Sorry if this has been asked before but I wondered if anyone else here has tried to complete the "Missing in Action" side quest peacefully. I chose this simply cause in most games like this where I can talk my way out of really bad situations I thought there would be a way to persuade the guards into letting Thorald Graymane go.
I had heard rumors that you had to join the legion and get a hold of a uniform then the guards at northwatch would let him go. However even after completing the civil war quest line being with the imperial legion. No such luck.
Any suggestions? Or is it even possible to resolve the quest peacefully? I mean why would they give you that option if you couldn't?
Again sorry if this is a repeat post.
