Joining the College[ | ]

Investigate the Bards College[ | ]

Early in the game, usually from Sven in Riverwood, the Dragonborn learns of the Bards College in Solitude. This information can come from any bard, however, not only Sven.

Once in Solitude, the Dragonborn can seek an audience with the headmaster of the College, Viarmo.

Tending the Flames[ | ]

Viarmo then intimates that in order to join the College, the Dragonborn must help him convince the Jarl to reinstate the festival of the Burning of King Olaf which she has banned as disrespectful to the memory of her recently slain husband. This involves finding a copy of the rare tome King Olaf's Verse.
