Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Falco Galenus[edit]

For the next series of quests you'll have to leave town and wait for about 3 days until you receive a journal entry. Return and speak to Falco about your next assignment to have him tell you that he may be assassinated. He wants you to stick close to him for protection.

Guard Duty[edit]

Stick close to Falco for a short while until you are attacked and receive a journal entry (about 30 seconds or something). Baslod and Cimber Valerius attack using bows while Capiton Popillius uses a longsword. The three guards and Falco should do fine by themselves, but feel free to lend a hand.

Return to Falco[edit]

Once the three are dead, return and speak to Falco and receive a reward of 1000 gold, 10 Restore Health potions and an Ice Shield (un-enchanted).


  • The quest will not actually be offered until you leave Raven Rock; waiting in Raven Rock for three days will not give you the journal entry until you actually leave town.


  • The Assassins may become passive towards you, Falco, and the colony guard(s).
    • Use Frenzy Humanoid or Taunt to reinitiate combat with them without a bounty, if all combat has stopped; they must be killed to complete the quest.

Quest Stages[edit]

The following Quest_ID and Index codes can be used with the Journal Console command to manually update the quest to a certain point.
