King Kurog has given me a standing invitation to drink with him at the King's Cornerclub in Orsinium. I seemed to have impressed him, and he obviously needs someone to handle the more delicate problems facing his kingdom.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to King Kurog.
  2. Find a way into the temple.
  3. Get the key to the rectory.
  4. Save the priests and the High Priestess.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

If you take Eveli's offer for help, an Orc named Grumth will lead you to the back area of the temple, where you will be ambushed. If you refuse to let her shoot someone, you can make your way there yourself by passing around the far south side of the Mages Guild. When you get there, you'll be ambushed anyway. You will eventually find a priest outside who can direct you and give you a key to the back door.


  • If you have already defeated Molag Bal as part of the main story, you are given a third dialogue option to convince Captain Zugnor to let you help. He will say that if even half the stories about you are true, he'd be glad to have your help.
