Misc: Stalhrim


Stalhrim is a magical ice-like substance used in nordic burial rituals.  It is meant to both protect and preserve the local nord dead.  The craftsmen of the Graring tribe mine this material for use in the smithing of exotic weapons and armour.  These activities however often put them at odds with the more conservative and superstitious Skaal tribe, who view such acts as a blasphemous desecration of their dead.


  1. Not so sure if it really counts as a superstition, given that the dead in question have a habit of getting up and walking about if they're displeased... :D

    So I take it that there are plans to replicate the original harvesting mechanic?

  2. Yep, the stalhrim can be mined like any other ore, only it requires a very specific pickaxe ;).
