A dead courier

Couriers are generic NPCs who will occasionally approach you to deliver messages. These messages sometimes serve to initiate a quest (miscellaneous or regular) and sometimes play a role in advancing a currently activated quest forward. A courier can appear anywhere in the province of Skyrim, as well as on Solstheim.

Using a dragon shout in public view can increase the probability of a contact with a courier; after doing so, he will usually appear some time later with a letter that activates a miscellaneous quest directing you to a location where they may find an undiscovered word wall. He will also occasionally bring other kinds of messages, such as a letter of inheritance.

When randomly encountered, perhaps walking along a road, you can pickpocket the courier for a courier's letter. These refer to semi-random locations and have no quest objectives connected to them. They will update your map if you have not been to the location mentioned.

[edit] Notes

  • You can read the note while in his inventory, therefore avoiding any risk of being caught.
  • After Hearthfire is installed, you may receive a letter from a jarl regarding a piece of land for sale. This letter is not necessary to purchase the related property.
  • After Hearthfire is installed, you may receive a letter from Constance Michel in Riften about adoption. This letter is not required to adopt homeless orphans.

[edit] Bugs

  • The courier occasionally arrives wearing little or no clothes, which he never replaces. Each subsequent meeting with him will either see him wearing the same or even less clothing.
    • This bug is fixed by version 1.9 of the Official Skyrim Patch.
    • This can sometimes be fixed by reverse-pickpocketing new armor or clothes onto him.
