- Report for duty to Legate Rikke at the Reach Imperial Camp.
- Join the Legion soldiers gathering for the attack.
- Clear the fort of Stormcloak rebels.
Report for Duty
When speaking to General Tullius he will make a bitter comment about your decision to give up The Reach during Season Unending: "Hurry over to our military camp tucked away in the Reach. Ulfric's been enjoying those silver mines for far too long. And, soldier. You better help win me back Markarth, or die trying. It was your brilliant strategy to give it over to the rebels in the first place." Legate Rikke can now be found at the Reach Imperial Camp, northeast of Markarth. She will give you orders to rendezvous with a group of Imperial soldiers preparing to attack Fort Sungard and to assist in the assault.
Join the Soldiers Preparing the Assault
Fort Sungard is located far east of Markarth, and the soldiers are waiting just northeast of the fort. As you approach the group, they will draw their weapons and take off on a running pace towards the fort entrance.
Take the Fort
Assist your fellow soldiers in clearing the fort of Stormcloak rebels while the game updates you with the percentage of enemies remaining. The battle takes place in the exterior parts of the fort only, in the courtyard and on the walls.
Once you have killed all Stormcloak rebels, the quest will be completed. The Reunification of Skyrim quest will update and prompt you to return to General Tullius to report your success and receive your reward.
One achievement is unlocked at the end of this quest:
- Corpses will disappear shortly after death, so you may wish to loot them as you go to avoid missing out.
- The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 0, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 910, 920, 950, 1000, 2000, 9200, 9999.
