No key?[edit]

Hey guys. I've got this for XBox, and every time I try to pickpocket either of the people i'm supposed to, nothing's in their inventory. This a bug or what? --InvertedWalrus 22:34, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

mabye it's beause your snak skill is t low?--GUM!!! 22:52, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
Well CS confirms that he has it, but I'll try pickpocketing him in-game.--TheAlbinoOrcGot_a_question? 23:28, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
In Morrowind, you don't always see everything in a character's inventory when you pick their pocket. You sometimes have to try several times before it appears. rpeh •TCE 09:42, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

I tried multiple times, and it still wasn't there. Wasn't anywhere. I'm not sure how I'll get around this. It's a character designed for sneaking, too. --InvertedWalrus 22:45, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

I just tried in-game and the first time I tried picking Sovor Trandel's pocket, the key was there. You'll need to keep trying. rpeh •TCE 09:15, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

I had the same problem and ended up bribing him. Gave him 100 first. Then 1000. Asked about the manor. Gave another 100. He gave me the key.

Consequences of returning Sovor's key[edit]

"If you get the key by bribing, you can return it to Ondres Nerano and receive ten gold as well as a Disposition increase. Ondres gets pretty mad and "will deal" with Sovor Trandel. Sovor will no longer be at the Council Club making it easier to complete Larrius Varro's quest."

Can anyone confirm this? I did it, and Larrius' quest would not complete for me until I used placeatpc "Sovor Trandel" and killed him myself.

I have preemptively added a note to the Larrius' quest, but I hesitate to remove this page's note should my experience be a fluke.

I've added a {{VN}} tag to indicate there's a conflict here. I'll see if I can dig out an old save to test this at some point. rpeh •TCE 09:12, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I have verified this. If you bribed Sovor Trandel earlier and then gave the key to Ondres Nerano, you will be unable to complete Larrius Varro Tells a Little Story.

At 70+ Disposition[edit]

Re: "You can can also persuade him to 70 Disposition. After his disposition is 70 or over, choosing the "Nerano Manor" chat option will cause him to ask for a little compensation and update your journal. If you bribe again (any amount) he will give you the key."

This gave the impression that any bribe attempt will succeed. However, when he said, "For a small consideration, I might tell you a bit more", and I bribed again, I got:

Bribe fail
I didn't think you were that kind of person.

This was followed by several instances of, "You cannot purchase honor with gold," by which time my disposition was in the 30s and only went down from there. Therefore, I'm adding a qualification to the statement.

I've had better success with Sovor in the past, using Intimidation, but my new PC isn't up to that yet. Downstrike (talk) 21:47, 17 April 2013 (GMT)
