Summerset Isle

Skywatch is one of the main cities on Auridon, the second largest island of the Summerset Isles.[1] The city is built around an ancient ruin.

For millennia the Sload, notorious for their necromantic mastery, terrorized the Altmer, conjuring sea monsters along the coasts and laying siege to Skywatch.[2] The Sack of Skywatch in 1E 1301 is among one of the most terrible events in Tamriel's history.[3] Internal conflicts between Skywatch and Firsthold during the First and Second Eras often sparked into full war.[3]

Notes[edit]

  • Arena was originally conceived as a fighting game featuring a tournament that took the player to each of Tamriel's cities to challenge different gladiatorial teams. According to a file from that stage of development left behind in the final game, Skywatch's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Assassins".[oog 1]
