Riften is a city located on the shores of Lake Honrich in south-eastern Skyrim. When you first arrive, the guards will tell you that you need to pay a visitors' tax, but this is just a scam. Temple of Mara is located in this city. The corrupt Black-Briar family also resides in Riften and are one of the city's main story-based features. The Ratway is also a major defining feature of the city. It is regarded as a complex under the main walkways, home to thieves, lowlives, and the Thieves' Guild, and has a reputation for being deadly to the unprepared citizen.
