The Icewind Peaks is the southeastern region of Eastmarch. It includes the towns of Wittestadr and Cragwallow on its northern border, but the south is too mountainous to be very populated. The ancient ruin of Skuldafn sits on a mountaintop to the east. The Icewind Peaks Dolmen lies roughly in the center of the region, in the hills southeast of the towns. It borders The Rift to the south. The Giant’s Run region lies to the north, while Frostwater Tundra borders on the west.

You will need to complete the quests in order from 1 – 5; the quest givers are marked on the maps below. Once you have completed Songs of Sovngarde in the Icewind Peaks questing zone, you will be rewarded a skill point.

Continue talking to Hlotild the Fox to start this quest.

“I’ve been waiting for you to arrive.”

Why were you expecting me?

“Prince Irnskar commanded me to keep watch. He wants to speak to you. He’s on the battlements at the east gate, watching the movements of Fildgor Orcthane’s troops.”

I’ll find Prince Irnskar.

“Things are quiet here. For now.”

You can ask her about the king’s health; he is growing stronger and is commanding troops at Jorunn’s Stand. You can also ask about how the prince is getting along with the other rulers. While things are still a little tense, the prince has tried to make amends for his behavior.
The prince is on a wooden bridge overlooking the eastern gate. He wants to regain the confidence of the Dunmer and the Argonians. You must speak to their leaders, General Yeveth Noramil and Eyes-of-Steel.

Eyes-of-Steel wants to measure your worthiness to speak for the prince. She asks you if war makes a person stronger. You can reply it depends, or intimidate her, if you have the perk, telling her to be upfront with her opinion. If you intimidate her, she asks you to challenge Hald Bitterblade, the Stormfist commander, at the east hill and to bring her his head.

General Noramil wants you to make a blood contract. He asks you to use his dagger, Viper’s Strike, on cultists to charge it.

You need to gather Bitterblade’s head, and power the dagger. Both are to the east. If you follow the path out the east gate, it will take you past lots of Stormfists and Hald Bitterblade is at the end of it, next to the door.

Once you have completed both requests, return to the leaders and give them their requested items. Both of them agree to work with the prince.

Return to Prince Irnskar with the good news.

I completed the tasks for the Argonian and Dark Elf leaders.

“I received word that General Yeveth Noramil and Eyes-of-Steel will meet with me. I’ll show them the respect they deserve and work to strengthen our alliance. Once again, your aid advances our cause. You have my gratitude.”

– Detailed Walkthrough –

Continue talking to Queen Nurnhilde’s ghost. Fildgor forced his way into Sovngarde and is close to stealing her essence. He opened a bridge between Tamriel and Sovngarde. She will speak to the Watcher at the Bridge for you, allowing you to enter Sovngarde as her champion.

Exit through the door behind her and to the left, then make your way around the Stormfists and up the stairs to Skuldafn’s peak. Step into the light, and you are transported to Sovngarde. Fildgor is working at the altar across from you.

“You! You’ve been a thorn in my side for too long.”

Knockdowns work well in this fight, and he can use the spirits of the dead to boost his health. However, as much as he proclaims that you cannot beat him, you do. Talk to him.

“You beat me. I lose to my cursed brother. Again. Perhaps he is the better ruler. Regardless, in front of my ancestors and my sister, I am undone. Do what you will with me.”

You surrender?

“What choice do I have? Even with Sovngarde’s power to aid me, I lost. The Crown of Freydis rejects me. The thorn in my side became my undoing. You’ve won. What will you do with me now?”

You can choose to let King Jorunn decide or to kill him right away. If you choose to let Jorunn decide, Fildgor says you have strength and honor. He agrees to face his brother’s judgement. Regardless, talk to Queen Nurnhilde. You tell her about your decision. She thinks you should have killed him, but she realizes she is cold and detached.

Return to Skuldafn through the beam of light. Talk to the king. If you chose not to kill him, the king almost wishes you had killed him because he doesn’t want to kill his brother (the penalty for treason). If you have the Persuasion Perk, you can ask the king to spare his life.

The Moot
King Jorunn: “Esteemed allies, I stand before my ancestors and this lonely dragon shrine to seal our pact with great blood.”

Eyes-of-Steel: “I stand on this mountain, displaying how far the Argonians have come. In the name of my people, I add my voice to form this Ebonheart Pact.”

General Yeveth Noramil: “I represent the Dunmer and the Tribunal. I stand on this…frigid rock to affirm our place in the Ebonheart Pact. I fervently hope we can move this along since it’s freezing up here.”

Jorunn: “The Nords offer the Crown of Freydis, the symbol of power and wisdom provided by the Pact with the strength and authority of our Nord ancestors.”

Noramil: “The Dunmer offer the Judgement of Veloth, an artifact of ancient magic. This provides the Pact with our skills and the blessing of the Tribunal.”

Eyes-of-Steel: “The Argonians offer the Mnemic Egg, sacred symbol of birth and life, thus granting our wisdom and memories of the Hist to the Pact. With these offerings, the pact is sealed. Let our nations become one.”

Noramil: “Further, the Dunmer call for a single leader to hold this pact together. We believe Skald-King Jorunn is the one to lead us.”

Jorunn: “Let out enemies tremble at our combined might. I accept the role of High King of the Ebonheart Pact. We have much to discuss her. Please, Champion, return to Jorunn’s Stand and tell my son what has transpired.”

Talk to Prince Irnskar at Jorunn’s Stand. He names you the King’s Arrow, for your perseverance and striking true. He gives you a reward. if you chose to save Fildgor, he will express happiness at his father’s mercy.
