Clear Redbelly Mine of spiders

Not a very hard task, to be honest. Go talk to the blacksmith, Filnjar. Ask about the mine to learn spiders have taken it over. Offer to clear it out for him. The mine is to the right of his house and inside you will find about SIX Frostbite spiders. Take them all out and tell Filnjar you are done for a 750 gold reward.

Deliver the satchel to Verner in Darkwater Crossing

You can get this quest by talking to the miner Sylgja. She’ll ask if you are headed to Darkwater Crossing. Ask her about it to learn she wants you to take a satchel that way. Agree to do it. Darkwater Crossing is to the northwest and poses no danger. Give the satchel to Verner and he’ll give you one for Syjgja. Return to Sylgja and give it to her for a reward: a silver jeweled necklace. You can now also marry her if you wish. .

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.
