Lazare Milvan[edit]

If you talk to Lazare Milvan (in his home), he says you've made a mistake; you're obviously of low birth. You're allowed to excuse yourself or to dispute him: "I am not of low birth." Either way, his next and only conversational gambit is to point out disdainfully that you're still talking--but if you dispute him, he tells you to leave or draw your sword. He's not so hard to kill, but it counts as murder (unknown forces witness it, etc.). Aside from probably qualifying for the Dark Brotherhood, is this scene part of a quest? --Thistle 01:31, 8 April 2006 (EDT)

Nerastarel's House[edit]

Across from House For Sale/My Skingrad House is a house labeled "Nerastarel's House". If you break-in to this house, you will quickly learn that it is haunted. Has anyone discovered whether or not this is a random haunted house or a quest related area of some sort? --stotch 04:35, 30 May 2006 (EDT)

Just been looking at this in the CS now, doesn't seem to be anything related to the location apart from one of the TG quests references it briefly as a landmark. Jadrax 17:48, 12 March 2007 (EDT)

Skingrad Guards[edit]

Does anyone know why Skingrad guards wear heavy armor?? Normal guards wear chainmail armor, but fore some reason Skingras guards wear steel armor. (exept for the cuirass and shield, of course)LordDagon 08:42, 1 December 2007 (EST)--lordDagon

The helmet ("Guard Helmet") is light armor too. There doesn't seem to be any particular reason why they have steel armor though - it's just that way in the construction set. --RpehTCE 08:47, 1 December 2007 (EST)

Pale Lady[edit]

I notice that under people the Pale Lady is listed under other, shouldn't she be under Skingrad castle since that is the only place she is found? --Volanaro 04:30, 13 April 2008 (EDT)

Good point, but I think she is in "Other" because she is found in a dungeon, and she is also a vampire, her existence unknown to the majority of other NPCs. --HMSVictory 04:32, 13 April 2008 (EDT)

A Perfect Circle[edit]

Someone mentioned this already, but the Skingrad symbol does resemble the album art of A Pefect Circle

      That's probably why its my favorite city. Deus1Ex3Machina 18:36, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Skingrad Prison[edit]

If I got sent to prison here, is there a chance I might get sent to the Pale Lady? This, of course, would have to be before she is dead... — Unsigned comment by (talk) on 12 December 2008

No. It's a nice idea but you can only encounter her during the relevant quest. –RpehTCE 03:09, 13 December 2008 (EST)

Stone well [Moved][edit]

There is a stone well outside skingrad that opens and can be used for storage, I was curious about any information you've got on the subject as to whether it is safe for storage or do your items get lost etc etc.. ? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 22:54 on 23 July 2009 (UTC)

The well in the Castle courtyard is a Dead Drop location for the Dakr Brotherhood quests, logic implies that it wouldn't respawn otherwise you could claim to reward for the previous quest multiple times. It'd be best to test it first with something cheap --Nacht 17:11, 27 December 2009 (UTC)


at the front of skingred there are the sighns that say the people that make the wine but when you look t it it says activate wis that a quest?— Unsigned comment by Allgreto (talkcontribs) at 20:25 on 24 August 2009

It's not a quest. It's nothing actually. You can't activate it, even though it says so. It just shows up so you can read it better. Compare it to the roadsigns. Wolok gro-Barok->T->C->E 21:35, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Reinforced doors[edit]

Is there any particular reason why all the doors in Skingrad are labelled as 'reinforced door'? Is this tied in with the guards wearing heavy armor? 14:15, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

No, I don't think there is a particular connection. It's just the design style of the city. --Timenn-<talk> 11:25, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I think there's a connection. Not explicitly so, but everything that the player learns of Skingrad in conversations about it suggest it to be a secure and well-maintained city. The reinforced doors reflect this, and it's possible the guards wearing steel armor was a deliberate choice to reflect this as well. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 15:19 on 26 May 2010

Buying house[edit]

I've killed that orc who's selling house in skingrad, so can i get that house anyway?


No, there is no other way. --Timenn-<talk> 11:09, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Ulterior Motives[edit]

I moved that quest from Mage's guild category to Related quests, cause it doesn't start in Skingrad. 18:09, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
