|Daedric Artifact: Skeleton Key (0003a070)|
The Skeleton Key is a Daedric artifact acquired after killing Mercer Frey. The Skeleton Key is an unbreakable lockpick, making it rather useful to enterprising thieves.
The Skeleton Key also has a secondary, less known function as being used to keep Ebonmere, a well from which luck flows into the world, open. You are tasked with returning the key to Ebonmere in the Twilight Sepulcher to restore luck to the Thieves Guild. Until then, you may retain the key indefinitely for your own use.
