This weapon is one of several Thane weapons awarded after becoming Thane of the respective hold.


All of the weapons properties except the name are randomly generated.


Material - Can range from Iron to Daedric.


The weapons appearance matches that of a generic weapon of the same type and material. The weapon will also bear a colored glow and pattern appropriate to the enchantment.


The Blade of the Pale is awarded by the Jarl of Dawnstar, Skald the Elder (or Brina Merilis) after becoming an honorary Thane. To become Thane the following conditions must be met:


This weapon is semi-unique and may not be crafted, however an identical version can be crafted with the generic material and a matching enchantment applied. The weapon may also be titled with the same name during enchanting.

The upgrade material is dependent on the material that the weapon was generated with.


  • This weapon serves as the badge of office for the Thane of The Pale.
  • If a reload is performed and the weapon is retrieved again, it will be the same. This means that there are unknown factors determining what weapon is generated. At higher levels iron is surprisingly the material of the weapon.

  •  PC   360   PS3  It is possible to receive the blade twice since the Dragonborne can become Thane of Dawnstar under both Skald the Elder and Brina Merilis however the second blade may be made of different material from the first one.
