Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Writ[edit]

Any of the Morag Tong Masters at the guildhalls will give you a writ for Ranes and Navil Ienith, who can be found in the Dren Plantation.

Navil and Ranes Ienith[edit]

Both brothers can be found in the basement of the Dren Plantation Villa, behind two locked doors (Ranes doesn't exist until you attack Navil or Galos Farethi and will appear behind you once you do). Be careful, these two are powerful and can be a tough fight, especially with their paralyzing daggers.

Return to a quest giver to receive 2,000 gold for the writ.

Notes[edit]

  • This quest is basically identical to the Thieves Guild quest to kill these two Camonna Tong brothers, so you might have already completed it. If you have already done so, the Master will accept the quest as complete; however he will be upset because you have killed them dishonorably without a writ (although all that happens is you lose the 2,000 gold reward). However, the Thieves Guild will not care if they are already dead. So if you plan to work for both factions, it is better to do the Morag Tong quest first. You could also do both at the same time.
  • If your execution is reported as a crime, you will get 5 pts less Disposition increase.
  • If the brothers are already dead when you get this contract, your disposition with the quest giver drops ten points.
  • If you talk with Galos Farethi or Orvas Dren after killing the two brothers (and before completing the quest) they will be angry for the death of their comrades and will attack you. Galos Farethi is not needed for any quest, but you will obviously be unable to negotiate with Orvas Dren to complete his related quests - either for becoming the leader of House Hlaalu, or being recognised as their Hortator in the Main Quest. So, instead, you will have to kill him. As it turns out, killing Orvas is a viable alternative solution for both quests, since it breaks the link between the Camonna Tong and House Hlaalu so they can no longer oppose you within the House.

Bugs[edit]

  • Killing both the brothers sometimes will not complete the quest when you talk to the Morag Tong guild members.
  • In the GotY version, killing Navil first gets the journal entry "Ranes Ienith has been slain..." and killing Ranes gets the "Navil Ienith has been slain..." entry.
    • Pc22.png The console command: Journal MT_WritNavil, 100 should allow you to finish the quest successfully. ** The bug may also be avoided if you kill Ranes (the brother with the paralyzing daggers) first and then Navil.
  • In the vanilla version of Morrowind, you can't accept Writ for Dram Bero if you accept this quest first. This is fixed in the GotY edition.

Quest Stages[edit]
