"This island looked so peaceful, so remote. Seemed like a good place for an outpost. Bjord and I stayed behind while the others scouted about. It wasn't long before we heard the screams. We peered over the rocks and I can't even describe what we saw, although I'll never forget it. The blood. Gods, the blood..."

Horker Island is a small island just off the east coast of Solstheim.

On the southern coast of the island is an overturned longboat where Saden's Journal can be found. The journal explains a little about how the Horksbane's previous owner died.

Head north along the coast to find several dead Reavers, evidently slain by the horkers lumbering around. Saden's corpse can be found on a hill. Follow the blood trail up the hill to find a large unique horker named Lord Tusk.

Also on the island is Gyldenhul Barrow, the resting place of the legendary pirate, Haknir Death-Brand.
