The Skeleton Skull is an item resembling the remains of a once living man of the free folk. They are usually scattered around orc camps to enhance the fact that they eat man flesh. What use do they have for the skull? - They just throw it on the ground and expect it intimidates any man that wanders too close. They can also be obtained as a drop from Barrow-Wights, and are used to craft Skull Cups and Orc Skull Staves. They can be worn as a helmet, but offer no protection.
