The Hill of Suicides is a hill that rises out of the swamp waters of northern Dementia, in the center of the Shivering Isles. It is located north of the Low Road, to the west of New Sheoth. A small graveyard is located nearby.[1][2]

The Hill is infamous among the mortal inhabitants of the Isles, as any citizen who choses to end their own life is doomed to spend eternity on the Hill by Sheogorath's decree.[3] The souls of these suicides can be seen mournfully gazing out adopt the Hill, but cannot be spoken to.[1] It is believed to be a miserable existence, intended to discourage depressed mortals from killing themselves.[4] Visitors to New Sheoth sometimes take day trips to the Hill to take in the sight.[2]

The only way to free a soul from the Hill of Suicides is to bring their mortal remains to them. However, these skeletal remains may allegedly be scattered across the Isles by forces unknown. Those that free trapped souls are said to become blessed.[3]

Circa 3E 433, the Hero of Kvatch freed all the souls from the Hill of Suicides by recovering their skulls. In return, the souls provided blessings and the power of reanimation.[5] Around this time, the Heretics proclaimed that they would dethrone "Sheogorath the False" and lay his head upon the Hill of Suicides.[6]
