  • Greetings:
    • "Greetings. I am Torasa Aram, Curator of the Mournhold Museum of Artifacts."
    • "Welcome back to the Museum, %PCName. Are you here to look, or did you wish to sell something?"

  • Museum of Artifacts:
    • "The Museum is privately funded, and is an effort to collect and display many of the artifacts from this part of the world. Should you want to sell something you feel the Museum will be interested in, bring the item here and we can assess its value. Be warned, however, that theft is a serious matter, and likely to equal a death warrant for any foolish enough to attempt it."
    • "The Museum is always interested in expanding its collection; do you wish to sell something? I must advise you, however, that all transactions are final. This is not a pawn shop; you may not come back and reclaim artifacts when you feel like it. I can tell you that the Museum is prepared to offer fifty percent of the value of any artifact, up to 30000 gold; I believe you'll find this is a more profitable offer than any other that will be made to you."
  • sell something: "The museum is interested in purchasing unique artifacts from all over Morrowind. If you have anything we might have an interest in, we can discuss the specifics. I can tell you up front that the Museum is willing to offer half the total value of any artifact sold, up to 30000 gold. We do have a limited budget, you see."
  • Stendarr's Hammer: "Rumor has it the God of Justice himself wielded this hammer. I am inclined to believe it, as none less than a god could ever hope to raise the thing, let alone swing it. It took four men just to lift it onto the podium for display..."

  • Eleidon's Ward:
    • "What a wonderful shield that is! Are you interested in selling it to the museum? I can offer you 30000 gold for it."
      • Sell the item.: "This will make a wonderful addition to our collection, I'm sure."
      • Keep the item.: "I'm sorry to hear that. Perhaps you'll change your mind."
    • "Yes, thank you for allowing us to add it to our collection."
    • "What? How is it that you have this? This was part of the museum's collection! GUARDS!"
  • Warlock's Ring:
    • "I do not wish to know what you must have been through to acquire this ring. If it has outlived its usefulness to you, perhaps you would be willing to sell it to the museum? If so, I can give you 11000 gold in exchange."
      • Sell the item.: "Unless Syrabane himself comes to collect the ring, it will retain a place in our collection for a long time to come. Thank you, %PCName."
      • Keep the item.: "I'm sorry to hear that. Perhaps you'll change your mind."
    • "Yes, thank you for allowing us to add it to our collection."
    • "What? How is it that you have this? This was part of the museum's collection! GUARDS!"
  • Mace of Slurring:
    • "Yes, it's a rather…odd piece. From what I've gathered, it was crafted near the end of the Second Age by Kyanka, a slightly deranged Altmer weaponsmith and enchanter. He had a rather warped sense of humor, and apparently delighted at the thought of reducing opponents to a gibbering mess before crushing them to death. The mace has, admittedly, seen little use. Do you wish to part with it? I can offer you 10000 gold for it."
      • Sell the item.: "Thank you, %PCName. It will take up a, err, special place in our museum. Somewhere upstairs, perhaps. Somewhere dark, as well."
      • Keep the item.: "As you wish, %PCName. Be careful you are not accidentally struck with it, lest we be unable to hold a conversation in the future."
    • "Yes, thank you for allowing us to add it to our collection."
    • "What? How is it that you have this? This was part of the museum's collection! GUARDS!"

If you offer to sell the item without having it in your inventory:

  • "You don't have the [artifact] with you? Well, bring it in and we can settle the deal."

Quest-Related Events[edit]

Barilzar's Mazed Band[edit]

If you speak to Barenziah about Barilzar's Mazed Band, she'll refer you to Torasa Aram, who explains some of the stories surrounding the artifact and its maker. This results in a journal update.

  • Barilzar's Mazed Band: "The Mazed Band may actually be no more than a legend, though there is no doubt of Barilzar's existence, or his power. It has been said that the Mazed Band was able to open rifts in time and space...that it could even open the gates of Oblivion. It's been said that it would take one of divine birth to wield the ring. Some speculate that that was how Barilzar himself met his end. Of course, this is all conjecture. No one really knows what happened to the man or the Band. All of that was lost centuries ago."

After finding the ring and giving it to Almalexia, you can ask about the topic again.

  • Barilzar's Mazed Band: "I understand that you've found this thing of legend and brought it to the goddess."

The Blade of Nerevar[edit]

While Torasa Aram can't positively say she's seen a piece of Nerevar's blade, she does believe she has a possible lead. She won't part with it for free, though.

  • pieces of the blade: "The pieces of the Blade of Nerevar here in Mournhold? Now there's something I'd like to get my hands on for the Museum. I can't say that I have seen any that I know of, but I do have one piece from roughly the same time, and it seems to be of Dwemer construction."
  • one piece: "I don't even have it on display, because I haven't been able to positively identify it yet. It's a shield of Dwemer make, but not traditional in any sense of the word. The pieces of it just don't seem to match, and I've wondered if it isn't some sort of a fake. I suppose I might be able to part with it, but I'll need some compensation."
  • compensation:
    • "I'm always looking for new pieces for the Museum of Artifacts. Unique items, armor and weapons of lore--you know the stuff. If you would be willing to donate a couple to the Museum, I'd be willing to part with the shield."
    • "Bring me a couple quality pieces, and I'll be able to help you, friend."

Once you've donated two artifacts to her museum, she happily hands over the strange shield. If you try to ask her more about it, she suggests taking it to someone more knowledgeable.

  • compensation:
    • "You've already been quite a friend to the Museum. I'll give you the piece. I'm classifying it as a Dwemer Battle Shield. As I said, I'm not sure what to make of it. The spike attached to the front of the shield seems to be loose, but a competent smith can probably take care of that for you. Good luck to you, and if you're able to recreate the Blade of Nerevar, I'd love to see the finished product."
    • "The Museum has been compensated quite well. Thank you for your donations."
  • Dwemer Battle Shield: "Well, I don't know what else to call it. You should probably have a smith look at it, though."
