Speak to Gerent Saervild Steel-Wind to start the quest. He tells you that the Dominion has set up camp nearby, and that they're possibly interested in the Argonian relics that are located at Bogmother. He wants you to retrieve the relics so the Dominion can't take them. Whatever their interest in these relics is, it can't be good. Saervild wishes to bring them to Stormhold so the vicecanons can protect them.
You need to gather three relics from the reliquaries of Bogmother. The relics are small statues that resemble highly-stylized depictions of Argonians. Once you've got them, Njorlund Steel-Wind will ask you what you're doing. Apparently, Njorlund and his father were asked to protect the relics, not remove them. Njorlund needs you to find the tree-minders of Bogmother at their camp while he talks to his father. They should know what to do with the relics. Head for the camp. You'll arrive to find it empty; the tree-minders seem to have left behind a lit campfire and a brief journal entry about current events. Njorlund will show up soon after you investigate the camp.
Now that the relics have been removed from their reliquaries, the dreugh that inhabit the area have become very aggressive. This isn't a good sign. He takes the relics from you and goes off to find his father while you search for the tree-minders. Dreugh keep their prey encased in mud piles, so you may be able to find the tree-minders near them. You will need to locate and search Dreugh mud piles until you find the tree-minder. Each pile is a collection of mud spires, the tallest of which is roughly the size of a person. You'll find all but one of the tree-minders dead. Tree-Minder Raleetal wishes to speak with you back at her camp, since it's obviously not safe to be sticking around the dreugh's feeding grounds. When you arrive, you'll find Njorlund Steel-Wind dead on the floor and the relics missing.
Raleetal realizes that Gerent Saervild's weapon is on the ground near Njorlund's corpse. He must have killed his own son and betrayed the Pact. You left the relics with Njorlund, and they're not here. They could already be in enemy hands. Saervild must have taken the relics to the Dominion camp at the bog's edge. Raleetal can't do much to help, but she can turn the dreugh on the Dominion. She needs something from the Dominion camp that is laden with an enemy soldier's scent. If you sneak into the Dominion camp, you'll find a Dominion Bedroll. Take the bedroll and meet Tree-Minder Raleetal at the ruins. She tells you to place the bedroll in the reliquary. Once you've done so, stand by and wait for the ritual to complete. A number of dreugh will approach, but they are not hostile. Once they disperse, speak to Tree-Minder Raleetal again.
She tells you that the dreugh have turned on the Dominion, and that the relics are likely near Mudshallow Cave, located at the Dominion camp you took the bedroll used in the ritual from. The dreugh won't attack you, so you can slip past the soldiers at the camp as the dreugh go to town on them.
Sneak or fight your way into the Dominion camp, and enter Mudshallow Cave. Inside, you'll find some Dominion infantry and a book revealing that "Saervild" is an impostor—a skin-stealer able to assume the identity of any dead body. The impostor, still disguised, is at the end of the cavern. Kill him, and then locate and take the Sack of Relics. Fight your way back outside and speak to Tree-Minder Raleetal, who isn't far, to complete the quest.
