Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Report for Duty[edit]

When speaking to General Tullius he will make a bitter comment about your decision to give up Hjaalmarch during Season Unending. He will then direct you to Legate Rikke at the Hjaalmarch Imperial Camp. She will give you orders to rendezvous with a group of Imperial soldiers preparing to attack Fort Snowhawk and to assist in the assault.

Join the Soldiers Preparing the Assault[edit]

Make your way to Fort Snowhawk. The fort is located a small ways west of hold capital Morthal, and the soldiers are waiting just southwest of the fort. As you approach the group, they will draw their weapons and attack the fort.

Take the Fort[edit]

Assist your fellow soldiers in clearing the fort of Stormcloak rebels while the game updates you with the percentage of enemies remaining. The battle takes place in the exterior parts of the fort only, in the courtyard and on the walls.

Once you have killed all Stormcloak rebels, the quest will be completed. The Reunification of Skyrim quest will update and prompt you to return to General Tullius to report your success and receive your reward.


  • Corpses will disappear shortly after death, so you may wish to loot them as you go to avoid missing out.

  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 0, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 910, 920, 950, 1000, 2000, 9200, 9999.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • 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.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage CWFortSiegeFort stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest CWFortSiegeFort.
