Okay, I went to the Jarl in Dragonsreach and everything was fine. Thanks anyway.

I think I'm really bad at this game, I went to recover 3 books for some guy at the mage colege and got decimated by mages inside the keep so many times. So I left it and went to do the quest where you kill bandits for the Jarl and got murdered several times in that cave as well. I got one shotted by an ogre thing that shook the ground as it walked (I was curious to see what it was so I went close and got killed). Is there a way to change the difficulty?
