Taking Sides Achievement in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Join the Stormcloaks or the Imperial Army
How to unlock Taking Sides
There are two ways to play this: you either go and do a quest for Legate Rikke who can be found in Castle Dour at Solitude; or you go and do a quest for Galmar Stone-Fist who’s in the Palace of Kings at Windhelm. Your choice, but for the purposes of the next three achievements, we’re going to talk as if you go down the path of the Imperial Army – because that’s what I did! Regardless of which way you go though, the achievement will pop after you’ve proved yourself to whichever side you choose.
