 Detailed Walkthrough
 Carnius Magius
Carnius will tell you that the crazy Nord you threw out of Raven Rock earlier, Hroldar the Strange, is actually one of his men. Carnius needs you and Hroldar to intercept a report from Falco. You are to meet Hroldar in the courtyard of Fort Frostmoth, follow him and then go and deliver the messenger to Hroldar. It is important that the messenger never reach the fort alive and it must not be obvious that he was killed for the report. Instead, Hroldar will sic some wolves on him to make it look like an accident.
 Meet with Hroldar
Hroldar is in the center of Fort Frostmoth's courtyard in front of the well. Speak to him and he'll start off towards the West...follow him. He'll lead you a little way out of town and then tell you to go and fetch the messenger.
 Finding the Messenger
Finding the messenger seems to be a little more difficult, however, as you are not given a clear indication where he might be found. The obvious guess would be to check around Raven Rock for anyone around who might know something or for people leaving the colony in the direction of the fort. Fortunately, it won't take long as you'll find Tirvel Balen on the East end of the colony who will readily confess to having to deliver a report. In fact, he will actually ask if you'd help escort him to the fort...agree of course.
 Eliminating the Report
Once you are escorting Tirvel make your way back to Hroldar. As soon as Tirvel gets near the two Black Wolves near Hroldar will attack the messenger (and you if you get too close). Wait until the messenger dies and then talk to Hroldar who will give you a Note from Carnius and three Scrolls of Savage Tyranny. Read the letter to learn that Carnius wants you to kill Hroldar for him. You can use the scrolls or not, but get rid of the Nord in any way you can.
 Back to Carnius
Return to Carnius to report the 'good' news about the death of the messenger and Hroldar. Carnius will reward you with 1000 gold.
- Hroldar can die before you are told to kill him. In this case, Carnius tells you that you will receive no reward but in fact you receive the usual 1000 gold.
