Quest Stages[edit]

The Cursed Skull
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
I need to find Jee-Lar down by the water and see if he can direct me to local Argonians who may have knowledge of the Golden Skull of Beela-Kaar.
Objective: Talk to Jee-Lar
Jee-Lar asked me to interview the Argonians on the list he provided while he talks to a few others. We need to see if the Blackguards approached them so we can figure out what Margus plans to do next.
Objective: Talk to Taxatl
Objective: Talk to Dus-Geet
Objective: Talk to Peesha
I spoke to all of the Argonians on my list and found out that Margus is looking for a place called Norg-Tzel to perform a ritual that will reveal the location of the cursed skull. I should return to Jee-Lar and compare notes.
Objective: Talk to Jee-Lar
Jee-Lar learned that three Blackguards carry pieces of a map that, once combined, show the location of where their expedition ship is moored. I need to recover two of the map pieces while Jee-Lar goes after the third.
Objective: Find the Blackguards' Map Pieces
I should return to Concordia's camp outside Stormhold and see if she can make sense of these map pieces I found.
Objective: Talk to Concordia Mercius
Concordia assembled a map from the pieces that Jee-Lar and I recovered. With the map and the information I received from the Argonian slaves, I should be able to find the Blackguard expedition ship along the river near Deep Graves.
Objective: Locate the Blackguard Ship
I located the Blackguards' expedition ship. Now I need to find Jee-Lar and discuss our next move with him.
Objective: Talk to Jee-Lar
I need to sneak aboard the Blackguards' ship and convince the pilot to take us to the forbidden island, Norg-Tzel.
Objective: Commandeer the Blackguards' Ship
Now that we reached the island, we need to look around and find Margus and the Blackguards.
Objective: Explore Norg-Tzel
I need to explore the island and find Margus Derius. I should also look around and see if I can determine what the Blackguards are up to.
Objective: Find Margus Derius
Optional Step: Investigate the Blackguards' Dig Sites
Jee-Lar thinks that Margus Derius has entered the xanmeer to perform the ritual that will unleash the power of the cursed skull. I should enter the xanmeer and find him.
Objective: Enter the Xanmeer
I can hear Margus Derius. He's definitely started the ritual. I need to reach him.
Objective: Enter the Ritual Chamber
I entered the ritual chamber. Now I need to put an end to Margus's ritual.
Objective: Disrupt the Ritual
The ritual consumed Margus Derius, but I still have to stop it. Jar-Lee suggests that I need to disengage each cylinder to deactivate the flow of energy.
Objective: Disengage the Ritual Cylinder
Objective Hint: Kill the Rising Dead
Now I need to disengage the second ritual cylinder.
Objective: Disengage the Ritual Cylinder
Objective Hint: Kill the Rising Dead
Now I need to disengage the third ritual cylinder.
Objective: Disengage the Ritual Cylinder
Objective Hint: Kill the Rising Dead
Now I need to disengage the fourth ritual cylinder and that should end the flow of energy and stop the ritual.
Objective: Disengage the Ritual Cylinder
Objective Hint: Kill the Rising Dead
Disengaging the ritual cylinders unlocked a door at the back of the chamber and revealed the hiding place of the cursed skull. I need to defeat the final guardian before I can claim the relic.
Objective: Take the Golden Skull
Now that I stopped Margus Derius and retrieved the Golden Skull of Beela-Kaar, I should return to the boat and leave this forbidden island.
Objective: Return to Concordia Mercius
Objective Hint: Talk to the Pilot
Now that I'm back in Shadowfen, I should return to Concordia's camp outside Stormhold. I need to tell her what happened at Norg-Tzel.
Objective: Talk to Concordia Mercius
☑Finishes quest I should give the Golden Skull of Beela-Kaar to Concordia and Cyrodilic Collections for safekeeping.
Objective: Talk to Concordia Mercius
