Wars of the Black Alliance
Sigurd Ironhammer, Thane to the Earl of Blackreach
Sigurd Ironhammer is in the employ of the Earl of Blackreach.
Baron Theodemir, the lord of the land, to whom the Earl of Blackreach is subordinate, have tasked Sigurd with a secret quest (don’t worry, I’ll spoil it now) to reclaim the lost Amulet of Undying. To this end Sigurd has been hiring groups of adventurers to travel to Black Harbour, but none have been successful so far.
