The Witchmother's Bargain[edit]

Summoning a witchmother

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.
