It seems Basil Tylar has some beef with Lord Ebrat Skelden and needs you to help him complete another doll targeting Skelden directly.
He asks you for another length of rope, but when you go to Gallows Hill to get more, there is none to be had. Upon returning to Tylar for additional advice, there is an unexpected visitor, by the name of Komar Ramza.
Speak with Ramza - It would appear Tylar has been discovered.
If the guard discovers your mission, you quest will end with no reward. You can lie about your involvement to finish the quest for XP.
