Morthal is a city in the north of Skyrim, and the capital of Hjaalmarch. It is initially aligned with the Empire, but Jarl Idgrod Ravencrone seems uninterested in the conflict, claiming to sense bigger things afoot in the world. Her reclusive nature and mysticism has fed a general perception that she is an ineffective ruler. Many residents are concerned about the war, which brings unwelcome outsiders, and would prefer to continue to live in isolation. The city itself is a fairly small, humble settlement of little economic or strategic importance besides its small lumber mill. Only the mill, an apothecary, and an inn support its weak economy. Sitting on the southern edge of the Drajkmyr marsh, Morthal is often shrouded in a thick fog. The ominous twisted trees and torches glowing in the fog like wisps present a foreboding appearance to travelers. The swampy surrounding lands are rich in deathbells, swamp fungal pods, and giant lichen. Leveled creatures (trolls and rarely chaurus in open space) spawn in the area at night.
