Skingrad also known as the Gem of Old Colovia[1] is a city located along the Gold Road in the great plains of the West Weald. One of Skingrad's most prominent citizens was King Rislav Larich otherwise known as Rislav the Righteous.


The city is considered one of the most cleanest, safest, prosperous cities in all of Cyrodiil. It models the Colovian virtues of independence, hardwork, and tough-mindedness.[1]


Skingrad is similiar to the city of Bravil in that there is large divide in the middle of the city. The gold road is located within the divide with two paths leading into the city. The city is divided into two. The northern side is where the town square, guilds, inn, and craftsmen are located. There is also some small housing in this area unlike the southern side, where it consist of mostly residential houses and the chapel. There is a gate on the northern side that leads to Castle Skingrad which is left alone from the rest of the city.

First EraEdit

The year 1E 448, the righteous hero Rislav Larich was born to Queen Lynada and King Mhorus as the youngest sibling of three boys and four girls. Sometime later, both Skingrad and Kvatch were considered great rivals. In 1E 472, the conflict between the two nations ended with the marriage between Rislav and Belene of Kvatch. A few years later in 1E 478, a plague hit the city of Skingrad killing many including members of the royal family. The only two remaining were, Rislav and his brother Dorald Larich. Dorald returned to Skingrad from the Imperial City and became king of Skingrad. His first edict was to bring the city of Skingrad to the Alessian Empire, with which Rislav disagreed. This resulted in a deal between Rislav and Dorald which ended with Rislav taking the position of king. Skingrad under Rislav faced the Alessian Army in numbers and in multiple battles. After joining Kvatch and the kings of Western Colovia, Skingrad was able to defeat the Alessian Hegemony.[3]
