- Talk to Aela in Whiterun.
- Travel to the designated hideout.
- Kill the Silver Hand leader.
- Return to Aela.
All of the radiant locations contain good loot. See the appropriate location's page, listed above, to find out where the loot is. There are a lot of Silver Hand, though, and the leader is often a lot harder to kill. Once the leader is dead (explore the location like you would in a regular dungeon or camp) return to Aela in Jorrvaskr, and she will give you leveled gold and start the next quest, either Retrieval or Stealing Plans.
- This quest uses the Radiant Quest System to randomly generate a target location and waypoint for the objectives. In some cases the waypoint will lead to a random spot adjacent to the designated quest location. This is caused when you have previously killed the Silver Hand leader.
- This bug is fixed by version 1.6 of the Official Skyrim Patch.
- If the quest is given but no waypoint is provided, and killing all NPCs at given location does nothing, the quest is most likely not activated.
- To see if any quest is active, type showquesttargets in the console in-game. Look for 'CR09', the ID for this quest.
- If not there, yet the quest is clearly in your quest tab, the quest can be completed by simply writing completequest cr09 in the console in-game.
- The quest completion should pop up, and returning to Aela should give you the follow-up quest in the Companion quest chain.
