Find and restore the missing mural pieces
Iraya and Izanji, two siblings in charge of a museum in Riverhold called the House of Histories, have fallen on hard times after a recent theft. I intend to help them solve this theft and return the missing items.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Visit the House of Histories and learn about the theft of sixteen mural fragments.
  2. Travel to the Tomb of the Serpents and recover the Anequina Fragment.
  3. Return to the House of Histories and place the fragment piece into the mural.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Speak with the museum's curators

All over Elsweyr, you will find pamphlets encouraging locals and tourists alike to visit the House of Histories, a museum showcasing relics of Anequina's storied past. The main attraction is the Rithana-Di-Renada, an ancient mural depicting the original sixteen kingdoms. The House of Histories is located on the western side of Riverhold. The mural is in the basement. You will enter the museum to find the curators in the midst of a crisis. Speak with Iraya to find out what's going on.

Apparently, the parts of the mural depicting the kingdoms have been stolen, and the thief left a riddle. Iraya has deduced that the Anequina Fragment is located in the Tomb of the Serpents, a nearby ruin filled with Akaviri dead. She asks you if you would be willing to retrieve it for her, to which you agree. The Tomb of the Serpents is located east of Riverhold. Enter the ruins and begin your search.

The Anequina Fragment is in the northernmost chamber, overlooked by slumbering Akaviri. When you attempt to take it, you will hear a voice beckoning you from nearby. It's none other than Rajhin's Shadow.

Speak with the aspect of the trickster god. He tells you that he stole the pieces of the mural, and challenges you to find the rest of the missing pieces without any outside help. The shadow will then give you a book of riddles to help you find the pieces. You can speak with him further to learn more about him and the task he's given you. Once you're done speaking with the shade, pick up the Anequina Fragment and return to the House of Histories. You must speak with Izanji, who doesn't believe you were approached by Rajhin's Shadow when told. You must then place any fragments you have on hand in the mural. Iraya will arrive not long after. Speak with her to be rewarded for returning the Anequina Fragment to its place on the mural.

Missing Fragments[edit]

The quest ends after the Anequina Fragment has been returned, however fifteen fragments remain missing and can also be returned when found. The book Riddles of the Rithana-di-Renada gives clues as to their location.

This task isn't associated with an actual quest and won't appear in the quest log, however the location of the missing tablets are mentioned here for completeness. For convenience, the order of the fragments below starts from Riverhold and roughly follows a path counter-clockwise circling the zone.
