After returning from the Battle for Whiterun and claiming victory in the name of the Stormcloaks, Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak is pleased that he now controls Whiterun, the center of the province of Skyrim, a position he aims to keep.

Elated at the achievement of his newest victory, he presents the Dragonborn with a random enchanted weapon. With the full support of the rebellion, the Dragonborn is now free to openly engage the Imperials and is commanded to meet Galmar Stone-Fist at the Stormcloaks' hidden camp in Falkreath for the first of many orders.

The quest is actually an overarching quest encompassing a number of subquests in order to take over Imperial-controlled towns, forts and ultimately entire Holds in the name of the Stormcloaks, thus solidifying Ulfric's rule and the freedom of Skyrim.

Objective quests

  1. Liberate Falkreath Hold
  2. Liberate The Reach
  3. Liberate Hjaalmarch
  4. Liberate The Pale / The Rift / Winterhold (Depending on the choices made during Season Unending)
  5. Liberate Haafingar
  6. Capture Solitude

Note: Depending on the choices made during Season Unending, these quests may also take place:
