This page details how to begin and complete the A Distorted Dream main quest, part of the Isle of Skye A Fated Encounter DLC crossover arc. The information on this page is mostly covered on the How to Begin A Fated Encounter DLC page.
How to Begin A Distorted Dream and Reach the Isle of Skye
This quest becomes available once you’ve reached settlement level 4 and built Valka’s Hut in Ravensthorpe. Once you’ve done these two things (in no particular order), you can visit Valka’s hut to find and speak with a woman named Edyt. Head west from Valka’s Hut to find Edyt’s small camp, and speak with her to begin a cutscene.
The scene with Valka and Edyt will briefly introduce you to the problems the Isle of Skye has been facing, with its people being plagued by nightmares to the point of madness. Valka thinks Eivor is the perfect person to investigate. Valka is concerned that the nightmares may eventually spread to Ravensthorpe, and she also believes that somehow, Randvi may be involved, or even responsible for the nightmares. You can choose between two dialogue options in response to this, but it doesn’t matter which one you go for. The outcome will be the same. After the brief exchange of words, you can travel to the Isle of Skye by speaking with Edyt.
