A Woman BetrayedEdit
While exploring the wilderness, you may come across Kjolver's Dwelling, just between Brodir Grove and the Cave of Hidden Music. Inside lives a woman named Kjolver, who has had enough of her husband Brandr's infidelity and is willing to take drastic measures. She wants her husband's mistress, Erna the Quiet, killed. If you accept Kjolver's offer to kill her, she'll ask you to bring Erna's ring back as proof of her death. Kjolver also tells you that Erna can probably be found in her house in the Skaal Village.
Go to her house to find out that she isn't home, but there's a note for her lover, Brandr, indicating she was taking a walk down by the river. She can be found on the Isild River, north of Lake Fjalding, near Graring's House. Unfortunately, Brandr has already seen the note and is with Erna on the river, so be careful when killing her, as he will become hostile and you will be forced to kill him as well.
Return with the ProofEdit
Once you have taken care of Erna (and probably Brandr as well), go back to Kjolver with the ring to receive your 1000 gold reward. Killing Brandr will not prevent you from completing the quest, as Kjolver, oblivious to the facts, quietly awaits his return.
- If you speak to Erna after killing Brandr, her Disposition will be set to 0 and she will refuse to speak to you further.
- If you speak to Brandr after killing Erna, his Fight will be set to 100 and he will become hostile.
- Even if you taunt or use Frenzy spells on Erna, Brandr will still become hostile.
- Using Calm or Paralyze spells on Brandr is a viable approach for dealing with him. Be warned that if the spell wears off after you kill Erna, and you are still nearby, he will become hostile and attack you.

|Index||Finishes Quest||Journal Entry|
|10||A woman named Kjolver wants me to kill her husband's mistress, Erna the Quiet. Apparently, Kjolver has had enough of her husband's infidelity and is willing to take drastic measures.|
|20||I refused Kjolver's request that I murder her husband's mistress, Erna the Quiet. I don't want a stranger's blood on my hands.|
|30||I've accepted Kjolver's offer to kill her husband's mistress, Erna the Quiet. Erna has a house in the Skaal Village, and I can probably find her there. Once the deed is done, I'm to bring Erna's ring back to Kjolver as proof and collect my payment.|
|40||Erna the Quiet wasn't at her house, but I found a note indicating she was taking a walk down by the river. The note was left for Brandr. I can only hope he hasn't already seen it. Eliminating Erna will be much easier without her lover's interference....|
|45||Brandr is dead. I was supposed to kill Erna the Quiet, but Brandr got in the way, so I had no choice but to dispatch him. I'd best not tell Kjolver about this.|
|50||Erna the Quiet is dead. I've fulfilled my part of the bargain with Kjolver. All that's left is to return Erna's ring to Kjolver as proof of the deed, and collect my payment.|
|100||Erna's ring has been delivered to Kjolver as proof of the execution, and I've been well compensated for my efforts.|
