Ok, the last Quest of the Civil War - Imperials. Fast travel to Windhelm Stables and speak to Tullius. Afterwards, head inside Windhelm. There’s really not much to say about this part. All doors are master locked, so it’s probably even a waste of time and lockpicks to try entering any of ‘em unless you’re good at lockpicking. There are obviously Stormcloaks galore here.

Make your way to the north side of the city while destroying barricades and killing Stormcloaks. Tullius is alongside you, along with Rikke, so its impossible to lose. The direct route is blocked off, so you’ll need to take a more round-about path to the left to reach the north side of the city. It’s fairly linear and the path will have barricades thrown in at choke points. Once you head to the north side, enter the Palace of Kings…

Once Galmar is taken care of, attack Ulfric with all you’ve got. Not a hard battle at all. Now, time for a decision: Either you, Dovakiin, kill Ulfric, or let Tullius do it. Pick whichever you want, as it really doesn’t matter.

Once you get in here, Rikke and Tullius start talking to Ulfric and Galmar. After some chit chat, you’ll fight them. Take out Galmar ASAP since he’s more dangerous than Ulfric. Ulfric WILL use his ‘Unrelenting Force’ shout during this battle, which is entertaining.

Now, you get to keep Tullius’ sword and the quest will end, as well as the Reunification of Skyrim Quest. Tullius will head outside and give a speech, so go listen if you wish. Congrats on ending the Stormcloak rebellion!

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.
