The Forsworn are the most common type of hostile NPC encountered in The Reach. Encounters with them will not occur under normal conditions outside of The Reach. The Forsworn appear tribal in appearance and nature utilizing primitive gear and hedge-magic. They typically are found in makeshift fortresses built into caves and ruins termed redoubts. It is not possible to join the Forsworn, but you can side with them through a quest series and one area will become non-hostile.
