Valaste asks the Vestige to go to the Ayleid Ruin of Silumm and retrieve a few tomes. When the tomes have been takes Arch Mage Shalidor appears and speaks to the player. When the Vestige returns to the Mages Guild Valaste helps to summon Shalidor. Shalidor informs the player that the haven Eyvea he had created for all mages had been stolen by the daedric prince Sheogorath. He asks the player to retrieve four tomes that will help him recreate Eyvea. Shalidor opens a portal to Cheesemonger's Hollow.

There the player meets Haskill. Haskill demands that the player closes a portal that different daedra are pouring out of. When the player has closed the portal Haskill opens the door to the Hollow. The player needs to make their way past Scamps, Golden Saints and Dark Seducers and then defeat the boss Clannfear Gutsripper. But after the player takes the first tome, the rest disappears and Sheogorath appears instead. Sheogorath promises to give the player the books if they complete various tasks for him. Sheogorath then summons Shalidor and informs him about the deal and also that Shalidor won't be able to read the books. Shalidor then sends the player back to the Mages Guild hall. The player gives the tome to Valaste and is rewarded for their efforts.
