For the estate sale thing to kick in a little, get a quest from one of the collector merchants in the area.
To build a stronghold, you have to belong to one of the Great Houses-for me it was Hlaalu; was advanced up to Father by Mr. Yuck in Vivec, and then went to Balmora and talked about my stronghold.
It goes it stages for a couple of quests-which were a snap-and bingo I've got my stronghold built. Don't know that it's all that great, but it is home and safe.
I'm staying out of the sewers for a while, I am thinking about finishing up the Temple Quest-Row's got me interested in them.
I said no to acting in the play: and no to the bouncer job.
Did a couple of cure potions; I am still just wandering around a little going back and forth.
Oh, I have the quest for the Robot thing also, that's easy, so no hurry.
I like the fact of no Cliff Racers, when going back I realize how much I detest those things. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />
