Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Fjol the OutlawEdit

If you have a high enough disposition with Larrius Varro (30), ask him about latest rumors, and he will reveal that a Nord has been attacking careless travelers near Hla Oad.

Confronting the Road AgentEdit

Head over to the town and find Fjol near the bridge north of town. Speak to him about murderous outlaws and he will demand that you give him 100 gold, basically confirming that indeed he is (if your disposition is higher than 40, he'll ask more politely). If you give him the gold you can return to Varro and report Fjol's position, but you will not receive any reward. If you refuse to give Fjol the 100 gold, he will attack and you will be forced to kill him. Be careful when choosing this option, however, as he can easily one-shot low-level players. If you encounter him early on (which most players will) it might be wise to avoid talking to him altogether until you have gained a few levels and can safely return to kill him. Note that you don't have to talk to him at all in order to progress the quest and can instead attack him at will, making things easier for ranged characters/spellcasters. Once he's dead, return to Varro for a 100 gold reward.


  • Unlike other quests in which you can kill off somebody, and then later go to the quest-giver, get the quest, then talk to them again and —voilà!— you've already done it and it counts, for this quest you must talk to Larrius about "careless travelers" first. If you kill Fjol before talking to Larrius, he won't give you the quest but it will still be listed as an active quest in your journal.
  • If you have already killed Fjol before talking to Larrius, you can still get the reward by adding the topic to his conversation via AddTopic "careless travelers".


  • The script that runs when you agree to hand over 100 gold to Fjol doesn't check to see whether or not you actually have the gold. Drop all your gold before talking to him about "murderous outlaws" and then kill him. He will have an extra 100 gold in addition to the 15 gold he usually carries.

105 I paid Fjol the 100 gold.
