Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Carnius Magius[edit]

If you sided with Carnius you'll get this quest from him in Fort Frostmoth. He'll complain about getting things done and tell you to go speak with Falco in Raven Rock about problems in the construction. If you sided with Falco just go see him to start this quest.

Falco Galenus[edit]

Speak to Falco to learn about the current problems in construction. Apparently Baro Egnatius has demanded a ludicrous amount of extra payment for the shipment of ebony ore he is supposed to deliver to the mainland. Falco wants you to have a talk with Baro in order to convince him otherwise.

Baro Egnatius[edit]

Baro is down by the new docks in Raven Rock and seems quite adamant about being paid extra. Even a good deal of persuasion has no effect on him, but he will mention Elberoth, the late captain of the wrecked ship you found earlier in the Missing Supply Ship quest. Apparently, Baro doesn't know about his fellow captain's recent demise. Return to Falco with the news (ask him about extra payment again) and Falco will tell you to speak with Apronia about the matter, suggesting there is some way to exploit Baro's connection to Elberoth.


Apronia, the lady you previously rescued from the lost ship, is located near to Falco. Speak to her about Elberoth and you should be able to easily receive Elberoth's Saber from her. Note that if she died previously, it is still possible to finish this quest by retrieving this Saber from her corpse.

Return to Falco with the Saber and talk to him about Elberoth. He suggests that you confront Baro with the Saber since it doesn't appear that Baro knows of Elberoth's death.

Confront Baro[edit]

Back to Baro you go, but first equip and unsheathe your sword. If you don't Baro will mention something cryptic about the saber and Elberoth, hinting that you should equip it and unsheathe it. Once you do, Baro will immediately recognize the saber and rather ungracefully back down from his desire to receive extra payment.

Return to Falco/Carnius[edit]

Once you've intimidated Baro sufficiently, return with the news to Falco who will reward you with 1000 gold (if you sided with him). If you sided with Carnius, return to tell him the news after telling Falco, and you will receive the 1000 gold as well as 10 Cure Common Disease potions.


  • If you didn't rescue Apronia during the Missing Supply Ship quest, Falco will suggest you look around the shipwreck site and see if there's anything you missed. Apronia's corpse doesn't disappear, so the saber should still be on her body if she died.
  • You can also kill or pickpocket Apronia to get the saber (if she has the sword equipped, you'll need to use a Disintegrate Weapon spell to break it and then pickpocket her).


  • Talking to Baro Egnatius with a weapon drawn (other than Elberoth's saber) or fists readied may make him unwilling to talk, so put your weapons away before approaching him. This may also happen if your hands are readied for a spell, and may make him unwilling to talk, regardless what you do with your hands.
    • PC You can use the Console code Journal CO_5 30 to get past this and move on to the Apronia-related steps.
  • If Apronia dies for some reason after she arrives at Raven Rock, Falco will still suggest that you talk to her.

Quest Stages[edit]

Supply Route Problems (CO_5)
Index Finishes Quest Journal Entry
10 There's some sort of problem with the new supply ship at the colony. Carnius has asked me to check in with Falco and deal with it.
20 Falco has told me that the new supply ship has arrived, but the captain, Baro Egnatius, won't budge without some sort of extra payment. Falco has no intention of paying him, and instead wants me to talk sense into him. He should be at the dock in Raven Rock.
30 Baro Egnatius was extremely rude to me, and demanded a large sum of money to transport the colony's goods. He won't budge until he has this extra payment.
40 Falco suggested I ask Apronia about Elberoth, since Baro seems to know him.
50 Apronia gave me Elberoth's saber, since she no longer needs it.
55 Falco suggested I make a point of displaying Elberoth's saber in front of Baro Egnatius.
60 Baro Egnatius recognized Elberoth's saber while I was holding it, and mistakenly thinks I killed Elberoth. This works in my favor, since he's now willing to transport the goods without any extra payment.
65 The news of the supply ship needs to get back to Carnius.
70 ☑Finishes quest Carnius was grateful that the situation with the supply ship had been resolved, and thanked me for dealing with it.
80 ☑Finishes quest Falco thanked me for straightening out the situation with Baro.
200 I killed Baro Egnatius.
210 ☑Finishes quest Since Baro is dead, I've failed my assignment and receive no reward.
