Yath is a large island in the Yokudan Island chain, in the northern part of the Sea of Pearls. Due south of Akos Kasaz, Yath is arid and rugged, with a spine of jagged mountains. Colonists from Yath settled in the Ayleid ruins of Salas En, inhabiting the site for over a thousand years until being driven out around the time of the Thrassian Plague.

Yellow Road

The Yellow Road road runs north to south from the Imperial City to Leyawiin along the east side of Niben Bay.

Yeorth Burrowland

Yeorth Burrowland is an area near Anticlere in southern High Rock. Two notable locations are close by, Ravennian Forest and Cryngaine Field. The forest is where the armies of Sentinel camped after the battle of Reich Gradkeep and before the Battle of Cryngaine Field. The 18th of Morning Star is known as the Waking Day, when the people of the Yeorth Burrowland wake the spirits of nature after the winter, somewhat like their more reverential ancestors, in one of the oldest holidays in High Rock.


Ykalon was a Third Era fiefdom in High Rock, in the Iliac Bay. It was surrounded by Phrygias to the northeast, Daenia and Urvaius to the east, and Northmoor and Ilessan Hills to the south. Its capital was the city of Ykalon. Castle Llugwych, a former headquarters of the Blades, was located in this region. Thrafey vampires were known to stalk prey here, and the regional deity was Mara. Forces from Ykalon participated in the Battle of Firewaves which brought about the defeat of the Camoran Usurper. Perserverance Day was a festival held every year by the people of Ykalon during Sun's Dawn, though it was originally a solemn day of memorial for those killed in the battle.


Yneslea is a region of land that lies somewhere between Tamriel and Akavir. It was conquered by Uriel Septim V in 3E 279 during the opening stages of his campaign against the Dragon Land. By 3E 288, unrest had broken out, causing the emperor to divert two legions that had been intended as reinforcements to pacify the inhabitants instead, ultimately contributing to the failure of the invasion.


Yokuda foi um continente a oeste de Tamriel que afundou no mar durante a Primeira Era. Era o lar ancestral dos Rubraguardas, assim como de uma suposta raça Aldmeri extinta conhecida como Elfos Canhotos. Foi o local de nascimento de muitos heróis Rubraguardas famosos, incluindo Frandar Hunding e seu filho Divad. Também foi a nação que deu origem à lendária tradição marcial de sword-singing. O idioma nativo de Yokuda era chamado Yoku, mas após a migração Yokudana para Martelfell em 1E 808, foi quase completamente substituída para ajudar a estabilizar o comércio exterior.

Lake Yorgrim

Lake Yorgrim is a lake in the eastern Pale, to the west of Windhelm. It is the source of River Yorgrim. In or around the time of the Dragon War, the dragon Viinturuth was killed and then interred in a burial mound near the shores of the lake.

River Yorgrim

The River Yorgrim (also called the Yorgrim River) is a short tributary in Skyrim which connects Lake Yorgrim to the White River. It flows east out of the eponymous lake in the Pale and enters Eastmarch, dropping through a series of waterfalls and rapids until it merges with the White River near the entrance to Windhelm. A dragon burial mound is located near the river, and superstition about nearby caves leaves many locals reticent to swim in its waters.
