or return to the Bloodmoon Quests page.
- Tharsten Heart-Fang
- After completing the lengthy Ritual of the Gifts for the Skaal, Tharsten Heart-Fang in the Greathall
still wants you to prove you loyalty to the Skaal. He asks you to investigate a crime involving
the Skaal Engar Ice-Mane, who is accused of theft, and Rigmor Halfhand. Tharsten explains that
Rigmor claims to have had some furs stolen by Engar which were found in his home. If guilty, it
is most likely that Engar will be sacrificed to the wolves. You are to investigate the matter
and see who is telling the truth.
- The Investigation
- Both of the homes are close to the Greathall in the small town, so visit both of them to get their
stories of the events. Rigmor has nothing much to add, other than he does not know why
Ice-Mane stole anything from him. You'll get the same idea from talking to people around
town who seem adamant that Ice-Mane is innocent of the crime. Engar is not home, but his
wife, Risi, is so talk to her about the crime. Risi further states that Engar is innocent
and suggests that someone, possibly Rigmor, may have framed him to disgrace him.
Engar can be found outside wandering just East of his house. He doesn't have much else
to add to the information you've already uncovered.
- The Affair
- By this time you might have noticed the subtle hints from people that might indicate that
Risi Ice-Mane and Rigmor Halfhand had a little intimate relationship, although no one
will say that right out. If this were true, it may provide a motice for Rigmor to falsely
accuse Engar of theft. Take a closer look around the Ice-Mane's house and under the pillow
of one of the beds you'll find a telling letter from Rigmor to Risi.
Confront Risi about the note (ask her about Rigmor Halfhand) and she will confirm
that they had a short affair. Go and confront Rigmor about the affair who will confirm
the entire thing.
- Return to Tharsten
- Return to Tharsten in the Greathall about the news you've learned and he'll tell you the fate
of Rigmor up to you, either exile or the Wolves. Choose Exile to receive the Helm of the
Wolf's Heart (constant effect agility/sneak +5) as your reward. You receive the same reward
no matter which punishment you choose. If you choose sacrifice Tharsten will congratulate
you on showing Halfhand mercy by letting him die with honor. You are asked to lead the
accused to the wolf pen. You'll find Halfhand outside where you'll follow him to the wolf
pen where he'll be attacked (the wolves disappear once he dies).
Note that since Rigmor's hut is now empty you'd think it would make a great place to rest and store loot.
Resting is fine but at after some point, you are rewarded with his house, only they change the name and thus
the interior cell, meaning that anything you had stored there will 'disappear'.
If it is already to late, open the command console and type in:
player->coc "Skaal Village, Rigmor's Hut"
and press enter. It will warp you to the inside of the house, where you can pick up your equipment. When you have
everything, just walk out the door and it will go back to being the Bloodskal's house when you walk back in.
