Ysgramor's Spoon[edit]

How about Ysgramor's Spoon? — Unsigned comment by StriderVM (talkcontribs) at 03:24 on 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Shoplifting and assassins[edit]

When I shoplifted some things from his shop, a few days later three assassins followed me and they were carrying a note written by Calixto which says that they have to teach the player a lesson (and if he or she dies, it doesn't matter). As I do not have the English version of Skyrim, quoting the letter doesn't really make sense. So I'm asking here if somebody else experienced the same and would like to post the letter. By the way, does this phenomenon occur after shoplifting in any other stores? 00:32, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

> It does indeed. I stole a sweetroll (oh, the irony) from the kitchen in Candlehearth Hall and the contract I found on the thugs was signed by Nils. -- 15:11, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Shop opened[edit]

In my experience Calixto open the shop at9 AM not from 5AM. Could someone confirm for edit? — Unsigned comment by Kurt zelda (talkcontribs) at 01:30 on 6 January 2012

Calixto is set to run his shop between 10am and 5pm. If you have experienced him opening the shop at 9am, it may be worth an in-game double check before editing though. --Krusty 09:59, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Looting + Reappearing Loot[edit]

Towards the beginning of my game I looted Calixto's place, then completed the Blood on the Ice mission. Now whenever I return after a few days the place is restocked with all the things I stole. Not sure what the time frame is, precisely, but worth knowing for sure. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 18:10 on 11 January 2012

Stores and houses can reset, it's not specific to his place. -Vardis 07:23, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Just a bit weird that this shop (or houses in general) do restock even if their owner is dead. WooShell 01:04, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Bug Shop Never Open?[edit]

A new playthrough, I have found on the 360 version, this place is perma locked, regardless of anything I do. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 01:13 on 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Did you break into it? That can cause it to be permanently locked if you are caught. — Kimi the Elf (talk | contribs) 07:49, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
I have this same problem on a new game on PS3. I picked the lock during business hours and entered, and Calixto accused me of trespassing and told me to leave. Cappo 23:08, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
PC here. It locked on me but I didn't break in. not sure if I had him give me the tour while it was after hours...though that is likely my case.
Any solution to fix this bug? There should be a way to set his disposition to least until I end up watching his decapitation...or potentially feasting upon his guts while in wolf form. (the arms on the metamorphic creature are just too ape-like..but I can imagine that flawed design away)--Theindividual 07:43, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
I've encountered the same problem; I went to the shop during opening hours but it's locked, meaning I had to break in in order to get inside. However, anytime I now go in Calixto is in trespassing mode, telling me to leave, which means I can't give him the strange amulet. Is there any way to fix this on consoles? -- Haravikk 13:02, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Never mind, it seems that if this happens you can still give the amulet to Calixto by waiting till he heads over to Candlehearth Hall, about 5pm or so. -- Haravikk 14:33, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
Make sure Calixto's not dead. (He's non-essential after Blood on Ice quest) Check the Hall of the Dead in Windhelm for his coffin or lack thereof. --Cybersquirt (talk) 08:13, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
I knew that the lock is glitched and the Butcher quest is probably the cause. When I was tasked to talk to Calixto about the amulet, it's been locked no matter the time. Then I reloaded the save and went to the shop after I spoke to Jorleif for the first time, and it was unlocked since 9AM.


It's a Master-level lock for me, not an Expert lock like the page currently says. Minor EditsThreatsEvidence 10:02, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

It is an Expert lock for me, just like the page says. Not sure why it would change, could be related to one of those bugs where it gets permanently shut? — Kimi the Elf (talk | contribs) 10:41, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
I can confirm it's a Master-level lock for me as well, and I'm at level 57. Perhaps it's a leveled lock (i.e. depends on the character level). BTW, the shop still opened, and I didn't try to break in. 17:01, 10 September 2012 (EDT)
I was in the middle of the Blood on the Ice quest, which could've been a factor. Minor EditsThreatsEvidence 10:53, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Had that "locked-out" problem too. Just time-shifted by "wait" in 4 hour steps... and from 5am in 1 hour steps. Suddendly I was inside... if I recall correctly even without opening the door. Anyway: this part of the quest needs a massive overhaul^^!! Took me hours to finally get it done. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 22:27 on 8 July 2012
A solution on how to proceed with BOTI can be found here (4th bullet). --Krusty 22:22, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
Blood on ice Calixto's House of Curiosities museum Always locked solution for xbox. Go to Windhelm wait until 6 pm, wait 14 more hours until 8 am, go to the door until the master lock message is seen and then wait 2 more hours close to the museum and it should now be open. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 04:21 on 22 October 2012
Don't have an account on here, and I don't feel like making one just to post this comment, but the lock is a Master level for me as well on PC. I'm level 28, but I'm alos having the always-locked bug. Perhaps the difficulty of the lock depends on if you are experienceing the bug or not? 02:40, 14 December 2014 (GMT)
Check the Hall of the Dead. In my game, it's a master level lock because he's dead.. he has a coffin in Windhelm's Hall of the Dead. --Cybersquirt (talk) 08:11, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
I just checked in the Creation Kit and the lock is leveled, with a minimum of an Adept-level lock. Robin Hood  (talk) 20:43, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Tour Dialogue[edit]

I never went to the House of Curiosities before I completed Blood on the Ice, and as a result have never taken the tour. Can we add a section with a transcript of Calixo's dialogue? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 17:26 on 10 August 2013‎

This will probably be added to Calixto Corrium's NPC page sooner or later. Forfeit (talk) 18:06, 10 August 2013 (GMT)
I just added the complete tour dialogue to his NPC page. :) --Krusty (talk) 19:34, 10 August 2013 (GMT)

A cellar?[edit]

There looks like there is a cellar through the cracks in the floor? Can a PC player with the dev kit please confirm or deny this - possible area removed from the game? Chaosworrier (talk) 10:46, 1 May 2014 (GMT)

It looks to me like a dummy area that was put there to create the illusion of a crawlspace or cellar. It doesn't look like it was ever intended to be developed into anything. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:23, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
I know this is a necropost, but to clarify for anyone else who is wondering, it's just a small area with nothing of interest in it; probably just there to make it look like there is something down there. It can't have been removed from the game because it's not big enough to possibly even stand in. AlphaAbsol (talk) 03:51, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
