Quest Giver: Radiant
Location(s): Radiant
Reward: Blood-Kin
ID: FavorOrcsIntro

[edit] Quick Walkthrough

  1. Approach an Orc stronghold.
  2. Speak with a member of the Orc stronghold.
  3. Retrieve The Forgemaster's Fingers.
  4. Return The Forgemaster's Fingers to the chief of that stronghold.

[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

When you first approach any Orc stronghold, a guard will stop you and tell you that the stronghold is exclusively for Orcs and no outsiders will be permitted inside. However, if you ask the Orc how they can be persuaded to give you access, the guard will tell you to reclaim an item: The Forgemaster's Fingers. This item, which grants the wielder a +12 bonus to Smithing, can be collected from the randomly determined location.

When you return and give the Forgemaster's Fingers to the chief, you will be permitted to enter all strongholds and will be named Blood-Kin of the Orcs.

[edit] Radiant Options

This is a radiant quest which you can receive from an Orc living in any Orc stronghold. You will be asked to bring the item back to that stronghold's chief. The location of the quest item is randomly determined based upon the quest-giver's hold (see table below for specific options).

Possible dungeons depend upon the chief for whom you are doing the quest:

[edit] Notes

  • This quest is not offered to Orcs, who are automatically allowed full access to all Orc strongholds.
  • Becoming Blood-Kin by completing certain quests will also grant you access to Orc strongholds, and make this quest unavailable.
  • The potential quest givers are identified based on membership in the CrimeFactionOrcs faction.
  • If you do the quest The Cursed Tribe beforehand, you will automatically become Blood-Kin, though it is not explicitly mentioned.

[edit] Bugs

  • If you steal something when you enter a stronghold, and then pay off your fine, you will become accepted into the stronghold as a member. ?
  • The quest may fail to activate after agreeing to do the favor.
    • Pc22.png Possible workaround: Adding the gloves to your inventory via the console, then offering to do the quest again, will properly trigger the quest log entry, you can then remove the gloves via console and continue the quest as normal.
    • Alternatively, after you go to one stronghold and try to accept the quest, go to another stronghold and try to accept the quest again.
    • Or enter the stronghold you're at and speak to the orc that tried to give you the quest again. The option to ask how to enter should be there still.
    • Saving the game, restarting Skyrim, then repeating the dialog may also fix the quest trigger.
