Bravil Castle

Bravil is a squalid town located on the banks of the Niben Bay, south of the Imperial City. The Larsius River passes through and wraps around the town, as the Green Road curves around it.

Bravil is described as one of the poorest towns in Cyrodiil. Houses are built like shacks, being wooden and stacked upon each other. The Larsius River that runs through the town serves as Bravil's sewers. Because of its location on the bay's shore and the marshes and swamps that surround it, the climate is damp.

The settlement has likely been in existence since at least 1E 1152. It is known that Ayleids once lived in the region before the town was established. The Alessian Army attacked the Ayleids in the First Era, the army being led by the Empress Alessia's centurion Teo Bravillius Tasus. After discovering the Ayleid's ability to use Alteration type magic to defend themselves, Tasus managed to defeat them. Because of his success, the town owes its name to Tasus.

The Lucky Old Lady Statue

In the square east of Bravil's Great Chapel is a statue called The Lucky Old Lady. Standing in front of the statue and activating it will cast the spell Old Lady's Luck on you, which fortifies luck +10 points for 720 seconds. You can activate this statue as many times per day as you want.

  • The spell may be absorbed, replenishing your magicka rather than giving the blessing. If you want to receive the blessing, it is best to deactivate effects. On the other hand, it can be used to advantage by characters with the Atronach birthsign: absorbing the spell will restore your Magicka.
  • You can no longer receive the spell's blessing once you complete the Dark Brotherhood questline.
  • The book Daughter of the Niben provides some interesting background.

The Castle Gardens

The castle gardens are one of the few aesthetically pleasing locations in Bravil. While most of the town is run-down and ugly, the gardens are quite beautiful; as Dro'shanji will comment: Bravil is perhaps not so nice, but Bravil castle and Bravil castle gardens, they are jewels are they not?
