Alftand is a large Dwemer Ruin located in the mountains southwest of Winterhold. Scattered about the ruin is evidence of a rather ill-fated expedition led by Sulla Trebatius. Other members of the expedition included:

[edit] Places

Outside the ruins are the remains of two cabins, a small campsite and a staircase descending into the ruins proper.

[edit] Alftand Glacial Ruins

The Glacial Ruins are likely the first entrance found into the ruins of Alftand. There, the Dragonborn finds the remains of several members of a doomed expedition including one of the Khajiit brothers, J'zhar. The other Khajiit, J'darr attacks and must be killed in order to proceed.

[edit] Alftand Animonculory

The Animonculory reveals yet more corpses of the doomed expedition, including Endrast, Valie and Yag gra-Gortwog. There is also an alchemy lab and an anvil in this area.

[edit] Alftand Cathedral

The Cathedral is one of the final chambers before finding the lift to the outside world. From here, you can also enter Blackreach after using a dwarven mechanism to open the way.

This is where the Dragonborn encounters Sulla and Umana, still alive but at each other's throats.

[edit] Alftand Ruined Tower

This area is not actually connected to any of the other Alftand sub-locations.
