Now we need to go to either the Nightgale Inn or the Candlehearth Hall. Go to either of these and speak to the Inn keeper. You can either Bribe them, Persuade them or Intimidate them, or just wait around in the Inn. The Courier travels from both inns. He stays at either Inn for an hour, sleeps for another hour and then leaves to the other inn.

If you either Bribe, Intimidate or Persuade him, he’ll tell you that he just left and that you might be able to still catch him. Leave either inn and go catch him.

He’s got a marker on his head, which makes things a whole lot easier. Loot the body for the Stormcloak Documents and return to Rikke. She tells you now to go to Dawnstar.

Fast travel there and enter the barracks. Speak to Frorkmar Banner-Torn and the quest will end.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. You are that Dragonborn.
