The Cunning Prince of Oblivion[edit]

Mehrunes Dagon speaks to you:

"So you want power? Yes, many covet power, yes, but so few know why. Want you The Mehrunes Razor? Is very special, The Mehrunes Razor. Very nice, yes yes. Just, do one thing, and you have it, mmmm. Child have I that needs to be punished, yes. You will do this for lovely, lovely The Mehrunes Razor, yes?"


Mehrunes Dagon goes on:

"Mmm, Mortalcreature brave, good good. Now, go to (dungeon), kill frost daedra there. It thinks safe, ha, we slaughter frostflesh tight and everywhere. You kill it and go (worshipper's description), (him/her) (worshipper's name) in (town). Got good good The Mehrunes Razor for you. Kill frost daedra and see (worshipper's name) before (time limit) Mundal nights. Go now, (player's name). Dagon waits."


Mehrunes Dagon replies, annoyed:

"Scruh! Mortalcreature say no to Mehrunes Dagon! Mortalcreature know you time means nothing to Dagon, he remembers insult, yes. Hamita too black for Mortalcreature, no, I ... will ... remember (player's name)."

A Dish Served Cold[edit]

Travel to the dungeon named by Mehrunes Dagon and enter it. Once inside, find and kill the Frost Daedra. There may be multiple enemies of this type within the dungeon, but you must destroy the specified target to successfully complete the quest.

Dagon's prey returns to Oblivion.

Once your task is complete, travel to the town and tavern where Dagon's worshipper waits with your reward.

"Ah, you're (player's name), yes? (worshipper's name) here. I understand you successfully corrected one of Mehrunes Dagon's straying children. Excellent. Well, here is The Mehrunes Razor you were promised. Enjoy it. I don't think that we'll meet again. Goodbye."
