- This place's forbidding black towers are visible for leagues, even through Rivenspire's drifting mists. Yet the local inhabitants never mention it, behaving as if it doesn't even exist. But the Crypt of Hearts is no illusion or mirage—it is solid and all too real.

The Crypt of Hearts I is a group dungeon found in Rivenspire. Formerly a school teaching Destruction magic, sword fighting, alchemy, and possibly even Daedric summoning, the crypt is now home to some of the tortured souls of its teachers and of its students. In this version, Alanwe needs you to piece together her soul, which is currently contained in three phylacteries scattered throughout the Crypt.
