Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Almoner Mission[edit]

Iulus Truptor at the Imperial Chapels in Ebonheart will ask you to perform a collection of donations from the Argonian Mission in town.

Alms from the Argonian Mission[edit]

If Im-Kilaya likes you enough (disposition of 50) he'll give you the whole 100 gold. However if you find the slave On-Wan concealed deep beneath the mission you can persuade Im-Kilaya into donating even more. Finding the slave also causes Im-Kilaya's disposition to jump by 40 points.

Alternatively, with high enough Speechcraft (and perhaps also if you have already returned Rabinna and/or Reeh-Jah here), you need not use blackmail. If his disposition is 80 or higher, Im-Kilaya will tell you this:

"The Imperial Cult has our respect. We are disappointed that the Imperial Cult does not speak out against the inhumane practices of slavery in Morrowind. But perhaps you are right. It is by demonstrating our superior commitment to civilization and humanity that we best disprove the Dunmer's barbaric insistence that we are no more than animals. Please accept this donation to the Imperial Cult on behalf of the province of Argonia."

after which he donates 200 gold. Approaching others in the Mission is fruitless; they apologize politely and direct you to speak to Im-Kilaya as their leader.

Return to Iulus. If you raised only 100 gold, you will receive a five point disposition bump, five points of faction reputation and two Exclusive Fortify Luck Potions. At 200 gold you receive a ten point disposition bump, ten faction reputation points, and the magical Zenithar's Frock. If you failed to collect enough gold, Iulus is disappointed and his disposition drops by ten.

Notes[edit]

  • You don't need to actually visit the Argonian Mission - or in fact leave the room. You can just as easily give Iulus 200 gold out of your own pocket right after he gives you the quest. Sure you're losing money, but for anything beyond a brand new character, 200 gold just isn't that big a deal.

30 ☑Finishes quest I told Iulus Truptor I was not able to raise enough gold from the Argonian Mission to reach the fund raising goal of 100 gold. He was disappointed, and told me to decide whether my talents and temperaments are suited for fund raising. Before I approach him again for an almoner's mission, I must be sure I want to give the Imperial cult my full commitment.
50 ☑Finishes quest I reached the Argonian mission fund raising goal, and delivered the 100 gold to Iulus Truptor. He seemed pleased. He gave me a little blessing, and told me to speak to him again when I'm ready for another almoner's mission.

Alms from the Argonian Mission (IC9_slave_hiding)
5 I found an Argonian slave named On-Wan hiding in a cell beneath the Argonian Mission. I suspect this is a secret the Mission would be eager to keep, since harboring runaway slaves is a crime. Perhaps this will give me leverage when I solicit for alms for the poor.
