Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Mule RunEdit

Speak to the quest giver, who says:

"(Player's first name), I got a job for you if you're interested. A little package needs delivering to (first town). What do you say?"


The quest giver goes on:

"Great. Here's the package, some (drugs). It needs to be in (first town) as soon as possible. (First contact's name) will meet you there in (first building). Be careful. If word of this shipment leaks out, we may have a bit of trouble with some freelance smugglers who think they own the business in (region).


The quest giver answers:

"Don't do me any favors, pal."

Making the DropEdit

Travel to the town where your contact waits. There are two possible scenarios:

  1. If you manage to make it to the meeting place within one to about three days, your contact will take the drugs from you and give you the promised reward.
  2. If you can't reach the meeting place within this period of time, your contact will leave. You will then be approached:
A small, dirty boy tugs on your sleeve. He hands you a scrap of paper then dashes off down an alley.

Read the letter:

(Player's name)
Sorry I couldn't meet you in (first town)
as planned. The heat got too intense for me
to wait around. I've arranged an alternate
drop in (second town). Look for a (second contact's description)
waiting for you in (second building).
Watch your back,
(First contact's name)

Travel to the town mentioned in the letter. Along the way, you may encounter a rival group of smugglers who will attack you on sight. When hit, the first of these will say:

"When are you Thieves Guild thugs going to learn that we control the (drugs) business around (region)?"

Deal with them and learn the location of your new contact by asking around in town. Find and speak to the contact to hand over the drugs and collect your reward.


When you give the drugs to either of the two contacts, they will say:

"I'm glad you made it through. These amateurs don't stand a chance against our organization. Here's (random gold) gold for your services. Good work."

If you failed the quest, the quest giver will greet you with:

  • "So, the smuggler who can't deliver the goods returns. What do you want?"
