Is this a spoiler? Granted both of these situations happen early in Oblivion, but it doesn't seem to fit in a general Tamriel page about Kvatch. - Jketola 14:33, 10 May 2006 (EDT)

I'm inclined to agree... the idea of the Tamriel pages is to be more descriptive, not historical (except of course pre-TES games historical). I'll edit it. -- EndarethTalk 19:44, 10 May 2006 (EDT)
I got my first thief character to gather too many levels in Skingrad without really gaining any combat skills. Then the countryside appeared really dangerous, as I rode towards Kvatch, it was constant flight from trolls, bandits etc. I couldn't wait to reach the safe haven of the city walls. I galloped through the camp without paying attention and suspecting these people may be bandits, so I hurried ahead. "It's getting dark, okay. Storm begins, well, happens. Rather dark and dry here, probably high mountains flora." And then I take the last turn, stop and mutter "Quatsch". That was one of two moments when the game really made something I didn't even remotely expect. (The other was when Ocato didn't betray and accepted Martin as emperor :) - That gate there came as a shock, and the only in the whole game, really. --Vook 17:15, 10 May 2006 (EDT)

kvatch prison[edit]

So what would happen if you got arrested in kvatch? (Timedragon1 15:48, 21 May 2011 (UTC))

I believe you go to the imperal city but i may be wrong Wolfy 15:48, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
actully,I tested it and they just attack you. (Timedragon1 16:31, 21 May 2011 (UTC))
None of the guards in Kvatch are actually guards by class, so they cannot arrest you. Also, if you get a real guard to Kvatch, you will be taken to Anvil, the nearest jail. --DKong27 Talk Cont 16:32, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Antus Pinder[edit]

I believe part of this article is speculation. The section is: Sources show it was a major settlement when sacked by the Camoran Usurper in the 3E 249. During this assault, Antus Pinder led the defense of the city, and despite being defeated gravely, was given a statue in Kvatch to remember his courage and spirit..

  • Camoran's part seems to be based on the book Lore:The Refugees: "I think the people of Kvatch would disagree with that assessment," said Hzim, coldly.
  • For Antus Pinder, we have a very vague Oblivion loading screen: "Antus Pinder led a hopeless defense against a superior force. Despite a grave defeat, his statue stands in Kvatch to honor his courage and spirit."

Nowhere can I find the connection between the sack of Kvatch and Antus Pinder. While it may have happened, it's not explicit anywhere. The only mention I can find is an imperial library page with no source: http://www.imperial-library.info/content/city-kvatch. I think unless there is a connection, it should be reworded.

That loading screen appears to be the only reliable source on Pinder. In which case, yes, that section is loaded with speculation stated as fact. Minor EditsThreatsEvidence 18:56, 2 May 2013 (GMT)
