In my run through, I told him everyone was spying on him (150 gold the first time, 200 the 2nd time, I forget afterwards.) I told him I wouldn't kill them and he didn't attack me. I then killed him (behind the church) and took all his stuff. For some reason the guards arrested me for stealing a small amount, but I still had his key. And this is where it got interesting. I went to his house to loot it, there are a bunch of valuable books and stuff. However, right in an inconspicuous looking basket immediately to the right when you walk in, there was 800 gold! Maybe if you murder people he gives it to you instead, but this is still a very profitable side quest if you intend to loot his home. -- In my version, I turned Glarthir in to one of the guards. When I went back to rummage through his house, Glarthir's dead body was immediately inside the front door. I stepped over it and resumed collecting goodies. :-)
whatever i just told him i didnt want to be involved
- Glarthir will give you money for each person, and a little bonus if you tell him that they're spying on you. On top of that, you can get a 1000 gold pieces from him for killing everyone you said spied on him, even if you only said that one person was. Left on his own, Glarthir will generally die after killing the first lady, and if you thin out the guards for him, he might be able to take the second. If you actively run interference, he can take all three out.

If you have a high enough sneak skill you can just pickpocket his keys from him and rob his house (including the 800 gold in the basket) without ever doing this quest. --22.214.171.124 20:54, May 25, 2010 (UTC)
