Dawnstar is a city on the northern coast of Skyrim, and the capital of the Pale.

It is a fishing and mining settlement which is initially controlled by the Stormcloaks.

The residents will report having horrible nightmares, which some initially blame on a witch's curse. It is frequently attacked by dragons.

For historical information about Dawnstar, see the lore article.

  • The Iron-Breaker Mine is located to the left of The White Hall (when facing it) at the far end of town.
  • A blacksmith's Forge and Hide Tanner are at Rustleif's house in the northwest, by the water.
  • Ahkari's hidden merchant chest is located in Dawnstar and is accessible due to a bug. See Ahkari's page for details.
