At least they appreciate the ways and traditions of the Nord people. Can't say I ever much liked the idea of the Empire telling us what to do an' how to do it. Dragonborn Can you tell me anything else about what's going on? Fralia Gray-Mane Thorald's disappearance has been hard on all of us, but Avulstein has taken it badly. He's afraid of being taken as well, so he hasn't left the house. All he talks about is Thorald. Please, help Avulstein if you can.

Something has to be done, or we're all going to lose our minds. I need to find it and bring to Avulstein. The evidence will be in the form of a book called Imperial Missiveand you will find it behind the first door on the left on the desk of the locked room expert. Deliver proof to Avulstein[ edit edit source ] Head back to the house of the Gray-Manes and give the proof to Avulstein.
The proof discloses that Thorald is at Northwatch Keep. Meet Avulstein at Northwatch Keep[ edit edit source ] At this point, you are given three different choices to take on the rest of the side quest.
You make your decision when you talk to Avulstein about the proof. You can obtain the necessary information in a few ways. If you're familiar with the art of theft, you can break into the house and steal the Imperial Missive from the room on the left. If you're disgusted by theft, you can persuade Idolaf Battle-Born to tell you everything he knows Persuasion.
If that wouldn't meet your expectation as well, you can steal a key to the room with the Imperial Missive from any of the inhabitants and take the note. Eventually, if you don't have anything against blackmail, you can steal the compromising love letters from Jon.

Apparently the Thalmor have caught Thorald and are keeping him in an old imperial stronghold. Your interlocutor is however determined to free his brother - he will do anything to complete this task. At this point you can agree to accompany him in his attack on the Northwatch Keep Avulstein will join your party or state that you will do it alone.
Regardless of the method, you're in for a hard time with Elves. Find a way to release Thorald from Thalmor custody Theoretically there are two ways of completing this mission: In reality the second plan has no way of succeeding - as only you rescue Thorald, the guards throughout the keep will be alerted and you will need to fight them.
In such situation the optimum solution is heading out with Avulstein and showing the Thalmor hell on earth. The Northwatch Keep can be found at a very remote part of Skyrim. In order to get there, you will need to head to Solitude and afterwards go north-west expect lots of wild animals and Bandits on your way. Sneaking into the stronghold is very hard, or even impossible.
Solving the whole case peacefully is out of reach as well, as the Thalmor cannot be convinced to your right in any way. Therefore it's best to just attack the keep - it's guarded by only seven Elves, so if you lure them out and kill one after another, you shouldn't have too many problems especially with help from Avulstein. Massacre them, enter the keep and start looking for Thorald.
There's about a dozen of them here, including three mages. Try exploring this area step by step, without going too far too fast - otherwise you might get flooded by enemies. I'd suggest using skills typical for thieves, such as Sneak and Archery - the element of surprise pays a big role in the beginning.
