Objective: Talk to Farengar
At the end of your conversation with Jarl Balgruuf the Greater, he asks you to consult with his court wizard, Farengar Secret-Fire. Follow the Jarl into Farengar’s study, where the Jarl introduces you.
Farengar has a job for you almost immediately: to delve into a dangerous ruin in search of an ancient stone tablet. Ask for further information, and Farengar explains you’re to look for something called a “Dragonstone,” a tablet said to contain a map of the dragon burial sites across Skyrim.
Farengar believes the stone is interred in the main chamber of Bleak Falls Barrow, and he has “reliable sources” that have confirmed as much. Before you leave, you can speak to Farengar about a variety of topics to gain a deeper understanding of his role in the Jarl’s court.
If you’ve already explored Bleak Falls Barrow and found the Dragonstone, you can simply inform Farengar and hand it over, shortening this quest considerably. Skip to the “Quest Conclusion” section for your next actions.
