The superstitious Nords revere the ancient Dragon Temples whose arches jut from the peaks like stony ribs. They associate these places with events of the distant past. Skuldafn is one of the greatest of these temples, and thus one of the most sacred.

Skuldafn is an ancient Nordic ruin on a high mountain east of Eastmarch. Skuldafn holds the only way for the living to enter Sovngarde. It serves as the main base of the Stormfist Clan, and it where their leader Fildgor Orcthane is found. One of the last quests in Eastmarch takes place here.

Skuldafn Wayshrine

Skuldafn Wayshrine is located on the northwest corner of the ruin.


  • A door to Mzulft can be found in the southeast corner of the ruins. However, the passage is blocked by rubble.
  • Skuldafn also appeared in Skyrim.
  • The area around Skuldafn is incorrectly depicted on the Tamriel map as meeting the coasts of the Inner Sea, despite there being places in the Redoran District of Morrowind (notably Blacklight) which are actually found in that area. According to Lawrence Schick, this is because Nord cartographers distorted and exaggerated this area out of both incompetence and bitterness over the extent of Dunmer territory, intentionally omitting Blacklight from the map.
