The farthest northern province known as Skyrim, home of the Nordic peoples and humans in general in the land of Tamriel. Originally the home the the Snow Elves, or Falmer, the Nedes, the first humans on Tamriel and direct evolutionary ancestors of the Nords (and Imperials, also crossbreeding with the Falmer, and other Mer, resulted in the Bretons), crossed the Sea of Ghosts from the frozen, arctic wasteland continent of Atmora and arrived on Tamriel, eventually causing the the extiction of the Falmer. Atmora eventually 'died', covered in frost, anyone or anything left on the continent dying out.
Each skyrim city is likely to contain places to buy and sell everything. The most nordic city will probably be the most northerly one. Near to Morrowind will be like Cheydinhal (but colder) and closer to Hammerfell more like Anvil (but colder).
