- Find the body of an Arena Fan south of Ivarstead and read the Arena Fan's Note.
- Find and kill Urgnok at the Ruins of Bthalft and take his armor.
An Adoring Fan
Upon installing the Alternative Armors - Dwarven Mail Creation, you will receive a miscellaneous objective to investigate a camp south of Ivarstead. This camp may prove difficult to find as there is no quest pointer (see bugs). It can be found just across the bridge south of Ivarstead, traveling west along the opposite bank of the river. Here you will find the body of an Arena Fan, who can be looted to obtain the Arena Fan's Note as well as a copy of The Crimson Dirks, v8. The book tells the tale of Urgnok, a former member of a gang of outlaws known as the Crimson Dirks, who left his life of crime and ascended to the rank of Bloodletter in the Imperial City Arena before being forced to flee north to Skyrim.
Upon looting the fan's note, you will receive a new miscellaneous objective to read it. Doing so will begin this quest, and will also reveal that the fan attempted to meet with this ex-combatant before his untimely death. Urgnok is apparently fighting in the local underground pits and didn't take kindly to being tracked down. The note states that he was recently spotted living at the Ruins of Bthalft, a bandit camp to the south.
Travel to Bthalft and you will find Urgnok living amongst the bandits. He will be easy to spot due to his full set of Dwarven Mail armor. Urgnok is hostile and will attack you on sight; kill him and take his armor to complete the quest. Once the quest is complete, Dwarven Mail items will begin to appear in leveled lists, meaning you will begin to find it as random loot or being worn by enemies.
- Dwarven Mail uses the same model as Dwarven armor in Blades.
- The initial miscellaneous quest does not provide a map marker showing the location of the Arena Fan's camp. However, you can get a rough guide on the area by navigating to your journal and showing the quest location on the map.
- The Arena Fan's corpse may despawn if you take too long to head to his camp.
