Skyrim:In My Time Of Need
The Dragonborn encounters some Alik'r warriors in search of a Redguard woman. They must choose whether to believe the warriors, and return the woman to custody, or trust the fugitive, and kill her pursuers. Either option offers a decent monetary reward. At any time after starting the main quest " Dragon Rising ," the Dragonborn will encounter Alik'r Warriors on the roads of Skyrim or at the entrance to Whiterun, arguing with the town guard for entry to the city.
When asked, they will explain that they are searching for a Redguard woman , who is a refugee from Hammerfell. When asked why they are searching for her, they will refuse to answer.
Since they are not welcome in Whiterun due to a prior incident with the guards, they will tell the Dragonborn to bring any news of their quarry to Rorikstead. There is no marker that leads to the Redguard woman that the Alik'r are looking for. If the Dragonborn tells Saadia about the two Alik'r Warriors looking for her, she becomes agitated and asks to speak privately. At this point, the Dragonborn can follow Saadia and speak with her privately or head back to the Alik'r at Rorikstead and inform them of her location.
Speaking to the Alik'r ends the quests and earns the reward. Once Saadia is alone with the Dragonborn, she will explain her side of the situation. According to claims, Saadia was forced to flee the province to Skyrim after speaking out against the Aldmeri Dominion , who then hired the Alik'r to hunt her down and assassinate her. She denies Kematu's accusations of her selling out her people to the Thalmor and of her being a traitor to the empire.
If the Dragonborn promises to help her, she also mentions an Alik'r Prisoner in the Dragonsreach Dungeon who could help in locating Kematu.
If Swindler's Den has been cleared prior to the quest, a dialogue option with Saadia will come up stating that Kematu's location is already known, thus avoiding the conversation with the Alik'r prisoner. Once inside the Dungeon one entrance is on the eastern wall of Dragonsreach , the Dragonborn can speak to the prisoner through the bars.
He agrees to help if his bail of is paid. This can be done by talking to one of the guards. Talk to the prisoner again, and tell him his fine has been paid, and he will reveal that Kematu is in a cave called Swindler's Den. The guard then takes his time releasing him.
Swindler's Den can be found due west of Whiterun at the base of a rocky hill in the middle of the plains. Kematu is guarded by several bandits, who must be defeated regardless of whose side is chosen Saadia's or Kematu's. Kematu and some of his party of mercenaries inside Swindler's Den. When the Dragonborn reaches Kematu, he does not attack on sight, allowing the Dragonborn to speak to him. Kematu gives his side of the story, claiming that Saadia betrayed Hammerfell, and that as a result, the Redguard city of Taneth fell during the war against the Aldmeri Dominion.
He explains that the Redguard houses wish to bring her back alive to face justice. To save Saadia from capture, simply kill Kematu. After the battle, return to the Bannered Mare in Whiterun and inform Saadia. She will offer a reward of When asked what he wants the Dragonborn to do, Kematu requests that they return to Saadia and convince her to meet at the stables, where she will be ambushed and brought to justice.
Head back to the Bannered Mare and lie to Saadia by telling her that the attempt to defeat all the Alik'r forces failed, that they are coming for her, and that there is a horse ready for her to escape on. Exit Whiterun with Saadia following, and head to the Whiterun Stables. Kematu will appear and immobilize Saadia. Speak with him one final time to collect the reward of Before collecting the reward from Kematu, the Dragonborn can attack and kill him instead. In doing so, the Dragonborn may avoid fighting Kematu's men.
Saadia will be enraged about being led into a trap and comment that she should have been warned first, but she will then be thankful for being rid of her pursuers and offer a reward of Killing Kematu after collecting the reward from him will cause Saadia to wake up and attack with her dagger, forfeiting her reward.
It is possible to earn by collecting the reward from both Saadia and Kematu, but they must both be killed in the course of the quest. This section contains bugs related to In My Time of Need.

Start Your Free Trial. Try Now. Objective Find the Redguard woman. The barmaid at the Bannered Mare in Whiterun is apparently a fugitive noble from Hammerfell. She claims she is on the run from assassins sent by rival houses in her homeland and needs someone to stop them before they find her.
The leader of the so-called "assassins" I've been asked to eliminate claims that Saadia betrayed her people to the Dominion and they are here to bring her to justice. I've agreed to lead her into an ambush at the Whiterun stables. Objective Lead Saadia to the Whiterun Stables. I've helped Saadia escape the clutches of the Alik'r sent after her. With their leader defeated, she believes the rest of them will scatter, affording her some much needed safety for now. Quest complete. After making arrangements with Kematu, I've delivered Saadia to him.
He assures me that she will be taken back to Hammerfell alive, though after that her fate is no longer in his hands. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following: Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
The warriors will tell the Dragonborn to lure her to the stables. Entering the Bannered Mare Tavern at this point will cause the game to crash. If this happens the quest will become impossible to complete, as Saadia and all other nearby individuals will engage in never ending combat with Letrush, who cannot be killed.
However, if the Dragonborn fast travels to the stables immediately after getting Saadia to follow, Letrush will be bypassed, and the quest can be completed. If Kematu is killed by the Alik'r, the quest will be stuck.
The marker will point to his corpse, and the objective will say "Kill Kematu or talk to him. If one chooses to talk to the two Alik'r Warriors about Saadia's location, the marker may point Whiterun's gate, even though they are not there.
Following her instead of fast traveling is less likely to trigger this bug. After the quest is complete, the two Alik'r who prompted it and subsequently moved to Rorikstead may appear by the gates inside Whiterun and never leave.
They will assist the Whiterun Guards and attack if the Dragonborn is caught committing a crime. With Dawnguard installed, they will assist in killing any Vampires that appear, including the Traveler if the player sides with the Dawnguard.
Ironically enough, they will never die from the Vampire attacks. The Alik'r can be removed by killing them, but their conspicuous placement next to large torches and near guards makes this difficult. For characters who do not have high Archery , one way to avoid incurring a bounty when killing them is to go inside Whiterun, and shoot an arrow at one of the them while hidden.
They will both begin looking for the attacker, at which point the player must stop hiding, causing the warriors to give chase. The guards will not interfere, as it appears to be an unprovoked attack killing the Alik'r in view of the guards will count as a crime. The player can then exit Whiterun with the Alik'r in pursuit and lure them to the outskirts of the city, where there are few witnesses, and they can be killed with impunity.
Another way to make killing them easier is to push the guard standing next to the gate into the small "room" next to the gate. From here, it will be easier to kill him with a sneak attack.
