Known LocationsEdit

  • Upon completion of Dragon Rising, a courier can randomly appear and deliver the letter to the Dragonborn after using a Dragon Shout in any named area. It will point to the location of a Word Wall, which is determined by when and where the Dragonborn receives the letter.


<Name of Player>,

You caused a bit of stir in <Location> when you demonstrated the power of your Thu'um. Not everyone is anxious for the return of the Dragonborn.

I for one desire to see you grow and develop your talents. Skyrim needs a true hero these days.

You should turn your attention to <Location>. I understand it holds a mysterious source of power that can only be unlocked by the Dragonborn.


A Friend


  • A Letter from a Friend may be received after collecting 7 of the Dragon Priest masks stating that a stir had been created in Labyrinthian, even if no shout had been used.


This section contains bugs related to Letter from a Friend. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Confirm all bugs with other editors on the talk page before adding them below.
  2. Always try reloading an old save first, before asking for assistance.
  3. Do not discuss possible bug fixes or origins. Leave those and all other first-person-anecdotes on the talk page, not the article.
  4. Always add  360  ,  PS3  , or  PC   to clarify which system the bug appears on.
  • Both locations in the letter can match one another even if the word wall there has already been acquired.
  • The location where you are said to have "demonstrated your Thu'um" will sometimes be a place where no one could have witnessed it, let alone have been "stirred" (ex., during The Throat of the World or in Apocrypha).
  • In some cases, the text may disappear, rendering the letter useless.
  • Sometimes, the letter will start by saying "You caused a bit of stir in when you demonstrated the power of your Thu'um", leaving out the location where you demonstrated the power of your Thu'um
  • The shout may be inaccessible. It is possible that the word is learned already or that the game has bugged out.
