Mauloch's Mal (Arena)

Cradlecrush is a fort in western Eastmarch, north of Fort Amol. The stronghold can be accessed via the northern gate near the wayshrine. The arena is located in the southeastern corner of the stronghold. The clan's forge is located just west of the amphitheater. A copy of Boethiah and Her Avatars is sitting on a table at the forge. A creek runs north of the forge. The bridge that crosses this creek takes you to a stable with no livestock in it, which sits next to the stronghold's northern wall. You can climb up the watchtowers along the wall.

There's a heavy sack near the southern gate. It's beside some sacks and barrels in front of the first watchtower on your right as you enter through the southern gate. A chair, stool, barrel and fishing pole are set up by the river east of the southern gate.

After you complete the location's objective, the Stormfists are driven out and friendly giants move in.
