The Sallow Regent Black Book in White Ridge Barrow

The Sallow Regent is an area of Hermaeus Mora's plane of Oblivion, Apocrypha. There is only one zone in the area, The Sallow Regent.

The Black Book needed to access The Sallow Regent is found inside White Ridge Barrow.

The realm is inhabited by Daedra called Seekers and Lurkers. Tentacles constantly breach the acidic dark waters and sometimes whip at you, causing a significant amount of damage if they manage to hit you. The acidic waters with the tentacles are also corrosive and cause damage if stepped in.

The Sallow RegentEdit

The Sallow Regent opens in a dim chamber facing a dark corridor. The darkness here is dangerous, literally; entering it will inflict continuous heavy damage which can not be resisted by any means, including the Become Ethereal shout. Floating Wisp-Lanterns drift above the corridors and chambers, providing safe havens of light to walk in. Other forms of light work as well (e.g. torches, Candlelight, Magelight), so long as they keep away the darkness.

To the right of the starting point is a pod. A corridor to the south leads to a room with a pod to the left. The next corridor ascends to a larger room guarded by two seekers. A pod is to the left, and in the darkness straight ahead are two pedestals and a stack of unusable books with a scroll of conjure flame atronach, a random soul gem, and copies of the Spell Tome: Detect Dead and the Speech skill book 2920, Second Seed, v5. Behind the pedestals is another pod. Through the darkness to the south is a table with three soul gems (one black, one grand, and one random) and a copy of the Spell Tome: Conjure Seeker (only if your Conjuration skill is at least level 40). The exit is to the southeast, with a pod to the left of the exit.

At the top of the corridor is a series of platforms twisting upwards, with a lurker on the platforms to the right. Beyond the lurker is a gap, but a bridge will automatically raise. Beyond the bridge is a table with a grand soul gem, a scroll of dead thrall, and a copy of the Spell Tome: Fast Healing. The path continues to another bridge followed by another lurker, then splits around two pillars before again merging and leading to a set of stairs.

At the top of the stairs is the black book The Sallow Regent, a vessel to the left, and two tables with a scroll of conjure storm atronach, a Spell Tome: Flame Thrall, and four soul gems (two black, one common, and one leveled). To exit this part of Apocrypha, use the non-circular part of the black book.

The three Abilities offered by this book are:
