Without any mods, how is your stronghold determined?

I'm playing a Ranger/Cleric, and I'd like to know which stronghold I'm going to get.

I think it's which ever one you complete first if you're dual classed or multi-classed.

Your stronghold is determined by your class:
Fighters get the D'Arnise Keep.
Mages get the Planar Sphere
Bards get the Playhouse.
Clerics get the temple with which they're aligned.
Paladin gets the Order of the Radiant Heart (not the actual order, just a small room in it).
Thief gets the stronghold at the Shadow Thieve's Guildhall.
Druid gets the Druid Grove.
Ranger Gets the cabin in Umar Hills.

Did I leave anything out?

Ranger/Clerics get the Ranger stronghold. Always. They can not get the Cleric stronghold.

Sadly this is true.
For other combinations you get the first stronghold you decide to accept.
For a Fighter/Thief e.g. you could do the fighter-quest first but refuse the stronghold and later get the thief stronghold. If you choose to accept the first offer however you can't take the second (without mods that is)

2 questions:

1. how is the alingment worked out for clerics ?


2. what about if you have a stronghold, then lose it... could you then take on a 2nd ?
I.e multi-fighter/thief gets guild... fails to pay renal... loses guild.... goes to D'Arnise Keep and clears it... can they now get the keep ?

1. I don't know what you mean. Do you mean like, how does alignment affect which temple you work for? AFAIK, alignment doesn't affect it, instead, I think it's reputation.

2. No, you can't get more than 1 keep with out the mod that gives you multiple strongholds.

I'm not sure with normal or multi-classed clerics, but if you're playing a specialist (Priest of Talos/evil, Helm/neutral, Lathander/good) the stronghold quest differ in that you work for your particular temple obviously

If you have a mod installed that adds extra classes, say the Ashes of Embers Mod, could I still get any Cleric stronghold if I was playing as a Priest of Oron?
