The encountering of the corpse is random, and may be found at other random encounter locations. During the encounter, two bandits will attack the Dragonborn. One of these should have an enchanted necklace as loot, and is presumed to be the pendant spoken of in the note. The Breton woman's corpse is usually near the area where the bandits were hiding.


If you are reading this, then I am most likely dead. A group of bandits ransacked my home and took most everything valuable I own. The worst is they took a pendant that has been in my family for many generations. Most of my family is dead, so that pendant was the last connection I had with any of them. I am going after those scoundrels and getting my pendant back, even if it is the death of me.
