The Witchmother's Bargain
When you use the Crow Caller to start the quest, Witchmother Olyve will appear in a cloud of ravens and exclaim, "A supplicant, hungry for power? Come, reaper. Come closer." Approach and she will say:
- "The death you've caused lingers about you. What a pleasant scent!
- But last year's harvest won't feed this year's brood. I'll need something fresh to bestow my boon."
- Your boon? What boon?
- "A witchmother's brew, to heighten the reek of death! All for a handful of reagents.
- A pumpkin to serve as a base. Guts torn from squealing critters to add body."
- So you want a pumpkin and some guts. Anything else?
- "Tamriel is littered with dangerous delves. The strongest creatures within are the wheat amidst the chaff.
- Harvest them. Their essence will linger about you and add just the right flavor to my brew."
- All right. I'll bring you your reagents.
If you try to speak to her again, she will repeat:
- "Bring what I desire to earn your brew. Harvest the strongest creature in any delve for its exquisite flavor!
- Also guts. And a pumpkin. Almost as important."
Once you have all three ingredients, she will appear at Olyve's Brewery. As you deliver the ingredients, she will say, "The reaper returns with the harvest!"
- I brought you what you wanted.
- "Yes, the scent of death preceded you. These will do nicely ... so very nicely ..."
- Don't forget our bargain.
Olyve will then mix her cauldron, saying, "Now, reaper? Behold, the true bounty of your harvest." and "Drink deeply!" Speak to her again to finish the quest:
- "A fine feast, fit for kings and tyrants alike!
- Are you not eager to taste, dear reaper?"
- I'm not so certain.
- "You came this far, did you not? Drink from the cauldron. Feel the witchmother's brew course through you!
- Do not delay, reaper. The harvest lasts only so long."
She will disappear in a cloud of ravens after you accept your reward.
- Witchmother Olyve has been mentioned in the Impresario's seasonal dialogue: "Met the Witchmother? Wonderful person. Very… giving."
