Lord Rugdumph's Estate (historically called Shurgak Clan Estate) is a settlement located in White Fall Valley, in the Valus Mountains of Cyrodiil. It is connected to Cheydinhal to the south via minor roads.
In the Second Era, Shurgak Clan Estate was a wealthy Orc stronghold, possessing both a traditional fortified encampment and a Breton-style manor house. During the Alliance War of 2E 582, the estate was initially within the territory controlled by the Ebonheart Pact, although the area changed hands many times over the course of the war. The estate was ruled by Warchief Azgarub, and was an entirely Orcish settlement. The Shurgak Clan was hostile to outsiders, and even servants would attack trespassers on sight. Azgarub was killed that year, and a raider named Krodak planned to loot the manor for treasure.
By 3E 433, the estate had been inherited by an Orc noble named Lord Rugdumph gro-Shurgak, from whom the estate got its current name. It consisted of a farm and servants quarters, as well as a manor house built in the Cheydinhal style, with influences from Dunmer architecture. That year, Rugdumph's daughter Lady Rogbut gra-Shurgak was kidnapped by ogres. She was rescued by the local Cheydinhal Fighters Guild branch.
