Detailed WalkthroughEdit

A Stolen TreasureEdit

Kharjo is a Khajiit caravan guard traveling with Ahkari. Due to the roving nature of his occupation he can be difficult to track down, but keep in mind that Ahkari's caravan makes stops just outside of Dawnstar and Riften.

When speaking to Kharjo, he will remark that the caravan was ambushed by a group of bandits. Normally, the Khajiit are able to scare away this type of nuisance, but this time the bandits made off with his heirloom amulet. The amulet was given to him by his mother when he was a cub, and is the only thing to keep him warm in this cold land. When you tell him that you will retrieve it for him, he is appreciative of your desire to help, but will also say that it is not enough to lose your life over. He will then send you to the randomly determined bandit hideout.

Find the AmuletEdit

This is a list of possible locations for the Amulet:

Eastmarch Falkreath Hold Haafingar Hjaalmarch The Pale The Rift Whiterun Hold Winterhold SolstheimDB
Cragslane Cavern
Gallows Rock
Lost Knife Hideout
Stony Creek Cave
Uttering Hills Camp
Bilegulch Mine
Cracked Tusk Keep
Embershard Mine
Knifepoint Ridge
Broken Oar Grotto Orotheim
Robber's Gorge
Frostmere Crypt Broken Helm Hollow
Faldar's Tooth
Rift Watchtower
Treva's Watch
Halted Stream Camp
Redoran's Retreat
Swindler's Den
Valtheim Keep
White River Watch
Fort Fellhammer Bloodskal Barrow
Damphall Mine
Hrodulf's House

Acquiring the amulet will involve visiting the hideout in question. Track down, and either slay or sneak past its bandit inhabitants to take the amulet from the boss chest at the end of the dungeon. Return to Kharjo, but be aware that he may have moved or could be on the road while you are looking for him.

Your RewardEdit

Once you find him, Kharjo will be most pleased to have the Moon Amulet again. He will give you a leveled amount of gold and becomes a potential follower.

Levels Reward
1–9 400
10–19 600
20–29 800
30–39 1,000
40+ 1,200


  • When looking for Kharjo, a good strategy is to simply use the "Wait" function outside of one of the cities where his caravan stops until he arrives.
  • The Moon Amulet can be safely pickpocketed, looted, or traded from Kharjo after the quest.


  • If the quest directs you to Broken Oar Grotto, Cracked Tusk Keep, or Frostmere Crypt, check to see if you have already visited these locations on your map. These locations do not respawn, so if you have been there before, the Amulet cannot spawn there and you cannot complete the quest.
    •   The Unofficial Skyrim Patch, version 2.1.0, addresses this issue. However, there are reports that the bug may still occur even with the fix.
    • You will need to reload a previous save to get a different location from Kharjo.

Quest StagesEdit

Stage Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Objective 10: Find the Moon Amulet inside <Alias=Dungeon>
Objective 15: Return the Moon Amulet to Kharjo
20 Finishes quest 
  • The following empty quest stages were omitted from the table: 200.
  • Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the Radiant Quest system, and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • 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.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage FreeformCaravansA stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages, but it is possible to clear all stages of the quest using resetquest FreeformCaravansA.
