Quest Stages[edit]

Chateau of the Ravenous Rodent
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I need to find Valaste as quickly as I can. Shalidor says she's translated the last book I won from Sheogorath.
Objective: Talk to Valaste
Objective: Wait for Valaste to Open the Portal
I need to enter the portal Valaste opened to get to Sheogorath's realm.
Objective: Enter the Shivering Isles
Shalidor was waiting for me on the far side of the portal. I should speak to him.
Objective: Talk to Shalidor
Sheogorath has appeared.
Objective: Watch Sheogorath and Shalidor
I'm guessing Sheogorath won't let me advance without having a chat first. I should speak to him.
Objective: Talk to Sheogorath
Sheogorath's asked me head into the "Guesthouse" of his Chateau so that I can evict one of this wayward guests. I should enter the Guesthouse.
Objective: Enter the Chateau Guesthouse
Sheogorath says he wants one of his houseguests evicted, that they aren't fitting in. He also warned me that some of them are homicidal. I should talk to the guests and decide which one I want to evict.
Objective: Evict the Guest That Doesn't Belong
Sheogorath has "kindly" created a portal so I can continue my tour. I suppose I should take it.
Objective: Enter the Portal
Sheogorath sure does love the sound of his own voice. Time to talk to him again.
Objective: Talk to Sheogorath
Hidden Objective: Cold Brazier
Sheogorath wants me to tour another part of his Chateau, a maze. He thinks the ambiance in there is too dark, and wants me to light some braziers as I go. He also said something about "Bumps in the Night"?
Objective: Light the Braziers
I've lit the braziers, and need to make my way out of the maze.
Objective: Find the Maze Exit
I've found my way out of the maze. Sheogorath is back again to have a chat. Time for another conversation.
Objective: Talk to Sheogorath
The "manse" Sheogorath spoke of is one of the few places I haven't explored yet. Sheogorath wants me to meet his family within, and play with his heirlooms.
Objective: Explore the Manse
I've found the heirlooms Sheogorath spoke of. He gave me some confusing clues as to what to do: "Four lights in a row, poke one to make it glow." and "Four lights in a trough, poke one to turn it off."
Objective: Light All the Heirlooms
I've completed Sheogorath's little test. Time to speak to him again. Hopefully this will be one of the last times.
Objective: Talk to Sheogorath
Sheogorath told me the story behind his "Uncle Leo". The beast is apparently now an embarassment [sic] to the family, and needs to be disposed of.
Objective: Kill Uncle Leo
I've survived Sheogorath's trials. Hopefully now he'll just give me the last tome.
Objective: Talk to Sheogorath
Sheogorath said the tome is mine. I should collect it and return to Valaste.
Objective: Collect the Tome
☑Finishes quest Now that I have the final book, I should speak to Valaste.
Objective: Talk to Valaste

Only 2 Crystals need to be lighted. First the far Eastern one, then the far Western one.
