Quest Giver: Falion

Reward: 200 gold

Falion's mysterious destination

[edit] Quick Walkthrough

  1. Follow Falion to his destination at 1 am.
  2. Ask Falion what he is doing at the summoning circle.
  3. Report Falion to the Jarl of Morthal

[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

If you inquire around Morthal about the wizard in town, you are told that he seems to be up to something; specifically, that he goes out into the marsh in the middle of the night to cast spells. If you wait near his house until 1 am, you can follow him to the marshes to what appears to be a summoning circle (presumably related to Falion's specialty, Conjuration). Upon confronting him, he will demand that you leave him to his "work" and never speak to anyone about what you observed that night, although he won't reveal precisely what his work is. However, in a conversation with Agni, she will say that she had a "bad dream" in which Falion went away and made "monsters" while she slept, which he dismisses as only a dream. You can agree to keep quiet, or blackmail him for 200 gold. Regardless of your choice, you may then report him to the jarl if you so desire.

[edit] Reporting to the Jarl

After reporting Falion to the jarl, she will immediately find and confront him, threatening dire consequences for Falion if he continues his actions. The scene differs depending on the current jarl - Sorli the Builder or Idgrod Ravencrone.

Idgrod Ravencrone Sorli the Builder
Idgrod Ravencrone: "Falion, I am disappointed."
Falion: "What is the meaning of this?"
Idgrod: "You've been exploring places you shouldn't, and you know it."
Idgrod: "It stops at once, or else there will be consequences of an unpleasant nature. Do you understand?"
Falion: "I... Yes, I understand."
Sorli the Builder: "I'm told that you're up to something out in the marsh, Falion."
Falion: "What is the meaning of this?"
Sorli: "I don't even want to know what it is you've been doing."
Sorli: "It doesn't happen again, or else I'll have you thrown in jail. Clear?"
Falion: "I... Yes, I understand."

[edit] Notes

  • Despite the warning, Falion will continue to visit the summoning circle each night as usual, and the jarl will remain oblivious to his continued behavior.

[edit] Bugs

  • The scene may not play, and the jarl will instead permanently follow Falion without interacting with him.
