– Detailed Walkthrough –
Murilam Dalen, the Pact envoy in Windhelm, is standing on the docks near the entrance into the city. Windhelm’s citizens are celebrating King Jorunn’s tenth anniversary as the Skald King—a celebration known as the Konunleikar where Nord clans compete in various challenges in order to honor the king. He asks you to speak to Thane Mera Stormcloak, the captain of the Windhelm guard.
Thane Mera is standing in the center of the town, next to the Palace of Ysgramor. Enter the city through the open gate behind Murilam Dalen, then go right, then left. You should see a well and a gathering of people. Take the stairs on the right up to the third level of the city. Thane Mera is next to a large wooden door and red Pact banners.
An Enemy from the Past
The Thane is worried about the strange reappearance of the Stormfist clan; they haven’t been seen in 10 years. Every since this year’s games started, there have been many injuries and even a few deaths. Thane Mera Stormcloak asks you to ask around the Cold Moon Inn, where the clan is staying, to learn more information. If you ask her more questions, you can learn that the Stormfists wanted Jorunn’s brother, Fildgor, to be king.
Cold Moon Inn is southeast of Thane Mera. Go upstairs, and read Leimaer the Raven’s Journal, which is on the ground next to the last bed on the right. One of the Stormfists has hidden caches around the city, so that the clan can cheat.
Confiscate the Caches
The caches look like glowing sacks.
“Where mount and mare rest calm and easy”
This cache is hidden in the stables, across from the Cold Moon Inn. Inside is a note from “L” and a knife to cut through armor.
“Between a moon that’s cold and a wizard’s hoard”
In the street behind the Cold Moon Inn is another cache. This one has a noisemaker arrow to scare off the prey in a hunting competition, according to L’s note.
The final two caches are on the west side of Windhelm.
“Behind a cracked henge stone, west and breezy”
This cache is behind one of the long upright stones at the southern end of the city. It contains incense.
“At the rear of Windhelm’s only abstaining Nord”
This is the northern of the final two caches, hidden next to some rocks behind the other Inn. It contains poison.
Once you find all four hidden caches, return to Thane Mera Stormcloak outside the Palace of Ysgramor. She gives you some gold—now you need to find out what’s really happening in Windhelm.
