Neugrad Watch was a small settlement in southwestern Skyrim, contemporary with the Imperial Simulacrum. During the Simulacrum, Neugrad Watch was ruled by Lord Fenrens and had a rivalry with North Keep. It was neighbored by several settlements, including Falcrenth in the southwest, and Oakwood in the northeast. By 4E 201, the settlement had been abandoned and all that remained were the ruins of Fort Neugrad, occupied by a small number of guards.
Because of avalanches in the Pale Pass and the destruction of Helgen by Alduin, a group of bandits successfully overran the fort in 4E 201. The old library was looted by Brandish, a member of the bandits, in search of magical items. The bandits had intended to clear out before the Jarl of Falkreath could react, but the Imperial Legion retook the fort for use as a strongpoint during the Stormcloak Rebellion. However, morale was low and reinforcements were unable to make it through the closed Pale Pass. The fort served as a point of contention between the Legion and the Stormcloaks, with the Stormcloaks vying for control of the fort in order to conquer Falkreath Hold.
