Letter of Inheritance is a book available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

BackgroundEdit

The letter is sent after the death of a follower, spouse, or other individual the Dragonborn has befriended. The letter may be sent even if the Dragonborn kills the individual.

ContentEdit

<Character's name>, In the name of <Jarl's name>, it is with great regret that we inform you of <NPC's name>'s death.

The deceased has bequeathed unto you a measure of inheritance in the amount of <number> gold pieces.

The Jarl's court has levied an amount of <number> gold pieces from the sum, as the lawfully and honorably due tax. The remainder has been commended unto the care of a trusted courier for deliverance.

While all of the Jarl's court grieves with you on this day, we rejoice in the knowledge that the deceased was in possession of dear friends and wealth to communicate unto them.

May this lawfully bestowed inheritance prove as a reminder of your enduring faith in one another, and of the Jarl's beneficence accorded unto you both.

TriviaEdit

  • Some characters, from whom the Dragonborn can receive inheritance upon their deaths, can die from what seems to be unknown reasons; however, in some cases there are circumstances that allow the character's death when the player gets close enough to the character's location and hostiles spawn nearby even if the player isn't necessarily at the character's exact location. ( e.g. while on the road, or anywhere near Kolskeggr Mine, the Forsworn, despite having been previously cleared from the area, will respawn and can kill Pavo Attius and/or Gat gro-Shargakh who returned to the mine after the Dragonborn cleared it of hostiles.)

BugsEdit

This section contains bugs related to Letter of Inheritance. 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  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  •  PC   PS3   Sometimes, the letter will say nothing but "In the name of Jarl."
  • Occasionally, the letter says [...] in place of the Jarl's or spouse's name as well as the amount of gold inherited.
  • Sometimes a letter will be received about a character that can't die, and they will later be found alive.
  •  360   It is possible, if more than one Letter of Inheritance is held, for the letters to "stack". If this happens, the content of the letters will change to match that of the first Letter of Inheritance received.
    • This may be caused by the quest, "The Mind of Madness", which removes the Dragonborn's inventory temporarily.

    • The imprisoned jarls are still unkillable. I took a swing at Balgruff after he came out with a sarky comment, and the whole lot started fight...
    • Yeah you might want to try to sheath your weapon or GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE!

    • wow, you guys really get annoyed by the couriers. For me something funny happened during the quest to capture odaviihng, a courier went to me...
    • I absolutely hate it when other NPCs are fighting the same enemy as me, and it's impossible to get a hit in without hitting one of them ...
