TES1 Arena: The Oghma Infinium


Released In:

Description

The Oghma Infinium is a tome of knowledge written by the Ageless One, the wizard-sage Xarses. All who read the Infinium are filled with the energy of the artifact which can be manipulated to raise one's abilities to near demi-god proportions. Once used, legend has it, the Infinium will disappear from its wielder.

Rumors

Well, there is a interesting little story I heard a few minutes ago from some chap in a tavern just [direction] of here called the [tavern name]. He said there was this book of incredible power called the Oglmethlum, uh... the Utherlzninium... the Uglonmth... the Oghma Infinium, that's it. Anyhow, he knows how to get to this book, but he wants some gold in return.

Ever heard of Xarses, the sorceror who created the tome, the Oghma Infinium? Well, there's a guy in the [tavern name], just [direction] of here, who swears he knows someone who knew the great, great granduncle of this maid who used to clean up for Xarses' sister-in-law, and he says he knows how to find the Infinium. But he's going to want gold to talk.

Some guy at the [tavern name] was telling anyone who'd listen that he knows how to get this book, the Oghma Infinium, that supposedly will make you twice the [race] you are now. If you're interested, he's probably still there, just [direction] of here. Personally, I think he was just drunk.

Rather a strange thing for someone to ask about. The Oghma Infinium does not roll of one's tongue accidentally. Perhaps you have heard one of the [city name] folk mention [Name] - that's me. I do know how to find the Tome of Power, only occasionally seen since Xarses' death centuries ago. I regret the necessity of asking [amount] gold for my information. You do agree it's a reasonable request for such a powerful relic?

My name is [Name]. Sorry for interrupting, but you mentioned the Oghma Infinium, and I have information that could lead to its recovery. You know knowledge doesn't come without its price. Mine is [amount] gold pieces. Are you willing to go on?

Did I hear correctly? You're looking for the Tome of Power, the Librum of Knowledge, the Oghma Infinium of Xarses itself? I, [Name], admire ambition, so I will tell you exactly how you can get the Infinium for a mere [amount] gold. Agreed?

Tavern Encounters

"Rather a strange thing for someone to ask about," a young man of aristocratic bearing joins you at the bar. "The Oghma Infinium does not roll off one's tongue accidentally. Perhaps you have heard one of the [city name] folk mention [Name] - that's me. I do know how to find the Tome of Power, only occasionally seen since Xarses' death centuries ago. I regret the necessity of asking [amount] gold for my information. You do agree it's a reasonable request for such a powerful relic?"

A man sits next to you at the bar. The innkeeper looks at him suspiciously and moves to his other customers. "My name is [Name]. Sorry for interrupting," he says, his voice like a blade sliding from its sheath. "But you mentioned the Oghma Infinium, and I have information that could lead to its recovery. You know knowledge doesn't come without its price. Mine is [amount] gold pieces. Are you willing to go on?"

The moment you mentioned the Oghma Infinium, you are joined by a man you did not even notice in the tavern before. He immediately starts his sell with a friendly smile. "Did I hear correctly? You're looking for the Tome of Power, the Librum of Knowledge, the Oghma Infinium of Xarses itself? I, [Name], admire ambition, so I will tell you exactly how you can get the Infinium for a mere [amount] gold. Agreed?"

Location

"Excellent. In the province of Skyrim lies an ancient tomb. I found it quite by accident while escaping Reavers of the frozen wastes who sought to enslave me. Falling into this forsaken place I found tablets and scrolls which all pointed to the location of the Oghma Infinium, said to increase the reader's innate attributes to god-like proportions. I have no need of such attention, for I would rather be rich and anonymous. I have however inscribed the location of that tomb onto your map of the continent. It's called the [dungeon name]. Journey there and you can recover those maps for yourself. They will show you where the Oghma Infinium now lies. Be warned, these things of power seldom grant their gifts without a price. The Infinium has appeared many times through the ages. I wish you luck on recovering it as it appears now..."
