Bawnwatch Camp

Bawnwatch Camp is a nearly empty campsite southeast of Bravil (quest-related).

The Forlorn Watchman at the camp

Located on a small island in Niben Bay, nestled beneath the branches of a weeping willow, this small camp watches over the haunted Ayleid ruins of Bawn. The island connects with the mainland via a wooden bridge and contains a single tent with a bedroll, along with a cooking pot dangling over an unlit fireplace. The camp itself is deserted, but the small island is not; one or two angry mud crabs inhabit the island and will have to be disposed of before you can sleep. The island is devoid of any flora, with the exception of a Nirnroot behind the rocks to the east. An unlocked restoration chest can also be found in front of the two western rocks. The view is quite impressive on a clear day; you can see the city of Bravil in its entirety, along with the shore of the Nibenay Valley across the water. If you have the Shivering Isles expansion pack installed, the strange island with an equally strange door can be spotted in the middle of the bay.

While unremarkable on the surface, Bawnwatch Camp has another attraction, one infamous all over Bravil. According to locals, a ghost appears every evening and wanders the shore of Niben Bay. Local innkeeper Gilgondorin will fill you in on the details and mark the camp on your map saying: "I don't like talking about the dead like they're some kind of tourist attraction, but that spirit has been making his ghostly journey for years now. We've learned to just accept that he's there. Every night, sure as clockwork, he appears at Bawnwatch Camp at 8 on the shore of Niben Bay. He's never harmed anyone, but most people give him a wide berth." Indeed, at 8pm the Forlorn Watchman will appear right at the campsite, whispering "Please...", an obvious cry for help. Following him will lead you to great treasure during the related quest. Once the quest is completed, the ghost will no longer appear.
