OverviewEdit

Prerequisites: None
Faction: N/A
Quest giver: Rumors in Cheydinhal
Reward: Level-dependent gold

BackgroundEdit

After asking around in Cheydinhal, you'll discover that Captain of the Guard Ulrich Leland has been imposing excessive and inappropriate fines all over town. One of the citizens, Llevana Nedaren, is upset and plans do something about it.

WalkthroughEdit

Speak to Llevana Nedaren, who is upset with the inappropriate fines imposed by Captain of the Guard Ulrich Leland. Llevana tells you about Aldos Othran, a citizen of Cheydinhal that had his home seized because he couldn't pay his fines for drunkenness and disorderly conduct. She recommends you talk with Garrus Darelliun, the Ulrich's second in command. Raise his disposition to at least 60. Garrus tells you he needs Aldos to testify against Ulrich. Speak to Aldos and he attempts to reenter his house. He ends up dying in a fight with the town guard. From here you can take two paths.

Method OneEdit

Talk with Garrus again and use the key he gives you to break into Ulrich's quarters. On a dresser you'll find an incriminating letter that states the high fines are being pocketed to finance Ulrich's new estate outside Cyrodiil. The letter should be on top of a book on the dresser, but the letter may have dropped from the dresser, so if you don't immediately find it, search carefully.

Take the letter to Garrus, who uses it to oust Ulrich, and is promoted to Captain of the Guard. Garrus will ask that you meet him in the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn in two hours. Meet him there and you'll get a gold reward depending on your level.

After the quest, Llevana tells you that although she's happy Ulrich was removed from his post, she's still saddened that there wasn't true retribution for Aldos. She believes in the code of an-eye-for-an-eye and it's hard for her not to see that through. However, she and everyone else appreciates what you have done for them.

Method TwoEdit

Talk with Llevana again, and she says she'll 'take care of' Ulrich. Talk with Ulrich and prompt him to follow you to Llevana's house. Once inside, Llevana paralyzes Ulrich and summons giant rats to kill him. Llevana says she has no regrets.

Afterward, talk with Garrus. He'll arrest Llevana, but will do his best to lighten her prison sentence. He'll ask that you meet him in the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn in two hours. Meet him there and you'll get a gold reward depending on your level. However, it will be less than if you followed through with method one.

NotesEdit

  • A low-level character doing this can follow Method 2 and loot Ulrich's body for his equipment, acquiring chainmail armor and a silver war axe with relative ease.
  • If you have the Wizard's Tower plugin and have an Atronach Familiar, it will attack the summoned rats. The rats are marked as essential, and so can only be knocked unconscious. Eventually, your Atronach will die. The rats then turn on one another, and the quest cannot be completed.
  • Additionally, if you have not done the Main Quest: Bruma Gate and Allies for Bruma, it is recommended that you do not start this quest yet, as Ulrich is one of the strongest fighters who will assist you.
  • If the player has attained a high level (13+), more likely the guards would die on the Defense of Bruma quest, and there could be a journal entity saying that: "One of the persons involving in this quest has been killed".

Journal entriesEdit

Upon hearing of rumors in Cheydinhal:

I was told by one of the townspeople in Cheydinhal that the guards have been imposing heavy and unfair fines lately. This seemed to being ever since the new Captain of the Guard, Ulrich Leland, took office. I was referred to Llevana Nedaren, who lives in the south end of town, as she is the most vocal about her dislike of the new commander.

After speaking with Llevana:

Llevana Nedaren told me about the plight of a good friend of hers, Aldos Othran. She explained how he was evicted from his home for non-payment of fines and expressed her hatred of Ulrich. She mentioned that Ulrich's second in command, Garrus Darelliun, seemed sympathetic to the people's plight. I should speak to Garrus next about this matter.

After speaking with Garrus:

Garrus Darelliun let me know his dislike of his commanding officer and took it a step further by letting me know he thinks Ulrich is pocketing much of the money from the inflated fines. He said I should speak to Aldos, as Garrus needs a witness to bring Ulrich to justice.

After speaking with Aldos:

I found Aldus, drunk as usual. He begged me to follow him back to his old house where wanted [sic] me to witness something. I should follow.

After Aldos is killed by the guard:

Aldos Othran has been slain by a Cheydinhal guard. He has led me to his old house, where he exchanged heated words with the guards. During the argument, Aldos pulled a knife and the guard put him down. I should tell Llevana the sad news.

After speaking to Llevana about Aldos's death:

Llevana was furious after I told her of Aldos's fate. She wants me to go speak to Ulrich and somehow convince him to follow me back to her house, where she would "take care of him." This doesn't sound like the best method to deal with Ulrich. I think I should speak to Garrus first then decide how to handle this situation.

After speaking to Garrus about Aldos's death and Llevana's plan:

Garrus was saddened by the news of Aldos's death. He vowed to bring Ulrich to justice by any means. He suggested the only way to incriminate the Captain would be by searching his quarters. He is suggesting that I sneak in there and look for such evidence. I'll have to decide if I want to do this Garrus's way or Llevana's way.

Method OneEdit

If you decide to do it Garrus's way and search Ulrich's quarters:

In Ulrich's quarters, I've discovered a letter he wrote to some relatives outside of Cyrodiil. In it, he talks about sending them a great deal of money and goods he purchased using the illicit funds. This is the evidence Garrus would need. I should take it to him.

After giving the evidence to Garrus:

I have given the evidence to Garrus he needs to remove Ulrich from office. He said he would take it directly to the Count of Cheydinhal. He told me to meet him at the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn in two hours.

After two hours pass:

It's been about two hours, and Garrus Darelliun should be meeting me at the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn.

After speaking with Garrus at the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn:

Garrus has informed me that he was made Captain of the Guard of Cheydinhal to replace Ulrich, and has rewarded me for helping him.

Method TwoEdit

If you decide to do it Llevana's way and speak to Ulrich to "Follow Me":

I have convinced Ulrich to follow me to Llevana's house. I should lead him there now.

After arriving at Llevana's house:

I have arrived at Llevana's house with Ulrich. I should see where he goes.

After Ulrich is killed by the rats:

Garrus was upset that I would resort to such a method to have Ulrich removed from his position, but he was glad it was over. He said he would report this to the Count of Cheydinhal, and told me to meet him at the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn in two hours.

After two hours pass:

It's been about two hours, and Garrus Darelliun should be meeting me at the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn.

After speaking with Garrus at the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn:

Garrus has informed me that he was made Captain of the Guard of Cheydinhal to replace Ulrich, and has rewarded me for helping him.
