The Skaal Village is a small Nordic settlement located in the icy tundra of northern Solstheim. It is one of the three settlements in Solstheim and it is a short distance north of Thirsk Mead Hall. In the center of the village, three Skaal can be seen "sustaining" a glowing column-like apparition. If interacted with, they will say that they need to concentrate. The village will be empty excluding the three Skaal around the column and the child Aeta until completion of "The Fate of the Skaal" quest.

Bugs[edit | edit source]
This section contains bugs related to Skaal Village (Dragonborn). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Fast traveling to this location can cause the Dragonborn to spawn high in the air, at which point they will then fall to the ground and usually die.
- Reload a previous save, fast travel out of Solstheim entirely, fast travel back into Solstheim, and then the Dragonborn can safely fast travel to the Skaal Village. This may need to be repeated each time this bug recurs.
- Alternatively, fast traveling to Thirsk Mead Hall and then walking the short distance to the Skaal Village can avoid this bug entirely.
