Nagh

This one is beginning to suspect you don't know where we're going, Kellen.

Kellen

In a way you are correct, Nagh. The scrolls tell me we are on the right path. But as to our destination, well, who knows where a journey will lead?

Nagh

Nagh senses one of your stories coming.

Kellen

(Chuckles) Why not? This is the story of the time the Forgotten Hero went on a most unexpected journey indeed. It began with a visit from an old friend…

Swims-at-Night

Well, well, well. The years have been kind to you. When I heard you were in Skyrim I knew you were just the partner I needed for my latest enterprise.

I was recently approached by a mysterious man who's been hiring adventurers and treasure hunters from across Tamriel.

Swims-at-Night

He wanted me to find a bauble called Barilzar's Mazed Band.

Legend has it, this ring can transport you to the long lost Clockwork City, workshop of the dead tinkerer god, Sotha Sil. And now he thinks he's tracked it…

…right here, to the Rift. I turned him down — didn't trust him. But there must be a fortune in that city.

What do you say you and I find that ring — and steal it right from under the treasure hunters' noses?

Swims-at-Night

We could try following the other treasure hunters. Or we could check in with my old friends in the Thieves' Guild — if anyone knows where to find something valuable, it'll be them.

[The player can choose to go to either Thornwell Farm or the Ragged Flagon next. The order in which they visit these locations does not branch the story.]
