Detailed Walkthrough[edit]


Councilor Aryon in the Upper Tower of Tel Vos will ask you to go and help defend the home of necromancer Milyn Faram who is being attacked by House Hlaalu.

Stopping a Hlaalu Invasion[edit]

Milyn lives in Odirniran which is east of Molag Mar and south of the Dwemer ruins of Nchurdamz. Take care of all the Hlaalu that are just inside the entrance and speak with Faram (don't kill Vedelea Othril, she's a prisoner). He will ask you to be sure and kill the leader of the force, Remasa Othril, if you didn't take care of her on the way in. Once you've killed Othril, speak to Faram again, who will thank you and offer to tell you a little about his research. If you stay and listen to what he has to say, you'll receive seven Milyn Faram's Scrolls as well as a journal entry.

Return to Aryon to complete the quest. If you listened to Milyn Faram, Aryon will give you a Silver Staff of Hunger and a copy of Incident in Necrom, an Illusion skill book, as a reward. If you didn't listen to Milyn or you killed him, you will only receive the reputation and disposition increase.


  • If you are in both Hlaalu and Telvanni via the glitch you will not be expelled when you kill the intruders.
  • It is not necessary to kill all the Hlaalu invaders, only Remasa Othril.
  • If you kill Vedelea Othril, you will not get the reward and Milyn's disposition will drop by 10.


  • When you say you'll listen, Milyn may give incorrect dialogue, skipping the scroll reward and also the journal entry that would have made Aryon give the staff and book. You may also suffer a 10 point disposition drop with him.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by the Morrowind Patch Project.
    • Pc22.png It can also be fixed from the console by typing player->additem "silver staff of hunger" 1 and player->additem bookskill_illusion3 1.
    • Pc22.png To get Milyn's scrolls and the journal entry, use the console commands player->additem sc_summondaedroth_hto 7 and setjournalindex, "HT_Odirniran", 60.
