"Goblins. They're gonna kill us all!"

Gugnir is a Nord found injured southeast of the Dogeater Goblin Camp. Him, his brothers and five other guards went there to try to cull the goblins but all except for him were killed.


Tarnish the Crown

Help Gugnir to stop the goblins from attacking Port Hunding. Kill King Demog and take his crown.


Tarnish the Crown

Gugnir can be first met calling for help near the road to the Dogeater Goblin Camp. He initiates the quest "Tarnish the Crown."

"Goblins. They're gonna kill us all!"

What happened? "They killed everyone―my brothers and our five guards. They spared me good, left me for dead. I crawled here after they left. Threir new king's got them all riled up, ready to attack Port Hunding and wipe out the town!"
What can I do about it? "Kill the king! They won't attack the town without him to lead them. Bring me his crown so I know the bastard's dead. I'll try to make it to town."
I'll do it. "I just need to gather my strength and hobble back to town. Get that Goblin king and bring me his crown, if you can!"
How'd you run into the Goblins? "We actually went looking for them, if you can believe that. We'd heard they had a new king and that he was stirring up trouble. We figured we could handle them, but there were too many for us."
Why don't we just warn the town? "No good. Bhosek'll never believe me. He's a suspicious bastard and will think we're trying to trick him somehow. He'd have our heads on pikes. I'm too fond of my head to risk it."
What'll you do if I go after the king? "I'll try to make it to town. I'm too injured to be any good to you, and if the Goblins catch me out here, I'm dead."

After Goblin King Demog has been slain, Gugnir can be found near the Screaming Mermaid, near the well.

"Did you do it? Did you kill the Goblin king?"

Yes. Here's the crown. "By Kyne, you did it! I've been expecting them to attack the town any minute. Bhosek tossed me out when I tried to warn him, said he'd have my head if I didn't shut up. He'll never know you saved his town for him."

Gugnir can be spoken to after handing in the quest.

"If it's not Goblins, it'll be something else tomorrow. I swear this town is cursed."

Why aren't you in the tavern? "They kicked me out. They heard Bhosek threatened me and they don't want to risk his Fists storming in to arrest me."
