Jehenna[edit]

Jehanna, also spelled Jehenna or Jelhana, is a major city of northeastern High Rock, and one of High Rock's eight kingdoms. The city was invaded by the Nords during the War of the Bend'r-mahk in 3E 397, who seized large tracts of land that had belonged to High Rock and Hammerfell, claiming that they were once traditionally kingdoms of Skyrim. It is mentioned in the popular series of novels A Dance in Fire as the home of a disgruntled Nordic diplomat who was sent to Valenwood. In 2E 582, a jetty bearing the name Jehanna Docks was situated in a similar location on the coast of northern Wrothgar.

Jerall Mountains[edit]

The Jerall Mountains are a mountain range on the border between Cyrodiil and Skyrim. They meet the Velothi and Valus Mountains at the Morrowind border, and the Dragontail Mountains at the Hammerfell border. The Jeralls are rugged, steep, and inhospitable, with only a few traversable passes. Of particular note is the Pale Pass, which was the site of the abrupt end to the First Akaviri Invasion in 1E 2703, after which its location was lost, only being rediscovered in 3E 433.

Jode's Light[edit]

Jode's Light (Ja'zennji Siir in Ta'agra) is an abandoned Khajiiti temple located in the border region of Reaper's March, on the side of the province of Elsweyr. Jode's Light was built in the mid-First Era, during the days of the first Manes, by the Moon Bishop Thizzrini as a place for safe meditation for all moon-monks, no matter what furstock they were born into. The site was abandoned when the Thrassian Plague struck in 1E 2200, and subsequently fell into ruin. The dro-m'Athra inhabited the temple following the Colovian invasion under the command of Javad Tharn. A Khajiiti pilgrim later travelled to Jode's Light seeking peace and solitude in order to meditate. He encountered the dro-m'Athra and resolved the contain the threat within the ruins. He eventually succumbed when the Soulless One came across the ruins, though the Soulless One managed to defeat the dro-m'Athra.

Jylkurfyk[edit]

Jylkurfyk was a southern coastal city on Atmora. Yngol commissioned two ships, the Darumzu and the Harakk, from the city's large shipyard for Ysgramor's legendary voyage to Skyrim.[1]
