 Detailed Walkthrough
This is an umbrella quest, involving several other quests that must be completed if you wish to become Thane of Eastmarch. You will have to capture Whiterun and Falkreath for the Stormcloaks (if you joined the Stormcloaks) or complete The Battle For Windhelm (if you sided with the Imperials) before this quest becomes available.
The reward, the Axe of Eastmarch, is a random, leveled, enchanted axe. There is a 50% chance that it will be a war axe (one-handed), and a 50% chance it will be a battleaxe (two-handed). You will also receive a housecarl named Calder, who will be waiting for you at Hjerim.

- After finishing the quest "Battle for Windhelm" for the Imperials, Brunwulf Free-Winter sometimes won't appear in the Palace of the Kings. All Stormcloak-supporting Jarls and their housecarls will be there sitting at a table, but without Brunwulf in the Palace. Without him, you are unable to purchase Hjerim or become Thane of Eastmarch if you have not already.
