Kurz gro-Baroth in the Chorrol Fighters Guild

Kurz gro-Baroth is an Orc warrior living in the Chorrol Fighters Guild. He is a member of the Fighters Guild, and like his brother Lum, he spends most of his time practicing, either with an axe in the Guild basement, or with a bow in the back yard.

Kurz lives the life of a dutiful Fighters Guild member, spending much of his time training while awaiting a new contract. He starts his day by heading to the Chorrol Fighters Guild at 6am and spend the next two hours wandering around the guildhall. At 8am he takes a seat at the table on the first floor and eats his breakfast for two hours. Once he's finished, he will begin his strict training regime: four hours practice with his war axe in the basement until 2pm, followed by two hours of archery practice on the targets behind the guildhall.

At 4pm he returns inside and paces around until his dinner time at 6pm, which he takes for two hours at the table on the first floor. At 8pm he heads out to the Great Oak and spends the next four hours exchanging gossip with his fellow Chorrol citizens. At midnight, he will begin to seek out a bed (see Notes). If successful he will sleep for 6 hours, if not he will continue to wander around the Great Oak until 6am.

He wears an iron cuirass, leather bracers, laced leather pants and a pair of stitched leather shoes. He is armed with an iron war axe and an iron bow with iron arrows. He carries the key to the Fighters Guild and a small amount of gold.


He will introduce himself with:

"Things could always be worse. And probably will be. I'm Kurz gro-Baroth. What can I do for you?"

If you have not joined the Fighters Guild he will also say:

"You look tough. Want to join the Fighters Guild?"


His brother Lum will mention Kurz's negative outlook on life, saying:

"I'm Lum gro-Baroth. The cheerful one. My brother, Kurz? He's not so cheerful."


  • When he's practicing archery, Kurz gro-Baroth is a good never-ending source of free arrows, as he never runs out, but keeps shooting at the target. Just collect them from the target before he does, and back off to let him keep firing.
  • Although he will never fire arrows at you while he's practicing archery (even if you're invisible or at 100% chameleon), he will disregard any conjured creatures blocking the target and keep firing away. Due to the unique properties of his arrows, they will do no damage upon impact with a live target, but it can on occasion provoke the stricken creature to attack him.
  • There are three other NPCs by the name of "Kurz gro-Baroth" that can be found inside of the game's files. They are testing characters for Orcs, Nords, and Redguards, respectively. The Orc is almost a duplicate besides a different face and schedule. The other two have the name in common, but share very little else.


  • Kurz doesn't seek a specific bed when he wants to sleep. Instead he tries to find any bed he can sleep in which isn't owned by someone else, potentially even on the bedrolls of the beggars outside.
