Location: The Silver-Tongued Traitor Mystery.


This page will offer a guide on where to locate and how to complete, The Silver-Tongued Traitor in Stavangar, Rygjafylke.

Catch the Traitor

To begin this Mystery, you’ll need to talk to Sylke Silvertongue the merchant found on the west side of Stavanger and just southeast of Harholl synchronization point. When you speak to him, Eivor will realise that he is the traitor, Sylke the Snake!

Sylke's wares are all stolen from her old settlement!

Once you have discovered his true identity, Sylke will flee from you. To complete this task, you will need to chase him down. You may either chase until you catch him or you can shoot him dead with your bow. If you decide to chase him to catch up to him, you might want to consider calling your horse by holding ‘X’. You can then quickly dismount near him by pressing ‘C’.

(1 of 2) You can either chase Sylke and confront him

You can either chase Sylke and confront him (left), or you can shoot and kill him as he runs away like a coward! (right)

Whether you decide to kill him and loot his body or catch him and spare his life, you’ll retrieve a Bloody Key for a chest in his shop. If you decide to kill him, you’ll also get an extra 10 Silver from looting his body. When you have the Bloody Key, head back to his shop and unlock the chest. Looting the chest will give you 20 Silver and 1 Ball of Yarn.
