Castle Ebonheart is the seat of Imperial authority on Vvardenfell. From this city, the Duke of Ebonheart, Vedam Dren, and his Grand Council determine law and policy for the Vvardenfell administrative district. The Imperial Chapels serve the Duke, his retainers and the castle’s garrisons, and are also an administrative center for Imperial Cult presence on Vvardenfell. A unit of the Imperial Guard protects the Duke, and the Hawkmoth Legion is also garrisoned within the walls of the castle.
The name of the settlement was taken from Old Ebonheart. It was built sometime after Vvardenfell was opened for settlement in 3E 414 to act as the new Imperial capital of the island. Much of the business in Vvardenfell which concerns either the Empire or House Hlaalu is conducted in Ebonheart, as the Hlaalu Grandmaster is the Duke himself.
Because the East Empire Company is chartered directly by the Emperor, its offices, warehouses and docks are adjacent to the castle, and its security is assured by the Imperial garrisons. The provinces of Skyrim and Black Marsh maintain diplomatic missions in Ebonheart, the latter mainly in concern for its citizens, due to the fact that the Morrowind province is exempt from the abolition of slavery.
Nice night to visit Hla Oad for a quest.
I remember playing this game the first time through, and seeing this chick in Suran. It was the first time I saw glass armor. So, of course, I got my archery skills up, sat on a roof and shot her ass until she died. I dropped all my inventory, and turned myself in after. Right after that I grabbed my shit, and had kick ass green armor! I seriously spent a good week (real time) trying to get her armor.
