After receiving the quest, exit the castle and head towards the boat to spawn back into the main world. The Dragonborn should then head to the radiant location.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If Redwater Den has been cleared previously in the quest "The Bloodstone Chalice," the key acquired from the dealer, and the secret entrance behind the dealer's counter accessed, the secret entrance can be utilized to avoid going through the full dungeon again. The key is also an asset if the lock cannot be picked.
