Reunification of Skyrim is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is a large quest with several sub-quests and is a major part of the Civil War, provided that the Dragonborn sided with the Imperials at the Battle for Whiterun.


"I will help General Tullius quell the Stormcloak rebellion and reunite Skyrim by restoring Imperial control."
―Legate Rikke[src]

This quest begins once the Battle for Whiterun has been completed for the Imperials.



Report to General Tullius in Solitude for a promotion and a reward for taking Whiterun. He will direct the Dragonborn to Legate Rikke to receive the next objective in taking Skyrim back from the Stormcloaks. After speaking with him, report to Legate Rikke at an Imperial camp. She will give objectives for each hold that must be taken, after which the Dragonborn must report back to Tullius, then return to Rikke at a new camp for the next objective. The first of these is A False Front.

Regain Winterhold HoldEdit

  •  PS3   360   Legate Rikke will not give the quest "Rescue From Fort Kastav".
    •  PS3(Fix)   360(Fix)   Patch 1.6-Go to the nearby cooking spit and activate it, this should trigger the "Reporting for Duty" dialog option to appear.Works for PS3 and Xbox 360 but NOT on PC.
    •  360(Fix)   PS3(Fix)   Reloading a previous save or saving and loading may also fix this problem.
    •  PS3(Fix)   If Markarth is given to Ulfric Stormcloak during "Season Unending," clearing Fort Sungard from the Stormcloak army and then fast traveling to Rikke's camp will give the "Reporting for duty" dialogue. Going through the rest of her dialogue options might be necessary as well.

Regain EastmarchEdit

  •  PS3   360   Legate Rikke may not give the "reporting for duty" option.
    •  PS3(Fix)   Attacking Legate Rikke fixes the problem.
    •  PS3(Fix)   Sometimes if you are fast-traveling directly to the camp the option will not appear. In those cases, fast-travel to a location near the camp and walk from there.
    •  360(Fix)   Using the cooking spit may also fix the issue.
    •  360(Fix)   Exiting the conversation with Legate Rikke and then re-initiating is another possible solution.

Regain the RiftEdit

  • When talking to Legate Rikke the "Reporting for Duty" dialog may not appear.
  • This can be fixed by going to Fort Greenwall and killing a few Stormcloaks. The Quest will start and the option "Reporting for duty" will reapear.

Regain the ReachEdit

  • If the Reach was given to the Stormcloaks during Season Unending, then it will be the Reach instead of the Rift. When talking to Legate Rikke, the "Reporting for Duty" dialog may not appear. This may be able to be fixed by using all three words of Unrelenting Force on Legate Rikke. 
  • During the quest to retake Fort Sungard, the Imperials and Stormcloaks may not appear, leaving the fort empty.

    • Apparently using the cooking pot in the camp can sometimes fix it or fast traveling away and back again.
