Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Kill an NPC.
  2. Receive a letter from a courier.
  3. (Conditional) Visit the letter's sender for a reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When you kill a person, it is possible you will be given a message from a courier from that person's enemy, claiming that they hated the person too and are glad you took care of them. If the relationship between the enemy and the victim was foe or worse, the person thanking you will request that you visit them for a reward through a reward letter. Else they will just send you a letter of thanks.

The reward is 50 gold for each relationship rank below zero.


  • Rich enemies were supposed to give a reward of 200 gold per rank, but no NPCs in the game are flagged as rich.


  • It is possible for the Dragonborn to receive a letter from themselves, rendering it impossible to complete the quest normally. ?
  • If the relationship between enemy and victim is -3 (enemy) or worse, the reward letter will be delivered, but the objective to collect the reward will not be given.
