This quest begins immediately after On Borrowed Time. After the death of Hemming Jarl, some of the funeral festivities are getting out of hand, and Trygve has requested Eivor’s help in pacifying the situation.
To begin, speak with Trygve outside the longhouse in Hemthorpe. He will inform you about the situation, and Eivor will offer to help. You’ll find three areas within Hemthorpe where a situation needs to be resolved. To locate them, use your raven for a proper view of the settlement.
Retrieve the Fire Pot from the Burning House
We’ll start with the situation to the southwest of the longhouse, which involves retrieving a fire pot from a burning house. Speak with the woman outside the house, then enter the house from its southern end to find the pot within. You’ll need to walk through the fire to get the pot, but it won’t do enough damage to cause any serious harm as you bring it out. Place the pot on the ground next to the woman and speak with her to complete this task.
Calm the Crowd Outside the Christian’s House
Next, we’ll calm the crowd outside the triangular house northwest of the longhouse. Speak with the woman outside, then go to the back of the house and shoot the wooden barricade to enter it. Once inside, speak with the man on his knees and then take the key and open the door. You’ll have to speak with the woman again, and you can choose whatever option you prefer. All will serve to calm the crowd.
Save the Man from the Roosters
Finally, we’ll save a man from some roosters, who is surrounded by them in the ruin of a structure south of the longhouse. All you need to do is approach the man and wait for the roosters to run off. If any stay behind and continue to attack, you can kill them without consequences. When all the roosters are gone, speak with the man to finish the task.
Return to Trygve
Once you’re done with all three of the above tasks, return to Trygve at the longhouse to complete the quest.
