Urshilaku Camp

The Urshilaku Camp was in the northwest corner of the Ashlands region, above the Foyada Bani-Dad. Travelers wishing to find the camp could have gone up the foyada from Maar Gan, or east from Khuul. There was a pass on the eastern side of the foyada, which was located north of two Dwemer ruins, visible but not accessible from the foyada. Striking east, there were a few moderate hills, as well as the Daedric shrine of Assurnabitashpi. This shrine was well avoided by any but the hardiest of explorers. The Urshilaku Camp was not too far beyond the shrine, on the far side.

The Urshilaku were the westernmost of the Ashlander tribes, whose territory covered the northwestern side of the Red Mountain. They were ethnologically interesting, and were perhaps the most traditional of the Ashlander tribes, because they maintained a strong link to their cultural past, and traditions of the Dunmer hero Nerevar. Nowhere was the Nerevarine Cult stronger, and Nibani Maesa, the Urshilaku wise woman, was a recognized guardian of the cult as well as the Ashkhan of the Urshilaku, Sul-Matuul.

The Urshilaku, like all Ashlanders, were not very open with strangers, but they were not generally hostile if their ways were respected. Every effort would have been made to understand Ashlander customs before traveling in the area. While the Urshilaku are interesting culturally, travelers would've also been advised to take their own supplies. The camp had only one trader, Kurapli, and she had a very limited range of merchandise.
