 Detailed Walkthrough
 Quest Offer
Hmmph. You're not a guild member. I really shouldn't give out jobs to non-members. However, I have something that I need done that I don't really want anyone else in the guild to find out about. If you do this for me for free, I'll spread it around that you are our kind of (player's race). What do you say (player's first name)?
 Quest Acceptance
Questgiver goes on:
My name is (questgiver's name). There is an ancient text supposedly hidden in (dungeon). Bring it back to me within (time limit) days and I'll consider the job done.
 Quest Decline
Go away. You bother me.
 Quest Object
This quest is yet another dungeon crawl. Travel to the dungeon the questgiver told you and find the scroll within. Once you have found it, pick it up and you will get a notification. But be warned, reading the scroll will summon an Ice Atronach which will attack you. So better keep your eyes off the scroll, however reading it has no negative influence on the outcome of the quest. Following invocation is written on the scroll:
Zephrim alga n' nagog. Carti
alga n' belyl. Azuth Zephrim ne'
nagog. Partik aloy partik frae i
eyominathraq n' toyl. Berik azuth
n' nagog. Charlaq gimle n' maluk
Return the scroll to the questgiver in time and he will thank you for your services.
 Quest End
When you bring the scroll to the questgiver in time he says:
Excellent. I remembered to warn you not to read this, didn't I? Could be quite dangerous if you pronounced "nagog" with the hard g, as laymen are apt. Well, thanks for your help, (player's name). Keep this up and we'll consider you for membership in the Mages Guild.
