Like Blood From A Stone
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I need a key to gain access to the mine. The mine's foreman, Nox, carries one that I could pickpocket. Benar also keeps one under guard in the Rethan manor house.
Complete one: Obtain Benar Rethan's Key or Obtain the Foreman's Key
I acquired a key. I should use it to gain access to the mine.
Objective: Unlock the Vassir-Didanat Mine
I must search the mine for any evidence of wrongdoing.
Objective: Search the Mine
According to a document I found, an alchemist named Gavros is conducting vile experiments in a Daedric shrine deep within the mine. I should explore the ruin.
Objective: Search the Daedric Ruins
I found even more incriminating documents describing Gavros' experiments. I must find this mysterious alchemist.
Objective: Find Gavros
I found Gavros. He appears to be in poor condition. I should talk to him.
Objective: Talk to Gavros
Gavros utilized a Daedric alchemical formula to turn people into something resembling ebony. I should claim the scroll containing the formula before it falls into the wrong hands.
Objective: Take the Mysterious Formula
I discovered the secret of Vassir-Didanat's success and acquired the Daedric formula that made it possible. I should report my findings to Malur Rethan.
Objective: Talk to Malur Rethan
I gave Malur a summary of the mine's condition, as well as the scroll containing the Daedric formula. While he reports these findings to a Hlaalu councilman, I must track down Benar and detain him until Hlaalu constables arrive.
Objective: Find Benar at Rethan Manor
Benar lays slain, and I've been ambushed by his murderer. I must kill this mysterious assassin.
Objective: Defeat the Assassin
The assassin dropped an interesting document. I should read it.
Objective: Take the Assassin's Orders
It appears that Malur, not Benar, orchestrated the horrors in the Vassir-Didanat ebony mine. He plotted to frame Benar and I to avoid suspicion. I must track him down in the nearby town of Balmora.
Objective: Go to Malur's Meeting with Councilor Rayveth
Malur is no where to be found, but the Hlaalu trade baron he reports to, Councilman Rayveth, lounges nearby. I should talk to him.
Objective: Talk to Councilor Rayveth
Councilor Rayveth urged me to kill Malur to resolve the situation in the Vassir-Didanat mine. I must track the corrupt businessman to his residence in Balmora and end his vile scheme.
Objective: Kill Malur Rethan
Malur still carries the Daedric formula. I should take it back.
Objective: Take the Formula
I killed Malur and reacquired the formula. I should return to Rayveth to resolve this business. He will likely ask for the scroll. I must decide what to do with this powerful document.
Objective: Return to Councilman Rayveth
☑Finishes quest I decided to give the Daedric scroll to Rayveth. I should talk to him to receive my reward. (If you choose to hand over the scroll)
Objective: Talk to Councilor Rayveth
☑Finishes quest I decided to destroy the Daedric scroll. I should discuss my reward with Rayveth. The payment may be significantly reduced, but he still owes me something. (If you choose to destroy the scroll)
Objective: Talk to Councilor Rayveth
