This mission can be activated by speaking with Edla in the Skaal Village . The woman will tell you that her adolescent son wants to leave the village and explore the world. It’s a very dangerous dream, so his mother is very worried about him.

Of course, as a known adventurer, you can convince the young man to let go of his plans – that way you will make the woman happy and earn her gratitude. Nikulas can be found inside the village – usually he walks along the streets or sits on a bench by the entrance. There are a few ways of convincing him to stay:

  • Give him money – a small gift will certainly solve the case;
  • Intimidate him – a good threat isn’t bad (if you have the proper skills;
  • Convince him – rational arguments can be effective (if you manage to Persuade him).

Regardless of which option you choose, the young man will decide to stay in the village for some time. Now you have to tell his mother about everything and collect your prize.

Speak to Edla

After completing the objective, meet with Edla and receive her gratitude.

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.
