I have been reading my book Lord of Souls (Sequel to the Infernal City, elder scrolls novels) and in the book our plucky adventurers happen across a castle named Castle Sathil. As I was adventuring through Solstheim in Skyrim I havent found the said castle. If someone has found it could you alert me to its general direction if not do you know why it isnt in the game. I find it quite strange. I also havent found the village Sathil and over the 160 yrs between the book and the game it wouldnt of dissapeared

I haven't read the books but Sathil isn't mentioned in the game, and I believe it's just one of those things that was left out due to constraints and their scope of the game.

In video games they have limited resources of what they can depict and create such as villages and landmarks. Skyrim and Solstheim obviously aren't built to a 1:1 scale, so inevitably places are left out.

At times they leave subtle hints of events or places that are in the books; such as Ysolda's rumor about the floating city. I guess Sathil is just one that just didn't make it into the game.

It's actually possible that it simply hasn't survived the 150 years since Lord of Souls was set, you'd be surprised what that can do to a landscape if the people have reason to change it. Some places don't even leave noticeable ruins under the right circumstances (especially if it was scavenged for building materials or even had something else built in its place), after all.

I got the books off of Amazon. I began reading The Infernal City, but haven't done anything with them for a while.
