Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Travel to Falkreath and talk to Jarl Siddgeir in order to initiate this quest. The quest will involve you traveling to an assigned dungeon and killing the bandit leader, which at low levels can prove quite a challenge.

After traveling to the assigned dungeon you will only have to kill the bandit leader of that dungeon, killing the lesser enemies is not mandatory, but would make your job easier.


Return to Siddgeir to collect your reward of gold.

  • Siddgeir is the only Jarl of Falkreath who gives this quest, which is the last prerequisite he requires before starting the Thane of Falkreath quest. If Dengeir is jarl, then he will already consider you a friend, and start that quest without any further prerequisites.
