Talk to Sichfrith

Leave the house you wake up in and make your way to the quest marker on the west-side of Dublin. Speak to Sichfrith at this location to trigger a cutscene. Sichfrith will give you some information on Thorstein. After this interaction you will need to find a new character named Ama.

Find and Question Ama

The only clue you have to go on for finding this character is that she often drinks on the docks. The docks of Dublin are located just north of where you meet Sichfrith. Head to the docks and look for a group of soldiers standing together. Speak to Ama who is next to the ale barrel. Ama will challenge you to a drink off.

Once you have the key it is time to find Thorstein’s hideout. Thorstein is said to be located in Dubgaill Landing. Dubgaill Landing is in the northwest corner of Dublin. In the middle of this enemy location there is a building you can enter with a locked door. Open the locked door and go down the path into the cave system. At the end of the system you will find Thorstein and a few enemies. Take them all out then tie up Thorstein and carry him back to Barid at the longhouse.

What to Do with Thorstein

When you return Thorstein to Barid you will trigger an interaction. During this interaction you are able to decide what to do with Thorstein through a dialogue selection. There are three choices you can make for Thorstein:

  1. Dignified execution.
  2. Brutal death.
  3. Display of cruelty.

No matter what you select from the choices above Barid will overrule your decision. Barid decides to confiscate Thorstein’s land and silver and banish him. This decision is due to the Christian beliefs held by the king. After the decision is made you will complete the quest and will unlock Rathdown Build Up.
