A Hunter is a randomly encountered Nord. They can be found in the wilderness of Solstheim, often on small groups of two or more. They typically wear pieces of Skaal armor, including a Skaal Coat, Skaal Boots, and a Skaal Hat.
In one particular encounter, a group of four will be preparing to hunt a Netch. One will approach you and say, "We have come south to test our might against a Netch, will you join us?" Inquiring what a netch is, they will explain: "The giant air-floater from the dark elf lands. Only the brave dare to hunt them, only the strong survive them. Come. Test yourself against the beast with us. We all will share in the glory of the hunt!"
Three options are presented next. Asking if they think they will win the fight, the hunter will respond, "A warrior expects nothing and therefore is ready for anything. If our aim and our hearts are true, the All-Maker will grant us strength. If not, today is as good a day to die as any other. Either way, they'll songs of our bravery around the campfires for many years." Agreeing to join the hunt, they will happily say, "Well met, friend. May we fight or die well." Wishing them good luck will result in the hunter stating, "Luck? Luck will play no part today. We will earn our victory or return to the All-Maker."
After this they will attack the netch. If they manage to kill the creature, they will repeat the lines: "It was a good hunt.", "Our victory will bring meat and bones to our people and glory to our families.", or "The beast was strong, but we were stronger.", and finally "They will sing stories of this day." If a hunter should die during the hunt, the surviving members will say, "The beast was not the only one to fall this day. May the All-Maker welcome our brethren with open arms.", or "We will honor and sing praises of the fallen."
You may encounter a hunter and his/her dog in the wilderness of Solstheim.
