Fortress in Blackreach

Welcome! If your here, then you’re looking for some lore-friendly virtual real-estate in Skyrim. Luckily for you, an underground castle is available in Blackreach with all the essentials. Now your thinking, thats a dangerous place for a home. Don’t worry, plenty of defenses have been put in to keep the creatures of Blackreach out of your home. The castle has an interesting layout & is beautifully constructed. Everything is lore-friendly.


NPC Castle Staff

24 NPC’s with over 60 Unique AI Packages
14 Guards
5 Miners
2 Blacksmiths
3 Other


Main Throne Room
Huge Entrance with Many Booby-Traps
Balcony + Lookout

Boiler Room

There is no quest to get it; You need to find it and get in. You can gain access by either finding the entrance in Blackreach or use the service lift by fast travel. The fast travel is on the map already labeled ‘Lift to Zaborski’s House’ near Fort Dunstad Central North.

Main Hazardous Entrance
The entrance is located in Blackreach, by the Farm Overseer’s House.

Secret Safe Entrance
Once you are in, head right and navigate through the mines. Use the door that’s near all the silver ore. In this room there are 3 locked Dwarven doors. The right door has a lever that opens up a secret staircase. To unlock the right door, use the lever behind the middle door. The staircase will lead you to the boiler room. Navigate through the boiler room until your in the main entrance to the fortress.

(here come the next)
the last point is the secret passage in the's fucking amazing!
....but, and i'm not sure it's possible but, could the secret passage could be locked? because I see wich secret passage annimation you used and yes i don't think it reverse, but I was hoping you could find it and just add an other level to the down level and then, this damn secret passage will, and will be forever so good :D
I wanted a house in Black reach and this one is a good one :D

well then :D which date for the last comment? 2015...mmm well i don't care ^^
So yeah i love this mod so much and pretty good job man this is so cool :D !
Just some details hit me when i discover your fortress.
The bedroom was pretty empty of object or decoration i was so sad :( ( but love this ysgrammor statue XD )
next to the bedroom i think it's the balcony and the lookout, and i think balcony could maybe have more stuff too, because this one is not complete for me, maybe add some stone chair, stone table or a throne like the one in the reflexion room of Black Reach :)
(didn't finish yet my comment)
