[edit] The Alchemist that lived here is dead.

I found a corpse in the wilderness - I believe to the east of the shack - of a character named "Alchemist" — Unsigned comment by 142.68.192.115 (talk) at 14:47 on 25 November 2011

If you read his journal he talks about going out to study mushrooms. Upstream from Evergreen Grove you will find an alchemist's camp with another journal mentioning the mushrooms and that he intends to follow the river downstream to see what effect the nirnroots are having on the fauna down there. You will find the body of this alchemist on a slab in the middle of the pool in Evergreen Grove. — Unsigned comment by RumblePen (talkcontribs) at 03:17 on 27 November 2011
Hmm, Evergreen Grove (northwest of Falkreath) is quite a ways west of Helgen and Riverwood - which is to say, it's very far west of the Alchemist's Shack. Across a mountain range even. But unless we find any other dead alchemists closer to the Shack, I guess that's what happened. I suppose the mushroom writings clinch it. -RedKnight 01:26, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
Actually I am quite interested to explore where this alchemist has gone. Would you mind adding more details to the page for how to find this alchemist? --Joshua.yathin.yu 16:41, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
I am quite certain that they Alchemists shack (riften area) and the Alchemists camp (N of Falkreath) area are related, and the dead Alchemist in Evergreen grove is in fact the NPC who lived in the shack, the journels read similiarly, and I just get the feeling the two locations are related. It would be almost too coincidental if they weren't related. — Unsigned comment by Esmok Kronik (talkcontribs) at 04:46 on 5 June 2012

[edit] Storage?

The article seems to contradict itself - first it says that the end table and the barrel inbetween the closets are safe, then it says the barrel inside does respawn. Which is the correct one? 89.189.38.226 11:39, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

I can confirm what is and what is not respawnable in the shack. You can do it yourself by placing stuff and then fast traveling to somewhere else. Use the 'set timescale to 99999' command to make a day pass every second or so. (doing so outside is pretty freaky) Wait the 40 days, set timescale back to 20 (which is normal), and travel back to the house.

Anyway, I can confirm that everything you find in and near the house resets to how you found it every 40 days, with the exception of the Alchemist's Journal found on the end table, and the end table its self. Items placed on the shelves will be heaped up in the middle of the house, but things in the end table are safe. 174.56.54.188 05:38, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Duplicate Moved Items?

The article states that "if you move items from there spot or take them they will respawn in their original spot however the moved item will not disappear meaning you can duplicate the original items." Can anyone confirm that? Usually, items that are moved around will just return to their original location when a cell respawns. Phaid 08:28, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

I think you have to "take" the item, then drop it.--Amsuko 20:30, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Changes Made: Added "Notable Items" with "Butterfly in a Jar"

As per wiki guidlines, I am explaining my edit: Another location with a "Bug in a Jar" listed it in a "Notable Items" section. I just used the same format to add Butterfly in a Jar. Does anyone know what the runes on the lid say? (underside of lid) --Amsuko 20:41, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

You only have to explain an edit on a talk page if it's a controversial change or otherwise can't be explained within the space for the edit summary. As for your question, assuming it's in Draconic, try asking one of these people. They'll probably be able to help. Robin Hoodtalk 21:21, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
It looked more like nordic runes to me, something alike to Elder Futhark, but I couldn't make out what it says. --Alfwyn 21:24, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I had already searched the wiki for a page about runes/languages but could only find a page on the Dragon Alphabet, which didn't match. I agree it looks like Nordic runes, but only 1 or 2 of the letters match. Looks like an angular "PIg" or "6I4" based on which way is "up." But that would be "giant/god-ice-?" or "joy-ice-?", neither of which make sense. --Amsuko 21:49, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
