TES: Arena (Part 4) - Fortress of Ice. We travel to the northern province of Skyrim to ask about the location of The Labyrinthian, and are directed to the Mages Guild in Winterhold. The mage there tells us about the Fortress of Ice and how there is an important stone tablet there that we need to fetch for him in order for him to tell us where The Labyrinthian is.
Before you leave Winterhold, be sure to buy some Potions of Resist Frost, as this dungeon is littered with Snow Wolves and a couple Ice Golems. I also recommend creating a Destroy Wall spell at the Mages Guild, one that only destroys a single wall will be cheap on mana cost, and you don't need one that goes three deep like Passwall yet. You'll also NEED a weapon that is Elven or a spell that deals fire damage, as there is a strong Ice Golem that stands between you and the tablet.
You can skip pretty much all of the first floor of the Fortress of Ice if you have a Passwall spell. The wall to the right a little ways down the initial corridor is only one wall thick, and the stairs down are just on the other side.
Be sure to take Resist Frost potions periodically, as there are a lot of Snow Wolves around almost every corner. The location of the tablet is far North, almost in the horizontal center of the floor. Once there, you'll have to answer a riddle to gain access (Air) and defeat an Iron Golem (who is immune to Frost damage and immune to any weapon below Elven material) to collect the stone tablet.
With the tablet in hand, we return to the Mages Guild in Winterhold and are given the location of The Labyrinthian.
