Dream of Hircine
While sleeping, I had a strange dream. In it, the Daedra Prince Hircine spoke to me, telling me to journey to the Tombs of Skaalara. There, I am to keep the Skaal warriors from retrieving the Totem of Claw and Fang. I should kill any of the Skaal I meet in the Tombs. From what I saw in the dream, it appears the Tomb is located on the Felstaad [sic] [Do not change this to Felsaad. This misspelled word is how it appears in-game.] Coast, southeast of the Skaal Village.*Quest accepted
I have killed all of the Skaal warriors who came to retrieve the Totem of Claw and Fang.
Hircine came to me again in a dream. He was pleased that I had defended the Totem of Claw and Fang from the Skaal, and has blessed me with sharper claws to better tear the flesh of my enemies.
