This is a radiant quest that will take you to a random camp to retrieve one of the Fragments of Wuuthrad that has been acquired by the Silver Hand. You will need to fight your way through to the destination's boss chest, where you will find the fragment.
This quest is no longer available once Wuuthrad is reforged during Glory of the Dead, meaning you will at most be able to complete this quest a few times. It is also possible to never receive this quest making 100% completition of the Companions quests impossible.
- Accepting this quest while other Companions quests are active may leave you unable to complete it.
- You may receive this quest from Aela despite completing Glory of the Dead. This may be caused after the events of The Silver Hand, accepting Aela's first quest, and accepting one of the other companion's quests. By the time you complete the Companions' quest line, Aela may have the second mission queued.
- After returning and reporting to Aela, your quest will be acknowledged as complete in the journal, but it may remain in your active quest list. If this happens, Aela will not give you any further Silver Hand radiant quest to do (but will still give Skyrim:Animal Extermination quests). This bug can occurr with any Silver Hand radiant quest.
