Kill the bandit leader located at Valtheim Keep

To get this miscellaneous quest go talk to the innkeeper Mralki and ask him for leads on work. He’ll give you this bounty letter from the Jarl’s men (which is likely a radiant quest). Valtheim Keep is located to the east of Whiterun. Head over there and take out the bandits (and bandit chief) that you find. You’ll need to collect your reward from Whiterun’s steward, Proventus Avenicci, to complete this and gain your 100 gold reward.

Talk to Mralki about Erik

Out working in the fields you’ll find Erik, who wants to be an adventurer like you, but his dad won’t let him. He wants you to talk to his dad for him. His dad Mralki runs the inn, so go see him and either persuade, intimidate, or spend some money to convince him to let his son do as he wishes. Return to Erik and tell him the good news to finish this misc. quest.

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.
