The ransom note

[edit] Quick Walkthrough

  1. Kill the bandits attacking your home.
  2. Read the note to discover where your spouse is.
  3. Rescue your spouse through violence, or pay the ransom.

[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

At some point you may arrive at your newly constructed house to find a group of bandits attacking it. Kill the bandits and then loot them to discover a note that explains why they were attacking. You will discover that your spouse has been kidnapped by Rochelle the Red, and she is demanding 5000 gold for your spouse's safe release.

Travel to Rochelle's hideout, as indicated by the note, and make your choice to deal with the situation through violence or by paying the ransom. If you pay the ransom, your spouse will be safely returned to you. If you choose violence, you will need to kill all the bandits in the dungeon to safely rescue your loved one.

[edit] Radiant Options

The bandit camp will be in the same hold as the house from which your spouse was taken.

Heljarchen Hall Lakeview Manor Windstad Manor
Frostmere Crypt Bilegulch Mine

Robber's Gorge

[edit] Notes

  • This quest will not occur unless your spouse is living in one of the three constructable homes added by Hearthfire, nor (obviously) will it occur if your spouse is currently following you.
  • If you have a housecarl (Gregor, Rayya, or Valdimar) staying in the house where your spouse is, Rochelle the Red will attack you outside your home rather than kidnapping your spouse.

[edit] Bugs

  • The quest may automatically complete itself. If this happens your spouse should be at your home.
    • The best solution is to load an earlier save after reading the location of the bandits and go directly there instead of going to your home.
  • Whether the quest has been completed or not, your spouse may become badly bugged and walk backwards.
    • Return to a save that is far back enough that the quest has not been triggered, and move your spouse to a city.
    • Pc22.png You can solve this bug by opening the console, clicking on your spouse, and using the resurrect command.
    • Pc22.png If your spouse becomes bugged somewhere other than home, you can find them by using player.moveto <RefID#>. Nudging the spouse might set them back on the path, but they will still be bugged when arriving home.
