  4. Travel to Tel Aruhn or Tel Branora for a reward.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

The Beauty[edit]

On the road to Balmora from Seyda Neen, about halfway between Balmora and Pelagiad, you will find Maurrie Aurmine. She tells you she was robbed by a handsome man by the name of Nelos Onmar. She asks you to deliver one of her gloves to him in Pelagiad as a token of her love.

The Bandit[edit]

Nelos may be found at the Halfway Tavern up the hill in Pelagiad. He seems touched by the news and gives you a note to deliver back to Maurrie. If you return to Maurrie she will be overjoyed and will actually attempt to set you up with someone else. If you are male, it will be Emusette Bracques at the Plot and Plaster in Tel Aruhn, or if you are female it will be Barnand Erelie at Sethan's Tradehouse in Tel Branora. See the appropriate one for a reward of three Exclusive Restore Health potions and a 20 point disposition boost.

Notes[edit]

  • Maurrie incorrectly states that Pelagiad is to the north, when in fact, it is to the south.
  • After talking to Barnand/Emusette, Maurrie and Nelos will disappear.

10 While on the road northwest of Pelagiad, I met a beautiful young Breton woman, Maurrie Aurmine, who seemed distressed after being attacked by a bandit.
20 It seems this young woman is not as distressed as I thought she was...or at least not for the reasons I thought she was. It seems that although this bandit, Nelos Onmar, has stolen her jewels and her gold, he has also stolen her heart. Foolish girl.
30 Maurrie has asked me to track down this Nelos, and to deliver to him her glove as a token of her affection. It seems a silly task, as she offers no reward, and asks me to do this simply for the sake of love.
40 I have agreed to try and find the bandit Nelos Onmar, and to deliver the glove of this young Breton woman. She believes he is in Pelagiad, so perhaps I can find more out about him there. I fear for her heart, for these outlaws care nothing for others, only for the booty they can obtain.
50 ☑Finishes quest I've decided not to attempt to find the bandit Nelos Onmar. I have no time for this silly girl's childish fantasies.
60 I have located Nelos Onmar, and brought to him Maurrie's glove. He seemed moved by this, and has given me a note to give to her. Perhaps this rogue can be moved by the young woman's heart, but perhaps it is but a game to him. Either way, I have been given his note to deliver to her.
100 ☑Finishes quest I have brought the note from Nelos Onmar back to Maurrie Aurmine. She seemed overwhelmed by its contents, and is full of gratitude for my having delivered it. In return, she has suggested I visit her friend Barnand Erelie in Tel Branora. She believes I would do well to meet this man, and that we might enjoy one another's company. I have seen stranger things happen in the past few days.
105 ☑Finishes quest I have brought the note from Nelos Onmar back to Maurrie Aurmine. She seemed overwhelmed by its contents, and is full of gratitude for my having delivered it. In return, she has suggested I visit her friend Emusette Bracques in Tel Aruhn. She believes I would do well to meet this woman, and that we might enjoy one another's company. I have seen stranger things happen in the past few days.
110 I have visited Barnand Erelie, at the suggestion of Maurrie Aurmine. Barnand knew how I had helped Maurrie, and was grateful. He gave me some healing potions as a reward.
115 I have visited Emusette Bracques, at the suggestion of Maurrie Aurmine. Emusette knew how I had helped Maurrie, and was grateful. She gave me some healing potions as a reward.
