The Stone of St. Alessia in Sedor

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Speak with Azzan in Anvil to receive this contract.
  2. Travel to the Chapel of Talos in Bruma and speak with Cirroc about the theft of the Stone of St. Alessia by bandits.
  3. Follow the bandits out of town - heading east - and you will encounter K'Sharr, one of their members.
  4. K'Sharr will tell you that ogres stole the Stone from the bandits. The ogres are holed up in Sedor - an Ayleid ruin (quite a ways) to the east.
  5. Proceed to Sedor and retrieve the Stone, evading or eliminating any ogres you encounter.
  6. Return the Stone to Cirroc and he will reward you with three Strong Potions of Healing.
  7. Report back to Azzan for payment and he will inform you that he has no more contracts for you.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Demotion and Assignment[edit]

Speak to Azzan in Anvil. He will tell you that Modryn Oreyn has been kicked out of the Guild as a result of Viranus Donton's death at Forsaken Mine. If you have not yet completed Burz's last two quests, Azzan will also inform you that you have been demoted to Defender for your part in the affair. If asked, he will tell you that you may be able to regain your former rank if you complete "a few contracts" first.

With that out of the way, Azzan will brief you on your next mission. The Stone of St. Alessia has been stolen from the Chapel of Talos in Bruma and you must recover it. Report to Cirroc at the chapel for further information.


When you find Cirroc, he will tell you the Stone was stolen by some bandits who were last seen heading to the east, and urges you go after them. Your compass will lead you to the bandit K'Sharr, who is loitering on a slope halfway between Wildeye Stables and Plundered Mine. He will tell you that he and his cronies stole the Stone, but were ambushed by ogres. They stole the Stone in turn, leaving him as the only survivor. He believes the ogres are now at Sedor, an Ayleid ruin along the unmarked road between Bruma and the Temple of the Ancestor Moths, and will mark its location on your map. You may kill K'Sharr at this point if you wish: you will not receive a bounty or gain any infamy for doing so, although killing him can start the Dark Brotherhood questline.


Make your way to Sedor and enter the ruin. There are seven Ogres inside, but you won't need to fight them all to recover the stone; see the place page for full walkthrough info. Upon entering you will need to fight at least one, with another possibly being attracted from the southernmost room. In the next room you will face another Ogre and again another who may be alerted to the fighting while wandering in the corridor to the east. An iron gate (C) to the north blocks the way, so instead step onto the nearby pressure plate, which opens an unseen gate (D). Head west and turn north and then north again. Head up some stairs, battling past another Ogre, until you reach a stone ledge. Press the push block nearby and jump down. The way is now open, so head into the northern room to recover the Stone, which is actually an amulet. With a very high Acrobatics skill and good timing, it is possible to skip most of the exploration by jumping up from near the pressure plate and to push the block from the apex of the jump.


Having recovered the Stone, return it to Cirroc, who will express his gratitude and give you what he can - three Strong Potions of Healing. Report back to Azzan to receive the standard level-dependent gold reward and one Fame point. He will also inform you that he has no more assignments for you.

There are several options at this point regarding promotions and your next quest:

  • If this is the first Fighters Guild quest you have completed since Trolls of Forsaken Mine, no promotions are available and you will need to go to Burz gro-Khash in Cheydinhal for your next quest - The Noble's Daughter.
  • If you have completed The Noble's Daughter already (but not Mystery at Harlun's Watch), Azzan will now be willing to reinstate you to your previous rank of Guardian. Your next quest will be Mystery at Harlun's Watch.
  • If you have already completed both of Burz' quests (The Noble's Daughter and Mystery at Harlun's Watch), you can now be promoted to the rank of Champion (Oreyn's previous title). Your next quest will come from Modryn Oreyn, in his house in Chorrol: Information Gathering.


  • It is possible to fast travel to Sedor after K'Sharr marks it on your map, even if you have not been there before.
  • It is possible to pickpocket the stone back from Cirroc, however it is considered a quest item and cannot be dropped.
  • Azzan may neither offer this quest, nor demote you to the rank of Defender, after you have completed Trolls of Forsaken Mine. This can occur regardless of whether you have completed both quests given by Burz gro-Khash. ?
    • On PC To fix this, you may manually set your rank to Defender before speaking with Azzan, using the console command Player.SetFactionRank 2228F 5.
  • Information Gathering will silently start after this quest is completed, regardless of whether The Noble's Daughter or Mystery at Harlun's Watch quests are completed or not.

  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in random order.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  • On PC It is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage FGC05Stone stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages. See SetStage for more information.
