The village is located in the [[Bloodmoon:Felsaad Coast|Felsaad Coast]] region of [[Bloodmoon:Places|Solstheim]], north of the Mead Hall of [[{{NAMESPACE}}:Thirsk|Thirsk]], and is marked on the [[Bloodmoon:Bloodmoon|Bloodmoon]] paper map.

Clad in traditional [[Bloodmoon:Nordic Mail|Nordic Mail]] armor, Skaal Honor Guards protect the village from intruders, man and beast alike. At first, the villagers of Skaal are not very friendly to outsiders, but they are more welcoming once they accept you.
The Skaal have a strict code of honor,; punishment is often swift and severe. In these hostile surroundings, being able to trust each other is vital for the very survival of the members of the tribe. Still, there are temptations...
The Skaal have a rich and colorful culture with ritualistic hunts and bonds with nature which you may explore during [[Bloodmoon:The Skaal Test of Loyalty|The Skaal Test of Loyalty]]. Mythical beasts like the Spirit Bear and [[Bloodmoon:Karstaag|Kaarstag]] are part of the lore here.
Hunting is the main source of income for most, the [[Bloodmoon:Horker|Horkers]] on the northern coast and nearby [[Bloodmoon:Lake Fjalding|Lake Fjalding]] are a relative easy and lucrative prey. More adventurous Skaal hunters go after the elusive [[Bloodmoon:Creatures#Snow_WolfSnow Wolf|Snow Wolf]] or [[Bloodmoon:Creatures#Snow Bear|Snow Bear]], whichwhose pelts are valued highly among them.
