 Detailed Walkthrough
 Quest Offer
Malacath speaks to the player:
Yes, I know someone else who was interested in power. A little panikosa in Oblivion who dreamed of power, who asked me to supply it with the beauty and grace it had always desired. And when I made it beautiful, it fought against me, resisting my will as if I had not made it. Perhaps you are the same. If I made you strong and beautiful, you would respect the gift I gave, would you not?
 Quest Acceptance
Malacath goes on:
I believe you, (player's name). In exchange for the death of the treacherous seducer I once trusted, I will give you the Volendrung, my most prized possession in your world. It will make you most powerful indeed. You will find the loathed creature in (dungeon). Slay her and meet my dear and trusted subject (worshipper's name) in (town). I will tell (him/her) to meet you at the palace there for convenience. I don't think the whole affair should take more than (time limit) days if done as efficiently as it should. Go then into the world and do my bidding, (player's name).
 Quest Decline
Malacath answers furiously:
Witless (player's race), don't you even know enough to lie? Do not waste my time with your pathetic yearnings.
 Quest Object Dead
On the body of the Daedra Seducer you will find a note containing following message:
(Daedra Seducer's name),
Malacath wishes (noble's name) dead. (His/Her) agents have uncovered one too many of our plots. (He/She) must be stopped before all our plans for (region) are ruined. You will find (him/her) in the Palace of (town). Make sure (his/her) death cannot be traced back to us. Once you have carried out the assassination, wait for me in (dungeon). I will bring your reward and your next assignment from Malacath.
You have two choices:
- Travel to the town Malacath mentioned to you and collect your reward from his worshipper.
- Travel to the town were the assassination mentioned in the note took place. In the palace there you will find another noble, who is leading the investigations in this case. Give him/her the note and you will gain +15 reputation with the current region and +7 with its associated factions. Afterwards you can still travel to Malacath's worshipper and collect your reward.
 Quest End
Malacath's worshipper speaks to the player:
So you're (player's name). Malacath described you perfectly. Good work with old (Daedra Seducer's name). She just didn't know how to keep her mouth shut, you know? Anyhow, here's the Volendrung. Not a halfbad smasher. And who knows? You might have to use it on Malacath himself one day. I'm joking ... of course.
