Zergonipal circa 3E 427

Zergonipal is a Daedric ruin located along the northern coast of Vvardenfell, deep in the Ashlands and just east of Bthuand.[1][2] The ruin's interior contains a shrine dedicated to Malacath, Daedric Prince of Outcasts.[1]

Circa 2E 582, Zergonipal was located next to an active lava flow. The area was plagued by hostile flame atronachs, as well as less dangerous vermin such as fiendroths, fetcherflies, and skavengers.[2] A crafting site located at Zergonipal was believed to imbue items crafted here with a certain artfulness, perhaps the result of local reality being transformed by the divine spark of creativity exercised by the master craftworkers who had come before.[3][4]

As the threat from Dagoth Ur began to grow in the late Third Era, the Ordinators were no longer able to guard isolated Daedric ruins like Zergonipal.[5] By 3E 427, the ruins had become occupied by a hostile group of Orcish worshippers and their Daedric minions.[1]
