Detailed Walkthrough

Quest Offer

The beldam says:

Yes, as a matter of fact, thou could help us, (player's first name). We are an isolated coven, viewed with fear and hostility in the outside world. If thou would procure for us a certain rare tome being held for us in (town), we would be happy to give you, say, a special (magical item) personally created for you.

Quest Acceptance

The beldam goes on:

Wouldst thou? The name of the tome is (book's name) -- a very rare book indeed. Even if one were to find a copy, the price would be quite prohibitive. We are lucky, therefore, to have a friend in (town), a (contact's description) named (contact's name) who has stolen a copy. If thou wouldst meet (him/her) at (building's name), (he/she) will give thee the book. We will expect thee back in (time limit) days. After that time, the book will be of no use to us. May (Daedra Prince) watch thy journey.

Quest Decline

The beldam answers:

Well, then we shall wait for the next wandering traveler. Our need is not that desperate.

Quest Object

A simple errand: just travel to the town which was mentioned and meet your contact in a building there. He/she will greet you by saying:

Awright, (player's first name), here's the book. Just watch yourself. The guards are combing (town) for that thing.

As soon as you receive the book from him/her someone shouts:

Stop! Thief!

and a knight will appear. You can either fight him or make your escape; it makes no difference for the quest outcome. Bring the book back to the beldam (you may encounter more knights on your way back) and collect your reward.

Quest End

After receiving the book the beldam says:

Ah, there it is. I hoped you had an opportunity to peruse the page, good (player's first name). You are not likely to find its like again very soon. Well, here is your (magical item).
