This mission is very short and to the point: Give the Jarl of Whiterun Ulfric’s Axe and let him make up his mind on who he’s going to join. Head to Whiterun/Dragonreach and give the Jarl the axe. He’ll consort with his advisor’s for awhile and will finally decide to join the Imperials, giving you back the axe and writing a letter to the Imperials for aid.

Return to the Palace of the Kings and let Ulfric know. He will consort with Galmar and will decide the time has come to take Whiterun by force. He will tell you to meet Galmar at the camp outside of Whiterun for your next set of orders. This ends the current quest and starts the next quest: “Battle for Whiterun”.

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.
