 Detailed Walkthrough
 Tharsten Heart-Fang
Talk to Tharsten Heart-Fang in the Greathall of Skaal Village and mention your business here, and if you have the Skaal warrior skull, Tharsten will accept it with some gratitude and welcome you to the village, for the moment at least. Tharsten goes on for a bit about how the Imperials are corrupting the land and eventually about how to restore the power of the Skaal. Tharsten tells you to speak with Korst Wind-Eye in the Shaman's Hut for more information.
If your partner in the previous The Frostmoth Smugglers quest died, you may be attacked by the other warrior once you return to the fort, and thus be prevented from getting the skull.
 Skaal Shaman
The Shaman's Hut is just west of the Greathall and Korst is just inside. Mention that you are looking to restore the power of the Skaal and he'll tell you that you must find the six Standing Stones somewhere on Solstheim and complete a ritual at each one. Once this Ritual of the Gifts is completed, the Oneness should be restored to the Skaal. The Oneness is explained to you as the balance or harmony of all things in the world given by the All-Maker. This balance has been upset, in part by the presence of the Imperials, and thus the power of the Skaal has decreased.
 Ritual of the Gifts
Ask Korst Wind-Eye about the rituals and he'll give you a copy of The Story of Aevar Stone-Singer as well as the Locations of the Stones which is a map of the six stone locations. The map is particularly useful and the story of the ritual does give you more information than you get during the quests themselves from journal entries. The six steps in the ritual are listed below in the same order that they appear in the book, however you can perform the steps in any order you wish, and you do not have to complete one before starting another. Each ritual is entered into your journal as a separate quest, and they will require you to travel to a good deal of the island. The quests you must complete are:
- The Ritual of Water
- The Ritual of Earth
- The Ritual of Beasts
- The Ritual of Trees
- The Ritual of the Sun
- The Ritual of the Winds
 Complete the Ritual
Once you have completed all six portions of the Ritual of the Gifts, you will receive a journal entry to return to Heart-Fang in the Greathall of the Skaal Village. Tharsten Heart-Fang will reward you with the Mace of Aevar Stone-Singer and tell you that you must still prove your wisdom to the Skaal.
