Detailed walkthroughEdit

To find out more about the leaflets, travel to Aurane Frernis's shop and confront her. She will become outraged and will ask to find out who is behind this slander. Upon being questioned, Domalen eventually reveals that Galuro Belan, an apothecary in the Telvanni Canton, is producing the leaflets. Once at her shop, Galuro Belan will confess what she has done and offer the Nerevarine 100GoldIcon for keeping the secret. After this, there is the choice to either accept the offer and keep silent, or refuse the bribe and make Galuro Belan's activities public.


Journal Entry
While in Vivec, a man approached me and handed me a leaflet. He told me it contained important information about a local merchant.
I have spoken to Aurane Frernis, the apothecary mentioned in the leaflet I was given. She was furious about the slanderous comments it contained, and offered me a reward if I could find out who was behind the misinformation.
I spoke to Domalen, the Redguard man who handed out the leaflets. He told me that he was hired by Galuro Belan, another apothecary in Vivec, to distribute the materials.
Galuro Belan was ashamed when I approached her with the information that she was spreading lies about Aurane Frernis. She has offered me 100 drakes to keep my mouth shut about this.
I've told Belan I will have no part in her lies. I have agreed to keep Belan's secret. For a modest fee.
