The Witch Covens are a collection of factions that appear in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, scattered around the Iliac Bay. There are fourteen known Covens in High Rock and Hammerfell of varying sizes, with the most prominent group known as the the Glenmoril Witches.
While not a major faction in Daggerfall, the Covens have their own reputation system, and are capable of revealing Artifact of Power and summoning various Daedric Princes. All of the Coven members will offer the Agent quests, although there is no method enabling one to join a Coven.
The fourteen Covens featured in Daggerfall vary in size, ranging from a single Warlock or Witch, to a group of ten or more women surrounding the head Witch or "Beldam." Warlocks tend to be found on their own, while the head Witch of each group can be seen transforming from a young to an old woman and back again.
Furthermore, Covens can be found both within towns and in the wilds of the Iliac Bay, neither of which are displayed on the Agent's map until encountered. Once found, however, the Agent will see the Coven marked on their various maps, either in town or as a black dot on the region map, listed under the "Dungeons" tab. All Covens will be non-hostile the first time the Agent comes across them.
It is rumored that the Mages Guild also has respect for the various Covens, although a direct relationship between the two factions is unlikely.
There are ten potential, repeatable, quests available to complete for the Covens, four of which are locked behind the reputation system. There are no-Coven specific quests, although the Glenmoril Witches are involved in quests for other factions.
