Detailed WalkthroughEdit

A Slave at the Dren PlantationEdit

After her previous quest to rescue J'Saddha, Ilmeni Dren in Vivec will ask you to free an Argonian slave, Hides-His-Foot, from the Dren Plantation north of Vivec and escort him to Sterdecan's Farm.

Free Hides-His-FootEdit

You'll find the slave outside in the plantation, though if the guards see you free him they will attack you. You can try luring the guards away before freeing him. Use a Command Humanoid spell to bring them to the easternmost wall, or taunt them into attacking you, force them to chase you to the eastern wall then cast Calm Humanoid. Once all the guards are out of the way, you can free Hides-His-Foot without being challenged. Alternatively, you can use a Command spell on Hides-His-Foot to move him away from danger, or simply kill the guards first.

Escort the slave to the Sterdecan's Farm to the northeast of the plantation and have the farmer take him (he must be taken to the door of the farmhouse for your journal to be updated).

Return to Ilmeni in Vivec to complete the quest. This is her last quest.


  • This quest can be done by anyone that has freed enough slaves. One of them will tell you about the "Twin Lamps" and the codephrase.
  • If you talk with Hides-His-Foot once you've rescued him, he'll tell you about a secret hidden in a locked room in Dren's cellar. The room is well guarded, but you'll have to take those guards out at one point or another in a variety of other quests.
  • Starting this quest before receiving it (directly going to Hides-His-Foot and free him) will block Ilmeni Dren's two previous quests - Literacy Campaign and The Twin Lamps. Ilmeni Dren will simply say that she has no more business for you when you talk to her.
