Kenshi Wiki

Skinner's Roam is a fairly large rocky desert territory controlled by the The Holy Nation but initially not actually patrolled by them. They control multiple Holy Mines in the area, some of them abandoned.

This lack of patrols allows huge groups of hungry bandits to harass travelers.

Skinner's Roam is also known for the huge dust wall that might have ruined one of the Holy Mines.


There are no Major Towns in Skinner's Roam.
