Lost Library of Andule
After turning in all 30 Ancestral Tomb rubbings to Librarian Bradyn you will be given a followup task to find the Lost Library of Andule. Luckily for you it isn’t that lost because Bradyn will mark on the map where it is.
Inside of the library you will see three symbols on the ground. The goal is to step on the tiles with only these symbols to light up the brazier that corresponds with each.
Once all three braziers are lit you will need to talk to a few ancestral spirits and answer their questions correctly to clear the barricading wards.
- House Dres holds slavery to be their sacred right and duty.
- Because Dres feeds Morrowind with its agricultural might.
- Dres believes Dunmer should keep to themselves and focus on improving Morrowind.
- Succeed at business and turn a tidy profit.
- Compromise while always seeking to obtain the best possible deal.
- Acknowlege Dunmer culture, but adapt as necessary to succeed.
- Be preserved at all cost.
- Outsiders may visit, but they must always be watched carefully.
- To fulfull your duty and maintain your honor.
- We must accept and endure the harschness of life.
- The way of the warrior.
After answering all of the questions correctly you will be rewarded with the last book needed. Return to Librarian Bradyn to complete the quest and collect your rewards.
