Bruma is a city in the Jerall Mountains region in northern Cyrodiil, north of the Imperial City along the Silver Road. The Orange Road connects the city to Chorrol to the southwest, while Cloud Ruler Temple is nearby to the northwest. The region is cold and snow-covered, with the city featuring architecture influenced by nearby Skyrim and a significant Nord population, some of whom follow the traditional Nordic pantheon.

The city is dominated by the Great Chapel of Talos, the youngest of the Nine Divines. The Countess of Bruma is Narina Carvain, a Nibenean Heartlander of noble descent. Representatives of the Thieves Guild and the Dark Brotherhood may be found in the city, as described below.

For more information about Bruma, see the lore article.
