Quick walkthroughEdit

Detailed walkthroughEdit

No News Is Good News is initiated by Angeline Morrard in Solitude. She asks if the Dragonborn been to Whiterun and if they have met her daughter, Fura, who is stationed there as an Imperial soldier.

The Dragonborn is then sent to question Captain Aldis for information on her. Aldis will insist that information on soldiers is "need to know" and the Dragonborn will be given the standard persuade, bribe, and Intimidate options.

If the Dragonborn has completed the Reunification of Skyrim quest line, an additional option to simply order Aldis to divulge the information will be available. Upon successfully questioning Aldis, it will be revealed that Angeline's daughter was killed while stationed near Whiterun. The Dragonborn will then return to tell Angeline the news, to which she will say that she cannot thank them for delivering the news, but that she is grateful to know what happened.
