One achievement is related to this quest:
- There is a table in chapter IV that has the four skill books; the Gold Ribbon of Merit, Advances in Lockpicking, Beggar, and The rear guard, which train archery, lockpicking, pickpocket and light armor, respectively.
- Chapter V has two configurations, one is straight to the reward book while sometimes the hallway curves towards either the left or the right to a Lurker Guardian. This is why you may see Scryes that are apparently not accessible in this part of Apocrypha.
- You can change the reward at any time by traveling to Solstheim and re-reading the book. This will transport you to Apocrypha near the reward location and you can select a different one.
