Welcome to the Bards College. I am the headmaster here. How may I help you?— Viarmo
I'm looking to apply to the college.— Dragonborn
Always a pleasure to meet a prospective bard.
You should be aware that many apply but we accept very few people.
When possible, we ask applicants to perform tasks the college needs completed. In this case, I do have a task befitting an aspiring bard...— Viarmo
What do you need me to do?— Dragonborn
Elisif has forbidden the Burning of King Olaf, a Festival put on by the Bards College. We need to change her mind.
To convince her I want to read King Olaf's Verse. A part of the Poetic Edda, the living history of Skyrim. Unfortunately the verse was lost long ago.— Viarmo
And that's where I come in?— Dragonborn
Yes. According to Giraud, our histories keeper, the portion of the Edda dealing with King Olaf might still exist in Dead Man's Respite.
I need you to retrieve the poem.— Viarmo
