 Quick Walkthrough
 Detailed Walkthrough
Erik can be found propositioning visitors of the Frostfruit Inn in the town of Rorikstead. Should the nature of his request be inquired, he will say that he wants to become an adventurer. Furthermore, Erik adds that his father is not willing to allow it and would like him to be persuaded to change his mind.
Mralki, Erik's father, is the innkeep of Frostfruit Inn and as such can often be found tending to the counter. A conversation with Mralki reveals that he can't afford to buy his son armor. An offering of gold to pay for armor to outfit Erik or some stern words is enough to change his mind. If your Speech isn't that high but your Pickpocketing is, you can pickpocket the gold back from him after offering to pay for Erik's armor.
Once Erik is informed of Mralki's new disposition he will say that perhaps one day stories of adventure can be swapped over a mug of ale. When you later visit him again, he will now be clad in armor and will be calling himself Erik the Slayer.
- If Erik isn't found inside of the inn, he may be farming nearby.
- This quest is a prerequisite to use Erik as a follower.
- Giving gold for the armor counts as a bribe towards the "Snake Tongue" achievement.
