Overview of the statue and camp

The Sacellum of Boethiah is the shrine for the Daedric Prince Boethiah located in the mountains directly east of Windhelm on the map.

It is composed of three levels, and all of them seem to be abandoned and burned. There are blood stains on the ground and burned corpses around the shrine. All of it looks like a dragon raided the place not too long ago.

On the lowest level, there is a tent and some bedrolls, as well as some kind of small arena. There are also packs near the tent, with three bottles of skooma found in one of them. On the mid level, there is a tent surrounded by cages. Inside the tent, there is an Alchemy Lab and an Arcane Enchanter. On the highest level is the actual shrine, which has a mysterious pillar in front of it. If you have a follower with you inside the circle, you can activate the pillar. Tell your follower to use the pillar and they will be drawn towards it. This allows you to kill your follower and loot their corpse without consequence. There's also a tanning rack nearby.

If you are level 30 or higher, then there are a number of Boethiah Cultists, and a Priestess of Boethiah present at the shrine. Speaking to the Priestess will start Boethiah's Calling if it has not already begun.

Daedric carvings

The Daedric carvings

The magic pillar is surrounded with spiral Daedric carvings on the ground and some kind of magical channel that lights up when you enter its zone.

The Daedric carvings are mirrored and have to read from the outside to the center. Translated into the Latin alphabet, it reads as follows:

I am alive because that one is dead
I e[x]ist because I have the will to do so

It's a direct quote from the book Boethiah's Proving.
