You came here doing His Old Self Quest from Kaenra - The Goose and Fox (03)

01 Entrance from Copperlane (07)



NPC: False Purnisc

Talk to him and kill him. Also kill all guards.

Uncover what happened at Purnisc's house in Copperlane.

The house next to the Copperlane market that has become a svef den. Purnisc was home, but something about the man seemed unusual.

I gave Purnisc the ring as requested, yet he didn't seem to recognize it. I could go back to Kaenra now, but there's something peculiar about this situation.

The man downstairs who claimed to be Purnisc attacked me once I started asking questions.

I killed the man who was impersonating Purnisc. Perhaps the real one is around here somewhere.


Kill Guards

ITEM: Rusty Bronze Key


Open Doors with Rusty Bronze Key


A man lies, bound and bloodied, on the floor before you. His face is a tapestry of bruises, and blood is spattered across several corners of the room. The man cringes and sobs as you approach.

NPC: Real Purnisc

I found the real Purnisc tied up and bloodied, locked in an upstairs room in his own home. He informed me that the impostor was a wizard named Nyrid and asked me to kill him.

I let the real Purnisc know that he was safe from further harm. He then begged me to refrain from telling his lover, Kaenra, about his involvement in the svef trade, and promised me a discount on his stock in exchange for convincing her to return.

Find Kaenra in Copperlane.

Considering all that has happened and all I have learned while at Purnisc's house, I should find Kaenra and tell her what happened.

I spoke with Kaenra earlier at the Goose and Fox.
