  • I've been reading some articles about that and the book in Skyrim.

    In one of the articles, it was mentioned that the Sea-Ghosts were glowing spirits, and the spirits in Yngol Barrow glew like stars.

    Also, the book mentioned the said spirits guiding people to their deaths in the Sea of Ghosts, and the spirits in Yngol Barrow guided you to Yngol's Spirit, in which they guided you to your death, which would be a failed attempt. (If you survived Yngol, obviously.)

    Plus, the Yngol Barrow is next to the Sea of Ghosts, so its possible that the Sea-Ghosts migrated there?

    Not to mention that the Sea-Ghosts guided Yngol to his death, and Yngol's remains reside inside Yngol Barrow.

    Is that just coincidence or the Sea-Ghosts really have some connection with the Yngol Barrow spirits?

    • They could be.

    • I thought the sea ghosts were like normal ghosts.

    • I think I read a book that says they are bright and lure sailors to their death. The glowing orb spirits are bright.

    • According to lore, Ysgramor hunted down the Sea-Ghosts. I'm not sure if he committed genocide on them as well, or that he just hunted down those responsible for his son's death.

      In any case, it would be amusing, in a sense, that the spirits of the spirits were trapped in Yngol's Barrow with the person they killed. It would be rather 'mean' of them to haunt the man they killed for so very long even in his burial chamber.


      What I am most curious about, is if the Sea of Ghosts is named after the Sea-Ghosts or if the Sea-Ghosts are named after the Sea of Ghosts.

    • I thought it self-evident that those were the Sea-Ghosts, especially as they can distract you as you wander in to traps. They're not specifically labelled as such in the game, although perhaps somebody could have a look and see if the object names give any clues?

      I might check once Skyrim decides to stop crashing when I get to Windhelm.

      I think he attempted to commit genocide, but few survived. Just like the Snow Elves. But you're probably right about Ysgramor hunting them down.

      And that last line... yeah, that's a question nobody bothered to answer, but I think that the Sea of Ghosts is named after the Sea-Ghosts. It's kind of a Bermuda Triangle deal.

    • I do think that they are the Sea-Ghosts, but at the risk of sounding like a total girl they are rather cute. Or is that jst me...

    • Nope, I totally agree with you.

    • There are a ton of such questions out there. This is one if my favorites. Who doesn't like a good ghost story?

      They're ghosts. How can you genocide something that's not alive?

    • The same way you kill a vampire, or a wisp.
