Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Chores[edit]

Baladas Demnevanni at Arvs-Drelen in Gnisis will ask you to find three books: Nchunak's Fire and Faith, Chronicles of Nchuleft, and Antecedants of Dwemer Law. Fortunately, though the books are rare, they are not terribly difficult to find.

Buying the Books[edit]

If you have the money, the easiest method is to simply buy the books from Dorisa Darvel in Balmora (who has both Chronicles of Nchuleft and Nchunak's Fire and Faith), and Jobasha's Rare Books in the Foreign Quarter in Vivec (who has both Chronicles of Nchuleft and Antecedants of Dwemer Law).

If you have some spare gold, Ethes Evos at Arobar Manor in Ald'ruhn will sell you a copy of Antecedants of Dwemer Law for 300 gold. While he claims it's much less than the book is worth, the actual base value of the book is 25 gold, and while you won't get it for that price unless you're a real master of Mercantile, it will still be much less than the non-negotiable 300 he will charge for it.

Stealing the Books[edit]

All three books can be found in the Tribunal Temple's secret library in Vivec; and in the Holamayan Monastery.

The Tribunal Temple's Secret Library in Vivec is a difficult route. It is well hidden, cracking its locks will be a crime if observed, and once inside you'll have to watch out for the Ordinator guards when you steal the books.

Holamayan Monastery is found on a large but distant and obscure island on the east of the map, far north of the Shrine of Azura. You may have already found it as a part of the Main Quest (you can also reach it via a boat from Ebonheart's docks, but only after having advanced fairly far in the Main Quest). Unfortunately its entrance is only available at the hours of dawn and dusk. The books are guarded by monks, whom you are supposed to have as allies (eventually if not yet), so stealing from them needs stealth, as at the Secret Library.

The Temple in Gnisis also conveniently has two copies of Antecedants of Dwemer Law. See the individual book links for more locations.

Delivering the Books[edit]

Return to Baladas with the three books to complete the quest and receive a number of his 'trinkets' as a reward. This includes: Ondusi's Key, Amulet of Admonition, Second Barrier Belt, and the Surefeet shoes.
