Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


Odral Helvi in the Governor's Hall in Caldera will ask you to replace some "erroneous" land deeds for the Ascadian Isles he has found in the Hlaalu Records in Vivec. The deed he gives you is obviously fake. There is now a choice between three paths: you can either steal the real deed from the records, report it to Crassius Curio, or bring it to the attention of the seller, Rovone Arvel.

Option #1: Reporting to Curio[edit]

If you talk to Curio about the matter and give him the fake deed, he'll reward you with an Amulet of Domination. You can then talk to Baren Alen in the Hlaalu Treasury Vaults about "erroneous documents" and he will sell you a copy of the real deed Helvi requested for ten gold. Helvi will believe you replaced the fake deed. Curio's disposition towards you increases by ten points if you take this option.

Option #2: Reporting to Arvel[edit]

Another option is to take the deed to Rovone Arvel, at his plantation north of Vivec. He will be very appreciative of your efforts and reward you with a Murdrum Ring. You can then talk to Baren Alen about making a copy of the real deed as above. Arvel's disposition jumps by 15 if you do this.

Option #3: Stealing the Deed[edit]

Stealing the deed isn't too difficult. It can be found in the Hlaalu Records office in the Hlaalu Canton in Vivec. Go through the Hlaalu Treasury in the waistworks to access the Records office, either directly or through the Hlaalu Vaults. The deed is in a small chest on the middle shelf of one of the bookcases. Valvosa Maryon will likely be nearby, so it requires a few skills in Sneak (Chameleon works great too). Take out the Ascadian Isles Land Deed and (if actually complying with Odral Helvi's shady mission for you) put in Odral's Land Deed.

Ending the Quest[edit]

Return to Helvi with the real or copied land deed to complete the quest. You will receive six scrolls (2 Scroll of Uth's Hand of Heaven, 2 Scroll of The Black Storm, 2 Scroll of Tranasa's Spelltwist) for completing the quest.


  • If Baren Alen is dead, Crassius Curio will still take the fake land deed and tell you to give Odral the real documents, leaving you no other choice than to steal them.
  • It is possible to pickpocket the fake land deed from Rovone Arvel after you give it to him. You can then give it to Crassius Curio to get his reward as well. It is not possible to pickpocket the fake deed from Crassius, and he won't have it on him if you kill him.


  • Even though Baren Alen says you have to pay 10 gold for the copy of the real deed, it's actually free. No gold will be deducted from your funds.

10 Odral Helvi wants me to replace a scroll in the Hlaalu Records in Vivec. The Records are part of the treasury, which is in the top level of the Hlaalu Waistworks on the north side. I should put the scroll in the chest of Ascadian land deeds.
