Valenvaryon is a Dunmer stronghold at the north edge of the Ashlands that is home to a colony of Orcs.

The shrine to Malacath

It is one of the ancient strongholds of a brighter time for the Dunmer. Valenvaryon is in the far northern Ashlands, east of the Urshilaku Camp and north of Falasmaryon. There has been no internal access to Valenvaryon for many years, and the original stones used to form the entrance have been broken down and used as huts. The ancient Propylon Chamber, being a magical artifact, appears to have escaped this fate.

The strongholds seem interesting to the traveler, but should be approached very carefully. They have largely been abandoned, but have since generally proved attractive to whatever group feels strong enough to hold them. At last report, Valenvaryon has been taken over by a group of Malacath-worshipping Orcs, most of whom are hostile to all outsiders. In spite of this, there is an excellent alchemist residing at the stronghold, with a complete set of grandmaster Alchemy apparatus.

There are three trainers located in Valenvaryon, including the Master Trainer in Alchemy. The master trainer, Abelle Chriditte, also provides major training in Conjuration and Mysticism. The other two trainers are Lambug gra-Lurn and Snaglak gro-Yak. While both are hostile, if they are successfully calmed or snuck up on, they will happily provide service. They both offer minor training in Acrobatics, Light Armor, and Sneak.

Valenvaryon has a Propylon Chamber linking to Rotheran and Falasmaryon.
