A Fortunate Find
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdThis quest is started after asking Svea, who runs the Amber Creek General Store in the town, "Can I help you with anything?" She says that you can. A treasure hunter passing through mentioned a ring that actually used to belong to her family. The ring was made from the first piece of amber found at the town by the blacksmith of the time, and given to her family. The ring was sold, but she would like it back if it is just lying around. If you find the ring itself before asking Svea about it, this will also start the quest, albeit in a different manner, as will hearing about Harold at Falskaar Docks.
"Svea, who runs the general store in Amber Creek, has asked me to look into an massive old amber ring that her family sold years ago. Harold, a potential treasure hunter is staying at the inn, and may know more."
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdYou can then ask her several more questions about the ring. She tells you that her father sold it fifteen years ago to a travelling merchant, when Amber Creek was on hard times, and split the money amongst the townsfolk. It used to be mounted on a suit of armour, the chestpiece of which is displayed in the shop.. The ring was then on a ship which sank.
After asking all the questions, you can optionally go and see the treasure hunter, Harold, who is in the Amber Mead Inn, and Wulf at Falskaar Docks. Asking Harold about the ring will result in him telling you that he needs it, and that it was on a ship that sank, although he doesn't know where. You can then say "I had some more questions about the ring" and he will tell you more. Asking the various questions will result in Harold telling you that he was in Helgen when it was destroyed, and that his family lost everything. He says that he needs the ring so that he can sell it to support his family.Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC Ltd
"Harold, who is currently staying at the Amber Mead Inn in Amber Creek, has asked me to help him find a massive old amber ring that Svea's family sold years ago. He needs the money he can get from selling it in Skyrim."

Wulf will tell you when asked "Do you know where the Frostrunner's wreck is?" that he thinks it is off the coast by an ice cave. If queried, he will say that he didn't tell Harold because he didn't trust him, and thought that he was making up the story about his family.

You can safely swim out to the shipwreck, although there are two bears on the island itself. The Waterlogged Chest containing the ring is at the bottom of the wreck, too deep to manage without waterbreathing, and there are other chests containing treasure scattered around.Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC Ltd
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdOne solution to the waterbreathing problem is to go to the island with the bears on. There are two random levelled bears outside. Inside Bjarrik's Demise itself is another levelled bear, a Chest, some bones and blood, and a table on which are an Apothecary's Satchel, Bjarrik's Journal and Bjarriks Special Brew. In the journal, Bjarrik says that he was exploring the wreck of the Frostrunner and managed to come up with a waterbreathing potion. Unfortunately, being drunk at the time, he was unable to remember the recipe. Bjarriks Special Brew will give 180 seconds of waterbreathing when drunk.
Once you have the Massive Amber Ring, you can sell it to either Harold or Svea. Harold, if you offer to sell it to him, will give you 100 Gold, completing the quest. This is not the best option. Svea, on the other hand, will give you 300 Gold when asked. She will then give you the Damaged Ceremonial Armour and ask you to take it to Rangarr to be fixed.
"I decided to sell the ring to Svea. She paid me, and asked me to take the ring and it's respective cuirass to Rangarr so he could reattach them."
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdTake both the armour and ring to Rangarr and ask him to reattach the ring. He will agree, and take them both off you, saying that it will be ready in a few hours. Three hours later, if Rangarr is asked "Is the armour don yet?" he will say that it is and that he did it at no charge. He will give you the Fixed Ceremonial Armour, which needs taking back to Svea.
Svea will give you another 100 Gold and ask you to give the armour to Gabrial, who is in the Amber Mead Inn. Speak to Gabrial and tell him that Svea wants him to have the armour. He will take it and thank you.
"Gabrial thanked me, amazed at what he had just received."

Ask him "How long have you and Freya been married?" and he tells you that their tenth wedding anniversary is coming up, and that he would like you to help him get a special gift.
Once you agree, he says that his wife's mother had a special sapphire necklace that she always wore. When both parents were killed by bandits, the mother managed to hide the necklace and it was brought back to Freya, but a few days later the bandits broke in and stole it. Henrik wants you to help him make a replica, which he says Rangarr in Amber Creek can make.
"Henrik has asked me to help him replicate a necklace that means a lot to Freya. I need to go to Grimrott Grotto, down the shore far to the west, to retrieve a special rubied sapphire for it."
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdFirst, you need an Exotic Rubied Sapphire, one of which can be obtained from Grimrott Grotto along the coast to the west. If you had asked Henrik about the coast earlier, you will know that this is a former pirate lair onto which the cliff collapsed, but which is rumoured to still be occupied by the undead inhabitants. Henrik will tell you something similar again, and he marks the grotto on the map.
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdCredit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdGo west to the grotto, which is indeed inhabited by undead, Skeletons and Draugr. The Skeletons are unlikely to pose a threat; the Draugr will likely be more challenging. The grotto is one large cave filled with water in the centre. On the west wall, past the partially sunken ship, is a throne on which there is an ambush Draugr, with a chest to the right and the Old Pirate Chest to the left. Open the pirate chest and take the sapphire. Of note, further to the left of the throne is a Word Wall which teaches Fight, the second word of Champions Spirit.
Once you have the Exotic Rubied Sapphire, go and see Rangarr in Amber Creek. Tell him that Henrik wants Rangarr to make a necklace for him using the ruby, and he says that he had received a letter about it. He needs something called Fine Gold to make it, which Wulf brings to him from Skyrim, and which is then brought from the docks by trade caravan, but the latest shipment has not arrived.
"Rangarr requires a special type of gold called Fine Gold in order to make the necklace. His last shipment disappeared, and he suspects bandits are to blame. I need to head to Olgrahm's Tower, on the cliff's edge to the east, to retrieve his gold. Once I have it, I need to bring it back to Rangarr so he can begin his work on the necklace."
Credit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdCredit: Alexander J Velicky/Bethesda/eGDC LtdRangarr believes that the bandits of Olgrahm's Tower have stolen it, and he marks the tower on the map, although, if you have been to the lowlands, you will at the very least have passed by the tower and possibly been attacked by its occupants. Go to the tower. There are three bandits in and around it. On the ground floor inside the tower is a chest marked Stolen Shipment. Inside this chest is a Fine Gold Ingot. Take it and return to Rangarr.
Tell Rangarr that you have the gold and he says that he will get started on making the necklace, and that it will be ready in a few hours. He takes the Fine Gold Ingot and the Exotic Rubied Sapphire from you.
Once three hours have passed, return to Rangarr and collect the necklace from him.
"Rangarr has crafted the replica, a beautiful and exotic Rubied Sapphire Gold necklace. I need to bring this to Henrik so he can give it to Freya."
Take the necklace back to Henrik. In return for it, he gives you a Flawless Amethyst and a Flawless Garnet.
"I brought Henrik the necklace. He loved it, and will be giving it to Freya when they celebrate their anniversary."
