When the Dragonborn arrives in Riverwood, inquiring about the goings on around town, the topic of a local love triangle involving Faendal, Sven and the object of their mutual affection, Camilla will come up. The Dragonborn can then speak to the trio individually to find out more information.

Depending which of the young men spoken to first, either Sven or Faendal will give unhand a fake letter, meant to put Camilla off the other, to give to Camilla:

Faendal's letter Sven's letter

Deliver Faendal's (or Sven's) letter to Camilla[]

The Dragonborn must then choose which letter to deliver to Camilla.

Tell Sven about Faendal's letter / Tell Faendal about Sven's letter[]

It is possible for the Dragonborn to change allegiance by speaking to the other suitor about the deception.

Talk to Faendal / Talk to Sven[]

Once the decision has been made and a course of action chosen, the Dragonborn can then return to either Sven or Faendal with the good news. The consequence is, however, that the spurned suitor will have a decidedly less friendly attitude toward to the Dragonborn from then on.
