  3. Take the letter to Lord Castellian
  4. Return to Helseth

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

In Castle Wayrest, speak to Helseth Hlaalu, who is sitting atop a table in the dining room. He will ask the Agent to serve as a courier. Accept, and return the following day to receive the message.

Proceed to the location of Lord Castellian and provide him with the letter:

"You wait while Lord Castellian reads the letter. His skin grows pale and his hands begin to shake."

Castellian will respond in shock, and say "I see. Please wait while I pen a response to Prince Helseth."

"It only takes him a minute to write the response, which he then hands you."

Bring this letter back to receive a reward from Helseth.

If the Helseth's letter is read before being given to Lord Castellian, he will send out troops to slay the Agent, stating:

"This letter has been opened. You exceed the bounds of a courier, Agent (Player name)."

Likewise, his agents will remark:

"Lord Castellian has ordered your death. He wanted me to tell you that you know too much."
