Quest Stages[edit]

The Magister Makes a Move
Finishes Quest Journal Entry
Sun-in-Shadow is probably hatching her next scheme in the Sadrith Mora Hireling House. I should seek her out.
Objective: Meet Sun-in-Shadow in Her Home
Someone ransacked Sun-in-Shadow's home. I should investigate.
Objective: Examine Sun-in-Shadow's Home
Objective Hint: Talk to Arith Sendrul
It appears that Magister Gothren's henchmen abducted Sun-in-Shadow from her home. I must travel to Gothren's stronghold, Tel Aruhn. According to Arith, confronting him directly provides the best chance of diffusing the situation.
Objective: Talk to Magister Gothren
Objective Hint: Travel to Tel Aruhn
Magister Gothren blackmailed me into stealing valuable information from Magister Otheri. If I complete this task, he might release Sun-in-Shadow and bury his grudge against us. Otheri probably tucked his journal away somewhere in Tel Naga.
Objective: Steal Magister Otheri's Journal
I secured Magister Otheri's Research Journal. I should deliver it to Gothren's Mouth, Arith Sendrul. He waits for me in the Council House.
Objective: Talk to Arith Sendrul
Objective: Talk to Gothren's Projection
It seems that Gothren's not done with me yet. He demanded that I seek out Otheri's Dwarven Prism in a kwama mine called Zalkin-Sul.
Objective: Travel to Zalkin-Sul
I found a Nord miner stretching his legs outside Zalkin-Sul. I should see if he knows anything about the mine.
Objective: Talk to Lothnarth
The Nord miner, Lothnarth, warned me about Otheri's guards patrolling the Zalkin-Sul egg mine. I should try to find Otheri's Dwarven Prism without rousing suspicion.
Objective: Explore the Zalkin-Sul Egg Mine
I found Magister Otheri's mysterious Dwarven Prism, firmly locked into an ancient device. Lothnarth arrived shortly after I did. I should speak with him.
Objective: Talk to Lothnarth
Lothnarth gave me a key to the Dwarven ruin, Mzanchend. I must scour the ruins for a few tools to help me unlock Otheri's Dwarven Prism and technical documents for my Nord companion.
Objective: Enter Mzanchend
I entered Mzanchend. Now I just need to find the parts to unlock Otheri's Dwarven Prism.
Objective: Find the Tools to Release the Crystal: 0/4
I collected all the requisite tools to operate Otheri's device. I should use them to unlock the Dwarven Prism.
Objective: Release the Dwarven Prism
Objective Hint: Place the Lever Base Components
Objective Hint: Release the Prism
Objective Hint: Take the Prism
Removing the Dwarven Prism caused some kind of groundquake. I should make haste to the exit.
Objective: Escape the Mine
I've escaped from the collapsing mine with the unique dwarven prism that Magister Gothren wanted. I should bring it to Tel Aruhn.
Objective: Return to Tel Aruhn
I escaped the Zalkin-Sul egg mine before it collapsed. Only one task remains—delivering Otheri's Dwarven Prism to Magister Gothren in Tel Aruhn.
Objective: Talk to Magister Gothren
☑Finishes quest Magister Gothren accepted the Dwarven Prism as recompense for our debt and released Sun-in-Shadow. I should talk to her so we can end this business with the cruel master of Tel Aruhn.
Objective: Talk to Sun-in-Shadow
