Dawnstar

Dawnstar is a city on the northern coast of Skyrim, and the capital of the Pale.

It is a fishing and mining settlement which is initially controlled by the Stormcloaks.

The residents will report having horrible nightmares, which some initially blame on a witch's curse. It is frequently attacked by dragons.

For historical information about Dawnstar, see the lore article.
