The Vaults of Gemin are a ruined structure located southwest of Stormhold in Black Marsh.

The vaults once belonged to the Conclave of Baal, an organization based out of Stormhold. They were used to store an ancient tablet which could be used to decipher the Elder Scrolls in order to divine the current location of Murkwood. However, the vaults sank into the ground when an associate of the organization cast a powerful spell with disastrous results. The crumbling ruins of the vault became partially flooded and infested with monsters.[1]

During the Imperial Simulacrum, the Eternal Champion was sent into the ruins by the Conclave to recover the ancient tablet.[2]


  • For game-specific information, see the Arena article.
  • In the game files of The Elder Scrolls Online, there is a concept map titled "Vaults of Gemin" with Daedric writing in the bottom right corner reading "JEREMY JAYMOND". (map) It seems that there were plans to include the location in the game, but was later cut during development.
  • The Conclave of Baal has not been mentioned since Arena, but the Daedra Molag Bal is based off a the real-world demon of the same name.
