- Speak to Imsin the Dreamer in Buckmoth Legion Fort about Orders.
- Travel to Ald'ruhn, and search Drinar Varyon's house.
- Grab the Dwemer Tube hidden among the red pots on the table.
- Return to Imsin the Dreamer and report your findings.
Imsin the Dreamer in the Buckmoth Legion Fort will ask you to find proof that Drinar Varyon is smuggling artifacts through Ald'ruhn.
Find Evidence of Smuggling
If you've done some of the Hlaalu faction quests, you might already know that Drinar is a smuggler. At any rate, you'll need to enter Drinar's house and have a look around (his house can be found on the west side of Ald'ruhn, by the Ald Skar Inn). The door is unlocked, and Drinar is home. The locked chests contain some raw ebony, but chances are that opening them and taking the ebony will start a fight, which will greatly reduce your reward. Even if you do manage to steal the ebony, it won't count towards completing the quest. You can, however, find a single Dwemer Tube among the red pots on the large table near Drinar, who won't notice when you take it.
Return to Imsin
Return to Imsin with the evidence (the Dwemer Tube) to complete the quest.
- If you kill Drinar, Imsin is disappointed but impressed with your honesty in admitting it: you receive five Legion reputation points and her disposition still increases by five.
- There are also lines of dialogue describing Vorar Helas as the smuggler, scripts to update the quest when he is killed. Evidently at one stage he was the quest target instead of Drinar.
The following Quest_ID and Index codes can be used with the
