Bite the Hand That Feeds You is a quest that focuses on the thief Morndas from the Blood of Kings quest line. As such, said quest line is one of the prerequisites of this quest, the other being the vanilla quest The Cursed Tribe.

Speaking to Anum-La in Riften some time after the events of Blood of Kings, the player learns that our old friend Morndas is in town, specifically at Haelga’s Bunkhouse. Go there, and take the ladder down to the basement/cellar part, where you will find Morndas playing a card game with an Orc named Karg (with several body guards of Karg’s watching the pair play). Watch as the scene gets more and more tense, and then finally explodes into violence, Karg and his bodyguards attacking Morndas and the player.

After they are all defeated, Morndas expresses worry, as Karg, like the Player, was blood-kin. She explains that Karg’s brother Lurgok once inadvertently saved her from getting falsely arrested when he vouched for her after he bit her hand after she tried to steal his coin purse. The thief then asks the Dragonborn to accompany her to Largashbur in order to tell Lurgok about Karg’s death.

Arriving in Largashbur, Morndas tells Lurgok that Karg is dead, upon which Lurgok replies that Malacath has provided him a gift in the afterlife. You see, Lurgok is about to die as part of the Orcs’ traditional blood price; the repercussions one faces when they wrong another member of the stronghold.

Lurgok’s crime is that of cannibalism- killing and eating a Nord Blood-Kin who approached him wanting to understand the plight of the Orcs. Morndas tells Lurgok that, like it or not she intends to free him, paying his blood price in gold.

The player is then given the option to either exit the stronghold and leave Lurgok to his fate or go to the chief and pay Lurgok’s blood-price.

If the Dragonborm decides to leave Lurgok to his fate, exit the stronghold- beware, though, doing this will cause the player to fail the quest.

If the Dovahkiin decides to pay Lurgok’s blood-price, they can either pay 500 gold or brawl with the chief for the erasure of the debt. Once that’s done, return to Lurgok. He has a short conversation with you and Morndas, and then becomes available for you to recruit him as a follower, thus completing the quest.
