Contents[edit | edit source]
Contract 1[edit | edit source]
Here is the agreed upon amount. I expect you to faithfully carry out my request to teach a lesson to the thief <Player>. You need not kill her/him, but I have no qualms about it if you deem it necessary.
Contract 2[edit | edit source]
Here's the sum we agreed upon. I trust that you will make <Player> pay for killing my dear <NPC>. Return to me with proof of the deed.
If you run afoul of the law, I will pay your bounty.
Possible employers[edit | edit source]
The character is dependent on the theft or murder victim. These characters are confirmed to give this note, sometimes even after being killed. The children Lars Battle-Born, Skuli, and Dorthe are also capable of issuing this contract, as is Paarthurnax.
Excluded characters[edit | edit source]
These characters will never give this note, according the Creation Kit:

Bugs[edit | edit source]
This section contains bugs related to Contract (Book). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- If Anise puts up a contract against the Dragonborn, her hired thugs can kill her if they spawn at her shack.
- Occasionally the theft contract will not have an NPC name attributed to it. Instead it will read, "--[..]" at the bottom where the name should be.
- Sometimes, when reading a contract put against the Dragonborn after a number of days, the contract will only contain a couple of words. This bug also occurs for notes but not potion recipes.
