South Guard Ruins

South Guard Ruins is a ruined town southeast of Senchal. Following the Knahaten Flu, a Khajiit named Turo took advantage of the chaos to occupy the town with his Black Gulls; a band of slavers and cutthroats. Barring hardy survivors and those enslaved by the gang, few people now live there.

A copy of The Burning of Senchal can be found among the wreckage of Turo's caravan along the road outside the settlement. There is a Thieves Trove near a cart in the caravan wreck.

There's a stone pier extending from the beach on the northeast side of the ruins. At the end of the walkway, you'll find two urns, a Saltwater Fishing Hole, a thieves trove and a copy of The Worldly Spirits. Salamanders roam the beach here. Trained Skeevers can be found at the dock on the east side of the ruins. Admiral Irathi can be found on the dock, near an anchored ship. The entrance to Turo's Fortress lies beyond a wrought iron gate just west of the docks.

If you head south from these docks, you'll find the southern beach where Turo's slaving vessel, The Dream-Drowner, is docked. There's a cave north of the pier the Dream-Drowner is anchored beside that contains cages to hold slaves. The beach and dock are filled with pirates who are overseeing slave labor. There's a functional cooking fire on the beach. You'll find a slave being harassed by mudcrabs on the beach west of the slave cages and boat.

A pair of skeletons that look like they're relaxing on the beach is located north of Lorgren Vergilus, who is fishing along the coast west of South Guard.
