|Redolent Loam, Deshaan|
|West of Mournhold|
The Obsidian Gorge is a pass in northern Deshaan, east of Narsis and west of Mournhold, filled with old Daedric ruins. According to Captain Diiril, it is the primary trading route between Mournhold and the west. It is also home to a trader's camp. Every caravan that comes through the area depends on that camp. Two notes, House Hlaalu Merchant Camp, and Valyia's Cargo Manifest, can be found here. After "Nothing Left to Waste" is completed, Kotholl's Contract can also be found here.
- Obsidian Gorge Objective: Find out why the Maulborn are occupying the pass.
- Nothing Left to Waste: Help recover some items from a ruined camp.
Obsidian Gorge Wayshrine is located on the road southwest of the Gorge.
- Merchant Protectors will appear here after the objective has been completed.
