The Forsworn Conspiracy - Skyrim Wiki
It's very hard to find, and the shrine doesn't have its own world marker, but it's there, east of Whiterun under a ledge: Image of shrine. Shrine. has rippled throughout the city. A mysterious note that a witness says you dropped will be given to you, asking to meet at the Shrine of Talos. Given to the Dragonborn by Eltrys outside the Silver-Blood Inn after witnessing the murder / attempted murder of Margret when entering the Markarth market for the first time. All trademarks and registered trademarks present in the image are proprietary to Bethesda Softworks, the.
Upon entering the Shrine of Talos, you will find Eltrys dead, but the guards will not arrest you for the murder. If you choose to go to jail, you will not be able to gain entrance to the King in Rags' cell to continue the quest. It appears that by handing over Markarth during the negotiations, this quest will automatically end.
It is possible to complete this quest without starting No One Escapes Cidhna Mine by stealthily killing the middle guard in the Shrine of Talos when you return there for your final report to Eltrys before you are seen.
If you do this, however, you will never be able to start the next quest. If you have completed the quest Silver Liningyou will have the dialogue option to tell the guards you want to clear your bounty for half the cost.

However, the guard will tell you he doesn't care who you're with, and your only option will be jail time in Cidhna Mine. If Nana Ildene and Donnel die before you talk to Thonar, Betrid will die without anyone being there to kill her.
She will not die if you never talk to Thonar. If you previously pickpocketed Thonar's journal, the quest will jump ahead and you'll find Eltrys dead with three angry guards at the shrine. It is impossible to get your reward after you meet with Nepos or Thonar. Eltrys will be killed after either one of the stage. After you meet both Nepos and Thonar, you will be unable to loot Eltrys's body because it will disappear immediately when you enter the Shrine of Talos and start No One Escapes Cidhna Mine.
Eltrys's dead body can be un-vanished and looted using the console with prid and enable. It is possible to loot Eltrys's body as an Imperial character by initially refusing to surrender to the guards, looting his corpse, then using the Voice of the Emperor power to calm the guards, and surrendering to them. Bugs[ edit ] If you are having trouble starting the next quest No One Escapes Cidhna Mine after this quest is completed and submit to go to jail, with no reason, even if you complete this quest before starting either side of the civil war questline, try this solution.
Proceed this quest as normal, and when you are at the end of the quest and you are in the Shrine of Talos' you'll see Markarth guards waiting for you.
One of the guards will initiate dialogue with you. You've got three options: Without closing the dialogue menu, open the console menu and type setstage ms02 The next quest will then start with no problem.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim #120 - The Forsworn Conspiracy (Markarth City Quest)
Another possible solution is to drop or store as many items as possible from your carried inventory. The game may crash or freeze as it tries to save your carried items so that they can be returned at the end of the next quest, so reducing the number of items to be saved will avoid the freeze.
If you kill the Markarth guard that warns you once you find evidence about Margret, the center guardsmen will not be at the Shrine of Talos, making it impossible to complete the quest. However, if the city's allegiance Imperial or Stormcloaks changes during this part of the quest, it will be completed and the guards will vanish from the game, making it impossible to start No One Escapes From Cidhna Mine.
If you enter Markarth for the first time while completing the A Night to Remember quest and it is nighttime, the incident in the marketplace which initiates this quest will not have happened.
This can lead to a few other bugs: Entering these console commands will cause Weylin to attack her: From there, the quest should proceed as normal.

If you then proceed to pickpocket Thonar's journal before entering the Shrine of Talos, you will find Eltrys's dead body and three guards who will arrest you for his murder as well as the other murders around the city even though no one else has diedthus completing a quest which never started. This also prevents the deaths of Margret, Betrid, Nana, and Donnel. If the incident in the marketplace does not occur, Vigilant Tyranus will not spawn in Markarth, preventing you from starting the House of Horrors quest.
If you become a Thane of the Reach before starting or completing this quest, you will not be arrested when you return to the Shrine of Talos, making you unable to complete the quest. Even if you murder a guard and submit to arrest, you still will not be able to complete the quest. This bug is fixed by version 1.
Followers may get permanently stuck in the Shrine of Talos, regardless of whether or not the quest is completed and you escaped from Cidhna Mine. If this happens, the follower will not leave even after you tell them to go home, and if they are moved elsewhere via console, they will walk back to the Shrine of Talos, no matter where in Skyrim they are.
The easiest way to prevent this bug from triggering is to order your follower s to wait outside the Shrine of Talos or to dismiss them immediately before entering to be arrested. If the Markarth guards do not warn you off after having investigated the inn for Eltrys and you get stuck guards won't arrest you when returning to him after finding out all you can about the conspiracy, if you wander the streets and do meet the guard who warns you off and then return to the temple, the guards will still arrest you or attempt to do so.
Because the three guards who ambush you in the Shrine of Talos are chosen randomly from the guards in Markarth, it is possible that the commander in the keep, either Legate Emmanuel Admand or Kottir Red-Shoalmay be among them.
If they are, neither of them will give dialogue options that allow the completion of the quest, instead preferring to talk about the war. The other guards will not initiate dialogue. This will leave the quest stuck at this stage, since you cannot be framed and sent to prison for Eltrys' murder.
A shiv is a very short weapon that every prisoner has… well not anymore, and I equip one in each hand and head down the tunnels to find Madanach. Looking in his pocket I find a note. Basically it was for his fellow prisoners. If ever he should die, there was a key to a cell nearby in which was an escape tunnel that led into the dwemer ruins, and from there into the city.
I take the note and the key and skedaddle.
When I step outside, Thonar Silver-Blood is there. He had contacts within the mine, and they informed him that Madanach is dead.

It basically ends the Forsworn attacks in the city and the Jarl has been informed, which resulted in my being pardoned. Then he goes on to say that he has to get new workers for the mines now. All the other prisoners are still alive down there… unless they got into a free-for-all war trying to find out who took the skooma. I keep that to myself… plus all that silver ore I dug up. I put my armor back on, re-equip my weapon, and then I go smelt the ore into bars and go make some jewelry.
The Falmer language… Calcelmo. I head into Understone Keep. First I manage to chat up a storm with Calcelmo, and I get a free key into the museum, although he refuses to let me see his new book before he publishes it. Ah well… I head to the museum, and a guard stops me.
Calcelmo gave it to me himself! It MUST happen to the older elves at some point! I sigh and go kill a spider. That is one big spider… probably ate Miracle Gro by mistake! When I get back, he tells me that I did a great job… yeah yeah I know… You gave me gold, splendid!
All you really had to do was scratch my ears. I take the key…I wonder how many of these things he really has… I also wonder if I could have just picked his pocket and killed the guard… I shrug my shoulders and finally go into the museum. Inside I slip past the guards and get into the back part of the place which has mercenary-like guards inside, not just city guards.
I ignore him and press on. Nope, nobody here, just keep going so I can sneak out! Talking to all the citizens and guards, waiting for 24 hours, etc. If you are online, be prepared to become a hypocrite!
DuneMan DuneMan 2 years ago 2 Markarth can be funny that way. If you meet with him normally there should be a Guard ambush waiting for you with special dialog and you should choose the option that surrenders. It reminds me of the time I angered the Dibellan Priestesses during their chat because I had an Invisibility spell equipped. Sure, I cast Harmony on them and played with their dialogs to progress the quest normally, but then every Reach Guard would run up to me for my 2, Gold Bounty only to be Persuaded to look the other way.
Bounty Hunters joined in, and finally a Frost Dragon was waiting outside the city and when I absorbed its soul one of the Guards I had already Persuaded reset and approached me again.
So I payed my bounty, then stole all my Stolen goods again from the Evidence Chest and left the city normally for Karthwasten to progress the quest.
