Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Just Another Day on the Farm[edit]

Salvius Farmhouse is just to the east of Markarth Stables as you approach Markarth. The farm is tended by Rogatus Salvius and his wife Vigdis, and Salvius will be outside during most of the daylight hours. Speaking to him will reveal a caustic nature and a long list of complaints. At the moment, he is upset at his son who works at the Old Hroldan Inn and never visits. He'll ask you to do him a favor by delivering a letter admonishing his son for his familial neglect.

Some Things Never Change[edit]

Old Hroldan Inn is across the hold, almost directly east of Markarth. Traveling along the road will take you near a few Forsworn encampments, but should be relatively safe. It can also be approached by traveling over the mountains to the west of Rorikstead. Leontius Salvius is typically outside chopping wood or on the porch during the day. He can be found inside the inn at night. He'll thank you for the letter, wistfully reproaching the content, and pay you twenty-five gold for delivering the letter.



  • Rogatus may not have any dialogue when you try to return his letter.
    • Try the usual methods, such as restarting, resetting, cache clearing, and resting. Coming back after doing other things may work as well.
  • If pickpocketed back from Leontius, the letter will still be marked as a quest item and can't be dropped.
    • Typing player.removeitem 000931c2 1 into the console will remove it from the player's inventory.
