Fort Amol (or simply called Amol)[1] is a fortified settlement found in the region of Eastmarch, within the province of Skyrim. Fort Amol was a noteworthy settlement that was occupied by a Jarl, but it would soon fall into disrepair, and become the regional stronghold for Eastmarch.

History[edit]

During the Interregnum around 2E 582, Fort Amol was a castle-town that was occupied by Jarl Ivannar.[2] It consisted of the Jarl's Manor, an Inn, and a couple of homes. The rest was encampments that were utilized by the Ebonheart Pact.

Jorunn the Skald-King would utilize Fort Amol as a meeting ground for the Ebonheart Pact. On one occasion, Jorunn had gathered the militaristic leaders of the Pact, Keshu the Black Fin, Kora Greatstorm, and Yeveth Noramil, and had proclaimed war for Cyrodiil, with each leader now focusing on the war effort. This conflict would become known as the Alliance War, against the developing Daggerfall Covenant, the remaining Imperial Legion, and eventually, the Aldmeri Dominion.[3]

Following his Konunleikar, Jorunn the Skald-King would gather the Ebonheart Pact again at Fort Amol, to discuss the future of the alliance, as well as, solidify their bond. But at this time, Fildgor, Jorunn's exiled brother had returned to Eastern Skyrim, to usurp his brother's throne. In doing so, he employed the Stormfist Clan, sabotaged the Konunleikar in Windhelm, and attempted to foil the meeting in Fort Amol. An Agent of the Pact would investigate the Stormfist Clan in Fort Amol, as well as, attend to the Pact delegates.[4][5] With the help of their friend, Naryu Virian, they are able to uncover the Stormfist's plot to assassinate the King with Daedric poisoning. Once the Stormfist agents were dealt with, the Pact made it a priority to cure Jorunn of his severe poisoning. The meeting in Fort Amol was interrupted, and High King Jorunn would be taken to the Ternion Monks of Mistwatch.[6]

During the Imperial Simulacrum in the late Third Era, the town of Amol was an active settlement, being ruled by Baroness Helle. It had a rivalry with Vernim Wood.[1] It was neighbored by several settlements, including Laintar Dale in the southwest, Windhelm in the east, and Winterhold in the north.[7]

During the Skyrim Civil War in 4E 201, the ruins of Fort Amol were occupied by a local wizard's coven. But regardless, Fort Amol would play a pivotal in the Skyrim Civil War, serving as Eastmarch's regional bulwark. It was used by the Stormcloaks as their defense in the greater Eastmarch wilderness, against the Imperial Legion, should they invade the area. Should the Legion gain control over Fort Amol, it would have left Windhelm in a rather compromised position.[8]
