Time to trundle off to the wizards school in Winterhold (so hopefully you’ll have already accessed this place via the main story missions, otherwise you’ll have to complete a few of those before you can go any further with this DLC mission).

Head up to the library, chat to ‘Urag gro-Shub’ and this’ll begin the non-DLC mission Discerning the Transmundane. If you’ve already completed this mission (and you haven’t sold the scroll to a librarian for gold), then you’re in luck as you’ll still have the scroll! Hurray!

If you sold it previously, then you’ll need to conjure up 4,000 gold for the scroll (or 2,000 if you’re an Arch-Mage). Got both scrolls now? Good! Back to Fort Dawnguard for you!

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.
