Background[edit | edit source]

"I have picked up my next contract from the dead drop in the hollowed-out tree stump. I have been ordered to go to the campsite on Gnoll Mountain and kill Havilstein Hoar-Blood, a savage Nord Barbarian skilled in the use of the axe."
Hero of Kvatch[src]

The Coldest Sleep[edit | edit source]

The sixth dead drop order sends the Hero to Havilstein, the next target, located at a camp on Gnoll Mountain, in the Jerall Mountain, southeast of Bruma. When the Hero arrives there, Havilstein and his wolf will attack on sight.

The dead drop claims Havilstein is a Nord barbarian who savagely butchered the chieftain of a mead hall on the island of Solstheim. The chieftain's sister has contacted the Dark Brotherhood to exact revenge. After progressing in the Dark Brotherhood questline, the Hero will find out that Havilstein was in fact a high-ranking member of the Dark Brotherhood.
