Cheydinhal is a city in eastern Cyrodiil whose architecture and culture contains heavy Dunmer influence due to its close proximity to Morrowind's border. Located in the foothills between the Valus and Jerall Mountains, Cheydinhal sits on the northeastern edge of the Nibenay Basin, a river valley of tributaries to Lake Rumare and the Niben River.

Cheydinhal consists of three districts: Cheydinhal Castle, Market, and Chapel. The dominant feature of the city is a tributary of the Corbolo River, which bisects the city from north to south. The river is crossed by three bridges: a single bridge to the north connects the Market district to the Chapel district, while two smaller bridges to the south connect the southwest plaza and Chapel via a small island park.

For more information about Cheydinhal, see the lore article.

The Dark Brotherhood[edit]

The Dark Brotherhood has a sanctuary in this city at the Abandoned House (see map). Rumor has it that Count Andel Indarys knows, but threats and bribes from the Dark Brotherhood have managed to keep him quiet. See Joining the Dark Brotherhood for more information.
