Daggerfall Main Quest Walkthrough

15 February 2011

Although one can have many...many hours of fun in Daggerfall without even considering the main quest, one can easily get caught up in the intrigue the main quest produces. This page will hopefully guide you completely through all required, and optional, steps to solve the quest.

This information has been compiled from a number of sources, but most of this came from DaggerWeb. In pages where there is a detailed walkthrough the quests's text come from the quest QRC files as loaded by the utility DFQEDIT, available in the DF Files Area on these pages. If you see something missing from these pages, or even something that's...wrong (gasp), simply contact the WebMaster.
