The Ghost of Old Hroldan[edit | edit source]

Eydis offers to let the Dragonborn sleep in the very bed that Tiber Septim supposedly stayed in. After sleeping a night in that bed, the Dragonborn will be awakened by Eydis' screaming, as a ghost has appeared and is wandering about the inn. She believes he is the ghost that is said to haunt Old Hroldan, and points out the possible locations to find the sword the ghost requests.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

"You'll be looking to rent Tiber Septim's room I take it?"

Tiber Septim's room? "That's right. In the Second Era, Tiber Septim himself led the army that conquered Old Hroldan from the barbarians of the Reach. Septim would later found the Empire that united Tamriel, but his first known battle and victory was right here. And this inn has the very bed the great general slept in on his first night as Old Hroldan's liberator. As good as it was hundreds of years ago."
I'll rent Tiber Septim's room. (10 gold) "Have a good rest. It's the big room with the double bed."

"See you."

Show: The Ghost of Old Hroldan
In the Old Hroldan Inn:

"You'll be looking to rent Tiber Septim's room I take it?"

I'll rent Tiber Septim's room. (10 gold) "Have a good rest. It's the big room with the double bed."

"See you."

After sleeping in Tiber Septim's bed:

"Mara have mercy that gave me a fright."

I heard screaming. "There's a... ghost. Just wandering around my inn like it owned the place."
You said you saw a ghost? "Yes. I've heard stories that Old Hroldan was haunted, but no ones seen a ghost here since the Great War. He's from the battle, I just know it. He's one of Tiber Septim's soldiers... back from the dead."

"All right, then."

After speaking to the ghost:

"Do you think the ghost is one of... Tiber Septim's dead men?"

The ghost is looking for his sword. "A sword? I remember a legend that Tiber Septim had attacked one of the enemy camps before he came to Old Hroldan. It could be there. I'll mark it down on your map."
The ghost mentioned a "Hjalti." "Hjalti? I've never heard of anyone named Hjalti. Tiber Septim had many names. Maybe that's one of them?"

"See you."

  • Sitting on one of the benches or in a chair will cause her to yell at her son, "Look alive, will you!" where he will reply "Yes mama!" and run over to the player and initiate dialogue for bartering.
