Skallheim is a small town ( 2000-3000 inhabitants, majority human). Most buildings are two story wooden affairs. The docks in Skallheim are located outside of the town walls. The town’s wall is a wooden pallisade with a small trench on the outside of the palisade.
Weapons are generally not allowed within the town walls, although guards are known to have wagers with people to let them keep a weapon (if they win) or pay for the privilege of losing weapons during their stay.
The town’s mayor, in an attempt to crack down on the thieves’ guild, has issued a decree whereby thieves have started to be hung publicly.
There are a number of Inns in Skallheim.
