Camilla Valerius is at the center of a love triangle.

[edit] Quick Walkthrough

  1. (Optional) Learn about the love triangle from town people.
  2. Talk to Sven or Faendal about the love triangle.
    • (Optional) Talk to the other man involved in the love triangle (Sven if you talked to Faendal first and vice versa).
  3. Give the letter to Camilla Valerius.
  4. Return to the man you decided to help to finish the quest.

[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

When you go to the Sleeping Giant Inn located in Riverwood, approach Sven, the bard. While talking to him, you find out about his love for Camilla, and about the love triangle between him, Camilla and Faendal. Sven will then ask you for a favour: deliver a forged letter supposedly written by Faendal to Camilla. Or, if you have spoken to Faendal, he will ask you to deliver a forged letter supposedly written by Sven. Camilla is usually at the Riverwood Trader, but at night she can sometimes be found at the Sleeping Giant Inn. Instead of giving Camilla Sven’s letter, you can tell Faendal about it. In turn, he too forges a letter supposedly written by Sven and asks you to deliver it to Camilla instead. Both letters include something that will anger Camilla and lead her to hating one of the characters (or both). Alternatively, you could choose the third option: telling Camilla it's fake. No matter which way you choose, you always get twenty-five gold and you'll be able to choose the one you've helped as follower.

It is also possible to pickpocket both letters off the two characters and produce both letters to Camilla, who will then hate both of them.

[edit] Notes

My Dearest Camilla,

I yearn to have you as my own,
Washing my linens,
And my fine blond hair,
To cook my dinner from my stove,
And tend to my house while I wander.

Yours truly,

Dear Camilla,

I know I have called upon you at your house many times, and while
we may be growing close, I need you to put any desires you may
have for me aside. I am a true-born son of Valenwood,
and I could never befoul my bloodline by courting an Imperial.
I hope we can remain true friends, provided you understand
your people's place in the Aldmeri Dominion, and respect me as such.

Sincerely, Faendal

  • Faendal makes a good follower because he is an Archery trainer. You can train the skill and later retrieve all the money you spent on the training from his inventory.
  • It is not possible to complete this quest in a manner that has both Sven and Faendal as followers and to have their dispositions friendly towards you.
  • In a particularly sneaky move, you can marry Camilla yourself after completing The Golden Claw quest. Strangely enough, marrying her does not solve this quest. Solving this quest after marrying Camilla will cause the 'winner' to appear at your house, should Camilla have moved in.
