Estate Sale is a quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal. Geon Auline, who can be found at his house, is a collector of fine artefacts and asks the Nerevarine to obtain a missing artefact for his collection.


The ardent collector of fine artefacts Geon Auline has managed to obtain three out of a set of four unique daggers that were crafted in the Second Era for four Dunmer nobles. The missing dagger is named Droth Dagger and, as Geon has found out, is currently in the possesion of the recently widowed Arnsa Thendas. Geon asks the Nerevarine to try and persuade Arnsa to sell the dagger, or obtain it from her by any other means.


  • Talk to Geon Auline and accept the quest.
  • Acquire the Droth Dagger from Arnsa Thendas.
    • (Optional) Sell the dagger.
  • Return to Auline.


After accepting the quest from Geon Auline, further inquiry about "Arnsa Thendas" will reveal that she is about to auctioning off some of her late husband's effects. Geon fears that the dagger will be sold and that he will lose track of it. He also admits that he is not allowed on the auction.

At Thendas Manor, Arnsa Thendas will ask the Nerevarine if they are here for the estate sale and if they knew their late husband. The Nerevarine has now the choice to buy the Droth Dagger from her for 600GoldIcon or raise her disposition over 80 and then convince her to give the dagger to them by telling her that they knew her husband through the Imperial Legion. Alternatively, the dagger can be stolen from her.

The Nerevarine should now return to Geon Auline to deliver the dagger. He will be very happy and reward them with 800GoldIcon. Alternatively, they can sell the dagger and tell Geon what they have done. However, he will be very unhappy about it, and his disposition drops to zero.
