Viarmo, an Altmer bard, is Headmaster of the Bards College in Solitude. He divides his time between studying, eating and arranging the famous Burning of King Olaf Festival, an annual event held by the College in Solitude’s honor. When you apply to become a Bard, he will task you with saving the Festival from cancellation during Tending the Flames.

- This bug is fixed by version 1.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
- To fix this, open the console and select Viarmo. Then, type
removeitem 0001d4ec 1, followed by
equipitem 0001d4ec, and finally
removeitem 0001d4ec 1.
- Attack Viarmo until he kneels down on the floor; he won't die as he is essential. Once he does that, he shouldn't be holding the torch any longer. A bounty will be earned if you use this method. Another method is by reverse-pickpocketing another torch into his inventory. This fixes the issue with minimal bloodshed. From then on, he will only equip the torch when appropriate.
