This article is about the region. For the Blackwood chapter, see Blackwood (chapter).

Straddling the great Niben River and extending east into the bogs of the Argonian homeland, Blackwood serves as the maritime gate to Cyrodiil—a valuable, if perilous, stretch of territory greatly prized by Khajiit, Argonians, and Imperials alike.

Southern Cyrodiil and Black Marsh

Blackwood is a swampy southern region located along the banks of the Lower Niben. It makes up the southernmost reaches of Cyrodiil and is ruled from the city of Leyawiin. The region also extends over the border into Black Marsh.

Blackwood is divided into three regions: the Niben Forest to the north, Gloomire to the south, and Blackwood Bog extending eastwards into Black Marsh.
