Quest Stages[edit]

Empty Nest
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
There seems to be some sort of commotion in town. I should speak to Tree-Minder Pavu and see what's going on.
Objective: Talk to Tree-Minder Pavu
Pavu says the Hist tells her that the tribe's latest clutch of eggs is in peril, but the egg-tenders have not spoken of any troubles. She has asked me to discreetly look into matters with the help of her assistant, Iskenaaz.
Objective: Investigate the Egg-Tenders' Quarters
Hidden Objective: Talk to Keenem
Hidden Objective: Leaf 1
Hidden Objective: Talk to Mimme
Hidden Objective: Find Letter
I didn't find anything unusual in the egg-tenders' quarters other than a hidden parcel of a common herb. I should show it to Iskenaaz and see what he thinks.
Objective: Talk to Iskenaaz
The herbs I found in the egg-tenders' quarters are suspicious, but not enough to form any conclusions about. Iskenaaz suggested we head to the uxith, the nest, to check on the eggs.
Objective: Investigate the Uxith
Hidden Objective: Investigate the Egg Nursery and Speak to Egg-Mind
I found more of the dragonthorn plants among an empty nest. The egg-tenders claim that the eggs were unwell and returned to the Hist. Both seemed agitated at the idea that something is wrong with the clutch. I should speak to Iskenaaz about this.
Objective: Talk to Iskenaaz
The egg-tenders are acting oddly, but my only real lead is some suspicious dragonthorn plants found at the uxith and the egg-tenders' quarters. Iskenaaz says the tribe cultivates it at a dry glade nearby. We should head there to see what we can find.
Objective: Search the Herb Glade
Hidden Objective: Journal
Hidden Objective: Check the Body
We found the body of an Argonian in the drying hut at the glade. He possessed a note instructing him to kill Haxara. I also found her journal. This is proof she's been helping steal eggs. I should show Iskenaaz what I found.
Objective: Talk to Iskenaaz
Another sick Argonian, like the one brought to Bright-Throat Village, stumbled into the glade and died as Iskenaaz and I were talking. I should examine it.
Objective: Examine the Dead Aberration
The misshapen creature was missing most of its scales. They come off at the slightest touch. It likely lost a lot of them trekking through the swamp. I should see what Iskenaaz thinks of all this.
Objective: Talk to Iskenaaz
Iskenaaz believes that the creatures are being sent by the Veeskhleel to poison his tribe and Hist. He suggests we try to follow the creature's trail back to its origin and root out the Veeskhleel.
Objective: Follow the Scales to the Aberration's Origin
Iskenaaz and I were able to follow the shed scales back to a swampy, foul-smelling cavern. We should head inside and see what lurks within.
Objective: Search the Blight Bog Sump
Hidden Objective: Enter Cavern
We found Haxara with more of the deceased aberrations. She seems distraught. I should speak to her and try to make sense of what's going on here.
Objective: Talk to Haxara
Haxara is inconsolable. She claims that the creatures are her children. That seems unlikely, but the room reeks of alchemical odors. We should look around for clues about what the Veeskhleel are doing in here.
Objective: Investigate the Veeskhleel Laboratory
Hidden Objective: Bad Egg
Hidden Objective: Green Poison
Hidden Objective: Orange Poison
Hidden Objective: Ree-Nakal's Writings
I found evidence that Ree-Nakal, the Veeskhleel leader, has been experimenting on stolen eggs to try and give them life, resulting in the creatures we've encountered so far. I should let Iskenaaz and Haxara know the ugly truth.
Objective: Talk to Iskenaaz
Objective: Talk to Haxara
Iskenaaz left to warn his tribe about what we discovered in this cavern, but Haxara insists on staying while I deal with the Veeskhleel and their creations. She said we may be able to follow the poison fumes given off by her children to locate them.
Objective: Follow the Green Fumes to Their Origin
Hidden Objective: Follow Green Fumes
Objective Hint: Kill Ojei
Objective: Follow the Orange Fumes to Their Origin
Hidden Objective: Follow Orange Fumes
Objective Hint: Kill Xul-Mot
Haxara tried to reason with the tortured creatures, but they responded only by attacking us. I was forced to kill them. I should check on Haxara. That couldn't have been easy for her.
Objective: Talk to Haxara
Haxara is hanging on by a thread, but she insists that she has to see this through. We need to find Ree-Nakal and the last experiment she's hatching to end this once and for all.
Objective: Kill Ree-Nakal
Ree-Nakal is dead along with almost all her experiments. Haxara has found one remaining child that appears to be healthy and docile. I should speak to her about this discovery.
Objective: Talk to Haxara
Haxara begged me not to kill the last of her children and I see no reason to do so. She wants to take the girl back to the Bright-Throat Village. I should head back there as well.
Objective: Return to Bright-Throat Village
The arrival of Haxara and her strange child has stirred up a commotion for the tree-minder. She's called for quiet and invited me to speak with her.
Objective: Talk to Tree-Minder Pavu
Tree-Minder Pavu will defer to my judgment concerning what should be done about Haxara and her child. Iskenaaz and Haxara seem to have more to say on the matter. I could hear them out, or give Pavu my decision based on what I already know.
Objective: Decide Haxara's Fate
Objective Hint: Hear Both Sides of the Argument
☑Finishes quest (One of the below options appears depending on whether you decide that Haxara and her child should stay or be exiled)

I decided that Haxara and her child should remain with the Bright-Throats. They need the care of a peaceful tribe to recover from the trauma they experienced. I should say my goodbyes to Tree-Minder Pavu, she will want to thank me for my help.

Objective: Talk to Tree-Minder Pavu
