Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Modryn OreynEdit

After completing Unfinished Business, Modryn Oreyn gives you your next duty. Your fellow guildmates Dubok gro-Shagk, Rellian and Vantus Prelius have apparently been getting rowdy at a tavern in Leyawiin, which is bringing the guild into disrepute. You're to head south to find out what's going on.

"Causing trouble, yes. Causing much trouble."

Five Claws LodgeEdit

Head to Leyawiin and ask around about the rebellious guildmates. Asking either local citizens or the members of the Leyawiin chapter of the guild will result in you being pointed to the Five Claws Lodge. Sure enough, the tavern has been taken over by the loutish trio, as evidenced by the overturned tables and chairs. The three drunkards are hurling insults at each other and trading barbs with the desperate innkeeper, Witseidutsei.

Speak to Rellian or Dubok, who will both deny causing any trouble, instead blaming the situation on the Blackwood Company, and who will point you to Vantus. Vantus will explain that he is angry because the Blackwood Company has recently started to out-compete the guild for contracts, leaving them all out of work. It's clear the only way to get them to sober up is to find a contract for them.

Equal Opportunity EmployerEdit

Ask Witseidutsei or around town about any jobs that might be available and, as long as the person's disposition is above 40, you will be pointed in the direction of Margarte. Despite citizens telling you Margarte visits the Five Claws Lodge, she can in fact mostly be found either at her house just southeast of the tavern or at the Three Sisters' Inn. If she's not in town, she is likely just outside the western gate collecting ingredients.

When you speak to her, she mentions that she is a trade consultant, but that her true passion lies in alchemy... if only she had more time to collect ingredients. If you ask her about Fighters Guild Jobs, she'll offer that she could use some Ogre Teeth and Minotaur Horns but isn't sure whether to give the job to the Fighters Guild or to the Blackwood Company. She suggests that if you were to find five portions of Ectoplasm, then the deal would be sealed in your faction's favor.

Ectoplasm can be found on any type of ethereal undead, which includes all ghosts and wraiths. These enemies start appearing in undead dungeons from level 6. More conveniently, however, you will find five leveled ethereal undead residing in the undercroft of Leyawiin's very own Great Chapel of Zenithar, with ghosts appearing from level 1. If you require silver weapons to deal with them, in the local guild hall you can find two silver shortswords (one in the 2nd Floor West, one in the 3rd Floor West) and two silver longswords (both in the 3rd Floor West).

Once you have collected the samples, return to Margarte, who will delightedly bestow her ingredient collection contract upon the guild.

You're HiredEdit

Return to the three guildmates in the Five Claws Lodge, who seem happy to finally have some work and will thank you for your efforts.

Return to Modryn Oreyn in Chorrol for your standard level-dependent gold reward, one Fame point, and advancement to Swordsman. Modryn will have no further tasks for you at this time and instead directs you to Azzan in Anvil and Burz gro-Khash in Cheydinhal.


  • Maglir in Skingrad can also point you in the direction of the Five Claws Lodge in Leyawiin, despite not being involved in the quest, as he is a member of the Leyawiin Faction.
  • Once the quest has been completed, you can find the three companions searching for Ogre's Teeth near Undertow Cavern.
  • After you have collected the ectoplasm for Margarte, she will subsequently buy Minotaur Horns and Ogre's Teeth from you, though at terrible rates. See Margarte's page for details.
  • The journal entries (see below) show the original design of this quest. In the released game, the drunkards are merely belligerent rather than violent, but your journal will still mention needing to subdue them.


  • Sitting on one of the upturned chairs would cause your character to appear suspended in midair.
  • Sitting on one of the overturned stools would also have a similar effect.

Journal EntriesEdit

Stage Finishes Quest Journal Entry
10 Modryn Oreyn has assigned me another of my duties. I am to travel to Leyawiin and find out why three members of the Fighters Guild--Dubok gro-Shagk, Rellian, and Vantus Prelius--have been causing trouble.
20 I have been told that I can find the three Fighters Guild members in the Five Claws Lodge, likely causing trouble. They warn me that it will be difficult to subdue the three men.
30 I've found the three Fighters Guild members, arguing loudly in the Five Claws Lodge. I will need to subdue them, either by knocking them unconscious or using a spell.
40 I've managed to subdue the three Fighters Guild members. I should find out why they have been causing so much trouble.
50 The men tell me that the reason they've been spending time in the tavern is sheer boredom. The Blackwood Company has been stealing all the Fighters Guild work in the area.
55 I've agreed to find work for my three guildmates here in Leyawiin. Perhaps some of the locals know of some.
60 I've heard a rumor that Margarte, who lives in Leyawiin, may have jobs for the Fighters Guild.
70 Margarte has told me that she would pay well for minotaur horns or ogre teeth. However, she doesn't trust the Guild yet. I'll need to bring her five portions of ectoplasm, and she'll give us her business.
75 I've brough [sic] Margarte the ectoplasm she requested. She'll now pay Fighters Guild members for minotaur horns and ogre teeth. I should tell the men back at the Five Claws.
80 I've told Dubok, Rellian, and Vantus about Margarte's need for ingredients. They've agreed to accept the long-term contract. As this should keep them out of trouble, I should report back to Oreyn.
100 Finishes quest  Oreyn was pleased with my efforts, though troubled that the Blackwood Company is stealing Fighters Guild contracts.
  • Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
  • Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in random order.
  • If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
  •   It is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering setstage FGD02DandD stage, where stage is the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages. See SetStage for more information.
