Starting the Quest
The Vacant Manor in the Godsreach District isn't that vacant after all. There are three NPCs in the basement. At first you are told to get lost, but speak to Dovor Oren about business and you'll be invited to help out. Apparently, he and his friends are unhappy about the state of things between them and the nobles and want to do something about it. He vaguely mentions the 'tools' used by the noble Soscean and asks you to help get them. When it comes down to it, all they want you to do is kill Soscean and return with his sword and cuirass as proof.
Dovor says that you should be able to find Soscean in his usual bar, presumably the Winged Guar, since that is the only one in the area and, indeed, you'll find him wearing a magical ebony cuirass downstairs. Sometimes he will spawn into one of the storage rooms, so if you cannot see him check there. Unfortunately, he won't respond to any dialogue, so the only option is to kill him (use a Frenzy Humanoid spell or shut yourself inside a storage room with him to avoid the murder charge). Strong Chameleon effects are also an option to avoid a murder charge.
Return to Dovor and give him the sword and cuirass to receive a 5000 gold reward and the option of performing more work for him.
Return and speak to Dovor Oren in the Vacant Manor in the Godsreach District after you murder Soscean for him. Mention that you wish to assist him and he'll tell you to talk with Felvan in the same room. Felvan Ienith is looking for some new equipment and says he would like the robe and axe that Elanande in Godsreach has. He won't give you exact directions to find this woman however. Elanande can be found in the northwest corner of the district by the canal. Like Soscean, she will not talk with you, forcing you to have to kill her to retrieve the items (again, use a Frenzy spell to avoid the murder charge. It is also possible to sneak while being far away and casting a damaging target spell or a ranged weapon to also avoid a murder charge).
Return to Ienith with the items and receive a 1000 gold as a reward.
Murder Bels Uvenim
Return and speak to Dovor Oren in the Vacant Manor in the Godsreach District after you murder Elanande and offer to assist him again. This time it is Olvyne Dobar that you are directed to speak with, standing next to Dovor. Olvyne asks you to kill Bels Uvenim who hangs around the temple and return with his spear and helm. Bels can be found in the northwest side of the Temple and again will not talk to you, forcing his death in the end.
Return to Olvyne with the items and receive a 1000 gold as a reward.
Murder Suldreni Salandas
Return and speak to Dovor Oren in the Vacant Manor in the Godsreach District after you murder Bels Uvenim and offer to assist him again. For this last job you are to murder one Suldreni Salandas and return to him with her amulet and mace. He doesn't mention where to find her, but you can assume that she is nearby like the previous three. This time the victim is found wandering on the west side of the Great Bazaar. Kill her, and loot the corpse.
Return to Dovor with the items, and you will receive a 4000 gold reward.
Stopping the Murders
After killing Elanande, it is possible for you to speak with Felvan Ienith about scared. He will confess that he is unsure whether what they are doing is right. It then becomes possible to have a similar conversation with Olvyne Dobar. If you so choose, you can urge them to turn themselves in to the guards. If you do this, then you can later find them in cells in the jail. Speak with them to receive their thanks for helping them do the right thing. They will also kill Dovor Oren and leave his body in the Manor.
