Ha! I just bought that house! smile I just "slept" there. I'm in the middle of taking care of the occupants. Wasn't sure if you got to keep it at the end of the quest, but it sounds like you can.

BTW- does anyone just happen to know where I can find an open lock spell for hard and average locks? I only have very easy and easy lock spells. I'm terrible at the lockpick "game".

Tamia, if you are far enough along to do the Daedric quests, try Nocturnal. The reward is a skeleton key!! I was always breaking my last lockpick while deep in a cave or dungeon and was so determined to get that key! bravo Someone here mentioned it a while ago and I never forgot as I have been rotten at lockpicking since the "git go". laugh

Nipomo, try to find someone who sells the Cure Disease spell. If you like going after Vampires, it's a handy thing to have! wave Seems there is some other dread disease I contracted at one point, too.

Tamia, when you finish the quest you can have the house lock stock and basement. I went down to clean it all up recently, thinking I might put in a bar and a pool table, but unfortunately there are some things down there that can't be removed. And I haven't been able to find a carpenter willing to go down there to install a door. Still I suppose a few old dead things and a sacrificial altar shouldn't bother the head of the Assassin's Guild, who has a mouldering cellar for a head office, after all and an evil god for a boss.

If the locks are giving you fits just use the autopick function and save before each try. That will level up your skill just as fast as picking the frustrating traditional way.

Agreed, before I did Nocturne's quest, I just carried 100 lockpicks before any major dungeon crawl and did autopick. Until my skill got into the apprentice range, the tumblers always fell too fast for me.

I have found that the big fuss in the marketplace is indeed Mystic Dawn agents coming out of the woodwork now that I've exposed the Dagon Shrine. It happened in Cheynidal as well, and about 1 minute after a mob killed the agent, a guard came by and said "The body is still warm. The killer must be close" which was funny cause I suspect that he was one of the mob who killed the agent.

I was a bit peeved at the Count of Cheynidal last night. I had just rescued his son and closed the gate outside his city. I went to talk to him about buying a house and what was his disposition toward me like? About 23! Sheesh, what does a girl have to do to impress him? rotfl

Speaking of what a girl has to do to impress people in Oblivion, I really miss the wolf whistles I used to get in Morrowind. Now those were probably directed at my shining armour and robes but still, ya gotta feel good about it, you know? Now people tell me to go brew up some potions, like I was an old hag (oh wait - I am an old hag).

rotfl I remember that, hagatha! I'm playing as a guy this time and was thinking the other day I miss playing as a woman and all the attention I got. Now that I know there's not that much here anyway, I don't feel so bad.

rotfl I completed the Lost Histories Quest, and returned to S'krivva with the book. Then accepted the next quest before realizing I was still wearing my Prison Uniform - and very little in the inventory. So will have to get myself back to the jail and look for my belongings. Anyone any idea where I will find them? Would be kinda nice to wear some armour and have a weapon to use - also want my spells etc back cry

Your stuff theoretically would be in a chest in the prison - but unfortunately the chests "reset" after a certain amount of time. I learned this the hard way when I put all my master level alchemy equipment and ingredients in the Arch-Mage's chest.

I hope your stuff is still there. But if it isn't you can always take your revenge by stealing everything in sight.

I now am a proud property owner of houses in all cities bar Chorrol and Skingrad.

I also recently realised that my profile only has me as owning one horse, I effectively have three. Prior's Paint Horse went home when I bought a black horse. My Black horse is currently at the stable outside of Cheydinhal because I'm riding Shadowmere. All three are perfectly legal for me to ride! It also means that if you're missing a horse, you might want to check the home (or purchase) stable for said animal before you restore an older save game.

Alice, I thought that the guards were meant to return everything but your stolen items? Everything you owned was stolen?

Ah, Pib, I was in sneak mode trying to get Amusei out of the castle without being caught - didn't think about looking for my gear. Did pinch several bottles of wine on the way laugh

Hi all,

This is why I downloaded houses for myself. The stuff I leave in the chests, barrels, cupboards, desk or lectern stays where I left it. It does not disappear on me.

Did you know that if you join the guilds that you always have a place to sleep for free?

I believe the chests in the guilds may respawn because you get equipment for free and the one at the Arch Mage's is for free ingredients once a week when you place one you will get more of the same.

If you are the boss of the Fighters Guild...the chest you have there is for your pay and should not be used for anything else either.

I have yet to look into it and find my pay...hmmm.

Well happydance I may wind up being the lowest level leader in the history of the Mage Guild lol I'm right now standing in front of an altar at the Dark Fissure that I think I need to come back to because it's missing a sign (no heavenly lights) I'm going to advance some days (well nights) and see if I can get something to happen.

I came across some rocks with writing on them (it was red writing I think) Anyway, it said something about Hester something or other - I touched it and wound up glowing for a few minutes - then it went away. Hope I didn't mess up a quest somewhere along the way. I touched it again and it said something about "stones sleep during the day" think

That pretty much is the extent of my progress to date. Still have my hovel errr house at the Waterfront in the Imperial City. I think I'll just keep it - It's just me and I really don't need a bigger place - besides, I hate housework laugh

Syd, I arrived very early at that altar - then advanced time hour by hour. 15 minutes before midnight I was behind a rock where I could see both altar and cave entrance. Watched Worm Anchorite leave cave and come to altar (didn't see much of a light) but the moment the chap reached the altar my game flashed me a sign saying I'd watched the ritual - get back and report. So I scarpered. Really I didn't witness anything of the ritual.

Alice laugh

Syd, those big stones grant you certain things like increased ability and Deadric armour if you touch them at night. The spells cast by the stones last for a little while then wear off - at least the ones I've tried did. I haven't discovered any quest associated with them, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

There are some things that I would never ever find without the SG. Yesterday, I was closing the Chorrol gate. There is a special area you have to cross lava to get to. But if you are willing to take the risk, you can get some extra special equipment - Hatred's Heart and Hatred's Soul. One is a mace, the other a bow. Nicely enchanted too. The bow comes with a few (far too few) enchanted Soul Catching arrows.

To cross lava, I had on my water walking boots, and went into full run/jump mode. Still lost a few points, but not too many. There is absolutely no way I would have gone there if I hadn't read about those goodies!
