Morrowind:The Skeleton Key
|Artifact: The Skeleton Key (skeleton_key)|
The Skeleton Key is a high quality lockpick with 50 uses which should open every door in the game, with the exception of blocked doors and certain quest specific doors.
It can be obtained by a high ranking quest with the Thieves Guild Master Thief, Gentleman Jim Stacey in Vivec, in the Foreign Quarter Canalworks. See the Kill Hard-Heart quest for more information. If you are not a member of the Thieves Guild you may also acquire the key by killing Jim Stacey, though you cannot get it by pickpocketing him.
