What determines which Jarl?[edit]

This note can presumably be sent by the current Jarl of either Dawnstar, Falkreath, or Morthal. (Who those are depends on the Civil War, of course.) I just wonder if it's random, or if there are factors which determine it. My first character had not joined either side in the war by the time I installed HF, and received the letter from Dawnstar. (She later joined the Stormcloaks, but this is irrelevant.) My second character joined the Legion fairly early on, and got his letter from Falkreath. He still hasn't been able to buy land in The Pale - likely because the Jarl of Dawnstar is an avid Stormcloak supporter. I'm guessing I'll have to wait on that until I do enough of the Civil War to retake The Pale for the Legion. Morthal and Falkreath both start out allied to the Legion, so I'm guessing they're more likely for Legion members. Does anyone know more precisely how this works? Or is it really just random? — TheRealLurlock (talk) 22:20, 23 February 2013 (GMT)

I've never received a letter from anyone but Siddgeir in Falkreath. I've created three different characters since installing Hearthfire and in each one I received a letter from Siddgeir, not long after turning in the Dragonstone. It was far too early in each character's file to join any factions or even make it to any cities other than Whiterun, so I have no idea what influences which Jarl sends the letter, especially since my experience has been to only get letters from a single Jarl. At this point I'm half expecting to get a letter from Siddgeir for each character I create.Lord Nordeck (talk) 02:26, 23 June 2013 (GMT)
I got it from the Jarl of Dawnstar, which is what prompted me to make the page as it wasn't documented on the wiki yet. Again, I hadn't ventured far into the game as I had made a new character to play the DLC. Silence is GoldenBreak the Silence 02:51, 23 June 2013 (GMT)
