Known locationsEdit

Received from the corpse of Hired Thug after being attacked by them.


Contract 1Edit

Here is the agreed upon amount. I expect you to faithfully carry out my request to teach a lesson to the thief <Player>. You need not kill her/him, but I have no qualms about it if you deem it necessary.

--(NPC Name)

Contract 2Edit

Here's the sum we agreed upon. I trust that you will make <Player> pay for killing my dear <NPC>. Return to me with proof of the deed.

If you run afoul of the law, I will pay your bounty.

--<NPC Name>

Possible employersEdit

The NPC is dependent on the theft or murder victim. These NPCs are confirmed to give this note, sometimes even after being killed. The children Lars Battle-Born, Skuli, and Dorthe are also capable of issuing this contract, and Paarthurnax, whether it is a glitch or a joke on the developers part is left up to the Dragonborn.

This section contains bugs related to Contract (Book). Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • If Anise puts up a contract against the Dragonborn, her hired thugs can kill her if they spawn at her shack.
  • Occasionally the theft contract will not have an NPC name attributed to it. Instead it will read, "--[..]" at the bottom where the name should be.
  • Sometimes, when reading a contract put against the Dragonborn after a number of days, the contract will only contain a couple of words. This bug also occurs for notes but not potion recipes.
