|Quests||Find Rjorn's Drum|
Halldir's Cairn is a cave and the final resting place of the famous drummer Halldir. It is found southwest of Falkreath. The border between Skyrim and Hammerfell lies very close to the cave and can be found if walking the road south west.
Just inside the entrance of the cave is a column of blue light and three dead bodies around it—they are Agrius, Raen and Vidgrod. On a pedestal near the column is Agrius's Journal, detailing a ghostly voice that compelled the bandits to kill themselves on a blood-soaked rock cairn.
Runil asks to find his journal, which may be here as a possible location for Runil's Journal.
A lever behind the throne must be pulled to open the door in Halldir's Cairn.
Feran Sadri tasks the Dragonborn with finding the ancient remains of an elder vampire. The Cairn is one of the possible locations for the body parts. It is inside the chest in the final room, where Halldir is found.

Feran Sadri sends the Dragonborn here as a possible location to find an Amulet of Night Power, which has fallen into the hands of a less-favorable owner.

- Dragon Priest that spawns instead of Halldir does not complete the quest. As this dungeon can be entered several times for different quests, sometimes the object of the venture cannot be obtained, and the quest cannot be finished. For example, if Rjorn's Drum is picked up the first time in the cairn without having activated that quest, the quest to find it can not be completed. Or, if entered after the first time to kill the leader, (Companion's repeatable quest), killing the

- As you kill each of the copies, you may sometimes loot his body before all the energies flow away. This allows the Dragonborn to loot him a total of four times.
