Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Magic[edit | edit source]

Where can I learn more about magic? "Any aspiring mage would do well to look for the College in Winterhold. Head there, and you'll get what you're after. Although our Jarl's humble wizard might be willing to help you too."

The Forsworn Conspiracy[edit | edit source]

Did a woman named Margret stay here? "Ah, yes. Rented the nicest room we had for a whole month. I think she's sitting by the fire. Poor girl." (If Margret was killed: "Ah, yes. Rented the nicest room we had for a whole month. Best we all forget about her. Bad luck to talk about the dead in Markarth.")

Do you have the key to Margret's room? "Of course. But I can't just hand that over. Privacy, after all."

Conversations[edit | edit source]

Cosnach[edit | edit source]

Kleppr: "Another drink, Cosnach? A porter from Arnleif and Sons deserves nothing but the finest here."
Cosnach: "All your drinks are watered down, Kleppr. You aren't fooling me, and you know Lisbet can't afford to pay me enough for the finest drinks anyhow."
Kleppr: "I wasn't aware Lisbet was having trouble, Cosnach. Is Arnleif and Sons not having a good turn of business these days?"
Cosnach: "What are you, blind? That store is empty. The Forsworn get almost every shipment that comes in."
Kleppr: "That's just terrible. I'm so sorry to hear that."
Cosnach: "No you aren't."

Frabbi[edit | edit source]

Frabbi: "Kleppr, you idiot! Can't you do anything right?"
Kleppr: "What? What did I do this time? I was just standing here."
Frabbi: "You were just standing there when you were supposed to be serving drinks to our customers!"
Kleppr: "Shouldn't you be helping me then, wife of mine? Sharing my problems? Being my better half?"
Frabbi: "I am your better half. And your better half is telling you to stop being an idiot and serve the customers their drinks!"

Frabbi: "All the wood furniture in the inn is rotten to the core. Do you know why that is, Kleppr?"
Kleppr: "I don't know. I suppose you're going to tell me?"
Frabbi: "Its rotten because the wood is cheap and soaked with ale! Now we'll have to replace all the furniture before bugs set in."
Kleppr: "Don't worry, my love. Just show the bugs your adoring face, and they'll scurry away in complete fear in no time."
Frabbi: "You're an idiot, Kleppr. Why did I ever marry you?"
Kleppr: "Not a day goes by I don't ask myself that same question, my dear."

Kleppr: "Frabi, my dear loving wife, would you please clean out the guest rooms?"
Frabbi: "Clean the rooms yourself, Kleppr. Its not like you do anything important around here."
Kleppr: "No, just check in the guests and manage the coin and keep a roof over your head. No, nothing important."

Hreinn[edit | edit source]

Hreinn: "Father, why do you and mother fight so much?"
Kleppr: "We don't fight. We, um, talk. Loudly."

Kleppr: "How are your chores coming, my son?"
Hreinn: "Today, I've cleaned the linens, washed the floors and checked in on all the guests."
Kleppr: "Ah, my son, you'll be a fine innkeeper someday, like your father."
Hreinn: "But mother says you're a terrible innkeeper!"
Kleppr: "Never mind your mother, Hreinn. You listen to me and you'll be a great man one day."

Ogmund[edit | edit source]

Kleppr: "Playing tonight, Ogmund? Everyone here is anxious to hear ballads performed by the true Skald of the Reach."
Ogmund: "Son, I know thousands of the old ballads. If I played all of them, everyone in this inn would be as grey as I am before I finished."
Kleppr: "Uh, right. Maybe just one of the popular songs, like 'The Slaying of the Falmer Princes'?"
Ogmund: "That's a sensible lad. Now fetch me a drink."

Vorstag[edit | edit source]

Vorstag: "The Jarl is refusing to dispatch men to the front lines. Do you think it's because of the Forsworn threat?"
Kleppr: "Please. Those savages are no match for us. The Jarl is just biding his time."
Vorstag: "Biding his time for what? Until another person is lying dead in the streets? Don't be naive."

Killing Degaine does not cause it to fail. The only way to fix it is to start the "Agent of Dibella" quest.
