Retrieve the Symbol of Hrokkibeg from Gwerina's pack
I came across the body of Apprentice Gwerina. She apparently died while bringing a sacred relic to a shrine in Markarth.

Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Read the letter and take the Symbol of Hrokkibeg from Gwerina's pack.
  2. Return the relic to the Shrine of the Hunt-Father in Markarth.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

While traveling through the Reach's central region, you may find the corpse of Apprentice Gwerina near a letter and a backpack. The Letter to Apprentice Gwerina tells you that Gwerina was instructed to deliver something called the Symbol of Hrokkibeg by High Shaman Glynroch, a man who is erecting a shrine to Hircine in Markarth.

Take the Symbol of Hrokkibeg out of Gwerina's pack and head west to Markarth. The Shrine of the Hunt-Father is in central Markarth, and can be accessed by climbing the stairs on the southern side of the mountain in the center of the city. The easiest way to get there is to travel to the Markarth Wayshrine, head north, and keep climbing stairs. You should find the shrine if you just walk straight ahead after arriving at the wayshrine. Speak with High Shaman Glynroch and give him the totem. He laments Gwerina's death and thanks you for retrieving the totem in her stead.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
