Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Fish poisoner and note writer

In the wilds near Morthal, you may come across a strange note in variety of circumstances. It can be found near a dead woman, a harpy in its nest, or a sabre cat next to a fish. Read the letter. The author claims responsibility for the poison that killed whatever you found it near, and offers a reward for bringing the note back to him.

Head to Morthal and find Angrar, who is fishing around the docks. Ask him about the letter.

"Careful not to disturb the fish, stranger. Hard enough to catch them as is, and even when I manage, they get stolen anyway! I'm sick of feeding thieves. I can barely feed my family!"
I found this note. Is it yours?
"Yes, that's mine! Eugh… smells awful. Looks like something may have swallowed it.
I guess that was the point, eh? Where did you find it?"

He asks you where you found it. Your response will depend on where you found the note and fish. Regardless of how you found them, you will receive some gold and a belt for your troubles.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
