Have a chat with Sorine and she’ll mention someone called Florentius Banius who’s worth recruiting, but you’ll need to speak with Isran about it first (hence our warning above). You’ll need to head to a place called ‘Ruunvald Excavation’ (found south-east of Tovald’s cave).

Climb the mountain until you reach the snowy entrance to the cave. You can read the journal in the tent (should you want some back-story), otherwise, head inside the double wooden doors.

Run down the stairs, kill the Charmed Vigilant and loot his body for a decent amount of loot and potions. Downstairs is another charmed vigilant and an apprentice locked chest. Head into the main cave system and kill any vigilants that get in your way.

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.
