Bearclaw Mine

Follower of Vaermina

Bearclaw Mine is located in the far east of Stormhaven. Followers of Vaermina, a Daedric Prince, and bandits have taken an interest in this mine.

Ha! This bandit is not a match for my two-handed axe! Up in the air he goes and dies quickly after landing.

As I journeyed into the mine, I came across the body of man. He was clutching a journal with a piece of paper hanging out. He had a hastily, scribbled letter addressed to Mashana.

Loose letter from Hubert

As I was placing the journal and letter in my pack, a ghost appeared. It was Hubert, the dead miner.



I knew I would need to get this journal to Mashana. As I was headed out, I noticed the leader of the bandit gang standing in the distance. I knew what I must do…….

Octavia, Leader of the bandit gang

Once Octavia was dealt with, I left Bearclaw Mine and proceeded to the town of Wind Keep. I located Mashana and gave her the journal and letter. Hubert was her cousin and she had been worried since she did not hear back from him. I told her I was sorry for her loss and continued on my journey in Tamriel.

Coldrock Diggings

I decided to go to Alik’r Desert and explore some dungeons I had read about. I hooked up with my friend, Morvinia, and started our journey.

We came upon Coldrock Diggings, which we read was inhabited by Bloodfiends. Coldrock Diggings use to be a mine which was used to mine grit-rock which was used in sanding wood planks and holystone. Light pumice was used for cleaning the decks on ships. The mine had been abandoned for some time since the bloodfiends took over.

And the battles begin

We finally met up with the boss, Feremuzh of this group and decided to end her time in this mine!

Once we had the mine cleared out, we left to head to our next adventure

Del’s Claim

While I was passing through Auridon I heard gossip that some cult had taken over a mine and killed the miners inside. I decided to investigate this for myself.

There indeed was an invasion, dead miners everywhere! These individuals who took over the mine were from The Veiled Inheritance. Well I decided I would not leave until their leader, Polinus, was dead!

Of course I met trouble along my journey in the mine.

Finally I found Polinus and things did not end up well for him!

Once I was done with him, I ventured into different tunnels and found an area where there were many dead miners. Near a young man named Vareldur was a bloody journal. He had written to his mother during his last moments. I knew I had to get this journal to her.

Of course I did not get out of the mine without a fight!

As I left the mine, I traveled to the town of Mathiisen to contact Vareldur’s mother.

It’s never easy to be the bearer of bad news. I gave her the journal and my condolences.
