Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak to Edryno Arethi for business.
  2. Travel to Hla Oad.
  3. Speak to Murudius Flaeus to receive a key or find out where the hidden chest is.
  4. Get the gold with the key or pick the lock.
  5. Return to Edryno Arethi.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


Edryno Arethi in her house on the Hlaalu Waistworks in Vivec will ask you to collect 800 gold owed by Murudius Flaeus of Hla Oad.

Murudius Flaeus[edit]

Flaeus can be found at his house in Hla Oad and will give you a key to his hidden money chest if you raise his disposition up to around 90 or perform a successful intimidate (any disposition). Alternatively, you can just find and pick the chest yourself to get the money. In fact, talking to the other townsfolk might subtly point you to the hidden chest. If you still can't find it, it's hidden under Fadila's house, just to the left of Murudius'. The chest contains a little more than the debt requires, 943 gold to be exact.

Return to Arethi[edit]

Return to Arethi in Vivec with the money to complete the quest. She takes 400 gold for half the debt, and the extra money in the chest is yours to keep.


  • You can get this quest whether you belong to House Hlaalu or not.
  • You can avoid the trip by ending the conversation after you receive the orders. Start a new conversation and just pay 400 drakes yourself.
  • A good way to double your income from this quest is to kill Murudius, search his body for the chest key and use it to recover the money from the chest. When you return to Edryno Arethi, tell her that Murudius is dead. She will thank you but tell you she cannot pay you. You will have completed the quest and can still keep all of the money you recovered.
