- Speak with 'Ten-Tongues' Weerhat.
- Locate and kill Ahnia in Old Mournhold: Bazaar Sewers.

Enter the Pawnbroker in Mournhold's Great Bazaar district and speak with 'Ten-Tongues' Weerhat. He will mention that he may have 'special offers' for customers like the Nerevarine. Asking him about why he is able to offer these special prices on scrolls reveals that he is not so inclined to give out details and seems offended that folks would just assume his offers were not legitimate. When pressed further he cracks and reveals that he's been working with a Khajiit named Ahnia who can be found in the sewers beneath Great Bazaar. The entrance is in the southeast corner of the district. Once inside the sewers turn to the west and travel up a short slope to find Ahnia standing near a note on the ground. Attempting to read this note prior to speaking with her will cause her to attack. Speaking with her about 'Ten-Tongues' Weerhat prompts her to hostilities as well. Once she is dealt with, which may be a challenge since she's a level 30 Assassin, take the note and return to 'Ten-Tongues'. The note reveals that Ahnia had given a book to 'Ten-Tongues' Weerhat which he was having a hard time selling due to being indecipherable. This is likely why there was such a discount. Return to the Pawnbroker. Confronting 'Ten-Tongues' with news of Ahnia's death causes him to admit to the whole fiasco and to hand over the stolen book. Attempting to read the book reveals little more than the name of author, Elbert Nermarc. He is an enchanter living in Craftsmen's Hall in Godsreach. He can be found in his room upstairs. Speak with about the stolen book. He'll be surprised and admits to having thought he'd simply misplaced it, then he'll ask for it back. Giving it to him grants a 40 point bonus to his disposition towards the Nerevarine and a small discount on future purchases from him.

- Journal entry 50 above has Weerhat's name spelled as Weeraht. This typo is shown in both the game and the construction kit.
- If the second option is taken during the conversation with Elbert Nermarc he will say, "I can't force you to turn it over, of course, but I spent so much time on the work in that book. Please reconsider." There seems to be no penalty to his disposition for teasing him in such a manner.
