Skaal Village is home to the Skaal, a nature-worshipping tribe of Nords. The village is located in the Felsaad Coast region of Solstheim, north of the Mead Hall of Thirsk, and is the northernmost settlement in Tamriel. It consists of small, sturdy wooden dwellings, arranged around a central Greathall which hosts feasts and other gatherings. Clad in traditional Nordic mail armor, Skaal Honor Guards protect the village from intruders, man and beast alike. At first, the villagers of Skaal are not very friendly to outsiders, but they are more welcoming once they accept you.
The Skaal have a rich and colorful culture with ritualistic hunts and bonds with nature; mythical beasts like the Spirit Bear and Karstaag are part of the lore here. Hunting is the main source of income for most, as the Horkers on the northern coast and nearby Lake Fjalding are a relative easy and lucrative prey. More adventurous Skaal hunters go after the elusive snow wolf or snow bear, whose pelts are valued highly among them.
Skaal Village is also home to the shaman of the tribe, who leads them in matters of ritual and spirituality.
