Daggerfall:An Item on Loan
- Talk to a noble.
- Travel to the town named by the noble.
- Visit the temple and talk to the priestess.
- Travel to the town named by the priestess.
- Meet your contact there and give him/her the gem.
- Collect your reward.
- Be sure to follow the time limits.
Are you free for a few days to do me a little favor, (player's first name)? I just need something I borrowed brought back to its owner. Nothing too strenuous, and you'll be (random gold) gold pieces richer. A tempting offer, eh?
The noble goes on:
(exclamation), that's the spirit! I have this (religious item) I borrowed from my good friend (priestess' name), a priest in (temple) of (first town). It's somewhat of a rush to get it back to her -- she needs it in (first time limit) days. So please do hurry.
The noble answers:
That's too bad. Well, I'll just hire someone else then.
Travel to the town mentioned by the noble and visit the priestess in the local temple. Give her the item you got from the noble and she will say:
Oh good, my (noble's item)'s back. Thank you, (player's first name). But there seems to be something stuck in it. Oh, I see ... this stone. Would you be good enough to bring this pebble over to (noble's name)'s friend, (noble's friend's name), over at (building) in (second town)? I believe (he/she) has your gold, but you better hurry. (noble's name) runs out of patience if (he/she) has to wait longer than (second time limit) days.
Travel with that new item to the noble's friend in the second town. Find him/her by asking around in town until you know his/her whereabouts. Meet him/her and hand over the gem you got from the priestess. Collect your reward afterwards.
On your way to the noble's friend you may run into some rogues trying to get the gem from you. You can hand it over to them or you can fight them. If you hand the item over, naturally you cannot complete the quest successfully.
When the noble's friend gets the gem, he/she will say:
Ah, good. The (gem) is as exquisite as I'd been told. Fine work, (player's first name). Here's your (random gold) gold for your speed and silence.
If the quest was successful:
|Noble you got the quest from||+5|
|Noble's associated factions||+2|
|Thieves Guild associated factions||-10|
A failed quest results in a reputation loss according to the table below.
(Allies/Enemies affiliations for listed factions are not considered)
- 5x One Rogue every one in-game minutes (20% chance) after you got the gem from the priestess
- If you keep either of the items, it will remain in your inventory and won't vanish once the quest is over, unlike most quest items.
