Fort Greenwall

SR-mapicon-Fort.png This page lists all the military forts in Skyrim. Military camps are listed on a separate page.

The locations using the fort map marker can be roughly divided into three types. Forts affected by the Civil War appear in the first section. The occupants of these forts are initially bandits and mages. As the Skyrim Civil War progresses, either the Imperial Legion or Stormcloaks will take over and occupy the fort.

Forts can serve as settlements for factions: the Greybeards, the DawnguardDG, and the Volkihar Vampire ClanDG.

Other forts are set up as standard dungeons, with respawning enemies and a boss you must kill to clear the dungeon.
