Skyrim: How to Start the Saints and Seducers Questline

To be able to trigger the Saints and Seducers questline in both versions of Skyrim, players need to locate and interact with an NPC called Ri’saad, a Khajiit traveling merchant. Ri’saad can be found in many places, but we advise you to head towards the Khajiit camp located south of Whiterun and wait for him there. Once located, players just need to interact with him and question him about the troubles they have been facing along the road which will prompt him to give them a note. Read the note to trigger the Balance of Power quest, the first part of Saints and Seducers. To recap, here’s how to trigger the Saints and Seducers questline in Skyrim:

  • Go to the Khajiit camp located south of Whiterun.
  • Fast Forward until Ri’saad appears.
  • Talk to him and question him about the troubles along the road.
  • Read Ri’saad’s note to begin the quest.
