Rosethorn Hall is a house for sale in the northern part of Skingrad. It is the biggest and most expensive house (available for purchase) in Cyrodiil.

Rosethorn Hall is at first occupied by Vandorallen Trebatius, but he is "evicted" when the house is purchased from Shum gro-Yarug for 25,000 gold. A total of fifteen upgrades can be purchased from Gunder for varying prices. A housekeeper is available for hire upon purchase of the servants quarters upgrade. The upper wall hangings upgrade can be stolen from a table in the Surilie Brothers' house.

The building is divided into three cells: Rosethorn Hall, Rosethorn Hall Top Floor, and Rosethorn Hall Basement.

Bugs[edit]

  • Entering Rosethorn Hall via the upstairs balcony door counts as trespassing. However, since the door is hard to see from the street below, there is little chance of a bounty. You are still able to enter the house properly via the ground floor entrance.
  • If you sit on the stool in the basement (the one below the Garlic Clusters), you will be unable to get up again and will have to fast travel to any location in order to move on. The cause of the problem is that when you try stand up using the activate key, you inevitably activate the overhanging Garlic Clusters instead, preventing the standing action from being triggered.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by the Unofficial Oblivion Patch.
    • Pc22.png You can fix this by using the console from third person view: select the stool and type activate.
    • Pc22.png Alternatively, this can be fixed by using the console to disable the garlic cluster: select the cluster and type disable.
