P06B: The Fallen

Head to talk with the Jarl of Whiterun now...  He is not very wild about the idea but with a little persuading you can get him to agree.  You reveal that Alduin is back, and the Jarl freaks a little -- and then you get to the nitty-gritty: the Jarl wants something from you -- he wants insurance that his enemies will not attack while Whiterun is dealing with the Dragon.  This flags the Side Quest Season Unending.  Clearly we need to return to speak with the Greybeards. 

When you tell Arngeir what you need he agrees to help, dispatching you to invite the opposing Generals to High Hrothgar for the peace conference.  Head out to the markers and make the invitations now.

First to The Palace of Kings to talk with Ulfric, then to Solitude to speak with Tullius, who also agrees to attend the peace conference.  Now return to Hrothgar and tell Arngeir the good news!  The problem is he does not see it as good news -- in fact he seems to be having second thoughts.


Springing the Trap


Take your seat at the table and wait for the others to arrive and be seated, and then proceed with negotiating a peace.  You will have to make some concessions to make this happen, and they have to be acceptable to each party -- I gave the Empire Winterhold, and Markarth to the Rebels.  Nobody was really happy with the decisions that I made -- I refused to allow the Empire to push for more than the straight-forward trade, and eventually they both agreed.

The agreement completes the Side Quest Seasons Ending.  Now we need to resume the main story line.  Esbern jumps to our aid, explaining the best way to lure the Dragon in, and you learn the Shout Call Dragon as the result.

Springing the Trap

Just when everything seems to be going well Delphine demands that you kill the Master of the Greybeards, claiming that it is a basic moral imperative that he be slain.  That will have to wait -- right now we need to head to Dragonsreach and tell the Jarl we are ready to proceed.

-- Trapping a Dragon --

The Jarl will show you where the Dragon was kept -- and you should head to the open section at the end before you summon the target.  When he arrives use the Dragonrend Shout to cause him to fall, then back further into the covered area, luring the Dragon in -- do NOT battle it!  As soon as it gets far enough inside it is trapped, and you have succeeded!

At this point you need to interrogate the Dragon -- he agrees to tell you all -- and to take you to Alduin!  The thing is, he has to TAKE you there, you cannot get there on your own...  That means you will have to release him.  Make sure you have stocked up on pots, then tell the guard to release him.  You will be taken by the Dragon to the Dragon Stronghold -- good luck!

This ends the quest and unlocks the Achievement "The Fallen" (20 GS) and flags the next quest in the series, The World-Eater's Eyrie.

I have already beaten the civil war quests on the imperial side and dominated the rebels. When I go to dragonsreach and do the shout the dragon never shows. The jarl says come on we're ready. It's obviously not working. Am I doing something wrong? Does anyone have any suggestions? Please Please Please help!!! Thank You in advance!
