If you help Madanach & his followers escape in this is where they will end up. Afterwards, the Forsworn there will no longer be hostile to you, which can be quite useful if you're given any quests where you need to go there. For instance, I had to go there to retrieve Lisbet's Dibella statue, and they let me walk right in and take it as I please. :) — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 19:29 on 27 November 2011

Master Chest and Steel Ingots[edit]

I have added a part about another chest, which i found locked with "Master" however if someone could confirm both the location and the level of lock, as i don't think its a level lock, but just in case... Also when it says "3 Steel Ingots (2 sitting on the edge of the forge, and one on the ground nearby)" i found all 3 on the edge of the forge.... G-Rath 01:30, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Something's very wrong.[edit]

I just stumbled into this cave following a radiant quest. I had just started Foresworn Conspiracy and was supposed to go to the Temple of Talos but haven't yet. Anyways, Madanach and the Forsworn are there and are friendly. They are talking about Cidhna mine which I've never even heard of.

Now what the hey am I supposed to do?? Does this trash the Conspiracy plot? — Unsigned comment by Sniffles (talkcontribs) at 10:48 on 14 August 2012

Thats very interesting. They go here if they escape, so it seems that they may spawn here before being moved to the prison, possibly to ease any pressure on the system when you are being taken to prison between the quests. Unless of course it's bugged, someone should check this. The Silencer speaksTalk 12:12, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
EDIT: Just checked it out in game with a new character, and no Madanach. Looks like a bug, hopefully someone can check the scripts and find out for certain. The Silencer speaksTalk 16:01, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
Correction. I had gone to the temple of Talos but no further. The foresworn in this cave and the two outside allowed me to complete the radiant quest. All other foresworn remain hostile. I will check to see if there is odd progress with the associated quest today. Sniffles 21:31, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Expensive Trip[edit]

I'm friendly with the redoubt but it was Damn expensive when I returned on a radiant request as the sentries killed my mount!! — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 19:27 on 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Screen Goes Black / Bug[edit]

Playing on XBox360 and when I enter the cave, the screen goes black and I have to reset the console. I've tried a few different tricks that worked when similar issues occurred elsewhere (i.e. cleared the cache, left my follower outside). However, after a half-a-dozen different attempts, the screen still goes black. The relevant background and time-frame to Druadach Redoubt is I received the quest to bring Hjalti's Sword to the ghost of Old Hroldan, which is inside Druadach Redoubt. I did not complete the quest and it is still open. Next I received the quest to kill the leader of Druadach Redoubt. I did not complete the quest and it is still open. Last, I finished No One Escapes Cidhna Mine and Madanach, along with everyone else, appeared to survive. Suggestions? — Unsigned comment by ‎ (talk) at 20:23 on 20 November 2012

Basically, tinker with everything under your control, because you never know what causes something like this. But my best guess is it has to do with loading multiple quests. See if there's a way to quit one or both of the guests, preferably temporarily. If that doesn't make a difference, you should try to find the last save you have before opening up the second quest. And, if you really want to avoid that, I suggest changing up everything in your inventory. Remove everything but the bare essentials, then replace the bare essentials. Also, try dismissing the follower(s) entirely. Finally, I've seen situations where glitches occur while an objective in an unrelated quest remains unfulfilled. So complete virtually everything you already have on your plate and avoid new work. If that doesn't work, try finding contact information for Bethesda and send them a strongly worded protest against the injustice which has befallen you.

Problem is with all horses[edit]

I changed the note about Shadowmere to refer to any horse the player owns since I experienced that same issue with Frost. 22:58, 4 August 2013 (GMT)

had this issue with Dwarven Armored Mudcrab. adding him to DruadachRedoubtFaction, RefID E3609, seemed to fix it for me. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 07:09 on 8 July 2018 (UTC)


There is an apparently enchanted goat in the cave that will come running to you when you enter and will try to assist you in battle, though the amount of help a goat can give is strictly limited. On my last run through, however, it distracted one of the Forsworn who was trying to target me long enough for me to kill the Forsworn without taking damage myself. 20:42, 5 February 2014 (GMT)
