Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Knights of the Flame garrison

Sir Edmund wants you to signal the gathered knights to storm the keep by using the siege horn, which is located atop the main hall. Enter through the great doors, then take a right and go up the stairs to the door to the battlements. The horn is directly in front of you; activate it to sound the signal. Now you need to find Sir Edmund again, so head downstairs into the hall proper. He's just inside the main doors. Talk to him to find that the surprise factor worked in their favor; the rebel knights are overwhelming their former comrades. However, there's still the matter of the commander, and Edmund is too wounded to defeat him himself. The other knights should stand down if Croix dies, so it's up to you to find and kill him. He is in the eastern garrison. Once you've put an end to him, blow the other siege horn on top of the garrison, Edmund says, and he will call for an end to the battle.

Exit the keep and head east, across a bridge. Here you'll start encountering Sir Croix's people: soldiers, enforcers, sharpshooters, and menders. Fight your way through and enter the Garrison. There's two more of them in the main room here, directly in front of you, and in the room to the right is Sir Croix himself, standing by the fireplace. When he spots you, he will say "At last, the outsider who rallies my knights to rebellion! I'm going to enjoy this!" and attack.

Once he's dead, head to the other side of the building (passing another hostile knight on the way) and through the door to the Garrison Tower. The siege horn awaits! When you head back down to find Sir Edmund, you'll find the enemies have been replaced by friendly Knights of the Flame and healers. The battle is over.

Edmund stands outside the Great Hall, grateful but grieving. He's going to assume command of the Keep now, and the attack on the Redguard camp has been called off. If you have yet to deal with with the situation at Alcaire Castle, Sir Edmund is directing you to speak to Dame Falhut and check on Sir Hughes. Otherwise, he's urging you to decide Sir Hughes' fate
