Radiant Quests are quests that randomly select the goal or target location (see Radiant A.I.). Some can be repeated infinitely, granting the rewards each time you complete them, while sending you to a different location such that a new Radiant Quest is not likely to be a duplicate of the previous one you have accepted (though it is still possible with the limited number of available locations and objectives).


Radiant Quests are available throughout, between and after completion of most quest lines. Some quests of this nature do not appear in your quest list and therefore may not have a map marker telling you where to go.

If the Dragonborn add-on is installed, the number of possible locations for Radiant Quests includes Solstheim. If you start a Radiant Quest in Skyrim that appears in your quest log but there is no map marker, your objective may possibly be in Solstheim and vice versa.
