The Big Bad WerewolfEdit

Clavicus Vile speaks to you:

"My needs are rather modest, but my offer, I think you will agree, is altruistism [sic] and generosity indissoluble. In return for The Masque of Clavicus, an artifact of great power, I only ask that you exterminate a nasty little bit of fur that has been preying on some of my friends who live near (dungeon). Lupines are generally quite friendly with me and my associates, but this one ... well, kids will be kids. Do we understand one another?"


Clavicus Vile goes on:

"Ah, recognize a good deal, do you? You will find the lupine menace somewhere in a place called (dungeon). Unfortunately, time is not our friend in this matter. For reasons too dull to discuss, I need the oaf dead in (time limit) days. After you have murdered the creature, meet my friend at (building) in (town). Just look for a (worshipper's description). Nice doing business with you, (player's name). I'm sure we'll meet again."


Clavicus Vile yells, disgusted:

"Why, you nauseating insect. You poison the air with your thickwitted insolence. How dare you summon forth the greatest of the Princes of Oblivion and refuse the simplest request I could possibly propose? In return for water, I offer you wine and you spit both in my face. I will not forget this, (player's name)."

Lupine ExterminationEdit

Travel to the dungeon Clavicus Vile named and enter it. Once inside, find and kill the werewolf. There may be more than one werewolf inside the dungeon, but you must slay the specified target to successfully complete the quest. Once you have slain the target creature a message appears:

You have slain the werewolf, as ordered by Clavicus Vile.

Once the creature is dead, meet Clavicus Vile's worshipper in the town and building the Daedra Prince named to receive your reward.


If you speak to the worshipper before killing the werewolf, you will be denied the artifact:

"Listen, kid. I don't know how much business you've done with Clavicus Vile before, but I'll tell you this -- he don't like anything done halfway. I know that werewolf ain't dead, and if you think you can fool Vile, you're an idiot. No dead werewolf, no Masque of Clavicus. Simple as that."

Speak to Clavicus Vile's worshipper after the werewolf is dead and be told:

"Ah, (player's first name), Vile told me to expect you. Well, you fulfilled your end I understand so here's the Masque of Clavicus, just like Vile promised. He's impressed with you, by the way. Not a bad friend to have. Take it from me."
