Reward 100-300 GoldIcon
Faction The Companions
Type Companions, Radiant quest
Quest ID CR05
Trouble in Skyrim is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Talk to Farkas to get this quest. This is one of three possible repeatable quests Farkas will offer the Dragonborn after reaching a certain point in the Companions quest line.

The quest seems to be completely randomized each time, since its part of the radiant system present in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. However, if this is the first random quest taken in the Companions, it is most likely to be in Shimmermist Cave. Examples are listed below.

Possible objectivesEdit

If Playing with the add-on Dawnguard You may need to kill the bandit leader in Dimhollow Crypt. You will need to complete the first mission of Dawnguard (Awakening) to gain access to the cave.

Return to Farkas once the mission is complete for a reward of 100-300 GoldIcon.
