Convince all parties to attend a truce negotiation
Return to High Hrothgar for the negotiations.
Take your seat at the negotiating table.
Negotiate the treaty.
Head over to High Hrothgar and find Arngeir (he’s probably in the courtyard meditating or in his bed sleeping). When he learns that he is needed to stop the civil war he will agree to help (only because Paarthurnax is helping you, though). He will tell you to go talk to Ulfric Stormcloak and General Tullius and get them to come meet him at High Hrothgar.
Let’s go talk to General Tullius first. Head on over to Solitude where he is located at and head into the castle. You should be able to find him pretty easy, and convincing him to go to the peace meeting isn’t that hard either, so just talk to him about the meeting until he agrees.
Next let’s go find Ulfric Stormcloak. You’ll find him at Windhelm, most likely inside the Palace of the Kings. He’s a tad easier to convince and get to go to the peace meeting than General Tullius is, so you shouldn’t have a problem talking him into it.
Once you are done you will have completed Season Unending. At this point you should go back up to the previous main quest, The Fallen, and finish this.
After convincing both of them, go back to High Hrothgar and talk to Arngeir. You’ll see the blades force their way into the meeting, even though the grey beards are at odds with them. Head to the conference room (follow the objective) and take your seat. Here you will have to help guide the talks as you are asked for your thoughts on the matter.
Make no mistake, things will change as a result of these talks but it needs to be done. Personally, I gave Dawnstar to the imperials and let the stormcloaks have Markarth. In the meantime both sides accused me of liking the other but a truce was finally agreed to. Make no mistake, things will change as a result of these talks but it needs to be done.
