Found naked blue guy! Killed naked blue guy. We found the witch & when he wouldn't go for her deal I sided with her. He attacked & now he's dead. Oops. I've got a save right before this if I should keep him alive. Didn't get that axe, gave me some stinking potions instead. Cheap witch. Is there a "better" resolution to this quest?

Well you could side with him and watch him beat the snoot out of her which is what I did laugh Then loot her body. I think in addition to the axe and the potions I got some kind of staff that I sold off and I gave him the axe - didn't really see a need for it.

Redid naked blue guy & I like the outcome better when I side with him. (that doesn't sound as bad as I think it does, does it? lol )

Anyway, now I'm completely without a clue. I needed money so traveled via mages guild to Ald Ruhn for some fly-by thieving. Got a bunch of "work" all related to one guy who's late on payment to a bunch of merchants. Got all their stuff back, but it was tempting to keep the stuff...worth more than the reward. Wondering if doing the right thing was really the "right" thing.

Went exploring in the Manor district & inside one house found this note regarding a guy imprisoned behind a tapestry. Stole the key & freed him. Had him follow me out but I had to kill many guards/faction members along the way. Was I supposed to do that? I didn't get a quest or anything & I killed about 5 people doing it. I hope none of them are necessary NPC's. frown Should I wait on this part until someone asks me to rescue him? Is he even worthy of rescue? Dumb ox me lets everyone go. HELP!

Oh, I have the boots of blinding speed....are they evil? I don't want to go blind while running fast...splat!

I think there is one NPC you shouldn't kill when you rescue what's his face (this was part of my Redoran House quest). I think it's the first person who starts to attack you as soon as you come out from behind the tapestry. I think I read somewhere that she is part of the main quest so not to kill her. I can check for certain when I get home.

I just ran fast and didn't have to kill anyone - took me a few tries to get out but I did and 'ole what's his face followed me right along as I took him back to his daddy laugh

As to the boots - I have them too but haven't used them yet. I think we need a "don't let me go blind while I wear these suckers" spell, and I haven't found one yet lol

Thanks, Syd. That's what I was afraid of. I should have stuck to my original plan of pilfering & left rescue for later. Will reload an earlier save.

BTW...bought the GOTY edition today just to get the expansion packs. lol Loaded Tribunal only, just for the journal benefits. What a difference! laugh Unfortunately the store didn't have the guide book. <sigh> Should I bother loading Bloodmoon at this point (does it have any benefits NOW) or is it purely for added mayhem? evil

It seems as if an old quest isn't solved. The tax guy from the first town? I don't know how to finish it other than find the guy's wife & give her his ring. Any ideas?

If you find that unique spell wink let me know where it is. I just love shoes.

Yup, you need to return the ring to the lady in the lighthouse and check in with I think it's the guy you first meet when you sign in. He gives you a reward if memory serves.

The only reason to install Bloodmoon is that it's already there I guess. I accidentially wound up there - man, is it pretty - forests, snow, wolves, grizzly bears laugh So now I have unfinished quests from up North also - geeeeez louise. My To Do list is looking pretty darn sad right now lol

Not to worry fellow Morrowind traipser - if I ever find said spell, I'll let you know laugh

"Nighteye" and/or "light" are 2 spells that could counteract the blindness. I had a magic spear with the nighteye enchantment on it. When I carried it around I could wear the boots of blinding speed. I found that spear but can't remember now where. You can probably enchant any item with one of these spells and that should help you. I'm sure one of the mage guilds will have this. That spear came in very handy in some of the dark caves and I saved carrying a lot of torches with it.

lol You can actually USE the torches? Oh my, I've just been wandering in the dark! I'll have to give them a try. I didn't think the light spells were worth using my magicka....I don't have a whole lot being a warrior-type, must save for healing & quick transport.

Rowan, when you equip the spear do you have to cast the light/eye spell associated with it or is it a constant effect? I wonder if one of those "resist magicka" type spells would work with the boots? (although I hope Syd spellmakes one with that ultra-cool name she came up with. wink ) Couldn't you just enchant the boots themselves? Enchanting & spellmaking are still beyond my comprehension.

Syd, thanks for the tip. I did check in with the starting guy, no reward as I decided to let the murderer go, as usual. Had no idea that the lighthouse lady was his wife....what happened to taking your husband's name? lol Of course I'd been afraid to show anyone the ring.....

If you can raise your resist Magaicka to at least 50%+ The Boots of Blinding Speed will not effect your wearing them.
If you're able have an enchantment placed on an article that can hold it and then wear the article(like a ring, amulet-that type of thing)
I had 50% resist magicka naturally so I never had to worry..but if not get something that will.
First buy the spell "Resist Magicka" and then find a pretty something and an enchanter if you cannot do it, and have a lot of money lol

To counteract the blindness you need to have an item that casts resist magicka. what you should do is make a spell that gives 100 % resist magica for 3 seconds. Cast the spell, equip the boots and when it wears off the effects still last. this is an example of a positive bug.

You can also make a night eye spell. this works too if you do not wan to take advantage of a bug. But it will not work as well. There is also an armor you can find that gives you a constant 60 % resist magicka.

Thanks, ladies, I'll try that "positive bug" method.

New questions.... <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

I took a nap & when I awoke an assassin was whalloping me! Spydaddy just stood there & smiled. Nearly killed me! So I took another nap to regain my health & WHAM! TWO of them this time. Sheesh! What's a gal gotta do to get some beauty rest around here? I started to follow the trail afraid to sleep anymore & I believe this is a Tribunal quest. Can anyone verify? I'd rather focus on Morrowind first.

Speaking of which, I can't seem to get several quests cleared up. 1) The tax man. I gave the lighthouse lady the ring & it's still in my journal as incomplete. I'm wondering if I screwed it up by not prosecuting the murderer? ARGH!!!!
2) Escort a slave Hides-His-Foot to a farm. Okaaay, I did. Why is it still showing as active? It even SAYS I did in the journal. Hmph!
3) Find some madman on a hill close to Suran. I've been all over the Arcadian Isles but I didn't see any blantant madman anywhere. Just a bunch of poor slaves that I can't free without keys that I can't find. I'm afraid to kill anyone for fear they are a needed NPC for other quests. I'm sure someone's got keys in their pockets. (not that freeing the slaves is a quest, I just feel like I should rolleyes )

HELP!!!!

Haven't a clue, NGP. duh My game just crashes randomly, usually as I step toward a bed with plans to save after my nap. If you have a save before that you might try to continue from there if you think you made a booboo. Lord knows I made plenty & had to reload. rolleyes

Did you try the options menu? Lowering resolution, disabling anti-aliasing, etc? Might help. If you're still having tech problems I suggest posting on the Glitches & Bugs board here at GB. Also if you don't have the expansion packs loaded I know there's a patch needed for the game that might or might not help. Nothing ruins a game faster than sluggeshness or crashes, good luck!

You wouldn't happen to know how to answer any of my above questions, wouldja? :kiss:

Well as soon as I figure out how to enchant something I will - so far I have no clue how to do it.

Jen when you killed the assassins did you take their armor? It's worth a fortune if you sell it. Same thing happened to me with them only I came out of a cave and wham - they hit me from behind (the cowards).

I don't know if they are part of Tribunal or not - I'm just ignoring them for now (well, except for killing them and taking their armor).

Can't remember where I found keys to free the slaves - found some in crates, on the ground etc.

I have at least one quest I can't clear and that's cause I lost the guy frown That is the one where you escort someone to the Koal Caves - I have no idea where he went - I got to the cave but he didn't.

I think to clear the tax collector quest you have to turn in the murderer -

The assassins stop attacking after a while, but I forget what triggers them to stop. Their armour is great and I wore it for a while until I found something better. I was a light armoured character.

The "madman" is called Umbra and this is how you can find him: Go to the top of the stairs which are just south of Suran's northern entrance. From there levitate due east over the mountain. Umbra should be standing there at the end of a long foyada.

Not all slaves can be freed. But I read that if you free 30 slaves the game will reward you. I don't remember what the reward was, maybe an increase of reputation.

Thanks, Row. Found him but I took the long way around, being scared of levitating. He's one tough cookie & I'm no match right now. Guess I'll be keeping that quest active for awhile. But at least I know where he is!

Did clear up the Tax Man quest! laugh I killed the murderer after taunting him & checked back in with the head census guy & got my reward. Whoo! I don't care so much about the $250 reward as I do about clearing it up. 2 out of 3 problems solved ain't bad.

I'd like to clear the Hides-His-Foot quest up. When I got him to the correct farm he told me of a book in the basement of the manor in which he was a slave. I'm wondering if I need to retrieve the book in order for the quest to clear? lol Literally. He was wedged in a crevice between some stairs & rocks. The only way out would be to jump & no matter what I did he'd only run full-on into the stairs or rocks. I finally gave up & reloaded being careful to check behind me periodically to make sure he was keeping up & taking paths I knew he could handle. If your acrobatics/athletics skill is high you might be able to climb a steep incline & he/she can't. I bet your guy met a similar fate.

Hi folks
The bad boys in black will stop attacking after you go talk to the guy in Ebonheart..can't remember his name, Captain somebody..You'll find him in the inner courtyard near some stairs and a well.
Syd,
To enchant something several things are needed:
1. an item to enchant
2. a soul to use for the enchantment(golden saint is the best-but you can use others for smaller enchantments)
3. Need to have the spell you wish to use(ex. resist magicka)
4. I recommend instead of you enchanting use an enchantress. They can be found in the Mage Guilds
5. Money to pay
Hope that helps a little

You can enchant any item that can hold the soul-you need the soul gems to capture the soul.

For a good view of these gems-go to the Balmora Mage guild go upstairs and look at the desk.
Steal if you can the gems...but do not ask the enchantress from there to ever enchant anything for you..she'll attack and you're booted out of there.

Always save first..

Jen, I don't remember the Hides-His-Foot quest. But there is a Hides-His-Eyes quest which is different from what you describe.

However, something that might relate is to see Jobasha in his rare book store in the Foreign Quarter of Vivec after you have freed 5 slaves. Trigger a conversation about Twin Lamps but he must have a disposition of 70 or higher. He is supposed to give you some skill books as a reward for freeing the slaves. Then talk to a freed slave about "go free". I think Jobasha gives you some more skill books after freeing 30 slaves.

Yep, the Hides-His-Eyes quest I've finished. This one is different. Hides-His-Foot was a slave from that BIG manor in the arcadian isles (I think Orvas Dren?). It's almost a mini-town. The rest of the slaves I freed went off on their own, but he was too old & asked me to escort him to Ster-something's farm. I did & when we got there he told me of some notes in the manor basement that would help to "persuade" Orvas Dren. Got 'em but the quest is still showing active. duh I give up, perhaps the solve will come later....Dren's supposed to be the Cammona Tong kingpin. Thanks for the tip on the bookstore. I'll head over there next. All this time playing & I didn't free one slave today, but I'm sure I've freed at least 5 awhile back. Can't find the keys! Even in the dark elves pockets & rooms. I saved, then killed just to see if they had them. Then reloaded so they're alive again. No luck. Raided a few tombs/caves tho! smile

How do you open locked things that are high level, like 80-100? Can't pick 'em. Ready-made spells aren't high enough. Do I need to make a spell or is it a matter of upping my security level? I can open up to 80 by picking now.

Do this to sell to Creeper:

He has 5000 units of money. So buy some things from him so that he has enough money to buy the armour you want to sell him. When he has enough money (his own + what you gave him) then sell him the armour. When that is done, have a sleep somewhere to make it the next day. Then Creeper will have more money again. Then you can sell him back the items you bought from him that you didn't want. Whenever you have items that are more than 5000 you will have to go through this procedure. If you have a lot of stuff this may take some time, but it is the best way to make money in the long run. Another hint: when buying from Creeper try to buy items that are 5000 or less. It is much easier to sell them back.

Good luck. wave

Here is how it works: he has 5000 and you want to sell him an item worth 17000 - you buy several smaller items from him that add up to 12000 (make sure each item you buy is worth 5000 or less)-> then his 5000 + your 12000 makes him have 17000. Sell him the armour for the 17000 back. He then has 0. Sleep so you have the next day. Creeper will have 5000 again. Sell him back some of the items you bought from him. When the 5000 is used up, sleep some more. Creeper will another 5000. Sell him back some more stuff. Keep doing this until you have sold back all the stuff you bought from him and didn't want. In the end you will have profitted.

I am just doing the house, guild and shrine things, want to be an imperial soldier but don't know how . Well that is more than 1 question hahahaha.
