After completing a number of jobs in Whiterun (5 or so, I think…), Delvin will have this “Special Job” for you. We are to go talk to Olfrid Battle-Born, a wealthy merchant who needs help. Go over to Whiterun and find him. He’ll tell you about his friend Arn, who is slated for execution and is in the local jail. He doesn’t want him broke out though, instead he wants us to get into the Jarl’s Quarters and steal a letter from Solitude warning Whiterun about Arn, and then changing his name in the Steward’s prisoner registry…

Head on up to Dragonsreach and enter (be sure to save). Head up past the throne (the stairs are on the right) and enter the Jarl’s Quarters through the big double doors to the left. Once inside, enter the door on the right to find the prison registry and forge the names. EASY. Now, head up the stairs and enter the middle door, then the door on the right to find the Jarl’s study. Make sure you’re hidden and take the letter on the desk. Again, easy…

Return to Olfrid and let him know you’re done. He’ll wonder who this Arn guy is that you’re talking about! He’ll also give you a Ring of Replenishing as a thank you token. Return to Delvin now and let him know you’re done.

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.
