Quest Stages[edit]

Old Wounds
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I should travel to Russafeld and speak with the Elves investigating this murder.
Objective: Talk to Tarnamir
Latest start I should talk to High Examiner Lorne.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
Lorne indicated that I should search for more clues in the grape-fields surrounding the murder scene. I should have a look around.
Objective: Search the Fields

Optional Steps: A few bystanders are lingering nearby. Perhaps I should speak to them. They might be able to provide me with useful information if they witnessed a crime.

Optional Step: Question Bystanders
I discovered the body of a young Wood Elf in the fields, not far from the original murder scene. I should blow the whistle Lorne gave me to summon her and Soravil.
Objective: Use the Whistle
The young Wood Elf's dress is spattered with blood, but I found no lacerations on her body. It's possible that she injured her assailant. I should search for more clues.
Objective: Search the Vineyard for Clues
I found a bloody sack. I should see if it contains any vital evidence.
Objective: Search the Suspicious Sack
I found a bloody sickle in the discarded sack. I should take it back to Lorne and tell her all that I've seen.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
Lorne asked me to search Halimorion's villa. She suspects that we might find evidence there that could give us insight into the murderer's motive.
Objective: Search Halimorion's Villa
I found an unsent letter in Halimorion's villa that might implicate the nearby Bosmer in his murder. I should bring this information to Lorne.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
Evidence of bad-blood between Halimorion and the nearby Wood Elves keep piling up. Lorne wants me to investigate the Wood Elf cottage. I'll meet her partner, Soravil, there.
Objective: Investigate the Wood Elf Cottage

Optional Steps: I could talk to Soravil to get some insight on what exactly we hope to find.

Optional Step: Talk to Soravil
It seems like the clan chief's wife might know something. I should speak to her.
Objective: Talk to Elsoreth
It sounds like Elsoreth's son might be involved in the murders in one way or another. I should check his room.
Objective: Search Celan's Room
I found Celan's journal tucked under his bed. It may contain some useful clues. I should examine it.
Objective: Examine Celan's Journal
Celan's journal contains a confession that he killed the vintner, Halimorion. It looks like he fled to a nearby shrine to pray for forgiveness. I should tell Soravil about this.
Objective: Talk to Soravil
Together with Soravil, I need to search the Red Temple for Celan and bring him to justice.
Objective: Search the Red Temple
Soravil and I split up to cover more ground. I should keep looking for Celan.
Objective: Search for Celan
I found Celan, but the Ghost of the Green shot him with an arrow. He likely won't survive, but perhaps I can get some information from him before he dies.
Objective: Talk to Celan
Celan's wound proved fatal. The arrow that killed Celan resembles the one that killed Halimorion. I should take it. It might prove to be a useful clue.
Objective: Take the Arrow That Killed Celan
I should try to find Soravil before I leave the shrine.
Objective: Talk to Soravil
I should take the arrow that killed Celan back to Lorne. Perhaps she can use her alchemical prowess to glean something from it.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
The blood sample was not a match for the bloody weapon found near Farril's body. Lorne believes this new Ghost of the Green killed her, but the trail is growing cold. She believes her friend Tarnamir can help us. I need to follow her to his manor.
Objective: Go to Tarnamir's Manor
Someone ransacked the manor before we got here. I should examine the scene.
Objective: Search the Area
It appears that the Ghost of the Green arrived before us and killed Tarnamir. I should talk to Lorne.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
Lorne chose to use a forbidden spell to learn the truth of these murders. I should stand back and observe.
Objective: Observe Lorne's Spell
Lorne used a highly restricted spell to witness the last moments of the Ghost's victims' lives. It seems to be troubling her greatly that she resorted to using it. I should speak with her.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
Lorne's spell revealed that Soravil engineered all the murders in Russafeld. He wants Lorne to confront him in the Red Temple catacombs. I should accompany her there.
Objective: Enter the Red Temple
I need to find Soravil before he escapes. He must be somewhere in the depths of the Red Temple.
Objective: Pursue Soravil
I found Soravil in the depths of the Red Temple. There's nowhere left for him to run. It's obvious he won't allow himself to be arrested, so I have no choice but to end this by force.
Objective: Kill Soravil
I defeated Soravil. I should return to Lorne to see if she's all right and inform her that Soravil is dealt with.
Objective: Talk to Lorne
☑Finishes quest With Soravil defeated, all that remains is to tell Celan's mother what happened to her son. I should go back to town to deliver the bad news.
Objective: Talk to Elsoreth
