Lilmoth, known by some as the "Festering Jewel of Black Marsh", is a major city located on Oliis Bay.[1] It is the city farthest to the southeast in all of Tamriel.[2]

History

Prior to the Imperial colonization of the original Argonian city of Lilmoth, it was ruled by Argonian priest-king/queens. The earliest record of an Imperial sovereign in the city dating to 3E 109 when Magnus Septim wedded the Queen of Lilmoth, Hellena (with the preceding Argonian priest-king having been executed).[3] However, Lilmoth had previously been sympathetic to Cyrodilic interests even before its colonization during the Third Era, as far back as the Reman Empire and its war with Morrowind, with the Warlord of the city of the time, Ulaqth, leading troops into battle against the Duke of Mournhold.[4] The only other recorded Warlord of the city is a Warlady called Ioa.[5]

In the early years of the Fourth Era, Lilmoth fell victim to the floating city Umbriel. This event is known as 'The Slaughter at Lilmoth' and is one of the most gruesome massacres in Tamriellic history. This was also the place where both Annaïg Hoïnart and Mere-Glim, two friends who lived for a time on Umbriel, were born.[1]

Architecture

The architecture of Lilmoth mostly consists of old, moldy and rotting Imperial villas and manses in disrepair, ill-suited for the environment and climate of Black Marsh.[1][6] Over time, the city has sunk into the mud, and it is not uncommon to see only the tops of once-great structures. The center of town is known as Pusbottom and was the first area to be built, with the rest of the city growing around it. By the start of the Fourth Era, the area had become a sink district, home only to the poor and lawless. The waterfront and dock area contains most of the markets.[1]

Notes

  • Arena was originally conceived as a fighting game featuring a tournament that took the player to each of Tamriel's cities to challenge different gladiatorial teams. According to a file from that stage of development left behind in the final game, Lilmoth's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Dark Tide".[oog 1]
