The Sload of Thras have always terrorized the Altmer of the Summerset Isles. One of their larger attacks was known as the Sack of Skywatch where the Sload conjured Sea Serpents to lay siege on the great city of Skywatch. Hightide Keep located underneath Skywatch, was once a defensive fortification from the time of the Aldmer. Because of this, Skywatch managed to defend itself from the Sload. Powerful magic was used to destroy dozen of Sload Warships. The city finally fell when a Sload Warcaster filled his voluminous gullet with volatile alchemical reagents and threw himself at the base of the cliffs.
