Detailed Walkthrough

Quest Offer

I'm in rather a delicate situation, (player's first name). If I could count on your diligence and your silence, you could earn yourself, say, (random gold) gold pieces profiting on my misery. Sound enticing?

Quest Acceptance

The noble goes on:

Well, that's good anyway. Not long ago, during a time of financial stagnancy, I pawned a ring given to me by the Emperor himself. I figured that Uriel Septim never makes it down to this corner of the Empire, but now I hear his agents are in the area, and I must have to have that ring back. (pawnbroker's name), of (pawn shop) in (town), will only hold it for (time limit) more days. Here's the gold to pay for the ring. Good luck and (god's name) speed your journey.

Quest Decline

The noble answers:

(exclamation), blast, and (exclamation)! I'm surrounded by apathetic lazybones! Nothing personal, (player's first name).

Quest Object

The noble will give you a piece of gold, which you must use to buy back the ring. Travel to the specified town and visit the pawn shop during its open hours. Talk to the pawnbroker and exchange the gold for the ring. Head back to the noble when you have the ring. On your way back you might run into some knights who want to take the ring from you. Kill the knights; returning without the ring will cost you a lot of reputation.

Quest End

When the noble gets the ring back he/she will thank you by saying:

Oh good, oh good, the ring. Oh thank you, thank you, (player's first name). Here's the (random gold) gold pieces I promised. An expensive delivery, but truly worth every piece.
