Find the Stormcloak courier

Legate Rikke tells the Dragonborn that the Imperial Legion needs to deliver some forged orders to Frorkmar Banner-Torn in Dawnstar. In order to do this, the Stormcloak Documents need to be intercepted so they can be forged. She then says that the Stormcloak courier should be either at the Nightgate Inn or Candlehearth Hall

Retrieve the Stormcloak courier's package

It can take a few attempts before the courier is located. Speaking to the innkeeper in either town will provide some clues as to his location at the time.

Bring the documents to Legate Rikke

To retrieve the package of documents, the courier can either be pickpocketed or killed and looted. If the Dragonborn opts to kill the courier, this should be done outside either of the towns and out of sight of anyone, otherwise a bounty will be incurred.

Bring the forged documents to Frorkmar Banner-Torn

The forged copies must then be brought to Frorkmar Banner-Torn who is in Dawnstar.
