WalkthroughEdit

Dengeir of Stuhn explains to the Dragonborn that a nearby grave has been dug up and it is thought to be the work of gravediggers. He states that it was his ancestor, Vighar, who has been freed from his coffin in Falkreath. Dengeir requests assistance from the Dragonborn to kill Vighar before his condition is revealed, otherwise it will damage his family's reputation throughout Skyrim.

"Stendarr protect Falkreath until Skyrim's Sons rise."
What exactly do you need from me? "You may have seen the open grave in our graveyard. Most of the townsfolk think it's the work of a corpse thief. The truth is less pleasant. It is... was, the grave of Vighar, my own ancestor, dead for centuries now. He is also a vampire. My family is entrusted with keeping him buried, but recently someone stole the wardstone, and Vighar escaped."
And you want me to find the wardstone? "No. It's too late for the wardstone. Vighar must be destroyed. If this gets out, my family will suffer great shame."
I will see that Vighar is destroyed. "Good. He will have fled to gather others of his kind."
A vampire? I don't think so. "I expected too much. I'll seek someone else to salvage the family honor."
What did you want my help with? "Destroy Vighar, my long dead vampire ancestor. Have you changed your mind?"

Bloodlet Throne, where the Dragonborn needs to go in order to find Vighar, is southeast of Falkreath. In addition to fighting Vighar, who is a master vampire, there are other enemies the Dragonborn must fight, they include: different types of Vampires, Vampire Thralls, and wolves. Before entering Bloodlet Throne at lower levels, it is necessary for the Dragonborn to have health potions or a healing spell, along with cure disease potions.

Vighar is dead. "My family thanks you. Take this as a token of our gratitude."

The Dragonborn will receive 600 GoldIcon from Dengeir when they have cleared the fort Bloodlet Throne and its master Vighar tending it.
