Side Quests

Laid to Rest

  1. Travel to the Hold City of Morthal, and observe the conversation between the city steward Aslfur and two citizens in front of Highmoon Hall.
  2. Talk to the citizens, and learn about the most recent town rumor. They will direct you to the Moorside Inn and the barkeep Jonna for more information.
  3. Go to the Moorside Inn and speak to Jonna about the burned down house. She will direct you to the Jarl of Morthal if you want to investigate the matter further.
  4. Travel to Highmoon Hall and speak with Jarl Idgrod Ravencrone (or Jarl Sorli) about the burned down house.
  5. Accept the quest to investigate the burned house.
  6. Walk over to Hroggar’s burned house, located next to the Moorside Inn.
  7. Talk to the spirit of the little girl Helgi there, and she will tell you about the fire.
  8. Agree to play a game of hide-and-seek with her, then wait until dark to begin the game.
  9. Go back to the Jarl and mention your conversation with Helgi. She will tell you the location of the town’s graveyard, which will activate the active quest icon.
  10. Wait until after dark, then follow the active quest icon to the graveyard.
  11. Defeat Laelette the Vampire when she attacks you at the graveyard.
  12. Inspect the small coffin there, and listen to Helgi, prompting the next part of the quest to activate: question Thonnir about Laelette.
  13. Wait for Thonnir to come running up to the graveyard to lament the death of his wife, Laelette.
  14. Question Thonnir about what he knows. He will mention that Laelette and Alva (Hroggar’s new woman) had recently become good friends.
  15. Stop over and tell the Jarl the latest news on Helgi.
  16. Make your way to Alva’s house and gain entrance in your preferred manner.
  17. Deal with any possible dangers once inside Alva’s house, such as being attacked by Hroggar (upstairs) and Alva (downstairs), depending on if it’s day or night.
  18. Search Alva’s coffin downstairs to find her journal. Read it to find out Morthal is under attack by vampires.
  19. Show the journal to the Jarl, and tell her about Alva and the vampire threat.
  20. Accept the quest from the Jarl to clean out the vampire nest and slay Morvarth.
  21. Travel with the mob that has gathered to help you clean out the vampire nest to the cave they are hidden in.
  22. Take Thonnir in with you (the others chicken out before entering), and let him help you, or leave him at the entrance.
  23. Follow the cavern path and kill the Frostbite Spiders you encounter as your first enemies.
  24. Go S and come to a long open cavern guarded by a Vampire Thrall. Kill it.
  25. Go N into a chamber where another Vampire Thrall is looting some dead bodies. Kill it.
  26. Continue N and reach the main chamber, where two more Vampire Thralls and Morvarth are.
  27. Consider fighting them from the upper platform in the chamber if you’re a distance fighter or spellcaster.
  28. Draw them one at a time into a narrow passage if you’re a melee fighter, so as to lessen the chance they can surround you.
  29. Search and loot the main chamber after all the vamps have been dusted, then make your exit.
  30. Return to the Jarl and tell her Morvarth and his clan are dead, and receive your reward. Quest complete!
