This mission can be activated by speaking with Edla in the Skaal Village . The woman will tell you that her adolescent son wants to leave the village and explore the world. It’s a very dangerous dream, so his mother is very worried about him.

Of course, as a known adventurer, you can convince the young man to let go of his plans – that way you will make the woman happy and earn her gratitude. Nikulas can be found inside the village – usually he walks along the streets or sits on a bench by the entrance. There are a few ways of convincing him to stay:

  • Give him money – a small gift will certainly solve the case;
  • Intimidate him – a good threat isn’t bad (if you have the proper skills;
  • Convince him – rational arguments can be effective (if you manage to Persuade him).
    Regardless of which option you choose, the young man will decide to stay in the village for some time. Now you have to tell his mother about everything and collect your prize.

Speak to Edla

After completing the objective, meet with Edla and receive her gratitude.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are well suited for the bitter cold and mountainous terrain which defines the land. Now scarred by civil war, Skyrim faces its darkest days with the return of the legendary dragons and their leader, the World-Eater Alduin. The future of Skyrim and even the lands beyond hangs in the balance, as the people await the prophesized Dragonborn, a hero born with the power of The Voice and the only one who can contend with the dragons. You are that Dragonborn; your task is to investigate why the dragons are returning, and discover a way to defeat them. At the same time, you’re free to explore Skyrim at your own pace, uncovering its many wonders along the way.
