Radiant Options[edit]

This is a radiant quest which is received from Igmund, if he is the current Jarl of Markarth. The forsworn outpost is chosen from the following list:

The Reach
Broken Tower Redoubt
Bruca's Leap Redoubt
Deepwood Redoubt
Dragon Bridge Overlook
Druadach Redoubt
Hag Rock Redoubt
Red Eagle Redoubt
Serpent's Bluff Redoubt

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Jarl Igmund to initiate quest.
  2. Travel to the dungeon.
  3. Kill the Forsworn Leader.
  4. Return to Jarl Igmund in Understone Keep to collect the gold reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Travel to Understone Keep in Markarth and speak to Jarl Igmund to initiate the quest in which you have to kill a Forsworn Leader. He will direct you to a dungeon in The Reach, which is where the Forsworn Leader is hiding. You must travel there and face the leader.

Once you travel to the dungeon you will most likely have to deal with most leveled Forsworn before you can eliminate the leader.


Once you have dealt with him/her, return to Understone Keep to collect your reward from Jarl Igmund.

Levels Reward
1-9 400
10-19 600
20-29 800
30-39 1,000
40+ 1,200


  • If Raerek is in a room with an adept lock, wait until he is sitting by the Jarl to receive your reward. He is there by 10am.


  • It is possible to accept this quest and then find that all NPCs are non-aggressive towards you at the site. If this is the case feel free to kill or pickpocket any non-named NPCs (normally simply named "Forsworn") because none of the other NPCs will attack you.
