Catch a Spy is a Mages Guild quest available in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
- Talk to Ranis Athrys in the Balmora Guild of Mages for duties.
- Travel to all the Mages Guilds and ask about spies.
- Acquire Tiram Gadar's credentials.
- Return to Ranis Athrys.
Ranis Athrys in the Balmora Guild of Mages believes that the Guild has been infiltrated by a House Telvanni spy. The assignment is to visit the Guild halls in Ald'ruhn, Sadrith Mora, Vivec City in order to find the spy and report back to Ranis.
Head to Vivec and speak to Trebonius Artorius. He denies the existence of spies, saying that his advisor Tiram Gadar keeps an eye out for that sort of thing. However, inquire further and Trebonius gives Tiram's credentials which appear to be forged since the High Chancellor, Imperial Battlemage Ocato's name is misspelled.
Return to Ranis with the phony credentials.
