Vahskali (/vɑsˈkɑli/) is a mostly abandoned Stormhowl settlement located far southwest of Bloodfort, and directly south of Thunderfall Canyon. It is the fifth settlement visited by the party. During the main story, it is occupied exclusively by Ewan Caill.
Ruins of Vahskali
In its initial appearance, Vahskali is practically empty, possessing only a Waygate marker, two ruined pillars, and Ewan’s Shinn. It is covered in the same grey rock found throughout Thunderfall Canyon, indicating that it was affected by the same volcanic eruption that reshaped the canyon.
(See this section for more details.)
After returning to Vahskali in the post-game, the town is revealed to have started growing grass again. The party is given the opportunity to upgrade the settlement, causing new structures to be added.
The Shinn is a multipurpose building constructed by Ewan to serve as both a shop and an inn. By standing directly in front of either counter in the Shinn, Ewan will rush over to that side of the building to assist the party.
Ewan’s lack of access to building supplies when constructing the Shinn apparently led him to build and “carve” the structure himself.
Vahskali traditionally served as the seat of power for Clan Stormhowl’s noble family, making it a common location for members of the Clan to live and work. Following the breaking of the line of succession and Vahskali’s destruction in the same event that reshaped Thunderfall Canyon, the few surviving Stormhowl Fieli dispersed throughout the rest of the Storynth.
