Largashbur, with the longhouse on the left

Largashbur is an accursed Orc stronghold in the Rift beset by giants. It is located west-southwest of Riften, against the mountains, east of the Dwemer ruin of Avanchnzel. It contains a makeshift altar to Malacath, adorned with Orcish Armor, Orcish Boots, an Orcish Helmet, an Orcish Shield, an Orcish Battleaxe, and seven bunches of lavender. Largashbur is the only one of the four Orc strongholds not to have a mine, and indeed has lent two of its working-age Orcs to Narzulbur, since Narzulbur has a mine but a shortage of workers.


  • Largashbur Longhouse - Primary dwelling for all residents.
  • Largashbur Cellar - Storage cellar and makeshift bar, with a few food barrels and sacks and a level-locked chest just outside the trapdoor entrance behind the longhouse.
  • Apothecary's Shack - Exterior building with an alchemy lab, and a few ingredients on a set of shelves and hanging from a pole.
  • Blacksmith's Shack - Exterior building with a forge, a workbench, and a grindstone, and a few pieces of Orcish equipment on a set of shelves, a table, and a barrel.
  • Tanner's Shed - Exterior building with a tanning rack, a food barrel, and a few pelts on a table.
