Skilpaddeberg is a village off the coast of the legendary mountain tortoise 
“Skilpadde”. After the cataclysmic event that occurred in Mal Stram to the south, 
the massive tortoise emerged from its shell much to the surprise of the surrounding village. Some of the villagers around Skilpaddeberg celebrated their newfound 
guardian and devoted their lives to worshiping the creature. The village relies on the valley’s wind to power their homes. Several windmills were built on top of Skillpaddeberg, becoming an iconic symbol within the village.
