Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Falco Galenus or Carnius Magius[edit]

You will have to wait three days from the previous quest until you receive a journal entry to see Falco/Carnius about the next quest (you will also have to leave Raven Rock and return). Who you speak to depends on who you've chosen to side with previously. Speak to Falco/Carnius about your next assignment to learn that Seler Favelnim recently has been picking fights with everyone at Raven Rock's tavern. He wants you to resolve the matter somehow.

Seler Favelnim[edit]

Find Seler in the tavern just northeast from Falco. As soon as you approach the entrance to the tavern, you will be greeted by Dralora Favelnim, Seler's wife. She will plead with you not to hurt her husband, explaining that he has been sick and tired lately. She asks you not to fight with Seler even if he attacks you, as he can't fight for very long anyhow.

Indeed, as soon as you approach Seler, he will attack you. He uses only Hand-to-hand, fortunately, and it is safe to fight him back the same way to knock him down until he talks. Even at a high difficulty level he doesn't hit you for very long before he asks you to fight him back. He begs for you to just kill him, and you are given a choice to fight or ask why he wants to die. If you don't give in to killing him, and continue questioning him, then after a short pep talk you should be able to convince him to give up his "suicide by adventurer" efforts. He'll remain, peacefully, in the Raven Rock Bar for the remainder of the game.

Alternatively, you can kill him – at the cost of an unhappy widow perpetually at the tavern door, and no reward if playing the Falco side.

Return to Falco/Carnius[edit]

Return to Falco/Carnius with the news and he will be impressed and reward you with some gold (1,500 from Falco or 2,000 from Carnius). If you killed Seler, you won't receive any reward from Falco, but Carnius still gives you the 2,000 gold.


  • If you are doing this quest for Falco, killing Seler will yield only a +6 Reputation gain for the East Empire Company.


  • Seler may disappear when this quest is accepted. This bug happens more often with MPP 1.6.5 because a syntax error that the Morrowind game engine and the Construction Set usually ignore was fixed. The issue resides in the PositionCell command in the script used in a wrong way. MPP 1.6.6 fixes this issue.
    • Pc22.png This can be fixed by using the console command PlaceAtPC "Seler Favelnim",1,20,1 inside the Raven Rock Bar.
