So, you want to free the land of the Imperials, huh? Can’t say I blame you, they DID try to cut off your head after all. Well, chances are that if you’ve talked to any Stormcloak soldiers or Stormcloak supporters you already have the miscellaneous quest “Join the Stormcloak rebellion”. But what you want to do if you have a mind to knock around some Imperial skulls is to travel to the city of Windhelm. Head to the back of the city and enter the “Palace of the Kings”. Here you can find the leader of the Stormcloak rebellion, Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak. If you ask him if you can join, he well tell you to talk to his second in command, Galmar Stone-Fist.

Talk to Galmar Stone-Fist, who will ask why you want to join them if you’re not a Nord. Answer as you will and he will give you a test before he lets you join. He will want you to go to Serpentstone Isle to kill an Ice Wraith. This ends the beginning miscellaneous quest and starts a MAIN quest entitled “Joining the Stormcloaks”.

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.
