 Quick Walkthrough
- Speak to Gaenor in the Temple Courtyard.
- He will ask you for 50, 100, 1000, 10,000, and 1,000,000 gold in turn.
- Refuse or pay (it won't change the outcome).
- Wait for two days and return to the courtyard.
- Kill the now hostile Gaenor.
Speak with Gaenor in the Temple Courtyard about the small favor he wishes to ask of you. He tells you a story of how he is down on his luck and wants you to give him 50 gold. Give him the 50 and he'll now ask for 100. 100 leads to 1000, to 10000, to one million. If you attempt to give the gold and you don't have enough he will get very upset and refuse to speak to you further. If you refuse to give him the gold it will take some convincing to make him realize that you won't give him anything, and again he'll refuse to speak with you. Similarly, if you do actually offer to give him the one million he eventually asks for, he'll refuse to speak with you, saying that no one could possibly have that much cash.
After you speak with him, Gaenor will leave for two days and return wearing a complete set of ebony armor and Gaenor's Amulet. He will then attack you on sight. He is one of the toughest opponents in the game due to his armor and abilities, including his very high (~85%) Reflect and Resist Magicka, constant health regeneration, high skills, Strength, and incredibly high Luck.
