The Walking Nightmare is terrorizing the Telvanni Peninsula, and most recently killed a scholar researching it.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Receive instructions from Ordinator Nelyn.
  2. Defeat the Walking Nightmare.
  3. Gather three Researcher's Notes.
  4. Return to Ordinator Nelyn.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Speak with Ordinator Nelyn in Necrom to begin the quest:

"One of our scholars was tracking an ancient creature—the Walking Nightmare—in hopes of driving it from these lands. Unfortunately, he got too close and the beast killed him. We need to recover this scholar's notes."
What is a Walking Nightmare?
"It is a Daedric Prince's dreams made manifest, which escaped into our world.
Can you defeat this creature and recover the scholar's research notes? You may need to bring others to help, but you'll be well-compensated for your efforts."
I'll deal with the Walking Nightmare and recover any research notes I can find.

You then need to head to Nightmare Den and defeat the Walking Nightmare. Once this is done, gather three Researcher's Notes from around the area.

After that, return to Ordinator Nelyn.

The Walking Nightmare has been taken care of, and I collected the research notes.
"That's what I was hoping to hear. It's a pity that young Favel didn't survive, but these notes should come in handy.
The Ordinators appreciate your assistance. We'll have other jobs for you in the future."

* Any text displayed in angle brackets (e.g., <Alias=LocationHold>) is dynamically set by the game and will be filled in with the appropriate word(s) when seen in game.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in any order. Some stages may therefore repeat objectives seen in other stages.
