Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Ienas Sarandas has lost more than moneyEdit

In Ald'ruhn, ask around and you will learn that Ienas Sarandas has lost his patrimony betting on guar and has sold his family silverware to pay his debts. Go to any of the merchants and they will offer you work. It seems that Ienas Sarandas has failed to pay up for the goods he has purchased.

Guiding him back to the right pathEdit

Look for Ienas Sarandas in his house. Ask him about the overdue payments. Don't bother threatening him, as it does no good. There are three ways to convince Ienas to do the right thing and give you the goods to return on his behalf.

You can persuade him if you have a Speechcraft skill of at least 50, or you can raise his Disposition toward you to at least 60. Alternatively, you can quote an excerpt from the book Saryoni's Sermons if you have a copy in your inventory or offer him a sip of Greef, Cyrodiilic Brandy, or Flin to convince him to mend his ways (he will not take the book or the drinks from you; you just have to be carrying one of them). There's a copy of Saryoni's Sermons on a small round table in his house he won't mind you taking.

Using any of these techniques results in him giving you the items and joining the Temple, and earns you 1 Reputation along with 30 disposition. In some versions of the game, the drink may not give the reputation point. Sarandas will move to the Ald'ruhn Temple as soon as you leave his house. It is also possible to kill Ienas to complete the quest, but you'll miss out on the reputation point and the merchants won't be happy with you.

Bad PathEdit

Another option is to get the Ienas Sarandas conversation topic from one of the merchants, talk to Sarandas, get him to give you his clothing (using one of the above methods), and keep it for yourself. The Brocade Shirt and Silk Pants both have the enchant values of their exquisite counterparts, while the Racer Suede Belt, Glass Ring, Ebony Ring and Firejade Amulet have the enchant values of their expensive counterparts. You can also just kill him for the items, but note that if you do so, you can still complete the quest but your disposition with the locals may actually decrease.

The MerchantsEdit

The merchants are quite easy to find, three of them are right outside Ienas' house. The enchanter and the fine clothier are located in the Ald'ruhn Manor District on the bottom floor. The merchants also give you some gold and better prices, along with praise for your skilful solution. If you have killed Ienas however, they will still give you the gold but lower their disposition.

NotesEdit

  • This quest is actually five smaller quests combined into one, in terms of how they appear in your journal. Oddly, these quest names misspell Ienas' last name as "Sarandus" instead of "Sarandas".
Item/s to be Returned Vendor Gold Reward
Bevene Releth and Ienas Sarandus (Town_Ald_Bevene)
Firejade Amulet Bevene Releth 25
Bivale Teneran and Ienas Sarandus (Town_Ald_Bivale)
Brocade Shirt and Silk Pants Bivale Teneran 50 (see Bugs)
Daynes Redothril and Ienas Sarandus (Town_Ald_Daynes)
Ebony Ring and Glass Ring Daynes Redothril 50
Llether Vari and Ienas Sarandus (Town_Ald_Llethri)
Designer Shoes Llether Vari 50
Tiras Sadus and Ienas Sarandus (Town_Ald_Tiras)
Racer Suede Belt Tiras Sadus 25
  • While the gold reward remains the same regardless of how you recovered the items, it is not the case for the other rewards.
    • Peacefully persuading Ienas will earn you +40 disposition with the vendors, who will be pleased with the way you handled the affair.
    • Killing Ienas will, understandably, penalize you with -20 disposition from each vendor.

BugsEdit

  • If you retrieve the shirt and pants for Bivale Teneran peacefully you won't get the 50 gold reward. The script that is supposed to give you the gold has been mistakenly attached to a comment on the previous line, so it never executes. Completing the quest by killing Ienas will give you the reward, but also the negative consequences.
  • The responses to each peaceful resolution seem to be mixed up: the high speechcraft or disposition method refers to you quoting the Sermons, whereas the Sermons method has both a seemingly persuasion-based method as well as the Sermons quoting. ?
