I agreed to help Aemilia Hadrianus kill a Goblin that Chef Amadour has been feeding.

Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Talk to Amadour.
  2. Collect sugar leaf.
  3. Poison Zich.
  4. Return to Aemilia.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Near the bridge east of Cropsford, near the skyshard, you will see Aemilia Hadrianus sneaking around:

"You haven't seen a sneaky little Goblin around here, have you? I'm gonna kill that thing, no matter what Amadour says."
What's going on?
"Chef Amadour has adopted a Goblin as a pet, named it Zich. He thinks the nasty thing is good luck. I don't like its beady little eyes. I'd love to poke them out!"
How can I help?
"I can't get close enough to kill it—the filthy thing's too wary. But Chef Amadour feeds it. Maybe if you got some of its food, I could add a special ingredient.
Please go ask the chef. His house is just up the hill."
I'll go talk to him.

At this point, you can question her further:

"Please hurry. I feel like I need a bath every time I spot that little beast."
What do you have against Goblins?
"You're not soft on them, are you? Amadour's bad enough, the way he moons over them. Don't need more like him around here.
They're dirty, sneaky, traitorous, vile little beasts. I'll kill every one I see, especially around here."
Why especially here?
"Haven't you seen them all? Open your eyes! They're always lurking around the village, looking for things to steal or people to kill. And eat, probably.
No one here takes them seriously, but they're going to overrun this village someday."

In any case, find Chef Amadour's house down the road from Aemilia and talk to him:

"Don't touch anything! Everything's in its proper place; I don't want anything moved.
I hear your Goblin food is delicious. Can I have some?
"Just hand you one of my famous dishes? Not a chance. Perhaps a trade though. I'm running low on sugar leaf, which grows wild hereabouts.
You collect three leaves for me and I'll give you some of my famous Goblin's Delight."
I'll get your sugar leaves.
Do you really have a pet Goblin?
"I don't think of him as a pet. He's more of a companion, a cure for my loneliness. No one appreciates how cut off from civilization I feel out here. It's hard being a culinary genius in a village of peasants."
But a Goblin?
"Don't you tell me you're another Goblin-hater? Aemilia is bad enough, with her unreasoning prejudices. I don't want any more like her skulking around.
Goblins are greatly misunderstood. They're actually kind, loving beings, when treated properly."
That's an interesting theory.
"But it's fact! My interactions with Zich prove it. When treated with kindness and respect, Goblins are friendly, loyal, and loving.
If only others were willing to give them a chance, there'd be a lot less unreasonable hatred of Goblins in Tamriel."
Where are you from?
"I was born and raised in High Rock, in the great city of Daggerfall. I was never lonely there, let me tell you. I had many friends and hordes of admirers who appreciated my genius. I never spent a lonely day–or night—in Daggerfall."
So why did you leave?
"Unthinking prejudice isn't limited to remote villages. It taints big cities too. I believe all creatures are meant to live together in peace and harmony, a view widely despised. I left Daggerfall and eventually settled here. And here I'll stay."

The Sugar leaves are large plants found in the general vicinity of Amadour's house. Collect three and return to him:

"I can smell the sugar leaf on you. Did you get three leaves?"
Right here.
"Excellent! I have a little Goblin's Delight left from my last batch. Didn't want to part with it until I had enough sugar leaves to make another batch.
Here you go–enjoy!"
Thanks, I will.

Once you have the Goblin's Delight, return to Aemilia, who will be lurking near the bridge:

"Judging by that sickening smell, you got some of Zich's food."
Yes, the Goblin's Delight is right here.
"Now to mix in my special ingredient ... there! Zich sometimes sleeps under the bridge. Go put the food on his pallet and hide nearby. He won't come by while you're there.
Time for that rodent to die!"
I'll put this on his pallet.

Jump underneath the bridge, and then leave the food on Zich's sleeping pallet. Once you do, hide behind the nearby tree and wait. Within moments, Zich will appear, eat the poisoned food, and die. Once you have witnessed this, return to Aemilia, who appears to be deluded in regard to the details of Zich's death:

"I heard a lovely, agonized shriek from Zich. Is it dead?
"That's a relief, though I wished I'd killed it myself. I really wanted to stab it over and over again.
Maybe I'll go jab the body a few times, just to be sure."
