|Augur of Dunlain|
|Faction||The College of Winterhold|
Augur of Dunlain is a divination artifact found within The Dark Midden level of The Midden of The College of Winterhold. Previously a gifted student of the college, the Augur of Dunlain ended up in its current state due to an overly zealous pursuit in his discipline of magic. Since, it has been known for its wisdom, but the people of the college do not like to talk about it.
Becoming a Master of Restoration brings the Dragonborn to the Augur once more, at the suggestion of Collette Marence. Seeking approval from the Augur, the Dragonborn removes all equipment and is required to survive against several ghosts that wield Destruction magic.
An augur is defined as a prediction based on signs or omens. In ancient Rome, often a group of Augurs were tasked with interpreting the will of the gods from omens.
