The Dragonstone[edit]

The Dragonstone

The Dragonstone is an ancient object of great importance to the Dragon Cult. On one face is markings on a map that reveals the location of fallen Dragons loyal to Alduin. The opposite face contains a short inscription pledging their resolve to wait for his return. It can be retreived in game from a Draugr Overlord in Bleak Falls Barrow. It can be retrieved during The Golden Claw, but will not be needed until Farengar Secret-Fire asks for it to be retrieved during the quest Bleak Falls Barrow. If picked up early, you'll be carrying around 25 extra pounds of weight that can't be dropped.

Map of Dragon Burials[edit]

During A Blade in the Dark the Blades leader, Delphine, will reveal that Alduin is resurrecting Dragons from burial mounds all over Skyrim. Using the Dragonstone's map face she has created a map of the burial sites and predicted which one would be resurrected next. Using either this map or the Dragonstone the player can search out and find the burial mounds from all over Skyrim.

Dragon Burial Sites[edit]

Each Dragon burial mound contains a long deceased Dragon loyal to Alduin. As you progress through the game, Alduin will systematically resurrect the Dragons long buried in the mounds. This is a major part of the quest A Blade in the Dark. Although Alduin will have begun to open mounds before that quest ever starts. Mounds can be found in two states, open or closed. If visited during the correct time frame however it is possible to encounter the resurrected Dragon or even witness the moment of resurrection. The time frame is measured in terms of main quest progression rather than in game days. If the time frame for a Dragon mound encounter passes, the Dragon may move on and only an empty mound will be found.
