followers are not able to enter the Twilight Sepulcher, as it is exclusive to Nightingales. However, conjured beings can be summoned while in it.
- After completing "Darkness Returns", the Dragonborn can return to the Inner Sanctum to change their Nightingale powers.
- Even though it is marked as being a tomb, it is unlike most Nordic tombs, because it contains neither a word wall nor any draugr.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
This section contains bugs related to Twilight Sepulcher. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- After listening to Nocturnal, the Dragonborn will not be able to continue. Karliah will be busy, and the marker will remain on Nocturnal.
It is possible that when the portal to the Sepulcher is activated, the Dragonborn will become stuck under the stairs and unable to get out.
- Solution: Keep jumping to come out on the stairs and be able to leave.
